Danielle Rousseau arrives in the camp of survivors at the beach and advises that "The Others" are coming. There is black smoke in the sky, and they have three choices: run, hide, or die. Jack recalls his meeting with Ana-Lucia Cortez in the airport. Meanwhile, the group is about to launch the raft. Sawyer tells Jack the conversation he had with his father in a bar in Australia. Jack, Kate, Locke, Hurley and Leslie Arzt go on an expedition to bring explosives from the Black Rock to blow the hatch. There they can shelter the survivors against "The Others". Meanwhile, Jin and Sun make peace and there are farewells to Michael, Walt, Sawyer and Jin as they finally set sail on their makeshift raft to find help and safety.
The survivors hike to the caves leaded by Sayid, while Claire and Charlie stay at the beach cleaning the baby. Danielle Rousseau abducts the baby from Claire, leading to Sayid and Charlie pursuing her. Meanwhile, Jack, Kate and Locke bring the explosives from the hold of the Black Rock; a grounded 18th Century slave ship containing several boxes of old dynamite, and Arzt has a fatal accident with the dynamite while explaining the danger of the nitroglycerin. The mysterious and unseen island entity makes another appearance, nearly killing Locke. Sayid shows the airplane full of heroine to Charlie, leading him to take some of the stash. Charlie and Sayid retrieve baby Aaron from Danielle who explains that she just found out that the "others" do not want Claire's infant... but another child. At sea, the four castaways venture takes an shocking twist when Walt is kidnapped from the raft by "the others"; four scruffy-looking men in a motorboat whom shoot Sawyer, throw overboard Michael and Jin, and blow up the raft with explosives and automatic weapons. Back on the island, there is a discussion between Locke and Jack, where Locke would symbolize faith and Jack, science. Locke blows the hatch, against the will of Hurley, who had just seen the cursed numbers 15, 16, 23, 42 and 4 on one side.

|In the season finale, while they are building the raft, Michael instructs Jin, "No, this one goes there, that one goes there. Right?" This is a quote from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) spoken by Han Solo to Chewbacca when the two are working on the Millennium Falcon. Later, while on the raft, Sawyer refers to them as Han and Chewie.||Sawyer: Jack! About a week before we all got on the plane, I got to talking to this man in a bar in Sydney. He was American too. A doctor. I've been on some benders in my time, but this guy, he was going for an all time record. It turns out this guy has a son, his son's a doctor, too. They had some kind of big time falling out. The guy knew it was his fault, even though his son was back in the States thinking the same damn thing. See, kids are like dogs, you knock them around enough. they'll think they did something to deserve it. Anyway, there's a pay phone in this bar. And this guy... Christian... tells me he wishes he had the stones to pick up the phone, call his kid, tell him he's sorry, that he's a better doctor than he'll ever be. He's proud, and he loves him. I had to take off, but, something tells me he never got around to making that call. Small world, huh.|
|Only one third of The Black Rock was built. The rest was CGI.||Danielle: Our ship went around on this island 16 years ago. There were 6 of us: my team, 6. At that time I was already 7 months pregnant. I delivered the infant myself, the baby and I were together for only 1 week when I saw black smoke. A pillar of black smoke 5 kilometers inland. That night they came, they came and took her, Alex, they took my baby. And now, they're coming again. They're coming for all of you.|
|According to the Season 2 DVD special feature "Canine Castaway", the scene of Vincent swimming out to follow the raft was not planned in the script; it was thought of on the day of filming by director Jack Bender.||Jack: Everybody wants me to be a leader until I make a decision that they don't like.|
|This is the first episode since the pilot that didn't center on one individual character for the flashbacks. Instead in this one we get flashbacks from Michael, Walt, Kate, Sawyer, Jack, Sun, Jin, Shannon, Boone and Sayid, all showing what each one was doing before they got on the plane.||Locke: Each one of us was brought here for a reason.|

