Lost Season 3 returns tonight, February 7 on ABC at 10/9c.
When we left our Lost friends three months ago, Jack was performing surgery on Ben with the promise that he would be returned home if the surgery was a success. Juliet had something else in mind though and secretly asked Jack to kill Ben and make it look like an accident.
Meanwhile, Pickett was about to execute Sawyer as revenge for the murder of his wife Colleen. At that moment Jack played his cards and took the unconscious Ben as hostage and threatened to kill him if The Others didn’t release Kate and Sawyer. Jack commanded The Others to give Kate a walkie-talkie and told her that she and Sawyer had an hour head start before The Others would come after them. Jack continued “If I don’t get a call from you within an hour I know something is wrong and he dies!”. A crying Kate replied “I can’t leave without you!”, and Jack screamed “Kate, damn it! Run!”.
That’s the story of the greatest mid-season cliffhanger ever. Tonight, the exciting story continues with the all new Lost Season 3 episode “Not in Portland”. This is the official description:
After Oceanic Air flight 815 tore apart in mid-air and crashed on a Pacific island, its survivors were forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive. But they discovered that the island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, a strange French woman and another group of island residents known as “The Others.” The survivors have also found signs of those who came to the island before them, including a 19th century sailing ship called The Black Rock, the remains of an ancient statue, as well as bunkers belonging to the Dharma Initiative — a group of scientific researchers who inhabited the island in the recent past.
The band of friends, family, enemies and strangers must continue to work together against the cruel weather and harsh terrain if they want to stay alive. But as they have discovered during their 70-plus days on the island, danger and mystery loom behind every corner, and those they thought could be trusted may turn against them. Even heroes have secrets.
In the return episode, “Not in Portland,” Jack is in command as the fate of Ben’s life literally rests in his hands. Meanwhile, Kate and Sawyer find an ally in one of “The Others,” and Juliet makes a shocking decision that could endanger her standing with her people.
