1977 Barracks battle
Roger Linus recognizes Sayid
July 1977
Survivors' victory
At least 3 DHARMA members, Sayid is wounded

The 1977 Barracks battle was a battle in which Jack, defending a wounded Sayid shot by Roger Linus, fought several DHARMA Initiative members, successfully killing at least two of them. The battle ended when Hurley, Jin and Miles came in a DHARMA van and helped Jack and Sayid escape. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")

Lead up

A young Ben is shot by Sayid, the event which led to Roger Linus shooting Sayid at The Barracks("He's Our You")
Richard Alpert, using a sledgehammer, revealed an area in the tunnels where a house in the DHARMA barracks could be accessed. After leaving Richard and an unconscious Eloise behind, Jack and Sayid emerged from the tunnels where Jughead was kept into the Goodspeeds' empty home. The two then needed to get out of the Barracks so they could get to the Swan site. Upon seeing the huge amount of DHARMA members outside, and with Jack knowing they will be attacked if they are recognized, Sayid suggests they "hide in plain sight". They don the Goodspeeds' DHARMA uniforms and simply walk through the Barracks, past many security employees including Phil. They had almost made to the other side of the housing compound until Roger Linus recognized Sayid as the man who shot his son, Ben Linus. ("He's Our You") ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")


The conflict was initiated when Roger recognized Sayid in Horace's uniform and shot him, after a holding him up at gun point for a short time. Jack, who was trying to protect Sayid, shot back, making Roger retreat a short distance and causing a few other DHARMA Initiative members start shooting at Jack. While attempting to take Sayid to safety, Jack shot and presumably killed two of the DHARMA shooters. Near the end of the firefight, a DHARMA van sped towards Jack and Sayid, and only after Jack shot at it did he realize that the van, which was being driven by Hurley, Miles and Jin, had come to help them flee. After Jin helped Jack load the wounded Sayid in the van, they drove away from the Barracks. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")


Kate looks at Jack's wounds shortly after his fight with Sawyer. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")
A few of the DHARMA shooters were killed, and Sayid was wounded in the battle. Even with their plan to detonate a large explosive now revealed, Jack and Sayid managed to escape the battle and started to head towards the site of the Swan construction. However, as the van was about five minutes away from reaching the site, the group was stopped by Sawyer, along with Juliet and Kate, so that Sawyer could have a conversation with Jack. The two quickly get into an argument over the plan to detonate the thermonuclear core, with Jack claiming it's his destiny to change the past, while Sawyer believes "what's done is done" and they shouldn't try to change the past. A fistfight ensues, and the two have to be seperated by Juliet after many punches have been thrown. With Juliet now on Jack's side, the group continued on to the Swan site, and they still got there on time to detonate the bomb immediately after the Incident. ("The Incident, Parts 1 & 2")
