WHOOSH to the beach camp, Juliet tells Kate everything went well. Juliet confesses that Jack kissed her. She reassures Kate that it was Jack simply proving something: that he doesn't love someone else. The implication is clear, and Kate thanks Juliet for saving Jack's life. Kate leaves, and Juliet tells Jack that she knows he's awake. Jack heard every word she said to Kate.
WHOOSH to Kate's house. Kate comes home, and is surprised to see Jack there. He looks upset, and she asks what's wrong. Jack asks her where she was. Kate says he's just going to have to trust her and leave it be. But Jack can't do that. He asks her again where she was. He heard her on the phone the other night. Who was she talking to? Kate tells him to stop, to let it go. But Jack wants to know. Finally, Kate says she was doing something for Sawyer. She made him a promise. Jack is hurt. Sawyer's not there. He made his choice and chose to stay. Jack is the one who is there. He's the one that saved her. Kate tells him he can't do this. She can't have him around her son. Jack tells her she's not even related to him. Then Kate notices Aaron in the hallway, watching them fight, crying. Kate pushes past Jack and picks him up, telling him everything is okay. But Jack turns and walks out.
WHOOSH to the island where Sawyer, Claire and Miles are sleeping. Claire hears something and wakes up. Across the fire she sees someone holding Aaron. It's her dad, Christian Shephard. When Sawyer wakes up, he sees that Claire is gone. Miles tells him she had a visitor last night and left with him. She called him "dad." Sawyer hears the faint sounds of Aaron crying and takes off running through the jungle. He finds Aaron wrapped in a blanket at the base of a tree, and he's all alone. Sawyer yells out for Claire, but no one is around.
