  • A great follow up of the first episode with even more action!

    This episode began where the first one ended with Kate, Jack and Charlie in the jungle along with the transceiver they found. It began with a flashback of Charlie on the plane using drugs in the toilet right before the plane started to go down. That scene was brilliant.
    It was funny how Sayid and Sawyer were just basically bashing up each other about a prisoner/fugitive that was on the flight with a US marshal who is unconscious now. It's like when Walt found the handcuffs the the jungle! When Sayid said to Kate that they'd be going up higher on the island to pick up a signal I was hoping that they'd get one! On the way the few survivors that were with them climbing up came face to face with a polar BEAR! The other survivors seemed to think that Sawyer who was hitting on Kate was the prisoner so they took away the bullets from his gun but I still thought he was innocent. It was great to have seen Kate's flashback on the plane and knowing that she was the prisoner and that Jack would get a hell of a shock if the Marshall woke up!
    The end was terrific how Shannon who speaks French listened to a French womans transmission, how she was calling for rescue for 16 years! Maybe getting rescue will be tougher than they think! Overall an awesome episode! can't wait for next week!
