Lost Episode 10: "Something Nice Back Home"

Lost Episode 10: "Something Nice Back Home"

So, I watched this week's Lost and turned off the TV and. . . immediately forgot what happened in the episode. Why? Because nothing really happened in the episode! I was so excited when Hurley brought out the note and read it to Jack because at least that was somewhat intriguing. Most of the other stuff was Jack stressing out and the Jack-Kate-Sawyer and Jack-Kate-Juliet love triangles which, in my opinion, is getting tiresome.

Anyone else slightly bored by this episode? I do have one interesting theory, however, which you can check out (spoilers ahead) if you


  • Here's my one theory for this episode, though I might be reaching a bit because I'm craving anything juicier than just some soap opera storylines and cryptic messages from dead Charlie: When Jack is looking at X-rays, I wondered if they were his own, and if Juliet did something to him during the operation. Yeah, I know, I know, unlikely. But I feel like we're trained at this point to look for conspiracies where there are none.
  • Again with an Alice in Wonderland reference (Jack is reading it to Aaron). Alice in Wonderland pops up in various ways in the show, and at least two of the Jack-centric episodes have been titled after the book ("White Rabbit," "Through the Looking Glass"). In this episode, the words he reads to Aaron seem significant: "Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle."
  • Jack always seems to have this smug, cocky, inflated sense of grandiosity. As he's reeling from pain on the island, he says "I've gotten us this far," (just you, Jack? Really?) and he later tells Kate that he "saved" her (which, admittedly, might be what happens in a future episode, but still).
  • I do like how Jack's beard has become an indicator of time and his emotional state in this season.
  • Sawyer has become so tender toward Claire lately. It's so sweet. I love that he tells Miles, "You got a restraining order. Twenty feet."
  • Yay for Rose and Bernard. I'm always happy to see them. I do wonder about what Rose points out: that the island is supposed to heal people, not make them sicker. But maybe that's some kind of indication that some people should stay on the island while others should leave?
  • Why is Sad Hurley so much sadder than anyone else being sad?
  • Finally! Hurley reads the message from Charlie. "You're not supposed to raise him, Jack. Charlie said someone's going to be visiting you, to. Soon."
  • That was really sweet of that pilot, Frank Lapidus to protect Claire, Sawyer, Miles and Aaron like that. As one of the few tense moments in the episode, I thought it was great.
  • All that moment of Jack proposing to Kate did for me was make me want to watch more of The Office. It's a beautiful diamond, though.
  • I knew something was up with that Charlotte, listening in on Sun and Jin's conversations. She's a shady one.
  • Anybody else kinda miss Ben in this episode?
  • So. . .Christian Shephard is everywhere.
  • I respect that Juliet admits the kiss to Kate. It's a noble thing for her to do, really. Makes me like her again.
  • It's so strange to see Kate and Jack chatting normally on couches in a house.
  • Sawyer chose to stay?
  • So instead of dying, Claire might simply disappear with Christian Shephard?

What are your thoughts on this episode? And does anyone else wonder if the guy in the previews (the "I've been dead for 12 years" guy) turns out to be Jacob?

This episode was NOT boring at all! I think the Jack/Kate relationship was huge, and a lot of things were brewing, I could just feel them. A pretty exciting episode to me.

Ahhh you are right! Good memory, Deehamza.

By the way, to whoever thought that the survivors are already dead, the creators of Lost have discredited this theory. You can read more about it at:

I miss Charlie :( He was one of my favorites. I'm pretty sure that Claire is going to die, but not just yet. She wouldn't just choose to stay on the island and let Kate adopt her baby Aaron. I'm also very glad to know that Sawyer does not die later, but chooses to stay, and it makes me wonder who else chooses to stay instead of going home. I'm going to guess that Locke won't go home as well. Also, I think Miles can see Claire's father only because he can see dead people and talk to them, or whatever. I'm so in love with Kate's style after the island. I remember the story of the girl who died and came back to life. It was in one of Ecko's flashbacks, and the girl was the daughter of the psychic.

Seeing that people are starting to come back from the dead again makes me hope we'll see our old friends again...Charlie, Boone, Ekco. Also, I really want to know what is going on with Michael on the boat! I mean, they pointed him out as a traitor and we haven't been back to the boat since...not fair!
kitten6500 kitten6500 9 years
Hmmm... I do remember the story of the girl falling into the well and being dead, but then she came back. Was that with Ecko? I thought it was with someone in Australia like Claire and her pyschic. Maybe the pyschic was the dad? But we have seen many dead people, that's for sure! I still don't know about Claire.. maybe she's going to die, maybe she's just off in the woods while they get rescued. It's all so weird because the pyschic put her on O815 knowing it would crash and either she (and the baby) would die or she'd be stranged on an island and have to raise him herself. She must raise the baby (and now she actually wants to), so how does he end up with Kate? I can't wait!!

