Full Lost DVD Epilogue

Update: Sadly the clip was taken down. If you want my summary of what happens, keep reading; if not it looks like you'll have to buy the DVD:

They're in some Dharma supply factory and 2 guys are working. Ben comes in and tells them they're not needed anymore and gives them money as severance. They demand answers and Ben tells them the stuff goes to the Island and then shows them a video with Pierre Chang like the previous Dharma training videos shown in past seasons. It's revealed that women can't have babies because of the electromagnetism on the island and that polar bears were brought there for animal experimentation. In the next scene, Ben goes to the Santa Rosa mental facility to see Walt who is pretending to be someone else. Ben convinces Walt to go with him because he's special and Ben, Walt, and Hurley return to the Island.
