  • Not very exciting.

    7.0
    This episode didn't really make me feel anything...it was alright but nothing really happened that interested me. Sun and Jin have been looking for each other for ages and that is getting a bit annoying...Locke as the man in black kind of annoys me too. I really don't like everyone on that other island, you know those ones who captured Jin. Why are they even around?



    The universe where the plane didn't crash was probably the most interesting part of the episode but that didn't actually happen so all in all it was pretty pointless. I like Desmond so his return at the end was good to see...I'm still not getting any real spark from this show anymore...moreless
  • While mainly a Sun and Jin centric show this one was pretty busy filling in a lot of storylines.

    The two Koreans are just boy/girlfriends in the sideways world here, Sun is quite the seductress as she loosens up her buttons, baby. Jin is mixed up with the bad dudes and we see how he ended up in the walk-in fridge. Surely we've seen the end of Martin Keamy now? In island time Sun gets a strange case of aphasia and can't seem to connect with her hubby. NotLocke struggles to gather his team as the story spins and whirls. Lots of stuff happening, all in the immicable Lost way. And finally the package, who not what and there's a shocker.moreless
  • We learn 2 things about rooms. How Jin got in his and how Desmond came out of his.

    Obviously we knew shortly after Kevin Durand comes on to the screen that soon Jin will be captured by him and taken to the restaurant but will be eventually saved by Sayid so I wasn't worried about him during the episode. Who I was worried about though was Sun. Being that MiB has not been told no to in Locke's form, when she said no to him and began to run, I wondered what was going to happen to her. So she slams her head on a tree and then MiB runs away. Why? Don't know. But then MiB's people get taken out, well for a short while, and then here comes Locke running out of the jungle to see what happened to them. His enemy is Charles Widmore so now Widmore has scored some major points here and isn't exactly the bad guy we thought he was. And last but not least Desmond is called "The Package" and is told that the island is not done with him yet. What is his purpose on this island though? Is he a catalyst towards this "war" we are being setup to witness? Good episode, but is it just me or did this episode feel like it was 20 mins long? I guess one thing I have come to notice is that the episodes are speeding up in pace so I am left sitting there scratching my head saying "There is only 10 mins left to the episode??!. I want to see more!!!". So it is obvious that the plotline is drawing us in, well at least me so the producers are keeping things moving and I'd say they are doing a pretty good job with trying to answer questions in the midst of current events that are being setup to happen. Til next week!moreless

    Sun really delivered her best performance ! .







    and her finale scene with Jack was really touching and breathtaking . Jack really did an amazing and Phenomenal acting this season . and Sayid scene with Locke when he said i don't feel anything why ? and Locke simply answers him it's better for you because you don't wanna feel what's coming . ( amazing scene ) . Clarie i just felt so sorry for her when she asked Locke am i on the wall ? and he answered with a cold heart NO . if you pause the scene at Clarie face , i dare you that you will not tear ! . and Last Desmond ! welcome back , this man is a Legend , i bet he will blow you mind in the coming episodes as Always . 10/10 .moreless
  • More answers, and developments :-)

    After first finding out why Smokie (locke) wanted to leave the island, the first thing that struck was that he was well, smoke, why not just bubble over and drift away? Well apparently he just cant, or he wouldnt be here in the first place. Why can't he? He didnt explain. Could have been more forthcoming.



    Some episodes ago, Sayid went to visit his brother (who is now married to Nadia - Sayid's sweetie) and then ended up some a restaurant kitchen where he killed the ppl who had brough him there, and rescued Jin in the process. For those of you wondering how Jin got there in the first place, this episode should answer that. Alpert also grows a pair of balls and for once he knows what he has to do instead just being the only guy with eyeliner (just kidding) and that is "to stop the man in black from leaving the Island". Wasnt that his mission from the very moment he started working for Jacob, in directly anyway? Frankly he can be a far more interesting character but sadly, somebody with real answers considering how long he's been on the Island but oh well, once a lackey always lackey. Whitmore kind of finalises the point that if Smockey got of the Island, all hell will break lose, and hence he's brough the package to stop that, and for some odd reason he needs Jin's help. Lastly, for an episode to be titled "Package" there was really nothing about the package except we see a drugged Desmond being dragged out of the sub. So is he the package? I guess we will just have to wait and see. Overall, not a bad episode but like all others previous episodes (except for the series finally, hopefully) did not have enough answers.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (11)

    • In the flash-sideways, Jin shoots Mikhail in the eye, the same eye he wore the patch on on the Island.

