Maternity Leave

LostFlashback: Inside another Dharma bunker, Ethan claims to be giving Claire medicine for her baby. He tells her that the baby may get sick, and encourages her to give the baby to his group so they can keep the baby safe. Confused by the drugs in her system, Claire is inclined to agree, even though other members of Ethan’s group are upset that their timetable has been altered. Finally, a teenage girl tries to get Claire to leave, saying that the group plans to kill her. The girl knocks Claire out and leaves her in the jungle, where Rousseau finds her. To keep the Others from finding Claire, Rousseau knocks her out.

The Island: Jack and Locke continue to argue about what to do with Henry. When Eko realizes they are keeping a prisoner in the hatch, he asks Jack to speak to Henry. Eko recounts how he killed two of the Others who tried to take him, and asks Henry for forgiveness. Henry tries to drive a wedge further between Jack and Locke.

Aaron develops a rash and fever. Jack says it’s just a simple childhood disease that will pass, but Claire is unsure, especially since her memories of her time with Ethan are starting to resurface. She asks Libby to help her remember, and then sets out with Kate to find Rousseau and then the Dharma bunker, looking for the vaccine that will protect Aaron. Rousseau agrees to help, in hopes that this will help her track down Alex, but Rousseau warns Claire of what must be done if Aaron is infected. The warning is even more chilling when they find the bunker deserted with only a few effects left behind . . . including evidence that the Others have not been what they seemed.
