Flashback: Ana Lucia’s mother confronts her after the man who shot her is found dead. Ana Lucia decides to leave the force and gets a job in airport security. In the airport bar, she meets Jack’s father Christian, on his way to Australia. He hires Ana Lucia to help him with an unnamed job, and won’t tell her his name. The job turns out to be sitting in the car while Christian has an argument with a young blond woman, after which Ana Lucia drops him off at a bar – bumping into Sawyer in the process- and decides that it’s time to go home.
The Island: Ana Lucia tries to talk to Henry again, but he attacks her and nearly kills her before Locke intervenes. Jack and Kate bring Michael back to the bunker. When he regains consciousness, he tells them that he has been watching the Others, and knows where their camp is – and that it is lightly guarded. He plans to go back as soon as he has recovered. Ana Lucia decides that she needs a gun in order to settle the score with Henry, and finds a way to separate Sawyer from his pants long enough to get one. Hurley tries to arrange a picnic date with Libby, despite myriad logistical and navigational problems. Ana Lucia decides that she can not pull the trigger – but someone else in the hatch has no such compunctions.
