The leader grabs the gun from Young Eko's hands. "What's your name, boy?" he yells. "Young Eko," he says, quietly. The leader laughs. "Look at Mr. Young Eko," he says. "No hesitation. A born killer." He puts his arm around Young Eko's shoulder, rips the cross from Young Eko's neck, and hurls it to the ground. "You won't need that anymore," he says, leading Young Eko to the truck. The other boy picks the cross up and watches Young Eko drive off.
I don't know about you, but I have no idea how they're going to connect Young Eko and the cross and the Nigerian thugs to the dead bodies and the cross in the Nigerian drug plane.
Back on Craphole Island, Eko's carving words into his stick, which already has "hateth" and "Colosians [sic]" and "Titus" and "Revelations [sic]" carved into it. He seems to be really concentrating, and is startled to be interrupted by Claire, who's standing there behind him, holding Aaron, so maybe it's Charlie's day off. "What are you writing?" she asks. Eko considers the question. "Things I need to remember," he says. Email passwords and PINs, I guess. Claire could tell him that she's not exactly sure how crappy they had it over on their side of the island, but over here at Swan Station, they've got paper. "You mind if I sit?" she says, and he says go ahead. "So you're Eko, huh?" she says, and she introduces herself and Aaron. "Aaron? The brother of Moses?" he asks. No, I'm pretty sure it's a different Aaron. And then Claire does a little mini standup routine about the pressure of living up to Moses. Even Eko's all "whatever" about it. Then he asks why she chose that name, and Claire says she just liked it. "Aaron was a great man. Moses had great difficulty speaking, so it was Aaron who spoke for him," says Eko. She just liked the name, Eko. Claire says that Eko should talk to Charlie, who won't admit that he's religious, even though he totes around a statue of the Virgin Mary wherever he goes, the statue that he says he found on the island. That gets Eko's attention, and he asks to see the statue. He has a look on his face like Claire just turned into a zombie and started munching on Aaron's brains. Note to Lost: if I see that happen during sweeps, you're welcome. And also, I want a cheque.
