[quote-right]WHOOOSH to Hydra island as Sayid paddles up in an outrigger. Jack regains consciousness and sits up. Sayid tells him there was a mortar attack and Locke saved him. Jack asks why they're there, and Locke steps out of the tree line and says Jack's people were captured, locked in the cages, and they have to rescue them. If they move now, they can break them out, run for the plane and get off the island. Jack says they're not his people and he's not leaving the island. Locke says he hopes Jack changes his mind because his friends want to leave, and Locke is going to need Jack to convince them to trust him. Jack asks why he should trust Locke, and Locke says because he could kill Jack right now and hasn't. He could kill every one of Jack's friends, and there's nothing Jack could do to stop him. But instead Locke saved Jack's life, and now he wants to save the others, too.
[quote-left]At the cages, Sawyer can't believe they're locked up again. It's like they're running in circles. Kate tells him Widmore wouldn't have killed her. But Sawyer tells her the cave where their names were written -- Kate's name was there and it was crossed out. He doesn't need her. Jin and Sun spend the time catching up about Ji Yeon, and Sun gives Jin his wedding ring back.
Then suddenly â€“ the lights go out and the generator shuts off. It's dark. Silent. Eerie. Widmore's team begins to panic â€“ and then TIKKA TIKKA TIKKA. The group hears the smoke monster. It roars and attacks. Seamus is pile-driven straight into the bars of the cages, killing him. The monster rampages through the jungle as muzzle flashes go off and men scream. Kate stretches her arms through the bars reaching for Seamus's keys, but they're just out of reach. Then another hand reaches in, and Jack is there grabbing the keys. Kate asks what he's doing there, and Jack says he's with Locke. He unlocks the cages, and they run out.
