[quote-left]Locke returns to his camp. Sayid asks where Desmond is, and Locke says they don't have to worry about him. Then Hurley steps out of the jungle and approaches Locke. Hurley says he doesn't know who Locke is, but they need to talk. There are other people with him, and he doesn't want anyone getting hurt. They're not going to do anything, and he wants Locke's word that he won't do anything either. Locke agrees. Hurley yells for them to come out, and Lapidus, Sun and Jack step out. Locke seems very pleased to see them. He says hello to Jack, who is stunned to see Locke alive.
WHOOOSH to Desmond waiting in his car outside a school. Kids file out, and then Desmond sees John Locke exit, wheeling his way towards the crosswalk. Ben taps on the window and asks what Desmond is doing. He's been parked there a while watching the school. Does Desmond have a child that goes here? Desmond lies and says he's moved to the neighborhood and looking for a place for his son. As a teacher, Ben vouches for the school and says it's wonderful. Desmond sees that Locke is wheeling across the street towards his van. Desmond drops the car into gear, guns it, screeching out of his spot, bearing down on Locke at top speed and – BAM!!!
The wheelchair makes a sickening sound as it smashes into the front of the car and rolls up on the hood. Locke goes flying, a limp rag doll pinwheeling away – and Desmond keeps on driving! It's a hit and run! Ben is in shock but quickly shouts out for someone to call 911. He rushes over to Locke, telling him they're going to get him to the hospital, but Locke is in serious trouble.
