Storyline

Charlotte and Faraday head for a Dharma Station, called The Tempest. Thinking they're going there to kill everyone on the island, Juliet, on a tip from Others therapist Harper, leads Jack to the station to stop them. Meanwhile, Ben tells Locke he will give him some answers as long as Locke frees him afterward. More of Juliet's past on the island is revealed, including her secret romance with Goodwin, and the reason why Ben won't let her leave the island. Written by Chris Green

Trivia

When Locke goes to visit him, Ben is reading Philip K. Dick's "VALIS", a science fiction novel where the writer, as "deus ex machina" able to change the plot at his will, becomes slowly the protagonist of the story, living it and no longer able to take control of it. See more »

Goofs

When the plane crashes and Ben is giving his orders to Ethan and Goodwin to go to the crashing spot, Harper Stanhope (Juliet's therapist) stands behind Goodwin while Ben is talking, but in the same scene from Lost: A Tale of Two Cities Harper wasn't behind Goodwin at all. See more »

Quotes

Juliet Burke: You knew this would happen. You sent him out here because you knew this would happen. You wanted this! You wanted him to die! Why?
Ben Linus: "Why"? You're asking me why? After everything I did to get you here, after everything I've done to keep you here, how can you possibly not understand... that you're mine?

It's stressful being an Other
5 June 2018 | by See 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, an inconsistent first part of the season 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", was a brilliant start. The following episode "Confirmed Dead" is very nearly as great and already there are signs of a season that settled much quicker than the previous one. That continued once again with "The Economist", then dipped with "Eggtown" and then returning to form magnificently with a season and show high-point "The Constant".

Found "The Other Woman" a disappointment after the amazing "The Constant". Not awful by all means, but a lesser episode of Season 4 and it is hard to pick between this and "Eggtown" as the weakest Season 4 episode up to this point.

Certainly a lot of great things, but also disappointments. It does lack tautness and has dull patches. The writing in the more romantic-oriented moments between Juliet and Jack contains too much soap-opera that makes one cringe with a prematurely foreseeable kiss. The whole stuff with The Tempest intrigues but could have been better resolved and the lack of explanation for the station's original plan.

Other episodes do a far better job with story and plot advancing, there is not enough of either here with Ben being an obvious exception.

There is some tension here however, same with the entertainment and emotion. There is a nice unexpected twist in an episode where there are otherwise no real major or jaw-dropping twists.

It does have enough good moments in the story. Really enjoyed Ben's development and Michael Emerson has a lot to thank for that. Faraday and Charlotte entertain, loved the return of Tom and Juliet's emotional journey does have enough emotional investment, primarily because Elizabeth Mitchell is so good, to make up for the soap-operatic writing and that not all of it feels relevant.

Can't fault the performances. Michael Emerson is widely considered one of 'Lost's' best and most consistent actors for very good reason and Elizabeth Mitchell is touching.

Nor the stylishness and atmosphere of the visuals, nor the effectively understated and chilling use of music, enough moments of good writing (like Ben's final line and Juliet's stressful being an Other line) and the above competent direction.

Overall, more than decent but disappoints. 7/10 Bethany Cox
