Storyline

Desmond's latest fragmented vision suggests that his old girlfriend, Penny, will crash-land onto the island. Desmond organizes a posse of himself, Hurley, Jin, and Charlie to come along with him into the jungle expecting Penny to parachute onto the island. But the vision also suggests that Charlie will die by stumbling upon a trip-wire if he comes along with them. But Desmond insists that Charlie must come along to make the vision come true. Meanwhile, Desmond recalls his days in a monastery in Scotland over 10 years earlier after leaving his old fiancée, Ruth, a few days before their wedding where he later met Penny. In the present, Kate attempts to flirt with Jack, but he instead has eyes for Juliet, and Kate has another one-night stand with Sawyer. Written by jgp3553@yahoo.com

Quotes

Kate Austen: It's strange huh?
Jack Shephard: What's that?
Kate Austen: Being back, not, looking for a way out of a cage. Not finding a reason to go running off into the jungle again; I almost don't know what to do with myself.
Jack Shephard: Well enjoy it. I'm sure something will go wrong soon enough.

Catch-22
20 December 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"Catch-22" potentially could have been an absolutely amazing episode but ends up being a very good one instead. The trouble with this episode, aside from the truly awful love rectangle/square rubbish, is that it coasts on its premise rather than taking full advantage of it. The flashbacks to Desmond's time in a monastery reveal how Desmond met Penny and the circumstances leading up to it, and why/how he started saying 'brother' all the time. There's one intolerably awful accent in the flashback (even worse than the Australian accent in "Numbers"), but it's mostly quite good, though again it doesn't go beyond the call of duty and do more than fill in the blanks. The main themes explored here with Desmond are ones we have seen in previous flashbacks, only done with less emotionality and verve. Similarly, the main on-island plot dealing with Desmond's fractured 'visions' which he believe will lead to a reunion with Penny is about as good as it sounds, but no better. The episode has an intriguing ending and doesn't interrupt the flow of the latter stages of season 3. The direction by Stephen Williams is disappointing.
