A Rabbit can be found on a rise above Ashford Village in Lakeside County. Unlike other creatures, the rabbit appears on the radar as a green dot like an NPC. Currently, the rabbit does not seem to be incorporated into any in-game mechanics.

The rabbit cannot be tamed by rangers using Charm Animal or killed. Thus, contrary to dictionary definition and intuition, rabbits are not considered animals as per the game definition. AoE spells don't seem to have any effect.

There are also three rabbits involved in the Factions quest Free the Fur.

You can heal or enchant the rabbit, but it is not necessary.

There are white rabbits in Eye of the North, which also cannot be tamed by rangers. There are some rabbits in Grothmar Wardowns and Drakkar Lake, however, unlike other rabbits, the ones found near Drakkar Lake can both turn hostile and be killed. On the south-eastern side of Drakkar Lake, there are 3 other rabbits, and following these will get you to an ambush of Spectral Vaettir once you reach the bottom. If you are going to fight them, it is recommended to prepare before they pop up.

You get a small warning about this when speaking to Sif Shadowhunter, who, upon opening a dialog says "I am Sif, great hunter of the north, slayer of ten dozen wolves, threescore bear, and one vicious rabbit." Obviously, you are not the first to follow the white rabbit into a trap.

Summoning Stone

The rabbit also appears as a random summon from a Mysterious Summoning Stone. The attack animation is reminiscent of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, as the rabbit jumps up to neck level and bites (probably a reference to the scene where the killer rabbit decapitates a knight). The rabbit is an Assassin and uses the following skills:

"White Rabbit" is the fifth episode of Season 1 of Lost. The survivors begin to struggle as they realize they are running out of fresh water. Meanwhile, Jack continues to see his dead father's figure on the Island. Flashbacks in this episode show a little bit of Jack's childhood and also what Jack was doing in Australia.

Synopsis

Flashbacks

A young Jack lies on the ground in fear as a bully threatens him, while his friend, Marc Silverman, is being beaten by another bully. Jack attempts to intervene, resulting in him getting a black eye from the bully.

Later on, Jack explains the fight to his father, who tells Jack about his day at the hospital over a glass of whiskey on the rocks. Christian says that he's able to cope with the difficult job of surgeon because he "has what it takes." He claims that he can make life or death decisions daily, because even when he fails, he can live with the consequences. He concludes that Jack should not "decide," because if he failed, he wouldn't "have what it takes".

Years later, Jack is talking with his mother, as an adult. She tells him that his father has gone away, to Australia, and that she wants Jack to go and get him. He refuses, saying that they haven't spoken in months. She makes her son feel guilty about what he did to his father (see A Tale of Two Cities and All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues), and she demands that Jack retrieve him.

Jack's father's hotel room in Australia

In a hotel room in Australia, the hotel manager tells Jack that his father hasn't used the room in three nights, and that he was involved in an "incident" in the hotel bar. The manager also says that he didn't rent a car, because no one would rent him a car "in his condition". Searching the room, Jack finds bottles of alcohol, pills, and his father's wallet.

Jack identifies his father's body

An unknown amount of time later, Jack walks down the hallway of a morgue. A mortician tells him that the body presumed to be his father's was found in an alley, with the cause of death suspected of being a fatal heart attack brought on by high blood alcohol levels. Jack identifies his father and fights back tears.

With nothing left for him in Australia, Jack heads to the airport, preparing to board Oceanic Flight 815. Lacking proper documentation, the airline's ticket agent refuses to allow Jack to store the coffin on the plane. Jack explains that he needs the coffin to be allowed on board because he has all the arrangements set for the funeral and he needs to bury his father, so that it will all be over.

On the Island

Jack's father in the jungle

Jack is woken by Charlie in a state of panic, and the two rush to the shore amidst a crowd of survivors. The screams of a young woman are heard from out in the ocean. Charlie says, "I don't swim," so Jack dives in and swims to save her. However, Jack finds Boone in need of assistance (he had also tried to save the woman) and pulls him back to the beach. Looking back, the group realizes it is now too late for Jack to go after the woman, and all they can do is stand there as her screams die out.

Hurley, Charlie, and Jack discussing the water shortage

Later, while talking to Kate about the young woman whom Jack finds himself responsible for her death, Jack sees a man dressed in a suit, watching from a distance as he had a few days before. Jack asks Kate if she saw him too. She says she did not, and asks Jack how long it has been since he slept.

