Storyline

Jack, Kate and Sawyer are kidnapped by "The Others" and put in different environments. Kate has a shower, gets a dress and is invited to have breakfast on the beach with the leader Henry Gale (who identifies himself under his real name of Ben Linus); Sawyer is locked in a cage for wild animals and without food or water, being "awarded" when he hits a lever as if he were an animal; and Jack is locked in a sort of aquarium, being interrogated and controlled by his handler and the Others doctor, Juliet, who has a complete report about his life. Meanwhile, Jack recalls his divorce process with Sarah and how his desperation and rapid meltdown affected everyone around him, including his father. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Michael Emerson who plays Ben Linus (in season two known as Henry Gale) was originally contracted to appear in just three episodes but the producers were so impressed by him that they contracted him for a further five episodes (making eight in total). In season 3, he is a regular cast member. See more »

Goofs

Early in season 3, flight 815 is seen on the island breaking up in-flight only a few 100 metres off the ground by Ben and Juliet. However in season 1, when the tail breaks off the plane is at cruising altitude well above the cloud layer. See more »

Weird Episode
11 October 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jack, Kate and Sawyer are kidnapped by "The Others" and put in different environments. Kate has a shower, gets a dress and is invited to have breakfast on the beach with Henry Gale; Sawyer is locked in a cage for wild animals and without food or water, being "awarded" when he hits a lever as if he were an animal; and Jack is locked in a sort of aquarium, being interrogated and controlled by Juliet, who has a complete report about his life. Meanwhile, Jack recalls his divorce process with Sarah.

The beginning of the Third Season is a weird episode focused in the former life of Jack and disclosing some aspects of the life style of "The Others". After three months without "Lost", I found "A Tale of Two Cities" intriguing, and it seems that the story is going to have a big twist, now finally disclosing "The Others". Henry Gale increased his importance in the series, since he is one of the leaders, and a new Machiavellian character, Juliet, is introduced. What I like most in "Lost" is that I do not guess what may happen in the next episode. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 3 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD (divided in two parts).
