Trivia

The sum of 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 is 108: the number of minutes on the timer in the hatch. 108 times 5 is 540, the number of days Dr. Candle indicates in the orientation film that a team will live in the Swan station. See more »

Goofs

In this episode, Desmond expresses doubt that "the button" is real, yet in the season finale, we see that he once did fail to push the button in time and saw firsthand that it was very real, as the metal contents of the hatch were thrown through the air by the magnetic energy. See more »

Quotes

John Locke: Why?
Anthony Cooper: Excuse me?
John Locke: Why?
Anthony Cooper: There is no "why". You think you're the first person that ever got conned? You needed a father figure and I needed a kidney.

Leap of Faith
15 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sawyer, Michael and Jin are captured by "The Others" and Ana Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez) is arrested with them. Locke recalls his rehabilitation with a support group, where he met and had an affair with Helen (Katey Sagal). However, although with the support of Helen, he was not able to get free from the figure of his cynical father. Meanwhile, Kate hits Desmonds and accidentally shoots the computer. While trying to fix the apparatus, Desmond gives a film to Jack and Locke solving partially the mystery of the place. Desmond recognizes Jack from the brief encounter he had with him, but provokes a short circuit in the electric installation. Sayid and Hurley come to help.

In this episode, the secret of the shelter is partially disclosed through the projection of a film called "Orientation Film" of the Dharma Project for Station 3 (Swan). It is very impressive how the needy character of John Locke became strong in the island. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): Not Available.

Note: On 26 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
