Storyline

Four members of a supposed "rescue team" arrive on the island and are forced to bail out. They include scientist Daniel Faraday whom is found by Jack and Kate's group as well Miles Straume, a "spirit talker" and they try to find their grounded helicopter and their pilot, Frank Lapidus. Research specialist Charlotte Lewis is found by Locke, Claire, and their group where Ben knows Charlotte and that they are not here on the island to rescue them. At the beach camp, Sayid is also wary about the rescue people whom he suspects are there to mean them harm. Also, backgrounds are shown of the four "rescue party" members, Faraday, Charlotte, Miles, Frank, and Naomi and how they were recruited by a shady "third party" to find the mysterious island.

Trivia

The serial numbers on the tail of the helicopter that Frank Lapidus lands on the island are "N842M." 8 and 42 are both in the sequence of Hurley's "numbers." See more »

Goofs

Charlotte, hanging in a tree, releases her parachute and plunges into a pond so muddy as to be opaque. The next shot shows her underwater in a crystal clear pond, perhaps even a film production tank. In the following shot she surfaces again in the muddy pond. See more »

Quotes

Charlotte Staples Lewis: I can't believe you're alive. How many of you are there?
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: Why do you wanna know?
Charlotte Staples Lewis: Why wouldn't I want to know?
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: 48 of us survived the crash. That's not counting the tail section... they're pretty much all dead now...

Gripping!
8 February 2008 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

The second episode of the new "Lost" gives you just what its fans were lacking - a fair amount of riveting action. From the very first scene, you keep seeing brand new features you weren't expecting to encounter. It's the best proof that the series, ingoing its 4th season, is still alive and kicking hard.

Although the producers don't amaze us with some more flash-forwards this time, the return to flashbacks is more than satisfying, as it brings some shocking facts. The flashbacks introduce a few fresh characters, and the familiar ones turn out to be connected in a surprising way.

The fresh characters dominate the whole episode and I can't say it does any harm. Their scenario parts and their actors both do extremely well, providing us with a bracing feel - right after the episode, you'll realize that the show really needed people just like that. And here they are.

"Confirmed Dead" is full of gripping action and greatly written dialogues. I'm sure I'll quote the best scenes of the episode for the long time - they're just that good that they remain on the spectator's mind. The episode is entertaining, smart, and perky. You like "Lost", you have to watch it. My vote is ten.
