Lost Lighthouse S06E05 (ABC)

Lost title card

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 the start of the final season of Lost. It looks like the narrative is initially split up into three different timelines, but two of them rapidly merge. Ilana and her pals quickly die at the hands of Fake-Locke. It’s pretty self-explanatory that Fake-Locke is Jacob’s nemesis. There are a bunch of new Others at the Temple, including their Japanese leader.

Juliet dies, but what does that mean exactly. They buried her body, but I’m sure that we’ll see her again. So the narrative is split between what’s going on right now on the Island and what happened after the bomb was detonated. Oceanic Flight 815 never crashed. Strangely enough, there are some links between the timelines, meaning that exploding the bomb did significantly change things. Jin is also speaking English right now, which takes a while to get used to.

Sayid does indeed die and naturally comes back from the dead thanks to the Spring at the Temple. The guitar case that Jacob gave Hurley contained a giant wooden ankh. Inside, there is a message that said that if Sayid died, they’d all be in terrible danger.

I don’t know what it is, but this season is probably going to be the best of all seasons of this show. I’m really enjoying how the past is getting redacted since they are in a new timeline. There is so much going on that I’m wondering if they will be able to answer all questions.

Jack arrives home. They still havent found his father’s body. Jack notices that his appendix is out in this reality. In the other, it wasn’t out. He picks up his son David from school. Sounds like Jack is divorced from his mom. He sees David once a month.

Jack is at his mom’s place. They are trying to find his father’s will. In the will, Claire is mentioned. Jack goes home and finds his son missing. He calls his repeatedly. He goes by his mother’s house. He takes the spare key under the rabbit statue and goes inside.

Jack finds out that his son is trying out for a music conservatory. He goes to the audition. David is a gifted piano player. At the conservatory, we see Dogan and his son. They even talk.

Jack tells David that his father told him that he didn’t have what it takes all the time. He doesn’t want David to feel this way.

Jack and Dogan are talking. He’s pretty sure that the others who left aren’t coming back. Hurley is hallucinating Jacob. He gives him a list of things to do. He needs Hugo to help someone find the Island. The Others are staring at Sayid. Jack tells him about the poison pill.

Claire gets Jin out of the bear trap. She’s been out here all alone for 4 years. Jin falls unconscious because of the pain. He wakes up in Claire’s lair.

Claire comes back with a prisoner, one of the Others that tried to kill Jin. She goes out to get supplies to help with Jin’s injuries. The Other tells Jin that if they don’t get out, Claire will kill them both. Claire seems to think that the Others took her son Aaron. Claire is sharpening an axe. She stitches him up and takes the axe to talk with the Other.

Jin finds out that Claire suffered the same torture that they put Sayid through. Jin tells Claire that Kate Aaron off the Island. Kate murders the Other.

Jin tells Claire that Aaron is at the Temple. He was lying before. She seems convinced. He says that there is a secret passage. Claire says that if it was true that Kate was raising Aaron, she’d kill her.

False-Locke arrives. He’s Claire’s friend.

Hurley is following Jacob’s instructions. Dogan is suspicious. Jacob instructs Hurley while he talks with Dogan. He says that he is a candidate and that he can do what he wants. Jacob told Hurley to bring Jack. Hugo tried doing it by himself. Jacob says that he needs Jack. Hurley tells Jacob “You have what it takes”. It has some meaning for Jack and he decides to go.

They find Kate in the jungle. Kate wants to find Claire. She doesn’t want to go back to the Temple. They find Shannon’s asthma inhaler. They are near the caves. There are bodies there. The ghost of Jack’s father led him here. He smashed the coffin when he found out that his dad wasn’t in it.

I came back here because I was broken and I was stupid enough to think that this place would fix me.
Jack to Hurley

Hurley and Jack arrive at the Lighthouse. Hurley sets up the flame so that it’s at 108°. In the reflection of the mirror, jack sees some buildings. It’s like a reflection of the past. Jack discovers their names on the compass. Jack puts it at 23°. It’s the degree with his name. It’s his father’s house. Jacob has been watching them thanks to this machine. Jack starts to smash the mirror when Hurley can’t answer his questions.

Jacob comes to see Hurley. He doesn’t seem concerned. It looks like all that he wanted was Jack to see what was in the mirror. It was the only way for him to see how important he is. Jack is watching the ocean. Jacob says that he had to get them as far away from the Temple as possible. It’s too late. Something bad is coming to the Temple. It’s already there.
