Thanks to Matt for the heads up on these major detailed spoilers that have appeared over at Lost-Forum based on the recent 20 min preview at the Paley Center.
I took notes until I got yelled at. This isn't complete but hopefully gives some interesting early insights.
It opens with an unknown man in bed with a woman. A baby cries. Woman says it's his turn. He grumbles but gets out of bed. Scenes much like the one with Desmond in the Hatch with food being prepared. Man feeds baby and leaves house which we see is in Othertown. He goes into a House which is set up like a TV studio. At this point we see the man is Candle. He is shooting the Arrow instructional video. He says the Arrow station was used for developing weaponry. He is interrupted by someone saying there is a problem at The Orchid.
He goes to the underground. They are digging. They have hit some weirdness which we know to be the donkey wheel chamber. He yells at the foreman for digging in a dangerous area. They know a power source is there that can control time. There are rules that can't be broken. If they release the energy there will be a problem. The shots widens out and we realize the worker he bumped into on the way out is the Freighter Scientist Daniel in Dharma gear.
Future time. We are at the Funeral Home where dead Locke is with Jack and Ben. They talk about pretty much what we already know and seen. They all need to go back. They need to get everyone together. Ect. At the hotel they watch a news broadcast of an escaped mental patient that is wanted for murder. It's Hurley.
Back to the Island. Aftermath of the light.
Locke is no longer with the group of Others. It's raining and he is alone. This surprises him. He starts yelling and running around.
Daniel out on the raft says they were "within the radius" and therefore ok for now.
Sawyer is with Juliette. He is shirtless still. They are wondering what is going on. Bernard runs out of the jungle screaming for Rose. She runs out as well and they hug. Sawyer tells them to calm down and go back to the camp. Bernard says there is no camp. They go to where the camp was and all the 815ers are looking around but there is no stuff. No wreckage. No Dharma food kitchen.
Daniel finds them. He says he knows what's going on. He wants them to go to the nearest place that has "man made" items. The nearest place is the Hatch. They start heading that way. Sawyer is shoeless and shirtless. Sawyer wants answers. Daniel says he can't explain. It would be tough to explain to a Physicist he doesn't know how to explain to Sawyer. He is very insistent that they hurry. Sawyer slaps him. It's funny. Charlotte came to Daniel's defense and was told by Sawyer he'd give her a slap too. He demands to know what is going on right now. He also wants Daniels shirt which he doesn't get.
Daniel explains the island is skipping like a record. Or maybe just they are, he isn't sure. He doesn't know when they are.
Locke is walking in a field. He sees a plane in the distance coming towards him. He ducks as it flies over. Something falls out. It's a Mary statue just like the ones they found before with Boone. He goes to where the plane has crashed. It is the Nigerian plane still stuck on the cliff. He yells but no one answers. He tries to climb up. Halfway through someone starts shooting at him. He gets shot in the leg and falls. That freaks him out but not as much as the man running towards him holding a gun. The man is Ethan. Ethan asks who Locke is and where he came from. Locke tries to explain that he knows Ethan and he shouldn't shoot him. Ethan raises the gun to kill Locke.
The flash happens again.
All of a sudden it's nighttime now and there is no Ethan. Locke is very confused and upset.
Sun is at an Airport. She goes to an Oceanic counter to check in. The agent notices her name and asks her to wait. She is thrown into a room when the door locks. Widmore comes in through a different door. He's pissed at Sun for talking to him in front of other people. He demands respect. He asks what Sun wants. Sun says she wants to kill Ben.
---I run out of notes at this time ---
The next part is the fight with Hurley and Sayid at the safe house pretty much the same as the clip that was released. It's slightly extended. While Sayid fights the man Hurley is standing outside holding a gun with blood on his shirt. A bystander snaps a cellphone pic of him. After Sayid wins the fight he is somewhat drugged and he leaves with Sayid.
It begins with a record playing (A woody nelson song) It starts skipping just like season 2 and 3.
Marvin Candle is asleep in bed with a woman. He gets up, turns the record off, and exits his house.
