Episode cast overview, first billed only:


As dawn ushers in another day on the island we see Jin and Sun sharing an intimate moment that is long overdue. Meanwhile, Kate is up in a tree picking fruit from the tall branches. As she slides back down the trunk, she slips, almost falling and spilling several mangoes to the jungle floor. As she crouches to collect them, she hears something behind her and turns to see a magnificent black horse standing in the morning mist. In a flashback, a young Kate waits on the stairs of her modest house when a pickup truck swerves down the dirt road and stops in front we get our first look at her stepfather and her mother's choice for a father: Wayne. He's happy to let Kate help him to bed, as long as it affords him another chance to lay his drunken hands on her. So when Kate tells him goodnight, she really means it.

When Kate is riding in the car with the marshal, they crash and the airbag deploys and knocks out the marshal. Shortly thereafter, she drives the car away. In most cars, after the airbag deploys, the whole steering column needs to be replaced and the car wouldn't be able to drive at all. See more »


Kate: [sees a large horse and thinks she's hallucinating] Do you see that?
Sawyer: If you mean the big ass horse in the middle of the jungle, then, yes, I see it.

Do not Use the Computer for Communication
1 May 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While taking care of a feverish Sawyer, Kate freaks out and recalls her crime trying to protect her mother against her abusive and drunken stepfather. Shannon is buried with the presence of the survivors except Kate, Sawyer and Ana Lucia. John Locke shows the film to Mr. Eko and Michael, and Mr. Eko gives the missing part, which was found in the other side of the island, with the instruction to not use the computer for communication.

In this episode, the original crime of Kate is finally disclosed. The advice in the piece of film retrieved by Mr. Eko is the greatest attraction for the next episode, since Michael is using the computer for a mysterious communication with Waltz. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 29 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
