Trivia

Ben refers to the man Sayid kills in Moscow as Andropov. This last name is well known to Russian viewers. Yuri Andropov was the Chief of the KGB for 15 years (1967 - 1982) and made KGB the notorious omni-powerful and omnipresent organization. After the death of Leonid Brezhnev, Andropov was the Soviet leader for 15 months and died from diabetes in 1983. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Sayid kills a Russian guy, the whole apartment is not Russian. Furniture, apartment layout, doors, door chains - everything is "what Americans thinks Russia looks like". It couldn't be further from reality. See more »

Excellent - but shows poor gun handling
26 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, I have to get something said. Lost made a gun handling error. They showed a guard holding a SKS-56 Chinese carbine with a spike bayonet. This was supposed to in 1977. They would be almost impossible to obtain in the USA back then. Except for an odd Viet Nam war trophy I think they would have been illegal to import. Ammunition would also have been difficult to obtain. A USA based group like the Dharma Initiative would have used something far more conventional.

OK, it's not a big deal for most people but for me it was rather surprising. Lost doesn't make mistakes very often. The story line is so wonderfully tight and consistent. It's become my favorite show. I could easily find massive errors with oh Battlestar Galactica, but Lost didn't disappoint.

I won't spoil the episode, except to say that it very, very logically fits. It fits so well and is so natural I am very curious how they will get out of it.
