ABC (ended 2010)




  • Season 5 Episode 17: The Incident (2)

  • Numbers:
    -During the surgery, Jack stars counts to 5, but stops at 4.
    -Radzinsky spent 8 years working on the design of the Swan Station.
    -"AA 823" is shown on the bottom left corner of the crate Ilana's group was carrying.
    -It took Juliet 8 hits to set off the bomb.

  • Juliet detonates the bomb with a "black rock."

  • Goof: During the end gun fight after everyone puts down their guns there is a shot of Kate getting out of the DHARMA van with Miles in the foreground. You can see that Miles is still firing his rifle, however no post production effects (rifle flare and gunshot SFX) are present. This shot was obviously originally intended to be used as part of the battle but instead was used after it had ended.

  • For the second season finale in a row, Ben stabs someone to death. The first was Keamy in "There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3".

  • In Jack's flashback, we saw him cut a girl's sac and his father orders him to count to five to stop his fear. This is the story Jack told Kate back in the "Pilot."

  • Patsy Cline's music is heard in the convenience store. The music of Patsy Cline appears in every single one of Kate's flashbacks

  • Black and white:
    -Locke's face is half shadowed in various parts of the episode.
    -When Jacob is talking to Ben, half his face is shadowed.
    -The show's title, typically white lettering on black, is inverted at the end of the episode.

  • The camera movement that reveals Locke's body in the crate is similar to the camera movement used to reveal Locke's body in the coffin at the end of season 4.

  • Illana and Jacob were talking in Russian.

  • This is the first time the show ends with a white background and the letters "LOST" in black, inverting the usual title and appearing in transition with the possible hydrogen bomb blast.

  • Juliet: Live together, and die alone.

    This is a reference to Jack's profound words in season one, and which the season two finale was based on. Jack gave an ultimatum that if they didn't live together, they would die alone; but Juliet changed the words slightly.

  • During the final scene the blood around Juliet's mouth and face keeps disappearing and reappearing.

  • The straps on Jack's surgical mask appear both above and below his ears in different shots during the surgery scene.

  • This episode continues the tradition of having a significant plot device of the season be blown up in the season finale:
    * Season 1, the Hatch
    * Season 2, the Swan Station
    * Season 3, the Looking Glass (and the Others)
    * Season 4, the Kahana
    * Season 5, the Swan Station again (and consequently Jughead)

  • Richard's answer "Ille qui nos omnes servabit" is in latin. It means "He who will protect/save us all".

  • Season 5 Episode 16: The Incident (1)

  • The statue that Jacob lives under is of the Egyptian goddess Taweret (goddess of birth, rebirth and the northern sky).

  • Black and white:
    -At the beginning of the episode, Jacob wears a white shirt with black pants, and his nemesis wears a black shirt with white pants.
    -Sun's wedding dress is white and Jin's tuxedo is black.
    -The book Jacob reads when Locke falls down the building has a white dove being struck with a black arrow.
    -Locke's face is half shadowed in various parts of the episode.

  • Bram refered to Frank as "Yahoo". Sawyer also did it to him in "There's No Place Like Home: Part 1", the previous season finale.

  • The New Kids on the Block lunchbox Jacob purchases for Kate and Tom is seen in season one episode "Born to Run" as their time capsule.

  • The wedding scene is the first and only scene in the season where Daniel Dae Kim and Yunjin Kim share a scene. This scene is also out of continuity with Sun and Jin's season 1 wedding flashback. In the wedding flashback from season 1 we see that their wedding was indoors while the season 5 flashback clearly shows that the wedding was held outside. Sun's wedding dress is also completely different in both flashbacks.
