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.

Revelations and Hope
17 March 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Claire recalls her car accident in Australia, when her mother was severely wounded, and while in coma in the hospital, she had a chance to know her biological father and learn about migration of birds. When she sees seagulls in the island, she decides to capture one tagged bird to send a message to the biologists that monitor the birds. However, Desmond sabotages her trial, and she does not understand the reasons. Meanwhile, Sayid, Kate and Locke find a set of towers surrounding and protecting the camp of The Others. When they successfully trespass the perimeter, they see Jack and have a surprise.

In this great episode, there is an important revelation about the bonds between Claire and Jack. The rescue team finds the secret spot where The Others live and the mysterious behavior of Jack increases the mystery in the plot. And the most important, there is a sequence with the charismatic characters of the survival camp that we fans have learned to love. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 8 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
