In a dialogue-free montage, Jin heads back to Sun with a flower and his newfound English skills. She gives him a bear hug when he tells her that those pants don't make her look fat. Charlie crashes in Claire's tent. Hurley drives his van in circles. Sawyer brings himself some beer. But really, beer without porn? What is the point? Sawyer mulls it over.
Meanwhile, Kate is by herself in the woods. Right. Kate. Oh yeah, plot movement. She finds something and peers around in the dark, ducking when she hears a noise. It's Sayid and Locke. They want to know why she didn't ask them for help, and she gives them two reasons: they didn't know where to look, and they lacked motivation. Huh. She doesn't blame them, though. Why would they want to truck across the island and risk more lives? And she knows they aren't motivated because they didn't come after the three of them when they were taken. Locke agrees about the motivation, but tells her they do know where to look because of the way the sunlight hit Mr. Eko's stick when John was burying him. Oh, yeah. Because that always works. That's how I got out of my last lease and my last relationship. Just as Kate is about to tell them what she's looking for, bullets fly past their heads. Kate tells them not to shoot, and yells into the woods that it's safe and they're just there to talk. Rousseau, who shoots first and asks questions later, emerges from the woods. Kate wants her to help them. Why? Because when The Others captured them, the girl who helped them escape was sixteen years old and named Alex, and Kate is pretty darn sure that she's Rousseau's daughter. Rousseau looks suitably impressed. But that's all the story progress we have time for this week, kids. Tune in next week, when something might actually happen!
