Storyline

In the freighter, Sayid presses Michael to tell him what happened to him since he left the island. In a long flashback, Michael is in despair in Manhattan, since Walt refuses to talk to him after discovering the truth about the deaths of Ana Lucia and Libby. When Michael decides to commit suicide in an alley, he is saved by Tom Friendly who convinces him to work for his people by infiltrating the Kahana freighter to save the lives of the survivors in the island. Michael commits sabotage in the radio room and in the engine of the vessel following direct orders of Ben. After the explanations, Sayid delivers the traitor to Captain Gault. Meanwhile on the island, Ben is released by Locke and convinces Alex, Karl, and Rousseau to leave the camp and move to a hidden sanctuary. But they are ambushed by unseen killers. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

During the scenes at the Suva port, a large airliner is shown nearby taking off or landing. In fact there is no major airport near Suva capable of handling that size of aircraft. In Honolulu, the international airport is close to the harbor and was probably the source of that airliner. See more »

Quotes

Michael Dawson: What do you want?
Tom: Your help.
Michael Dawson: Why would I help the son of a bitch who kidnapped my son?
Tom: We gave him back to you in one piece, Mike, you're the one who lost him. You told him, didn't you? You couldn't carry the guilt of what you did to those two women all by yourself, so you shared it with a 10-year-old kid. Is that why you wanna kill yourself, Michael? Because that's the way he looks at you now? Because he knows you're a murderer?
Michael Dawson: Go away!
[turns to walk away]
Tom: I got some bad news for you, amigo. ...

Is Michael One of the Good Guys?
25 March 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sayid presses Michael to tell what has happened with him since he left the island. In a long flashback, Michael is in despair in Manhattan, since Walt refuses to talk to him after discovering the truth about the deaths of Ana Maria and Libby. When Michael decides to commit suicide in an alley, he is saved by Tom Friendly that convinces him to work infiltrated in the Kahana to save the lives of the survivors in the island. Michael commits sabotage in the radio room and in the engine of the vessel following direct orders of Ben. After the explanations, Sayid delivers the traitor to Captain Gault. Meanwhile in the island, Ben is released by Locke and convinces Alex, Karl and Rousseau to leave the camp and move to a hidden sanctuary.

In this episode, the saga of the despicable Michael is disclosed. The loser character betrayed his friends and killed Libby and Ana Maria in the island; lost the love and respect of his son; is unable to commit suicide; works for Ben; and betrays the Owner, the Captain and the crew of the supply vessel Kahana. It is impressive how destructive this character is, even full of good intentions. Locke is completely insane releasing Ben, but the greatest surprise is the calm behavior of Sawyer, passively accepting the command of Locke and the manipulation of Ben. The tragic fate of Karl, Rousseau and Alex is the great surprise of this episode. However, it seems totally out of the context and unnecessary to expose Tom as a gay. Is it a side effect of the great loss of audience? My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 14 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
