Background ( if you've never seen this show or forgot):
Oceanic flight 815 that was schedule to leave Sidney, Australia for Los Angeles but crashed in a seemingly deserted island. We later find out that many of the passengers on the plane are connected without even knowing it and most importantly that they are NOT alone on the island. The other group of people known as "the others" has agenda against the survivors of the plan crash which at the end of season one culminates in the Others blowing up the raft that the survivors had made as away to escape.
Here's a great recap video of Season 1
In Season2 , we find out that there are several hatches throughout the island and meet some of these others, in addition our survivors reunite with some passangers that were in the tail end of the plane and had a very different experience than the main survivors.
Here's another cool recap video:
