Storyline

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

Trivia

As Jack is driving to the funeral, listening to "Scentless Apprentice" by Nirvana on his stereo, he is reading the obituary of the person whose funeral he is driving to. The obituary is from a paper based on the April 5th LA Times, the same date that Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. It is possibly the first use of a Nirvana song on television since Courtney Love sold 25% of the rights to the Nirvana catalog. See more »

Goofs

When Charlie is drowning inside the communication room, he makes the Sign of the Cross just as he is about to die. However, instead of blessing himself with his right hand, he incorrectly uses the left. See more »

Quotes

Ben Linus: Mikhail, you need to go down to The Looking Glass and find out what Charlie Pace is doing down there.
Mikhail Bakunin: You told us The Looking Glass was inoperable, flooded.
Ben Linus: I lied. Mikhail, I need you to go, now!
Mikhail Bakunin: I can be there by dawn. But if Juliet told them about The Looking Glass, what else did she tell them?

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 and arrested. He calls Tom in a walkie-talkie and proposes to exchange the lives of the trio per Naomi's radio. He tells that the entire castaway would be killed by Naomi's friends, who would not be 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, 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 access code, 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. On the camp, Hurley uses the Kombi, hits one enemy and together with Sawyer and Juliet, they save Sayid, Jin and Bernard. Jack is completely wasted, drunken and drugged, stealing drugs in the hospital, going to a funeral service, meeting Kate nearby the airport and telling her that they must return to the island.

I have had the most different sensations and feelings along this fantastic and intriguing episode. I loved when Hurley hits one of The Others with the wagon, Sayid breaks the neck of another one and Sawyer shots Tom. I was angry when Jack has the chance to kill Ben and does not follow Kate's advice and spares him. I felt sorrow when Charlie dies and angry with Locke when he kills Naomi. And I am absolutely lost with the intriguing "flash-forward" of the encounter of Jack and Kate in the end of the episode (and the season). Honestly, I tried to find some explanations in Lewis Carroll literature, but I have not come up to any conclusion except that all the dwellers of the island might be pawns of The Powers That Be. It seems that "The Others", with the exception of Mikhail, are history; therefore, people from the vessel offshore might be the enemies of the survivors in the next season. I am probably having a daydream with these speculations, but I have no clue for what might have happened to Jack and Kate. Last but not the least, who might be the name in the obituary and visited by Jack in the funeral service that is neither his family nor his friend of Jack? And how Locke escaped from the hole? Unfortunately we will see the answers only in the next season. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 12 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
