Excerpt 5.1 Because You LeftOriginal air date: January 21, 2009 Written by: Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse Directed by: Stephen Williams Guest cast:Tom Irwin (Dan Norton), William Mapother (Ethan Rom), Sean Whalen (Neil “Frogurt”), Brad Berryhill (Anxious Guy), Chantal Boom’la (Counter Girl), Michael Dempsey (Foreman), Leslie Ishii (Woman), Sven Lindstrom (Crew Member), Cindy Paliracio (Reporter/TV Anchor), Stefanie Smart (Ticket Agent)Focus: Everyone It’s been three years since the Oceanic 6 were rescued, and Ben and Jack are trying to figure out how to round up the others to return to the island. Sayid has helped Hurley escape the hospital, Kate is faced with lawyers demanding something she won’t give them, and Sun is stuck at an airport with another key player in the island mystery. Meanwhile, three years earlier on the island, a record is skipping, tossing the survivors from one time period to another.A woman we don’t know shakes a man awake and tells him to tend to the baby we hear crying in the background. He puts on a record from a few decades ago and gets the baby ready for the day before heading to work. We realize he’s the man from the orientation videos, the time period probably some point in the ’70s. Suddenly he’s rushed from his tranquil day to an emergency at some construction site. As he yells at one of the workers about the intricacies of time travel, he bumps into . . . Daniel Faraday, looking the same in the ’70s as he did in 2004. It’s a jarring opening that is completely baffling.Welcome to another season of Lost.We left our favorite castaways in precarious positions at the end of season 4. The island had disappeared when Ben turned the Frozen Donkey Wheel. Dan and a bunch of redshirts were in a Zodiac boat in the water when it happened, and the Oceanic 6, plus Frank and Desmond, were in a helicopter. The latter group saw the island disappear, but we didn’t know what would become of the people on, or near, the island. Through flashforwards we knew the Oceanic 6 would get home, go through their own trials and tribulations — discovering parenthood,becoming assassins, having birthday parties, growing terrible beards — and wherever they went, the island would follow them in one way or another. We also knew that in 2004 Locke was on the island, but by 2007 he was off the island. . . in a coffin.The Oceanic 6 have come a long way since their rescue . . . and not necessarily in a good way. They seem evenly split between those who want to return, and those who refuse to do so. At the end of season 4, Sayid killed a man while breaking into the Santa Rosa Mental Institute, and Hurley’s first words to him were, “We’re not going back, are we?” as if that was the last thing he wanted to do. But the moment they were outside, in this episode, Hurley says, “We never should have left the island,” as if he’s suddenly realized the truth.On the island Hurley was tricked, his girlfriend was killed, he was pursued by Others, almost eaten by polar bears, and had, um, regularity issues, but at least he wasn’t cooped up in a mental hospital talking to dead people. All Hurley has ever wanted is peace. He won the lottery, and his friends abandoned him, his father used him, his...