Hurley and Charlie approach Jack to tell him the survivors are running low on fresh water. Boone, angry with Jack for saving him and not Joanna, gets into an argument with Jack, asking who made him their leader. Jack, distracted by another appearance of the suited man, runs off after him.

Claire, who earlier showed signs of heat exhaustion and dehydration, collapses, and when Kate goes to give her some water, it is discovered that someone has stolen what little remained of their water supply. Locke announces he will go into the jungle and search for a source of fresh water, mentioning that he is the only survivor who would know where to look.

Locke saving Jack
Jack finds the suited man at the edge of the jungle, and when the man turns around, it is revealed to be his father. After recovering from his shock, Jack chases the man into the jungle. As Jack runs further into the jungle, his father disappears and reappears several times, and the pursuit is punctuated several times by the adding machine sound of the Monster. The chase culminates when Jack sees his father closer than he has appeared before, and runs toward him full force, almost as if to tackle him. Christian disappears once more, leaving Jack to fall down a rocky hill, rolling off the side of a cliff. He grabs onto some roots, and tries to hoist himself up but is unable to do so. It takes a fortunate appearance by Locke to get him back on solid ground, where all Jack can do is break out into laughter.
Jack and Locke discuss Jack's hallucination

In a manhunt to find out who stole the water, it is discovered that Jin traded with Sawyer for some water; however, when Sayid and Kate follow Sawyer to see where he is hiding the water, it turns out that the bottles he traded were the last of his own supply.

Jack and Locke discuss Jack's "hallucination", and Locke advises that he should pursue it, comparing it to the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. Locke tells Jack to put it to rest, and consider the possibility that everything that is happening on the Island happens for a reason. He then tells Jack, "I looked into the eye of the Island, and what I saw... was beautiful," referring to his previous encounter with the Monster. ("Walkabout")

Later, night has fallen, and Jack sits at a fire. A figure moves behind him, and he hears a sound reminiscent of ice rattling in a whiskey glass. He lights a torch, and heads into the jungle, following the man. He finds a cave with a spring of fresh water, where he finds some debris from the plane, including what appears to be his father's coffin. Jack opens it and finds it empty. He tears apart the coffin in frustration.

Back on the beach, Boone gives water to an unconscious Claire. It is revealed that it was Boone who stole the water, in an attempt to take responsibility for its rationing. A fight ensues, but Jack returns and interrupts, saying that he has found fresh water and that they must all band together if they are to survive, because "if we can't live together, we're going to die alone."

Trivia

General

  • Both Jack's first full flashback episode "White Rabbit" and his first flashforward episode "Through the Looking Glass" are titled in reference to the "Alice in Wonderland" books.
  • This is the first episode with a flashback featuring both child and adult versions of a character.
  • This is the first episode to open with a flashback.
  • Christian's name is an obvious reference to Jesus Christ, who is considered to be a shepherd by His followers, the Christians.
  • Christian's death, mysteriously empty coffin, and "resurrection" are all clear references to Chapter 16 of the Book of Mark, specifically verse 8. Mark is the oldest of the 4 Gospels, and Chapter 16 is the final chapter. In it, Mary Magdalene & Mary, Jesus' mother, go to Jesus' tomb to anoint His body. When they arrive, they find that the large stone placed to block the tomb's entrance has been moved. They enter the tomb and find a man, assumed to be an angel, dressed in a white robe. The man in white tells them that Jesus has been resurrected and that they should go and tell the disciples He has gone ahead of them and will meet them in Galilee, just as He had prophesied. However, the women are so frightened by what has happened, that they never tell anyone of what they saw. Jack's reaction to seeing his father is similar to that of Mary & Mary Magdalene. Lacking the faith to believe what he has seen, Jack never tells anyone of his visions, or even of the fact that his father's coffin was empty. It is important to note that the oldest known versions of the Book of Mark, and other ancient witness accounts of the Gospel, do not have verses 9-20, making verse 8 the Book of Mark's original ending.
  • Kate has the astrology birth sign of Gemini.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Margo Shephard.
  • A Lost: On Location for this episode is available on the Season 1 DVD with the Best Buy/TV Guide Bonus DVD or Blu-ray Disc set.


