Casa Locke. Sawyer is patting down Miles while Locke asks him how many Boaties there are. Miles thinks there are around six, but he's not too sure. He didn't realize the guys on the boat were killers -- he was told they were just security, to escort Ben back to the mainland after he was captured. Ben: "Well, Miles, sounds like you're not going to collect your 3.2 million dollars." Ben tells Miles that he has no intention of using the radio to speak with the Boaties; Miles tells him that the Boaties have a hostage. Ben thinks the Boaties have made a big mistake, because "every single one of my people is prepared to die in service to this island." Even Alex? Upon hearing that the hostage is his daughter, Ben takes the radio and says hello. A voice asks if he's Ben; when he confirms that he is, the voice introduces himself as Keamy (and also claims to work for Widmore). Keamy asks Ben to look out the east window of the house. Keamy's standing there alone. He tells Ben to surrender and nobody else in the house will be harmed. Ben tells Keamy that after he surrenders, he knows Keamy will kill everyone else on the island. Keamy: "What kind of guy do you think I am?" Ben responds with a mini-bio of Keamy, including his service in the army and his work for morally reprehensible mercenaries. He knows exactly what kind of guy Keamy is. Keamy whistles, and one of the other Boaties brings Alex out of the trees and shoves her to her knees next to Keamy. Keamy tells Ben to get out of the house right away or he's going to kill Alex. Ben thinks for a few seconds and then offers a counterproposal, which is for Keamy and his pals to go away and never come back. Keamy ratchets up the pressure by giving the radio to Alex so she can plead with Ben to save her. Keamy tells Ben that he has ten seconds. As Keamy counts down, Ben tells her that Alex isn't his daughter and he really doesn't care what happens to her. "I'm not coming out of this house, so if you want to kill her, go ahead and do..." And then Keamy shoots Alex in the head. Keamy walks away, and Ben looks outraged. Commercials.
