"" was the 14th episode of Season 3, and was broadcast on March 28, 2007. After Nikki seemingly drops dead in front of Hurley and Sawyer, the survivors find Paulo in the same state and investigate their supposed deaths, realizing they don't know much about them. Meanwhile, Charlie admits to Sun that it wasn't the Others who attacked her.

Synopsis编辑

小島外的閃回编辑

File:Nikki-stripper.JPG

An emcee announces the arrival of "Corvette," the "pride of St. Paul" as Nikki takes off her coat to reveal a faux diamond bikini, and dances around a pole on a club stage. She spots someone entering Mr. LaShade's office and follows him with her coat on, catching the man opening a suitcase of money on his desk. She confronts him and says that the money was meant for the orphanage and Mr. LaShade must really be "the Cobra". The other man aims a gun at her but she shouts "razzle dazzle" and kicks to the floor and grabs it. She aims it at Mr. LaShade but he shoots her first. She falls to the floor, apparently dead. Two dancers, Autumn and Crystal, burst in, and LaShade tells them Corvette was working for the Cobra and he (the Cobra) will pay.

A voice says "and cut!" and a television crewman closes a clapperboard labeled Exposé. LaShade, revealed to be the actor Billy Dee Williams, helps Nikki stand up. Creator of the show Howard L. Zukerman announces that it's a series wrap for Corvette as the crew applauds Nikki. He walks her outside, where the Sydney opera house can be seen in the background, and offers to bring her character back. He asks if she's leaving Sydney to go back to Los Angeles but she says she loves him, and isn't leaving.

84天前(飛機墜毀前4天) Howard and Nikki are eating at his house and he introduces his new chef Paulo to Nikki when she compliments the food. He says Paulo came to Sydney and came to Howard's office every day until he gave him the job. Howard offers her a bread roll and she sees that he has placed a diamond bracelet there for her. He is about to explain why his wife is an obstacle to their getting married when he clutches his chest. Paulo comes out and checks his pulse, announcing he'd dead. Nikki grabs a necklace with a key off of Howard's neck as she complains about having to eat the same food as him. They enter Howard's closet and unlock a secret safe Nikki claims no one else knows about. Paulo prepares to smoke but Nikki prevents him so they don't leave evidence. Inside the safe they find a matryoshka doll, the contents of which Nikki refers to as "razzle freaking dazzle."

80天前(第1天) PauloNikki登上815航班前,坐在悉尼機場的一間餐廳裡。Paulo在讀報紙上的一則新聞給Nikki聽,那是報告Howard是死於心肌梗塞的死訊,他們還大笑和接吻。接吻其間,NikkiPaulo為什麼嚼口香糖,他告訴她那是誡煙口香糖,而且他也誡煙了。They toast each other with champagne and are interrupted by Shannon loudly complaining about a lack of seating in the waiting area and Boone being responsible for them not getting first class tickets. Boone politely asks Paulo for their extra chair, and he agrees, but Shannon pulls Boone away, accusing his "flirting with random guys" of delaying them. Nikki asks Paulo to promise her they will never end up like Shannon and Boone.

小島上的閃回编辑

80天前 - (第1天) The survivors of Flight 815 roam around the debris of the fuselage in shock. Nikki runs past Shannon who is screaming for Boone and searches for her bag as Gary Troup gets sucked into the engine, which explodes. Nikki screams for Paulo, turning over a survivor, but it's Arzt who asks, "Are we alive? Did we survive? Look at me". Boone runs up to Nikki and asks if she has a pen. She spots Paulo staring out in shock at the ocean. She holds his face with concern and asks him where the bag is. Paulo was shocked that she was most concerned about the whereabouts of the diamonds rather than his (and everyone else's) well-being.

75天前 - (第6天) Nikki and Paulo search through the luggage at night while theorizing about the nature of the Monster. Nikki tells Paulo to focus as they need to find the bag before they are rescued. Ethan offers them clothes if they need them and introduces himself. Nikki says they are looking for Paulo's nicotine gum. Ethan suggests looking inland. Arzt runs by shouting that Boone has taken the water. Jack comes out, tells them he has found water, and makes his "live together, die alone" speech.

