Season Three - Island Day 90

December 20, 2004


Previously on LOST

A woman named Naomi parachuted onto the island from a helicopter that crashed into the ocean. Her helicopter took off from a freighter 80 nautical miles west of the island. She has a satellite phone, which could contact the freighter, but the signal is being jammed.

The Losties are tipped off that Ben and the others are planning to kidnap three pregnant women from the beach camp for fertility testing.

Juliet has joined the Losties at the beach camp. She tells the Losties that Ben is using the underwater Dharma station Looking Glass to jam signals from the island.

Background- Radio Tower Journey

The Losties plan on using Naomi’s satellite phone to contact her freighter for rescue. To do this they must not only disable the Looking Glass, but also turn off Rousseau’s distress signal at the radio tower.

Charlie and Desmond will use a Kayak to reach and disable the Looking Glass, while most of the group travel to the radio tower.

Rather than continue to try and hide from the Others, Jack’s plan is to rig three beach tents with explosives and kill the Others as they try to kidnap the three pregnant Losties. Sayid, Bernard, and Jin stay behind to detonate the explosives using guns.

Synopsis of Day 90

Karl, using a kayak to save time, leaves the ‘Others’ tent camp to warn the Losties that Ben’s schedule to invade the beach camp has changed and will happen with in hours rather then the next day.

Sayid, Bernard, and Jin stay at the beach to detonate the explosive laden tents, while Rousseau leads the rest of the Losties to the radio tower.

Charlie and Desmond use the kayak to locate the Looking Glass, which is tethered to the beach by the cable Sayid located earlier. Charlie knocks Desmond unconscious and enters the Looking Glass alone. Greta and Bonnie hold Charlie captive. Bonnie calls Ben, who sends Mikhail to the Looking Glass to kill Charlie, Greta, and Bonnie.

Ben’s men approach the tents and two of three tents explode, killing seven of the 10 men. The remaining three take Sayid, Bernard, and Jin captive. Bernard, under duress, tells Ben about Karl, Naomi, and the radio tower journey via walkie-talkie.
