Sun wrestles with the thought of telling Jin a newfound secret that she might be pregnant which threatens to upset the entire balance of the survivors' community. Sun recalls her time in South Korea how she couldn't tell Jin that she may not be able to bear children, while carrying on a possible tryst with her English-language tutor. Meanwhile, Locke enlists Ana Lucia to interrogate the prisoner, Henry Gale, in order to extract more information than he, Jack or Sayid could. Whe Henry draws Ana Lucia a map to the location deep in the jungle about a hot-air balloon he arrived in, she, Sayid, and Charlie venture into the jungle to find the balloon. But is Henry Gale telling them the truth? Written by Anonymous

Daddy O!
23 March 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Primarily a Jin and Sun centered episode this one. It showcases the parenting aspirations the couple has had since there days back in Asia. It also showcases a little more about Jin's character and how he has changed from the stubborn and raging worker to the understanding husband in the middle of nowhere. It also looks back at how Sun managed to get her training of English without her husband's knowledge.

Back on the island Sun looks forward to rays of hope amid the chaos that seems to be brewing in the hatch with the prisoner. As Sayeed, Ana Luisa and Charlie take off towards the map that is supposedly leading to the prisoner's air balloon, suspicion once again rises its head to the strange prisoner's authenticity.

Supporting cast in the form of Kate, Sawyer, Rose and her husband Bernard chip in as appropriate.

A neatly executed episode with some reflection into Jin and Sun's traumatic past.
