LOST rocks! It is one of my favorite shows. Television without pity doesn't have last night's show yet. If you don't want to know what happpens don't read below.
Basically they did Claire's (pregnant) backstory. Her boyfriend knocks her up and sticks around just long enough for her to get big as a house and then bolts. Something about too much responsibility. Meanwhile she had gone to a psychic and he gets all freaked out doing her reading, refunds her money and tells her to get out. She goes back to the psychic and he agrees to do the reading. He tells her that if anyone else raises this child there will be great dangers. Claire freaks out this time and leaves. She decides to give up the child for adoption and goes through an agency. The whole while the psychic is calling her and telling her that she alone can raise the child. Last minute she changes her mind and shows up at the psychic’s house. He tells her there is a couple in L.A. that she must give the baby to.
Back on the island Claire is has a horrible nightmare and then is attacked (maybe might just be another nightmare). Jack, thinking she is imagining it all, tries to dope her up and she packs up and heads back to the beach. Charlie doting on her as usual follows. Meanwhile Hurley is taking a census to get a better idea of who might have attacked Claire. He makes a list of everyone at the caves and on the beach. Turns out Sawyer has the plane's manifest and actually gives it to Hurley when he asks. Sayid shows up limping in with a bad leg and tells everyone that they are not alone on the island. Hurley compares his list and the manifest and finds out that one person on his list wasn't on the plane. Turns out to be Ethan (minor character before) and he meets up with Charlie and Claire in the jungle. Just before the episode ends Claire and Charlie figure out that there was no couple in L.A. and the psychic knew about the crash the whole time and planned for her to be on the flight so she would have to raise the baby. Scenes from next week: Ethan takes Claire and Charlie, Jack runs after them.
