Craphole Island; Day: Jin hands Daniel the flask. He wets his hanky, again, to make like he's going to do something to help Charlotte, but he probably won't. Again. Charlotte says, "Why can't Daddy come with us?" So, do you think her Daddy is Ben? If so, could her Mommy be Annie? I know I threw that out sort of abruptly but it's just food for thought. Anyhow, Daniel tries to bring her back around, and Charlotte says, "You know what my mum would say about me marrying an American?" Daniel looks...er...still constipated. I don't know. A poster at the Buffista site noted that theirs is the chastest love she's ever seen. I have to agree. I can't figure it out, but I don't have to, because now Charlotte's bragging about knowing more about Ancient Carthage than Hannibal, himself. Locke says they have to get moving. Daniel wants them to carry Charlotte along, but Locke says that will just slow them down. Surprisingly, Sawyer's with Locke and adds, "The flashes are getting closer together. Maybe when your nose starts bleeding you'll realize we've gotta get out of Dodge, now." His voice softens as he adds that they'll come back for her as soon as they can.
Charlotte, lucid for a moment, tells them to go on without her, but Daniel refuses to leave her behind. There's yet another flash. When it concludes, Locke orders everyone to go, now. Charlotte's still with it, and tells Daniel that Locke is right. She then groans and leaves the present, and happily adds, "Oh, turn it up. I love Geronimo Jackson." When Juliet prompts him for a decision, Dan says he'll stay with Charlotte and they should go. Sawyer asks Locke if -- since they don't know when they are -- how do they know the Orchid will still be around. Locke has no clue. Back again, Charlotte says, "Look for the well. You'll find it at the well."
Sawyer looks at Charlotte with pity and fear. Softly, he says, "Yeah. We'll be sure to do that." They leave Charlotte to more of Daniel's love so chaste, he doesn't even let his hanky touch her face, and journey onward. Miles' nose bleeds some more along the way, but the trip is otherwise uneventful.
Arriving at the ruins of the Orchid, Locke proclaims that they're there. Juliet says, "Thank God. What are the odds that we would end up in the same time as this thing," which is the magic incantation for yet another flash. They're not only sentient -- they don't like a smartass, and so we FLASH in some direction, I assume way back, to a time when there was no Orchid. I'm pretty sure Sawyer buys my theory, because he turns to Juliet and says, "You just had to say something." Locke looks around, and seeming to catch sight of something he couldn't have possibly seen on account of all the JUNGLE around, runs through the thicket until he finds...the well. Miles wonders aloud how Charlotte knew it was there and we jump to...
