The Other 48 Days

LostFlashback to the Island: The tail section of Flight 815 crashes on the island. Eko begins hauling survivors and bodies ashore. Ana Lucia helps resuscitate a child. Another survivor, Goodwin, runs onto the beach screaming for help – another survivor is still strapped to his seat, stuck in a tree. Ana Lucia helps talk Bernard out of the seat, after which he begins looking for his wife. Libby sets another survivor’s broken leg. Things calm down briefly. But that night, some of the survivors go missing from camp. Eko kills two men trying to take him away as well.

Eko withdraws into himself. More survivors are dragged away – including the two children. When one survivor, Nathan, disappears for two hours, Ana Lucia’s suspicions are raised. Eventually the group heads into jungle. Ana Lucia digs the pit and puts Nathan in. Four days pass; Nathan reveals nothing. When she tells Goodwin she plans to start cutting off Nathan’s fingers to get him to talk, Goodwin helps him out of the pit – and then breaks his neck. They set off again, and find the Dharma bunker and a radio. Ana Lucia and Goodwin try to climb higher to get a better signal, and Ana Lucia figures out that she suspected the wrong man all along. In their scuffle, Goodwin is killed. Things once again settle down somewhat, until Bernard hears a signal on the radio – Boone calling for help. Ana Lucia thinks it’s another plot to draw them out of hiding. When she finally gives herself a moment to break down, Eko breaks his silence to comfort her. Cindy and Libby find Jin washed up on the shore; Jin’s escape leads them to Michael and Sawyer, and eventually on their trek to find the survivors from the front of the plane – a meeting with tragic results.
