Charlie gets down off the tree and wants to know what the "bloody hell" Eko did. "I did nothing," says Eko. Charlie points out that most people, when they see a creature made of swirling black smoke, they run. Most people would also discuss it in greater detail from time to time too. "I was not afraid of it," says Eko, and Charlie points out that thing kills people. Eko just wants to know if Charlie saw the plane, which he did, about a kilometer that way. Yay, metric!
Down in the hatch, Michael's furtively glancing around, making sure no one's there, before going into the computer room, like he's playing Doom on the office computer. He also checks his watch, and I'm going to guess he took Kate's shift because he wanted to be there at the same time as when he heard from Supposedly Walt before. He sits down at the Appleocalypse II and types, but there's nothing on the screen. "Come on, come on. Where are you?" he mutters. Then, on the screen: "Dad?" Michael: "Are you okay?" Computer: "Yes. Are you alone?" "Yes." "Can't talk long. They're coming back soon." "Where are you?" "You need to com--" And that's all we see, because we switch to a shot of Michael reading the screen.
And then Jack comes in. Michael's fingers twitch over the keys. They exchange pleasantries, and Jack asks if he's down here alone. Well, no, Jack; you're with him. Michael says Hurley was also supposed to be down here, but he's apparently running late. Behind Jack, the counter flips from forty-seven to forty-six minutes. I thought last episode that Michael had stopped the timer, but I was wrong; I forgot that the counter doesn't display seconds until the last few minutes. Hey, I never said I was perfect. No, wait; I probably did. So now you know that I'm perfect except for that one minor detail I got wrong about the timer.
So Jack pulls over a chair, and sits down, but he can't see the computer screen from where he's sitting. Then he says no one's forgotten about Walt. Michael's all surprised, and Jack haltingly explains that as soon as they can, they're going to figure out a way to "go out and bring him back," and I'm not sure how much more of a plan they need than "go out and bring him back," myself. Are they waiting until everyone finishes ninja training? Come to think of it, I could handle waiting a while longer if people actually were in ninja training. Anyway, Michael thanks him, and glances at the computer screen. Jack asks if he's okay. Michael says he's fine. Jack gets up and walks around, glancing at the computer screen -- which is blank. It looks like the monitor is still on. It didn't look like Michael made a move to erase anything, so I don't know if we're supposed to assume that he did manage to turn it off, or if we're supposed to speculate that he's hallucinating the whole thing. Jack claps a hand on Michael's shoulder: "Well, I'll leave you to it, then." Michael thanks him, and presumably starts holding his breath re: the Lostaways' Operation Get Walt Back Now.
