Storyline

Nikki comes to the beach where Sawyer and Hurley are playing ping-pong, stumbles, whispers some unintelligible words and apparently dies. Hurley doesn't understand Nikki's words: "Paulo lies..." and the group searches Paulo in the woods. They find him like Nikki and they believe the couple have been poisoned. Meanwhile, the past of the actress Nikki and the Brazilian chef Paulo in Sydney is disclosed, when they poisoned Nikki's lover and stole a fortune in diamonds, and detailing how they landed on the island and about them trying to retrieve the stolen diamonds with both attempting to betray each other showing their interactions with all the other characters, which were only glimpsed in previous episodes. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

This episode is also a take on a play called 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead', which chronicles the lives of two characters played out against the backdrop of events from Shakespeare's Hamlet. In Hamlet, the two characters are charged with determining Hamlet's motives, and plans. Instead they, themselves are killed. The characters are thrust into the universe of Hamlet in much the same way that Paulo and Nikki were thrust into ours, by the will of the writer. Inasmuch, they seem to serve no valid purpose and are generally mocked throughout for being the extraneous folk they are. In "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead", however, much like Expose is Nikki and Paulo, the playing field is reversed and they are the major characters with Hamlet seeming to be the character with misappropriated importance.

Goofs

In Season 2 Episode 21 (Lost: ?) (about 28 minutes into the program), when the group finds the doors to the Pearl Station, it takes Eko and Locke both to open each of the two doors. When another group returns to the Pearl Station, (in Season 3 Episode 5 Lost: The Cost of Living, 25 minutes into the episode), Sayid and Desmond repeat the process of opening the doors. In this episode, (Season 3 Episode 14, about 24 minutes into the program), we find Paulo has entered the Pearl Station alone to hide the diamonds, he hides as he hears Ben and Juliet enter the station, You hear Ben comment something like "Who left the doors open?" We must assume that when Ben and Juliet left, they closed the doors behind them, leaving Paulo inside. If it took two people to open the doors from the outside, how do we expect one person standing on a ladder in a vertical shaft to open the doors from the inside? See more »

Irrelevant hogwash
21 January 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Nikki who? Who cares about these people? I am going through the show on Netflix and I cannot imagine, had I been following the episodes as they aired, that I'd be able to deal with going from the incredibly interesting plot of Jack and the "others" (which is, after all, the entire POINT OF THE SHOW) to these two nobodies and their stupid lives previous to the crash. WHO CARES? I practically skipped this entire episode the moment I realized we were in for another time-waster. Not only are these two characters wholly irrelevant, but I also had to stare at that "Hurley" character's irritating, crying bulldog of a face. This is another character which gets way too much face time. Ridiculous.

I've been following this show for "three years" at this point and ALL I want to know is: who are "the others"? What is their work? What experiments do they make? Where are the kidnapped people? And, of course, the one question that keeps us all watching: will they ever get off the island?? The flashbacks involving Locke, Jack, Kate, and Sawyer are all incredibly interesting and well-written, and not only because these are themselves very interesting characters. Others--like the two, three episodes that were wasted on Eko's story, a tragically misused character who had so much potential or the obligatory crap about that stupid and ridiculously unrealistic interracial duo--are a complete and utter waste of time and energy.

And so was this episode. Christ, what a turd.
