Jin jumps Michael and tries to beat him to death for no apparent reason, which gets him handcuffed to the wreckage until "why" can be figured out. While gathering water, Jack starts to talk about moving the survivors to the near-by cave for safety and practicality, but is met with resistance and reluctance. The survivors are torn between having a better, safer place to camp, or staying on the beach to watch for a possible rescue. Flashbacks by Sun, reveal pieces of her life with her husband, Jin, before the plane crash, and she reveals a secret to Michael that even her own husband is unaware of - she speaks English. Locke confronts Charlie about his drug use. Written by Lynne Boris Johnston

The Past of the Koreans Sun and Jin Kwon
8 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Jin Kwon attacks and beats Michael Dawson, the survivors defend Michael and arrest Jin with a handcuff. Dr. Jack Shephard, Kate Austen and Charlie Pace go to the water source to bring water for the other survivors, and Jack tries to convince the survivors to move to the caves nearby the source of water. The group splits in two, with part staying at the beach expecting to find some rescue – ship or plane. Meanwhile John Locke finds out that Charlie is addicted and takes his drugs.

This episode discloses the love story of Sun and Jin Kwon and the dark past of Jin. The communication between the Korean couple and the group improves when Sun reveals to Michael that she can speak English, but Jin does not know. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "House of the Rising Sun"

Note: On 18 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
