The brothers sit down in the pews, and Yemi asks why Eko is here. "I have come to help you. I have some merchandise that I need to get out of the country. I would like to use one of your church relief flights to transport it." Church relief, Eko? But you don't even believe in Jebus! Yemi's not fooled; he knows that "merchandise" means "drugs." But Eko concocts some story about how it's not his normal business, and he's moving the drugs out of Nigeria so they can't be used by their people. "And the money -- you'll have all the money to buy your vaccine. God has given us this opportunity; we should not turn our back on it." This is a new one on me: trying to claim that the drug deal is a God-given opportunity.
Not surprisingly, Yemi's not having it. "God did not bring you here, Eko. Your own greed did." Yemi says he'll always love Eko, but he won't help him. He stands, says it was good to see his brother, and leaves Eko sitting there smoldering.
Back on Craphole Island, Kate's giving Sawyer a haircut. It's really boring and nothing happens, and it's supposed to prove that Sawyer is no longer the guy everyone loves to hate (so he doesn't have to be belligerent for belligerent's sake, as Kate says), as Hurley strolls by and says that he's glad Sawyer's back. "Yo yourself, Pillsbury," says Sawyer under his breath. See, I don't know if Sawyer's being so much "belligerent" as he's being "a dick."
Michael strolls up and asks Kate if he can take her hatch shift later on. Kate's surprised he wants it, but seems to understand when Michael says it'll help take his mind off things, so she agrees. Michael's about to go when he pauses a moment and says to Sawyer, "Glad you're okay, man." Sawyer acknowledges it, and looks like he's thinking about how nice it is to be liked, and then growls at Kate not to say anything. What, just because you and Mike were practically making out just now?
Back in the jungle, Charlie's announcing that it's time to take a break, and…aw, no, he's getting out his works. Eko says they just had a break, but Charlie ignores him and drinks some water. And then here comes the whining: Charlie proceeds to blame his brother for his own drug problem, saying that he was a good person, an altar boy. He admits that he knew what was in the statue, but that doesn't mean he needs what was inside of it. And what has to be some kind of commentary on how painful it is to listen to Charlie, ONCE AGAIN in this episode someone he's blabbering to notices something more interesting behind him. In this case, it's the parachute in the trees that Boone and Locke found. Eko looks at the ground underneath, and finds the body. "Is that a priest?" asks Charlie, spying the collar. Eko crouches down, steels himself, and rips open the corpse's shirt. Nothing. Then he looks at the skull, sees a gold tooth. "You know that guy?" says Charlie, which is a completely plausible response. "Yes, this man saved my life," says Eko. Of course, after a day of listening to Charlie whining, Eko might be wishing Goldie hadn't bothered.
So we're back from commercial, and Eko's kneeling, praying over Goldie's body, and Charlie STILL WON'T SHUT UP: "He saved your life, huh? Sure, that makes sense. He takes off in a plane in Nigeria -- we're out in the middle of the South Pacific -- that makes all the sense in the world." I can understand his frustration, given that up until now, everything on the island makes perfect sense. Then Charlie picks up Eko's stick, sees the Bible scratchings, and puts it together with the dead priest (well, "priest" anyway), jumping to the conclusion that Eko is also a priest. Eko doesn't say anything. I like how Eko hasn't known Charlie very long but has already realized that the best way to deal with him is to ignore him.
