The scene opens the way many, including Jack Shepherd, thought it would; aboard Oceanic 815 with all of the characters we have come to know, love and hate, sitting there together on the plane that stranded them all on a mysterious island.
And then, something different.
There's Desmond Hume, sitting next to Jack. Even more unexpected is the follow-up shot as the camera dives into the ocean and in an amazingly shoddy display of television fx shows us something intriguing; the island is underwater. Dharmaville, the four-toed statue, the beach; everything, has gone the way of Atlantis. Welcome to another wonderfully wacky season of Lost.