If you could change anything about this episode, would you, what would it be, and why? (especially now that you know the ending of the show)?
What do you think was the worst thing about this episode and why?
Is there any falshback or episode about Jack regarding his combat skills? or if he does have some kind of military training?. I mean something that caught my attention is that Jack is really good at shooting and fighting maybe only behind Sayid or MiB (example: The Incident, he was beating a very angry Sawyer and not even trying to fight back, a Sawyer who spent 3 years as security head vs Jack who spent most of his last time drinking and stuff. Then after being beated he shot the DI guys like it was nothing). Also Jack despite being the only doctor is usually the tip of the spear in most of the missions and during the first season (don't reacall exactly) he talks down Kate's idea of giving weapons to some of the survivors because he does not want to give guns to untrained people (later he says that Sayid is a soldier, Locke a hunter and Sawyer someone used to guns).
So my question if is any time in the show where is addressed why Jack is such a badass regarding his combat skills despite being a surgeon?
I'm currently watching Lost again after not seeing it since it was live and finally hit my first "I can't stand this episode" moment: S4E4 -Eggtown
Good God was I wanting that to end so badly. Anyone else?
What's your least favorite episode?
Okay, so this is the part where Jacob was introduced and still doesn't make sense how he is the "owner" of the island
When they (the others plus sun and new people) visit Jacob is that the present time
Is John Locke really dead this time
Does that mean Jack and other losties caused "the incident" when they dropped the H bomb
TBH, I didn't like this finale very much. Plot heavy and feels like I'm not getting any answer
They could have done SO MUCH MORE with Mikhail! I would have loved to see flashbacks for him (instead of just one flash sideways). He's definitely my favorite Other and side character. I want to know why he became the one-eyed man he was present time on the island!
I really liked this one. I liked the feel of it. No real "threat" it had that first season exploration feel about it. Hurley is one of the best comic relief characters and this story was a much needed breath of fresh air.
-- Who can dislike anything with a Cheech guest role? I mean that guy is pretty cool and a pleasant fill in for Hurley's dad.
-- I guess I never realized how much money he won. All of the things mentioned he bought is a fortune on his own. Plus, after his first series of flashbacks I can imagine that he made bank on the insurance from the destroyed Mr Clucks (probably a meteor double indemnity clause or something).
-- Jin's facial expressions here are priceless. The scenes with him and Hurley are always my favorite
--Sawyer teaching Jin English while drinking was hilarious.
-- The flashbacks were okay....I mean did they really need to give Hurley a dead beat dad who just came back for the money? Probably not.
All in all...a great episode. I didn't move the story along but it did allow us to take a breather and enjoy the surroundings. I laughed a lot...I missed an episode like this.
I'm rewatching again, and am currently at the point where Juliette first joins the survivors on the beach after handcuffing herself to Kate. When she arrives Claire is sick, and she goes to fetch a suitcase full of medicine when Sawyer and Sayid confront her. Juliette talks her way out by reminding them they're no saints either, mentioning to Sayid "what happened in Bagram" and to Sawyer how he just killed a guy right before getting on flight 815.
Juliette is an important character, but she's mainly a fertility doctor, and a liability too because she wants to leave so badly. I can imagine her knowing everything about Claire, and it's clear she knows a lot about Jack when he's held prisoner but I assumed this is because she had his file. But why would she know these intimate details about Sawyer and Sayid? Does she know this much about everyone? What is her role that it would be so important to learn the files of 40+ people by heart in 2 months time?
ETA: I get it. You all hate Blacks
Thanks for creating a show that shitted on every Black character.
I would hope most parents would react the same way if their child was violently kidnapped in front of them. I don't know how anyone could expect his character to he focused on anything beyond Walt's kidnapping.
Having Michael kill Ana and Libby was an easy cop out by the writers after they decided to fire the actresses.
I also think the writers never actually cared about Michael at any point in the show. He was just a piece of Walt's story and once the writers realized they weren't going to go threw with it, Michael got tossed by the wayside.
IDK, I just hate when a character is hated because of poor writing especially when I know the writers are capable of so much more. Shitty writing and character development is the only reason Michael should be hated over a villain like Ben.
There also aren't any young Black women on this show, just elderly rose.

Hi folks, I’ve been a LOST fan since season 1. I even have a numbers tattoo inked in my arm. But I just recently joined this Reddit after watching the seasons again.
So I’m sure it’s been asked several times, but what is everyone’s favorite seasons Ranked. I’ll start.
