  • How this episode played out, and the questions that were raised in my head afterwards made this 3 part finale yet again another favorite.

  • I'm sure I'm going to get blasted for this review, but here goes anyway: a lot of unbelievable (even for LOST) things happened here.

  • First, the memorable Hatch shot, followed by 2 people playing chess, then we have to go back. Now, there's no place like home! The season four finale. 3 hours of absolute LOST!

  • A landmark in television history, and yet another brilliant twist

    • Jack: Why are you here? Ben: I'm here to tell you that the island won't let you come alone. All of you have to go back. Jack: Are you...Sayid, I don't even know where Sayid is. Hurley...is insane. Sun blames me for...(looks agonized) And Kate...she won't even talk to me anymore. Ben: Perhaps I can help you with that. This is the way it has to be, Jack. It's the only way. You have to do it together, all of you. Jack: How? Ben: I have a few ideas. (Jack turns to leave) Jack. I said all of you. We're gonna have to bring him too. (Jack turns to look into the open coffin. We see Lockes body in the coffin)

    • Ben: Hello, Jack. (Jack is startled and moves away from the coffin) Sorry. Didn't mean to scare you. (Pause) Did he tell you I was off the island? Jack: Yes he did. Ben: When did you speak to him? Jack: About a month ago Ben: And Kate? Jack: Yeah. Yeah, he came to see her too. Ben: And what did he say to you? Jack: He told me... that after I left the island... some very bad things happened. And he told me that it was my fault. I belive him. And he said I had to come back. Ben: Yes, Ive heard you've been flying around in passenger planes. Hoping that you'd crash. It's dark, Jack. Very dark.

    • Keamy: Wherever you go... Widmore, he'll find you. Ben: Not if I find him first.

    • Ben: I hope you're happy now, Jacob.

    • Hurley: Checkmate, Mr. Eko.

    • This was the first season without any actor credited as a "Special Guest Star".

    • This episode and Part 2 were nominated for a 2008 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Single-camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series.

    • International Air Dates: Norway: June 4, 2008 on TVNorge Australia: June 5, 2008 on Network 7 Denmark: June 6, 2008 on Kanal 5 The Netherlands: June 15, 2008 on Net 5 Latin America: June 30, 2008 on AXN Spain: July 31, 2008 on FOX Italy: September 1, 2008 on RAI 2 Czech Republic: October 5, 2008 on AXN Hungary: October 5, 2008 on AXN Belgium: October 13, 2008 on VT4

    • The final flashforward scene from "Through the Looking Glass" is slightly reedited in the "previously on Lost" segment at the beginning of the episode, adding a new shot of Kate's car driving off which then leads into the first scene of this episode. However, "Through the Looking Glass" ended with Jack turning around and walking towards his car, while in this episode, he is still watching Kate's car drive off when Kate stops and changes to reverse gear.

    Trivia (23)

    • As the Oceanic 6 arrive on Sumba, the blocking and set dressing of Sumba's shore is similar to Elliott's second flashback from Lost: Via Domus.

    • The logo of the Hoffs/Drawlar Funeral Parlor includes a black orb, just like the Pearl Station, except that was white.

    • Since it wasn't physically possible to land the helicopter on the freighter (the blades would hit the ship) the production team worked very hard to make it look as realistic as possible without actually showing it landing. To create this illusion, they added a shadow of the helicopter on the surface of the freighter when Desmond is shouting at it. The shadow shows the helicopter perpendicular to the freighter, when in the next shot it is parallel (the natural way to land).

    • After the island is "moved", the only people left are Desmond, Lapidus and the Oceanic 6, which are 8 people. 8 is one of "The Numbers".

    • With this episode; Ben is the only non - Oceanic 6 person to have a flashforward.

    • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty: Michael using liquid nitrogen to cool the C4 battery is reminiscent of a sequence in the video game, where the protagonist must work against the clock to freeze a number of C4 bombs planted aboard an offshore oil refinery.
