A woman is preparing to host a book club meeting at her house. Initially she plays some music, then looks at herself in a mirror. ♪ She seems upset, crying, and trying to keep her composure. The oven timer goes off and she discovers the oven is billowing smoke: her muffins have burnt. She hurriedly takes them out, burning her hand and dropping them on the floor in the process. The doorbell rings, there is a woman at the door. Outside, a man is working on the plumbing. The two women go inside.
Later, the book club meets; the book being discussed is Carrie by Stephen King. A man named Adam complains about the woman's -- now identified as Juliet -- choice of this book and remarks that "Ben" wouldn't read it "even in the bathroom". Juliet argues with Adam that it's her favorite book, stating "here I am, thinking that free will still actually exists on..." She is interrupted by a rumbling like an earthquake, shaking the house. Everyone quickly gets into the doorways. After it ends, they run outside, and we see that the house seems to be in a cul-de-sac community. The man repairing the plumbing stands up, revealing that he is Ethan.
The man who claimed to be Henry Gale exits another house nearby, troubled. While everyone else is looking around, he looks up. ♪ The other people follow his gaze, and see the mid-air break-up and crash of Oceanic 815: the tail going off in one direction, the fuselage in another. The fake Henry Gale tells Ethan Rom and Goodwin to each go to one of the crash sites, that Goodwin can make the shore in an hour. They are both instructed to act as survivors in shock. They must come up with an adequate story if they are asked, but stay quiet if they aren't. He tells them: "Listen, learn. Don't get involved." They also must provide him with "a list" in three days. They both run. ♪ The fake Henry now comes closer to Juliet, who is still holding the book. "So I guess I'm out of the book club", in reference to a past event.
