Charlie sneaks away from the Grotto, only to come face to face with Locke at the base of a cliff. Charlie looks impressively bee-stung. Not his lips, though. Just his whole face. "Listen to me, you old git," Charlie says, the closed captioning translating "git" as "geek" again, "I'm going into the jungle." Locke stares impassively. "A man has a right to some privacy!" Charlie adds. "Just give it to me," Locke replies, holding out his hand. He knows that Charlie is running low; if he gives up the drugs now, at least it'll be his choice. Charlie bristles, but Locke pushes on, telling him he can help with the detox. "Do you want your guitar?" Locke asks. Charlie looks like he's ready to cry. "More than you know," he says. Locke tells him that the island may give Charlie what he's looking for. "But you have to give the island something," he adds. We see Charlie's resolve crumble. In the jungle. He hands over the heroin, and Locke says, "Look up." Charlie groans and says, "You're not going to ask me to pray or something." Locke points to the cliff face above them; Charlie's guitar is halfway up the cliff, nestled in some tree branches.
Broody Beach. Jack approaches a sad and pensive Kate, telling her it's almost time to go, but Kate says she can't do it. "I don't want to be Eve," she says. "Someone else can stay here, keep a lookout, wait for rescue," Jack pleads. "Why does it have to be you?" After a silence, Jack asks Kate how she got to be this way. "What did you do?" he asks. "You had your chance to find out," Kate snaps. Her sleeves are rolled way up and reveal, as her tank top did last episode, that she has extremely muscular arms. Hopefully she can keep lifting weights while stuck on an island. Maybe she can find a dumbbell. In the jungle. So why all the emotional wreckage this episode? Why is this such a big deal? Again, there seems to be a lot of information that should have helped us make sense of this scene that simply never appeared on screen. They really tried to cover a lot of island-centric plot this episode; jammed into 44 minutes alongside all the flashbacks to Koreastralia, the compressed plot developments don't quite track. Jack leaves, telling Kate she knows where to find him. "You know where to find me too," she whispers, to no one.
