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?

Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

Terrible Episode
19 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know about everyone else, but I thought this was one of the worse episodes yet. It was like they were just stalling time with this episode, because they didn't know what else to do. So they did flashbacks for that couple, who frankly I am not that interested in. It was boring, melodramatic, and uneventful. The surprise ending to me was nothing special, because it really did not add anything new, and explained nothing, except that Michael is still alive. I think Michael Emerson (Henry Gale) is a genius and I thought he could have had a bigger part in this episode. I think Lost is the most brilliant show ever to hit television, but sometimes it gets a little too "soap opera like" and this really annoys me. I am also frustrated that at the end of each episode some major thing happens and you don't get to find out what it was all about during the next episode! (example: Libby). What do you all think? Was this episode not just dull and pathetic?
