The Island: Hurley absolutely hates his current assignment: inventorying the food supply in the bunker. He especially hates it when he has to keep the secret from the others on the island, and eventually he brings Rose in to help him. Locke tells Charlie about the hatch, and the food . . . which sends Charlie right to Hurley in search of peanut butter for Claire. When Hurley refuses him, Charlie’s hurt feelings frustrate Hurley even more, so he resolves to take drastic measures to ensure that things don’t change for him again.
Sayid and Jack look for the source of the electromagnetic disturbance, but it’s isolated behind heavy concrete. Claire finds the message in the bottle that the raft passengers carried with them, and gives it to Sun. Michael, Sawyer, and Jin are freed by their captors and brought to another bunker where another group of survivors from the tail of the plane huddles for shelter . . . including one survivor they’ve heard plenty about.
