  • Some really important stuff in this episode about the ethos of the programme. A shocking ending but the revelations about why Michael is there is the most revealing and shocking stuff here.

    I really enjoyed this episode. Beautifully shot and scripted as always with perfect musical choices. Using 'It's Getting Better' was an excellent choice of dark sad pathos. The revelation that Michael is there because he can't kill himself because the island won't let him till he has finished the work he must do is pivotal. It turns on its head the idea of death on the island being to do with redemption as it seems it is more like they must forfill some sort of destiny first. The ending of this episode is pretty abrupt but shocking and will leave you guessing. It will also make you, well I will, cry if it means we don't get to hear Rousseau's story. The acting in this episode is
    absolutley perfect as usual.
