Storyline

Nikki comes to the beach where Sawyer and Hurley are playing ping-pong, stumbles, whispers some unintelligible words and apparently dies. Hurley doesn't understand Nikki's words: "Paulo lies..." and the group searches Paulo in the woods. They find him like Nikki and they believe the couple have been poisoned. Meanwhile, the past of the actress Nikki and the Brazilian chef Paulo in Sydney is disclosed, when they poisoned Nikki's lover and stole a fortune in diamonds, and detailing how they landed on the island and about them trying to retrieve the stolen diamonds with both attempting to betray each other showing their interactions with all the other characters, which were only glimpsed in previous episodes. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

This episode is also a take on a play called 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead', which chronicles the lives of two characters played out against the backdrop of events from Shakespeare's Hamlet. In Hamlet, the two characters are charged with determining Hamlet's motives, and plans. Instead they, themselves are killed. The characters are thrust into the universe of Hamlet in much the same way that Paulo and Nikki were thrust into ours, by the will of the writer. Inasmuch, they seem to serve no valid purpose and are generally mocked throughout for being the extraneous folk they are. In "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead", however, much like Expose is Nikki and Paulo, the playing field is reversed and they are the major characters with Hamlet seeming to be the character with misappropriated importance.

Waste of an hour
29 March 2007 | by olly-40See all my reviews

This latest episode does nothing more than re-tell a centuries old story we've all been told before, the only originality lying in its setting, certainly not in its telling. A dull execution, and an utterly predictable finalé, make this episode barely watchable in and of itself, and, combined with its failure to reveal anything at all of the ongoing plot, made it a complete waste of time to watch.

A victim of its own success, and the conceit of its creators, Lost has become nothing more than a platform for pretension and self-indulgence. We have been subjected to episode after episode that does nothing, goes nowhere, and it's fast becoming a bore.
