In a field of palm trees, Sawyer, Miles, Claire, and Aaron are walking back to the beach. Well, Aaron's not walking. Lazy. Miles is being nice to Claire, asking her how she's feeling in the aftermath of having her house blown up around her. Sawyer tells Miles to back off, explaining that all this chat is slowing them down. And then Miles has a vision or hears some voices or something. If you listen closely, you can hear Alex's and Rousseau's voices from two episodes ago, when Rousseau got shot. Sawyer notices that Miles is standing still, and asks him what's up. Miles asks who Danielle and Karl are. And then Miles digs around in the dirt and finds Rousseau and Karl buried there. I'm sad to say that Rousseau is most definitely dead. If you'll excuse me, I have to go put on my black armband, which I will be wearing for the next month. Sawyer asks how Miles knew the bodies were there, and asks if the other Boaties killed them. Miles tells them that he "didn't sign up for this," (indicating that "this" is murder). No, he just signed up for extortion. Claire just wants to get away from the dead bodies.
Jack is taking some pills and drinking some water in his shelter. Juliet answers and grills him about his symptoms until he agrees to let her examine him to see if he has appendicitis. He does, but the appendix has not yet ruptured. Juliet tells him it's time for an appendectomy. Yay! Commercials.
Beach. Juliet wants to Sun to go to the medical station and retrieve a bunch of supplies she'll need to perform the surgery. Sun's happy to make the trip, but she doesn't actually know how to identify the medical equipment Juliet is asking for. Daniel offers to help, based on his knowledge of surgical instruments obtained while performing autopsies on rats. Sun and Jin both say they don't want Daniel coming with them because they don't trust him. Charlotte tells Daniel that she knew the Losties wouldn't trust them, so they might as well just give up. Daniel tells her that her bad attitude is why the Losties don't trust them. I think it might have more to do with the two of them keeping obvious secrets and lying all the time. But what do I know? Daniel pleads with Juliet, and she gives him the list of instruments she needs. And then gives Jin a gun, telling him to shoot either of them if they try to run away. Why exactly are they letting Charlotte go? Are you really going to let both of your hostages wander off into the jungle? And then Juliet enlists Kate and a bunch of other nameless Losties to create a sterile area where they will perform the surgery. Kate wonders why they don't just bring Jack to the medical station; Juliet tells her that he probably wouldn't survive the trip. Only probably? I say give it a shot.
