Sisters are screwing it up for themselves

Then she looks over and sees the crib, with the plane mobile hanging over top. "Go ahead, turn it on," says Ethan. Claire does so, and it plays "Catch A Falling Star." Claire seems quite perplexed, which probably isn't what Ethan's going for here. But someone off-screen calls his name, and he says he'll be right back. "Okay," says Claire, having some difficulty taking her eyes off the mobile.

So just outside the door, Ethan's getting chewed a new one, albeit in a stage whisper, by some guy whose face we can't see. "What the hell happened? You were supposed to make the list and then bring her in. Was I unclear?" Ethan protests that it wasn't his fault, and that they knew he wasn't on the plane, because they had a manifest. Claire glances over, and we see that it's Gruffy McScruffenbeard, only he's not scruffy or bearded at all. Still pretty gruff, though. He continues upbraiding Ethan: "What am I supposed to tell him? You know what he's going to do when he finds out. Dammit, Ethan!" He notices Claire watching them, and he reaches over to close the door. What is with their fascination for lists anyway? Is "making lists" one of The 7 Habits For Highly Effective Others?

More memory fragments. Nothing we haven't seen before. And Claire comes to back on the beach, standing in front of Sun, who's asking if she's all right. Kate strolls up, slinging a bag over her shoulder, asking if Claire's ready to go. Claire starts shushing Aaron, telling him not to cry and that she'll be back really soon to make he feel all better. She thanks Sun, who says okay. She and Kate walk off, Claire looking back at Sun with Aaron until Kate asks if she's all right. She says yes. However, Kate's got a gun, and that's when people tend to die. And Kate hasn't even seen the plane mobile yet.

Kate and Claire, walking through the jungle. "You're sure this is her trail?" asks Claire. "We started at the exact spot where we chased her off the beach," says Kate, which, if you ask me, ain't exactly a "yes." Claire asks what she knows about Rousseau, and the answer is not much, despite her having spent all that time together on their trip to the Black Rock. Kate says they talked about her ship crashing, her and her research team getting stranded. And then they, um, died. Claire wants to know how they died, so Kate changes the subject by saying that the trail ends here. Mainly because she doesn't want to have to tell Claire that Rousseau's team were killed, by Rousseau. She's forced to, though, after Claire presses. And then Rousseau shows up to explain about the infection that forced her to do it, which I'm sure is reassuring to hear from the crazy woman who thinks your son is likewise infected. Claire demands that Rousseau take her back to where she scratched Rousseau, and she yells a whole lot about how she remembers the room, and the medicine, and the blah blah blah, and take me there because my baby is sick! Rousseau probably wants as badly as I do for Claire to just SHUT UP already, so she says it's not far from here.
