Lost Season Three: "Stranger in a Strange Land"

He walks amongst us, but he is not one of us.

What I Liked:

  • Only Ben can be creepy lying on his side immobilized
  • All interactions between Jack and Juliet
  • Sawyer’s man-to-boy talk with Karl

What I didn’t like:

  • ABC’s ads for this episode wrote a check the episode couldn’t cash
  • Jack’s backstory hit the trifecta – it was boring, confusing and seemingly pointless. I think we should be done with Jack backstories for the time being.
  • I don’t care how hot Bai Ling (Achera) is. Her acting is awful.
  • The music montage at the end. Save that trite for Grey’s Anatomy
  • This was the worst episode of season three.

What We Learned:

  • The Others have a sheriff named Isabel
  • The Others have an “eye for an eye” system for killing one of their own
  • The kidnapped Tallies, including Cindy and the two kids, seem to be doing fine but they don’t seem to know about Ana Lucia’s fate.
  • The Others have a big boat.
  • Jack’s tattoo translates to “He walks amongst us, but he is not one of us.”
  • Sawyer thinks he got a mercy lay from Kate.
  • Karl has never heard of The Brady Bunch


  • Was Juliet really on trial or was this yet another test for Jack?
  • What does the “better life” Karl gives as the reason for kidnapping children entail?
  • With the exception of Claire, how come only the Tallies were kidnapped?
  • What does the branding on Juliet’s back mean?
  • Why did Achera’s brother and friends beat the snot out of Jack?
  • Do Cindy and the kidnapped tallies live on this smaller island or are they in Othersville on the big island?
  • Was Karl born on the island?
  • Do the producers cringe when they see ABC ads for Lost promising that THREE BIG SECRETS WILL EB REVEALED?

  1. yeah this episode pretty much sucked. all i got from it was the others took the “good” ppl and brainwashed them into the utopian society that is actually on the big island where everyone else is stranded.

    i haven’t read any other reviews yet. stupid sawyer let karl go when they could’ve gotten so many more answers out of him. we do know he was probably born on the island since he didn’t know about the brady bunch. anyone with vh1 knows about the brady bunch.
