Objective - » Very simple, with only 3 episodes left, who would be the better person to focus? Exactly, Charlie and it is time for him to die like a hero. The focus are his situation, his flashbacks in form of highlights (his greatest 5 moments) and Jack and Co, which already was in setup for the Complication Phase. Flashbacks -» Charlie flashbacks don´t follow the normal plot (presentation, set up the complication, development of the complication, climax and ending.). The writers had come with a better idea, present the 5 best moments in his life, and in a long time, this flashbacks are welcome. Great Scenes There, every one of the last 3 scenes have a meaning in different context.
Charlie Event on The Island -» The beginning was ironic when Naomi made that comment, then the complication is set when Charlie has to die, or there will not be any rescue, poor guy. Others scenes is meant to be very sad, the last one with Desmond is very touching. The last scene is unexpected.
Jack and Co Vs The Others -» With the setup already in play, was time for us to hear Jack plan. His plan was beautiful(this was the presentation), however, things got more complicated when he learn that they will come in this night (setup of the complication Phase). Now the plan is reformulated and things will be more dangerous, which is exactly the objective for the season finale.
1 - Plot Holes: Silver. Ben Is so Stupid or the Writers want he to be, Saying his plan in front of her to her, is very logical that she would prevent that to happen. Not only that, was totally out of character when Ben wanted to kill any Man that would appear in their way, this was weird, since they don´t kill, unless is necessary. But since is about sacrificing logic for emotions, I will accept that.
2 - Time and Scenes Management: Gold *. If you are a sensible person, you may cry.
3 - Surprises/Twist/Shocks/Cliffhangers: Gold. The ending of this episode is unexpected.
4 - Action: None. Wasn´t necessary.
5 - Funny: Wasn´t necessary but I didn´t notice.
6 - Drama: Gold*Very touching and you can cry if you are more sensible.
7 - Tension/Fear: Very little.
8 - Excitement Level (curiosity/Mystery/Doubt/Revelations: Bronze/low. Not that type of excitement, since one of the character have a death sentence and for sure, will die. This is a setup.
This episode continue to make setups for the season finale, Charlie death sentence, Sayid, Jin and Bernard will have to risk their Life´s. Jack have to lead his people to the Radio Tower and the Other are coming. However, what makes this episodes special, is all Charlie touching Scenes.
