Kate shakes her head in disgust and wants to know what did they do to him. Jack says that they haven't done anything to him. He told her not to come back for him. Kate didn't think he meant it. This gets old Waterworks Jack going, and he blinks back tears and completely ruins his manly football-playing facade. Kate gets up from the pool table, grabs his hand, then both hands, and then gets on her knees (get your mind out of the gutter!) and asks, "What did they do to you Jack?" He says that he made a deal with them. They are going to let him go. She looks confused. Go? Go where? He says home. When? First thing in the morning. He can leave and go get help -- it's their best chance. Kate can't believe that Jack would trust them. Frankly, neither can I. Jack says that he trusts them because Kate told him to. Oh, right. It's her fault. Saint Jack, your halo is officially revoked. Kate looks incredibly confused. Jack explains that he had to trust them when Kate asked him to save Sawyer's life. Kate looks upset and demands to know what they told him. Oh I don't know, Kate, maybe that you tossed some pity sex at Sawyer? Maybe they told him that? Are you going to deny it? 'Cause they have that throwdown on tape and, I don't know how to tell you this, but it is ALL over the Internet. At this point, Juliet barges in like the possessive fourth grade girlfriend that she is and says, "We need to go." Jack says he will be right there. Juliet looks pissy and says she will meet him behind the dining hall in five minutes or else she is totally giving him his JV jacket back. As she shuts the door, Jack gets up and says to Kate, "I asked you not to come back for me, and I wish you hadn't." He then bends over and whispers in her ear, "I will come back for you." Then he leaves her. Handcuffed and crying and potentially facing death. Yeah, Kate, he's a winner.
Locke and his Love Bug pull into a parking lot in Flashback Place. He pulls out a bag of groceries and makes his way across the lot only to be stopped by two cops. They want to know if he knows a guy named Peter Talbot. Locke reveals himself to be a really crap liar by looking shiftily from side to side, sweating, wiping his hands on his pants, rocking back and forth, and saying, "Um, no. I don't believe I do." The guy cop describes Peter Talbot, but Locke still says no, he doesn't know him. The girl cop says maybe it would help if I told you he was in your apartment a few days ago? Locke claims the kid was a solicitor, and the cop laughs. Peter Talbot's family is worth approximately two hundred million dollars, so what exactly was he selling? And why would your name and number be in his pocket? Locke ignores that question and instead asks why they were looking through Peter Talbot's pockets? Because Peter Talbot is dead.
