A transcript is a retrospective written record of dialogue, and like a script (a prospective record) may include other scene information such as props or actions. In the case of a transcript of a film or television episode, ideally it is a verbatim record. Because closed-captioning is usually written separately, its text may have errors and does not necessarily reflect the true Canonical transcript.

Enhanced version of Season 5, Episode 16: The Incident, Parts 1 & 2-Enhanced

Produced by: Met|Hodder


Part 1, Act 1

This is Jacob.
He is in command of the island.
Jacob has been mentioned before
but never seen until now.
Jacob is weaving a tapestry
which features the Egyptian Eye of Horus.
The eye is surrounded by a sun disc
representing the sun god Aten
a symbol of life and prosperity.
This scene takes place on the island
over 140 years before the present day.
The ship in the distance
is an early 1800s wooden sailing ship.
This is the Man in Black
Jacob's nemesis.
Jacob and the Man in Black
have a long history between them.
The exact nature of their feud
has yet to be revealed.
The giant statue is a variation of Tawaret
the Egyptian godess
of protection, birth and fertility.

Part 1, Act 2

This is Kate when she was 10-years-old
and her friend, Tom.
Tom is holding the same toy airplane
that was once locked away in a bank vault
in the Season 1 episode
"Whatever the Case May Be."
This is Jacob, who has not aged
since his conversation with the Man in Black
over 100 years ago.
Jacob's touch is important.
Kate was one of the survivors
of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815.

This scene takes place in 1977.
Kate, Sawyer and Juliet
are onboard a DHARMA submarine
and being forcibly removed from the island.
They were all members
of the DHARMA Initiative.

This also takes place in 1977.
This is a hydrogen bomb called "Jughead"
left on the island by the U.S. Army in 1954
as seen in the Season 5 episode, "Jughead."
Jack believes that by detonating the core
he will prevent the crash of Oceanic Flight 815.
This is Richard Alpert, an advisor to the Others.
The woman is young Eloise Hawking.
She is Daniel Faraday's mother
and is now pregnant with baby Daniel Faraday.

This is the construction site
for the Swan DHARMA station.
This is Stuart Radzinsky
Head of Research for the DHARMA Initiative.
This is Dr. Pierre Chang
an astrophysicist for the DHARMA Initiative.
The DHARMA Initiative is building the station
to study the island's
unique electromagnetic properties.
Dr. Chang was warned by Faraday
that a terrible accident will occur
when they drill into a massive pocket
of electromagnetic energy.

This is present day on the island.
John Locke is leading the Others
to meet Jacob.
However, Locke's true agenda is to kill Jacob.
This is Sun.
She left the island with the Oceanic 6
but has returned to find her husband, Jin.
This is Benjamin Linus
the former leader of the Others.
Ben left the island and put Locke in charge.
Like Jacob, Richard Alpert
seemingly does not age.
Ben killed Locke in Los Angeles.
But when Locke's body
was returned to the island
he was somehow "resurrected."
Locke has behaved differently upon his return
and people are unsure if they can trust him.
Ajira Flight 316 landed on the Hydra island
which is a few miles off the main island.
About 20 people survived and await rescue.

This is Ilana, Bram and their team.
They are rowing from the Hydra island
to the main island to see Jacob.
The unconscious man is Frank Lapidus
the pilot of Ajira Flight 316.
Ilana asked Frank
"What lies in the shadow of the statue?"
Frank didn't know the correct answer
so he was knocked out
and brought on the boat.

Part 1, Act 3

This is 8-year-old Sawyer
at the time of the funeral
for his mother and father.
This is Jacob, again making a connection
with one of the Oceanic survivors.
Jacob's touch marks certain people
who eventually end up on the island.
Sawyer's father killed his mother
and then shot himself
as seen in the Season 1 episode, "Outlaws."
Sawyer's real name is James Ford.
He adopted the nickname of "Sawyer"
because that is the name of the con man
who swindled his family
and sent his father into a murderous rage.
Sawyer will carry his letter of revenge
with him everywhere, including the island.
He let Kate read the letter
in the Season 1 episode, "Confidence Man."
Sawyer finally confronted the real Sawyer
who turned out to be Locke's father.
Sawyer made the man read the letter
before he killed him
as seen in the Season 3 episode, "The Brig."

