Trivia

This is the first episode where we see a bird's eye view of the island. See more »

Goofs

When Elsa talks in German to her employer in the flash forward scene, the subtitles say 'He had no idea' but what she actually says at that moment translates into 'He won't give up the name now'. Earlier in that scene, the subtitles say 'He won't give up the name now' but the actual words translate into 'He won't say anything'. See more »

Quotes

Sayid Jarrah: Hurley, where did they go?
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: Look, I guess they were too busy tying me up to tell me.

Torturer, Diplomat, Hit-man

Jack deals with Frank and proposes to bring Charlotte back; in return, Frank would take Sayid to the ship. Frank accepts and Sayid seeks Locke with Kate and Miles, and when they meet each other, Sayid trades Miles per Charlotte. Meanwhile, in a flash-forward, Sayid becomes a hit-man and travels to Berlin, where he meets Elsa and has a brief affair with her.

"The Economist" is another episode where there is no new revelation or answer to the countless unresolved mysteries of the island. The most intriguing is the situation of Sayid in the future as a hit-man and the identity of his boss. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 13 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
