Jack, Sawyer and Sayid swim to the boat and find a completely wasted Desmond. His traumatic past experience before sailing to the island is disclosed through flashbacks. Sayid plots a plan with Jack to surprise "The Others" in case Michael is double-crossing the group. John Locke convinces Desmond to invade the hatch, which is protected by Mr. Eko, and not press the button of the computer to see what will happen. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

After Desmond is released from military prison and dishonorably discharged from the Royal Scots Regiment of the British Army, Penelope's father reveals Desmond's last name when they have a talk in the limo. Desmond's full name is Desmond David Hume. David Hume, like John Locke, was an important philosopher of the 18th century. Hume was a Scotsman, just as Desmond is (hence he was in the Royal Scots Regiment). Both were Empiricists, and Hume was heavily influenced by Locke. This would serve to explain the friendship between John and Desmond on the show, and why Desmond goes along with John's plan to stop pressing the button without having seen the Pearl Orientation tape. It appears the show's writers have a habit of naming characters after famous philosophers in history. Rousseau is named after Jean-Jacques Rousseau, also of the 18th century, a French-Swiss philosopher of the Enlightenment whose political ideas influenced the French Revolution. Fleeing criticism in Switzerland, Rousseau took refuge and lived with Hume in Great Britain for a time. See more »

Goofs

When Pennys voice-over reads Desmonds letter when he's suicidal after Kelvin's death, she misses out a sentence (probably just done for flow of script), but in the next scene, the layout of the letter has changed - the missed out sentence is in a different position on the letter. See more »

Quotes

Penelope: All we really need to survive is one person who truly loves us. And you have her. I will wait for you always. I love you.

Great Show
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show start out with the boat. Desmond was i it. Then they went to try to save Walt. And Lock things that the button pushing is a big joke at the same time Desmond found out that hes the one that crashed the plane. Eko tries to open the door that Jhon locked on him, and Charlie helped him find the Bomb. While Sayid and Jack plan is that, Sasyid is to find the others first and see who and what the other are. And find if there armed and have any weapons.

Micheal takes Jack, Swayer, Kate, and Hugo in a trap. And they get caught.

After the show there were more questions then answers, but that what makes the show great. And can't wait until Season 3
