Episode cast overview, first billed only:


While leading the survivors to the radio transmission tower, Jack meets Ben and Alex on their way. Ben invites Jack to talk with him alone in a clearing and tells that Sayid, Jin and Bernard killed seven "The Others", but have been captured. He calls his chief henchman, Tom, in a walkie-talkie and proposes to exchange the lives of the trio per Naomi's radio. He tells that all the castaway would be killed by Naomi's friends, who are not who Jack thinks they are, but Jack does not accept the deal and hears three shots. Jack hits and captures Ben and promises to kill Tom. Meanwhile, the Russian Mikhail breaks into the Looking Glass, shoots Greta and Bonnie following Ben's order, but Desmond shoots Mikhail with a spear gun and saves Charlie. He convinces Bonnie to tell the password, and she tells that it is the tune of Beach Boy's "Good Vibrations". Charlie stops the jamming of the transmission and talks to Penny, who asks their location and tells that she is not offshore in the vessel. ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quite Possibly Brilliant, 28 May 2007 under Account: 'Number_VI'

***I wrote this on another account, so please excuse intentional duplicates.***


Jack leads the survivors to the Radio Tower, to make contact with Naomi's Carrier, whilst Sayid, Jin & Bernard plan to trap the Others.

My Review:

Well, here we are again. The third season finale draws to a close and we are given the spotlight focus of the camps leading man Jack Shephard. The camp prepares for an all out fight against Ben's Others and their plan to kidnap the women of the camp.

We learn more about Jack's 'past' and his drinking problems, his involvement and inability to live his life after his divorce and death of his father. Yet, nothing it what it seems and we are given a compelling and if not compulsive ending. Don't construed it to be any typical flashback, if that's the word to use.

Possibility the most usual episode of lost due to its misdirection and surprise revelations. The needs of the many seem to outweigh the needs so few, we are in the midst of an ongoing conflict that comes to a bloody end and the loss of old friends.


The season has been bumpy, shaken in its ability to provoke and shock us. However, this episode has brought it back with a accolade that puts it back the game of comparison of the shows' previous two seasons.

Watch out for the mesmeric ending. 10/10.
