Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Claire Littleton (credit only)


Jack and Kate head off into the jungle to search for the helicopter landing site, just as Sawyer, Miles, and baby Aaron run into them to update them on the facts, including Claire's mysterious disappearance. Meanwhile, Sayid also returns to the island on the motor raft hoping to take a few people to the freighter offshore while Desmond, still aboard, learns what Michael intends to do. In a flash-forward, Jack, Kate, Sayid, Sun, Hurley, and Claire's baby son Aaron arrive safely back in Hawaii from their ordeal where they set about trying to keep the true facts of what happened on the island to protect the ones left behind... and themselves.

Back in Course
22 May 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the survivors' camp, Jack and Kate decide to seek the location in the woods where the helicopter landed expecting to find Sayid and Desmond. They meet Miles and Sawyer with Aaron, and Sawyer tells what has happened with Claire and their group. Kate returns with Aaron to the camp where she meets Sayid, who tells the true objectives of Keamy and his men. Daniel offers to take groups of six to the supply vessel, while Sayid and Kate track Jake and Sawyer. Meanwhile, Ben, Locke and Hurley reach the Orchid but Keamy has taken the site. In a flash-forward, the survivors of the Oceanic 815 are called Oceanic 6 by the press and meet their relatives. Jack is informed that Claire is his sister.

In "There's No Place Like Home: Part 1", "Lost' seems to be back in course with an engaging episode based on the lives of the original characters that the fans worship. The identities of the six survivors are finally revealed, their lives go on, but there is still a great mystery about what has happened with the other survivors. Meanwhile, the situation in the island is tense, with the sub-groups in dangerous situations. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 15 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
