Locke comes to the survivor's camp and lures Sawyer, telling him that he had kidnapped Ben and wants Sawyer to kill him. He brings Sawyer to an old vessel and locks him in the brig with his father. After an ironic conversation, Sawyer realizes that Anthony Cooper is the man that deceived his mother and responsible for the destruction of his family. Meanwhile, Desmond, Hurley, Charlie and Jin bring and hide Naomi in Hurley's tent, and Hurley tells the secret to Sayid. He tries to fix her radio to contact her vessel, but Kate sees the device and reveals the secret to Jake and Juliet. Locke releases Sawyer and gives a tape-recorder to him proving that Juliet is a traitor and The Others will make a raid on their camp to get the pregnant Sun.

"The Brig" is another great episode of this excellent Third Season, with new intriguing mysteries and resolution of some open plots, such as how Anthony Cooper came to the island or who destroyed Sawyer's family. Unfortunately the writer has not given sequence to the great climax of the revelation of Naomi in the end of the previous episode (D.O.C.), and the information that the plane was found in the sea with the crew and passenger dead was not explored as it should. The performance of Kevin Tighe is fantastic in the role of a despicable mean man, and his character really deserved his fate after so many malevolencies. Kate is very naive disclosing the secret of the group to Jack, and incoherent since the reason is jealousy but she is "sleeping" with Sawyer and Jack is no longer interested on her. The manipulation of Locke is very evil, and the objective of his inner journey with The Others is mysterious and full of betrayals. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 11 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
