Back by the campfire, Alex is quite reluctant, and pleads with the other Other there to do it, and he finally agrees. He takes Kate with him, which is great for Alex, because now she gets to catch up on all the gossip. "How's Claire? Did she have the baby? Is it okay? Is it a boy or a girl?" Michael just stares at her, the way you might if you were bound and gagged and one of your captors was chatting with you like you're meeting for coffee. And also that one of the captors knows about your pregnant friend. And that you can't answer questions anyway BECAUSE YOU ARE GAGGED.
The Three Amigos relinquish their weapons and get Kate back. Over at the fire, Zeke strolls up with the sack full of the weapons and announces that Mike's friends are going home. "Gave him up," he says. He glances at Alex, gives her a look. She turns to Michael, apologizes, and then clonks him in the head with the butt of her rifle. So that's where he learned how to do that.
Today, Michael sits on the beach, petting Vincent. I hope he's not thinking about taking Eko's story too literally.
Over in Sawyer's tent, he and Jack are pulling the guns out of Sawyer's hidden box. Sawyer's got a bottle of booze too, that he shakes in Jack's direction. Jack ignores the alcohol, like it's been a long season for Matthew Fox and he just can't wait for the break so he can't even stay in character and have a drink? "Here I was thinking the Irish drink when somebody dies," says Sawyer, and he takes a swig. Jack says he's not Irish, and Sawyer smirks that neither is he. But maybe he needs the courage to ask Jack about what happened with him and Kate out in the jungle all night before they found Michael. "We were caught in a net," says Jack. Sawyer suspiciously asks what the hell that's supposed to mean, as if it isn't likely to be literally true on this island. "It means we got caught in a net," repeats Jack, and Sawyer asks if that's what they're calling it these days, as if Jack would have been able to resist letting Sawyer know he and Kate went in for a little rumpy-bumpy out there.
The two of them are all geared up, and as they leave the tent, Sayid's stomping over, asking if it's true that Henry's gone. Jack says it is, and Locke and Eko went out after him in the middle of the night. "But we haven't seen either of them since." Sayid notices them carrying the guns, and wants to know what they're doing. "What do you think we're doing? It's time to finish this," says Sawyer. Sayid, almost happily, asks when they leave. In the morning, says Sawyer, but Jack tells Sayid he's not coming, so Sayid stomps over to Jack and gives him a hilarious "exCUSE me?" Michael wants to keep it small, explains Jack: "Me, Kate, Hurley and him," he says, pointing at Sawyer, who says, "Yeah, well, 'him' says even though Pippi Longstocking and the damn Grape Ape are ideal candidates for the dirty dozen, I'm just going to say we might want to bring along the red beret." Jack says it's Michael's call, because he knows where they're going, like that makes any sense, and Sayid calmly says, "It is not his call, Jack. It's ours." I think Sayid means "ours" as in all of the Lostaways (or at least the main cast), not just him and Jack, or him, Jack and Sawyer. And Sawyer ends the debate by simply handing Sayid a gun and saying, "Welcome aboard."
