Did You Know?


In Jack's first pre-wedding flashback, he does not sport his distinctive shoulder tattoo - something which is explained later in the series. Indeed, in the Blu-ray presentation, it can be clearly seen that Matthew Fox's real tattoo has been painted over. See more »


When Sayid is looking through one of the heroin bags we get to see a close up of his hands, his nails are quite long, but in the next shot his nails are clipped. See more »


Jack: [needs blood for transfusion for Boone, but Charlie only found out four] You only asked four people?
Charlie: I asked everyone. No one knows their blood type! *I* don't know my bloody blood type!

Unpleasant but solid episode
31 July 2008 | by ( – 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.
