Storyline

Sawyer discovers just how far his captors will go to thwart any plans of escape he and Kate might have when they forcibly and surgically implant a pacemaker in his heart which will detonate if he tries to escape again. Jack is called upon to scrub up in order to save the life of one of "The Others,", a team leader, named Colleen, who was shot by Sun during the theft of the sailboat. Meanwhile, Desmond's behavior begins to perplex Charlie, Hurley, and the rest of the survivors when he starts construction on an unknown device outside Claire's tent. Written by Anonymous

"The Others" bring Sawyer to a room, injects a needle in his sternum and when he wakes up, Benjamin Limus tells him that a pacemaker has been implanted in his heart and any physical effort for him will be lethal, since his heart will blow-up. Sawyer recalls his period in prison, when he betrayed another prisoner to commute six years of sentence and be released earlier. Colleen, the women shot by Sun, is submitted to a surgery, has complications and Juliet calls Jack on to help her, but it is too late. Paulo is playing golf on the beach, and Desmond asks for a club to build a weird apparatus. Benjamin brings the controlled Sawyer with him to the top of a hill to show where they are.

"Every Man for Himself" is one of the best episodes of "Lost". The coward and despicable behavior of "The Others", leaded by the Machiavellian Benjamin Limus (aka Henry Gale), irritated me. Sawyer shows through flashback how low she may go to take advantage on a situation, which is the reason of the title of this show ("Every Man for Himself"). The attitudes of Desmond are intriguing, and Paulo has again another short participation, but now at least with a few lines. The reference to a submarine increased the mystery about who "The Others" are. Evangeline Lilly is really a very pretty woman. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 6 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
