Island; 1977: Sayid is out of the bus, leaning his back against the bumper as he sits on the ground and bleeds to death. Hurley gives him water as he says everything will be fine. "When Jack changes the future. Or the past. One of those." Looking on, Miles tells Jin, "I don't think your buddy's going to make it." But Jin disagrees. Just then, Jack and Kate return from spying on the Swan site, tell the gang that something just happened and Jack says it's time for him to go. Sayid tells him the bomb is all set. "Remember, be careful. It's rigged to explode on impact." That would be just the magical incantation I needed to make sure I fell hard, on my back, about 6 inches away from all my friends. Good luck, Jackie-boy. Sayid reminds Jack that the Jack Daniels plan states he must "get the bomb as close as possible to the source of electro-magnets." No, really. That's what he said. There's a slight chance he said electro-magnism, but that's not even a word. My spellcheck's all pissed off at me for using it, and everything. I shouldn't pick on Sayid, he's dying. Jack counters that the Jack Daniels plan will work, and it will save him. Sayid says the saddest words I've ever heard on this show: "Nothing can save me." Nobody argues with him, which is even sadder. Kate helps Jack put on his custom made nuclear-device-toting backpack. He looks at her, and a bolder man would have kissed her, but Jack just nods and heads off through the jungle on his lonely quest. He meets up with Juliet who, oh my word, I just realized is wearing a red shirt. Frak. Sawyer and Jack pass one another, and with as much machismo as he can muster, Jack spits, "See you in Los Angeles." I expect Sawyer to snark at him, but instead, he makes a boo-boo kitty face which leaves me laughing so hard I have to hit the pause button, which turns out to be unnecessary, because all that happens after that is Jack walking along through the jungle. At least that's all that happens until we jump to...
