Main Island; Camp Faucke: Kate is sitting in a bamboo stand, crying, when Faucke approaches her. Those bamboo stands always seemed to be a safe place to hide from Smokey, but it doesn't look like they keep out Faucke, more's the pity. Faucke tells Kate it's his fault Claire is so batshit insane. He told her that the Others took Aaron. He claims he wanted to give her an enemy to hate, to keep her going. When Kate revealed that she took Aaron, Claire was all jacked up and had to aim her fury somewhere. Kate says, "Very insightful, coming from a dead man." Faucke says, "Mmm, well, nobody's perfect." Hee. He apologizes to Kate again and thinks if she gives it time, it will be all right. He notes that he promised, before, to keep everyone safe. "That means you too, Kate." Kate changes the subject. "Where did Sawyer go?" Faucke, now standing, holds out his hand to Kate. "I'll show you." She nearly rolls her eyes at him, waits an awkward eternity, and then stands on her own.
Hydra Island: Sawyer goes along with Zoe, for a while, but when she starts asking too many questions (how many of there are you, how many guns,) he makes it clear he's not buying her act. He draws his weapon and aims at her. "You're good sweetheart, but you ain't that good." Zoe's all I totally am that good, but she's not. However, she does have armed reinforcements in the bush (dirty) to make up for her insufficiencies. At her whistle they appear and order Sawyer to drop his weapon and fall to the ground. Once he's on his knees he deadpans, "Take me to your leader."
Main Island; Abandoned Outrigger Beach: When Faucke sits in the sand, Kate reluctantly joins him as he points out Hydra Island and says that's where he sent Sawyer. And if Miles' "DIE... ALONE..." line wins the award for worst delivery, then Kate's, "You could have just told me you sent him to the island where we were locked in cages," wins the exposition fairy FAIL award. Faucke sees what she means, but he also wanted a chance to talk to her alone. First up, he wants to clarify one thing. "I am not a dead man." Secondly, he wants Kate to know that he knows what she's going through. "My mother was crazy. A long time ago, before I...looked like this, I had a mother, just like everyone. She was a very disturbed woman, and as a result of that, I had some growing pains -- problems that I'm still trying to work my way through -- problems that could have been avoided, had things been different." Kate's all and this is relevant to my life how, exactly? Faucke says, "Because now...Aaron...has a crazy mother, too. Kate stares at him, and nods her head almost imperceptibly.
