I would like to point out that after the ensuing commercial break, we'll be at 59 minutes, meaning that everything up until happened within the regular episode time allotment. So the upcoming "bonus" minutes had better be good.
Day 45. Cindy and Libby are fiddling with a net on the beach. Cindy glances around, sees a body washing in with the tide. "Libby," she says, and Libby checks it out. They make their way across the sand and roll Jin over onto his back, where he starts coughing up water. "Get Ana-Lucia. Quick!" says Libby. Oh, and Cindy, before you go, would you mind taking a close look at Jin's face and checking it against your amazing stewardess's passenger-face memory? Because we know Jin was on the plane. So if you could confirm that before getting Ana-"Hang 'Em High"-Lucia involved, you might save a few people some unnecessary and painful beatings.
Cut to a blindfolded Jin, tied to a tree. Cindy, you suck. Eko pulls off the blindfold and asks Jin who he is and where he comes from, and Jin responds in Korean. And this time, nobody but Ana-Lucia thinks he's one of the Others. And while they argue about it, Jin manages to break free and go running through the bushes to the beach, where he finds Michael and Sawyer, and warns them just in time for them to get hit with some serious Eko lumber.
They're dragged through the jungle and dumped into Guantana-lucia Bay. Ana-Lucia tells Eko to hit her, so she's more believable when she goes undercover as a prison snitch. "You think they're okay? Let's find out," she says. Eko belts her. Is that because he's the biggest, or did the rest of the Tailaways hold a raffle for the privilege? Slow-motion montage of all that ensues. It's slow motion! The four "bonus" minutes isn't even four full minutes! What kind of bullshit is this?
Day 46. We need a mon-taaaagggee... Our heroes climb out, we revisit the bunker, we see Bernard.
Day 47. Jungle march. Michael! Ana-Lucia! Eko! Sawyer fall down!
Day 48. We pick up right we last saw the Tailaways, looking around frantically for Cindy. Suddenly, there's motion in the bushes, and the rather trigger-happy Ana-Lucia shoots Shannon in the gut. Can we now all agree that Shannon is dead and that Ana-Lucia is the one who shot her? At least those of us who don't need Maggie Grace herself to actually die before we believe it?
