SPOILER ALERT (Updated 3:12 p.m. HST): Breathless word comes from Carrie of a recent “LOST” shoot in Kahala. Less than a block from the home where Hurley hid in Season 5, she found her neighborhood once again packed with trailers and trucks before sunrise. Fortunately for us, she blew off her morning plans when she spotted cameras being set up on the lawn of a home a few doors down.
The scene was brief, but dramatic… and may further complicate already complicated theories forming after recent filming reports suggesting the safe arrival of Oceanic Flight 815 in Los Angeles.
A yellow taxi cab pulls up in front of the house, and two women emerge. It’s a “very pregnant” Claire (Emilie De Ravin) accompanied by, inexplicably, Kate (Evangeline Lilly)… who may have been driving. They walk up and Claire knocks on the door, and an unfamiliar woman (reportedly actress Jenni Blong) answers. Claire introduces herself… and the woman immediately breaks down, crying.
“I’m sorry, I’m so sorry,” she says. “I really wanted this. But my husband… I just can’t have the baby right now.”
There’s anguish. And awkwardness. They’re not invited inside. But after a few more words are exchanged, it’s Claire’s turn to cry out. She cringes, and bends over, apparently and suddenly going into labor.
“Call a doctor!” Kate urges.
How do pregnant Claire and on-the-run Kate, previously strangers on a plane, connect in L.A.? Unless being on the run involved hijacking a cab with Claire as her fare? And what happened to the couple that was supposed to adopt Claire’s baby? Season six can’t get here soon enough.
