Elsewhere on the beach, Daniel pulls his journal out of his pack. Charlotte asks him what's wrong, and he tells her that if the chopper is going to the Orchid, they must be using the secondary protocol. She doesn't know what that means. He flips through his journal and comes to a page with a bunch of formulas, the words "spacelike factors," and a drawing of a Dharma symbol with the words "The Orchid" written next to it. He tells her that they have to get off the island right away. Credits.
Daylight, in the jungle. Jack and Kate are trudging along, following the tracking on the satellite phone. He thinks that they're getting close, and she suggests they take a break. As she gets some water out of her pack, she notices blood on his shirt around his stitches. He tells her it's normal, and that he's not bleeding. I think it would actually be pretty normal for him to be bleeding. She tells him that she knows he's lying because he looks her dead in the eye. They hear a sound in the trees and pull their guns. It's Miles, followed closely by Sawyer and Aaron. Kate and Jack look shocked to see them, and Kate asks where Claire is. Sawyer: "We lost her." And it's kind of like one of those jokes about a doctor who always says the wrong thing (like, "your mother has gone to a better place," when he means that your mother has been sent to a better hospital), because what he means is that she wandered off into the jungle, not that she's dead. (That we know of.) Sawyer and Miles did spend a day looking for her. And yet somehow the baby is not starving. There's all kinds of mutual exposition -- Jack tells Sawyer about the chopper flying by, and Sawyer tells Jack about the mercenaries who killed a bunch of people. Sawyer thinks they should stay away from the chopper, but Jack thinks it's their only way off the island. They're arguing, and now the baby starts crying. So Kate takes him, because she's so maternal. Jack and his enormous ego think that he's responsible for Sayid and Desmond since he put them on the chopper, so he has to try to find them. Jack tries to send the other back to the beach, but Kate thinks it's stupid for him to go alone. Jack tells her to take care of the baby. Noble Sawyer tells Jack that he doesn't get to die alone, and follows him off into the trees.
