Did You Know?


When Locke goes to visit him, Ben is reading Philip K. Dick's "VALIS", a science fiction novel where the writer, as "deus ex machina" able to change the plot at his will, becomes slowly the protagonist of the story, living it and no longer able to take control of it. See more »


While Kate is drinking from a "Dharma" coffee mug, as she talks with Sawyer, the logo on the bottom of the mug becomes visible and states "Mainstays" and (which is a modern-day Wal-Mart brand name) and would not have existed when the Dharma Initiative was created. See more »


Juliet Burke: You knew this would happen. You sent him out here because you knew this would happen. You wanted this! You wanted him to die! Why?
Ben Linus: "Why"? You're asking me why? After everything I did to get you here, after everything I've done to keep you here, how can you possibly not understand... that you're mine?

"See you guys at dinner!"
6 March 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"The Other Woman" is at a disadvantage due to the dull, obligatory, soap-opera nature of the story being told. You can see the Jack/Juliet kiss coming from a mile off, the characterization of Ben sounds fine on paper (that he still has a childish attitude, but is responsible of something so important), but comes off as trite and silly in execution, and as affecting as Juliet's emotional journey in the episode is, mostly thanks to Elizabeth Mitchell's performance, it's only barely enough to make this a somewhat watchable, mediocre hour of "Lost".

The stuff with Harper is trite, the stuff with Ben is only occasionally effective, such as in the scene where he takes Juliet to Goodwin's body, but the episode has other strengths. Most of the scenes with Faraday and Charlotte are entertaining, although the showdown at the Tempest is disappointing, and it's pretty awesome when Charlotte knocks that meddling brat Kate out. "Eggtown" has more pull and power in the story, but it's also got an awful, obnoxious script. "The Other Woman" has strong enough dialogue and some decent characterization here and there, which saves it from being the nadir of season 4, though it is still mediocre. Ben's line at the end is great, as is Juliet saying "it's very stressful being an Other, Jack".
