Libby tells Hurley that she can't believe he doesn't remember her from the plane, because he stepped on her foot when he was getting on. She says she remembers him, the last person to get on the flight, arriving sweaty and wearing headphones, and then stepping on her foot. However, Libby was seated in the tail section, and thus Hurley, who was in the middle section, could not have passed her on his way to his seat. Additionally, in the flashback scene to Hurley catching the flight seen in Lost: Exodus: Part 2 (Part I) , it shows that while Hurley was the last person on the flight and he arrived sweaty, he did not put his headphones on until after he had already sat down. This is either a mistake made by the writers, or Libby is lying and inventing a story to distract Hurley from remembering her from the institution. Libby could have seen Hurley get on the plane last and remembered him wearing headphones from another point during the flight, and used that info to concoct her story. See more »

Underrated episode
1 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Probably the most underrated episode of Lost. Great imagery, quite disturbing and it's quite amazing that they made us sympathize with Charlie despite his actions in this episode. The flashback tied in perfectly with what was happening on the island.

Seeing Charlie trying to save Aaron on the beach and then Locke hitting him and everybody else turning their back on him was gut-wrenching. We can really understand his actions in 'The Long Con' after this scene.

I don't watch Lost for the mythology or the action, I watch for the characters. And this was a great character based episode. We learned a lot about Charlie, why he's so attached to Claire and Aaron and how he desperately wants a family to take care of.