File:Niki artz.jpg

57天前 - (第24天) Nikki finds Dr. Arzt examining his collection of 20 new species. One, the female Medusa spider, emits an extremely powerful pheromone. Nikki asks for his help in figuring out where her luggage might have landed. Arzt offers to draw a map showing possible trajectory of the debris that fell from the plane as it crashed. Paulo acts jealously about Nikki asking Arzt for help, and suggests Ethan would have been more help. They follow Arzt's map and find the drug smugglers' plane. Nikki asks him to climb up there to look for a radio but he is afraid it will fall. They discover the Pearl hatch and open it. Paulo wants to investigate but Nikki doesn't let him.

File:Paulodive2.jpg

48天前 - (第33天) Shannon and Arzt are yelling at Kate for not telling the group about the guns from the Marshal's case. Shortly after that, Nikki and Paulo arrive and question what's going on. Shannon tells them that Kate, Jack, and Sawyer didn't tell the camp about the case of guns, and leaves angrily. Nikki asks Kate where she found this case. Nikki and Paulo go to the waterfall, and Paulo asks if Nikki would be with him if not for the bag. Nikki only says that it's worth $8 million and he should dive in, since she had to seduce Howard. Paulo sees the bag but tells Nikki he only sees dead bodies. She leaves and he dives under again.

File:Paulo digs.gif

32天前 - (第49天) Paulo nervously takes the nicotine gum out of his luggage bag and starts to dig a hole on the beach when Locke discovers him. Locke suggests he find a more secure place for whatever he's hiding, stating, "Things don't stay buried on this Island". Locke clarifies his statement by saying that the beach will erode. Paulo enters the Pearl, where one monitor is on, showing static. He hides the matryoshka doll in the toilet reservoir. He hears a noise and peeks through the bathroom door. Ben and Juliet enter, thinking the door was left open by Tom. Ben tells Juliet to have Tom cover the Hatch with the plane. They tune the monitor station to the Swan video feed, which displays Jack. Upon seeing him, Juliet asks, "Is that him? Shephard?" Ben says he will recruit Jack by exploiting his emotional investments. Juliet asks if this means they'll grab Ford and Austen too. Ben replies that they'll get Michael to bring them to the Others. They leave, Ben commanding Juliet to "tell Tom to cover up the station with the plane", and Paulo finds their walkie.

9天前 - (第72天) Locke invites the Losties to the Pearl station, and Nikki and Paulo tag along. While the rest are investigating the video feeds, Paulo pretends to need to use the bathroom. He retrieves the matryoshka doll, which contains a small pouch, and hides it in his underwear.

File:Medusa bite.jpg

12小時前 - (第81天) Nikki tells Paulo that she is sad that Thanksgiving passed two weeks ago without them realizing it. She is worried that they will never be rescued, but Paulo comforts her. He tells her he is glad they didn't find the bag because it might have torn them apart. He leaves to get them breakfast and Nikki finds his nicotine gum in the sand. Nikki finds Sawyer and demands he gives her a gun. He refuses, saying that she is so agitated that no good can come of it. He says he doesn't have the guns any more and wouldn't give one to her if he did, as Desmond watches. He yells "and who the hell are you?" as she leaves.

File:Fondle.jpg

8小時前 - (第81天) Nikki brings Paulo into the jungle and confronts him about having the diamonds. He feigns ignorance but she shows him the gum. She takes out one of Dr Arzt's specimen jars, opens it, and flings a Medusa spider at Paulo. It lands on his neck and bites him. He kills it, and it remains stuck to his hand. She tells him that it's called the Medusa spider because it paralyzes the victim for around eight hours, and slows the heart. Paulo collapses and can't move. Nikki coolly begins to search him for the diamonds, at first guessing that they are hidden in his shoe. She takes off his shoe and throws it into a tree. She opens his pants and finds the pouch in his underwear. Paulo tells her he took the diamonds because he was afraid of losing her if she found the diamonds and didn't need him anymore. The clicking sounds of the Monster are heard in the distance and Nikki is distracted as many Medusa spiders, attracted by the scent of the smashed female spider, march towards the pair. Nikki is bitten by one and she runs away. Nikki runs through the jungle, stops suddenly and digs a hole, burying something, then continues running. On the beach, Sawyer and Hurley are playing ping pong when Nikki staggers towards them and collapses, mumbling "paralyzed."

