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 Jack, Sayid and Sawyer board the "Elizabeth," Hume fires several rounds through the hatch. They find him cradling a semi-automatic shotgun, probably 12-gauge. But the holes in the hatch are too small for buckshot and too large for slugs. See more »

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).
