Locke is depressed. We know this because he is eating alone in a darkened one-room apartment IN FRONT OF THE TELEVISION. What could drive a man to such extremes? Obviously he is seconds away from doing himself in. This Hopper-esque tableau is interrupted by a knock on the door. Locke opens the door to a clean-cut young man who asks if his name is John Locke. Locke points at his no solicitors sign and starts to close the door. The young man explains that he is not a solicitor. He is a Jehovah's Witness. Just kidding! His name is Peter Talbot, and he needs to talk to Locke about his mother, who is in danger. Locke says that he has the wrong John Locke and starts to shut the door again. Peter asks him how many kidneys he has. That puts a kibosh on the door shutting as Locke stares at the kid. Inside the apartment, Locke is mixing up some instant coffee. Apparently depressed people don't bother to buy whole bean. Quick, get the Starbucks marketing department on this untapped demographic! Peter is explaining that his mother agreed to marry the guy just two months out of the gate. Love at first sight. His name is Adam Seward. He is a retired computer entrepreneur from Ontario. Something about him made Peter nervous, and he had to check him out. What does this have to do with Locke? Well, it has to do the fact that Locke donated a kidney to him back when his name was Anthony Cooper. Peter shows Locke a photo and, sure enough, it's Locke's scheming, con artist, kidney-stealing father. Locke does not look happy. No he does not. Peter continues by saying that all he could find about Anthony Cooper were his medical records. He figures that if someone gave the guy a kidney, how bad could the guy be? Locke runs his hand through his non-existent hair, swallows, and flat out lies to the kid. He claims that it was an anonymous donation and that he never met him. Peter doesn't believe it and asks if he is sure. Yeah, Locke is sure. Surely a big fat liar! Way to wuss out. If you had a therapist, she would be really disappointed in you.
After nightfall, Jack and Juliet walk slowly up to Jack's cabin. They are giggling and throwing some serious body language around. Locke is watching them from the bushes. Kate grabs the binoculars from his hands and stares in disgust. It's all bit pervy if you ask me. They regroup, and Locke sets a plan of attack that makes Kate go in first. It's better if she is the first one he sees. Yeah, ladies first! Especially when heading into enemy territory. They put their hands together, yell, "Go Team Spirit!," and run off in separate directions. Kate rambos up to the door of the cabin with Sayid guarding her back. She tries the door handle and seems surprised to find it unlocked. She creeps down the hallway, gun at the ready, and walks towards the lilting and dulcet tones of the piano that are echoing through the halls. She drops her weapon when she notices that Jack is playing the melancholy tune. As the song ends, he finally notices her. He looks surprised. Then he looks happy. Finally, he looks miffed. (Someone's been studying his Facial Expression 101 textbook again!) He stands up and tells her to get out of there right now. She looks hurt. He tells her to get out because They are watching him. He points at the giant video camera mounted to the ceiling that is focused right on her. Get out right now. She doesn't listen. She is explaining that they are not leaving without him when the Others bust in, guns ablazin', and point them at her head. Jack tells them not to hurt her. The Others ignore this and Kate yells "OW!" as they throw her face first onto the ground. They bring Sayid in with his arms tied behind his back. The Others stand over their prisoners and demand to know who else is with them. Kate has apparently decided that her best option is to yell for Jack. A lot. Even though he is standing right next to her. Jaa-ck! Jack! Jaaa-ck! Jack! Jack! Jaaa-ck! Jaa-ck! Jack! Jaaa-ck! Jack! Jack! Jaaa-ck! Jack tells her to answer the question. Kate stares at Sayid and then says that they are alone. That it is just them. Sayid looks relieved, but probably just because she stopped yelling for Jack.
