On the raft, Kate is holding Aaron. Jack asks how the baby is, and despite the fact that he hasn't eaten in like two days, Kate says he's fine. Kate thinks it's a miracle that they survived. Hurley: "I can't believe he did it." Kate: "Who did what?" Hurley: "Locke. He moved the island." Jack: "No he didn't." Hurley: "Well really? 'Cause one minute it was there and the next it was gone. So unless we, like, overlooked it dude, that's exactly what he did. But you got another explanation, man, I'd love to hear it." Sorry, that just deserved to be quoted in full. Because Jack is being a huge dumb-ass. And then Frank sees the lights of a boat in the distance. I hope it's not more pirates. They all cry out, and the boat shines a light in their direction. And then Jack tells them, "We're gonna have to lie." They're confused, but he now agrees with Locke that they need to lie about everything that happened. Jack tells them that if they point out that the plane found in the ocean was a fake, whoever planted it will come after them. Not to mention continuing to try to find the island and kill everyone on it. Kate thinks and tells Jack that there's no way they can pull it off. Jack tells them just to let him do all the talking. Because he's so good under pressure.
The boat gets closer, and we can hear voices speaking Portuguese. The raft pulls up to the side of the boat, and we can see that it's named the Searcher. A sailor sticks his head over the side and then shouts out (in Portuguese) for Miss Widmore. Desmond looks like he's hoping for something that can't possibly be real because the disappointment would be too much. But it is real, as Penny appears on an upper deck and tells the sailor to throw a rope to the raft and pull them around to the stairs. Desmond shouts her name and then starts climbing a canvas ladder on the side of the boat. She runs down to the main deck and arrives just as Desmond climbs over the side of the boat. They approach each other slowly, each clearly fearing that this can't be real. And then... remember how I said Sawyer kissed the hell out of Kate? I was wrong. He only kissed the heck out of her. Because the kiss between Desmond and Penny leaves all other kisses in the dust. They're both crying when he asks her how she found him. Penny: "Your phone call. I have a tracking station." My question is how did she get from her apartment in London to a boat in the middle of the Pacific in the two days (or so) since Desmond called her? Desmond: "I love you, Penny. And I'll never leave you again." I really hope that turns out to be true.
