Storyline

Claire begins to find out the true relationship between Desmond and Charlie and about Desmonds new ability to see into the future and of his repeated fates of Charlie, she also has a ideal to use migrating birds from the island to send a message out, but does not know why Desmond want to sabotage her. Claire flashes back to several years earlier in Australia where the raven-haired Claire and her mother were in a car accident, leaving her mother in a coma. Claire then met her long-lost biological father: Dr. Christian Shepherd, Jack's father. Meanwhile, a power struggle emerges between Sayid and John, and Kate as they search out what appears to be some kind of complex that may house "The Others," as they force the captive Mikhail, with Danielle Rousseau tagging along, to the "Others" camp which leads them to a mysterious sonic perimeter surrounding their base.

Goofs

When Claire follows Desmond, and Desmond catches the bird, his right shirt sleeve changes positions between shots at around (time stamp 33:30). As he reaches out to pick up the bird, his right sleeve is fully extended. When he turns to show the bird to Claire, the sleeve is up above his elbow. See more »

Quotes

Kate: I told you that your daughter was living with them... and you haven't asked me a single question about her.
Danielle Rousseau: Your friend - Jack. You care about him?
Kate: Yes.
Danielle Rousseau: Imagine 16 years from now. You thought he was still alive. But in your heart you know that he wouldn't remember you. He wouldn't know you. He wouldn't even know that you ever cared about him. I haven't asked you questions about my daughter, because I do not want to know the answers.

Par Avion
15 December 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"Par Avion" is reminiscent of one of those slightly tiresome season 2 episodes with a lot of walking to places, an irrelevant, time-wasting on-island plot to go with the walking, and a 'what the hell?' moment to cause people to forget the hour gone by and tune in next week. The episode is held afloat by the fact that the walking to places part of things (specifically it's Kate, Sayid, Locke, and Mikhail making their way from the Flame to the Barracks) is quite enjoyable, and by the excellent flashback which features a major revelation. The plot with the birds is unnecessary and entirely pointless, so much so that it has become something the writers themselves joke about and point to as the ultimate example of stalling due to network negotiations. All in all this is merely a linking episode with no real power on its own, but the flashbacks are good and well-acted.
