    Now that's good TV. Finally, we get some sort of development on the island that isn't cryptic remarks and unexplained noises. The flashbacks were amazing too!

    Does anyone have a feeling that the island is going to start taking back what it's given everyone? First Locke's legs, and it seems to me that Charlie will have something to do with the heroin (hopefully that won't affect his relationship with Claire ).

    And what of poor Boone? When I re-watched the episode I could see his front hadn't actually been ripped open as I first thought, but his injuries still seem pretty severe. With only four episodes left, I'm fearing more and more for my favourite characters!

    Did anyone think the plane was a toy plane at first? It looked to me like a radio controlled plane in Locke's dream, and when Locke told Boone to climb up to it, the perspective made it seem to me like Boone could pick it up out of a hedge. No? I suppose that's just me, then.

    The reply Boone got on the radio was hard to hear - I checked the transcript, and apparently the voice said
    Spoiler:
    "We're the survivors of flight 815!"
    Dude. That's all I can say.

    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    It actually has a meaning you know... or am I just not in on the joke? ...

    Yes, I agree this is one of the best episodes of S1. The only ones that were better were Numbers and Walkabout.

    Wow. Thanks for sharing. I thought it said "You're", but if it said "we're" that's another kettle of fish...

    best episode of the season so far. cant believe what locke's parents did to him. i really felt for him. it probably explains why locke was in a wheelchair.
