Back in his Craphole Island cage, Sawyer's examining his pulse monitor and feeling his chest. Meanwhile, Kate, who's changed into a floral top and jeans, looks around her cage. She calls across to Sawyer that she thinks she can squeeze out through the bars on the top, because they're spaced farther apart up there. This alarms Sawyer, because it'll make his heart explode. And if that's going to happen, it might as well because she's changing clothes again instead. He tells her not to bother, which surprises her. "I think we should just chill here awhile, get the lay of the land," he says. She stares at him, mouth actually hanging open.
Back in Jack's cage, this supposedly broken intercom is again crackling with static and voices. All I can make out is the word "X-rays." Juliet opens the door on the other side of the partitioned room and urgently walks in, wearing bloodstained scrubs. Jack demands to know what they did with Sawyer. She says they didn't do anything to him. "I heard him yelling, you've got blood on your clothes. What did you do to him?" She tells him it's not Sawyer's blood. "It's the blood of a woman who's dying. Jack, I -- I need your help." Jack thinks about this, presumably wondering if there's any way he could use this to get some booze.
Over by the bear cages, klaxons blare through the loudspeaker, as Juliet and some Others lead a hooded person by. Kate recognizes Jack's clothes, tattoo, or biceps, or all three. "It's Jack!" she yells over at Sawyer, and the two of them shout at him (Kate yelling, "Jack!" and Sawyer yelling, "Doc!") but they're inaudible above the blaring alarm. The scream louder, and Jack's head turns towards them, but he's whisked off by the Others.
Inside some compound, Ben asks Juliet if she's lost her mind to bring him in there. Juliet points out that Jack's a doctor, and can help, as she pulls Jack's hood off. Ben starts to say, "Well, that's not why we -- " but is silenced by Juliet asking if Ben wants her to die. Jack and Juliet look through some swinging doors into what appears to be a rudimentary operating room, Colleen on a table, Danny standing over her. Jack asks what happened. "Gunshot wound to the abdomen," says Juliet, as they scrub up. Jack notices some chest and spine X-rays hanging on an illuminated... I don't know what it's called, that light thing that doctors put X-rays on. He stares at them. "Those aren't hers," says Juliet. They mean nothing to me, but I'm not a spinal surgeon. Jack appears to notice something, however. But he doesn't say anything, and they head into the operating room.
