Island Reality; Jungle: While hunting a scwewy Sawyer, Aldo Nova tells Kate that the Templars want the Losties to stay at the Temple for their own protection. Kate says, "From what?" And Aldo actually gives her a meaningful answer. I mean, I can't guarantee its truthfulness, but here -- you decide: "Ever see a big pillar of black smoke? Makes a ticka-ticka sound? Looks pissed off?" Kate stops dead in her tracks. "Yes." Aldo says "From that." Since he's being relatively forthcoming for any brand of Other, Jin asks if he knows anything about the Ajira flight, so Aldo reverts to type. "Is this a press conference?" Justin pipes up: "I think he means the one that landed..." Aldo cuts him off. Shut up, Aldo. If you're no longer in the mood to talk, we'd love to hear what Justin has to say. Next, Kate points out that they're about to follow a dummy trail. This seems to piss off Aldo, so he asks Kate what her strategy is for bringing back her "boyfriend" -- who, by the way, shot a guy on his way out of the Temple. "If he tries that on me, I'm going to blow his head off." Just then, Justin stops Kate from triggering a trap. Jin notes it looks like one of Rousseau's as they spot the large net full of rocks hanging from a tree, above. Justin pooh-poohs that. "The French woman? She's been dead for years. This couldn't be one of her..." Aldo shuts him up again. I hope Kate kills Aldo, soon. Right now though, she's just (forcefully) asking him what Justin was going to say. Aldo changes the subject. "You don't even remember me, do you? You don't recognize me? Well, maybe this will jog your memory. Three years ago, you staged yourself a little prison break, and you did it by knocking the guard out with the butt of your rifle. That? Would be me." This time, Kate knocks him out with only the help of her canteen. And when Justin dives for her, she uses that same canteen to trigger the Rousseauian-rock booby trap which sends Justin flying. Kate grabs their guns and hands one to Jin who wants to know what she's doing. Kate says, "Escaping." Duh.
Island Reality; Temple: The Plastic Ono Band brings a suffering Sayid back to the Murky Mikvah Mezzanine. Hurley, Miles and Jack check on Sayid as he tells his friends that Lennon and Yoko tortured him, even though they didn't ask him any questions. Jack marches off to the Unholy of Unholies to have a Come-to-Jesus meeting with Yoko. Lennon tries to make small talk, but Jack wants to know what they did to Sayid. Lennon denies they did anything to him and says Sayid is sick. Jack wants to know with what. Lennon interprets -- or tries to. The closest English he can find to whatever it is Yoko just said is "infected." I'm assuming they're worried about the same kind of infection that got Danielle Rousseau's crew, years ago -- and yet, there's this idea I have that just won't crystalize.
