Ilana explains to everyone how she came to be in their service, her meeting with Jacob, and the task he put in front of her. She tells them that Jacob told her that Richard would know what to do, but he has no idea. Richard, still disillusioned with Jacob, heads off into the jungle. At Locke's camp, Locke heads off for a mission. Once he leaves, Widmore's people shoot everyone with tranquilizer darts and take Jin back to their sub. Richard goes to where he buried his wife's necklace many years ago, and calls out to Locke, that he wants to join him. Hurley shows up, and tells him that he can see his wife, and that she wants to talk to him. They converse through Hurley, and she tells him that he has to stop Locke from leaving the island. At the beach camp, Sun is keeping busy by going back to her garden, when Locke shows up. He tries to get Sun to go with him, but she runs off and hits her head on a tree. When she comes to, she is unable to speak English, although she can understand it. Locke heads back to his camp, where he finds everyone unconscious and Jin gone. Jin wakes up inside Room 23 on Hydra Island. Locke heads over to Hydra Island to confront Charles Widmore. Richard comes back to the beach camp, and his plan to stop Locke is to blow up the plane so that he can't leave. Widmore meets with Jin, and gives him Sun's digital camera from the plane, where he sees pictures of his daughter for the first time. Widmore is seeking Jin's help, because in the Dharma Initiative he helped map out the island, and he is looking for more information about the pockets of electromagnetic energy. Widmore wants to show Jin who he took with him on the sub to help him accomplish his goal. As they take him out of the sub, we see that it's Desmond. Sayid has secretly infiltrated Widmore's camp and sees this as well. Widmore tells Desmond that he needs his help, since he is the only person he knows that has ever survived a catastrophic electromagnetic event. He places him inside a small wooden building with a large electromagnetic generator inside, to create a similar effect as what occurred when the hatch imploded. The generator is turned on and Desmond's mind flashes...somewhere else. He wakes up a few seconds later, much more willing to help Widmore than he was before he flashed. Widmore's people take Desmond back to their camp, when Sayid shows up and kills them, and takes Desmond back to Locke's camp. The episode runs 47:25 and is 385MB to download.
