Boone Carlyle is jealous of Sayid Jarrah, because he becomes close to his half-sister Shannon Rutherford. Boone tells John Locke that he wants to reveal the secret about the hatch in the woods to Shannon. Locke hits Boone, heals his head with a medicine and fastens him with a rope in a tree, living him alone in the forest. Boone's background story reveals his complicated relationship with the irresponsible Shannon, and about why he ventured to Australia to rescue her from a bad relationship, while in the present he tries to save her from the unseen forest creature. Meanwhile, Kate questions Sun's behavior and learns that she can speak English, while Hurley faces the language barrier to repay Jin for teaching him how to fish.

An Aggregate Score of 8.2?!?!?!
28 January 2020 | by adt2695See all my reviews

It is baffling that this episode's reception only eclipses just above an '8'. What's explored and presented are some of the best - if not the best - subplots and character scenarios in this entire season. Truly, it's baffling. Was there backlash towards this episode during its initial release that I've always been unaware of? This is my second stint. I don't remember that taking place when I was watching its original airing; an 8.2 score is a travesty for this episode. I might even change my score to a 10 just because of the gross undervaluing.
