Michael and Sawyer argue over who was responsible for what happened with the Others. They drift on what is left of the raft and spot a shark circling, drawn by Sawyer’s bleeding arm. Eventually Michael shoots the shark as it attacks Sawyer. The two of them make it back to the island where Jin comes running toward them with his hands tied behind his back. He screams “Others, Others!” as people approach them. We see Locke’s perspective as he enters the hatch and meets Desmond. He asks Desmond to tie up Kate instead of him but hands her a knife so she can escape. She is locked in a room full of food and then crawls through the vents. Locke answers questions for Desmond and is then forced to enter Hurley’s numbers into a computer which then resets a timer.
