Lost Jughead S05E03 (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 episode is all about Desmond. He tries to find Faraday’s mother. At the same time, we learn more of 1954 and what exactly happened.

Once again, the storyline is split into multiple narratives. One takes place in 2004, where the island is skipping through time because of the wheel that Ben pulled. Juliet and Sawyer are lost in the events that shaped the island. They skip between 1954 and 2004. Locke wants Richard to tell him how to get off the island, but he won’t do it. Juliet mentions that Richard has always been on the island. Now that, is a mystery! In 2007, Desmond is trying to find Faraday’s mother and meets with Charles Widmore.

This is what makes Lost a great show.

It wasn’t a dream, it was a memory.
Desmond

Desmond is looking for someone on an island. It’s a flashback. He’s looking for a doctor. Penny is bleeding on their boat. She’s preggers and about to give birth. She gives birth to a baby boy.

The story shifts to 2007 in the future. Desmond’s son looks about 2 or 3 years old. He tells him about the UK. Desmond’s face is covered with some fresh scars. Penny tells him not to underestimate her father. He says that they are here because of Daniel Faraday.

On the island, Faraday and Miles lead the others to Sawyer. Charlotte’s headache is getting worse. Faraday knows what is going on with her. At the creek, Miles tries to warn some of the Losties about the trip wires he sees. It’s too late. They are blown up. People arrive with guns. They look like they are from the Dharma Initiative. A woman is in charge and tells Faraday that he just couldn’t stay away. She says that the mines were put there by the Losties, not them. They are being led to a camp. It’s the place where the Others had their little town, only it’s not yet built. It’s mostly tents. Richard Alpert walks out of the main tent. He looks exactly the same as he always has. He thinks that they have come back for the bomb. Faraday, Miles and Charlotte are brought into a tent. They are shackled. Faraday thinks that the Others must think that they are with the American military. Alpert questions him some more. Faraday knows that they have an H bomb here. Faraday admits to Alpert that he is in love with Charlotte. Charlotte is somewhat surprised to hear this out loud.

Faraday tells Miles that back in the 50s, the US tested H-bombs. Dan tells Charlotte that he meant what he said about her. This surprises Charlotte even more. Alpert tells Faraday that a month ago, they found some US soldiers setting up camp. Alpert tried to make them leave, but they wouldn’t leave so he was forced to kill them.

Locke, Sawyer and Juliet are watching their prisoners. Locke thinks that they have been traveled in time. The rifles are old, but they look new. Their captives speak Latin. They captives are Others. Juliet speaks Latin as well. The captives reveal that the Others have sent a group to capture the others at the stream. Juliet tells him to take them to their camp. She mentions Richard Alpert. This conversation takes place in Latin. The Other kills the one who talked and runs off. Locke can’t shoot him. He says that the man is one of his people.

The Other who ran away arrives at camp. Juliet says that Richard has always been on the island. Locke and Juliet arrive near the camp. Locke is very interested with Richard. He wants to finish the conversation he started with Richard. Faraday is being led somewhere by Ellie. Sawyer plans on saving Faraday. Faraday thinks that Ellie looks very familiar. The bomb is suspended. It’s name is Jughead. He finds a crack in the casing. He says that the bomb needs to be buried. She doesn’t believe him. Sawyer arrives to save Faraday. He told Ellie that he is from the future.

Locke walks in to see Richard. He tells Richard that Jacob sent him. The man who ran away is Widmore, Charles Widmore. He’s Penny’s father as a young man. This storyline takes place in 1954. He gives Richard the compass. Before Richard can tell him anything, another flash happens. Locke is in the middle of nowhere. Charlotte starts bleeding from the nose and convulsing.

Penny finds it strange that Desmond only recently remembered something that Faraday wanted him to do. To go see his mother in Oxford. Desmond is told that Faraday never taught at Oxford. Desmond finds it strange and can’t answer any questions. He goes by the Physics department. He finds a lab that’s been locked for fumigation. It’s where Faraday’s was and all of the equipment is underneath covers. He finds a picture of Faraday with a woman. He finds the machine that Faraday used and the maze. Someone walks in. He tells him that Faraday was trying to send the brains of rats back into time. He says that after what Faraday did to that poor girl, the university struck him out of its records.

Desmond arrives at Faraday’s mother’s place. Her sister Abigail lets Desmond inside the house. It turns out that Theresa is quite young and in some kind of a coma. She’s the girl that Faraday did something to. Abigail mentions that Widmore is Faraday’s benefactor. He’s been taking care of Theresa ever since this happened.

Desmond visits Widmore. Widmore spent 10 years funding Faraday’s research before he was put on the freighter. Widmore says that she is in LA. He tells Desmond to go back into hiding. This doesn’t involve Desmond or Penny. He tells Penny that he won’t leave her for anything. She says that he will never forget this, so this means that they are coming with him.
