An endless expanse of sky over sea, with a few wisps of white clouds here and there on the horizon. Pull back to reveal we have been looking out the front windows of an airplane cockpit in flight. Gauges point steadily in every which direction on the instrument panel. From one of the gauges hangs a lucky rabbit's foot keychain. The arm of the pilot clutches the throttle; the arm of the copilot clutches a cup of coffee. The pilot, wearing aviator sunglasses, flicks a switch above him.The plane approaches the runway on a developed island. Its tires screech as it touches down. Mindy smiles as the cargo door opens. She sees her mother and runs out to her. Patrick runs out when he sees his parents, introducing them to Georgie. ben Flood walks off texting. The text reads:We made it Wade. Everyones okay. Best luck to you. Flood stares out at everyone celebrating. He started to cry, feeling guilty for him being alive while others were dead. It was all my fault he thought.
Kate:Has anyone seen Claire?
Jack:No she vanished last night. I think Boone went looking for her
Flood,Whitlark,Billy,Patrick, and Skip were getting read to fight the mercenaries.They had offered Billy money to join them. Sawyer and Jack were fifteen minutes ahead of them. When they made it to the helicoptor, Jack and Sawyer were un-cuffing Frank.
Frank: Your buddies were smart enough to keep their @sses on the boat because right now that's the safest place to be. Because when the boys that I brought over here come stompin' out of this jungle, you're gonna wanna be long gone. The mercenaries are headed to some Orchid place.
Jack tells Daniel through the radio.
CHARLOTTE: Daniel? What's wrong?
FARADAY: [Lowers voice] Charlotte, did you hear what he said? They're going to the Orchid. They're using the secondary protocol.
CHARLOTTE: What are you talking about?
[Daniel comes to a page with a drawing on it. The words "The Orchid" can be seen.]
FARADAY: We have to get off this island. Right now.
Mrs.Decker: Based on the location of the wreckage, our best estimate of the crash site is... [click] here. From there, the survivors were carried by the ocean's current to... [click] here--an uninhabited island in the Lesser Sunda Islands known as Membata. As you've all read in your briefing books, on day 103... [click] a typhoon washed up the remnants of an Indonesian fishing boat, including basic supplies and a survival raft. On day 108, the remaining six survivors, including Ms. Austen's baby which she gave birth to on the island of Membata, used this raft to journey here-- [click] an island called Sumba. They then came ashore near a village called Manukangga. This photo was taken by the local fisherman who found them. Once it was discovered who they were, they were transported to Honolulu by the U.S. Coast Guard. As you can imagine, this has been an extraordinarily trying experience. They have, however, agreed to answer a few questions. So, ladies and gentlemen,I present to you, the Oceanic 11
New Reporter;Mr.Flood, why are their only 10 of you.
Flood:Um..Wade barret was the 11th member. As you all know, he is a criminal. He had a gun on him somehow, and he shot Georgie Keamy the minute we made it too land as a diversion.
New Reporter:Doctor Shepard those of you who survived--you swam to the island?
Jack:No. We had, uh, cushions. We had some life jackets. We were in the water for over a day before the current took us in. By then, there was only eight of us left.
MALE REPORTER #1: What happened to the other three?
JACK: One of them, his name is Robert Anderson, suffered tremendous internal injuries and died a few days after the crash. A woman, Libby, she didn't make it through the first week. Charlie Pace, he drowned a few weeks before we were able to leave.
Ben leads Mandy,Locke and Hurley through the jungle. He explains that if, as Christian told Locke, they need to move the Island, then there's only one place to do that: the Orchid station. Hurley asks Ben why he did not move the Island before the mercenaries arrived. Ben replied, "Because doing it is both dangerous and unpredictable. It's a measure of last resort." Along the way, Ben stops at a rock formation and pulls out a hidden case. Inside are binoculars, a signaling mirror, and a DHARMA Initiative cracker tin with the Swan logo. Locke gives the tin to Hurley, who opens it up and starts eating the crackers that are inside. After telling Hurley that the crackers are 15 years old, Ben uses the mirror to reflect light in order to signal something to someone on a nearby cliff. The person on the cliff responds with more reflected light. Locke takes the binoculars and asks Ben whom he communicated with and what he said with the signal. Ben replies, "Who do you think?" to the first question and answers, "None of your business, John," to the second.
Daniel heads off to the Feighter with Mindy,Jun,Jin,Aaron, and others.Sayid and Kate head off into the jungle and Daniel takes Sun, Jin, Aaron and three other survivors in the Zodiac. In the jungle, Kate and Sayid are tracking Jack and Sawyer's footprints. Kate notices a different fresh set of tracks that have doubled back on them, and Sayid calls for whoever is following them to reveal themselves. Richard Alpert emerges from the jungle, and Kate and Sayid draw their guns and tell Richard to stand down. He asks them to calm down and continues moving towards them until a large group of Others come out of the bush and aim rifles at the pair. Richard disarms the two and the Others begin escorting them to an undefined location.
Patrick:I cant belevie we are free.
Georgie:Yeah its sad. I mean everyone that died, Jin, Michael Robert,Libby,Ana...
Later, the three reach the Orchid, only to find that Keamy's team have made it there first. Ben gives Locke very specific instructions on what to do once inside the station (which involves finding a secret elevator to the real station), hands him his telescopic baton, then walks out into the open where Keamy's team can see him. Keamy comes out and Ben surrenders to him. Keamy holds a gun to Ben's head for a second, before hitting him with it instead.
Patrick sits at Leon's grave.Patrick:Im sorry. You should still be alive. I hope by some miracle you are. Dont worry. i will find a way to get back. And if your alive, Im going to get you off the island. You saved my life, and for that, I can never repay you.
Patrick stood up, and walked away from the grave of Joshua Jackson.
Georgie:I cant belevie he is dead. I wished he lived to see her.
Georgie went to her car and opened the back door. A girl around 10 hopped out.
Georgie;patrick, meet Annie Jackson.
