Previously on Lost
: Faraday was killed by his own mother while trying to stop the Incident at the Swan Station and alter the course of history. In the future, Ben agreed to follow John Locke while Ilana and Bram were revealed to be working for...someone. Not Charles Widmore, and probably not Ben.Lost
is especially cruel this week as we are forced to rewatch Daniel
Faraday's death, this time through the eyes of Jack and Kate. After it
happens they try to run, but Charles Widmore rides up on his horse and
puts a severe beatdown on Jack. They're brought to the camp where
Ellie, haunted by killing her future son, has them put in her tent.
30 Years Later: Richard Alpert builds a ship in a bottle on the beach. Where did he get a ship in the bottle kit? He gets a visitor in the form of John Locke, leader of the Others, who brings a boar and tells Richard that they have an errand to run. It's hard to tell who Richard is more surprised to see: Locke of Ben.
Sun, who somehow has no idea who Richard is, learns that he's very, very old and immediately asks if he knows what happened to her husband and friends in 1977. Richard says he saw them and that he watched them all die. I smell something crazy brewing.
Locke, Richard and Ben go to run their errand. Locke doesn't reveal much other than to request a meeting with Jacob. Ben is skeptical, but Locke is the leader, They go to a plan and Locke tells Richard that he needs to go help a man who's been shot in the leg. The man who was shot is John Locke, and this is the prequel to the scene from the season premiere when Richard helped dig Ethan's bullet out of Locke's leg before giving him the compass.
While Richard helps Past Locke, Present Locke and Ben talk about how the Island tells Locke things and that Ben has never seen Jacob. Past Locke time jumps, confusing the Hell out of Ben, and Richard returns to discover that Locke really did die. In the words of Stephen Colbert, that's the craziest f***ing thing I've ever heard.
