When Kate is in the car with the Australian farmer, the image was horizontally flipped to appear how Australian cars have right-side drivers and left-lane driving. As the U.S. Marshall's GMC truck pulls alongside, the "C" from the grill logo is visible in the farmer's rear view mirror when its reflection should be horizontally flipped. See more »

Kate is found out, although her reasons for being a fugitive from the law are not spelled out in this episode. We see a flashback where she stays with a farmer, who eventually betrays her for the reward money. The group who heard the distressing French transmission decides to keep it from the others, for fairly obvious reasons. Michael frets over his son's growing attraction to the weird Mr. Locke. Characters are being developed and better defined in this episode. We also discover the good doctor is not always willing to play the white knight for the survivors. The episode also offers a bit of cheesecake involving Kate that was overdue, in my humble opinion.
