Storyline

Charlotte and Faraday head for a Dharma Station, called The Tempest. Thinking they're going there to kill everyone on the island, Juliet, on a tip from Others therapist Harper, leads Jack to the station to stop them. Meanwhile, Ben tells Locke he will give him some answers as long as Locke frees him afterward. More of Juliet's past on the island is revealed, including her secret romance with Goodwin, and the reason why Ben won't let her leave the island. Written by Chris Green

Trivia

When Locke goes to visit him, Ben is reading Philip K. Dick's "VALIS", a science fiction novel where the writer, as "deus ex machina" able to change the plot at his will, becomes slowly the protagonist of the story, living it and no longer able to take control of it. See more »

Goofs

While Kate is drinking from a "Dharma" coffee mug as she talks with Sawyer, the logo on the bottom of the mug becomes visible and states "Mainstays" - which is a modern-day Wal-Mart brand name and would not have existed when the Dharma Initiative was created. See more »

Quotes

Juliet Burke: Harper hates me. We only talk because we have to. I get the feeling that she's a mean and spiteful person.
Goodwin Stanhope: She's my wife.

"See you guys at dinner!"
6 March 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

"The Other Woman" is at a disadvantage due to the dull, obligatory, soap-opera nature of the story being told. You can see the Jack/Juliet kiss coming from a mile off, the characterization of Ben sounds fine on paper (that he still has a childish attitude, but is responsible of something so important), but comes off as trite and silly in execution, and as affecting as Juliet's emotional journey in the episode is, mostly thanks to Elizabeth Mitchell's performance, it's only barely enough to make this a somewhat watchable, mediocre hour of "Lost".

The stuff with Harper is trite, the stuff with Ben is only occasionally effective, such as in the scene where he takes Juliet to Goodwin's body, but the episode has other strengths. Most of the scenes with Faraday and Charlotte are entertaining, although the showdown at the Tempest is disappointing, and it's pretty awesome when Charlotte knocks that meddling brat Kate out. "Eggtown" has more pull and power in the story, but it's also got an awful, obnoxious script. "The Other Woman" has strong enough dialogue and some decent characterization here and there, which saves it from being the nadir of season 4, though it is still mediocre. Ben's line at the end is great, as is Juliet saying "it's very stressful being an Other, Jack".
