The two tribes have merged, so now it's time to see which survivor can outwit, outplay and outlast the others.  But the Island on Lost doesn't have any hidden immunity idols.  Or does it?  Have I accidentally stumbled onto a great Lost theory where the Smoke Monster is actually the ghost of Jeff Probst?

Probably not, but "merge" is the word of the episode.  Not only do the two tribes come together on the Island, but in the altverse, everything starts to come together.  And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING.

There are a lot of loose ends in the altverse, and Lost wastes no time in this episode tying them up.  There are three legs to this altverse tripod, so we start with Ben riding in the ambulance with John Locke, racing to the hospital.  When they arrive, there's another ambulance that gets there at the exact same time carrying Sun.  As both stretchers are wheeled in side-by-side, Sun is freaked out because she knows who John Locke is.

In the second leg, James Ford is booking Kate and the two share some serious sexual chemistry.  He thinks something is trying to put them together while she threatens to reveal that he noticed that she was handcuffed at the airport, but he did nothing because he didn't want to explain why he was in Sydney.

Miles calls James away because they picked up a multiple homicide at a restaurant.  It's Keamy and his men, meaning Sun is a victim, Jin is a witness and Sayid is the suspect.  So Miles and James go to Nadia's house and arrest him.

In the third and final leg of the altverse story, Claire, out of the hospital and still pregnant, goes to an adoption agency, but she's stopped by Desmond, who wants her to talk to his lawyer.  As far as I could remember, no Lost characters were ever lawyers, so I was shocked and hilariously pleased to see that Desmond's altverse lawyer is...Ilana!

That's right, Ilana is non-blown up in the altverse and practicing law.  She instantly recognizes Claire, claiming that she's been looking for her.  Why?  Because Ilana is the executor of Christian Shephard's estate.

After getting off the phone with David's mom (still being incredibly enigmatic about her true identity), Jack and his son head up to see Ilana for the reading of Christian's will, where Jack meets his half-sister for the first time.

Just as that piece of news starts to sink in, he gets paged to the hospital, where there's an emergency that needs his immediate attention.  You only get one guess about who Jack has to perform surgery, and if you guess anyone other than John Locke, the Lost gods will blow you up like they did to Ilana.

Jack goes back to his hospital, where Sun is safely recuperating and her baby is safe.  He goes into surgery, looks down at the mirror on the floor and instantly recognizes the man on his table as John Locke.
