Cindy McLennan: A | Grade It Now!
Your Mother's An Other?!

Radzinsky and the Good Squad burst into the Love Shack. Radzinsky hollers for LaFleur and asks where the hell he's been. Sawyer tells him to "Take it easy, Stu," then asks what's going on. Radazinsky holds up his hand. "I just got shot by a physicist." I love the way he says that, as if getting shot by a physicist is worse than getting shot by, let's say a grocer or a lawyer. He also tells Sawyer the new recruits are helping the physicist. "We've been infiltrated!" Dirty. Sawyer tells him to calm down, but then Phil starts kicking up a ruckus from the closet. Radzinsky finds him in there all tied up, then turns his gun on Sawyer and Juliet, ordering them to get down on the ground, now. And we cut to...

The Jungle Road to Camp Richard: Jack, Kate, and Daniel stop for a drink at a creek along the way, and Jack notices Daniel take out his gun. He comments on him needing a gun to talk to his mother. You don't know his mother, Jack. Daniel says, "You don't know my mother." See? Jack cuts to the chase. He wants to know why Dan says Eloise was wrong to tell Jack to come back to Craphole. You need a reason other than that it's Craphole? Daniel sits, so Jack joins him, and Kate comes in closer, too. Where the boys are... The next bit is all transcribed, because while doing so was a lot of typing, it required way less thinking than following Dan's line of reasoning.

Daniel says, "In about four hours, the Dharma folks at the Swan work site--they're gonna drill into the ground and accidentally tap into a massive pocket of energy." Like Hurley's Hot Pockets! "The result of the release of this energy would be catastrophic." Again, like Hot Pockets! "So in order to contain it, they're gonna have to cement the entire area in, like Chernobyl. And this containment -- the place they built over it, I believe you called it the hatch? The Swan Hatch? Because of this one accident, these people are gonna spend the next 20 years keeping that energy at bay by pressing a button -- a button that your friend Desmond will one day fail to push, and that will cause your plane, Oceanic 815, to crash on this island. And because your plane crashed, a freighter will be sent to this island -- a freighter I was on and Charlotte was on and so forth. This entire chain of events... it's gonna start happening this afternoon. But... we can change that. I studied Relativistic Physics my entire life. One thing emerged over and over: can't change the past. Can't do it. Whatever happened, happened. All right?" All right, already, Daniel. "But then I finally realized I had been spending so much time focused on the constants; I forgot about the variables. Do you know what the variables in these equations are, Jack? [...] Us. We're the variables. People. We think. We reason. We make choices. We have free will. We can change our destiny. I think I can negate that energy under the Swan. I think I can destroy it. If I can, then that hatch will never be built, and your plane -- your plane will land, just like it's supposed to, in Los Angeles."
