Trivia

On the wall of Principal Reynolds's office there is a large photograph of what appears to be a scenic shot of the island. The timing of the flash-sideways setting is left unclear by contradictory indicators. Alex's mention of the European History AP test being on Friday places the episode in early May, the only time the test is offered, but her request for a letter of recommendation to Yale places the episode earlier, during college application season, September through February. The year of the flash sideways is similarly in doubt: if flash-sideways Alex was born in the same year as her counterpart, she would be 15 years old in 2004, exceptionally young to be applying to Yale. Jorge Garcia confirmed on his own podcast that he added in Hurley's line where he asks Richard Alpert if he's a "vampire". Garcia wasn't sure if the line would be left in, but to his own surprise, it was. Hurley comments on how Richard hasn't aged in 30 years. Yet he never met Richard in the 70s See more »

Goofs

Alex pleads with Ben to help her study for the AP exam, which is to be held that weekend. AP exams in all subjects are held nation-wide in May of each year, not September as when the scene occurs. See more »

Ben's Redemption
21 April 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Ben flees and meets Ilana, Sun, Miles and Frank also escaping from the attack to the temple. Ilana gives the ashes of Jacob to Miles to know how he died, and he tells that Ben killed him. Ilana forces Ben to dig his grave, but Locke offers him the chance to escape.

In the parallel reality, Dr. Linus plots a Machiavellian scheme to overthrow Principal Reynolds and occupy his position. But he sacrifices his plan to help the student Alex Rousseau.

"Dr. Linus" is another strange episode with the redemption of the despicable Ben. The writers continue stalling the conclusion of this show and now expect that the viewers feel sympathy for the sordid Ben? My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Dr. Linus"
