Back in Hydra station, Jack's apparently done the surgery. He's watching Ben from the observation window when Juliet comes in and walks up the steps to the deck. She asks if he was able to get the tumor out. He says he was, and she'll want to do a biopsy and see if it's malignant. "So what now? I just go back to my cell?" Yeah, pretty much, says Juliet: "Until they figure out what to do with you." Jack snorts at her saying "they" instead of "we." Then he asks what Ben said to her that made her want to save his life. Juliet, gazing down on Ben, smiles a little and says, "It doesn't really matter what he said." "It matters to me," says Jack quietly, standing up. "After everything that I have been put through, you owe me an answer. I want to know what he said." Juliet says nothing, just stares straight ahead, hoping her flashback will provide the answer. Usually the final flashbacks wind up posing more questions, but maybe this time it'll be different, hey?
Juliet's still sobbing in the morgue. Footsteps approach, and someone says, "Tissue?" and lays down a little Kleenex pocket pack in front of her. "Thanks," says Juliet, glancing up, and we see that the Kleenex-profferer is Ethan, dressed smartly in shirt and tie, which is the nicest we've ever seen him (although he does look an awful lot heavier than he did before Charlie killed him -- island life must have been good for him). Juliet wipes her nose and looks at Ethan again, who is still staring at her. "Have we met?" she says, not remembering that she saw him at her sister's hospice or wherever she was.
Ethan doesn't answer, but Alpert strolls up and says hello. Juliet's surprised to see him here. But sadly not surprised enough to be more freaked out than she is. "I'm so sorry for your loss," he says. She asks what he's doing here. "I saw what happened on the news, and your office said you were down here." Red flag, Juliet! Red flag! He says he wanted to express his condolences in person before going back to Portland. Then he introduces Ethan, one of his "colleagues." Ethan takes a break from staring at her like he's Randy from My Name Is Earl to say it's a pleasure to meet her.
