The "A-Team"

Main article: A-Missions

The "A-Team" plus Claire plan to draw out Ethan. ("Homecoming")

The "A-Team" is a fan term for the Lost characters who most frequently go on expeditions and/or participate in offensive or defensive strikes against the Others. The composition of the "A-Team" is not fixed, but generally includes:

References in Lost

The "A-Team", minus Sayid and plus Ana Lucia, discuss a response to the attack on Sun. ("The Long Con")

  • There have been references to the "A-Team" in the show. In "Everybody Hates Hugo", Charlie accused Locke of keeping him out of the loop and called the Black Rock expedition "swanning off on the bloody A-Mission." Sawyer also used the term in "Exposé", stating the "A-Team" (in this case, Kate, Sayid and Locke) took all the guns.
  • Sawyer used the phrases "jibba-jabba" and "lets roll" in the episode "Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1", which were catchphrases of Mr. T on the original The A-Team TV show.
  • A parody video on Youtube mixes various Lost scenes with The A-Team intro music, complete with credits, explosions, and B.A. Barracus' gold chain (which happens to be montaged on Hurley).

Parody on YouTube:



A "redshirt" is a background character in a TV show, generally one whose primary purpose in the narrative is to get killed. The name comes from the original Star Trek series, where security personnel wore red shirts (vs. gold for command crew, blue for scientific, et al). There was usually at least one of them on exploration teams, and one of them would usually die. They have also been referred to as "socks" or "meat-filled socks" by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse on the Official Lost Podcast. They have also been referred to as "log-carrying people" on The Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack.

  • In the Season 2 Extras DVD feature "The World According to Sawyer," several of the actors, writers, and producers are interviewed throughout a montage of Sawyer-specialty nicknames.
