Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Sayid Jarrah: Listen carefully, There's a well on the main island, half a mile south of the camp we just left. Desmond's inside it. Locke wants him dead which means you're going to need him for something. You understand me?
Jack Shephard: Why are you telling me this?
Sayid Jarrah: Because it's going to be you, Jack.

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.
