Thanks to Locke correctly moving the island, the time jumps finally stop to the survivors left on the island, in which Sawyer, Juliet, Miles, Jin, and Faraday find themselves now stranded on the island in the 1970s when they are forced to kill a small group of Others who try to abduct a young woman and are now forced to establish themselves as allies of the Dharma Initiative by trying to defuse a conflict between the Otheres (called 'Hostles' by the Dharma members) and the research group. Three years later in 1977, Sawyer (under his new alias Jim LaFleur) is now the foreman of the Dharma Initiative living with Juliet whom try to adjust to life and deal with their fellow members whom include the drunkard Horace Goodspeed and his pregnant wife Amy.

Good Episode
5 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode is a lot slower than the rest of them , but it focus's 3 years ahead of time when John decided to go and bring the others back to the island. All the acting in this episode is amazing , and at times truly emotional , its not the best episode of the season but its a pretty dam good one. Im sure there will be yet more amazing episodes to come soon enough and we may just discover the hidden mystery's of that amazing island. Im a huge lost fan myself , and i for one believe we will find out soon enough. :)

If your a die hard fan like me , this episode will fill your eyes with tears and make you full in love with the characters all over again.
