We pick up right where we left off... a year ago. Kate is driving off as Jack yells that they have to go back to the island. But this time, Kate stops the car, backs up, gets out, and starts screaming at Jack: "We have to go back? We have to go back? Who do you think you are?!" She's mad because he's been calling her for two days, high as a kite, and then confronted her with an obituary for "Jeremy Bentham." Who is this, you ask? Hold on for a couple of hours and you'll find out. Kate continues: "When he came to me and I heard what he had to say, I knew he was crazy. But you? You believed him. Him, of all people." So, Jeremy Bentham is someone whose word should not be trusted. Doesn't ring a bell. Jack tells Kate that he believed Jeremy Bentham because he was told that was the only way he could keep Kate and Aaron safe. Kate slaps him. Not because that justification for believing Bentham didn't make any sense, but because she doesn't want him to say Aaron's name. Apparently, the little tyke is still missing Jack's crappy bed-time reading skills. Kate: "I spent the last three years trying to forget all the horrible things that happened on the day we left." And we spent the last three months waiting to see what those things were. Kate says there's no way she's going back. She gets in her car and drives off. In next season's finale, we'll see her do a u-turn and come back to yell at him some more.
Island. Jack and Sawyer trudge through the jungle. Sawyer asks if Jack's sure they're going the right way, and Jack notes that Frank said the soldiers were headed northeast. Sawyer's worried about Jack, who is still visibly bleeding around his stitches, but Jack claims he's fine. Just as Sawyer prepares a sarcastic rejoinder, Jack shuts him up -- they've arrived at the Orchid. Sawyer asks what the plan is. Jack starts to tell him when they hear a snap behind them. The whip around and level their guns at... Hurley, who is peeing on a bush. Well, at least he didn't have to worry about peeing his pants when the guns came out. Hurley is like a little puppy, excited that Sawyer came to get him. He's less happy to see Jack. I guess leading the movement to go with Locke instead of Jack has left some bad blood between them. Sawyer asks where "he" is. Cut to the three of them walking into the Orchid, where Locke is looking around with a perplexed expression on his face. Jack and Locke exchange awkward greetings.
