Jin and Sawyer meets Jack, Kate and Hurley in the island in 1977, and Sawyer immediately plots a scheme to save them telling that they are newcomers for the Dharma Initiative. Sayid is found wandering handcuffed in the woods and mistakenly taken as a "Hostile"; however Sawyer plots a plan to save him. Meanwhile, Frank Lapidus has landed in the minor island with Ben, Sun and the survivors of Ajira Flight 316. Ben sneaks through the jungle, but he is followed by Sun and Frank. When Ben tells to Sun that Jin is in the main island, she hits his head with a paddle of a boat and rows with Frank to the main island. They arrive in a depleted Dharma village in 2007 and they encounter Christian Shepherd that shows a 1977 picture of their friends.

Now that I have "digested" the inconsistencies in "Lost", I found "Namaste" an engaging episode. The mystery about Christian Shepherd, the disappearance of Claire and other questions have not been responded yet, but the show is not bad. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Namaste"
