Lost S05E04 The Little Prince (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.

Jack is on a boat with the Losties. It’s when they were rescued from the Island. Kate has got a bruise on her face. Kate wonders what to do about Aaron. She tells Jack that Claire was flying to LA to give Aaron up for adoption. Kate thinks that they should say that Aaron is hers. Jack agrees, but he’s going to ask everyone to lie about the others on the Island. He says that he’ll need her help. She says that she has always been with him.

Three years later, Kate is putting on one of Sun’s dresses. She’s leaving Aaron with her and going to do something. Sun gets a package. It’s a file. There are photos of Jack and Ben with a hearse. She also gets a box of chocolates. In that box, there is a gun. Something is going on with Sun. She’s got her own plans. Kate has come to see Norton, the lawyer who wanted the blood sample. She has come to offer him a deal. She wants to talk to his client. He thinks that his client will refuse. Norton knows that there will be an exchange of custody. Norton tells her that she is going to lose the boy.

Sayid wants to go get Hurley. Jack finishes his examination. Jack was suspended from this hospital. The attending is pissed at him. Hurley gives Jack a ring. Hurley is in LA county lockup. Ben turns up. Someone comes to see Sayid. He wants to give Sayid some meds. He takes out a tranq gun and fires on an empty bed. Sayid incapacitates him easily. He’s garrotting him. He tells him about an address. Sayid shoots him twice with the tranquilizer. Ben and Jack walk in. It’s Kate’s address. He gives her a call. Jack heads to meet her. Ben and Sayid go to get Hurley. Ben says that they are running out of time.

Jack walks up to Kate’s car. She wants him to leave. He hasn’t told her about the men coming for her. She says that somebody wants Aaron. Norton’s client wants Aaron. They know they are lying. She’s going to follow Norton. Jack hops in. Norton arrives at a hotel. Is it going to be Claire? A blonde woman opens the door. It’s Claire’s mother. Jack wants to talk to her. She doesn’t know who Aaron is. Jack runs back to the car. He tells Kate that she doesn’t know anything. It’s not her who is trying to take Aaron.

Ben meets Norton. Norton says that they don’t have any evidence against Hurley. Ben tells Sayid that Norton is his lawyer. Jack comes clean to Kate. They are about to meet Ben and Sayid. I think that Ben was just exerting pressure on Kate in order for her to get the reasons to leave for the Island. Kate immediately deduces that Ben is trying to take Aaron. Ben admits to it. Sun is watching them from a car. She’s got Aaron and a gun. She steps out of the car with the gun.

Charlotte is still unconscious. Juliet is examining her. She’s been out for 10 minutes. Miles brings some water. Sawyer is frantic and Juliet sends him away. He stands with Locke. Daniel says that he thought it might happen. He thinks it’s neurological. The flashes throw off the brain’s internal clock. Juliet wonders why it’s not happening to the rest of them. Locke says that they have to go back to the Orchid. Locke says that this is all happening because the others left. If he goes back to the Orchid, he might be able to bring them back and make it better. Charlotte wakes up. She says that she is fine.

While walking towards the Orchid, they come upon a light shinning into the sky. Locke thinks that they should stay away from this. Locke knows something. He says that they need to keep moving. They hear a scream in the distance. Sawyer sees Claire and Kate. Claire is about to give birth. There is another flash. The next morning, Sawyer realizes that the light in the sky was from the hatch. Locke and Sawyer talk about what happened the night that Boone died. That night, Locke banged on the door of the hatch. The light came on. That’s how he knew when they were. Miles tells Daniel that he just got a nose bleed. Faraday says that it has something with the duration of exposure to the Island. Miles says that he’s been here for two weeks. Daniel asks him if he is sure of that. They return to the beach and find the camp back. All the supplies are gone. The zodiac is gone. They find a pirogue. They hop into the boat and leave for the Orchid. Sawyer tells Juliet that he saw Kate in the jungle delivering Kate’s baby. They are shot at from another boat. We can only see some black shapes on the other boat. Juliet starts shooting at them. There is another flash. They arrive in a storm. The rain is pouring.

They finally arrive. Sawyer tells Juliet about what he saw the night before in the jungle. Juliet starts to bleed from the nose as well. Charlotte finds something. It’s wreckage. There is some French writing on some boxes. The scene shifts to a few people in a rescue raft. They are freaking out. They paddle towards a body on a piece of wood. They pull the person in. He’s still breathing. It’s Jin!

Jin wakes up on the beach. A young Danielle Rousseau asks him if he is alright. Jin says that he came here on a boat that sunk. Montant is being an asshole. Rousseau is pregnant with Alex. They give him water. He’s in 1988.
