Locke's still hanging around, and Jack's all, don't tell me you believe this crap. "You think that makes sense? Pushing a button? You're just going to take his word for it?" says Jack, and Locke says, "His word is all we have, Jack," whatever that's supposed to mean. Desmond says they don't have to take his word for it: "Watch the film." Jack's all, what? "Bookcase, top shelf, behind Turn of the Screw," says Desmond. Sure -- that, he knows the precise location of. Important jar of crucial computer-fixing parts required to stave off apocalypse? That he has to hunt for. Jack just stares at him, while Locke heads for the bookcase. Jack follows. Finding Turn of the Screw, he throws it on the floor (ow! The unreliable narrator is getting trampled!) and reaches behind, pulling out a metal film canister with the Dharma logo on it. On the side is a label: "Orientation." Hence the episode title!
Back on the beach, Hurley's playing with Vincent. Oh, so the dog came back? And Shannon is NOT WATCHING HIM again? Good to know. Also, it's morning now? How long has everybody been down the hatch? He spots Sayid carting some luggage across the sand. Looks like the Lostaways are setting back up on the beach. Hurley scurries -- and you might not think a man his size can scurry, but that is what he does -- over to help. "Dude, I didn't think we were going to get through the night. And I wasn't even here for the...baby-stealing part." Sayid dryly assures him it was quite exciting. Hurley says it's great that things are finally returning to "normalness." Huh? It's the day after he went on an expedition to get dynamite that got Arzt blowed up real good, and the reason for the dynamite was so they could blow open a hatch to use as shelter from the Others, who may or not still be coming. And Jack and Locke had a big fight about it, and now you'd think Jack, Locke, and Kate are nowhere to be found. And things are returning to "normalness," according to Hurley. I suppose the only reason he says that is so he can be all annoyed when Kate comes running up screaming Sayid's name, thus throwing everything "back" into chaos. "Sayid, we need your help," she says.
Back in the Others' pits, Sawyer seems to have forgotten that Jin speaks no English, or at least no more English than is necessary for pivotal scenes or show-ending cliffhangers, because he's asking Jin what the Others did to him, and how many there are, that sort of thing. Jin is at least able to communicate that he was blindfolded, so he can't be of much help. "There could be a hundred of them up there!" says Sawyer. This is where you need a Bruce Willis-type action hero to smirk and say, "My kind of odds."
