Unpleasant but solid episode
31 July 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

Janet Tamaro's only script for "Lost", "Do No Harm" is one of the most unpleasant episodes of the show and really quite hard to sit through, but it's a solid dramatic effort which emphasizes some of Jack's key character traits while developing his relationship with his wife. The island events deal with the aftermath of Boone's fall from the Nigerian drug plane while Claire gives birth to Aaron and Sayid takes Shannon for a romantic dinner.

The flashback scenes with Jack are the highlight of the episode, although the final five minutes feature wonderful use of montage to contrast birth and death, and Jack's mute conversation with Shannon is very tastefully-shot and acted and is quite powerful. We see Christian Shepard again, a fascinating character used well here.

I was personally sad to see Boone go as I found him quite an engaging character, but his death was handled quite well overall.

There's not really much to say about this episode. It's a straightforward drama with nothing new to add to the mythology or characters other than the two major events already covered.
