Flash-forward. Press conference in a large hangar. Admiral Caine is briefing the press on what happened. The story is that the plane crashed, the ocean current swept the survivors to a tiny island called Membata. Eventually, a typhoon washed up the wreckage of a boat, and on day 108 the survivors set sail and made their way to a larger island called Sumba (all of this in the Indonesian archipelago). As she speaks, the Oceanic Six are sitting at a table on the stage. We see a photo of the six of them coming ashore on Sumba, with some local fisherman helping them out. The reporters ask some questions. Jack claims that when the plane crashed, some of them made it off before it went down, and they used seat cushions (which really can be used as a flotation device) to stay afloat while the current carried them to the island. It took a day for them to wash ashore, and by then there were only eight left. One reporter asks them how it is that they look so healthy. Hurley: "Is that directed at me, dude?" And then reporter asks him about his money; he tells her he doesn't want any of it back. Another reporter asks Sun a question in Korean. Sun translates for the crowd, noting that the reporter asked if Sun's husband died on the island. Sun says he didn't -- he never made it off the plane. A reporter asks Kate about her baby. Kate claims Aaron is just over five weeks old. The reporter puts it together that she would have been about six months pregnant when she was arrested in Australia. And really, this is where I expect their story to fall apart, because the Australian cops involved then have to know that she was not visibly pregnant when the Marshall took her away. Finally, a reporter asks Sayid if it's possible there are any other survivors. The survivors all exchange portentous looks. They seem to have learned some lessons on how to conspire from Daniel and Charlotte. Sayid says that there are no other survivors. By the way, except for the Korean reporter, only two reporters asked all of those questions. The other reporters in the room all suck.
