"Monster Eats the Pilot" was presumably inspired by the events following the crash of Oceanic Flight 815. On Day 2 on the Island, Charlie Pace was joined by fellow Oceanic Flight 815 survivors Jack Shephard and Kate Austen in a trek into the jungle in an attempt to locate the cockpit and transceiver of Oceanic Flight 815.
After discovering the cockpit wreckage and severely injured pilot, Seth Norris, Charlie, Jack and Kate experienced their first encounter with The Monster. During this encounter, The Monster brutally attacked and killed Seth Norris.
The opening riffs use Lost's main theme.
