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 comic book that Walt reads is Green Lantern/Flash: Faster Friends #1, published by DC Comics, and a polar bear really appears in it. 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.

"Guys, where are we?"
14 December 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The first part of Lost's pilot was intriguing, suspenseful and exciting. The second part is just the same, only it adds more mystery, setting events in motion for episodes (and seasons) to come.

After witnessing the brutal death of Oceanic Flight 815's pilot (Abrams regular Greg Grunberg), Jack, Kate and Charlie return to the camp with the plane's transceiver. Sayid Jarrah (Naveen Andrews) fixes the device and decides to find a spot on the island whee he can pick up a radio signal. He's joined by Kate, Charlie, the unreliable Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and siblings Boone Carlyle (Ian Somerhalder) and Shannon Rutherford (Maggie Grace). Meanwhile, Jack makes sure everyone else on the beach is fine, most notably the highly pregnant Claire (Emilie de Ravin), and a weird bond takes shape between Walt Dawson (Malcolm David Kelley), a young boy who's on the island with his father Michael (Harold Perrineau), and John Locke (Terry O' Quinn), a man who has "dark secrets" written all over him.

Abrams and Lindelof move the story forward with no rush, devoting approximately the same amount of time to each character. As such, we get juicy revelations about some (a flashback reveals that Charlie has a heroin addiction) and clues concerning the real nature of others (a person named after a famous philosopher? Hmmm...). It will take a very long time before everything adds up, but like in The X-Files, only five minutes are necessary to realize it will be worth every single second of it.

Oh, and as far as cliffhangers go, Lost is on par with 24: "Guys, where are we?"
