Storyline

Jack and Kate head off into the jungle to search for the helicopter landing site, just as Sawyer, Miles, and baby Aaron run into them to update them on the facts, including Claire's mysterious disappearance. Meanwhile, Sayid also returns to the island on the motor raft hoping to take a few people to the freighter offshore while Desmond, still aboard, learns what Michael intends to do. In a flash-forward, Jack, Kate, Sayid, Sun, Hurley, and Claire's baby son Aaron arrive safely back in Hawaii from their ordeal where they set about trying to keep the true facts of what happened on the island to protect the ones left behind... and themselves.

Trivia

The Oceanic Six were rescued 108 days after they crashed. 108 is the sum of Hurley's mystery numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 and the total of minutes required to push the button in the first hatch. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Sayid meets with Nadia, the frame gets flipped. An external shot shows Nadia and a police car is on the right side of the hangar door. In the shot that follows, Sayid exits the hangar and the car is on the opposite side. Also, the purse that Nadia is carrying changes sides and the police officer in the background is wearing his badge on the wrong side. See more »

Quotes

Karen Decker: They're referring to you as the Oceanic Six. It's not the best branding as far as we're concerned, but it's catchy.

In a not-so homely place
10 June 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 3 was for me a solid if uneven season, with many brilliant episodes but a few slightly underwhelming ones and containing one of 'Lost's' low points "Stranger in a Strange Land". Season 4 had a good amount to live up, and its first episode "The Beginning of the End", carrying on from where the shocking events of the previous season's finale "Through the Looking Glass", couldn't be a better way to start. The episodes between that and this all ranged from decent to brilliant, disappointing only with "Eggtown" and "The Other Woman".

Found the "There is No Place Like Home" three parter to be among the best episodes of the season, along with "The Constant".

"There's No Place Like Home: Part 1" has pretty much everything that 'Lost' is all about. It's taut and thought-provoking, with utterly gripping on-island events from the very start right up to the finish. The mystery increases and gets meatier and there are questions and mysteries concerning events and characters answered.

On top of all that, it advances characters, shows plot progression rather than repeating itself or being filler. A lot happens, a lot of characters are involved and it's all thoroughly engaging with plenty going on and plentiful material. There is a lot of tension and a real sense of danger.

Also found "There's No Place Like Home: Part 1" to be a non-stop thrill ride of insane entertainment and playful value, edge of your seat tension and suspense, constant intrigue and very emotional moments. The flashforward is one of the season's most intriguing.

Can't fault the performances, with everybody sinking their teeth with aplomb with plenty to do for all.

Nor the stylishness and atmosphere of the visuals, nor the effectively understated and chilling use of music, taut writing and the tightly controlled direction (one of the best of the season and perhaps of the show).

All in all, brilliant. 10/10 Bethany Cox
