Trivia

One of the notes in the big pile of tubes mentions a person called S.R. performing an activity in the Swan station; this is most likely Stuart Radzinsky, the designer of the Swan station, who worked inside the Swan at the time (which is confirmed in the same episode by Kelvin Inman). 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

Desmond: Three days before you came down here, before we met, I heard a banging on the hatch doors, shouting. But it was you John, wasn't it? You say there isn't any purpose, there's no such thing as fate. But you saved my life, brother, so that I could save yours.
Locke: No, no, no, no! None of this is real! Nothing is gonna happen, we're gonna be OK!
Desmond: I've gotta go. And you've gotta get as far away from here as possible.
Locke: Go where? Stop!

A Moment of Decision
7 July 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

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.

This episode is one of the best of the Second Season. Unfortunately, we lovers of "Lost" can see the lack of respect the producers of this stunning series have with the fans. In the USA, the air date of this episode was 24 May 2006. Therefore, along this period, fans have to wait for the Third Season in a very suspenseful situation, with Jack and his group surrounded by "The Others" and finding the truth about Michael and the death of Ana Lucia and Libby; John locked inside the hatch without the intention of pushing the button and Mr. Eko in despair outside the hatch. I hope the fate of "Lost" be better than "Angel" and its very disappointing conclusion (or lack of conclusion) after five seasons. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 2 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD (divided in two parts).
