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

Did You Know?


The book in the parachutist's bag is titled 'Ardil-22'. This is the Portuguese version of Joseph Heller's 'Catch 22' - the name of the episode. The men in the Arctic listening station at the end of Season Two spoke Portuguese. See more »


In Desmond's vision, Charlie, with a mostly clean shirt, is hit by an arrow in the throat. However, it is obvious that the bloodstain which would have been caused by the bleeding on the shirt was there prior to the actual penetration. See more »


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.

A Greater Sacrifice
21 April 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Desmond has a premonition with the death of Charlie in the woods and Penny coming to the island in a helicopter. On the next day, he organizes an expedition with Hurley, Jin and Charlie, expecting to find Penny, but not disclosing the whole truth to the group. Meanwhile he recalls his period in a monastery, after leaving his fiancée Ruth a couple of days before their wedding, where he became a monk and later met Penny. Kate flirts with Jack, but he gives a cold treatment to her and has dinner with Juliet. Kate has one night stand with Sawyer.

The episode "Catch 22" is centered in Desmond, who recalls how he met his beloved Penny when he was fired from the monastery after getting drunk. Between his love for Penny and the life of Charlie, he acts like Abraham sacrificing his most precious love. A new character is introduced in the plot, probably related to the past of Desmond. The "square of love" between Jack, Juliet, Kate and Sawyer is the weak part of the story. I was intrigued with the Brazilian edition of "Catch 22" (called "Ardil 22" in Portuguese) that Desmond finds in the forest. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 11 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