    • Many fans misheard Keamy say to Jin in the flash-sideways timeline as: "I'm gonna strap you in here. Just in case you figure out what's about to happen to the Island, I can't have you freaking out." The line is actually: "Just in case you figure out what's about to happen to you." This has been confirmed by the ABC episode recap and by Jorge Garcia and Bethany Shady from the Geronimo Jack's Beard podcast on their Facebook page.

    • When Widmore hands Sun's camera to Jin, Widmore says, "Turn it on," and the sound of the lens protruding from the camera is heard, although the lens was already protruding, indicating the camera was already turned on.

    • When Keamy asks Sun to sit down on the bed, he is shown placing his left hand on her right shoulder. As the shot changes to behind Keamy, he is using his right hand on her right shoulder.

    • 95% of the people have left-brain dominance (doesn't matter if you are left or right handed), so the main language is located there and the secondary ones are located on the right brain. So, unless Sun is right-brain hemisphere dominant or learned English first (or hit the right side, like she did in the chase scene), she should speak English and be unable to speak Korean, since she is BLEEDING from her left side of the head.

    • In the scene when Locke is chasing Sun, we can see she turns her head to the left and hit the branch with her right side. But later when Ben finds her she is bleeding from her left side.

    • The Numbers:
      Jin in being kept in room 23.
      Jin and Sun stay on the 8th floor of the hotel.
      Jin is placed in room 8'42, separate from Sun.

    • When Sayid removes the tape off of Jin's mouth in the flash-sideways, he reaches to remove the tape from right to left, but the cut to Jin shows Sayid removing the tape from the left.

    • The map Zoe shows Jin does not look like previous maps of the Island.

    • This is the first time Sayid and Desmond have seen each other since Sayid left the Searcher in "There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3", a 27-episode gap.

    • Ilana changed clothes for the first time since arriving on the Island. Same for Sun and Ben who have their first clothes change since arriving back on the Island.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Locke: We're taking a boat ride to the other island.
      Sawyer: What do you need a boat for? Can't you just turn into smoke and fly your ass over the water?
      Locke: Do you think if I could do that I'd still be on this island?
      Sawyer: No, 'cause that'd be ridiculous.

    • Ilana: Hugo will find him. He will track him down and bring him back.
      Miles: Unless Alpert's covered in bacon grease, I'm not sure Hurley can track anything...
      Lapidus: Hey, don't talk about bacon.

  • NOTES (5)

    • Andrew Divoff (Mikhail) appears for the first time since "Through the Looking Glass, Part 2", an absence of 41 episodes.

    • All credited main cast members appeared in this episode - the first time since the Season 4 finale - making it a 27-episode gap.

    • Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), though without lines, makes his first appearance since "LA X, Part 1", an absence of 8 episodes.
      Also, Desmond appears for the first time in the original timeline since "The Variable" and on the Island for the first time since "The Economist", a 38-episode gap.

    • A Sun/Jin-centric episode.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Casanova: Keamy calls Jin "Casanova". Giacomo Casanova (1725 – 1798) was a Venetian adventurer and author. He was so famous as a womanizer that his name remains synonymous with the art of seduction.

    • Bonanza: Sawyer calls Jin "Hoss". Eric "Hoss" Cartwright was a big man, the warm and lovable middle son of Ben Cartwright in this TV cowboy show that aired from 1959 to 1973.

    • Godzilla: Keamy comments, "I feel like I'm in a Godzilla movie," when speaking with Jin and Sun, both of whom can only speak Korean.
