: Faraday told Desmond to find his mother while the people stuck on the Island were attacked by flaming arrows of death.
begins with Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick
) running like a mad man through an Asian fishing village looking for “Salonga.” He finds the man, a doctor, and begs him to come back to his boat, where Penny (Sonya Walger
) is in labor. After a few quick pushes, she gives birth to a beautiful baby boy.
About two years later, Desmond, Penny and their son are on the boat heading back to a very special island called Great Britain. Penny worries about what will happen if her father knows they're back, but Desmond only cares about helping Daniel Faraday save everyone on the Island.
On the Island, Miles, Charlotte and Faraday make their way to the creek, but Charlotte (Rebecca Mader
) is preoccupied with headaches, double vision, and other signs that she's probably going to die soon. Miles (Ken Leung
) notices a trip wire and tells everyone not to move, but it's too late. The whole creek explodes and everyone flies around. The people with the arrows arrive and Ellie, the woman in charge tells Daniel, “You just couldn't stay away, could you?”
She interrogates them, informing Miles that she didn't put the mines by the creek, his people did. On their way back to Ellie's base, Miles senses that they walked over fresh graves of four U.S. soldiers who died from shooting and radiation poisoning.
Meanwhile, Locke (Terry O'Quinn
), Sawyer (Josh Holloway
)and Juliet are debating what to do with their two hostages. The two speak Latin to one another, which Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell
) translates to say the men are wondering why these people aren't in uniform. The only reason Juliet can speak Latin is the same way these men can: they're all Others.
Faraday and his people are brought back to the Others' camp where they meet Richard Alpert (Nestor Carbonell
), looking young as always. He wonders if Faraday has come back for his bomb. Putting together the clues at this point, Faraday (Jeremy Davies
) concludes that they're somewhere around the 1950s when, before DHARMA arrived, the U.S. military came to the Island to do some hydrogen bomb testing, only to run up against the Hostiles.
Daniel also figures out the casing for the H-bomb is leaking, so he convinces Alpert to let him fix it by promising not to explode it because he's in love with Charlotte.
