As our intrepid troop marches fearlessly through the jungle to save the downed pilot (is that a merit badge?), it finally dawns on Charlie that Desmond thinks the pilot is Penny. And we're back to the fried brain issue. He asks and Desmond says he hoped it was true, but after finding the picture, he knows it is. Charlie can't figure out why Desmond wouldn't tell them he thought it was Penny. Desmond asks, "Would you have come if I had?" Des, Charlie has no idea that he's about to get skewered like a wiener, so, yeah, he probably would have helped you find her if you'd asked. Desmond tries to cover his tracks by going on about not wanting to change anything in his vision. He just wants to rescue Penny. Charlie agrees that they shouldn't change anything, especially if his vision leads to getting them rescued from the Island. In the face of Charlie's helpfulness and solicitude, Desmond looks grim. It could be either the 47th rerun of Charlie getting speared or it could just be all that smoke he's inhaling from his pants. It starts to pour as the campers head out.
Desmond is getting saucy in the monastery. He is drunk and singing when the Main Monk busts him. The Main Monk points out that the wine fetches over a hundred quid per bottle and they've only bottled 108 cases this year. (Yes, he said 108, try not upset your new pacemaker, Mr. Conspiracy Theory.) Desmond snorts and says, "It's a good thing we've taken a vow of poverty then, eh?" The Main Monk points out that they've also taken a vow of charity. Desmond says "Right," and then chugs down some more of the wine before graciously passing the bottle over so the Main Monk can have a swig. The monk tells him that he doesn't think Desmond is cut out to be a monk. Maybe he could be a Trappist monk? Even if he has just had a few bad weeks? Can't he just do some penance? Or wear a cilice or something? The Main Monk replies, "I'm afraid you're beyond penance, Desmond." Desmond looks startled, "Brother Desmond, right?" The Main Monk shakes his head. Desmond asks if he is fired. The monk says yes, but Desmond does not accept. He heard the call! The Main Monk smiles and says God has bigger plans for him that don't include a life at the Abbey. Then he opines that Desmond has, "Spent too much time running away to realize what he may be running towards." Which is pretty darn meta for a wine-shilling monk. As the Main Monk stands up to leave, Desmond wants to know what he is supposed to do now. The monks suggests he climb every mountain, ford every stream, follow every rainbow, until he finds his dream.
