Assam and Sayid are walking down a street in Sydney. Assam is unsure whether he can be a suicide bomber, and Sayid talks him into it. At one point, Sayid tells Assam that "innocent lives will be lost, in service of a greater good." I'm just going to have to pretend that all of them are speaking in Arabic, because they're speaking loudly enough that every passerby can hear what they're saying. Sayid convinces Assam that if he loved his dead wife, he will go kill some other people. He does this in part by talking about how much pain he is in because of the woman he lost. He does not mention that the woman he lost is not actually dead. And then Assam asks Sayid if he'll join him in the suicide bombing. Sayid tells him that he will. It's TWoP's first ever Homoerotic Suicide Bombing -- or HoSuBo, if you will.
Back on Craphole Island, Shannon is going through Boone's bag. She finds a picture of the two of them in his wallet. Sayid walks up to her and asks her to take a walk with him. As they walk along, he tells her that Locke showed him the plane and that he believes that Boone's death was an accident. She wants to know why Locke lied about Boone falling off a cliff, and Sayid is not sure. Shannon is pissed that Sayid didn't whack Locke for her.
On the beach, Mercutio, Walt, and Jin work on the raft. Well, Walt's not really working -- instead, he's asking all sorts of questions that reveal his fear that the raft is a death trap. And I don't mean to be gross, but did they eat his dog? 'Cause we haven't seen him in quite a while. Charlie and a still-crying Turniphead arrive, and Charlie asks Michael for advice on quieting the baby. Michael's only advice is to walk with him. Charlie also tries to ask Jin if he knows where Sun is, because he needs her help with the baby. Charlie is the only person on the island stupid enough to continue to try to have complex conversations with Jin. What a moron. Sawyer arrives, actually doing some work to help construct the raft (by gathering materials, it seems), and tells Charlie to shut the baby up. As soon as Sawyer speaks, the baby becomes silent. And as soon as he stops speaking, the baby starts crying again. Even Charlie isn't so stupid that he doesn't make the connection pretty damn fast, and he ends up following along behind Sawyer, trying to get him to keep speaking.
