Did You Know?


Sarah wasn't originally pregnant, but when Julie Bowen showed up on set, they decided not to cover her pregnancy because it was more painful to Jack to see how his ex-wife had moved on with her life. See more »


As Jack is leading the group to the radio tower, Naomi asks him what he used to do for a living. She would have known he was a doctor, as he had been treating her as she recovered from the punctured lung she received parachuting onto the island. See more »


Bonnie: So what's the code?
Charlie Pace: What?
Bonnie: Oh, Charlie, if you're going to turn off the jamming equipment you're going to need the code. And only three people know about it. Me, her, and Ben.
Charlie Pace: Well, I guess I won't need the code, since this entire station is going to be flooded anyway. I'll just turn off your little jammer and the helicopters come and rescue all my friends.
Bonnie: But if this station floods, what happens to you?
Charlie Pace: I die.

Awesome, Great and goosebumps
28 May 2007 | by d-bauer-1See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the double final feature of Lost. The first part started slow, but the second part really kicks ass. A continuous mix of Action, Drama, Tense, Heroism and strange moments. Although the rescue may be nearby, you can feel that something bad is coming again. Maybe the revenge of the Dharma institute. The next questions will also be : Do they really want to go back to the real world , What or who will be waiting for them in the real world and what is Jacob's story ? Michael and Walt, did they really go back to the real world ? The final part with Jack and Kate delivered me some goosebumps. I can't wait until season 4 starts !
