Lost Spoilers - The Constant - Season 4, Episode 5

This is the Lost Spoilers Blog for The Constant, 4x5 – Lost season 4 episode 5. Coming off an action-lite episode in Eggtown, the Lost spoilers theme for The Constant is that action is back. Sayid the Iraqi commando and Desmond the future glimpser are front and center as we find out what happened in the helicopter.

The preview video provides glimpses of the helicopter action, where Sayid does not understand why the freighter pilot is heading straight into a thunderhead cloud, the most turbulent type. The not-so-spoiler is he Faraday the physics guy told him to keep heading in the predetermined direction to escape the island.

One Lost spoilers sneak peak video from ABC provides heavy duty spoilers, or at least, fleshes out something we already know. We know there is a time difference between off-island and on-island. Faraday had timed it with the missile in the Economist. Now, Jack and Juliet are getting worried, after all, Sayid and Desmond are lost on Lost in the lost helicopter. So finally the Faraday spoilers are that the perception of time on-island is very different from that off island - 2 days gone on island may not be much time at all. But if you go off course, there will be some creepy side effects:

Another of the Lost videos spoilers sneak peaks focuses on Desmond, timeframe unknown, pulled up on to the freighter, and locked in a room with ... who is that? missing Minkowski:

A last Lost spoilers sneak video has surfaced. This one showing the helicopter with Desmond and Sayid landing on a boat, maybe THE freighter. Desmond has amnesia and says he does not know Sayid. The Lost spoilers are that Desmond is tripping around timelines. One of the suspicious characters on the boat takes Desmond below deck for a check up with the ships doctor:

The official ABC Lost spoilers press release is typically light on details and maybe heavy on mis-direction:


He sees dead people … himself?
