Desmond learns that he was abducted by Charles Widmore and brought back to the island. Widmore's team prepares to perform an electromagnetic test with Desmond and accidentally kills one of the men during the preparation of the experiment. Desmond is sent to the parallel reality in Los Angeles, where he meets his friend Charles Widmore. Desmond is assigned to release the addicted Drive Shaft bass player Charlie Pace from the jail to play in the charity event promoted by Widmore's wife Eloise for her son Daniel. Desmond invites Charlie to go to a five star hotel to play but Charlie pulls the steering wheel of Desmond's car and throws it into the sea. Charlie refuses to play and tells him to look for Penny. Desmond visits Mrs. Widmore to tell that Charlie will not play and he meets her son Daniel, who is a musician, and tells that he feels misfit in the world. Daniel tells Desmond where he can find his half-sister Penny. When Desmond meets her, he awakes in Widmore's camp. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Questions' Answers
7 April 2010 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

This the most breathtaking episode of the season and one of the most interesting ones of the series! Des is my favorite character after Sawyer! I think, the series - where Des in a leading role - are the most exciting! And I was very glad to see a couple Demond-Penny again - thank the writers heartily for this!

Also the episode gives so many answers and new information that I've got a good brainwash! It becomes nearly clear what the hell alternate reality is, what the hell Wildmoreforget on the Island and whether Des and Penny be together... But of course, there are many new questions...

I like this episode, the greatest one after the 'Constant' and "Looking Glass"!
