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.
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.
There’s one thing that doesn’t make sense. Since apparently none of the chosen few can die, why could Sayid die? I thought that he was chosen as well? Well, he died and was infected by the Monster. Shouldn’t Jacob’s ‘gift’ have saved him from this?
Ab Aeterno means from the beginning of time in Latin. I was actually wondering if we’d ever get to Richard’s story. In the end, we did, but naturally, it poses even more questions, like exactly what are Jacob and his nemesis. One thing’s for sure, the nemesis is evil.
For one thing, why does Hurley now speak to the dead?
The struggle between Jacob and his nemesis definitely has a religious connotation. His touch granted Richard eternal life. His replacement candidates also cannot die. There is something divine about him, or maybe Jacob is the Island manifested.
The Nemesis could be a part of Jacob, though he says that Jacob stole his body and he was left with only this.
It was no surprise to see that Desmond made a comeback. I was just wondering when this would happen. However, we don’t know why Widmore needs him. What happened to Penny and their child in the redacted timeline?

Someone is using night vision goggles on the beach and near The Man In Black. He tells Jin that all of the names in Jacob’s cave need to be crossed off for them to leave. He tells Sayid that he is leaving the camp for a while. Sayid says that he doesn’t feel anything anymore.
Jin tells Sawyer that he is leaving the camp. Before they can do anything, tranquilizer darts are fired upon all of them. Widmore’s soldiers arrive. They were looking for Jin.
At the beach, Ilana says that they are going to wait for Richard to come back. Sun is pissed. She’s pulling out some tomatoes. The Man in Black comes to see her. He says that he found Jin. Sun doesn’t believe him. Sun runs away from him. She collides with a tree. Ben finds her. She starts speaking Korean to him. She says that False-Locke is here.
Meanwhile, False-Locke is back at his camp and finds everyone unconscious. The attack happened during the night. He wakes up Sayid. Jin has gone missing.
Jin wakes up in an interrogation room. There are a bunch of loudspeakers/megaphones on the walls. It’s a sort of deprogramming room, or something like that. They are in Room 23, from the Dharma Initiative. She tasers him when he tries to leave. He’s on Hydra Island. She can’t let him leave. She wants information about the pockets of electro-magnetism on the island. He wants to talks with Widmore.
False-Locke plans on taking the outrigger to Hydra Island. False-Locke says that Kate’s name isn’t on the wall anymore. Once she gets three more people off the island with his team, Claire can do whatever he wants with Kate.
False-Locke and Sayid are going to the other island with some guns. False-Locke is greeted with sonic barriers and guns. He speaks with Widmore. Widmore knows that False-Locke isn’t Locke and tells him as much. False-Locke says that war is coming.
Richard says that they need to destroy the plane. Sun doesn’t want the plane destroyed. Hurley says that he doesn’t think that she wants to come with them.
Jack examines Sun. Sun can only speak Korean. She’s got a minor concussion. She’s might have aphasia. Richard appears with Hugo. He tells them to pack. They are leaving.
Widmore wants the package from the submarine taken out to the infirmary. He isn’t happy with the way that things are playing out. He hands Jin a camera. It’s Sun’s and it was found in the wreckage of the plane. There are photos of Sun with Jeon, Jin’s daughter. He’s never seen her before. She looks about 3. Widmore tells him that he plans on stopping the Monster from leaving the Island. He wants him to see the package. It’s …
Sun can still write English. Jack brings him one of the tomatoes that she planted a few years ago. She tells him that False-Locke told her that he had Jin. She doesn’t trust him. Jack tells him to come with them and he’ll find Jin.
False-Locke comes back alone. Sayid is still over there. Sayid is there to find out about the package. The package is Desmond of course. Sayid sees him getting out of the sub.
In the redacted timeline, Jin gets released but his money gets confiscated. Jin was supposed to deliver the watch with the money at a restaurant. He missed the meeting. Jin and Sun aren’t married yet. Jin still wants to go to the restaurant. Sun takes off some clothes and Jin decides to stay.
Keamy comes to see Sun. He wants his watch and money. Another man appears. Keamy said that he knows Sun’s father. They get a Russian to translate for them. Sun will have to get the money from the bank. It turns out that the bank was closed by her father.
My wife remembers a flash forward from a previous season where Jin got rescued from the restaurant by someone. Keamy tells him that the $25K was the fee to kill Jin. Paik found out that Jin was boinking Sun. Paik wasn’t happy when he found out.
Jin hears shots and bodies dropping to the floor. He bangs against the door. It’s Sayid. He gives Jin a knife. The Russian finds the bodies. Jin has got a gun on him. There is a fight and Jin has to shoot the Russian. Sun gets shot in the stomach. She tells him that she is preggers.
