That night, a shadowy figure gathers brush and kindling together in the grass. From the shoes and the hoodie and the ring, we can tell it's Charlie, but since the shots seem to purposely avoid showing his face, I wondered if we were supposed to figure out that it wasn't actually Charlie but then it's revealed to be Charlie a few moments later anyway, so I'm not exactly sure what the cinematic sleight-of-hand is all about.
Anyway, Charlie lights his kindling on fire, and stomps out of the brush past Sayid. Is Sayid even on the show anymore? Did he piss off the producers or something? Or are he and Lost on a break and is he going to turn up on someone else's show before getting back together with Lost and apologizing for doing the other show? Sayid asks Charlie for a hand with some Rube Goldberg-esque contraption that he's fiddling with. "Now's not a good time, Sayid," snarls Charlie. Wow, snubbed by Charlie. Sayid shrugs off the slight, and then notices that someone has digitally inserted a bright square of burning brush into the jungle, which you'd really think he'd have noticed already. "Fire!" he shouts, and starts running through the camp. And everybody's awake, apparently, but nobody saw this fire until just now. So they gather up their buckets and containers and special fire-retardant tarps and other such firefighting accoutrements, and the Lostaway Volunteer Fire Brigade springs into action. Locke unnecessarily tells Claire to stay with Aaron. At least, you'd have thought it was unnecessary, but Claire strolls so far away from Aaron that she might as well have been fighting the fire herself, allowing Charlie a moment to stroll out from the brush with his hoodie up (more sinister-looking!) and stare at Aaron for a long moment until we go into flashback.
