WHOOSH back to the island where Sayid checks out the helicopter. There's some minor damage but it'll still fly. Miles uses the sat-phone to call Minkowski, but Regina, the woman who answers, says Minkowski can't come to the phone. It's clear from her tone something is wrong and Miles relents. Faraday and Kate arrive with Naomi's body. Faraday wants to take it back to the ship with them. As Juliet attends to the wound on Lapidus' head, he asks her name. She tells him Juliet Burke, and he realizes her name wasn't on the manifest. She's a native. Suddenly, Miles is in her face demanding to know where "he" is. Jack warns him to back off. Miles pulls out a photo of Ben, a photo of an adult Ben in an airport security line and clearly not on the island, and asks again – where is he?
Ben is with Locke's group tied to a tree, and Sawyer is giving him a brutal beating. Locke realizes Ben is his problem and asks Rousseau to escort Alex away. He's going to kill Ben. Right before Locke pulls the trigger, Ben tells them the woman's name is Charlotte Lewis. He tells them her entire history, the names of her team members and that they are there for him. She and her people are a threat, and if Locke shoots him they'll never know how much of a threat. Locke asks how Ben knows what they want, and Ben simply says, "Because I have a man on their boat."
