On the sailboat, Sayid lies to Jin, and convinces Sun to sail to a dock to make a fire camp on the beach and signal to Jack, Kate, and Sawyer but actually he wants to attract and ambush a group of "The Others". Sun recalls her childhood in South Korea, when she broke a glass ballerina and lied to her domineering and brutal gangster father, blaming the maid. Later as an adult, she cheated Jin with Jae Lee. Her father found out and he ordered Jin to murder Jae Lee, while lying about the reasons. Jin also reveals that he lied when he said that he cannot understand any English. Meanwhile, Kate and Sawyer are sent to a field for labor work where they try to escape, but are thwarted by Juliet. Also, the Others leader, Ben Linus, offers a deal with Jack that he will send him back home if he cooperates with him and his people. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Loosing momentum
14 October 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Don't know about you guys,but episode 2 looks too much like the episodes in the middle of season 2 - not much happening,boring flashbacks and interesting final 3 minutes. During last season I hoped the producers will successfully avoid the mistake of having episodes who's only purpose is to stretch the show another couple of seasons. Episode 2 is not Lost.It is not why we spend so much time trying to figure out the plot,the maps,the island. What about the island?the monster?The mystery?This is becoming too much O.C. For the first time,after seeing episode 2,I asked myself "Is this shoe that good???". What need is more Locke,Mr.s Eko,The island itself,the monster,the polar bear.That is Lost for me.
