Flashback: Ana Lucia returns to the Los Angeles police force four months after being involved in a shooting. Her captain – also her mother – wants to ease her back into active duty with a desk job, but Ana Lucia demands to go back on patrol. When she reacts to a minor disturbance by drawing her weapon, her partner is concerned. At the precinct, her mother tells Ana Lucia that they have a suspect who has confessed to shooting her. Ana Lucia refuses to identify the suspect, so the police have to release him. Not long after, Ana Lucia follows him out from a bar and calls his name. When he turns around, she tells him, “I was pregnant” – right before firing several shots into him.
The Island: Eko knocks out an enraged Sayid before he can attack Ana Lucia. She ties him up and orders everyone to stay put. But the other survivors are getting restless and a little afraid of Ana. Eko brings Sawyer to the beach, where he finds Jack. Inside the bunker, Locke introduces himself to Eko while Jack and Kate try to help Sawyer. Ana Lucia tells Michael to go back to the camp and bring her supplies so she can head off into the jungle herself. Bernard and Libby decide to return to the beach with Jin. When Sayid wakes up, Ana Lucia tells him how the man who shot her claimed to be reaching for his ID. She believed him long enough for him to fire four rounds. She asks Sayid if she should kill him, and Sayid wonders what would be the point of either of them getting killed at this point. With Sawyer stabilized, Jack is ready to run off into the jungle armed to find the others . . . until Eko tells him the name of the woman who shot Shannon.
