Jack wakes up in his cage on Alcatraz, and is surprised to see a bunch of people milling about outside, looking at him. "What?" yells Jack. Nobody says anything. And then Cindy -- former stewardess for Oceanic -- steps forward and is all, "Hey, Jack!" He doesn't recognize her at first, like he would ever forget someone who brought him booze. After a moment, though, he recalls her as the stewardess, and Cindy reminds him what her name is. He asks her what she's doing with them; he thought she was captured. "They're not, um... it's not that simple," she says, which means they haven't quite worked things out in the writers' room yet. Jack wants to know what they're doing, and specifically, what Cindy's doing. He's yelling at her by this point. And Cindy seems weirdly surprised by Jack's anger -- like she thought he'd be all happy to see her. "We're here to watch, Jack," she says. "Watch what?" he asks, and she doesn't answer, as Emma -- remember the little girl Emma, from the tail section? -- strolls up and whispers in Cindy's ear, and then stands there smiling. "She wants to know how Ana-Lucia's doing," says Cindy brightly. Jack's all, are you fucking kidding me? And again, Cindy's confused by how pissed he is. This genuine bafflement on the part of the Others over the Lostaways' reaction to their mistreatment better have a good explanation -- oh, who am I kidding. Jack yells, "If you've got something to watch, Cindy, go watch it! Go!" Cindy leaves with Emma, and the other Others shuffle off. And there's Zach, who gives his teddy bear to Emma and then stares at Jack before leaving too. I think one of them yelled back, "Yeah, well, I hear Heroes is pretty good, so whatever, Jack," but I can't be sure.
