When he is confronted by a vengeful Sun, Ben promises to offer her proof that Jin is alive and on the island in exchange for her not to kill him, while Kate is angry at Jack for trying to persuade her to return to the island.

Did You Know?


During Charlotte's ramblings after she collapses in the jungle, she mentions the band Geronimo Jackson - the same band whose album Hurley found when they first got into the Hatch in Season 2, and whose t-shirt Eddie was wearing during one of Locke's flashbacks in Season 3 (ep 13). We also saw a Geronimo Jackson poster in a flashback to John Locke being trapped in his locker at school. See more »

Side Effects of Jumping in Time
18 April 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sun is ready to kill Ben, but he tells to Sun that he can show evidences that Jin is alive. Kate, Aaron, Sayid and Hurley leave Sun, Ben and Jack in the harbor and Ben drives Sun and Jack to show the promised evidences. In the island, Jin finds that the year is 1988 and he heads the group of French to an antenna; however they are attacked by the smoke monster. On the next jump in time, Jin meets Sawyer, Locke, Juliet, Daniel, Charlotte and Miles and they walk together to the Orchid and Locke believes that he must bring the Oceanic Six back to the island to fix the time line. Charlotte gets worse and is left behind with Daniel and she tells the advice that she received many years ago. Meanwhile Locke is contacted by Jack's father in the Orchid.

"This Place is Death" is an episode when Jin slides through time many times and sees what had happened with Danielle and her friends. The explanation that the smoke monster is a device created to protect the island is very poor. Unfortunately Sun did not shoot Ben. What is the connection of Christian Shephard with the island? My vote is seven.
