Storyline

Jake and Kate find an exhausted Michael in the jungle and bring him back to the hatch for dehydration and medical treatment. Henry tries to kill Ana Lucia, but she is saved by John Locke in the last moment. Ana Lucia tries to convince Sawyer to give a weapon to her for killing Henry, and she has sex with him. She recalls her troubled relationship with her mother leading to the end of her career in the L.A. police force and her short connection with Jack's father Dr. Christian Shephard, who took her to Australia for his own agenda. Meanwhile, Hurley invites Libby for a picnic in a secret spot. When Ana Lucia is unable to shoot Henry, Michael offers himself for the assignment... but instead executes her in a stunning betrayal.

Trivia

When Ana-Lucia meets with her mother on the roof of the LAPD motor-pool near the beginning of the episode, the numbers on the roofs of the patrol cars are 04, 08, 15, 16, 23, and 42. (The number on the roof of Ana-Lucia's car is difficult to read, but looks like F8). See more »

Goofs

It is implausible that Ana Lucia could have spontaneously joined Christian on his trip to Sydney as is implied. With the exception of New Zealanders, she would have had to apply for a visa, and that would take a minimum of several days before it would be approved. See more »

Kate Austen: Jack? Where are you going?
Jack Shephard: Maybe they just let him go.
Kate Austen: Let him go - he's alone! They didn't just push him out into the jungle, Jack. He's alone!
Jack Shephard: Okay. Let's go.

Two for the Road
9 March 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). "Two for the Road" is one of the season's best, and the best episode since "Lockdown". Other previous Season 2 favourites are "Man of Science, Man of Faith", "Orientation", "The Other 48 Days", "The 23rd Psalm", "One of Them" and of course "Lockdown".

It's not just because of the ending, with one of 'Lost's' leaving-one-floored twists and basically it's an ending that is both shocking and tragic. Everything with Henry Gale continues to transfix and burn with intensity, Michael's arc (until his unthinkable act here) is one that one roots for him in a nightmarish situation for a father and there's even a little humour with Sawyer and Jack.

Really enjoyed Ana Lucia and Christian Shepherd's scenes too, very cleverly written and with a great performance from John Terry and Michelle Rodriguez showing that she can be good with good material to work from (not the case too often). The chemistry between Libby and Hurley is sweet and affecting.

All the acting is pitched beautifully, particularly Michael Emerson, Harold Perrineau, Cynthia Watros, John Terry and Michelle Rodriguez.

Visually, 'Lost' continues to be stylish, atmospheric and beautiful in "Two for the Road", as always making the most of the island setting. The music is as always chilling and understated, the writing is taut and smart and the episode is one of the best directed ones of Season 2.

Overall, fabulous and a Season 2 high. 10/10 Bethany Cox
