Last Appearance of None


Jake is at work when he receives a phone call asking for "Commander Gilligan." Jake recognizes the person's voice, and agrees to meet him at 13:00 hours in the "usual rendezvous point." His manager, Lucas Nations, walks by soon after, griping that he needs Jake's TPS reports. Before he leaves, he comments that he heard Jake's phone call, saying "Commander" smugly.

The "usual rendezvous point" is actually the staff lunch area, where Jake and his coworker play an army strategy board game. Lucas arrives and once more belittles Jake. He reveals that he has read Jake's personal file, as well as documents on his desk about going on a "convention." His coworker asks if Jake would be telling "Michelle" about his trip as Lucas laughs at the idea of Jake actually having a girlfriend. He says that Jake should stop kidding himself because he can't do any of these things. Jake replies, "Don't tell me what I can't do."

Jake speaks on the phone with a woman he calls Michelle, ecstatically discussing his upcoming convention. He asks her if she'd like to accompany him at his convention in Australia. Seeming annoyed, the woman says that she is not allowed to meet customers and suggested he find a therapist. Much to Jake's dismay, she ends the call.

In Australia, Jake is prepared for his convention. However, the man at the door refuses to allow Jake admittance, on account of his credit card being rejected. As Jake moves away pissed off, heshouts back at man calling him an asshole.

On the IslandEdit

Day 4

At night on the beach, all the castaways look over as Bubbles barks loudly. However, another noise soon catches their attention, as rustling and roars are heard emanating from the fuselage. Daniel moves to investigate with the rest of the group, but the creatures inside begin to move towards them, and the group runs for their lives. With the whole camp flustered, Jake steps forward to provide an explanation: the creatures are in fact wild boars.

Still a little shaken, some of the survivors discuss the situation in the fuselage. The remains of the dead are rotting in the sun, not to mention attracting wildlife. Daniel puts forward the harsh truth that the bodies should be burnt, much to the dismay of Jordyn, who points out that this act would show no regard to the individuals' wishes or beliefs about death. Daniel, however, is undeterred.  He states that the fuselage itself will be burnt at sundown the next day, which will also provide a strong signal fire that night for possible rescue.

Day 5

In the morning, Katie finds Paul, who is working on trying to make antennas to triangulate the distress signal that they heard previously. Meanwhile, Killer and Oisin fight over the contents of a backpack, which contains the last of the peanuts. The group realizes that they have exhausted all of the food from the plane and face the prospect of starvation. As Killer mocks Paul's idea of finding food on the Island, a knife hurtles towards him, hitting a piece of plane wreckage right next to his head. Jake stands up, suggesting that they hunt the boars that attacked them. With the help of two others, he plans to kill the piglets, which would provide food and allow the mother to continue living to possibly breed more in future. As Daniel and the rest of the group agree, Jake reveals the case he found after the crash, which is full of hunting knives.

Katie prepares to join the hunting mission, and Daniel asks her why she is always so willing to sign up for outings into the jungle. She reveals that Paul had given her an antenna to try to isolate the distress signal, which she is going to use when further inland. Colgy is also gearing up for the trek. Elsewhere, Jordyn asks Daniel about a possible memorial service before they burn the fuselage, but is abashed when Daniel coldly responds, "Look, it's not my thing."

Nathan is standing on the beach throwing stones into the water. As he does this Jane walks over to him and asks if he's okay. Nathan points out that they're here 5 days now and still nothing. Jane tells him they'll be fine. Nathan however disagrees and believes they wont be saved. Jane tells him that lighting the fuselage will start a signal fire and will be helpful.

In the jungle, Jake tracks the boars' movements while Colgy explains to Katie that he cannot wait to go home. They suddenly happen upon one of the boars, but when Colgy speaks loudly as Katie and Jake silently approach, the mother boar charges at them in fear. Colgy is injured, with Jake also winded. Katie asks if he is all right, and he calls her something else in a Freudian slip. While Katie tends to Colgy, Jake says that he will find the boar alone, and states, "Don't tell me what I can't do" when Katie doubts him.

Will and Roly try to catch fish with a stick to little avail, as the tides throw them back. Meanwhile, Jane finds Paul, giving him a letter she found with his name on it. Inside are photos of a young woman. Up the shore, Daniel and Sue begin talking to Denise, and she reveals amongst other things that she only became a doctor as a result of medicine being the "family business." She originally wanted to be a teacher.

As Katie and Colgy head back, she climbs up a tree to attach the antenna. However, before she can finish, she hears the sounds of The Monster, causing her to drop and break the equipment. The Monster heads straight for Jake, who stares straight at it.

Brian offers Jane some diaries and documents he found previously, and Colgy arrives back at camp with Katie. Will and Roly also arrives back from their own hunt, but caught nothing. Elsewhere, Daniel and Sue walk to the center of the camp to prepare for the memorial. Paul arrives shortly after with Killer and James. Suddenly, Paul sees a man in a suit standing by the trees, and is shocked into silence. On second glance, however, the figure is gone, and a confused Paul ignores it.

Katie returns the broken antenna to Paul, with the resolve that they will try again until they succeed. Daniel arrives, and Katie reveals that Jake was right in the Monster's path, and probably did not make it. However, Paul once again sees the man in a suit and runs into the jungle, with Katie at his heels. Instead of the figure, however, they find Jake, who brings with him a dead boar.

At sundown, Jordyn reads off the names of the dead, giving brief bits of trivial information she managed to glean from the documents in the wreckage. The only survivor not attending is Paul, who sits away from the service looking out at the sea.  Colgy appreciates Jake for hunting the boar and then asks Jake about the Monster, but Jake says that he did not see anything. Looking towards the fire, he sees his helmet silhouetted against the flame.
