The lost episode is released. I mean it was lost for 2 days but that is still lost, right? The party is split, and they are in some real trouble. No body knows what they are doing to effect each other's battles. Will Key accidentally kill Lance? Will Lance cause a riot to ruin Locke's plan? Will Locke go into business for himself and screw the others over?
The only way we can find out is by listening.
