  • Jack usual episodes, with something to deliver, but nothing too strong.

    Plot Details/Objective -» With only to empty centric episode to be filled, was time for the two remaining main character have their centric episode. This is way Jack is the Main focus here. He is ill, for some reason, the island is punishing him, maybe because he didn´t listen to Ben. But doing Jack centric episodes is complicated, this is why he had to be ill, and in his FF we saw exactly how he was before the FF that show us a Drunk Jack, addicted to drugs and in great depression.

    What I Like/Disliked -» Difficult to say what I like. The episode was entertaining, but more than that is difficult to say, since Jack FF didn´t affect my state of emotions, neither his Island event.

    Overall:

    Presentation -» (5/10). Weak presentation, since you already know that Jack will not die.

    Complication Phase -» (6/10). Jack illness, again you know that he won´t die. Sawyer situation was more interesting. Nice detail when Jin discovered that Charlotte can speak and understand him

    Climax -» (7/10). Maybe when Juliet told how Jack pretended that he wasn´t in love for Kate and the FF when he broke up with Kate. However, there was only good drama, nothing great here. Jin conversation with Charlotte was nice too.

    Cliffhanger/Ending -» (6/10). You know what happened, Christian or whatever that identity was, take Claire with him and they left the Baby for some reason. Appear more like a plot convenience to fit with Kate FF.

    Flash-forward's -» (7/10). Nothing great here, just Jack usual drama and crying, nothing that you hadn´t saw before.

    Time and Scenes Management -» (7/10). Jack FF was necessary to explain his last FF and how his relationship was with Kate and what ended it. His illness in the Island, well, only season 5 or 6 can say that this was not filler, this is why a rate it goo for now. Jin Scene with Charlotte was a nice setup.

    Dialogues -» (7/10). Jack FF had all the necessary dialogues, Jin and Charlotte too, Juliet and Kate too, the rest I am not sure, until season 5 or 6 justify Jack sudden Illness

    Action /Adventure -» Wasn´t an episode for this. Drama/Emotions -» (8/10). Good acting but nothing that can make you feel sorry for Jack or can make you care too much.

    Suspense/Tension -» (6/10). Nothing that make you pay some much attention, that you stay at the edge of your seat, Only sawyer scene had one situation like that.

    Mystery/Curiosity/Doubts/Hints -» (7/10). You can be a little curious about how Jack ended up like he did in his last FF.

    Surprise/Twists -» (7/10). Christian appearance for Claire was a surprise, Charlotte Knowing and understanding Korean was too. Claire abandoning her baby was strange. Jack usual episodes, with something to deliver, but nothing too strong.
