Flashback: After Shannon’s father dies in a car accident, her stepmother cuts off her funds just as she earns a prestigious internship in New York City. Boone offers to help her, but even he does not seem to believe that Shannon has what it takes to make it on her own.
The Island: Shannon has another vision of Walt, and is absolutely determined to find him. Sayid doubts the reality of what she saw, putting a strain on their developing relationship. Locke tries to help Claire with the baby, which alienates Charlie. Claire, on the other hand, is grateful for the help – and her musings suggest to Locke that Charlie’s recovery may have hit a speed bump. Mister Eko diverts the tail survivors back into the jungle in a bid to save time and possibly Sawyer’s life. Ana Lucia is furious, afraid that they are putting themselves at risk from the Others. When Michael demands to know the reason for their fear, she explains that over their time on the island, the Others have kidnapped many of the tail survivors. And when they appear to take another, Ana Lucia’s paranoia claims another victim.
