Back in the Sayid/Ben jail, Locke enters bearing a pitcher and two glasses. He tells Sayid that he brought some iced tea, thinking that Sayid might be thirsty. Ben: "I'm thirsty." No iced tea for Ben. Locke pours a glass for himself and leaves the rest for Sayid. He apologizes for all the ambushing and kidnapping, noting that he had no idea how many people Sayid would have with him. Sayid asks where Kate and Miles are. Locke tells him that Kate is with Sawyer (but not necessarily "with" Sawyer), and that Miles is somewhere else. He asked Miles questions, but of course he didn't answer. And Charlotte hasn't provided any additional information. Sayid suggests that Locke give Charlotte to him. He agrees that the Boaties are lying, but he thinks the best way to get at the truth is for Sayid to get on the boat. He'll only be able to do that if he brings Charlotte back with him, and then he can find out what the Boaties really want. Locke tells him that Ben thinks he knows what they want, since he has a spy on the boat. Ben refuses to give up the name, and Sayid tells Locke, "Excuse me, but the day I start trusting him is the day I would have sold my soul." Locke asks why he should give up Charlotte for nothing. Sayid: "Oh, I think you misunderstood me. I never expected you to give her to me for nothing."
Flash-forward! Sayid and Elsa snuggle in post-coital bliss. She suggests getting dressed, because sooner or later they'll have to get out of bed. When he asks why they would ever do that, she starts fishing for more info about his mysterious job. She probes some more, revealing that she does know he's one of the Oceanic Six (because she mentions the crash as a subject he doesn't want to discuss), and tells him that she wants to know more about his life because she's in love with him. The potentially awkward moment turns steamy as they start making out. He promises to tell her everything. And then her beeper goes off. She gets out of bed and looks at the beeper and mentions the name of a hotel she has to get to. She starts looking for her clothes, and Sayid tells her not to go to the hotel. He wants her to leave Berlin so she can avoid questions about what is going to happen. As he tells her this, he hops out of bed and puts on his pants. And a shirt. Oh, cruel world. Elsa realizes that he's going to do something to her boss, and that he was using her to get close to him. She's crying and runs to the bathroom. Sayid tells her he has to kill her boss because his name is on a list, a list he got from his boss. She asks who his boss is, but he won't tell her. And then she pulls a gun and shoots him. Fierce! Sayid falls back onto the bed with blood coming out of his shoulder. She dials her phone and speaks in German, telling the person on the other line that he paged her late and that Sayid is never going to give up the name now that she's shot him. Sayid sees his own gun just kind of hanging in the pocket of his coat, draped over a chair. Not very well hidden there, Secret Agent Man. Elsa's tears were completely fake by the way; she's now dispassionately talking about killing Sayid. She hangs up the phone, and Sayid throws something at the mirror in the bathroom. She reenters the bedroom, but he has already grabbed the gun, and he shoots her twice. She falls down, breathing hard. He crawls over to her, arriving just as she dies. Tears in his eyes, he tenderly closes her eyes, and then touches the bracelet she's wearing. It's similar, but not identical, to the one he took from Naomi at the beginning of the episode.
