In episode 28 of We Have To Go Back Podcast we take a look back at LOST season 3 episode 7, “Not in Portland,” and episode 8, “Flashes Before Your Eyes.” “Not in Portland” is a Juliet flashback episode that shows us how she was recruited to the island because of her breakthrough fertility research. On the island, Juliet helps Sawyer and Kate escape, and Jack finishes the spinal surgery on Ben.

In “Flashes Before Your Eyes” we see the events that happened to Desmond after he turned the Swan Hatch fail-safe key. He was taken back to 1996 where he relived the moments when he tried to gain Charles Widmore’s approval and proposed to Penny. This time he encounters Eloise Hawking who reveals to him the he can not alter his destiny and he must end up on the island, push the button, and save the world. On the island, Desmond reveals to Charlie that he’s been saving his live, but it’s no use. The universe will course correct and Charlie will die.

Next up: “Stranger in a Strange Land” & “Trisha Tanaka is Dead.”
