Storyline

Sun wrestles with the thought of telling Jin a newfound secret that she might be pregnant which threatens to upset the entire balance of the survivors' community. Sun recalls her time in South Korea how she couldn't tell Jin that she may not be able to bear children, while carrying on a possible tryst with her English-language tutor. Meanwhile, Locke enlists Ana Lucia to interrogate the prisoner, Henry Gale, in order to extract more information than he, Jack or Sayid could. Whe Henry draws Ana Lucia a map to the location deep in the jungle about a hot-air balloon he arrived in, she, Sayid, and Charlie venture into the jungle to find the balloon. But is Henry Gale telling them the truth? Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Around 19 minutes in, just after Ana-Lucia comes out of the armory after her first talk with "Henry", the group (Ana-Lucia, Jack, and Locke) enters the computer room. Just as she gets to the camera side of the desk, marker tape is clearly visible on the floor to position the actors properly. Pink "T" shape on the right of the table, blue strip to the left (meant to line up with Jack's left foot) See more »

Quotes

Henry Gale: Of course, if I was one of them, these people that you just assume are your enemies, what would I do? There would be no balloon so I would draw them out to a really secluded place, like a cave or some underbrush, a good place for a trap... an ambush. And when your friends got there a bunch of my people would be waiting for them. Then they would use them to trade for me. I guess it's a good thing I'm not one of them, huh? You guys got any milk?

Nothing But the Truth
27 February 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

When 'Lost' was in its prime, it was must-watch television. Remember first watching it, found it remarkably easy to get into, was hooked from the start and was on Season 3 by the end of one week. The general consensus is that the final season is a disappointment and cannot disagree.

Season 2 of 'Lost' to me was very solid with many good to outstanding episodes (with a notable exception being "Fire + Water", which took strangeness too literally). "The Whole Truth" is like "Maternity Leave", very good and well done if not outstanding and lacking the extra something of the best 'Lost' episodes. As an overall whole it is one of the more interesting episodes centred around Sun and Jin, far from bad characters in their own right and generally their episodes, while not 'Lost' high points, are well worth watching.

"The Whole Truth" may not be the most plot advancing 'Lost' episode, though there are moments like the pretty chilling final scene that makes one uneasy as to what's to follow. Similarly not the most character progressing, though one sees different sides to Ana Lucia and Jin and Henry Gale (always so strong a character) is getting more interesting all the time.

On top of that, the script also is not always the tautest in the world, or on 'Lost', again there is a lot of tension and intrigue (the final scene is brilliantly written) but some of it is also soap-operatic.

Acting from all is very strong, wonderful in the case of Michael Emerson, for me he has always been one of the best and most consistent actors on 'Lost'.

Visually, 'Lost' continues to be stylish, atmospheric and beautiful in "The Whole Truth", as always making the most of the island setting. The music is as always chilling and understated, most of the writing is very well written and the direction handles everything with great skill.

Overall, very good while falling short of being outstanding. 8/10 Bethany Cox
