"The Shape of Things to Come" is the 81st episode of the American Broadcasting Company television series Lost, and the ninth episode of the fourth season. First airing on April 24, 2008, in the U.S. and Canada, it was written by Drew Goddard and Brian K. Vaughan and directed by Jack Bender. The narrative centers on Ben Linus, played by Michael Emerson (pictured), as he and the Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 crash survivors at the Barracks come under attack in December 2004, while flashforwards to late 2005 show him recruiting Sayid Jarrah (Naveen Andrews) as a hitman and confronting his enemy Charles Widmore (Alan Dale). Production was paused by the 100-day Writers Guild of America strike. "The Shape of Things to Come" received positive critical reviews and the original broadcast was watched by 14 million Americans. Much praise was directed at Emerson's acting skills, particularly in his reaction to the execution of his character's daughter Alex (Tania Raymonde). His performance in this episode garnered a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards, and the episode was nominated in the category of Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series.

Jesse B. Jackson

Jesse B. Jackson was a United States consul and an eyewitness to the Armenian Genocide. He served as consul in Aleppo when the town was the junction of many important deportation routes. Jackson concluded that the policies towards the Armenians were carefully planned to "extinguish the Armenian race". He estimated that a million Armenians had been killed and considered his own survival a "miracle". After the genocide, Jackson led a relief effort and was credited with saving the lives of thousands.
