The Lost Rewatch: 1x12 "Whatever the Case May Be"

I know I've bled over a little bit into week four, but we're virtually right back on track. Here are my thoughts on episode twelve of the series and season one, entitled "Whatever the Case May Be." In the episode, when Kate and Sawyer find a case on a dead passenger, Kate begins to act erratically, using whatever means necessary to get it away from Sawyer. At the beach, Sayid and Shannon begin to get close. Flashbacks in this episode center around Kate's involvement in a bank robbery in New Mexico.

  • Sawyer and Kate find a waterfall on the Island. This is the same waterfall that Paulo found the diamonds in, which he hid from Nikki, and also the waterfall that Kate and Hurley landed in after being transported off Ajira Flight 316.

  • Kate finds the Halliburton suitcase under the seats of some dead passengers. This case will be the source of so much conflict on the Island, due to the fact that it contains guns and a toy airplane.

  • We start to see a blossoming relationship between Sayid and Shannon, which has its false starts but leads to both of them having trust in the the other.

  • Kate pulls out a topy airplane from the Halliburton Case. It belonged to her childhood friend Tom Brennan. He was seen playing with it outside a general store before Kate entered and attempted to steal a lunchbox, and they eventually buried it in a time capsule, for them to open up years later, shortly before Tom was killed by the police. So Kate is telling the truth when she says that the airplane belonged to both the man she loved and the man she killed, though she was only indirectly responsible for Brennan's death.
And that's it for the episode. I know that it's a really short blog, but the episode has no real weight to the following story (save for the guns). The next episode, "Hearts and Minds," has a bit more usable content, so expect a longer blog for it. You can discuss the episode in this forum thread, read others' posts about it at the rewatch hub, and edit the episode's article.
