At the moment, though, Jin does look free, as he rides the raft with a smile on his face. His blissful reverie is interrupted by Walt, who points out small mountains on the far side of the island. "How does a place this big never get discovered?" wonders Mercutio, which is begging the question as to whether the place actually hasn't been discovered, but that doesn't matter. Sawyer says they could build a hell of a resort here, like Sawyer is some kind of resort genius, thinking people would want to come to a tropical island like this. "You build your resort. I'm happy to say goodbye to this place forever," says Mercutio. And Walt asks about the people they've left behind, and Mercutio says he hopes they can save them. And for some reason Sawyer is singing all over Mercutio and Walt's lines, like all of sudden Sawyer likes to burst into song, and it's a good thing he's singing Bob Marley, and he and Mercutio bond over it. Ebony and ivory, rafting together in perfect harmony. Even Jin has this look on his face like, "Dude, sing it. Marley. Righteous," so I guess he's into island rhythms as well. Too bad Sayid didn't rig them up a CD player.
Back on the beach, Sun is still staring out at the water, like maybe someone should tell her that the raft is going to need a little more time to produce some results. Behind her, Shannon is struggling to drag a suitcase over the sand with another bag slung over her shoulder, while carrying another smaller bag and holding Vincent's leash. Her struggles attract the attention of Sir Galahad himself, Sayid, who comes over and instead of helping her he asks why she needs so much stuff. "Don't you have a hike to lead?" she asks snottily, and drops one of her bags, clothes spilling out. Sayid's gathering them up and notices they're Boone's clothes (T-shirt that says "Urban Hymns Tour 1998"). Shannon says she needs them, and then breaks down very sobbingly and tearingly. She's a fine actress, I just don't know why we need to see this, again. She's all, "It's too much!" what with her brother/lover dead and now "the others" are coming. Sayid strokes her face and tells her it won't be too much if he helps her carry her bags, which oughta shut her cry-hole.