Hurley, Jin and Miles are still on the island.
This is Captain Bird, commander of the sub.
The name of the sub is Galaga.
Dr. Chang ordered an emergency evacuation
of all the women and children off the island.
Even though Juliet is threatening the captain
she is saving the lives of everyone onboard.
Horace Goodspeed is the leader
of the DHARMA Initiative on the island.

The hieroglyphs on the column
along with the statue of Taweret
indicate that many different civilizations
lived on the island over thousands of years.
Sayid is removing the cylinder
of plutonium core
from the housing of the hydrogen bomb.
Locke visited Richard Alpert in 1954
while the island was flashing through time.
Ironically, Jack's faith in Locke
is the reason Richard believes in Locke
when they meet 30 years in the future.
It's a decision that will prove to be disastrous.

Ben went to the smoke monster
to be judged for his past misdeeds
which included allowing his daughter
to be shot and killed by mercenaries.
His dead daughter appeared
and threatened to kill him
if he didn't do everything Locke told him to do.

Part 1, Act 4

The woman struck by the vehicle is Nadia
the love of Sayid's life.
Sayid was reunited with Nadia
after he spent years searching for her.
The person who hit Nadia is Ishmael Bakir.
Sayid later killed him in revenge
as seen in the Season 4 episode
"The Shape of Things to Come."

In 1954, the Others secured the bomb
underground to prevent radiation leaks.
But when the DHARMA Initiative arrived
they built their entire barracks
over the underground tunnel system.
During this time period
Eloise is the leader of the Others.

The DHARMA Initiative is on alert
because they fear the Others
are going to attack
and cause an accident at the Swan station.
Sayid was considered to be an Other
or a "Hostile" as DHARMA calls them
and locked up in a DHARMA jail.
Young Ben Linus helped him escape
after which Sayid shot young Ben.
Ben survived, but Sayid is a wanted man
by the DHARMA Initiative.
This is Phil, who works in DHARMA security.
This is Roger Linus, Ben's father.
Roger recognizes Sayid
as the Hostile they had locked up.
This is Jin and Hurley
also survivors from Oceanic Flight 815.

Part 1, Act 5

Juliet knows Kate and Sawyer have a history.
When Kate returned to the island
Juliet believed her life with Sawyer
might be in jeopardy.
This dog is Vincent
who also survived the crash of Oceanic Flight 815.
He belonged to Walt, who left the island
with his father Michael.
This is Rose, another Oceanic 815 survivor.
This is Rose's husband Bernard
also an Oceanic survivor.

Jin has been separated from his wife, Sun
for three years.
During the flaming arrow attack
Sawyer shouted instructions
to meet at the creek, but no one did.
Rose had cancer, but the island healed her.
She doesn't want to leave the island
for fear the cancer will come back.
Sawyer was in love with Kate
but she could never make up her mind
between him and Jack.
Now, Sawyer truly loves Juliet
but Juliet sees he still has feelings for Kate.
Rose and Bernard's true love
represents an idyllic life
Juliet wishes she had with Sawyer.

Ben claimed the Others were the good guys
before he took Jack, Kate and Sawyer prisoner
in the Season 2 Finale
"Live Together, Die Alone."
This is Jacob's cabin.
Ben, Locke and Hurley looked for Jacob here
in the Season 4 episode, "Cabin Fever."
Locke found Christian Shephard in the cabin
who said he could speak on behalf of Jacob.

This close-up of a closed eye opening
is an iconic image of LOST.
Jack's eye was the first image of the series
This is Ilana, who is recovering from burns
in a Russian hospital after an accident. It is unclear if Jacob touches Ilana.
Ilana was not on Oceanic Flight 815.
She came to the island on Ajira Flight 316.

Ben also brought Locke to this cabin
in the Season 3 episode
"The Man Behind the Curtain."
Ben pretended to talk to Jacob
even though no one was there.
Locke heard someone say, "Help me"
and briefly saw a man sitting in a chair.
This is a piece of the tapestry that Jacob
was weaving in the beginning of the episode.
The image in the tapestry
is the Tawaret statue seen on the beach.

