LOST Tour: Bus Be Burkely

Season 3's Not In Portland features one of the more abrupt deaths in series history when Juliet's ex-husband is hit by a bus in front of his Miami workplace. After checking out some downtown Honolulu's LOST landmarks our Hawaiian Escapades tour made a quick drive-by of the building used for these scenes.

This is a better view, taken by Ryan Ozawa in October 2006 around the time that the episode was filmed.

And this is how it appeared on-screen as Edmund Burke exits the building, walks toward the road, then runs into Juliet.

Several trees with lovely violet flowers can be found near the road. The first picture below was taken during our tour drive-by, the second during filming, and the third is lifted from the episode.

There is also a very cool easter egg that is barely visible on-screen. Check out the bus in the upper left of the below screen cap.

The bus, which may or may not have an Other behind the wheel, has a major impact (literally) on the life of Edmund Burke. The side of the bus whooshes by in a fraction-of-a-second during the episode. Look familiar?

This behind-the-scenes shot from Ryan Ozawa provides a clearer view. "Full of Nuts", just like the LOST production team! (And LOST fandom, for that matter.)
