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

Broadcast restrictions prevented any shots of Charlie ingesting heroin. The producers got around this problem using clever cutting. See more »

Goofs

After Sawyer kills the polar bear, Boon says something like "Is this what killed the pilot?". But he doesn't know anything about it, the only people who know that the pilot was found alive and then killed by a monster were Jack, Kate and Charlie. 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.

The second half of the pilot reveals that the transceiver is damaged. Once it is repaired, several survivors decide to get it to higher ground. The rest of this episode plays out somewhat like the first episode. The group tromps through the woods and not surprisingly runs afoul of an island monster. When they are finally able to use the transceiver, they are in for a very large shock. As the episode ends, we know a bit more about some of the characters and realize not everyone is who he or she appears to be. The episode holds onto its edge, although it is pretty clear the show is headed into Twilight Zone territory in future. Wait until you see what the monster turns out to be, for instance.
