The Jungle; 1977: As Sawyer carries dying wee Ben through the bush, Kate never takes her eyes off the boy (the little one). Sawyer says, "Don't worry, we've got 'em right where we want 'em." A nameless Other tells him to shut up and keep moving, and then Richard appears. "Hello there, James." Well, hello there yourself, handsome. After Sawyer expresses his shock at Richard's sudden way of coming and going, Richard asks if the boy is Benjamin Linus. Sawyer says, "You two know each other?" Hmmm, perhaps Doc was right about not saving the kid, but I'll never admit that, not even under pains of death. Kate, trying to be Mistress of the Obvious (since she's having no luck with any of the more corporeal guys in town) adds that Ben was shot. Richard wants to know who she is, but Sawyer just says, "She's with me." They need Richard to save Ben's life and want to know if he can. Richard looks at Kate and ponders it all for a moment. "If I take him, he's not ever gonna be the same again. [...] What I mean is that he'll forget this ever happened, and that... his innocence will be gone." What the hell are you going to do to the child, Richard? He doesn't hear me, and I'm too disturbed right now to go looking for the wee Richard that's probably around here, somewhere. [If you've been talking to your Lost action figures this whole time, you'll never find him. - Z] "He will always be one of us." There's a sort of buzzing sound that almost sounds like the warm-up to a jump, but it dies down. Richard adds, "You still want me to take him?" Kate nods at him. "Yes." Richard looks to Sawyer, who then transfers the boy to Richard's arms." A nameless Other steps up to Richard. "You shouldn't do this without asking Ellie. And if Charles finds out?" Richard scowls. "Let 'em find out. I don't answer to either of them." As Richard walks off, carrying Ben, Kate cries out, "Where are you taking him?" When Richard ignores her, Kate makes to follow him into the thicket, but Sawyer grabs her arm and says, "Come on." Uneasily, he and Kate make their way past all the armed Others -- back towards Dharmaville. Alone, Richard carries Benjamin as tenderly as any father would. Right into THE TEMPLE! They disappear from view and we jump to...

Hydra Island Make-Shift Sick Bay; 2007: Benjamin Linus awakes from his oar-induced coma. His eyes open slowly at first. When he realizes who is sitting at his bedside, his face spells out double-you-tee-eff. The camera pans to his guardian angel, who says, "Hello, Ben." It's Locke! Ben can't believe what he's seeing and Locke is enjoying that, which he totally should, seeing how Ben strangled him to death and all. "Welcome back to the... land of the living." Ben raises his head. Locke squints and smiles. DUN! Bad robot.
