Lost Season 6 Episode 6 “Everyone Pays the Price”
Scene 1 Narrator says previously on Lost. We see Claire’s dream where Locke tells her that everyone pays the price now. Miles and Sawyer talk about Claire leaving. We see Sawyer screaming for Claire holding Aaron. We next see Claire telling Kate not to bring Aaron back to the island. Next we see Kate talking to Claire’s mother telling her that she is going back to the island to find her daughter. The next thing we see is John Locke talking to Christian and seeing Claire in the cabin. Christian tells John that he better not mention that he saw her. We hear the scene cut sound and the screen goes black. We see Sawyer, Miles and Claire asleep by the fire. Christian is holding Aaron. Claire wakes up. She begins to panic as she notices Aaron is gone. Christian looks at her as she notices he is standing there holding his grandchild. Claire: (surprised) Dad? Christian: He sure is a beautiful boy Claire. Claire: What are you doing here dad? Christian: I came to get you. And see my grandson one last time. (he looks at Claire) You don’t belong with them anymore Claire. Claire: (confused) What are you… Christian: You saw Charlie, and myself because you never survived the explosion. Claire: What?
Christian: Your dead, Claire. Claire: I can’t be dead. I have to take care of Aaron. Christian: I’m afraid you’re going to have to leave him behind kiddo. Claire: Why? Christian: You have a greater work to do. (he points towards the jungle) Follow me Claire. Claire gets up and starts to follow her Father. We hear the Whooshing sound and the scene changes to Aaron and Charlie Hume playing on the beach together. They are building a sandcastle. Desmond, Ms. Littleton, and Penny are talking about the statue of the foot and why no one there. Desmond: This is where he told me to go. He said we needed to be here. Penny: Desmond, there is no one here luv. Why did we come? Desmond: I was told to come here by Daniel Farraday. He told me I had to choose. Ms. Littleton: Choose what? Ilana: To choose between good and evil. Desmond: (startled) Who the bloody hell are you? Ilana: Relax, I am your friend. (She looks at the children and grows concerned) You brought them here? Desmond: That’s my son and where ever I go, he goes.
Ilana: Is he the one with the curly hair? Desmond: Aye, what’s it to you? Ilana: Who is the other boy? Ms. Littleton: He‘s my grandson. Ilana: (grows even more concerned) Is your daughter named Claire? Ms. Littleton: (anxiously) Yes, do you know where she is? Ilana: Bram, come out now! Bram: (comes out of the statue and points a gun at Aaron) Are you sure about this? Ilana: If you don’t, you know what Esau will make him become. You know what he will do to us all. (She looks back at Ms. Littleton) Why did you bring him here? Do you have any idea what this boy will become? Ms. Littleton: What are you talking about? Ilana: This boy is responsible for the end of us all. (pointing to Bram) Do it! Bram: Okay. Desmond: What the bloody hell are you doing?!!! We hear a gun fire, the infamous horn music and the cut screen sound and the screen goes black. We see LOST move across the screen.
Scene 2 We see blurriness and hear a muffled voice. The blurriness and muffled voice become clearer and we see Ilana standing over someone looking asking if they are okay. Ilana: Are you okay? (no response) Hey, can you hear me? Camera moves back and forth as if to give you an eyes view of whoever the person might be. We hear a familiar voice. Claire: Who are you? Ilana: My name is Ilana. (camera moves out to show Claire lying in the sand) Don’t worry, you are among friends. (Claire looks puzzled and a little distressed) What is your name? Claire: I’m…Claire. (looking at her new surroundings and wondering where she is) What am I doing here? Ilana: I am not sure. We found you lying out here just a few minutes ago. Claire: This is wrong. I am not supposed to be here. Where is my father? Ilana: Just relax, Claire. (turning her head back) Bram, bring me some water. Bram: (approaches with water) Here. Ilana: Thanks. (hands the canteen to Claire) Here, drink some water. Claire: I can’t. I’m not supposed to. Ilana: Claire you’re delirious, please drink some water.
