Storyline

Sun tells Jin that she does not trust Daniel and Charlotte and she decides to move to Locke's camp. Juliet discovers her intention and tries to stop Sun telling Jin about her affair in Korea years earlier. In a flash forward, Sun, now back in South Korea, goes into labor and delivers the baby girl, Ji Yeon, while Sun insistently seeks a Panda for the newborn. Meanwhile on the freighter 'Kahana' near the island, Sayid and Desmond are introduced to Captain Gault immediately after the suicide of Regina, one of the crew-persons. Frank Lapidus begins to suspect something suspicious and tells Sayid and Desmond that the freighter their on is owned by Charles Widmore... Desmons recognizes this name. When Sayid and Desmond are sent to their new accommodations on the ship, they meet the janitor, Kevin Johnson, responsible for the cleaning of their cabin... and are shocked to see who it is.

Trivia

When Sun turns off the television in her bedroom, she had been watching "Exposé," the show within the show that starred Nikki Fernandez and Billy Dee Williams. See more »

Goofs

Jin previously stated that Sun and Sawyer have been helping him speak/understand English. Yet, he reacts when Juliet says, "Your wife had an affair." Although, plausible that Sawyer taught him the word "Affair" (we know Sun wouldn't teach him); it's highly doubtful he learned the word and its meaning with his very basic English understanding.

Quotes

Bernard Nadler: Rose... has cancer. She's sick. Dying. Well, she was dying. She says she's better now. She says it's this place. The island. But when the camp split up, I was sure that she'd want to go with Locke. Why would she want to leave the island and risk getting sick again?
Jin Kwon: Then why do you stay with Jack?
Bernard Nadler: Because it was the right thing to do. Locke, he's a murderer. It's all about karma, Jin. You know karma? You make bad choices, bad things happen to you. But you make good choices, and then good...

Time for the tissues

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 episodes between that and this were generally strong, with "The Constant" being a season and show high-point although "Eggtown" and "The Other Woman" disappointed.

The episode has much of what 'Lost' is all about. It's taut and thought-provoking, with utterly gripping and beautifully developed on-island events. It is also one of the show's most emotional episode and shows plot progression rather than repeating itself or being filler.

My only complaint actually is the unnecessary and clumsily written appearance of Hurley.

"Ji Yeon" is a very emotional episode, one of the most affecting of all the Jin and Sun-centric episodes, and it avoids being soap-operatic or melodramatic. The chemistry between the two characters is beautiful. Desmond and Sayid's story is tense and suspenseful. The flash-forward intrigues and Jin's role is entertaining and didn't feel extraneous.

Can't fault the performances, particularly an expressive Yunjin Kim giving some of her best acting to date. Daniel Dae-Kim and Henry Ian Cusick are also splendid.

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).

Overall, great. 9/10 Bethany Cox
