Casa Locke. Sawyer continues to bang on the metal door. Hurley leads Claire, a tiny bandage, and Aaron out from the bedroom. And then the metal door open and Ben walks out. There's a great bit where's face to face with Sawyer, who's blocking the way, and he calmly says, "Excuse me, James." I don't know why, but it was funny. Ben won't tell them what he was doing, but tells them that in one minute he's going to give the signal and he wants them to run as fast as possible away from the house. And then everything starts shaking. Ben looks out the window, and we see a huge stream of black smoke rushing out of the trees past the house. As it passes, he tells them to get outside and run like hell.
Outside, it's dark -- either because the sun set or because of Smokey, I can't be certain. In the trees, we see Smokey coiled up in a big knot and we can hear all kinds of sounds (screams, gunfire, metallic groans) and see flashes of light. A Boatie comes running out of the trees towards them, but a tendril of Smokey reaches out and drags him back. Hurley and Miles realize it's a good time to get out, and they lead the rest of the Losties in the other direction. Ben tells Locke that he'll catch up with him in the trees; but first, he wants to say goodbye to his daughter. And then the sounds of Smokey recede off in the distances as Ben walks over to Alex's body, closes her eyes, kisses her on the forehead, and sobs. Commercials.
Back at the beach, Daniel has rigged up the phone to broadcast Morse code. He taps out a message, and Jack asks him what he's saying. So Daniel speaks the words as he spells them out: "What happened to the doctor?" There's a long series of beeps in response. After it finishes, Daniel tells them, "Okay, they didn't exactly say what happened to the doctor, but your friends are okay and the helicopter's coming back in the morning." Kate looks relieved, but Bernard tells Jack, "He's lying. What the message said was 'What are you talking about? The doctor is fine.'" Oh, Daniel -- don't cross a ham radio geek. Jack asks why Daniel has been lying to them, and then grabs him by the shirt and asks him, "Were you ever going to take us off this island?" Daniel: "No." Jack doubles over in pain, but walks away before anyone can help him.
