There Is Always a Choice
14 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Jack Shephard decides to find John Locke. Sayid Jarrah meets Locke and recalls his past, when he was caught in London by CIA and the British Secret Service. As a former Republican Guard of Iraq, he is blackmailed by the authorities to find a terrorist Melbourne, and the information would be exchanged by the address of Nadia. Charlie Pace gives a nickname to Claire Littleton's baby, Turnip-Head, and takes care of him while Claire rests. Locke shows Sayid the Beechcraft and the place where it was perched in the canopy of the tree. He explains Sayid that he had a charley horse and Boone climbed the tree to investigate the interior of the airplane. The keys of the wallet with the guns are stolen from Jack.

"The Greater Good" is a very complex episode, with many parallel stories. The betrayal of Sayid to his friend Essam Tasir (Donnie Keshawarz) is disgusting, but at least he learned that there is always a choice in life. My vote is nine.
