And all I can say is THANK GOD Sawyer doesn't make her kiss him or shine his shoes or whatever the hell, as we cut to Sawyer handing over everything he's got, asking how the accident happened. Kate tells him that Boone fell off a cliff while he and Locke were hunting boar. "The boar they never seem to get," he growls, and maybe someone could point out that zero boar is also exactly how much Sawyer has brought to the lostaways' dinner table. He asks if Kate needs anything else, and offers to come back with her. "There's already too many cooks," she says, and it seems to me that there was actually one cook and three slack-jawed gawkers, but we could argue semantics all day.
Back at the 4077th, Jack's doing his best to treat Boone's wounds as Sun helps and Hurley and some extra close off the area with the netting that Jack sent him for. "He needs blood," says Jack. "A transfusion." Sun doesn't know how Jack plans to do that, but Jack says he'll figure something out. For now he's going to dress the leg. He looks beat. Sun tells him she can do it, and tells Jack to get some air. He hesitates, then finally goes.
If the point of taking a break is to relax for a moment, that's totally defeated by bumping into Charlie, who asks about a million questions like "how is he?" and "where's Locke?" and "what happened?" and "whatever happened to Lostzilla? And Rose? And the 'others'?" and all kinds of questions that Jack doesn't have the answers to. He finally snaps at Charlie when he asks where Shannon is, who Charlie reminds Jack for some reason is Boone's sister, and Jack yells that he doesn't know.
Back at the wedding rehearsal, Silverman is introducing "the future Mrs. Jack Shepherd," and everyone claps, and how weird that he didn't even say her name. He gives her the microphone, and she makes a weird joke about needing a new microphone, because it sounds like this one's been drinking, and I have no idea what she means by that and it's not helped by the fact that she sounds exactly like Ana Gasteyer as Bobbi Moughan-Culp in that old SNL sketch with the dorky singing music teachers. And then she tells this story about being in a car accident two years ago, flipping over the centre divider into oncoming traffic and getting hit head-on by an SUV. "My back was broken," she says, like, here's a cheery little story for the wedding rehearsal. The whole time, the camera's been focused on Jack, until now, and Jack's fiancée is an attractive blonde woman, who's staring at Jack like a cult member. "They all said it was inoperable. And then there was Jack. And he promised that he would fix me. Because that's the kind of guy he is. Because you are the most committed man I've ever known. Because you fixed me. I will dance at our wedding." And this is all lovely and everything, but I can't help but wonder why Jack is marrying what appears to be some type of android or possibly cyborg. Then she calls Jack her "hero" and I'm starting to get really creeped out.
