*This part of the chapter had one task, but I created more. Therefore, I won’t even say what the task was.*
Today we begin Part 1 of the LOST Season 2 finale. This chapter will focus on the hatch.
We begin on the beach. After the funeral for both Ana Lucia and Libby, one of the survivors sees a boat drifting off shore. Jack, Sawyer, and Sayid go investigate the boat and find Desmond on board. He comes to their camp and tells them how he could not escape the island and compares their situation to living in a snowglobe, no outside world, and no escape. When a faithless Locke finds Desmond he talks to him about the hatch and what he learned about it from the Pearl video. He convinces Desmond to help him remove Eko from the hatch to keep him from pressing the button. The next morning, the Operation Don’t-Press-The-Button begins.
While Locke and Desmond wait for the clock to reach zero, Eko attempts to blow open one of the doors with dynamite. He fails and the blast knocks him out. Locke and Desmond talk for a while, and Desmond eventually asks about the Pearl video that Locke saw. He wonders if Locke was confused and if the hatch really is important. He wants to see the video but can’t watch it down in the Swan. Locke does give him an access log though, it shows all of the times on record that the button was pushed. On the log, Desmond finds something disturbing, and we finally know the truth.
With only 4 minutes left on the countdown, Desmond tries to convince Locke that they need to push the button. Locke remains certain, though, that the button is a lie. Desmond tries to push the button, but Locke destroys the computer before he can do so. Fearing that Locke has just killed everyone, Desmond goes to Plan B.
The Swan is gone.
