Storyline

A delirious Eko wrestles with demons from his past, while Locke, Sayid, Desmond, and two other castaways, Nikki and Paolo, head back to The Pearl -- one of the Dharma Initiative's island stations -- hoping to find a computer that they can use to locate Jack, Kate and Sawyer. Meanwhile, Jack doesn't know whom to trust when two of "The Others" (Ben and Juliet) seem at odds with one another when Ben wants Jack to perform surgery on him to remove a potentially dangerous tumor whereas Juliet does not want Jack to do it.

Quotes

Mr. Eko: I ask for no forgiveness father for I have not sinned, I have only done what I needed to do to survive. A small boy once asked me if I was a bad man, if I could answer him now I would tell him, that when I was a young boy I killed a man to save my brothers life. I am not sorry for this, I am proud of this. I did not ask for the life that I was given but it was given none the less, and with it I did my best.

Eko is completely disturbed, haunted by his past, in Nigeria and leaves the tent looking for his brother Yemi in the woods. Locke organizes an expedition with Sayid, Desmond, Paulo and Nikki to chase Eko and to go the Pearl hatch, expecting also to find a computer and locate Jack, Kate and Sawyer. Meanwhile, Jack discloses that Ben Linus has a tumor in his spine, finding the real intention of his abduction. Juliet plots and proposes a plan to Jack to eliminate Ben. Eko is attacked and killed by a dark fog.

"The Cost of Living" is another great episode of the third season of "Lost". I regret the death of Eko, one of my favorite characters of this show. I am also curious about the honesty of Juliet with her plan: does she really intend to kill Ben, or is she only testing Jack? My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

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