Storyline

Bernard tries to convince the survivors to build a S.O.S. signal with rocks on the sand, hoping to be seen by a satellite or an airplane. His first encounter with Rose, who was terminal, and their romance, are disclosed through flashbacks. Bernard never gives up searching for the cure of Rose before crashing the island. Meanwhile, Jack invites Kate to join him in the woods to propose to "The Others" a trade between Henry and Walt. John Locke is intrigued with the words of Henry about the unnecessary use of the computer. Is Henry playing him for a fool? Elsewhere, Charlie assists Mr. Eko in building a proposed church for the rest of the survivors. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

During a flashback, Bernard and Rose visit "Isaac of Uluru", a faith-healer at an apparent sheep station in the shadow of Uluru (aka Ayers Rock). Anyone who has visited Uluru would know that it is a sacred site and is situated in a sprawling national park. The only non-aboriginal settlement anywhere near it is the Yulara Tourist Resort 18km (11mi) away. See more »

Goofs

The restaurant where Bernard proposes to Rose in Niagara Falls, NY is at an impossible location, given the view out the windows. The shot seems to be from the Observation Deck, on which there is no restaurant. See more »

A low-key gem, undeservedly dismissed as 'filler'
15 October 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"S.O.S." isn't a perfect episode, nor is it the most eventful of "Lost" episodes nor did it come along at the perfect ime, nor is it a masterpiece of character-driven drama. It is, however, a completely pleasant, genuinely well-written gem which takes a look at Bernard and Rose, two of the few 'normal' people on the island, and certainly one of the more realistic and authentic couples. The flashback scenes are genuinely effective and involving, and even tie into the mythology (through the faith healer and the 'energy areas', one of which is the island, obviously) for those who believe the mythology is the main driving force of "Lost".

The episode is notably well-directed by Eric Laneuville, and very well-written by Leonard Dick and Steven Maeda, and as much as the plot involving Bernard and the sign he wishes to make is unnecessary, it's hardly aggravating or worth getting upset about, and is very, very far from the most annoying episode-contained storyline on the show. It's a good bit of sometimes humorous fun, actually.

The acting is excellent as well from L. Scott Caldwell and Sam Anderson as Rose and Bernard, and the scenes involving Fenry Gale are really fun to watch as well. The episode as a whole is just a really good, enjoyable episode, with an ending that sets up a superior, devastatingly good episode to come.

8/10
