We fade right back in on a semi-conscious Jack being dragged outside by a guy in a red turban and brown tunic and another brown tunic guy. They and all the forthcoming new others will be referred to as "Templars," because they are at the temple, and I saw "Templars" used on our forums (thanks, y'all) and it works, okay? I can't even describe the Templars'...fashion sense. It's Ren Faire meets Woodstock meeting pre-war European peasant. The Templars push Jack toward Kate, Hurley, Jin, and poor still-dying Sayid, who are already outside, surrounded by a bunch of other Templars. Soon, they pause at the edge of a small pond to take in the sight before them. Hurley finally says, "Guess we found the temple."Commercial.
L.A. Reality: At customs, when the agent asks him if he has anything to declare, Mars says, "Just a murderer." Soon, they're on their way. Katie has to go to the bathroom, and although at first, Mars tells her to hold it, she turns her pretty lady act on him. "Edward, please." He takes her right into the ladies room, and after ensuring it's empty, he lets her shut the stall door. That's right. He wouldn't let her use utensils to eat her lasagna, but he lets her shut the stall door. Kate takes a pen (JACK'S) out of her pocket, and unscrews it. The spring inside falls to the floor. Kate only lets this stop her for a second, though. She then goes about trying to pick the lock on her shackles. Edward rinses his face in the sink and then turns back to the stall. When he steps on the spring, he bends down to pick it up. Immediately, he tells Kate that her time is up. She's still picking away at the lock, so she tells him she's not finished and needs a minute. Finally, he leans up against the door: "Austen, I swear to God -- you don't open this door -- I'm coming in..." Kate kicks the stall door right into his face. She then knees him in the groin, grabs his head, and bounces it off the counter. He falls to the floor unconscious. She strips his jacket off him and covers her cuffs with it as two other women enter the rest room. Kate makes like she was just attacked by a random stranger and is terribly frazzled. "I just have to get out of here." She takes off, but the two women are right behind her and head off to security to report the fearsome attacker in the ladies lounge. Why Kate didn't grab the handcuff keys, I'll never know. It is interesting though, that she didn't give a good damn about the Halliburton case, when that (and the toy airplane inside) was all she could think about, back in the day.