We see he lives in the barracks. He goes in to do a taping of a dharma orientation film.
Marvin: I don't need a script
Marvin: Let's go, I don't have all day!
Director: Okay dharma orientation film number 2, take 1. And action!
Marvin: Hello i'm Dr. Marvin Candle and this is the orientation film for station 2, the. Given your specific
area of expertise, you should find it no surprise that this station's primary purpose is to develop
defensive strategies and gather intelligence on the island's hostile, indigenous...
A man bursts in
Man: Dr. Chen!
Marvin: Damn it, what the hell?
Man: Sir we've got a problem down at the orchid
[We are now taken to an underground area where workers are building the orchid station.]
Man: Over here! We were cutting through the rocks and that's when the drill melted.
Marvin: The drill melted?
Man: Yeah. 3 meters from the margin land on the plans. We went through six pair of drills and the
last one just fried. Then my operator starts grabbing his head and freaking out.
Man: [Couldn't catch it]...20 meters in behind the rock, there's something in there
Man: The only way to get to it is to lay charges here and here.
Marvin: Under no circumstances! This space is being built here because of it's proximity to what is
believed to be an almost limitless energy. And that energy, once we can (?) correctly, is going to
allow us to manipulate time
Man: Okay so what, we're going to go back and kill Hitler?
Marvin: Don't be absurd! There are rules...rules that can't be broken
Man: So what DO you want me to do?
Marvin: You're going to do nothing. If you drill just one centimeter further and release that energy. If that were to happen...God help us all
Marvin: Let's go
A man with a worker uniform and his head down bumps into Marvin
Marvin: Watch yourself!
Man: Sorry Sir, won't happen again
The man lifts his head and is revealed to be Daniel
Worker to Daniel: Did you hear that? Time travel. How stupid does that guy think we are?
[We find ourselves with Ben and Jack in front of Locke's coffin]
Ben: Why don't you close that up now, Jack? Come on, let's get him in the van. It's out back.
Jack: Where are we taking him?
Ben: We'll worry about that once we pick up Hugo
Jack: Hurley is locked away in a mental institution
Ben: Which should make recruiting him considerably easier than the rest of your friends
Jack: [People were laughing, couldn't catch what he said]
Ben: Well that's the spirit...
Jack: How did we get here? How did all this happen?
Ben: It happened because you left Jack
Ben: Now let's get started, shall we?
[Scene of Ben and Jack in a hotel room from sneak peek]
[We see Locke waking up in the jungle by himself.]
Locke: Richard? Richard?! Anyone? Anyone?!
[On the island beach]
Guy: What happened? What was that light?
Daniel: We must have been inside the radius
[A little further away...]
Sawyer: What the hell was that?
Juliet: I don't know
Sawyer: Where's the freighter?
Juliet: Maybe it went down
Sawyer: Nah uh, no way. That boat was coughing black smoke and now there's just nothing?
Juliet: What about the helicopter?
Sawyer: It was heading for the boat
[Bernard comes running into the beach]
Bernard: Rose! Rose!
Bernard: Rose! Have you seen Rose?
Bernard: Oh my god!
Bernard: Rose where were you?
Rose: I was over there by the church. What was that light?
Sawyer: There's no need to panick. Just calm down. We'll just go back to camp and figure this out
Bernard: There's no need to panick? There is no camp!
Sawyer: What the hell are you talking about there is no camp?
[They walk back towards the camp, which is no longer there]
Bernard: The whole sky lit up and then this!
The kitchen...gone! And all the tents, the food and water...well, everything but us. All of it, it's gone
Daniel [Appearing]: It's not gone
Charlotte: I thought you were in the freighter
Daniel: No we never made it. We were on our way out there when it happened.
Sawyer: What do you mean the camp's not gone? Who the hell are you anyway?
Miles: That's Dan. He's our physicist
Daniel: Listen, we have no time. I need you take me somewhere that was man made, something
that was built. Any kind of landmark.
Juliet: There's a dharma station 15 minutes from here
Sawyer: You mean the hatch? The one we blew up?
