An obedient boy, Miles slows it down to a walk, passes the pool and heads off toward the vending machine. He stops about 10 feet in front of it, seeming confused. As well he should. If this is the mid 80s, I don't think that quarter is going to get him a Coke. Miles turns his head and has a vision. He sees a man's arm lying on the floor, next to a remote control, some food, and a used napkin. We flash back to Miles' face and then to a full shot of the grey haired man. Back to Miles -- his eyes scan the row of apartment doors across the way then zoom in on Apartment #4. No one has to remind him not to run; he makes his approach at tortoise-like speed. He rests his hand on the door for a moment before pulling it back quickly as though it were hot. Looking down, he sees a white, ceramic rabbit. Its ears lie flat and inside the left one is an etching of the infinity symbol -- ∞ -- or the number 8 on its side. Raise your right hand if you're earwormed with Schoolhouse Rock. Now keep it there, and raise your left hand if you're simultaneously earwormed with Anya's Bunnies, Bunnies, It Must Be Bunnies! Now wave 'em in the air like you just don't care because my kids are home, and I've got a recap to finish, people.
Wee Miles picks up the bunny to get the key hidden underneath. When I was growing up, we "hid" our key in the mailbox. Don't worry. Only we, and our entire neighborhood, knew where we kept it. Our security was even tighter than you'd think. That hidden key was a skeleton key. And when we'd lose it, my father would get another skeleton key from his magical garage and file it this way and that, until it opened our high tech door. (I'm not that old, but our house was.) Miles picks up the regular key and opens the door to a dark apartment. Meanwhile, back in the unit she's suddenly desperate to rent, Lara Chang Straume writes out a check. The good people at Lostpedia seem to have found visual evidence that the date on the check is March 16, 1985, which at once makes me long for HDTV and takes me way back before HDTV existed, but only because I'm a bit preoccupied. When she hears her son cry out for help, Lara throws down her pen and runs out of the apartment, and past unit 104, 'til she gets to unit 4, which is just weird, because that's not how building numbers usually work and the complex isn't all that big. Plus as we'll later learn, she seems to have been viewing apartment 7. Anyhow, Lara and Trevor run into unit 4 and stop cold when they see a man's body lying on the floor. Trevor says, "Oh God, Mr. Vonner," and bends down to check the body for signs of life.Meanwhile, Lara asks Miles what happened and what he was doing in there.
