"Jack, Meet Ethan. Ethan? Jack" is the tenth Lost mobisode. Ethan brings Jack a suitcase of medicine, and they discuss the prospect of Claire giving birth on the Island.


Jack is at the beach camp looking through suitcases to find medicine. Ethan walks up and shows him that he found a suitcase full of medicine in the jungle. Ethan introduces himself and thanks Jack for taking the initiative to round up the medicine, since most of the other survivors still think they will be rescued. Ethan points out a pregnant Claire, and suggests that they both know that Jack will have to deliver the baby on the Island. Jack suggests that if Claire does go into labor, Ethan could be an assistant, to which Ethan looks concerned. Before Ethan leaves, he makes a very awkward comment to Jack about losing his wife and baby in childbirth. Ethan then remarks that he hopes the rescue boats are coming, to which Jack agrees. Ethan awkwardly stares at Jack for a few seconds, then leaves.
