Something Nice Back Home - S4-E10

Corrected entry: When Jack goes to visit Hurley in the mental hospital, the doctor lets Jack into Hurley's room via a swipecard. When Jack leaves he just opens the door and walks out. Surely this room would be secure both inside and out? (00:14:50)

Correction: Not necessarily - Hurley is in the institution voluntarily, there is no point in locking him up. There is a point in giving him privacy if he wants it, however.

Season 4 generally

Corrected entry: "The Shape of Things to Come" - When Ben goes to say his goodbyes to Alex after the Smoke Monster attack, her eyes are closed when he approaches her body. However, her eyes are wide open when he turns her over, and he closes them himself.

Correction: Given the angle that her head is at when we see her body as Ben approaches it, it cannot be accurately determined whether her eyes were open or closed.

Ji Yeon - S4-E7

Corrected entry: During the 'flash forward' when the Asian woman is having her baby, the doctor suddenly comes in and orders the nurse helping her to 'just give her something for the pain'. A doctor would never do that. A nurse is not allowed to give a patient medication without a strict, specific drug order from a doctor or Physician Assistant. In fact, a nurse would probably lose her license if she did.

Correction: This assumes that the regulations are the same in Korea as they are in the USA. Also, in this type of situation there are orders pre-written for certain standard types of medication (pain, nausea, etc.). Both the doctor and the nurse would know that. When the doctor tells the nurse to "give her something for the pain," the nurse would simply give her a dose of whatever pain medication had already been ordered.

Season 4 generally

Corrected entry: In the scene where Sayid is going through Ben's passports the first one he comes to is a red/maroon New Zealand one. New Zealand passports are blue.

Correction: Not true. The top passport, the New Zealand one, is blue (although the light in the room is dim, so this may appear otherwise). Sayid then flips quickly through the pile, looking at the passport covers, before opening one with a red cover. The one he opens is Swiss.


Season 4 generally

Corrected entry: Season 4, "The Economist" - When Sayid looks over at Naomi's body, her eyes are closed. However, later on he walks over, bends down, and gently closes her eyes himself. I know things are freaky on this island and dead people might not necessarily stay that way (wouldn't be the first time someone we thought was dead suddenly showed up), but I doubt Naomi's eyes popped back open on their own.

Correction: Actually, they do. Open is the human eyes 'default' state when awake. After someone dies, you can close them, but rigor mortis will pop them open again after a short time. They are generally glued or sewn shut before a funeral.
