Sayid tries to approach Mikhail's outpost but is shot in the shoulder for his troubles. Sayid and Kate attack and force him to drop his gun. Mikhail claims to be a member of the Dharma Initiative, but as he converses with Sayid, Sayid realizes he is one of the Others. Back at the camp, Hurley and Sawyer are engaged in an epic battle of ping pong, where Sawyer gets his stuff back if he wins, but loses the ability to use nicknames for a week if he loses. He gets crushed. Sayid and Kate head to the basement of the outpost while Locke keeps an eye on him. Unfortunately Locke is too busy playing chess and ends up being taken hostage. Sayid and Kate find another one of the Others down there, but when they take her back above, Mikhail kills her so that she can't give up any information, but is taken down before he can kill himself. In a bit of foreshadowing, Rousseau argues that Mikhail should be killed, as he said that he would not hesitate to kill one of them, but Sayid instead chooses to keep him alive. Before they left the outpost, however, Locke blew up the communications outpost. Off island, Matthew Abaddon presents Naomi with her team that will accompany her to the island. At the camp Claire tries to catch a migratory bird in the hopes of attaching a message to its leg and getting a message off the island to the outside world. Locke & co. reach the sonic fence that borders the Dharma barracks. Locke pushes Mikhail into the fence to see if it's on, and he starts to shake and bleed out of his ears and falls over, possibly dead. They get a large tree branch and manage to climb over the fence instead. Michael joins up with the freighter crew in the Pacific, and talks to Tom on the phone one last time before leaving port. Desmond helps Claire get one of her birds, and tells her about his visions of Charlie dying. We close out the episode with Locke, Sayid and Kate arriving at the Dharma barracks and spotting Jack, only he's busy playing football with Tom Friendly.
