So back at the Tailies' hard-labour fantasy camp, Sawyer must be thrilled that Kate wouldn't let him have a damn day off. He looks exhausted. Suddenly, the loudspeakers start blaring "compound breach!" and Danny gets all yelly on the walkie-talkie, wanting to know where "she" is. He also orders his men to put Sawyer and Kate on the ground. "If he moves, shoot him," he snaps, and confirms into the walkie-talkie that "they're here." I'm presuming he means Kate and Sawyer. He asks if "the doctor got out again," which piques Kate's interest, and he also says, "How the hell did she get over here?" Suddenly, as if in answer, one of the men guarding Kate and Sawyer gets knocked down with a rock to the back. The other one turns just in time to see Alex go all Dennis the Menace on his ass with a slingshot, and he gets a rock to the forehead. She yells for Sawyer and Kate to run, but they're a little confused. Or maybe they also realize that in the contest of many men with rifles versus teenage girl with a slingshot, the odds aren't heavy in her favor. Danny gets the drop on Alex (who likewise has her slingshot trained on him), and is all incredulous: "What the hell are you doing?" She yells that she wants to know what Danny did with "him," and that she wants to talk to Ben. Danny says, in soothing tones suitable for talking people down from ledges, that that's a great idea, but they should lower their weapons. "Where is he? Tell me!" she screams, but by now one of the other Tailies has grabbed her from behind. "Get her out of here," orders Danny, and as Alex is carried away, she yells at Kate: "Whatever they say, don't believe them! They're going to kill your boyfriend! Just like they killed mine!" Kate is too stunned even to yell, "We're just friends!" She looks over at Sawyer, who has a look on his face like, "boyfriend, huh?" He's like Michael Scott over Jan Levinson, man.
After commercials, Kate's back to breaking up rocks. She sadly watches Sawyer for a moment, then notices Juliet talking to Danny. Danny seems pissed about something, but that's pretty much his baseline, isn't it? After a moment, Juliet strolls over and offers a hood to Kate, politely asking Kate to put it on and come with her. Kate snaps, "You think I'm going to put a hood over my head 'cause you said 'please'?" Kate sounds like she's jockeyin' for a shockin'. "No, Kate, I think you're going to put a hood over your head because the man standing behind me, the one burning a hole in my back, that man is going to kill Sawyer." Sure enough, Danny's standing there glaring. Juliet says if Kate comes with her, there's something she can do that'll help save Sawyer's life. Kate looks over at Sawyer while the strings of Should I Try To Help Sawyer's Life kick in. Eventually, she agrees. Like she ever really had a choice.
