Previously on Lost: Sawyer, Juliet, Miles and Jin set up shop as members of the DHARMA Initiative in the 1970s for three whole years before Jack, Kate and Hurley suddenly popped in out of the sky from the future.  Lapidus landed Ajira 316 on the Island in the present along with an injured Ben, a living John Locke and a new crop of castaways.  God only knows where (or when) Faraday, Sun, Sayid, Rose and Bernard are.

There is no “Previously on Lost,” instead we’re back on Ajira 316. The plane undergoes some turbulence and Lapidus isn’t happy with what he knows is about to happen. Things get rough and there’s a giant flash of white light.

Once the light is gone, we’re still on the plane with Lapidus, only it’s magically gone from night to day and he’s about to crash into the Island. Lapidus does some fancy flying and manages to land the plane on the “runway” on the secondary island. The crash knocks him out, and when he comes to, his co-pilot is dead.

Lapidus heads to the back and sees that, for some reason, Sun is the only one of the Oceanic 6 still aboard. Ben says they’re gone, and when Lapidus asks how, the response is, “How would I know?” Oh Ben, always with the lies.

But we know where they are, and it’s 30 years earlier. We see Sawyer reconnecting with Jack, Hurley and Kate, and everything’s happy until he tries to explain why he’s in a DHARMA jumpsuit. “It’s 1977,” he tells them.

“Uh, what?” replies Hurley. Thank you for speaking for everyone watching at home, Hugo.

Sawyer tries to hatch a plan to bring them in, but as soon as Jin hears that Sun was on the plane, he speeds off to the Flame to check with Radzinsky. Here’s a quick reminder for any Lost fans who don’t remember all the mythology: the Flame is the communications center on a farm where Locke and others met Mikhail. Radzinsky was Kelvin Joe Inman’s partner in the Swan Station before killing himself.
