Lost Something Nice Back Home S04E10 (ABC)

Lost is a United States serial drama television series that follows the lives of plane crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island, after a passenger jet flying between Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, United States crashes somewhere in the South Pacific. Each episode typically features a primary storyline on the island as well as a secondary storyline from another point in a character’s life. The show was created by Damon Lindelof, J. J. Abrams and Jeffrey Lieber, and is filmed primarily on location in Oahu, Hawaii. The pilot episode was first broadcast on September 22, 2004. Since then, three seasons have aired. The show is produced by ABC Studios, Bad Robot Productions and Grass Skirt Productions and airs on the ABC Network in the United States. Its incidental music is composed by Michael Giacchino. The current executive producers are Abrams, Lindelof, Bryan Burk, Jack Bender and Carlton Cuse. Because of its large ensemble cast and the cost of filming in Hawaii, the series is one of the most expensive on television.

From the Lost Wikipedia entry.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

This is Jack’s story after the Island. His flashforwards concentrate on what happens after Kate’s trial. In the present on the island, Jack needs to have surgery. Jin, Sun, Faraday and Charlotte head to the medical station to get some supplies. Sawyer, Miles and Claire make their way back to the beach. The show is split into these four different storylines, two of them intersect.

Jin makes an interesting discovery. Charlotte speaks Korean and he uses this to make sure that Sun will be able to get off the island with their child. Sawyer and Miles are on their way back to the beach. Miles hears ghosts and finds the buried bodies of Rousseau and Carl. Rousseau is most definitely dead.

More drama is happening to Sawyer’s party when Claire walks off in the middle of the night with Christian Sheppard, her dad. Her dad is also Jack’s dad. Aaron is Jack’s nephew. She disappears at the end of the show and Sawyer finds Aaron all alone.

It was her time to go?

Jack needs an appendectomy. It goes through without any complications. In the future, Jack and Kate are together. Jack starts drinking again when he learns that Kate has been doing some errands for Sawyer, who elected to stay on the island. She doesn’t divulge exactly what she has been doing for him.

I thought that this was a great episode. Finally, Jack and Kate are together, but they have problems. Big problems. Jack is suspicious and Kate doesn’t really help matters when she helps out Sawyer. I think that Claire’s disappearance is the most important happening of this show. Claire is gone. From the flashforwards that involve Kate, we can assume that Claire is gone for good. She will not come back since Kate takes Aaron off the island as her own son.

Has she joined the Others? It’s like the island took her back somehow.

* * * * *

The show starts with Juliet waking up Jack. He can hear an argument outside.

Bernard is in Faraday’s face for lying before. Jack collapses after calming everyone down.

In the future, Jack gets a call from a nurse confirming an appointment that’s been moved. Jack gets up and puts some lingerie into the dirty laundry basket. He goes into the kitchen and starts coffee. He steps over a Star Wars toy. He goes back upstairs and says hello to Kate in the shower. They kiss after she steps out.

Jack is reading a story to Aaron while Kate watches on. Kate’s happy to see him with Aaron. She’s glad that he changed his mind and that he is here.

Jack gets up again. Kate is worried. Everyone is worried. He looks bad.

Miles, Sawyer and Claire are heading back. Miles starts to hear voices. They are at the place where Rousseau and Carl were killed. Miles starts to dig and finds their bodies. Rousseau is totally dead. They were buried in shallow ground.

Jack is popping some more pills. He thinks that he’s got food poisoning. Juliet thinks that it’s something else. She has him lift his shirt up. She feels his appendix. He needs surgery to remove it. Jack admits that the pain started yesterday. It’s going to rupture soon.

Juliet wanted Sun to go get some surgical instruments from the medical station. She doesn’t know all of these instruments. Faraday volunteers. He has a little tiff with Charlotte’s negative attitude. Juliet tells them to go. She gives Jin a gun and instructs him to shoot them in the legs if they try anything funny. Juliet has the others at the beach disinfect some tarps.

Bernard tries to convince his wife that everything is fine. She’s suspicious about the reason why he got sick. The day that they were supposed to be rescued, the person that they depend on the most gets sick. Rose says that people don’t get sick on the island. They get better.

