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.

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.

Nikki comes to the beach where Sawyer and Hurley are playing ping-pong, stumbles, whispers some unintelligible words and apparently dies. Hurley understand "Paulo lies" and the group searches Paulo in the woods. They find him like Nikki and they believe the couple has been poisoned. Meanwhile, the past of the actress Nikki and the Brazilian chef Paulo in Sidney is disclosed, when they poisoned Nikki's lover for stealing a fortune in diamonds.

"Exposé" is another great episode centered in the secondary characters Nikki and Paulo, disclosing their greedy criminal past. I liked very much the interaction of Nikki and Paulo with the very first episodes, entwining known situations and glimpses of these two characters with the main plot of "Lost" revisited. Further, the viewer has the opportunity to see Shannon, Boone, Ethan and the junior high school teacher Dr. Artz again. The destiny of Nikki and Paulo is the darkest of this series but these two despicable killers deserved their fate. Nikki with her eyes wide open in the grave is very impressive. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 10 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
