Storyline

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

A Relationship Built On Lies
13 October 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sayid lies to Jin, and convinces Sun to sail to a dock to make a bonfire on the beach and signalize to Jack, Kate and Sawyer but actually he wants to attract and ambush a group of "The Others". Sun recalls her childhood, when she broke a glass ballerina and lied to her father, blaming the maid. Later she cheated Jin with Jae Lee, her father finds the truth and he orders Jin to get rid of Jae Lee lying about the reasons. Jin lied when he said that he cannot understand English. Kate and Sawyer are sent to a field for labor work, and Henry Gale proposes Jack to send him back home if he cooperates with him.

"The Glass Ballerina" discloses a little bit more the relationship of Sun and Jin and we see that their relationship was built on lies. Meanwhile, Juliet shows how dangerous she is and Henry Gale discloses his leadership and how connected he is with the world outside the island to Jack, and introduces himself as being Benjamin Linus, in the best and most intriguing part of this episode. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 5 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
