Kate walks into Sawyer's bedroom. He sits up, startled, only I assume he hangs out shirtless like this just for these sorts of encounters. She sits down on the bed, and he apologizes for not being able to do anything about Locke. "I wanted him to think that you fooled me too. No sense in him not trusting both of us." Kate says Locke wants her gone by tomorrow. "What, he...banished you?" says an incredulous Sawyer. "Well, I unbanish you," he adds, and pulls off Kate's shoes, and I think he thinks "unbanish" means "undress," saying she can stay right there. "It's my house," he says. We hear a toilet flush. "Me and Montezuma's house," amends Sawyer, who I suppose doesn't have bowel movements of his own. "I'll keep you safe," he says, all stubbly tenderness, and they start making out.
Nighttime at the beach, and Charlotte and Daniel are sitting across from each other, three face-down playing cards on a makeshift table between them. "Time. What do you remember?" Daniel haltingly says queen of diamonds, six of clubs, and, especially struggling on the last one, the "red ten of hearts." Charlotte flips the cards over. Daniel's right on the first two, but the last card is the three of spades. "It's two out of three. It's not bad. It's progress," says Charlotte. I hate to tell Charlie Babbitt here that she and Raymond are never going to crack Vegas with two out of three. Daniel's a lot more skeptical that this qualifies as progress, but their discussion is interrupted by Juliet and Jack.
Jack says he's been calling the boat all day, and he wants to know why he isn't getting an answer. "We're here, how would we know?" points out Charlotte. I'm surprised it's taken Jack this long to ask them. Jack doesn't believe there's just one line on the boat. Charlotte glances at Daniel, then says there is an emergency line. Juliet hands her the phone. "It's an emergency," she says.
Charlotte reluctantly takes the phone. "Put it on speaker," says Jack. Charlotte does. We hear the phone ring a couple of times, and then Regina picks up, wanting to know why Charlotte's calling on this number. Minkowski wasn't answering, says Charlotte, adding that the Lostaways want to talk to their friends. Regina says, "What friends?" Ruh-roh. Charlotte's all, you know, the friends that Frank took over in the helicopter last night. "We thought the helicopter was with you," says Regina. Everyone looks stunned. Jack looks stunned and angry. Stangry. He starts pacing, setting his jaw. I think I might owe Locke a Coke, he's thinking.
