Sayid and Charlie are ripping through the jungle, having a conversation about why Sayid thinks Rousseau's headed to the black smoke -- but it seems to me that if they have the breath to talk to each other like this, they could be running harder. But anyway, Sayid essentially figures that Rousseau's looking for the others, because they took her baby all those years ago, "and now she believes she has something they want." Anyway, they've found the place where Sayid has stashed the guns, and he's opening the case. "She's making a trade?" deduces Charlie brilliantly, and calls Rousseau insane, and Sayid charitably points out that Rousseau lost her baby -- like Claire just did. He hands Charlie a gun, but before letting go of it gives him a lecture on how this isn't about revenge and that Charlie shouldn't make it personal. Charlie's all "yeah yeah, gimme the piece." So Sun and Claire come running up, and I hate to say it but Charlie and Sayid are going to have to haul a whole lot more ass than that if they're to catch Rousseau. Being caught by a hysterical woman who recently gave birth doesn't exactly bode well. Not to mention, NICE HIDING SPOT FOR THE GUNS, Sayid. Claire's absolutely losing her shit, which we can cut her some slack for, and she's insisting she come with them, and hitting Charlie as he gently does his best to tell her that it's not such a great idea. (Not to mention that if she keeps hitting him, he's likely to bust a cap in her ass.) So she breaks down in sobs, and she says, "Bring him back, Charlie. Bring Aaron back." And Charlie says, "Aaron?" like IF YOU THINK HARD ENOUGH YOU MIGHT FIGURE OUT WHO AARON IS, CHARLIE. GOD! "I will get him back. I promise," he says. We pan up to the strangely-unaffected-by-wind column of black smoke again. Commercials.
ABC is some kind of creative genius when it comes to thinking up ways to screw their audience. They run their shows one to three minutes past the top of the hour, and now Good Morning America has a "secret scene" that the producers wanted viewers to see, but couldn't fit into the episode. That's right. They're telling you that not one precious second of tonight's two-hour gorilla of an episode could have been cut. It's all gold.
Sydney airport. Mercutio and Walt are sitting in a waiting area, Walt playing on his GameBoy. Mercutio asks if he wants something to eat. Walt ignores him. "I guess that's a no, then," says Mercutio. Walt ignores him. A moment later, Mercutio says that if Walt's worried about Vincent, not to sweat it; dogs fly in luggage compartments all the time. Walt ignores him. So this isn't so much about Vincent as it is Walt being a brat. But considering that his mom just died and the only father he's known is giving him up so that he now has to leave, I think I'll give him a pass. "I gotta call work," lies Mercutio, and points over to a phone bank and says he'll be over there. He tells Walt not to go anywhere, and gets up. Walt breaks concentration briefly to watch Mercutio leave.
