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 »

Quite awful instruction...
30 March 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

To be brief: Awful directing - Not really good lines - but actually a very good plot.

I found the plot so good that it actually saved the whole episode. But the episode could have been a 9 or a 10. - But because of the awful directing it's only a 6.

Without spoiling anything - the thing that makes this episode so good is revealed in the end. And it is good. Very good.

The characters are as in a few other episodes - but not as we have seen them the lst few episodes.

For Lost at all - it is brilliant. But you have to see episode 1 and 2 to understand anything at all of episode 3.
