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

What 'The Long Con' should have been.
7 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Every Man For Himself' is easily one of the best Sawyer-centric episodes. It contains both elements of Sawyer's deceptive past and elements of exactly what the Others are capable of. This episode proves once again that the first six episodes of the third season mean business. They didn't exactly follow the normal Lost season opener time-line, which EMFH proved. Sawyer's struggle between escape and the dark clutches of Ben had me on the edge of my seat during the entire episode. Ben and Sawyer showed wonderful chemistry episode, because of their opposite mannerisms and intentions. Watching them try to top each other led to one of the best hours in television history.

Another beautiful, jaw-dropping hour of Lost.
