Did You Know?


The woman Sawyer brings to his hotel in the flashback is played by actress Brittany Perrineau, wife of Harold Perrineau, who plays series regular Michael. Brittany also has small roles in the episodes "Numbers" and "Everybody Hates Hugo". See more »


After Sawyer buys the revolver, he park at the "Sweet Shrimp" truck. As he exits his car, he opens the revolver and spins the cylinder. As he does so, the cylinder makes a mechanical-clicking noise. This sound is not made by this type of revolver and certainly, not when the cylinder is out of the gun (disengaged from the ratchet system). See more »


Sawyer: [talking with Jack's father in a bar in Australia] What'd you handle back in the States?
Dr. Christian Shephard: I was a Chief of Surgery.
Sawyer: Was?
Dr. Christian Shephard: Yeah, was.
Sawyer: But we're in hell, huh?
Dr. Christian Shephard: Don't let the air conditioning fool you, son. You are here, too. You are suffering. But, don't beat yourself up about it. It's fate. Some people are just supposed to suffer. That's why the Red Sox will never win the damn series. I have a son who's about your age. He's not like me. He does what's in his heart. He's a good man maybe a great one....

A Good Example of a "Diamond in the Rough"
17 July 2006 | by pointgiven51See all my reviews

This episode is my favorite, having become so rather surprisingly.

Its simple set up - that of Sawyer setting out to slay a boar with a vendetta - seems grounded in ridiculousness. After all, how can a pig hold a grudge? This little task turns into a deeper journey, a pleasing respite from the Lost story arc. It certainly outperforms your expectations.

Sawyer's journey with Kate turns out comedy - as the script allows the two characters to alternatively bounce off and spark at each other - and development, as Sawyer's tragic past is further explored and his persona softened. It is hard not to build a lot of sympathy for what happens to him.

I highly recommend this episode for viewers and hope that they will anticipate it. However don't skip to it, or else you'll miss a little back story shading that is essential to the Sawyer character.
