Storyline

Jack, Kate and Sawyer fight over possession of a newly discovered locked metal briefcase which might contain insights into Kate's mysterious past. More of fugitive Kate's background story is revealed, showing her participating in a bank robbery in New Mexico just to uncover something hidden in one of the safety deposit boxes. Meanwhile, Sayid asks a reluctant Shannon to translate notes he took from the French woman. A rising tide threatens to engulf the fuselage and the entire beach encampment, and Rose and a grieving Charlie tentatively bond over Claire's baffling disappearance. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When Kate is in the bank vault, the safety deposit box she opens is 815--the same as the flight number (Oceanic 815). See more »

Goofs

Sawyer's fingers are okay after Sayid pushed the bamboo under his fingernails. They should be blue/black. Wounds like that have to grow out See more »

Quotes

Michael: You're wasting your time, man. If you pick the lock on a Halliburton, I'll put you on my back and fly us to L.A.
Sawyer: You better find yourself a runway, daddy, 'cause there ain't a lock I can't pick.

The Dark Past of Kate Austen
9 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Kate Austen is plucking and picking fruits and seeds in the woods, and James "Sawyer" Ford meets her. They find a beautiful lake with a waterfall and decide to swim. They find on the bottom of the lake a wallet, and Kate, while recalling her past, tries unsuccessfully to take the wallet from Sawyer. Meanwhile, Rose helps Charlie Pace to recover, and Sayid Jarrah asks Shannon Rutherford to translate some French maps he stole from Danielle Rousseau.

"Whatever the Case May Be" discloses the dark past of Kate Austen, but the reason for the dispute for the wallet sounds silly, at least at this moment of the story. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Whatever the Case May Be"

Note: On 20 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
