Chin Ho, played by Daniel Dae Kim, says to Kono, "whatever happened, happened." This was a major theme in the time-travel theory of Lost, which Kim also starred in. In fact, it was the title of a Lost episode. See more »


When on the mountain and Steve wants to climb back up to where Danny is, he tells Danny to take up the slack on the rope. Danny simply pulls the rope up, hand over hand. This is completely wrong, as there is no anchoring if anything happens, and the rope will slide back down - which is exactly what happens. At the least, Danny should have had the rope around him.

Series 1, Episode 20
15 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The writers of this episode obviously did not think this one through. Our heroes found a dead body, that of a fisherman that had been shot. The bullet had apparently passed right through his body and was no where to be found as he had been killed elsewhere. But.........fish scales were discovered around the bullet's exit hole and they came from a rare species of fish that was being served at a local restaurant. Danny and Steve visited the restaurant and found a container with fish from the recent catch and while sifting through the fish, Danny found one that contained the bullet that had killed the fisherman. Now this is where the problem with the story comes to play. How did the fish scales appear around the exit wound on the dead fisherman's body, if the fish was the LAST thing to be struck by the bullet?
