Storyline

Ben takes Jack, Sun, and Desmond to meet with Faraday's mother, scientist Eloise Hawking, (whom Desmond remembers years earlier leading him on the path to the island). Eloise tells them when and where the island will appear in time and the "window" to reach it, as well as the circumstances that brought them there in the first place. Jack decides to return with the corpse of Locke despite his doubts as to what may lie head for them, while Kate, Sayid, and Hurley need more convincing. Jack also visits his grandfather, residing in a nursing home, which leads him to do a little soul searching to seek his path. Written by matt-282

Trivia

While he is waiting to board the plane, Hurley can be seen reading the graphic novel "Y: The Last Man." Its author, Brian K. Vaughan, has been a co-producer on a large number of Lost episodes (although not this one). See more »

Goofs

Heloise makes a big show of turning a wheel in the center of the door to the pendulum room. But on the other side of the door the fastening mechanism is a simple dog with no need for a wheel. See more »

Quotes

Ben Linus: Thomas the Apostle. When Jesus wanted to return to Judea, knowing that he would probably be murdered there, Thomas said to the others, "Let us also go there and we might die with him." But Thomas was not remembered for this bravery. His claim to fame came later when he refuses to acknowledge the resurrection. He just couldn't wrap his mind around it. The story goes that he needed to touch Jesus wounds to be convinced.
Jack Shephard: So was he?
Ben Linus: Of course he was. We are all convinced sooner or later, Jack.

Unconvincing and Implausible Situation
19 April 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jack awakes in the island and rescues Hurley and Kate from a lake. Two days ago, Ben, Jack, Sun and Desmond meet Ms. Hawking, who is Daniel's mother, and she shows a device to them to locate the island that moves through time. She also tells that, if they want to return to the island, there would be a window that could bring them back. But they need to be together to reproduce the original situation. Jack decides to come back to the island bringing Locke's coffin. In the plane, the pilot is Frank Lapidus and Kate, Sun, Hurley, Sayid and Ben also embark in flight 316. When Jack asks Ben what will happen to the passengers, he replies who cares.

"Lost – 316" is an unconvincing episode that shows an implausible situation, with the Oceanic Six returning to the island after so many deception in that place. Aaron is conveniently left behind. The worse, the Machiavellian Ben continues to manipulate the group like puppets as if they where dummies and not intelligent and experienced people. The shallow explanation of Ms. Hawking is unconvincing to make them back to such traumatic place. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "316"