Part 1, Act 6

John Locke is the man lying on the ground.
He was pushed out of an eighth floor window
by his own father, and was paralyzed
as seen in the Season 3 episode
"The Man from Tallahassee."
Notice that Jacob touched Locke
as he did with the other Oceanic survivors
but Locke was seemingly brought back to life.

Locke regained the ability to walk
by the healing power of the island
immediately after the Oceanic 815 crash
as seen in the Season 1 episode, "Walkabout."
This is the beach camp
where the Oceanic 815 survivors lived.
The quarantine door is the hatch door
leading into the Swan DHARMA station.
Locke and Jack blew open the hatch
in the Season 1 Finale, "Exodus."
When Desmond turned the fail-safe key
and caused the explosion of the Swan station
the door was blown across the island
and landed in the beach camp.
Ben learned he had cancer
on the day of the crash of Oceanic 815.
Jack removed Ben's tumor
in the Season 3 episode, "I Do."
Ben's daughter was killed
in the Season 4 episode
"The Shape of Things to Come."
This is a role reversal.
Ben has always manipulated Locke
to get what he wants.
Now, Locke is manipulating Ben
This is the crib that Locke built for Claire
when she was pregnant with her son, Aaron
in the Season 1 episode, "Numbers."
Sun is drawn to it because it reminds her
of her own little girl, Ji Yeon.
This is Charlie's ring that he gave to Claire.
The ring is a family heirloom
and Charlie named his band "Drive Shaft"
after the "DS" initials.

This is the first time we've seen
Sun and Jin together since the Season 4 Finale
"There's No Place Like Home."
This is Jacob, again making contact
with the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815.

Part 2, Act 1

The foot has only four toes
and is all that remains of the Tawaret statue.
Sayid, Sun and Jin saw the four-toed foot
in the Season 2 Finale
"Live Together, Die Alone."

This is Jack's first solo operation
a spinal surgery on a 16-year-old girl.
The surgery has lasted 13 hours
and Jack is about to close her up.
Jack knows he has only one minute
to get the nerves back in the sac
and sew up the patient
or the girl will be paralyzed.
Jack shared this story with Kate
in the first episode of the series
Jack explained how he learned
to control his fear by counting to five.
But because Jack has
a complicated relationship with his father
he failed to mention that it was his father
who gave him the suggestion.

The Apollo candy bar
was the first thing Kate found and ate
in the Swan station food pantry on the island
as seen in the Season 2 episode, "Adrift."
When Jack was 12-years-old
his father told him
"You just don't have what it takes," as seen
in the Season 1 episode, "White Rabbit."
This is Jacob.
Notice he touches Jack's finger
when he hands him the candy bar.
Jacob's comment reflects
the confidence he has in Jack's heroism.

There has always been tension
between Jack and Sawyer.
After Jack returned to the island on Ajira 316
Sawyer criticized Jack's leadership skills
saying Jack reacted impulsively
and did not think strategically.
"What's done is done" is the same advice
that Sawyer's Uncle Doug gave him
at the funeral service for Sawyer's parents.
It's also what Faraday originally said
about changing the past.
But Faraday later realized
that they might change the future
by changing the variables
and Jack believed him.
Jack knows Sawyer won't understand
that they have a purpose and a destiny
for being brought to the island.
But there is one thing
that Sawyer can understand
one thing that Jack and Sawyer share
and that is their love for Kate.
Kate was arrested and extradited
back to the U.S. to stand trial for murder
as seen in the Season 1 episodes
"Tabula Rasa" and "Exodus."
If they can change the future
Oceanic Flight 815 will land in Los Angeles
instead of crashing on the island.

Part 2, Act 2

This is Juliet as a young girl.
Her sister, Rachel, will have cancer as an adult.
Juliet will help Rachel get pregnant
after chemotherapy left Rachel sterile.

Juliet was a member of the Others.
but she joined the Oceanic survivors
in hopes of finding a way home.
Juliet is covering her hurt with cynicism.
She knows Sawyer loves her
but deep down she fears he loves Kate more.
Juliet's marriage ended in divorce
when her husband was unfaithful
as revealed in the Season 3 episode
"Not in Portland."
The fear of losing another person she loves
is enough to make Juliet change her mind
and support Jack's plan to change the future.

