"Cereal Experience" is an orchestral piece from the Season 6 soundtrack. It serves as a flash sideways motif for Jack.

Scene description

Claire enters the Shephards' kitchen, and David offers her cereal. The phone then rings, and the man at the other end tells Jack that Christian's coffin has arrived at Los Angeles.

On the Island, Jack threads a needle and stitches Kate's wound. She moans in pain. The two talk about Jin and Sun's daughter, and Jack agrees with her that they must kill Locke.

Full list of appearances

The motif from "Cereal Experience" plays during the following scenes:


The piece begins with Claire's flash sideways theme. It then plays its own motif, which later blends with Desmond's flash sideways theme. The second movement is a variation on Jack's theme.

Title significance

Jack and David offer Claire cereal. The scene appears slightly surreal with its odd perfection, and it turns out to be not entirely real.
