Trivia

Jack's tattoo is actually a real tattoo on actor Matthew Fox and means "Eagles cleave the air" in Chinese. See more »

Goofs

Jack's tattoos don't actually mean "He walks among us, but he is not one of us." In fact this is nowhere near correct. A word by word explanation of the four Chinese characters on the tattoo: The first character means "eagle". The second character means "strike", as a verb. The third one means "long". The final one means "sky","space","void","empty". These characters are pronounced "ying ji chang kong" (in PinYin) These four characters are taken from a famous poem written by Chairman Mao Tse-tung (Mao Zhedong) and can be roughly translated as "Eagles cleave the air". But the poem itself has a deeper meaning. In the end of the first stanza, the poet asks, "who masters fate's rise and descent?" See more »

He Walks Among Us But He Is not One of Us
1 March 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Sawyer, Kate and Carl reaches their island at night, and the reluctant Kate wishes to return for Jack. Meanwhile, Jack is interrogated by Isabel about the incident with Juliet and when she mentions the meaning of his tattoo, he recalls his vacation in the paradisiacal island of Phuket, in Thailand, where he dated the sexy, mystic and mysterious local Achara (Bai Ling). Ben has an infection in his spinal column, and Jack negotiates the freedom of Juliet, who was going to be sentenced to death for Pickett's murder in the policy of "an eye for an eye" of "The Others". Later Jack recalls what happened to him when he forced Achara to disclose her innermost secret.

"Stranger in a Strange Land" is a reasonable episode based on the past of Jack in Thailand and his passion for Achara. His recollection is triggered by the question of the "sheriff" Isabel, and later with the situation of Juliet. The secret of Achara and the reaction of her brother and friends are quite incomprehensible and exaggerated. In the end, Jack has the same feeling while walking with "The Others" that he had in Phuket, of a complete stranger in a strange land. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 7 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