Claire: (gets up and starts to panic) GET AWAY FROM ME, ALL OF YOU!! DAD?!! Ilana: Claire, please. We are not going to hurt you. (motioning again to the canteen) Please drink some water. Claire: I can’t. (she walks over to Ilana) I was told that I couldn’t. Ilana: (shocked) What? Claire: I was killed in an explosion. My father told me that I was dead. Ilana: Who is your father? Claire: Christian…Christian Shephard. Ilana: Bram, come here. Claire: What are you going to do? Ilana: Christian came to us after Jacob was killed. He said someone was coming, someone important. Claire: Me? Bram: Claire, where is Aaron? Claire: He isn’t on the island anymore. Kate took him back. Ilana: Kate is back on the island. Claire: (horrified) I told her not to bring him back.
Ilana: She didn’t. Look Claire, I need to know if you told Kate why he cannot come back. Claire: No, I just told her not to bring him back. Ilana: Bram, she didn’t tell her. Claire: What? Ilana: Do you know who Esau is? Claire looks at Ilana with a puzzled look on her face as we hear the whooshing sound and the scene changes. We see Christian and Jacob talking again in the orchid next to the donkey wheel. Christian: It worked, Jacob. Jacob: (looking at Christian) And why would you say that? Christian: Because my daughter Claire is gone. She was here with me and then she vanished. Jacob: (smiles) Nothing is for sure Christian. You know better than to assume everything is set in stone. Christian: Maybe so, Jacob. But she is gone and you know what that means. Jacob: And what does that mean? Christian: Aaron will come and the war will begin. Jacob: No, not yet. Jack has to bring Walt back. Then the war will start. Christian: My son, will he really become everything you have said?
Jacob: Only if Aaron never gets killed. Christian: Good thing Kate never brought him back. Jacob: Kate didn’t, but Desmond will. Christian looks at Jacob with a shocked look and shakes his head. Christian: Well, I guess that will make this war very interesting then won’t it Jacob? Jacob: Who are you playing for Christian? Christian: (laughs) As if I would tell you. I do as I see fit, Jacob. You and your buddy have some real (sighs) issues. It seems fit to have someone in between. Jacob: This war, is no laughing matter. Christian, you need to choose a side. Christian just smiles at Jacob. We hear the scene cutting sound and the screen goes black.
Scene 3 We see Claire walking in the woods with her father. They are walking towards a light. It is the cabin. Claire stops. Claire: What is this place? Christian: This (pointing at the cabin) is the place where a very important man lives. He is a man of great power that will help you understand everything. Claire: Who is this man? Christian: His name is Jacob. Claire: Why have you brought me here? And how is my coming her going to save my son? Christian: I will let Jacob explain. Claire: Dad, tell me. I won’t go in unless you tell me. Christian: (smiles) You are going to do something very important Claire. Jacob is going to tell you everything. Now please come inside. (goes to open the cabin door) Claire: Wait! (Christian turns around) You said that my son will die if I didn’t come with you. Now I want to know how you know so much and why you brought me here. Christian: (turns and points to the cabin) Inside this cabin is the only man on this island that knows the purpose for you and your son. He is a great man Claire. Please (beacons her to come) come inside and Jacob will explain everything.
Claire reluctantly follows her father and they enter the cabin. Sitting in a rocking chair is a man who appears to be dressed in dark clothing. The cabin is too dark to see him. Christian lights one of the oil lanterns. It shines on the man in the rocking chair. We see that it is not Jacob but Esau. Esau: Hello Claire. Welcome to my humble home. Please sit down. (Claire sits down and looks at what she thinks is Jacob) I have a great work for you Claire. But the first thing I need you to do is sit in this room with your father and help convince John Locke to move the island. Then after your friends have left this island, I need you to go see Kate and tell her to never bring Aaron back to this island. Then after that I will give you further instructions. Claire: Am I really dead? Esau: Yes Claire, you are. Claire: How can I… Esau: Don’t worry about that, just help your father convince John Locke to move the island. Claire: What about my son, Aaron. Will he die? Esau: It is imperative that he is to never return to this island or a man by the name of Esau will kill him. Claire: I will do everything you say as long as you promise me that my son will be safe. Esau: Alright, fair enough. I promise that your son will be protected as long as he never returns to this island.
We hear the whooshing sound and the scene changes to a man asleep In a dark bedroom. We hear him moaning a little and then wake up by taking a deep breath. He quickly gets up and goes into the bathroom. The camera only shows the man from the back so we cannot see him. He switches on the light and turns the faucet on the sink. He gathers water in his hands and wipes his face off. We finally see who the man is. It is Richard Malkin from the first and second season. He looks scared and frightened by whatever dream he just had. Richard Malkin: Claire, why did you follow him. (he begins to cry) Why, why, why? (he slowly breaks down during the why’s and falls to the floor) We’re all dead. We’re all going to die. We hear the infamous cut scene sound and the screen goes black.
