Locke puts his map in the Pearl's pneumatic tube. Kate and Sawyer arrive at the beach and retrieve the heroin from Sawyer's stash under his tent. Outside Hurley finds them, and they take him to the Swan. Jack injects Libby with the heroin, and she regains conciousness long enough to say "Michael!" before dying.

Hurley wants to go back, but Jack tells him that if they do they might all get killed. Jack says that he has a plan. Jin sees the rock Michael described. Sayid goes ashore and investigates the Others village. It's a fake, nothing is there, and the bunker is fake as well. Eko detonates the dynamite against Charlie's cautions. The blast door is undamaged, but a fireball sweeps through the hallway. Michael leads Jack and everyone to a large clearing that has the exit from the Pearl's vaccuum tube. Hundreds, if not thousands of unopened messsage tubes litter the ground. Sawyer finds and gives Locke's map to Jack. Sawyer sees the black smoke of Sayid's signal, but it's miles away.

Mr Friendly succeeds in stealing the boat, leaving Sayid, Sun and Jin behind on the beach with no transportation. In order to gain Jack's trust Henry Gale reveals his real name to Jack and informs him how much time has gone by since the plane crashed and that they have contact with the outside world.

She warns Jack against Ben and wants him to "accidentally" kill Ben during his spinal surgery. Eko is killed by the monster in the jungle. Locke decides to bury him there, and goes to get shovels and Eko's "Jesus stick". Jack refuses to operate on Ben. Juliet asks Kate to try and persuade Jack to do the surgery, or else Pickett will kill Sawyer. When Jack learns that's why Kate is asking, he still refuses. Kate slips out of her cage and bashes open the lock on Sawyer's cage. Sawyer tells her they're on a small island and there's nowhere to run. Kate and Sawyer have sex.

I would love to see more information about the timeline of the island before the plane crashes (even if it's approximate) - when was the purge, when did Danielle arrive, when were the videos made, etc. Also, the timeline of the losties before they arrived on the island.