This is the same hatch door
we saw earlier at the beach camp
but here in 1977, it is new
and "quarantine" is not yet stenciled on it.
A guass reading is the unit measure
of magnetic flux density.
The "Hostile" that Phil is referring to is Sayid.
Sayid saw the Swan blueprints
and scaled model that Radzinsky built
in the Season 5 episode, "Namaste."
Kate sewed up Jack's wound
that he suffered in the Oceanic 815 crash
in the first episode of the series.
Kate left Aaron with his grandmother
in the Season 5 episode
"Whatever Happened, Happened."
The separation was very difficult for Kate
and she took out her anger on Jack.
Kate is not Aaron's real mother.
She lied about giving birth to him
on the island
to protect everyone they left behind.
Kate came back to the island
to reunite Aaron with his real mother, Claire.

Part 2, Act 3

Hurley was arrested
for allegedly murdering three men
whom Sayid actually killed.
The men attacked Hurley and Sayid, as seen
in the Season 5 episode, "Because You Left."
This is Jacob, once again off the island.
and visiting Hurley
an Oceanic 815 crash survivor.
The guitar case looks very similar
to Charlie's guitar case
which was last with Charlie on the island
in the Season 3 episode, "Greatest Hits."
"Hugo" is Hurley's real name.
"Hurley" is a nickname
but he never told anyone what it means.
Hurley has the ability to see dead people
and since leaving the island he has seen
Charlie, Libby, Mr. Eko and Ana Lucia.
Hurley believes he is cursed
because he used the numbers
4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 to win the lottery
as seen in the Season 1 episode, "Numbers."
Since winning the lottery,
Hurley has had nothing but bad luck.
Hurley was a patient in a mental hospital
both before he crashed on the island
and after he was rescued.
This is the first and only time
anyone has told Hurley that he is not crazy.
Notice Jacob just touched Hurley
on the shoulder.

Sayid believes nothing can save him
because he feels guilty about his past.
Before the crash, Sayid was a torturer
in the Iraqi Republican Guard.
After being rescued, Sayid was an assassin
for Benjamin Linus and killed many people.

Jacob will only speak
to the leader of the Others
as Richard explained to Locke
in the Season 5 episode, "Follow the Leader."
Ben is actually telling the truth
but doesn't have the energy to explain.
Ben arrived on the island
as a young boy in 1973
as seen in the Season 3 episode
"The Man Behind the Curtain."

Part 2, Act 4

Miles is the first person to voice the concern
that Jack's plan may cause
what will become known as "the incident."

"Live together, die alone"
is the phrase Jack used to rally the survivors
to get along with one another, as seen
in the Season 1 episode, "White Rabbit."

This is not the same DHARMA van
seen with Hurley, Jin and Sayid.
Sawyer, Kate, Juliet and Miles
took another van to the site.
Sawyer was Phil's boss
in the DHARMA security department
as seen in the Season 5 episode, "LaFleur."
In the Season 4 Finale
"There's No Place Like Home"
Locke watched a Swan orientation film
which featured Dr. Pierre Chang.
Chang warned
that the island's electromagnetic properties
were highly volatile and unpredictable.
In the Swan orientation films
Dr. Chang was seen with a prosthetic hand.
This is the incident that caused Dr. Chang
to lose the use of his hand.

Part 2, Act 5

"What lies in the shadow of the statue?"
is a code.
Richard's answer translated from Latin
is "He who will save us all."
The Others speak Latin and consider it
the language of the enlightened
as Juliet explained
in the Season 5 episode, "Jughead."
This is the body of John Locke.
Locke was murdered by Ben in Los Angeles.
Ilana is using the body as proof to Richard
that the man posing as John Locke
is not really who he says he is.

The words on Jacob's tapestry are in Greek.
The top line is from Book 6
of Homer's The Odyssey, and reads
"May the Gods grant thee
all that thy heart desires."
The middle line of Jacob's tapestry
is from Book 24 of Homer's The Odyssey
and reads
"And may the Gods grant thee happiness."
The bottom line is from an anonymous author.
It is also in Greek and reads
"Only the dead have seen the end of war."
The "loophole" Jacob mentions refers to
his conversation with the Man in Black
from the beginning of the episode.
