Talk About... LOST (4/23/07)

A new stranger on the island! Do you like that? I'm torn - do we really need constant new characters when we still don't know everything we need to know about the people who originally showed up on the beach? What do you think?

Originally Aired: April 25, 2007
After discovering that all of "The Others'" pregnant women died before giving birth on the island, an extremely reticent sun allows Juliet to examine her -- and uncovers the identity of the unborn child's father. Meanwhile, Desmond allows an unlikely nemesis to help save the life of a new, mysterious island inhabitant.


  1. Television Without Pity's Recap

    When Jack starts asking creepy pregnancy-related questions, Sun makes Kate tell her what the deal is with pregnant ladies on the Island. Kate tells her that Juliet was the Others' fertility doctor, but she isn't sure she's in the Losties' HMO preferred provider network. Sun clears the insurance red tape by charging over to Juliet and demanding answers. Being an Other, Juliet refuses to tell her anything until she can sneak into her tent in the middle of the night and drag her out into the jungle. Turns out Juliet is taking Sun to the medical hatch to give her an ultrasound in order to determine the date of conception. Turns out the baby was conceived on the Island, which is good for Jin and his magically-improved sperm count, but lousy for Sun, who may have only two months to live. Juliet leaves Sun outside to contemplate her imminent doom while she ducks back into the hatch to make a quick report to Ben. Damn those evil HMOs! Always plotting to steal babies!

    Meanwhile, Charlie, Desmond, Jin, and Hurley (Island Scout Troop 108) are out in the woods trying to save the downed pilot's life and finally earn their field medicine merit badges. The pilot was skewered by a branch during her emergency drop and is quickly dying. Luckily the flare that Hugo accidentally set off brings help. Unluckily the help arrives in the form of the recently dead. Zombies?! Here? No! Yes, Mikhail, a.k.a. Patch Adams, has risen from the grave and is responding to cries for help. He saves the pilot's life in exchange for everyone pretending he was never there. He makes it hard for them to pretend, though, when he tries to steal their satellite phone.

    To make matters even worse, once the pilot wakes up, she claims that there is no way the Losties are survivors of Flight 815. Because they found that plane and there were no survivors. Aw crap, is M. Night Shyamalan guest-directing this episode and no one told me?

  2. I think the most shocking thing about this episode was the implication that Kate is pregnant.

  3. I don't know about the Kate preggers thing, but DOC's ending nearly killed me. I mean seriously, "You can't be the survivors. They found the plane. Everyone was dead" - END. I had to scream at my TV just a little bit. It was a great episode. And Sun's toughness is pretty awesome. :D