Real-time events 编辑

生還者們在討論Nikki的屍體。

Nikki在森林裡不斷地跑,突然她停下來,掘了一個洞並埋了些東西,接著她繼續跑。在沙灘上,SawyerHurley正在打乒乓球,這時Nikki蹣跚地從森林裡走出來,而且還倒地了。Hurley上前問她發生怎麼事,她說了一些像"pa-- leyes--"的字,但SawyerHurley則聽不懂。SawyerHurley去找人幫忙,而他往森林裡看看,但Hurley告訴他Nikki死掉了,接著Sawyer問他Nikki是誰。

SawyerHurleyJinSunCharlieNikki的屍體旁邊討論,但依然不能推斷出她的死因。Sun說她可能是食物中毒,應該檢查一下他們的食物,而Charlie則發現Nikki的手指夾下面有一些泥土。Sawyer認為她說"plywood"(夾板),但Hurley認為她說"power lines"(電線)。Hurley突然認為她說"Paulo lies!"(Paulo說謊),而Sawyer說他們應該去調查Paulo

SawyerNikkiPaulo掘墓穴。

SawyerJinHurley在森林裡找到Paulo躺在地上的屍體。他的pants are undone and his shoe is in a tree. Sawyer looks into the jungle but claims not to see anything. Jin takes a water bottle out of Paulo's bag, but Sawyer takes it away and empties it in case it's poisoned. Hurley accuses Sawyer of contaminating the crime scene. Jin suggests it was the Monster.

Hurley, Jin, and Sawyer bring Paulo's body to the graveyard. Hurley says the Monster must be responsible because Paulo and Nikki were with Eko when he said, "you're next". Sawyer disputes this, saying that he thinks Eko meant "We're all next". Hurley berates Sawyer for referring to Nikki and Paulo as "Nina and Pablo."

File:Exposescript.jpg

Sawyer searches through Nikki and Paulo's living area while Hurley tells him to be careful. Charlie reports that Sun checked the food and no one else is sick. They see the bugs and Charlie remembers them as Arzt's. They theorize that Nikki and Paulo were his friends. Charlie finds Nikki's Exposé script. Hurley professes being a big fan of the show and discovers Nikki's name on the cast listing. He is shocked to discover that Mr. LaShade was "The Cobra." Sawyer discovers a walkie and tells them it's exactly the same as the ones the Others carry on their belts. He accuses Nikki and Paulo of working with the Others.

The group discusses the situation at the graveyard. Hurley asks Sawyer how Nikki and Paulo could have been working with the Others. Sawyer reminds him of what Michael did. Hurley says they are too far away but Sun counters that they grabbed her right in their camp. Sawyer offers to make a perimeter sweep, taking out a gun, which Hurley questions him about. Charlie and Sun cover the bodies.

Hurley finds Desmond and asks if he can use his psychic powers to find out what happened, but Desmond says he only see flashes. He suggests asking Sawyer, whom he saw Nikki arguing with earlier in the day, right before she died.

File:Normal expose-promo24.jpg

Vincent uncovers the bodies. Hurley discusses his findings about Sawyer with Charlie and Sun. Sun defends Sawyer and accuses the Others. Hurley leaves to get Desmond. Charlie confesses to Sun that he was the one that bagged her head and dragged her into the jungle, and that it was Sawyer's idea.

Later when they all regroup at the grave, Hurley asks for Sawyer's gun and tells him he knows about his argument with Nikki. He asks if Sawyer killed her, but Sawyer insists he didn't do it. He tells them he kept it a secret, because he deduced from the dirt under Nikki's nails that she must have been hiding something important. He shows them the pouch and throws it to Sun. She opens it to reveal many diamonds. Sawyer tells her to keep them, says he had nothing to do with the deaths and walks away.

