    Trivia (17)

    • When Jack enters the funeral parlor, we see the portion of the casket that opens, to the right. It switches to the left (or the film is reversed) in the moments where Jack is walking towards it, and we only see the curtain in the background.

    • The two or three female whispers that Locke hears as he is about to shoot himself and seconds before Walt appears to him are very unclear. The most agreed upon interpretations are: "Help me" "Naomi. I don't know that name" "I have hell to pay"

    • Goof: In the opening scenes, the Losties all head south on the beach (sun is setting on the ocean) with the ocean to their right. This would indicate that they are traveling around the island counter-clockwise. However, after the break, the group is seen with the ocean to their left. This would indicate that they are now moving in the opposite direction. Even if they had reached the other side of the island, the ocean would still be on their right had they been traveling the same direction.

    • Ryan: Where are they? (he points his gun at Jin) Sayonara. SayĆ“nara is Japanese for 'goodbye', not Korean as Jin speaks.

    • This episode is the first time we see Mikhail Bakunin without his eye patch on.

Using power given to him by God, he parted the Red Sea to allow the people to pass through on dry ground.
