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 »

Waste of an hour
29 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This latest episode does nothing more than re-tell a centuries old story we've all been told before, the only originality lying in its setting, certainly not in its telling. A dull execution, and an utterly predictable finalé, make this episode barely watchable in and of itself, and, combined with its failure to reveal anything at all of the ongoing plot, made it a complete waste of time to watch.

A victim of its own success, and the conceit of its creators, Lost has become nothing more than a platform for pretension and self-indulgence. We have been subjected to episode after episode that does nothing, goes nowhere, and it's fast becoming a bore.
