An agitated Locke gets up, grabs his gun, and tosses Sawyer a flashlight. "Whatever Miles has to say to Ben, he can say to me."
They run through the jungle to the boathouse, but, no surprise, Miles is already gone. Since Locke knew Kate knew where Miles was, it would have made much more sense to guard Ben, wouldn't it?
Anyway, Kate is, at that very moment, breaking into Locke's house, Miles in tow; his hands are still tied together. They head down to the basement, where Kate uses her gun as a key for the padlock on Ben's cell. She opens the door. Ben looks up. "You got one minute. Go," says Kate. "Zep?" says Miles. "Detective Sing?" says Ben. Miles asks Kate for some privacy, and her response is "Fifty-five seconds!" So Miles asks Ben if he knows who he is and who he works for. The answer is yes on both counts. "Then you know he's put a lot of time and energy into finding you." Ben stares at him, and Miles continues. "So now I found you. And I can tell him exactly where you are. Or I can lie and tell him you were already dead." The catch is that Option B is going to cost Ben $3.2 million. Ben, outraged, wants to know why not $3.3 million or $3.4 million. Well, he's not greedy. Miles doesn't answer. Ben wants to know what makes Miles think Ben even has access to that kind of money. "Do not treat me like I'm one of them!" yells Miles, gesturing towards Kate. "Like I don't know who you are! Or what you can do!" Ben points out that Charlotte has seen him, and Miles says he'll take care of Charlotte, and Ben has two days to come up with the money. Ben notes that his prison cell doesn't exactly have an ATM, so Miles gives him one week, and Kate shoves Miles out of the cell, telling him his time's up, and throws him against the wall. "You got your meeting, now I want my answer," she says. He tells her that they got her name when she called the freighter, adding that they know about her and everyone else on the 815 manifest. "Your name is Katherine Anne Austen. You're wanted for murder, fraud, arson, a whole bunch of other stuff I can't remember. You're a fugitive. Got caught in Australia, and the feds were bringing you back. So yeah, we know." He advises her to stay on the island: "Who knows, maybe you didn't survive the crash." Pissed, Kate starts shoving Miles back up the stairs, only to be greeted by Locke, pointing a gun. He tells her to go back to her house. "John, this has nothing to do with you," she begins, and he yells at her to go back to her house. Kate looks at Sawyer, standing behind Locke. Sawyer pointedly shakes his head, almost imperceptibly. Kate casts a look back at Miles, then stomps to the top of the stairs and past Locke and Sawyer.
