Temple: The Templars march our peeps right up to the temple building. Out comes some more Templars, including a Horace-lite character (per imdb.com he's Lennon; John Hawkes) and a Japanese man (per imdb.com he's Dogen; Hiroyuki Sanada). Their names aren't given on screen, but we'll be calling them Lennon (who wears John Lennon-esque wire-frame specs) and Yoko (who is Mr. Bossypants). Thanks to reader Gary for the Yoko inspiration. Now, to simplify things -- Yoko does all the talking, but he talks in Japanese. There's no subtitles when he speaks, but Lennon translates everything. So when you see me write, "Lennon translates," assume he's translating something Yoko just said.
Lennon translates: "Who are you." Cindy steps forward and says she knows who they are. "They were on the first plane -- Oceanic 815, along with me." So, between her "first plane" remark (Ajira 316 being the second) and Jacob's comment to Hurley that he died an hour before their conversation, I think it's safe to assume that the year is 2007 in the Island Reality. Yoko says something. Lennon looks to him and asks, "You sure?" Yoko turns his back. Lennon nods to the Templars. "Shoot 'em." They take aim. Everyone starts yelling things like, "Wait," and "No," like you do when a bunch of Ren Faire Hippies are going to shoot you. Finally, Hurley puts on his thinking cap. "JACOB SENT US." Lennon translates: "What did you just say?" Hurley repeats himself and adds, "He said you would help our friend." Lennon translates: "Prove it." Hurley hems and haws. Yoko says something. Hurley yells and points. "HE GAVE ME THAT GUITAR CASE!" A Templar lays it at Yoko's feet. Lennon translates: "Did you look inside it?" Hurley shifts his eyes. "Maybe?" Yoko opens the case and finds a big, wooden...ankh. Now, I totally want an ankh-shaped guitar. Yoko lifts up the ankh, inspects it, and raises both it, and a knee. Hurley shouts out, "DUDE!" but he's too late. Crack. Yoko breaks the ankh over his knee. He reaches inside the shaft and pulls out a note and reads. Lennon translates: "What are your names?" "Hugo. Hugo Reyes." He nods at his companions. "Tell him." In turn, each character says his/her name. Lennon points at Sayid and translates: "What about him." Jack answers, "Sayid Jarrah." Yoko says something else and stalks off toward the temple. Lennon tells the Templars to pick up Sayid and get him to the spring. It's then that Hurley comes to life. "Hey. Excuse me. I carried that case across the ocean, and like...through time. I wanna know what that paper says." While Yoko stops in the temple doorway, Lennon walks back to Hurley. "The paper said that if your friend there dies, we're all in a lot of trouble." He scurries back to Yoko's side and we cut to commercial.