Didn't we have an incident where someone did come back to life? I think it was a story involving (my memory is blurry here) Eko and the psychic? I could have sworn a little girl died and came back to this could be some sort of connection to that story.

@ raieven, the psychic told claire SHE must raise the baby, not the other way around.

Maybe Claire doesn't die (I can hope!), maybe her and Sawyer fall in love and when the opportunity arises she gives him to Kate because the old psychic guy told her she shouldn't raise him.

good point about the scar, carewcha. and now I think that they don't come back to life, I just think the island or Jacob can choose to take their form and have someone see them. Like Jack's Dad and Hemi in the earlier seasons, and now Charlie, Jack's Dad, and maybe Godspeed? They just leave it open for any dead person's image to be seen and heard (usually only by 1 other person), but that doesn't mean they all have to come back. Just a thought...

Did everyone miss the scar thing? If Jack had his appendix out on the island - where's his scar when he gets out of bed and wraps the towel around his waist in the 'flash forward'?! He would have a whopping scar there for years. But there's nothing. Things like that take Lost WAY above soap opera. When you think there's 'nothing' going on, that's when they're planting the most mind-blowing stuff.

Time travel. It's beyond obvious at this point for me.

I totally agree with omega about Kate. She really gets on my nerves. She is so incredibly irritating how she can't decide and then in this episode, why couldn't she have just been honest with him about Sawyer instead of doing her whole bit again with the drama and the crying, etc? Ugh! It did imply that Jack knows he is related to the baby though. Very interesting. I can't stand that red haired girl who came on the helicopter. She is such a witch!

I agree, this episode wasn't totally boring and uneventful, but I did miss some of the drama that we've gotten used to. I am also incredibly sick of the Jack/Kate/Sawyer triangle. I'm so over it! And frankly, Kate in general kind of gets on my nerves, lol I don't think that they're going to get rid of Claire quite yet, although I though it was interesting how someone else suggested that perhaps Claire didn't survive the house blast and she's just a manifestation. Anyway, I can't wait to see next weeks ep!

Yeah, I missed Ben too. I have a sort of affection for him at this point. He's just always interesting.

Yawn, this one was a real downer! The cheesy dialogue really had me cringing. I kept praying a meteor, or an alien or a leprachaun, or SOMETHING would come infuse the spooky LOST ruckus we know and love. Well, there's always next week.

Lets not forget Miles' backstory. He is something like a ghost whisperer, with paranormal psychic powers.

It couldn't be anyone who died on the island can come back to life because then Shannon would have lived and even Ben's father for that matter, but then Sawyer and Hurley found him dead as a twig in the VW bus. I LOVED the direction things were going with Sawyer and Claire. I knew he wanted to stay on the island, and that would have been so great if .... Anyway, something must happen to Claire because Kate has Aaron, and is calling him "her" son. :ponder:

i loved this episode!! the flash forwards were amazing.
kitten6500 kitten6500 9 years
So now I think anyone who is dead can come back to life. Godspeed or whatever his name is was dead for 12 years! Anyone- Pablo, Libby, Carl, anyone who has died and their body is on the island can come back to life, I think.

HOW MUCH I WAIT FOR MY LOST EPISODE EACH WEEK!!! Yesterday we had some information really interesting even if it looked like a episode just based on Jake/Kate. The second Jack went down the stair i just jumped and said KATE'S HOUSE!!!! I wonder if he knows Claire is his half sister. It's nice to see how Jack's depression started (yet I am sure there's more to come). Love Sawyer protecting Claire. Claire leaving the baby?? NO WAY! Kidnapped? AGAIN? They are teasing us with Claire, at every moment we are waiting for her to die but there may still much more to develop... Ok Miles and Jack's father creep me out. So strange. Funny how I missed that Ben but not just him, everyone! Desmond, Sayid, Michaeal and Hurley!! Yeah to Jin!!! It is sad how some of the characters as Jin, Sawyer, Hurley do not play an important role right now (but in the flashfoward Hurley does.) Oh I agree with you Demeterbb! I was thinking the same! Can't wait for next week!

last night blew my theory that rousseau wasn't dead. i don't really know why but i always found her intriguing, and i thought i read somewhere she still had a flashback episode coming up. oh well. i'm with you all, i'm tired of the jack-kate love thingie. move on writers! and i'm really anxious to know what happens with claire, she's one of my favs!!! all i wanna say is if the show ends by saying that everyone is really dead i'm gonna be sooooo angry. such a cop out.

I liked it. Watching the end literally made me whimper. Christian! I wonder if Miles is the only other person that can see him.

Did any one else crack up when Kate said that she did not want Jack around "her" son? Thank you Jake for reminding her!

Jack & kate are annoying and a boring couple. When it was kate and sawyer things were more exciting and fun. I really hope sawyer doesnt die. Hes the only good thing left on the show. i just want him to be happy :)
