The Mirror of Erised

Lighthouse Grounds: Jack sits upon a high seaside cliff -- staring off into space -- time -- his life. Meanwhile, Jacob appears to Hurley who is also outside, but back down by the lighthouse. When Jacob asks how it went, Hurley expresses his disappointment. "Where were you, man?" Jacob says that doesn't matter, since Jack wouldn't have been able to see him. Hurley chides Jacob for not giving him more information. Amen. He also adds, "Thanks for the seven years of bad luck, by the way." Hee. Jacob just points at Hugo and says, "You've got ink on your forehead." Hurley points out how that is hardly relevant at the moment, as his mission remains unaccomplished, thanks to Jack's temper tantrum. "Whoever needs to get to the island is totally screwed." Jacob takes this in stride. "Oh, I'm sure they'll find some other way." Hurley says, "So, everything you wanted me to do didn't get done, and you don't even care?" A beat. "Wait a minute. Did you want Jack to see what was in that mirror? Why?" Jacob says it was the only way for Jack to understand how important he is.

Hurley complains that if that was the plan, it backfired. Jacob remains patient and calm. "Jack is here because he has to do something. He can't be told what that is. He's gotta find it, himself. Sometimes, you can just hop in the back of someone's cab, and tell them what they're supposed to do. Other times, you have to let them look out at the ocean for a while." Hurley says, "Well next time, why don't you tell me everything up front? I'm not big on secret plans, okay?" And although I truly don't want to know everything at very this moment, the spirit of Hugo's request resonates with me, Jacob. Jacob couldn't care less what I want. He's got his own concerns. He tells Hurley, "I couldn't risk you not coming, Hugo. I had to get you and Jack as far from that Temple as I possibly could." Hurley joins in our chorus: "Why?" Jacob says, "'Cause someone is coming there. Someone bad." Hurley springs into action. He wants to warn the Templars. Jacob says he can't. "I'm sorry. It's too late." Speaking of which...

Claire's Lair: Claire returns to find poor Jin staring at Justin's remains. She explains that if she hadn't killed him, he would have killed her. Now Claire is all feral and out of her mind, but I don't think she's wrong about that. She sits next to Jin and adds, "Glad you didn't untie him." She also wants to know why Jin said Kate was raising Aaron. Jin thinks quickly. "I was lying." He explains he wanted to save Justin's life. Claire is not amused, so Jin adds, "But you were right; the Others have your baby. Aaron is at the Temple. I know because I saw him there, but you'll need me to get to him." Good show, Jin! He explains that there's a secret way in (though I'm not sure how Jin knows about that). Claire thanks him and adds that she's so glad he was lying. "Because if what you said was the truth -- if Kate was raising Aaron? I'd kill her." Jin doesn't have to hold his poker face too long, because just then the Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, [comes] whiffling through the tulgey wood. Er... that is to say Faucke enters Claire's lair. "Am I interrupting?" Jin looks up at him in amazement. "John?" Claire smiles, cocks her head and addresses Jin like he's the silliest goose that ever did honk. "That's not John. This is my friend." Faucke and Claire smile at each other and then at Jin. Dun! Title card. Bad robot!
