Video - whispers

Sonya on ocean enhanced

Enhanced capture of Sonya's face on the Ocean

As Sam looks out onto the ocean, he hears whispers. In an emotional plea, he calls for Sonya. Her voice eerily replies, "Sam--love you madly..." After this brief supernatural interlude, Mr. Ockham comes up and tells Sam, "It's just the wind. Don't let it get to you."

[At night, Sam is walking along the deck of the Christiane I when he hears what sounds like Sonya whispering his name]
SAM: Sonya? Sonya? Sonya!
[The video is interrupted with a sequence in which Sonya's face faintly appears on the ocean]
SONYA: [whispering] Sam... Love you madly.
[The sequence returns to the video]
SAM: Sonya?
[Ockham approaches]
OCKHAM: It's the wind.
SAM: I thought I...
OCKHAM: This place can play tricks on ya. Don't let it get to you.

Clue hunt


After the video, players must look around the deck to find clues from each of the first three seasons of Lost. The clues are found by searching the space and clicking on the correct objects:

Season 1 clue

Ch5-Season1 clue

The Season 1 clue, "Backgammon"

Clicking on the backgammon game with a hat on it on the table reveals the Season 1 clue: "Backgammon". In "Pilot, Part 2", Locke explained the rules of the game to Walt, mentioning, "There are two players. One side is light, and one side is dark."

Season 2 clue

Ch5-Season2 clue

The Season 2 clue, "Statue"

Clicking on the four-toed statue behind the yellow rope (on the left) reveals the Season 2 clue: "Statue". While Jin, Sun, and Sayid were traveling around the Island on the Elizabeth in "Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1", they spotted a four-toed statue.

Season 3 clue

Ch5-Season3 clue

The Season 3 clue, "Gas Lamp"

Clicking on the gas lamp over the swimfins reveals the Season 3 clue: "Gas Lamp". When Ben took Locke to see Jacob in "The Man Behind the Curtain", Ben brought a gas lamp into the cabin instead of a flashlight, as he suggested that Jacob did not like technology.

Season 4 clue

After finding the clues for the first three seasons, players can now click on the white box at the right with a small inscription that says "Property of Queen's College, Department of Physics". Doing so directs players to or Yahoo!7 (in Australia) to find the Season 4 clue word.

Puzzle: "Weather the Storm"

Ch5-clue hunt puzzle

Navigating around storm clouds and tidal waves

On one of the network partner sites, players seek a Season 4 clue by playing a game called "Weather the Storm". The player must steer the ship through bad weather, avoiding storm clouds and tidal waves.


Steer the ship using the left and right arrow keys. You can change the ship's speed by pressing the up and down keys (up = faster, down = slower)

Avoid the storm clouds (the ones with flashing lighting)

Also avoid tidal waves (the long pulsing lines).

Normal clouds are harmless.

An alarm will sound each time you are hit by a storm cloud or tidal wave.

You can only be hit four times (a hit metre is located in the bottom left hand corner).

Upon successful completion, the puzzle reveals the clue word "Southfields" on and "Red Sox" on Yahoo!7 (Australia).

  • Note: After the fourth clue, the link to the network partner's website might not lead to the right page if it's on, but to the one for Chapter Two. You can, however, access the right game but going through Find 815 in the menu; the last game is the right one and will give you the appropriate clue word.

Season 4 bonus clue

Ch5-Season4 clue

The Season 4 clue, "Queen's College"

Returning to, players can enter the Season 4 clue word ("Southfields" or "Red Sox") to reveal the Season 4 bonus clue: "Queens College".

Underlying images

There are also numerous mathematical notations faintly visible throughout the deck in the background of the clue hunt.

In the first image scene, three numbers appear on a buoy in the bottom left corner of the screen: 29.1138 27.2081 29.5672

There is also a slightly transparent map of Indonesia above the bunks.

Video diary

Sam declares, "We've found Black Rock," and recalls events having been witnessed in the last video. He says that the weather is too poor to explore the Black Rock at the moment and reminisces about his experiences with Sonya on a tropical island. He says as soon as the weather clears, he will be going down to see the wreck.

We've found it. We've found Black Rock. When we first got to this position, it looked like nothing was here. And Talbot said these coordinates were insignificant, just one of hundreds of entries from Black Rock's journal. I mean, I thought Ockham wanted to throw me overboard. I tried to explain; they just looked at me as though I was crazy. I mean, I don't blame them, coded emails, hidden messages. I mean, I was having doubts myself. So Talbot orders the ship to be turned around. You know, I was just gutted. But then, out of the blue, the sonar finds something. I thought Ockham was going to kiss me. So I've convinced him to let me drive one of the ROVs down to get a visual. If the Black Rock's got answers, I wanna be the first one to see it. But right now, the weather's too dangerous to go down, so we have to wait for it to clear. Which is, just lousy timing. Tomorrow it will be eight years since Sonya and I met. We met on this little island called Tanna in the Pacific. The only way in or out is on this very, very poorly maintained twin engine Cesna and, ah, well I was leaving the island and she was arriving. The weather turned bad, so I stayed. Back then, I didn't care if it rained forever. Right now I just want it to stop. I want it over.
