Let's talk about LOST! Missing Pieces 10: Jack Meet Ethan?

{Jack is going through suitcases. Black and White garments. His back is to us. Jack's hair is longer that the original time period. Ethan walks up; wearing his Wisconsin sweatshirt}

ETHAN- "You're the Doctor, right?
JACK-  "Yeah... That's me."
ETHAN- "Well, I heard you were rounding up the medicine, so I figured... you might want this."
{He shows Jack a suitcase filled with meds. Note that there are medicine bottles there that must have already been gathered.}
JACK- "Whew."
ETHAN- "HAHAHA. Jackpot, right?  Guy must've been a hypochondriac or something."
JACK- "Where'd you find this?"
ETHAN- "In the jungle. I'm Ethan, by the way"
{They shake hands.}
JACK- "Jack."
ETHAN- "Thank you, Jack."
JACK- "For what?"
ETHAN- "Getting all this together, having a little perspective, you know, thinking long term. Most of the others still think we're going to get rescued any time now."
JACK- "And you think I don't?"
ETHAN- "No, I think you're smart. And I think you're looking at that girl, {We see pregnant Claire} knowing you might actually have to deliver that baby here. I know that's what I'm thinking."
JACK- "Well, it's nice to know I'm not alone."
ETHAN- {Laughs} "You're definitely not alone."
JACK- "If she does go into labor, at least I know I've got an assistant. {Ethan looks at him and looks away.} I'm sorry, I didn't mean ta..."
ETHAN- "It's all right, don't worry about it.  Anyway, I'm glad the meds help."
JACK- "Yeah. Thank you."
ETHAN- "You're welcome."
{Ethan gets up to leave.}
ETHAN- "Jack, um, my wife died in childbirth.  And our, uh, our baby didn't make it either. {Jack just looks at him not saying anything.} Well, let's hope we're both wrong and the rescue boats are on their way right now."
JACK- " Let's hope."
{Jack watches Ethan walk away.}

Great Mobisode!

My first note to paper was the title!!!
* How convenient is it that Ethan, an "Other" finds a suitcase filled with all kinds of meds? WOW!! Yeah, No fucking coincidence!  The Other's way of getting "drugs" to the camp perhaps?!  Are they hoping there will be Losties who "need" it?   HA!  I wonder what those meds really contain?!
* Ethan's comment about "The guy must have been a hypochondriac or something." Is Ethan already privy to Sullivan?
* Ethan commends Jack on organizing things at the camp; getting people to pull together so they can "live together".    Ethan knows there will be "no" rescue.     Does Jack also know that fact somewhere deep in his memory or subconscious?   No rescue means they have to live together on the "Island". Of course there will be no rescue. They are all already home...They are where their supposed to be.
* Jack is not ALONE!  They are all in it together.
* Ethan knows the baby will be delivered on the "Island" and Jack's thinking the same thing. Jack assumes Ethan will help deliver Claire's baby.   Does Jack know Ethan is a doctor?   Does Jack remember something? Could Ethan be Jack's assistant in some way?
* Kate ultimately delivers the baby.
* Ethan sharing his bit about losing his wife and child in childbirth, is that true?   If it is, when did that happen? Months ago? Years ago? 100 years ago? Never? Maybe he still has a wife and she's there.

So, Ethan's job was to mix in with the survivors, make lists for Ben and it appears to me, to be sure this case of meds/drugs gets into the camp and into the Losties.  Mission complete!  Or is it?...
Could this be from another time?

Words of the day...
Perspective, in the context of vision and visual perception, is the way in which objects appear to the eye based on their spatial attributes, or their dimensions and the position of the eye relative to the objects.

Forced perspective can used to deliberately misrepresent an object's size, making something appear larger or smaller than it really is. These are forms of optical illusions.
A vanishing point is a point in a perspective drawing to which parallel lines appear to converge.

Aerial perspective or atmospheric perspective is the effect on the appearance of an object by the atmosphere between it and a viewer (or the technique of depicting this effect in a work of art, such as a landscape painting). As the distance between an object and a viewer increases, the contrast between the object and its background decreases.

Perspective in theory of cognition is the choice of a context or a reference (or the result of this choice) from which to sense, categorize, measure, or codify experience, cohesively forming a coherent belief, typically for comparing with another. One may further recognize a number of subtly distinctive meanings, close to those of paradigm, point of view, reality tunnel, umwelt, or weltanschauung.
 To choose a perspective is to choose a value system and, unavoidably, an associated belief system. When we look at a human perspective, it is a more social value system and its associated beliefs.

Perspective in pharmacoeconomics refers to the economic vantage point that is being taken in a pharmacoeconomics. 5 general perspectives that are often cited in pharmacoeconomics include: institutional, third party, patient, governmental and societal.

In geometry, two triangles are perspective (or homologic) if, when the sides of each triangle are extended, they meet in three collinear points. The line which goes through the three points is known as the perspectrix. The triangles are said to be perspective from the line.

* The origin of the word jackpot comes from a version of draw poker where a pair of jacks or better are needed to open the "pot" to start betting.
- Jackpot is the name of an Autobot character from the Transformers universe.
- Jackpot is a fictional comic book character owned by Marvel Comics. Jackpot's first appearance was in the Free Comic Book Day Spider-Man Special. This is a female character.
- Jackpot may also refer to: A prize in a game of chance, often one that increases over time, as in progressive jackpots.
* Wisconsin. A state in the United States. It's name may come from an ancient Ojibwe word, Miskwasiniing, meaning "Red-stone place," and was recorded as Ouisconsin by the French. Wisconsin's economy was originally based on farming (especially dairy), mining and lumbering.

Love to all who are "LOST" ™

Disclaimer: I never claim to know everything about the show and my thoughts by no means make me right! The things I share here are my views and/or opinions. I don't claim to catch every single detail either! You all know I hate spoilers! And I stand clear of reading certain sites as to not take me off my own course of research. The one thing I don't need to do here is rehash all of the obvious clues from an episode, we all know what they are. Understood? Good! Let the fun begin! I'll only note things that I know come up as clues later, but need to be noted when they first show up and things I find that will be of importance! It will get very exciting as we progress into the story.