Juliet is prepping Jack for surgery. He wants to talk Juliet through the surgery. He wants Kate to hold a mirror for him.

In the future, Jack sees his father again. He gets a call from Dr. Stillmann about Hurley. He isn’t taking his meds anymore. Hurley thinks that everyone is dead. They never got off the island. Jack says that he changed his mind after the trial. Hurley says that it looks like Heaven. Hurley says that he’s been seeing Charlie a lot. They have been talking on the bench outside. Charlie had a message for Jack. He knew that Jack was coming. It states “You’re not supposed to raise him Jack.” Jack isn’t happy. He leaves. Charlie also said that someone is going to be visiting him soon.

Charlotte really looks amazing. She’s got these pale vivid blue eyes and this reddish hair. An awesome combination. Jin and Sun watch their exchange before they get into the medical station. He asks Sun in Korean if Charlotte knows that Dan likes her. Sun says that she’s a woman. She knows. Sun has got her back to Charlotte. Jin is looking at her. Charlotte glances back in a way that implies that she understood what they had been saying. She even gives Jin a brief smile, almost like an afterthought. Actually, it wasn’t directed at Jin, it was just her reaction to what Sun had just said.

While Dan and Charlotte gather the supplies, Sun is worried and tells Jin that they aren’t going to help them. Charlotte once again looks at them. There are more knowing glances from Charlotte.

Sawyer’s party face off with Lapidus. He tells them to hide. Keamy is coming for him. One of the soldiers is injured. Aaron makes a sound and Keamy is weary. They leave thanks to Lapidus’ insistence.

At the beach, everything is set.

In the future, Jack is still outside Hurley’s mental hospital. He comes home to Kate. He asks her to marry him. Kate starts to cry as he pulls out an engagement ring. She says yes.

Sun’s party comes back to the beach. Sun and Juliet go sterilize the medical instruments with Faraday. Jin confronts Charlotte about her speaking Korean. He threatens to torture Faraday if she doesn’t stop lying. She starts talking Korean. He tells her that when the helicopter arrives, she will take Sun on it and taker her away from the island. Charlotte wonders about the others. Jin says just to get Sun off the island. Charlotte acquiesces silently.

It’s time for Jack’s appendectomy. The pain is too much and Jack starts to distract Juliet from the surgery. She takes the decision to knock him out. Bernard uses the chloroform to do so.

In the future, Jack hears a strange sound. It’s the beeping of a smoke detector. He climbs up to take the battery out. Jack is surprised to see his father sitting on the couch. He calls out his name. Another doctor named Erica comes over and his father disappears. He has her write him a prescription for Clonazepam, and anti-anxiety drug.


When he comes home, he hears Kate talking with someone. She mentions in her conversation that Jack is never home before 8PM. The person can come over any time before that. Jack takes his Clonazepam and drinks a beer.

Claire wakes up and finds Jack’s father holding Aaron. She calls him dad. This means that Jack is her half-brother.

At the beach, the surgery went well. Juliet is suturing him up. Jack is going to be fine. Kate is happy. Juliet tells Kate that Jack kissed her when Kate came back from the Barracks. She tells Kate that he does love someone else. She implies that Jack loves Kate.

In the future, Jack is waiting for Kate. She comes home and find shim drinking and popping pills. She wonders why Veronica their nanny was home. She usually leaves at 4PM. She was still there at 6PM. Kate wants to know why he’s acting so strange. He says that he went to see Hurley and that he didn’t tell her because he didn’t want to upset her. He asks her where she went today. Kate asks him to trust her and just leave it be. Jack isn’t about to let it go. He wants to know whom she has been seeing. She says that she was doing something for Sawyer. She promised not to say anything. He’s not here. He chose to stay on the Island. Jack came back for her. He needs to figure out her problems.

Jack screams at her. He isn’t her son. She’s not related to Aaron, whereas Jack is his uncle.

Miles tells Sawyer that Claire walked up in the middle of the night and walked away with her father. Miles didn’t follow. He’s being smart. Sawyer almost punches him, but he hears Aaron crying. Sawyer goes to find him. He finds him near a tree, but Claire is nowhere to be seen. She’s disappeared.
