Trivia

Charlie's flashback of him saving a woman from a robbery occurs on the same day as Desmond's time flash in Lost: Flashes Before Your Eyes (2007), as indicated by the circumstances: Charlie playing and singing "Wonderwall" on the street, when it suddenly starts to rain. The main difference is that Desmond does not interfere in Charlie's recollection (since Desmond's flashback was probably an elaborate 'vision', and not an actual experience). See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the episode, you see a shot of Charlie's right hand without the weight belt wrapped around it, then a moment later it's back on. See more »

Quotes

Claire Littleton: Why didn't you tell me you were gonna do this?
Charlie Pace: I didn't want you to worry.
Claire Littleton: Well, it's dangerous, isn't it? Swimming in to some underwater station.
Charlie Pace: It's what needs to be done to get us all rescued. I'll be fine, Claire. But you gotta promise me something; while I'm gone, don't worry about me.

One of the show's greatest hits
21 December 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"Greatest Hits" is the greatest example of a 'set-up' episode I can think of. Rarely has any episode in any television series which was basically leading directly into and setting up the season/series finale been so absolutely riveting and involving. The on-island stuff, outside Charlie's 'greatest hits' list, is essentially a prelude to the action-packed "Through the Looking Glass", while the flashbacks, when coupled with Charlie's actions on the island, particularly late in the episode during and after his conversation with Desmond, are among the show's most unabashedly sentimental and yet beautiful scenes. Dominic Monaghan gives his best performance in the role, and the episode is the finest achievement for Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz as writers and for Stephen Williams as director. A thrilling and exciting episode, sure, but also one of the most emotional on the series, even for someone who is generally ambivalent about Charlie as a character.
