Righters Untie! Season 5 Writing Contest was scriptwriting contest started by Dan Hoger. It was developed in light of the Lost hiatus between Season 4 and Season 5. It was inspired by the Lostpedia Season Four Writing Contest.

Lostpedia decided against doing a season 5 contest [source needed]. However, users who wished for a second contest started it up on the Righters Untie! website. It began after the airing of "There's No Place Like Home, Part 2" .

Centric characters for each episode are decided by user votes. Centric characters for the premiere and finale episodes are guaranteed to be author's choice. On occasion, episodes include a writer's challenge - a storytelling objective of some sort that every writer must incorporate into their scripts. A create-a-character contest was also held to determine a new major character for season five.

A sub-contest was held alongside Episode 3. The premise was to create a "casting call" for a new recurring character to be introduced in the next episode. Out of the 20 characters submitted, the top three (decided by popular vote) were Kenneth Montand Birch (played by Powers Boothe), Elena Santos (played by Mia Maestro), and Elena Jameson (played by Alexa Davalos). Kenneth Birch became the official character after Escape from Ogygia won.

As revealed in the contest, Kenneth Montand Birch is an associate of Charles Widmore and also pretended to work for Benjamin Linus. He is one of the few people who can speak to Jacob. He ran the Tampa Job involving Hibbs, Sawyer and Leon Bergson. He is a cold-blooded killer and the only person he seems to have cared for is his sister Jillian. Ben killed Jillian and tried to frame Widmore for the murder in order to get Birch to join him. Instead, Birch pretended to join Ben, while waiting for his chance to avenge Jillian. During this time, he abducted Aaron from Kate and delivered the child to Widmore. He also arranged an auto accident to convince Sayid to briefly join Widmore so Sayid could meet Jacob, abduct Aaron back and then orchestrate the return of the Oceanic Six to the Island. Finally, Birch employed the enforcer watching Hurley, who had a special red cube on his person until Sayid killed him.

Escape from Ogygia

Escape from Ogygia is the fourth episode of the Righters Untie! Season Five Writing Contest and was selected as the winning script on July 31, 2008.

But Desmond will no longer be a coward confined to an island, so he makes a deal with Widmore to kill Ben, and leaves Penny behind. In flashbacks, Desmond and Kelvin Inman confront the Monster in the Swan.
