Storyline

Sayid, Kate, Jack, and Juliet arrives back at the camp of survivors, and the group does not accept the presence of Juliet. Jack protects Juliet, while she recalls her arrival to the island and her relationship with Ben. When Claire gets sick, Juliet advises that Claire was the subject of an experiment with pregnant women carried by her, and she brings the necessary vaccine to inoculate and heal Claire. Later, Juliet recalls how she first arrived on the island three years earlier, her first meeting with Ben and the Others, and about the last assignment Ben gave to her a couple of days ago. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The Dharma logo in the show is encircled by symbols known as "Trigrams". There are eight Trigrams altogether, each representing an aspect of life. One of the Trigrams can be seen on the tower of the submarine as Juliet is standing on it. This Trigram represents the 'front door', the beginning or your life path, and career. See more »

Goofs

When Juliet goes over Rachel's chart with Ben to confirm that her sister's cancer has returned, she somehow fails to notice in the upper right hand corner that apparently her sister has apparently switched genders as well. The chart says this information belongs to a male patient, a 5'11, 187 pound male. See more »

One of Us
20 December 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

I think "One of Us" deserves a slightly higher reputation than it currently has. I cannot think of anything about the episode that is weak. The flashback shows us how Juliet got to the island and goes further in exploring her experiences on the island, particularly her relationship with Ben (which would be expanded on later in "The Other Woman", a far weaker episode in every way). The flashbacks also reveal some important aspects of how the Others lived before the plane crashed, what some of their experiments dealt with, how they gathered information, and Juliet's struggle with life on the island, her desire to leave.

On the island the drama starts on a low scale with Juliet arriving back at the camp and Claire falling ill, but slowly as we begin to see the bigger picture we begin to see the strength of the writing for this episode and the wonderful way it was structured. Ultimately it ends up a fascinating exploration of power and trust on the island, and the final revelation, technically part of a flashback, makes for an excellent ending. On-island flashbacks can either be terrific or underwhelming, but this episode is right up there with "The Brig" for me, though I prefer that episode for other reasons.

"One of Us" is a brilliant episode with a particularly neat narrative structure and some very good answers and plot advancement. The performances are also terrific as is Jack Bender's direction. A fine episode indeed, and part of the tremendous second half of season 3, possibly the best run of episodes the series has ever had.