Bloopers and continuity errors

  • When Charlie and Hurley are questioning Jack about the water in the tent, two people, a man and woman, walk behind Jack twice in the same direction.
  • When Jack is hanging off the edge of the cliff, he briefly looks up. You can clearly see that it is a stunt actor portraying the character and not Matthew Fox.
    • When Jack falls over the edge of the cliff and Locke rescues him, Locke, who is out looking for water, should notice the stream running through the rocks below.
    • When Locke is grabbing Jack over the edge of the cliff, you can see the microphone at the top of the screen.
  • When Charlie runs to get Jack at the start of the episode, he says that he doesn't swim. However, it is shown later, in the episode "Greatest Hits", that he was taught to swim as a child. Also in Greatest Hits, Charlie claims to have won the title of Junior Swim Champion in Northern England. He also successfully swims out to the Looking Glass station in the season three finale. It is possible that when Charlie told Jack he didn't swim, he didn't mean he could not swim.

Music

Main article: Musical score
Main article: Musical themes

"White Rabbit" uses a lot of music tracked from earlier episodes, most notably the pilot. However, there are also numerous statements of a new four-note motif that Michael Giacchino has not used since. This motif plays frequently in scenes involving the apparition of Christian on the Island. The episode also contains the first haunting statement of the "Life and Death" theme later used for the deaths of numerous major characters. This is heard on synthesizers as Jack discovers the caves, and later on piano as he talks with Kate on the beach at the end of the episode. (The latter can be heard as "Win One for the Reaper" on the season 1 soundtrack.)

History

Born into a rich family, the White Rabbit was a sheltered child, protected by over-bearing parents intent on seeing their daughter become a proper lady. Finding solace in the many books of the family library, she was entranced by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.

Later in life, at the age of 25, she married a rich elderly man 82 years of age. Finding life as a trophy wife stagnant and boring, she killed off her husband which authorities ruled an accidental death.

With funds from the inheritance she developed a career as the White Rabbit.

Starting off her criminal career small, she began by robbing fast-food restaurants. In one such incident, she crossed paths with Eugene Patilio, aka Frog-Man. and nearly beat him to death. Were it not for Spider-Man intervening on the fracas, Patilio would have died. Her accomplice gang at the restaurant were left to fend for themselves against Spider-Man and Frog-Man, coming up short.

Seeking vengeance against Frog-Man, the White Rabbit contacted Speed Demon, Yellow Claw and the Walrus (all of whom had previously lost in clumsy matches against Frog-Man) to join forces in taking him down. Only the Walrus accepted her offer and the pair starting causing havoc in Brooklyn as the Terrible Two.

Not long after, the pair faced Frog-Man with his dad Leapfrog joining in on the fight. Spider-Man also appeared, out on patrol and spotting action, and the three took down the Two, despite a clumsy victory with Patilio falling on the Rabbit's back.

Continuing her misfortunes as a criminal, the Rabbit was stopped by Grizzly and his partner the Gibbon during an attempted bank heist. Capturing the two, she tried to ransom them to the city for 1 billion dollars. The mayor made what he considered a fair counter-offered for the pair: $2.50. Incensed by the rejection, she took to bombing the city and raised her request to 5 billion. Her plans were foiled when Spider-Man, as Bag-Man, distracted her while the the Gibbon and Grizzly escaped from the pit in which she had placed them. Not wanting to be seen as sexist, the fleeing Grizzly felt obligated to knock out the White Rabbit.

She appears to have developed a relationship with Arcade, and was dating him when he decided to abduct Black Cat and Wolverine so they could serve as the prey in his island resort for rich hunters. Naturally, the two heroes decimated the hunters, uncovered his scheme, and escaped the island shortly before he caused it to self destruct by volcano. The two decided it would be ironic to give the pair a taste of their own medicine, and abandoned them in the Savage Land next to a small tied-up goat. When White Rabbit wanted to save the goat from an approaching Tyrannosaurus Rex, Arcade called her stupid and ran. Evidently, White Rabbit lucked out. The goat turned out be a focus of worship for a group of Savage Land cannibals, who saved her and treated her as a Queen. As he hung over over an open flame, Arcade tried to convince her their problems could be worked out. Feeling no inclination to release him, her only response was "you shouldn't have called me stupid."

Most recently, she has widened her reach to drug dealing to the stars, in particular, dealing MGH to Bobby Carr. However, she was foiled in killing him by Mary Jane Watson and captured by the authorities.

The White Rabbit is one of the animals that can be hunted in the Piscatoris Hunter area using the members-only Hunter style of Rabbit Snaring. It is rarely hunted because it requires a quest to hunt and a ferret, which can escape from a player, so he or she will have to catch another before he or she can resume hunting rabbits. These rabbits don't give the same meat rabbits do.
