Flashback--Flashback: Tail End Survivors

Goofs: When Ana-Lucia gives mouth to mouth on the little girl, the girls left side of the face is partially covered in sand. When it cuts her face is full of sand.

Trivia: Trivia: The period of time between the plane crash and the end of this episode is 48 days. 4 and 8 are the first two "cursed" numbers.

Title Meaning: This episode deals with what happened on the other side of the Island for the 48 days the tail section remained out of contact from the beach survivors. Also, the other 48 days were laden with violent encounters with the Others, suggesting that the title may refer to The Other (as in the Others) 48 Days.
