Once inside the plane, he finds Sayid and his Marshall sitting in first class. Sayid looks like he wants to speak to Jack (and in a more kindly manner than when last they met), but looks at his Marshall and thinks twice. Jack then passes Sun, who is contemplating Jin's wedding ring. He approaches Kate and says, "You made it." She echoes him. "Yeah, I made it," but what she doesn't make is room for him in her row. He waits, because he wants to sit with her, but she doesn't budge. He takes his seat at the back of first class, just as Hurley enters with a guitar case. He sits a couple of rows behind Sayid's Marshall. Just as the flight attendant declares that's everyone, a whiny little voice carries down the hall. "Hold up. Waaaaaait, please." It's Ben. Of course. Now, that's not duplicating the flight, is it? His face is pretty scratched up, so I'm now pretending all the blood on it earlier was his own. His left arm is in a sling, so I'm also pretending that if he got anywhere near the Special Snowflake Family, he was sent packing before he could do too much damage. Sayid sees him board, but manages not to say anything. Not our Hurley, though. "Wait! What's he doing here?!" Jack tries to calm him down, but Hurley yells, "No, no, he can't come!" Jack puts his hands on Hurley's shoulders and tells him that if they want to get back, this is the way it's got to be. Define "want" Jack. Meanwhile, Ben says, "Who told you to be here, Hugo?" They're interrupted by the flight attendant who asks if everything is okay. Hurley begrudgingly lies that it is and returns to his seat. The flight attendant then asks Jack if he's Jack, and since he is Jack he says he's Jack. She then hands him Locke's suicide note, commenting that security found it for him, while screening his "cargo." And why the hell didn't they leave it in there? Really, that would have pissed me off. She then directs Jack and Ben to their seats because the plane is readying for take-off.
