Some Like It Hoth
Season 5 | Episode 13 | Aired 04/15/09
At the motor pool, Hurley and Miles check in the van. Hurley admits that he used to hate his dad, too. But after his dad came back, he gave him a second chance and they got to be best friends. He doesn't know if he'll ever see him again, but he misses him. Miles says he never knew his dad and doesn't want to. Hurley says that was Luke's attitude, too. Luke found out that Vader was his father, and instead of talking to him, Luke overreacted and got his hand cut off. They eventually worked it out, but at what price? Another Death Star was destroyed, Boba Fett was eaten by the Sarlacc, and we got the Ewoks. And it all could've been avoided if they just communicated.
Miles crosses through the barracks on his way home and stops -- reacts to what he sees. It's Chang holding a little baby in his lap. Chang is holding baby Miles and reading to him! It's an idyllic father-son moment, and his mom is in the back cooking dinner. Chang is animated, totally into the moment. Miles sees that despite what his mother told him, clearly this man loves his son. Then Chang gets a phone call and gives baby Miles to Lara. Chang hangs up and walks out. Miles walks in the opposite direction, but Chang sees him and says he needs his help. There's a sub with scientists coming in from Ann Arbor.
Miles drives Chang down to the docks, and they help the scientists from headquarters unload. And as Miles is helping the last guy out -- he sees that it's Daniel Faraday returning to the island. Miles is surprised. Faraday smiles and says long time no see.
