Eko enters the picture, and Ana-Lucia sounds genuinely concerned when she asks if he's okay. He says he is, but they have to leave now, because he saw them. This prompts a flurry of questions from the Tailaways, including this one from Libby: "Did you see the kids?" She's sharply rebuked by Ana-Lucia, like she doesn't want the Tailaways to talk about it, and Eko doesn't answer Libby anyway, just repeats that they have to leave now, so Ana gives the order, and they set out again, Sawyer grunting as he struggles to his feet.
Speaking of grunting, we're back at the Iraqi Love Shack, where Shannon and Sayid are naked and in a post-coital embrace, and I'd just like to point out that by the timer on my VCR it's been about two minutes. While Sayid strokes her hair, Shannon asks if all this means that they're serious now, and I kind of want to know if the writers are serious with this dialogue. "Quite definitely not," deadpans Sayid. True in both cases! "I do this for all the girls I meet on deserted islands." He's kidding, but I hope we get a little more insight into what's happening with Sayid that his whole Nadia thing -- you know, the love he has that served as his driving motivation in both of the Sayid-centric episodes last year? -- seems to have gone by the wayside. Either he's lying to Shannon, which I don't think fits with what we've seen so far in terms of the guy's integrity, or Nadia? He's just not that into you. However, I'm willing to accept that deserted-island sex with a fellow crash survivor is both defensible and wicked awesome. Shannon giggles, then starts to get up for some water. My wife made me promise not to make a joke about what she needs that for. Sayid kisses her forehead and says he'll go for her. He pulls on his pants and zips up and says he'll be right back, and exits the tent, Shannon smiling. She leans back, and then we hear a rustling, and I swear to god the closed-captioning reads "TENT FLAPUSTLES" as the candle behind her blows out. She's startled, but apparently thinks it's Sayid returning, and she says, "That was quick," which is something men always enjoy hearing after sex, but she glances up and sees Walt. Just like the last time she saw him, he's dripping wet. I paused it on Walt, and looks like puberty's hit, because he looks older and leaner. And Shannon screams as he whispers unintelligibly, and it sounds like the first word he says is "swallow," which, um just how long has he been standing there?
