Trivia

The final scene set in London, England, was actually shot in England. Alan Dale could not travel to Hawaii to film the scene due to acting commitments pertaining to his West End role in Monty Python's "Spamalot" production, so the crew came to London, as the scene was deemed too important to be cut. While there have been some choicest of scenes shot outside the islands of Hawaii, this is 1 of the only 2 scenes, or even a shot for that matter, in entire 6 seasons to have been shot overseas. The rest is in Lost: There's No Place Like Home: Part 3 (2008). See more »

Goofs

The desk clerk in Tunisia was wearing Hijab (scarf that Muslim women wear). However, the Hijab was illegal in Tunisia till early 2011, years after the episode was originally aired and even longer since its setting. See more »

Quotes

James 'Sawyer' Ford: They just started shooting. Why?
Ben Linus: Those people were murdered to make you angry, James. So you'd be more likely to come storming in here en throw me through the walls.
James 'Sawyer' Ford: Well, what's wrong with that? Sounds like a great plan to me.
James 'Sawyer' Ford: [to John Locke] What do you say? On three?

"The Emperor's New Clothes"
25 April 2008 | by TomMerrySee all my reviews

It is time for we "Lost" fans to face the truth - Season 4 is not remotely to the standard of the first three. The episode tonight as an overall 42 minute or so presentation was not good. At times the writing was laughable. The secret in presenting fantastic ideas and situations is to make them credible. We did not see this tonight. At the beginning of the season we witnessed a desperate attempt to create a new season by largely creating an almost new show with fresh characters and story lines. That would be wonderful T.V if it worked, but it doesn't and viewing figures show that we, the public, are not buying it. The show now is just a blatant attempt to keep everybody's job and money coming in for the network. End the show this season and let us all remember when "Lost" was superb, compelling viewing during those first three seasons. Please.
