Quotes

Locke: [to teach Charlie, who is struggling through heroin withdraw, a lesson] What do you suppose is in that cocoon, Charlie?
Charlie: I don't know. A - a - a butterfly, I guess.
Locke: No, it's much more beautiful than that. That's a moth cocoon. It's ironic - butterflies get all the attention, but moths, they spin silk. They're stronger. They're faster.
Charlie: That's wonderful, but...
Locke: You see this little hole? This moth's just about to emerge. It's in there right now, struggling. It's digging it's way through the thick ...

The Rock-God

Charlie Pace is obliged by John Locke to stay clean and feels the effect. Meanwhile, Sayid Jarrah, Kate Austen and James "Sawyer" Ford tries to triangulate the French distress signal through antennas to find where the transmission source is located. When the cave collapses burying Jack , Charlie rescues him and win his inner battle against the drugs.

In my opinion, "The Moth" is the best episode of "Lost" up to this moment, when the former life of Charlie Pace is disclosed and how he involved with drugs. I liked the metaphoric message using the fight of the moth to open the cocoon, and the butterflies flying in the end. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "The Moth"

Note: On 19 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
