Forty-Eight Days of the Lives of the Other Survivors
17 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The tail section of the airplane crashes in the ocean, and the survivors reach the beach. Leaded by Ana Lucia and Goodwin (Brett Cullen), they are attacked by "The Others" while sleeping at the beach and some of them are abducted, including two children. Ana Lucia suspects that Nathan (Josh Randall) is infiltrated in the group and a few days later she finds the truth. After forty-eight days, they meet Shannon and Sayid in a tragic way.

Here in Brazil, the Second Season of "Lost" is still on the episode number seven, which discloses the forty-eight days of the lives of the tail section survivors and their brutalization process. Their lives were indeed tougher than the other group, explaining the reason why Jin, Michael and Sawyer were so badly treated on their first contact. Now only on next Monday I will be able to see what happened with Shannon. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Not Available"

Note: On 28 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