NikkiPaulo被活埋前。

Sun finds Sawyer and confronts him about what Charlie revealed. She returns the diamonds to him, pointing out that they have no value here, and slaps him. Later, the group gathers around the grave for a funeral and Hurley delivers a eulogy. He says although it appears they killed each other over diamonds, they were nice to him, he liked Exposé, and they were part of the camp. Sawyer scatters the diamonds in their grave.

生還者們開始埋葬NikkiPaulo。當NikkiPaulo的瞼被沙覆蓋時,Nikki突然淨開眼,但是SawyerHerley也看不到,最後NikkiPaulo就這樣被活埋了。當Nikki倒在SawyerHurely面前時,Nikki是十分清楚地說"paralyzed"(癱瘓)的。

Trivia编辑

General编辑

  • Although this episode is a Nikki & Paulo-Centric, the majority of plot development surrounds Sawyer, Charlie and Sun as Sun finds out the truth about her kidnapping.
  • The only dialogue that Nikki and Paulo have is in their flashbacks even though it is their centric-episode (unless you count Nikki's "Pa-- leyes--").
  • "Exposé" is French for "exposed" and German for "synopsis"; in colloquial English, it means a revelation or exposure, often revealed in the print or news media.
  • The slate board shown at the beginning of the episode informs that the fictional season finale episode of "Exposé" was directed by Stephen Williams, who directed this episode of Lost as well.
  • Billy Dee Williams plays Mr. LaShade in the fictional "Exposé" (who turns out to be the show's main villain "The Cobra"), and also appears as himself in this episode.
  • "Mister LaShade" is an anagram for "See DHARMA List". (Anagrams)

Meta-references编辑

The episode employs several examples of self-references, foreshadowing, and reference to fan discussions:

  • One of the shows produced by Zukerman is called "Strike Team Alpha," which is very similar to the popular 70's television series, " the A Team"
  • Before the main title screen, Sawyer says "Who the hell is Nikki?", perhaps a direct shout-out to fan discussion surrounding the introduction of the characters Nikki and Paulo.
  • Nikki unintentionally makes light of Locke when she tells Paulo, "You don't want to climb up to a plane, but now you want to climb down a ladder into a dark tunnel? I don't think so."
  • Locke says, "Things don't stay buried on this island" and "Make sure whatever you're hiding won't wash away."
  • Paulo wonders if the Island is home to a dinosaur, echoing one of the most early fan theories about The Monster/Polar bears.
  • Nikki points out to Paulo that Thanksgiving was two weeks ago and they completely missed it, a point often questioned by fans
  • When Nikki sees Boone and Shannon fighting in the airport, she says to Paulo, "I hope we never end up like them." Both couples end up dying.

Production notes编辑

File:Exposescene.jpg
File:Exposescene2.jpg
  • There was a deleted scene that included the purple sky event from Season 2 Finale. ABC promotional photos for the episode depicted moments from that scene, and the full scene was included among the "Lost Flashbacks" on the season 3 DVD boxset.
  • A podcast rehash for the episode was released on March 30th, 2007. (Official Lost Podcast/March 30, 2007)
  • Confusion surrounded the title of this episode. ABCMedianet's calendar originally reported the title as "Expos." The title in the press release PDF packet was listed as "Exposé," but the actual press release on the site had the title listed as "Exposi." Eventually, all ABCMedianet sources changed the title to the correct one, "Exposé." Some parts of ABC's website name the episode "Expose" because the acute e will not show up in some browsers, hence the titles "Expos" and "Exposi."
  • This was the first episode of Season 3 in which all credited regular cast members appeared; however, Jack and Sayid only appeared in archive footage (though some of Jack's footage is made up of alternate takes originally from "", not actual previously used material).

Bloopers and continuity errors编辑

  • Shannon's hair changes length dramatically in every different scene she appears in. When she is seen in the airport (with Boone), her hair is much longer than it was originally in "". She is later seen in archive footage with the original hair length but a closer shot causes her hair to, again turn longer. This is due to the not so accurate wigs made for Maggie Grace.

