*http//www.onthemedia.org/transcripts/2006/05/12/08 These words are followed by a series of short clips that recap the scenes that are important for the current episode. The purpose of these "Previously on ''Lost''" clips is to both remind viewers about current and past storylines, as well as aid comprehension for those who may not have seen the last few episodes of the show. These segments last for approximately one minute, forty-five seconds, and include original musical score by composer Michael Giacchino.

In some cases (such as in {{ep}} and {{ep}}), the episode proper begins with a scene that is a direct continuation of a previous scene, and thus the "Previously on ''Lost''" segment figures into the narrative flow of the story. Sometimes, speech and actions are changed or edited from their original versions. Originally, in {{ep}}, Benjamin Linus said, "Your friends are coming home with us." In the "Previously on ''Lost''" for {{ep}}, Ben says, "You're coming with us." The "Previously on ''Lost''" from {{ep}} features a previously unseen overhead shot of the US Coast Guard plane as the Oceanic Six are greeted by their family members.

==Example==

The "Previously on ''Lost''" from the episode {{ep}} sees the following concept 
* "Previously on ''Lost''" is said, during which a scene is shown of Jack Shephard and Desmond Hume running at the stadium. There is a condensed version of events, including Desmond saying that he is training for a sailing race. The two also exchange names.
* On the Island, Jack investigates the Swan and notices the magnetic force acting on the key around his neck.
* Kate Austen is shown tied up, trying to get out, while John Locke is being ordered to type in the Numbers.
* The dramatic cliffhanger is shown between Jack, Desmond and Locke. End dramatic music
* Michael and Sawyer arrive on land after the destruction of the Raft, and Jin comes out of the jungle followed by the tail section survivors, who they think are Others. Smash out
The episode proper follows directly from this last scene, with Eko knocking the three middle section survivors unconscious, and the tail section survivors bringing them to Ana Lucia's tiger pit.

{{ep}} |} == The voice == The voice of "Previously on ''Lost''" is that of former ABC chairman Lloyd Braun. J.J. Abrams asked Braun to do the voiceover as an homage for his role in the making of the show, after Braun was fired from ABC following his commissioning of the ''Lost'' pilot. Braun agreed on the condition of anonymity. Abrams, Braun, and a sound man met in a conference room at the Beverly Hills Hotel and recorded the line. According to Braun, the recording was lowered in pitch somewhat to help disguise the voice. The identity of the voice was kept secret for a few years. According to Braun, it was Howard Stern, a close friend of his, who found out and leaked the identity. http//nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2010/02/lloyd_braun_interview_lost_voi.html Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse also confirmed in the Lost The Complete Fifth Season (DVD){{ep}} that the voice is that of Braun, and not Cuse, as commonly believed. Before it was openly disclosed that Braun was the voice, many rumors and guesses as to the voice were alleged, and producers upheld the mystery of the identity *In the Official Lost Podcast transcript/February 13, 2006, 2006 Official Podcast, Carlton Cuse said the "Previously on ''Lost''" voice is a "mystery person". Cuse also denied being the voice. **As Damon Lindelof read him the question, he instructed Carlton not to reveal the true identity of the person. **They also specifically denied that Tim Daly was the voice. *In a July 14, 2006 post on thefuselage.com, script coordinator Gregg Nations said that the voice was of Carlton Cuse. http//forum.thefuselage.com/showthread.php?t=54652 *During the Lost The Complete Fourth Season (DVD){{ep}}, Damon Lindelof mentioned that, contrary to popular belief, the voice is not his. The "Previously on ''Lost''" for {{ep}} and {{Ep}} has a higher-pitched voice. This is likely the normal version of Braun without the pitch lowered. == List of countries that did not air "Previously on ''Lost''" == * Belgium * France == See also == *Previouslies on Lost (humorous spoof series) *Clip shows == References == {{reflist}} == External links == *http//www.onthemedia.org/transcripts/transcripts_051206_desperatenetworks.html Desperate Networks esPreviously on Lost ptAnteriormente em Lost categoryRoot CategoryProduction terminology
