Episode 069: December 12-15, 2004 (Days 82 to 85)

Jack, Kate, Sayid and Juliet head back towards the beach, although Sayid remains suspicious of Juliet even though the Others left her behind.  At the beach, Claire's implant has been activated, and she's starting to show signs of not feeling well.  Jack returns with everyone, and we have our happy montage moment on the beach.  Claire falls ill, and Juliet claims that it's because she's no longer being treated by Ethan, and that she can help her.  She goes and gets medical supplies, and helps Claire get better.  Desmond has another flash, and this time he sees Penny in his vision, only he also sees Charlie die after taking an arrow to the throat.  He takes Hurley, Charlie, and Jin, and heads out to help the vision come true.  They head down the beach until they find the cable that leads into the ocean.  They make camp and wait for the next part to come true, which it does when a helicopter appears and someone jumps from it and lands in the jungle somewhere, but the helicopter crashes in the ocean.  Desmond continues to push the issue of doing what he saw in his vision, but Charlie's getting a little suspicious of his activities.  They reach the part in the jungle where Charlie gets shot with the arrow, but at the last second he dives and saves Charlie's life instead.  They reach the parachutist, who is stuck hanging from a tree.  As the episode closes, Desmond climbs the tree to chop her down, believing it to be Penny, but when they take her helmet off, they discover that it instead is Naomi.  The episode runs 51:31 and is 427MB to download.  You can stream the episode below (via Facebook), or go here to use torrents (better quality, recommended) to download the episodes to your computer.

  1. I’m noticing some places where there are mini flashbacks (for the audience) that I think should be removed, like when Juliette is describing the serum and Ethan administering it.

    1. Yeah, I get what you're saying. If there was a clean way to do it I get that would make the most sense, but those are such rapid cuts, I mean, all those flashbacks are what, four seconds total? I wouldn't have a good way to extract them without it looking messy, and they're such minor quick shots the most cohesive thing is to just leave them there while Juliet rehashes what happened.

    2. Wow fast reply! I wasn’t even sure if you’d still check in on this haha. Yeah I get that, I think I more wanted to call it out as a consistency thing, because I think in some earlier episodes you’ve like dipped the video in and out for scenes like that before to kinda trim out the flashbacks. Thanks for all your hard work here, I continue to enjoy it!
