Island; 2007: Locke and the band of buggered arrive at the ruins of the Lost-aways' beach camp. He tells everyone to take a break. "Considering what I have planned for ya, you're going to need it." Locke calls Ben's attention to the old hatch "quarantine" door and notes that's where he and Ben first met. Isn't it romantic?

While Ben lets this sink in, Locke adds, "So the question is, Ben, why the hell wouldn't you want to kill Jacob?"

When she spots Aaron's cradle (lovingly made by John Locke, long ago and far away) still lying on its side, she stops to right it, and finds Charlie's Drive-Shaft ring nestled inside the now dirty blanket. Our girl's all about the bling, so she can't resist feeling it up. We jump to...
