powerful episode- ps major death spoiler, don't read if don't wanna know
2 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

or to be known is the one where Eko dies, and the entire tailies plot line is made redundant,But nonetheless it has its moments. Eko is a very strong character, and his departure is moving. Agbaje carries the story well, and nails his final monologue evoking sympathy for a man who is essentially a murderer. Also well executed was the subplot with Elizebeth Mitchell's wonderfully chilling Juliet, who propositions a sinister deal with Jack. But the main gripe is with the two new characters, Paulo and Nikki, who are not only badly acted but seem to get more screen time every episode. They're bland and annoying please make them go away. But on the whole a memorable episode
