When Jack discovers the bomb in the backpack, it says 3:54. The beep sounds as the clock counts down, one beep per second. Counting the beeps would set the timer to 3:40, but after the break commercial, the timer is in 3:45. See more »

Jack finds explosive in his backpack but Jack tells that nothing will happen to them. Sayid runs with the bomb to save the group; however Sun is trapped in the debris and Jin stays with her and only Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Hurley survive.

In the parallel reality, Jack saves Locke and offers a chance to heal him. Jack visits Bernard to learn Locke's historic and he gives the name of Anthony Cooper. Jack visits him in a nursing home and then he invites Claire to stay home with him.

I have nothing else to say about this show that was destroyed by incompetent writers. My vote is five.
