In the beginning of the episode "Raised by Another", Claire appears to have some sort of highly lucid dream or nightmare. When Claire wakes up, she is hysterical and has blood on her hands; Charlie eventually manages to calm her down. It is discovered that she has been sleep walking, and Jack) reveals that she has driven her fingernails a quarter of an inch into her palms. Later in the episode, (the next day) after Claire wakes up screaming again, Jack tells Charlie and Kate that "these are textbook anxiety nightmares."

Dream sequence

Claire is seen waking up. With a confused and concerned expression on her face she looks down and feels her stomach, and notices that she is not pregnant. A baby's cry is heard and Claire starts off into the jungle in a daze, apparently looking for the source of the crying. Claire sees a light in the forest and walks toward it. She encounters Locke sitting at the table at which she received her psychic reading (in her flashback later in this episode); the psychic's electric lamp is also present. As she approaches, Locke draws what appear to be the psychic's cards from a deck one by one as he stares down at the table (the first one making the sound of a metal against metal, like a knife being unsheathed); they exchange a few brief words:

CLAIRE: What's happening?
LOCKE: You know what's happening.
CLAIRE: But I don't understand. Why --?
LOCKE: He was your responsibility but you gave him away, Claire. Everyone pays the price now.

As Locke finishes saying this, he looks up at her with a creepy expression on his face and has one black eye and one white eye. Claire then hears a baby's cry and runs into the jungle. She finds a crib (with a plane mobile identical to the one later found in the Nursery). Claire pulls the blankets back, finding a thick dark pool of blood and begins screaming hysterically; just then she wakes up.


  • When Claire runs away from Locke, she is literally running backwards - the footage has been reversed.
