Sawyer returns to Jack, Kate and Hurley and explains that they'll be part of the recruits coming off the sub. There isn't another sub coming for six months, so they have to hurry or they'll be camping in the jungle for a long time. He hands them '70s clothes to change into and drives them to the barracks to be processed. He explains that Juliet has put their names on the list. They go through intake and get their assignments: Hurley is in the cafeteria, Kate is in the motor pool, and Jack is a workman. Miles arrives and is shocked to see them again. He tells Sawyer that Jin has a hostile at the Flame, and it's Sayid.
Sawyer drives to the Flame station and asks Jin what's going on. Jin says Radzinsky thinks Sayid is a hostile and won't leave them alone. Sawyer talks to Radzinsky, who says the hostile saw the model of the Swan station. He thinks Sayid's a spy and wants to shoot him. Sawyer takes Sayid out of the storage room, and before Sayid can say anything, Sawyer jumps in. He tells Sayid to identify himself as a hostile according to the terms of the truce... or they have the right to shoot him. Sayid says yes, he is one of them. Sawyer tells him now they can proceed like gentlemen and takes him to the security station. Radzinsky is not happy about it and tells Sawyer he's going to take this to Horace.
