This is when Sawyer comes to: "That's about the sweetest thing I've ever heard," he says, eyes still closed. Kate's thrilled Sawyer's waking up. "Who the hell's Wayne?" he asks. Then he looks around, blinking. "I'm in a bunk bed?" he says. Yeah, says Kate, laughing. "Are we saved?" he says. "No, Sawyer. Not yet," she says, half-smiling.
Eko and Locke are having a little film-splicin' party, with Locke all, "What are the odds?" Eko's looking at Locke like he has two heads, as Locke babbles thusly: "I mean, think about it. Somebody made this film. Someone else cut this piece out. We crash -- two halves of the same plane fall in different parts of the island. You're over there, I'm over here. And now, here's the missing piece right back where it belongs. What are the odds?" Eko pierces his bubble with a well-put "Don't mistake coincidence for fate." Eko, have a go at the pennies-from-heaven people too, if you like.
Kate's giving Sawyer the grand tour of the hatch-hole, and Sawyer just wants her to admit that they've been rescued. She takes him to the "air lock" as she jokingly calls it, and takes him outside into that ol' familiar jungle to prove to him that they're still stranded on Mystery Friggin' Island. "Son of a bitch," growls Sawyer. They sit down. "I really thought you were yankin' my chain," he says, then asks why Kate keeps smiling. "You need a haircut," she says. Does he ever. He's about a bottle of shampoo and conditioner away from playing bass for Def Leppard (while Jack still has a Marines-worthy haircut). Something catches Sawyer's eye. "Maybe you ought to take me back inside," he says. Kate turns around, spots the black horse. She's stunned. She and Sawyer slowly get to their feet. "You see that?" she whispers. "If you mean the big-ass horse standing in the middle of the jungle, then yeah." Nice to have you back, Sawyer. Kate approaches the horse, and it nuzzles her for a moment before turning and walking away, off to join the moth and the polar bear at the symbolic-yet-real animal clubhouse. "You know that horse, Freckles?" asks Sawyer. "Yeah, I do," she says, kind of smiling.
Wow. Is this scene awkward now. Jack strolls up to Ana-Lucia sitting on the beach, offering her a tequila and tonic (minus the tonic), because he figures she can use a drink. Any excuse for a party for Jack. "Are you going to try to convince me that everyone here doesn't hate me?" she asks. "Only if you're going to try to convince me that every woman in the world's not crazy," he says, because denigrating an entire gender is always endearing to a member of that gender. ["Especially when it's totally out of character, writers." -- Sars] Ana-Lucia accepts the tequila. I've got twenty bucks that says this scene "accidentally" goes missing from the Season 2 DVDs. Either that or I sincerely hope Michelle Rodriguez gets work-release to do the episode commentary. "I decided to work Method for this scene…"