Scene 4 We are back at the statue of the foot. We see Ilana and Bram still talking with Claire. Ilana: Claire do you know who Esau is? Claire: A man named Jacob once told me about this man Esau. He said that Esau would kill my son. Ilana: (panicked) Bram, did you hear that? Bram: Claire, was this man dressed in white or dark clothes. Claire: He was in dark clothes. Ilana: Claire, I need you to tell me exactly what he said and told you. Claire: He told me that I needed to convince John Locke to move the island. Then he told me to tell Kate to never bring Aaron back to the island. Ilana: Well, Claire, the man that told you these things was Esau. Claire: (looks down and then back up at Ilana) How do you know? Ilana: Good and Evil Claire. Jacob always wears white clothes, Esau always wears dark clothes. The man you were manipulated by was the very man who will not kill your son, but turn him into pure evil. Claire: What are you talking about? Bram: The end of the human race.
Ilana: Bram, let’s not confuse her. Claire: How is my son going to end the human race. Ilana: The same way Esau almost did over 10,000 years ago. With the help of Jack and your friends we stopped him from doing what your son will be destined to do. Claire: Are you saying that my son is… Bram: What she’s saying is that your son with the help of Esau will end the existence of mankind if we don’t stop him. Claire looks horrified at what Ilana and Bram have said to her. We hear the whooshing sound and the scene changes. We now see a crazed Richard Malkin running in Sydney Airport. He is running and bumping into people. He causes quite a stir that a security guard starts to follow him. Richard heads down towards the final gates of the terminal he is in. He looks and sees an airplane boarding at gate 32. The security guard stops him. Security Guard: Sir, can I help you with something? Richard Malkin: No, I just need to be on this flight, thank you. Security Guard: You do realize that you could have hurt someone by running like a madman through the terminal? Richard Malkin: Can I go, because me getting on that airplane is extremely important. I have to be in LAX by tomorrow afternoon.
Security Guard: Be more mindful of the people around you sir, or next time I promise you, I will take you in for disturbing the peace of this airport. The security guard walks away and Richard Malkin walks over to the gate. He hands the check in lady his ticket. We see him enter the jet way. He walks half way and pauses for a brief moment. He sighs deeply and walks the rest of the jet way and gets on the plane. He calmly walks down the aisle to his seat, 21a. He sits down in his seat and fastens his safety belt. He takes his hands and covers his face. He removes them and exhales deeply. He looks out the window and then looks at the back of the seat in front of him. We hear him softly say words we have heard before by John Locke. Richard Malkin: Now everyone suffers. He closes his eyes and lays his head against the side of the plane. We hear the whooshing sound and the scene changes. We see Claire and Christian in the cabin with John Locke. We hear John Locke say the line we have heard him say before in season 4. John Locke: How do I save the island? Christian: (Claire smiles at her father and he smiles back) You John are going to have to move the island. John Locke: How do I do that? Christian: Ben knows all about it, John. John Locke: How does the island move?
Christian: John, I know you want to know more but you will never make it in time if you don’t leave now. There will be time enough to learn the things you want to know later. Claire: Good luck, John. Please remember, don’t tell anyone you saw me, okay? John Locke: Okay. Christian: (John walks out the door) Well kiddo, the loophole begins. Claire: (smiles at her dad) Will John die? Christian: He has to. And he will. Claire: Good. We hear the infamous horn music and the scene ending sound and the screen goes black.
