Jack is not feeling well, believing that it was fruit poisoning; however Juliet finds that he needs an emergency appendectomy, otherwise he would die. Meanwhile in a "flashforward", Jack is living with Kate and Aaron and he proposes to her. However, the deranged Hurley questions Jack as to whether they are not dead and in Heaven, and later Jack sees his father, Dr. Christian Shephard. While heading to Jack's camp, Sawyer, Claire with baby Aaron and Miles meet the helicopter pilot, Frank Lapidus, who advises them to hide from Keamy and his men whom are there to kill all of them. In the morning, Claire has vanished and Miles tells them that she had woken up in the middle of the night calling for her father. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

less action, but still good
2 May 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

A normal day on the island...

In contrast with most of the other episodes of this seasons, but still good. Most of the other episodes were characteristic of action and more information(answers that bring other questions)while this one is a calmer episode, but it still gives some remarkable questions about some events (as well on the island as in flash forwards). It's just the stress that lays on the events at the beach, which aren't very suspenseful. In fact, there're predictable, and that's why most of the fans will call it weak (and perhaps also boring).

It is not one of the best, but it is still worth of watching.
