The beach camp battle was the final deadly fight between the survivors and the Others. The battle was the climax of the tension between the two factions, and saw the Others' numbers decimated. Notable characters who died in the battle include Tom and Ryan Pryce.



Ever since Season 1, the two factions have had hostile relations with each other. The survivors were scared of the Others, because of their constant kidnappings and murders of many survivors, such as Claire, Charlie, and Scott. The Others also had their reasons for hating the survivors, such as the murders of Ethan and Colleen. However, the Others saw the survivors as good subjects for their research, especially the pregnancy issues on the Island.

Juliet and Ben discuss their plan

Ben created a plan that would supposedly give the Others all the pregnant women living at the beach camp.

Ben made Juliet infiltrate the camp, and find out which women in the camp were pregnant. Juliet was then meant to mark each tent that had a pregnant woman in it, and then a team of Others would kidnap them. ("Through the Looking Glass")

But, the survivors gained the upper hand when Juliet revealed the plan to Jack. Jack saw this as a perfect opportunity to strike a blow to the Others, and using the dynamite from the Black Rock he would "blow 'em all to hell". ("Greatest Hits")

The events took another twist when Ben decided to bring the invasion one day earlier than originally planned, but Karl managed to warn the survivors. The survivors reacted promptly, leaving Sayid, Jin, and Bernard behind to shoot the camouflaged dynamite while the rest of the camp evacuated to the radio tower. ("Through the Looking Glass")

Initial strike

A tent explodes

Ten others, described by Ryan Pryce as his "best," along with Tom, crept into the camp that night, armed with guns and syringes (presumably full of tranquilizers), prepared to kidnap the pregnant women (whose tents they believed to have been marked by Juliet). However, upon opening the first tent Diane discovered it to be a ruse, screaming it to her fellow others before being blown up by Sayid's gunshot into the dynamite. Bernard successfully destroyed the second tent. When Jin shot the dynamite it failed to explode so he shot several Others instead, killing Matthew and Luke before being captured by Pryce. Bernard attempted to escape into the jungle, but was captured by Tom. Sayid was held at gunpoint by Jason after attempting to save Jin.


After noticing that only two explosions had gone off, Sawyer, Juliet, and Hurley decided to reinforce the original three. Sawyer and Juliet went to the camp while Hurley went to get the DHARMA van (unbeknownst to the other two).

Hurley runs over Ryan

When Sawyer and Juliet arrived at the camp, they stayed hidden and tried to assess the situation. But, Hurley came out of the jungle in the DHARMA van and ran over Ryan. This surprise attack was taken advantage of by Sayid and Sawyer, with Sayid breaking Jason's neck with his legs, and Sawyer shooting Tom. Hurley then contacted Jack's group, saying the operation was an entire success.


The loss of the battle, as well as the arrival of the Kahana, resulted in the Others staying quiet for some time, not being seen by the survivors until "There's No Place Like Home, Part 1".
