As the series finale opens, we see Christian Shephard's coffin arrive at LAX and gets removed from a plane and placed in a van.
While this happens, we see Jack in his office looking at Locke's x-ray. Ben is making himself a cup of coffee, his arm still in the sling. Locke is being wheeled off to surgery on a gurney and looks at his empty wheelchair. Sawyer prepares for another day at work and looks at himself in the broken mirror he punched in "Recon."
This sets up our characters as we enter the finale. I'll include the island shots from this montage in the next post.