Scene 5 We see a crowded airport and a frantic Richard Malkin running through the terminal to find someone. We see a close up of his face. He looks panicked as he looks to his left and right. He begins to run again. We see this happen two more times and then he stops near a coffee shop. He looks over and opens his mouth and gasps as if he has found what he was looking for. Richard Malkin: It’s him. I can’t believe it. He walks over to the coffee shop and sits down at a table. We can see that he is staring at someone. He finally gets up and walks over to a man sitting at a table by himself. The man has his back turned to the camera so we cannot see him. He taps the man on the shoulder. Richard Malkin: Excuse me. (the man calmly turns around. It is Jack Shephard) Are you Jack? Jack: Can I help you? Richard Malkin: I’m sorry, you don’t know me, but I have traveled a very long way to give you an important message. Jack: Have a seat. (Richard sits down) I was supposed to meet someone here so I am guessing you must be him. Richard Malkin: Jack, your sister, Claire, she is being used to kill us all. Jack: Is that so. And just how would you know this…
Richard: Richard, my name is Richard Malkin. I know because Jacob came to me in a dream. He told me we are all going to die unless you get back to the island. You have to allow Bram to kill Aaron. Jack: (takes a sip of his coffee) Listen Richard. I don’t know this Bram you’re speaking about. But Jacob, he told me I have to do something before I go back. I am supposed to tell you that every vision you have seen is been a manipulation of a man named Esau. This man has every intention of killing us all. Richard Malkin: I know that because Jacob told me the same thing Jack. But he also told me to tell you that if you don’t return, Aaron is going to die. You have to let this happen. Jack: And why would I let Aaron die? Richard Malkin: Because if he doesn’t die, every single one of us will. Jack looks at Richard Malkin in shock as we hear the Whooshing sound and the scene changes. We see Ilana talking to Desmond again. Ilana: Relax, I am your friend. (She looks at the children and grows concerned) You brought them here? Desmond: That’s my son and where ever I go, he goes. Ilana: Who is the other boy? Ms. Littleton: He‘s my grandson. Ilana: (grows even more concerned) Is your daughter named Claire?
Ms. Littleton: (anxiously) Yes, do you know where she is? Ilana: Bram, come out now! Bram: (comes out of the statue and points a gun at Aaron) Are you sure about this? Ilana: If you don’t, you know what Esau will make him become. You know what he will do to us all. (She looks back at Ms. Littleton) Why did you bring him here? Do you have any idea what this boy will become? Ms. Littleton: What are you talking about? Ilana: This boy is responsible for the end of us all. (pointing to Bram) Do it! Bram: Okay. Desmond: What the bloody hell are you doing?!!! We hear a gun fire, and see Bram slowly fall to the ground and lie dead. Standing directly behind him is Benjamin Linus. Standing at his side is Esau. Ilana attempts to grab her gun but is shot by Ben. She falls to the ground. Aaron and Charlie Hume begin to cry and scream at the commotion. Ben doesn’t even hesitate at shooting Ms. Littleton and she falls to the ground. Aaron: Grandma!!!! Penny: Come here Aaron, Charlie. Stay by me. (She grabs the two kids and holds them. She then sees something that horrifies her) Desmond!!
Ben: (points the gun at Desmond) I never thought I’d see you again. I actually have the chance to apologize for our last encounter. Desmond: (shocked and enraged) WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU DOING, BROTHA? Ben: This is simple, you hand over Aaron and no one gets hurt. Desmond: (enraged) YOU ARE BLOODY HELL NOT TAKING ANY ONE!! (rushes toward Ben) YOU BASTARD!!! Ben: (fires at Desmond as a warning) Stop!! (Desmond stops and looks at Ben in extreme anger) If you do not give me Aaron right now, I will shoot your wife. Penny: (Looking at Desmond and letting the children go) Don’t do it Desmond. (Crying uncontrollably) If you have to, you sacrifice me and Charlie. Desmond: NO!! I can’t Pen. Esau: Enough, Ben kill her and their son. Desmond: Wait!! Ben: Goodbye Penelope. (Gun fires, but to our surprise Ben spurts out blood from his mouth and falls to the floor. He looks up to Richard Alpert standing over him. Esau looks on in shock) Rich..ard? Richard Alpert: Goodbye Benjamin. (We see him pull the trigger and the gun fires) Good riddance. (He turns to Esau) Now as for you, Esau, you are going to walk away and leave Aaron alone.
Esau: Am I? (laughs) Just because you are immortal Richard doesn’t mean you can just tell me what to do. I am taking Aaron with me and no one is going to stop me. We hear a familiar voice come out of nowhere. Jacob: I wouldn’t be so sure about that. (Esau turns around to see Jacob) You are not going to take him. Instead you will leave, now. If not I will end this right now Esau. Esau: (shocked to see Jacob alive) No, I killed you. You were dead. I KILLED YOU!!!! Older Jack: No you didn’t. (everyone turns to focus their attention on Older Jack who is still in his white robe with long white hair and a beard) I am the one you killed. We hear the infamous horn music and the screen goes to black. We see LOST and then the screen goes black.
