Did You Know?


The man that Desmond replaces in the hatch is called Kelvin Inman; the man in the army that lets Sayid go and gives him some money is called Joe Inman - but they are both the same man. See more »


When Jack, Sayid and Sawyer board the "Elizabeth," Hume fires several rounds through the hatch. They find him cradling a semi-automatic shotgun, probably 12-gauge. But the holes in the hatch are too small for buckshot and too large for slugs. See more »

Action-packed finalé which will keep you guessing till the end
18 October 2006 | by The_SandheaverSee all my reviews

After spotting the boat at the end of the previous episode ("Three Minutes"), the survivors are shocked to find out who the occupant is. With the use of the boat, Jack and Sayid come up with a plan to confront "The Others". However, when Jack, Sawyer, Kate and Hurley follow Michael to "The Others", Jack is forced to reveal Michael's deadly secret whilst they are in the middle of nowhere.

Meanwhile, Locke decides that the time has come to find out the time has come to find out what will happen if "the button" is not pressed. However, Mr. Eko's resolve to continue pressing "the button" is surprisingly strong. So, when Locke concocts a plan to lock Eko out of the hatch with the help of an ally, Eko goes to surprisingly desperate lengths to stop Locke from making what he believes will be a big mistake.

This is a classic episode of Lost, full of secrets, suspense and very few answers to the many questions it poses to its viewers. However, some of the secrets this action-packed episode reveals will be truly shocking to the fans. There is also a trademark end-of-season cliffhanger, which achieves the feat of being both shocking and extremely confusing. One thing is guaranteed, it will keep you guessing right to the very end, and you will still be frustrated with more mind-boggling questions as you wait in agony for the Third Season to begin.