Daniel: That's perfect. We should get going before it happens again, okay?
Sawyer: Before what happens again? And why is our camp gone?
Daniel: The camp isn't gone...it hasn't been built yet
[Kate and Aaron scene from sneak peek]
[The group walking towards the dharma station]
Juliet: Why'd you jump off that helicopter?
Sawyer: I told you, we were running out of gas. I wanted to make sure she...
I wanted to make sure they got back to the boat. Don't matter now anyway, does it?
Daniel: Excuse me, i'm gonna need the two of you to pick up the pace, okay? thanks
Sawyer: First things first. Give me your shirt
Daniel: My shirt?
Daniel: I really think we have far more pressing matters than getting you a new shirt. Now let's just keep moving, ok?
Sawyer: How about we call a time out so you can tell us what the hell is going on?
Daniel: How about you trust me?
Sawyer: Trust you? I don't know you!
Daniel: we really do not have time for me to try to explain. You have no idea how difficult that would be.
For me to try to explain this...this phenomenon to a quantum physicist, THAT would be difficult.
So for me to try to explain whatever is happening...
Sawyer slaps Daniel
Charlotte: what the bloddy hell do you think you're doing?!
Sawyer: Shut it ginger or you're getting one too
[To Daniel] Now talk!
Daniel: The island...think of the island like a record spinning on a turn table only now that record is skipping.
Whatever Ben Linus did down at the orchid station...I think it may have dislaunched us.
Miles: Dislaunched us from what?
Juliet: So that's why our camp is gone? Because the island is moving through time?
Daniel: Either the island is or we are
Daniel: That's just the way that we're moving...(couldn't catch it)
Daniel: And everyone in your group, you're all accounted for right?
Sawyer: Not everyone....Locke
Thanks to DarkUFO reader AndLoveYelledNO who transcribed the audio from the beginning.
Locke picks it up and sees it's a virgin Mary statue, just like the ones in Yemi's plane.]
[Another shot of Locke in the plane crash scene.]
Locke: Is anyone there? Hello?
[Someone starts shooting at him. The gunman comes out and reveals himself to be Ethan]
Ethan: Who are you?
Ethan: How many others on board?
Locke: You don't understand. I didnt come on that plane
Ethan: Wrong answer
Locke: No wait, stop!
Locke: I know you. I know who you are. Your name is Ethan
Locke: Your name is Ethan!
Ethan: Who are you?
Locke: My name is john locke
Locke: I know this is going to be hard to understand but ben linus has appointed me as your leader
Ethan: That is the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard. Goodbye John Locke
[The island moves in time just as he's about to pull the trigger]
[Back at the beach. It's night time now]
Sawyer: Oh great...
Miles: So when are we now, wiz kid?
Daniel: We're either in the past...or in the future
[We see sun at the airport.]
Ticket agent: Evening madam. Where are you flying to tonight?
Sun: Lost angeles
Ticket agent: of course. May i see your passport please?
[The woman types in her info. She looks up with a surprised look on her face]
Ticket agent: excuse me, could you wait here for just one moment miss kwan?
[Sun is taken to a room and locked in]
Sun: hey! Where are you going? open this door!
Widmore: Save your breath. They only do what i tell them to do
Sun: you had me brought in here? why?
Widmore: You had the audacity to approach me in broad daylight in front of my business associates. In public! why did i have you brought in? because you showed me no respect.
I will be respected, Sun
Sun: fair enough
Widmore: Since you seem to be worried about your plane, i'll get right down to business
Widmore: You mentioned that you and I have...common interests. Why don't you tell me exactly what they might be?
Sun: To kill Benjamin Linus
[Ben and Jack in the hotel room]
Jack: Okay, let's go get 'em
[The tv is on. A reporter is announcing Hugo Reyes is wanted for murder]
Ben: Well...looks like we have a change of plans
[Sayid and Hurley at a fast food drive through]
Hurley: Want a fry?
Sayid: No thank you
Hurley: YOu know maybe if you ate more comfort food, you wouldn't have to go around shooting people
[Sayid and Hurley scene from sneak peek]
