Mobisode transcript
[[{{{transcript2}}}|Part Two]]

"So It Begins" is the thirteenth and final Lost mobisode. Christian tells Vincent to wake up Jack shortly after the crash of Flight 815.



Vincent is trotting through the jungle, as we follow his point of view. After moving past a bag of luggage with clothes strewn about, he hears a whistle. It is Christian Shephard, who calls the Labrador closer. Christian wears white tennis shoes. He tells Vincent to go wake up his son, who is unconscious and not far away. As the dog trots off, Christian adds, "He has work to do." We then see the opening moments of "Pilot, Part 1": Jack's eye opens as he awakens disoriented in a bamboo grove and Vincent approaches. They look at each other for a moment before Vincent trots off.

  • This mobisode was leaked in full quality the same day as the Verizon version was released.
