Flashback: Jin pins his hope for a brighter future on having a child, but after a year of trying the effort is only adding to the strain between him and Sun. Sun meets with Jae Lee in order to learn English, planning to leave Jin and move to America. Jae Lee wants her to consider staying in Korea with him instead. A doctor informs the couple that Sun is unable to bear children . . . but later confesses to her that he has hidden the real truth.
The Island: Jin finds Sun working in her garden. Driven by fear for her safety, he demands that she stop spending time there; when she refuses, he destroys the garden. Sun’s feelings of isolation are not helped by the symptoms she’s experiencing, symptoms that lead her to ask Sawyer for a pregnancy test. She waits with Kate for the results, and when they come back positive they go to Jack for confirmation. But she is hesitant to tell Jin, and unsure of how she feels about the idea. Locke enlists Ana Lucia to interrogate Henry, pointedly doing so without consulting Jack first. Determined to avoid repeating her earlier mistake, she wants to be absolutely sure that Henry’s not telling the truth, so she gets Henry to draw her a map to her balloon. Ana Lucia then enlists Sayid’s help to track down the balloon. Along with Charlie, they set off – pointedly doing so without consulting Jack or Locke first. As Henry is all too happy to point out over breakfast with the two of them, it appears the survivors have some serious trust issues to work on…
