Kate doesn't look like she's so keen on that idea. She was on her way to prison in 2004. She asks Daniel how he plans to destroy the energy. Daniel says he's going to detonate a hydrogen bomb. Oh, wow. Since "Jughead," I've been wondering if that was how the series was going to end. I didn't expect it to come up again this season. Huh. Kate and Jack make oh, he's completely crazy faces at each other, and it's time for one last commercial break.
2007; Marina Medical Center, Long Beach: Penny's surprised to learn Eloise's son is Daniel Faraday, because Daniel's the one who sent Des to find Eloise in L.A. Eloise says she came to apologize to Penny. "Your husband has become a casualty in a conflict that's bigger than him, that's bigger than any of us." Casualty? CASUALTY? Penny's reaction is pretty much the same. She asks Eloise if Des will be okay. Eloise says, "I don't know. For the first time in a long time, I don't know what's going to happen next." Ooooh. Hmmm. Nice. Right then a nurse comes out to tell Pen that Des is out of surgery, in recovery and is doing fine. She tells Penny to come with her and the other nurse will watch her son. Oh GET OUT! She's going and she's leaving little Charlie with the nurse, while Eloise is there?! Does she want him to get stolen and taken to Craphole? Oh wait, Hawking's leaving, too. Frisk her before she gets out the door, folks.
Desmond's Recovery Room: Desmond's right arm is in a sling and he's pale, but he looks pretty good for a guy who just got shot in the milk bottle. Penny says hi with a smile, then her face grows serious. "I thought I'd lost you." Desmond shakes his head no. "I promised you, Penny. I promised you I'd never leave you again." Awww. A single tear rolls down Penny's cheek, and they kiss. Normally, I'd be all over this reunion, but I'm really worried about their baby, even if they're not.
