[quote-left]WHOOOSH to the Santa Monica beach as Hurley and Libby sit on blankets and have a picnic for their date. Libby says it feels a little off yet familiar, like a date they never had. She asks why Hurley wants to be with her, but Hurley asks her the same thing. Libby says because she likes him. Hurley says it's only because she's delusional. Libby leans over and kisses him. It's tender and sweet – and suddenly Hurley's remembers moments with Libby on the island. His eyes pop open, and he looks at her thunderstruck. He says he thinks he remembers stuff. Libby is happy. Maybe she's not crazy, and Hurley says no, he doesn't think she is.
Watching them together from a car in the parking lot is Desmond – and he's smiling like it's all going to plan. But what that plan is we have no idea. Desmond starts the car and drives away.
[quote-right]WHOOOSH to the jungle as Locke leads Desmond to a well in a clearing. They wonder how deep it is, and Locke drops one of their torches down into it. It tumbles end over end and hits water at the bottom. Locke says the well is very old, so old that the people who dug it did it completely by hand. They weren't just looking for water – they were looking for answers. Places like where they're standing made compass needles spin, and people needed to know why. So they dug but they didn't find what they were looking for. Locke brought Desmond out there because people like Charles Widmore aren't interested in answers. He's interested in power. And Widmore brought Desmond back to the island to help Widmore find what he's looking for. After all, this isn't the only well. Locke realizes that Desmond isn't afraid and asks why he's not. Desmond asks what's the point of being afraid? And then – Locke pushes Desmond into the well! Desmond falls through the dark shaft and SPLASH! Hits the water.
