Jack is taken in for questioning about Juliet, and while he's in the cages, he sees Cindy, the flight attendant, and the children from the tail section. They're there to watch the verdict on Juliet being delivered. Alex tells him that Juliet's going to die, and he goes to Ben to tell him that he has an infection from the surgery, and that he'll die unless Jack helps him. And in return, he asks Ben to save Juliet's life. All of the Others leave Hydra Island and head back to the main island. See how much better "Stranger in a Strange Land" is when it's only 20 minutes long? We then take a trip off the island to learn about our science team. First up, we see Charlotte Lewis in Tunisia, investigating the archeological dig of a polar bear with a Dharma collar on in the middle of the desert. Then, in California, Miles Straume, visits a woman who asks him to put the spirit of her deceased son to rest. Next we go to England, where we see video footage of an underwater sub exploring the supposed wreckage of Oceanic Flight 815. Daniel Hawking is watching on TV and is very broken up about it, when Charles Widmore shows up to visit Dan and offer him a job opportunity. Frank Lapidus is in the Bahamas when he sees footage of the wreckage, and calls the Oceanic hotline to claim that the body of the pilot isn't really the pilot, since he knew that man and knew he would have had his wedding ring on. Back in England, Daniel's mother Eloise encourages him to accept Charles Widmore's offer and go to the island. We finish up in New York, where Michael tries to visit Walt at his mother's, but she doesn't let him. He then goes into an alley to try and kill himself again, when he runs into Tom Friendly. Tom talks to him but Michael isn't having any of it. Back at his apartment, he tries to shoot himself in the head, but the gun jams. When he tries again, he's interrupted by footage of the crash on TV. He goes to Tom's hotel to find out what's going on, where he's recruited to join Widmore's freighter that's heading to the island, where he'll be operating as a spy and is expected to kill everyone.
