3. Tabula Rasa
Jack and Hurley uncover Kate’s secret. Her tangled web of a back-story never really amounted to much. They try to mercy kill the marshal which takes two attempts. Kate’s mug shot makes her look like a crackwhore. This was good.
A boar hunt reveals a secret about Locke. Jack says they need to burn the fuselage with the 200 plus bodies inside. Locke throws a knife at Sawyer. Okay.
“You’ve either got very good aim or very bad aim.”
5. White Rabbit
Boone steals the water. Jack rips his shirt off and has flashbacks to his sucky parents. Good.
8. Confidence Man
Shocking secrets and brutality are provoked by Sawyer. Shannon and her sudden onset asthma bore. Good.
Sayid encounters Danielle who babbles about the sickness and the Others. Hurley builds a golf course that was forgotten about a few episodes later. Sayid hears the voices in the jungle and notices the power cable going into the ocean. This was good and creepy.
10. Raised by Another
Claire has freaky dreams and is menaced by Ethan. Very good.
“He wasn’t on the plane!”
12. Whatever The Case May Be
Sawyer, Jack and Kate fight over a locked briefcase. A toy plane is meaningful to Kate. More Kate flashbacks show her dubious past. Very good.
13. Hearts and Minds
Boone bonds with Locke over digging up the hatch. Shannon is nasty and useless. Okay.
Walt trails after Locke the island’s version of Jim Jones. Okay.
Claire returns. Charlie kills Ethan. The Black Rock is mentioned. Very very good.
Jeff Perry guest stars as more of Sawyer’s sordid past comes out. Okay.
19. Deux Ex Machina
The Nigerian drug smuggling plane is found. Boone sends an SOS and gets a reply. Then he receives mortal wounds in another plane crash. Locke tantrums at the hatch and a light comes on in an utterly creepy moment. This was very good.
“We’re the survivors of Flight 815!”
20. Do No Harm
Claire goes into labour, Locke is missing, Boone is dying and Jack freaks out in wild eyes, screaming, foaming at the mouth insanity. Excellent.
21. The Greater Good
Locke crashes Boone’s funeral. Jack screams, rants and passes out. Shannon’s angry. Good.
22. Born To Run
Kate’s past is revealed some more. Jack and Sayid learn about the hatch. Walt tells Locke not to open the hatch and tells his father they have to leave, now. Very good.
