Did You Know?


After the scene where Locke and Eko watch the orientation video for the "Pearl" station of the Dharma Initiative, a gag commercial is included in the next actual commercial break. This commercial sings the praises of the Hanso Foundation, which sharp-eyed viewers would recognize as being the copyright holders from the Dharma Initiative tape. This commercial included a website and a toll-free telephone number at the end ( and 1-877-HANSORG, respectively). Viewers who called the phone number were treated to an interactive presentation wherein they could listen to the voice mail messages of senior executives of the Hanso Foundation, and, when the phone call was "hacked" by a mysterious woman called Persephone they could obtain a password. When visiting the website, viewers could play an interactive game which eventually unlocked access to the Hanso Foundation's homepage. If they tried to sign up for the Hanso newsletter on this site, the site would be "hacked" by Persephone, who would ask for the password from the telephone number. Those with the password were signed up to access "secret" anti-Hanso news and messages from Persephone. See more »

Answering the call of the ? symbol.
11 May 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

An Eko-centric episode the "?" explores the aftermath of the tragic events that rocked the castaways in the previous one. As the main characters John, Locke, Sawyer, Kate and Hurley come to terms with the incident in the hatch, Locke and Eko set out to find out where Henry took off to. As it turns out Eko is on a mission of his own trying to figure out the symbol ? which Locke had drawn on his sketch. We see flashes of Eko's life in Sydney as a priest who comes in contact with his brother through a stranger. We also witness the tragedy that struck the hatch boil down to a room temperature as Michael continues to remain a mystery.

An excellent LOST episode with many interesting turns.
