He says he was lying: "I would have done anything to get my friends out. And turning you people against each other was my best chance of creating chaos." Juliet should try a little harder to hide her surprised reaction.
The smile's gone from Isabel's face now; she looks pissed. I am actually scared of her (and yet still attracted. It's the damnedest thing). She gets up from her seat and walks around to the front of her desk, glaring at Jack. Even he has the good sense not to lol right now. "Why are you lying for her, Jack?" she practically hisses at him. Tom and Juliet seem just as interested in the answer. "I'd like to go back to my cage now," he says.
Slender legs in big clunky heels skulk into Jack's hut, where he stirs in his bed, covered in mosquito netting. He watches Achara get undressed and crawl into bed with him. "What time is it?" he says, sleepily. "It's late," she says, kissing him. He says she tastes salty, and she says she went for a swim in the ocean. "Washing the day off of you, huh?" he says. Jack, if you really think this stranger in Thailand is a hooker, I hope you've got more protection than mosquito netting. Also, DON'T SLEEP WITH HER. Achara's English is good enough that she understands the implications of what Jack's said. "Is there something you'd like to ask me, Jack?" He says that it would be nice, after a month of her coming and going (um, and coming?) whenever she wants, to find out something about her. She rolls off him and lies on her back. "There are things that happen here that you could never understand," she says. Well, that ought to satisfy his curiosity. Good job, Achara. "Like your gift?" guesses Jack. And she says, "Yes, like my gift." And they start making out, and roll off the bed, laughing. "Are you having fun with me, Jack?" He says he is. She tells him to stop asking questions then, and just have fun. Oh -- now I get what's going on here! Jack is the Lost viewership, and the dirty Thai prostitute is the show itself! Quit asking questions! Just have fun! There are things going on you couldn't possibly understand! And I'm not going to explain! Now shut up and let me screw you!
