Lost Season 4
Within the first few minutes of Season 4, a major question was answered: besides Jack and Kate, there were 4 other people who got off the Island. One of those people was Hurley. Together, the people make up the Oceanic Six. As the season progressed,we would find out that Sayid and Sun also made it off the Island. Aaron also got off the Island, but Claire did not. Kate was raising Aaron after her criminal case was dismissed. Ben, too also made it off the Island. But how?
After making contact, the Survivors spilt into two camps. Half went with Locke to the barracks after recieving Charlie's message that the people on the boat were not who they said they were. The other half stayed with Jack in hopes of being rescued. For the remainder of the season, the groups would stay apart.
A group of people from the frieghter came to the Island. Daniel Faraday, a physicist who had memory problems. Charlotte Lewis, an athroplogist who discovered a Dharma polar bear in the desert. Miles, the ghost whisperer. And there was Frank Lapedius, who was supposed to be flying Oceanin Flight 815 the day it crashed. After seeing a staged wreckage of Flight 815, Frank believed that Oceanic is still out there.
They come to the Island and bring Desmond and Sayid back to the boat to check the place out. As they fly to the boat, Desmond starts traveling through time. It is in this episode that we are first introduced to time travel, and we learn that when traveling, you need a constant to protect yourself from tempral displacement, which can kill you. Desmond finds his constant, which is Penny. He lives.
There is also a spy on the boat working for Ben. It is revealed to be Michael, coming back to redeem himself by saving his friends. After leaving the Island, he becomes suicidal, and though he tries on numerous occasions to kill himself, he cannot. He is then recruited by Ben to come back on Widmore's boat to stop the boat from reaching the Island. It is also revealed that the Island won't let him die.
When Sayid finds out, he sees Michael as a traitor, and notifies Captian Gault. Michael is inprisoned, and can't stop the mercenaries on the boat from coming to the Island. They invade the barracks, killing Danielle and Carl, then taking Alex hostage in order to manipulate Ben. When Ben doesn't come out, Keamy, the guy in charge, shoots and kills Alex while Ben watches. Furious and sad, Ben summons the smoke monster, which attacks the mercenaries.
Sawyer, Miles, Claire and Aaron plan to go back to the beach, while Hurley goes with Ben and Locke to find Jacob's Cabin to get info on what to do. It is revealed the Horace Goodspeed actually had the cabin constructed. When they get to the cabin, Jacob is not there. Christian is there, as well as his daughter, Claire, who walked off in the middle of the night. Christian tells Locke he has to move the Island.
The mercenaries return to the Island after a shootout on the boat, which kills the captain. A bomb is placed on the ship, and if Keamy dies, a signal will be sent to the detanator and the bomb will go off. This happens as people are being ferried to the boat. Micheal works with Jin and Desomnd to ice the bomb and keep it from going off.
The Others work wit the survivors to free a captured Ben from Keamy, and in return are allowed to leave the Island. Kate, Jack, Hurley, and Sawyer leave, to Locke's protest. He tells Jack the must lie about everything that happened while they were there to protect those who were still on the Island. He then accompanies Ben to the Orchad, a Dharma station that can move things in space and time. After a confrontation with Keamy, Ben kills him, then procedes to go into an ice chamber to where there is a huge wheel that he turns to move the Island. Locke then is proclaimed the leader of the Others.
The helicopter carrying Jack, Hurley, Kate, and Aaron lands on the doomed frieghter after Sawyer jumps out to lighten the load of the chopper. Sun and Desmond get on the chopper. The helicopter takes off as Jin tries to get on, but can't. Just before the bomb goes off, Christian appears to Michael to tell him that he can go now. The bomb then explodes, killing him and Jin.
The chopper flies in the air as a bright light appears, and the Island moves. The chopper crashes in the ocean, and later, Penny's actaul boat finds them. Jack convinces everyone to lie about where they were.
When rescued, they say that Oceanic crashed in the ocean, and only 8 people survived. A current carried them to an Island where they lived. By the time a raft washed up on shore, there were only 6 people left. Kate passes Aaron off as her own.
Three years later, Hurley starts seeing dead people and is put in the nut house. After Sun has her baby, Ji-Yeon, she takes over her father's business and wants revenge against Ben. Sayid works for Ben after Nadia is killed, killing off Widmore's employees who are spying on the Oceanic Six. And Jack becomes suicidal.
Finally, it is revealed that in order to go back to the Island, everyone has to go together. And most importantly, they need to bring the man in the coffin.
John Locke is dead.
