Trivia

The statue in this episode (also seen briefly in LaFleur) is of the Egyptian goddess Taweret. Taweret is the goddess of fertility and childbirth. See more »

Goofs

The first time we see inside Jacob's workroom, the flames from the fire are going backwards, indicating the video was time-reversed - perhaps to indicate that time doesn't work right in Jacob's presence. See more »

Quotes

Sun Kwon: Who's Jacob?
Ben Linus: He's in charge of this island.
Sun Kwon: You said John was in charge.
Ben Linus: No, I said he was the leader. A title that I have discovered is incredibly temporary. But everyone answers to someone and the leader answers to Jacob.

Lost Delivers a Fitting Finale
15 May 2009 | by ajaymittalSee all my reviews

Far too often do TV dramas hold answers back until the end of each episode. This, quite obviously, is employed to retain the viewers' attention; very much like a child eating through their vegetables in pursuit of that promised dessert! However Lost is a pioneer in the unpredictable answer-feeding, a method that has given the series that extra edge when it comes to invoking surprise to its max. The Incident does exactly that as it introduces a very unfamiliar yet rather familiar character right from the outset.

The rest of this 2-part episode is very Lost-like in its script; polished to perfection resulting in 90 minutes of captivating and pulsating drama. In keeping with tradition the episode follows the usual framework that has served every one since the Season 1 – flashbacks (or forwards) with characters giving us their reasons for what they are doing. Enlightening the viewer with a sense of purpose keeps you more involved than you would be but also, and more importantly, it stirs up emotion as well. I thought that giving each main character a share of the limelight was in tune with the 'purpose' of the episode – that everyone had a part to play, not just Jack and Locke.

Yet what is Lost without unanswered questions? In what I believed to be a fantastic ending, Lost has kept us talking, theorizing, speculating and ultimately wanting more. What more can you ask?
