Jack and Locke separate in order to retake the abducted Claire and Charlie. Jack's party ends up discovering defeat by Ethan… but miracle doc Jack also manages to somehow rescue Charlie from the brick of death. I guess it's called payback. It's not good. As for Locke and his faithful follower Boone, they discover a Mysterious Hatch and share some Star Wars-related witty cues. -
JACK EPISODE aka Anoyinggggggggggggg!!!!!!!!!
Anyhow, JACK cuts across the jungle (poor jungle) and yet, he does not get killed by the Monster. BUT, he is attacked by Ethan (yay!). Afterwards, followed by his faithful worshiper Kate the Murderer, he discovers Charlie hanged from a branch or something and heroiclly manages to bring him back to life and jackish (that's not a word) reality. That is a really well-directed scene (props to Stephen Williams), but its conclusion is far from awesome. In fact, it's kinda lame. As for the flashbacks, they are also well-directed (double props to Stephen Williams) but Jack is present (not) to save the day. On a brighter note, Locke and Boone discover the Hatch, which is going to evolve into a very interesting key-storyline in Season 2.
