Storyline

Jack, Kate and Charlie return to the group, but the transceiver is broken. Sayid Jarrah fixes the apparatus and organizes an expedition with Kate, Charlie, Shannon Rutherford and her brother Boone Carlyle and the dangerous James "Sawyer" Ford to hike and climb a mountain to transmit a SOS. The group receives a sixteen years old distress call from a French woman in the island instead and kills a polar bear. They return to the survivor's base and decide to hide the information to preserve the hope of the group. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The case that flies out of the locker and hits Fredric Lehne on the head was made of rubber. Lane had tiny tubes hidden in his hairline which then released blood to run down his face. See more »

Goofs

During the flashback sequences for both the pilot and the finale, different characters are meant to be traveling through different sections of the plane, although it appears that, with the exception of business class, the same section was used for filming but with different people. This becomes a problem when spoken lines referring to seat numbers as well as the footage from right before the crash doesn't match at all to the boarding footage in the finale. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Charlie: [as Jack fiddles with the transceiver] Anything?
Jack: You keep asking if there's anything.
Charlie: Pardon me for appearing desperate, but before the pilot was *ripped* from the cockpit, he did say that no one's going to find us unless we get that transceiver working. So... is there anything?
Jack: No.
Charlie: Okay.

"Walt, do you want to know a secret?"-John Locke
30 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The secret is that LOST is only getting better! An excellent episode with lots of drama, action and an amazing ending.

The summary of this episode is that Sayid, Charlie, Kate and Shannon (I think that's everyone) go on a hike to get the transceiver better reception so they can be rescued. The plot twist in the last 10 minutes is something that I don't think anyone saw coming. It's just so well-executed that you think you're actually lost with these people.

The standout performance is probably Naveen Andrews who plays Sayid, this is the first episode he's heavily involved in and sometimes you even forget it's a performance. This episode has no laggy parts, it's full of action and a seriously awesome score. It definitely keeps your attention the whole way through and the episode only gets better as you keep watching it.

10/10