Cultural references 编辑

Lost中涉及的文化
(只包括直接提及的)
艺术书籍汽车游戏电视和电影音乐哲学宗教和意识形态科学
  • Animal Farm: Arzt's exclamation that "the pigs are walking" is a reference to the last scene of George Orwell's Animal Farm in which the pigs are standing, a metaphor for the downtrodden becoming like their oppressors. It is a book commonly read in high school.(Books)
  • Chicago: Nikki and her character Corvette both use the catch phrase "Razzle Dazzle" which is a song in the musical Chicago about distracting a jury with dramatics so they won't see the truth, and is also the title of a movie about the fiercely competitive world of children's dance. (Movies and TV)
  • The Ron & Fez Show: "Razzle Dazzle" is also a reference to The Ron & Fez Show on XM satellite radio. Associate Producer "East Side" Dave starts off a weekly gossip segment with a voice over of another producer saying "Razzle Dazzle" in a ridiculous fashion. Brian K. Vaughn, new writer on Lost and big Ron & Fez fan, said recently during a visit in studio that he would be working some references to their show into the dialogue of Lost. This is widely speculated to be the first such reference. (Pop culture misc. references)
  • Evil Under the Sun: Sawyer is reading Evil Under the Sun by Agatha Christie. The plot of the book is a murder on an isolated island, and the key elements are a live person posing as a dead body, and the time of death not being what it appeared to be. The plot of the episode itself plays out similar to many murder mysteries. (Books)
  • Chevrolet Corvette: Nikki's character is named "Corvette", like the sports car. (Cars)
  • Jurassic Park: Upon suggesting that the Monster is a dinosaur, Nikki tells Paulo that the Island is not Jurassic Park.
  • Charlotte's Web: Zuckerman, the producer of Exposé, is the same name as the farmer in Charlotte’s Web, Homer Zuckerman. Charlotte’s Web’s title character is a spider, as is one of the pivotal characters in this episode, the Medusa spider.
  • "Rump Shaker": The music Nikki strip teases to is "Rump Shaker" by Wreckx-N-Effect. (Music)
  • Charles Darwin: Arzt refers to himself as "the next Charles Darwin" the famous naturalist and writer of the seminal work on evolution. Ironically, the "Darwin Award" is a fake award "given" to people who kill themselves or otherwise remove themselves from the human genepool in humorous ways, similar to how Arzt blows himself up. (Philosophy)
  • Wolfgang Puck: Zukerman refers to Paulo as the "Wolfgang Puck" of Brazil, an Austrian-American celebrity chef, restaurateur, and businessman based in Los Angeles. This is likely also a reference to Rodrigo Santoro's nickname in the media of "The Brazilian Tom Cruise." (Pop culture misc. references)
  • University of Wisconsin: Ethan appeared wearing a sweatshirt from the University of Wisconsin; the episode's writers, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, met each other at the University of Wisconsin. (Pop culture misc. references)
  • The A-Team. When Nikki asks for a gun from Sawyer he explains to her that all of his guns were taken by the A-Team. The A-Team was a popular TV show that ran from 1983 through 1989.(Movies and TV)
  • American professional wrestling. Sawyer refers to Nikki and Paulo as "jabronis," a term for a wrestler who is booked to regularly lose on shows (called jobbing). (Games) This is quite similar to being a redshirt.

  • The Russian matryoshka dolls' nesting form mimics the show Exposé: a show within a flashback, within the episode "". It's also a hint on Lost itself, for being a show where mysteries are solved only to reveal other similar mysteries right beneath the original layer. (Symbolism)
  • Witnessing Shannon and Boone arguing at the airport, Nikki asks Paulo to promise her that they will never end up like them. Nikki and Paulo end up dying on the Island. (Foreshadowing)  (Irony)
  • Nikki stops Paulo from lighting a cigarette after having killed Zukerman, saying, "We poisoned him; let's not poison ourselves;" that is what they end up doing. (Foreshadowing)  (Irony)
  • After Zukerman tells her that they can bring her back next season, Nikki says, "I'm just a guest star, and we all know what happens to guest stars." This foreshadows her departure from the show (as ABC deems Kiele Sanchez and Rodrigo Santoro guest stars). (Foreshadowing)
