Mobisode transcript
[[{{{transcript2}}}|Part Two]]

"Buried Secrets" is the eighth Lost mobisode. It features a conversation between Sun and Michael. Jin and Vincent also appear.


Jin is busy with his fishing equipment as Sun looks at him from the jungle. She takes a California drivers license out of her pocket and begins to dig a hole to bury it. At that moment, Michael runs by looking for Vincent. He apologizes for interrupting, and Sun tells him she needed a moment for herself. Michael then sees the license and picks it up. Sun tries to explain that she was going to leave Jin and that she thinks it's her punishment to be stranded on the Island. Michael comforts her by telling her that it will be okay. The two almost share a kiss, but Vincent appears barking before anything can happen, prompting Sun to leave.
