He catches up with Sayid at the airplane where Boone and Locke found the heroin, like this episode is some sort of twelve stations of the death of Boone or something, and Sayid says they're going to take a break. Charlie protests, but Sayid says that Charlie's going to collapse very soon, so they need to rest a moment. Charlie looks at the plane. "Is this where Boone fell?" he asks, and Sayid tells him the plane was up higher, and explains that it apparently came from Nigeria with two men dressed as priests, smuggling heroin. He lobs a statue of the Virgin Mary Charlie's way, and it hits the ground and breaks open. "All right," says Sayid, picking up his pack again. "Now we go. No time to fight inner demons." Come to think of it, he might not have said that last part, but Charlie stands there for like five hours looking at the broken statue and all the baggies of sweet, sweet heroin within.
The dynamite dingbats slowly trudge through the jungle, Kate gingerly making her way across a stream. Hurley makes conversation by asking Locke what he thinks is in the hatch, and Locke says, "What do you think is in it?" and Hurley goes off on TV dinners, like if you're going to fantasize about food, how sad to fantasize about TV dinners and Twinkies like Hurley does here. "Twinkies keep for like eight thousand years, man," and they chuckle, and Locke says he likes Twinkies too, only you have to guess that Hurley likes Twinkies a lot more than Locke does. So Hurley asks Locke what he really thinks is inside, and Locke says. "Hope. I think hope is inside." Hope? Who the hell is Hope?
Jack and Kate are leading the procession, and nobody's really saying much. Suddenly, there's a screech. It sounds like it's part of the soundtrack, but then we see this stock shot of a falcon or a hawk or something lifting up from a tree and flying away, which looks like it came from some totally other movie or television show. "Whoever named this place 'dark territory'? Genius," says Hurley. Onward, then. Jack and Kate pause for a moment, hearing some sort of rattle. Through the trees, a little black cloud of smoke zips by, like it's something's trail. Jack looks at Kate. "Yeah, I saw it. We gotta get out of here," she says. Jack and Kate start jogging, and Hurley follows. We hear another screech, and the flapping of wings -- and then Lostzilla's trademark tree uprooting begins, along with the metallic clank and roar, like maybe the island is being defended by Tom Waits records. Kate breaks into a full-on run, and you're yelling, "Put the knapsack down, remember?" and then you see Jack slip his off. Locke hasn't moved. He does take off his knapsack, and sets it down very carefully. And then he walks toward the noise. Jack glances back just in time to Locke, and he's all, "Locke! What are you doing?" and then he goes back after Locke, which to me is just as foolish.
