O-Missions

{{I=Huntingpartycap632.jpg=200=right=The Others, led by Tom make themselves known in great numbers to Jack, Sawyer, and Locke.}}
'''"O-Missions"''' is a term for when the Others assemble a strike team to undertake a mission, such as kidnapping Walt {{crossref}}, or invading the survivors' camp. {{crossref}} The nature of these missions was best summarized by Ana Lucia (a Tailies who felt personally victimized by the Others). {{crossref}} {{I=3x23 AtGunpoint.jpg=200=left=Standoff at the last major "O-Mission" before the Others retreated for a period.}}
An "O-Mission" refers to a mission of the Others, which usually includes a combination of Ben, Richard, Tom and other members sent on infiltration or military operations.

{{quote
=ANA LUCIA They came the first night that we got here and took three of us. Nothing happened for two weeks, then they came back and took ''nine'' more. They're smart, and they're animals, and they could be anywhere at any time. Now we're moving through the jungle - ''their'' jungle - just so you can save your little hick friend over here. And if you think that one gun and one bullet is going to stop them - ''think again''. So shut your mouth and keep moving.

=Definition= To be considered an "O-Mission", at least one Others must be responsible for the idea of performing the mission, though one or more members of the Nicknames"A-Team,", "B-Team" or Freighter may support this plan. Additionally, any of the base members of the Others Ben, Richard, Tom, Bea and Pryce may assume leadership of a mission. This number has been supplemented from time to time as Ethan, Goodwin, Mikhail and Pickett have been called upon by Ben or Richard to serve the interests of the Others. An "O-Mission" is further defined here as an individual or strike team targeting an individual or group of individuals for capture (in the case of the survivors) or elimination (in the case of the mercenary team). The term for a primary or main survivors mission is an "A-Missions," the term for a supportive or independent survivors mission is a "B-Mission," the term for an Others mission is an "O-Missions" and the term for a Freighter mission is an "F-Missions." Each are interpreted as reactions usually counter to the goals of "O-Missions." ==Members== {="font-size13px; text-align center; background-color;" ="font-size11px; text-align left;vertical-aligntop; background-color;" ="font-size11px; text-align left;vertical-aligntop; background-color;" ImageRichardmini2.jpg Richard "A-Team" , communicator with Jacob Others though only rarely has he been seen in an unquestioned leadership position.

While it was a subtle presence for the mid-section survivors, it was an aggressive presence for the tail section. This established the "O-Mission" as being one of stealth or infiltration being masterminded by Benjamin Linus at the DHARMA Initiative Barracks with forces showing up intermittently to terrorize the survivors respective beach camps. The primary "O-Missions" in Day 1-44 consisted of Ethan and Goodwin being planted in the mid-section and tail section camps, respectively, as well as fixation on abducting survivors for unknown purposes (specifically children)...

Yet, when Claire woke up in the middle of the injection, Ethan was forced to retreat and Claire became convinced that someone was trying to hurt her and her baby. Hurley took it upon himself to take a census of the middle section survivors, and compared it with the manifest from the plane that Sawyer had. When Ethan realized that a census was being taken, he realized that it was only a matter of time before the survivors realized he wasn't on the plane. =right }}

Although Eko killed two of them, three Tailies were missing the next day. = '''Half-Accomplished''', although many of the tail-section survivors were successfully abducted, the remaining survivors soon moved inland and disappeared from the Others' radar. =The Others' lists =On the 12th day, the Others moved into the tail section’s camp and took all the people on the list, including the kids. Ana Lucia killed one of the invading Others and pulled a pocket knife and lists from her pocket.

A frantic Charlie then came running through the jungle, calling for help and telling Ethan to go find Jack since Claire was having serious contractions. Ethan pretended to go run for help but instead doubled back and surprised the two, staring vacantly at Claire, the newest pregnant woman on the Island since the rest had died from infection. = '''Half-Accomplished'''; despite warnings from Ethan to go back, Kate and Jack persisted in their pursuit and found Charlie hung by his neck from a bundle of vines in the tree, yet Claire was nowhere to be found = Ethan wanted Claire for her pregnancy, the Hatch = Jack, Kate, Locke, and Boone proceeded after Claire when it became apparent from Hurley's census that Ethan was not on the plane. They found the remnants of a struggle and a drag trail, so the four split up into two teams (Jack/Kate, Locke/Boone) to track the abduction. Jack found Ethan after following his trail but was beaten down and told to stop following the trail. Jack pressed on and found an unconscious Charlie hanging from a tree by neck, apparently dead. Ethan had abducted Claire successfully. Charlie was eventually resuscitated but Claire was not seen for a week. =left }}

Ethan's death brought the first severe casualty of the Others out of the tension with the survivors. News of his death prompted Juliet to beg Ben to allow Goodwin to return home, as well as cost the Others their very skilled surgeon. =left }}

Track the Tailies

{{Sectionbox O-mission =Track the Tailies =2X07 AnaGoodwin.jpg = {{ep}}, {{ep}} = Goodwin, Tom, Pickett = Tailies = With the realization that the Others knew their position, Ana Lucia ordered Tailies to extinguish the signal fire on the beach and trek inland through the jungle to avoid further victimization. It was around this time, nearly a month into their time on the Island, that Ana Lucia began to suspect Nathan, a fellow survivor, of being "the Others" and imprisoned him in the tiger pit she had built specifically to interrogate him. He was later released in the night by Goodwin who promptly snapped his neck before he could reveal that Goodwin was the spy of the Others. = To relocate the Tailies and begin to take them again as needed. =A-Missions(Pt. 5) Hide in the Jungle(Pt. 5) Hide in the Jungle = None =fail = Goodwin was exposed, Juliet "belongs" to Ben =The Tailies had by now disappeared from the Others, who were having trouble tracking them and monitoring their progress across the Island. When Ana Lucia realized Goodwin was never on the plane, she confronted him and killed him with a stake to the chest. Although the Others failed to relocate the Tailies' position in the jungle, a recon team led by Tom and Danny Pickett came across the dead body of Goodwin, reporting it to Ben. Ben, now annoyed by Juliet pressing for Goodwin's return from assignment, brought her out to the spot where Goodwin had been killed and showed her his body. As she wept over it and accused Ben of sending Goodwin to his death, Ben told her that she was disrespectful to him by being involved with Goodwin to begin with. Since he brought her to the Island, she is "his." Goodwin's body remained there, and was stumbled upon by Jin and Eko as they attempted to return to the survivors' beach camp. =right }}

While the raft sailed undisturbed for almost an entire day, it was eventually intercepted by a the Others' boats crewed by what appeared to be fisherman. These "fisherman" were actually the Others who had come specifically for "Walt," as the Whispers had alluded to (according to Danielle). = success = The The Others' boats = When the boat stopped and Tom told them that they would "have to take the boy." When Michael refused to turn his son over to these people, Tom turned off their search light and things took a dark turn from there Sawyer reached for his gun and was shot off the raft, Jin dove in after him, and the Twins (Others). They beat up Michael, grab Walt, and knock Michael off the raft as they put Walt onto their boat.

With Walt in their custody, the Others slowly begin to realize that he is more "special" than they had previously realized and many are afraid to be in the same room as him. With the tail section survivors terrified by the numerous abductions by the Others when they first got to the Island, the survivor faction as a whole begins to rebel against these invisible enemies. As the survivors venture into the DHARMA stations and cover more territory on the Island, the Others begin to feel more threatened by their "guests" and deliver a message for them to stay away. But that all changes once their leader, Benjamin Linus, is captured incidentally in one of Danielle Rousseau's nets and the survivors find him...
