In the altverse, Jack woke up and was still weirded out by the mark on his neck. Jack and his son ate breakfast while discussing a concert David will perform at. Jack is curious if David's mom will be there, once again thwarting my desire for the show to just tell us who the mother is already. Claire walks in to join them.
Jack gets a call from Oceanic Airlines telling him that they found the coffin. Or at least that's what he thinks, because it's actually Desmond, still playing games with the Oceanic 815 passengers.
Desmond is also parked outside of Locke's school again.

Ben is also told that Desmond wasn't trying to kill Locke, he was trying to help him let go. In the nurse's office, Ben tells this to Locke, who seems to have everything click into place.

It's good to have the Rousseau ladies back, even if their only function seems to be telling Ben that he's Alex's surrogate father while Danielle flirts pretty heavily with him.
Meanwhile, Locke goes to see Dr. Jack Shephard. He's amazed by the recent chain of unlikely events that keep bringing him back here, so he's ready to have the surgery. Jack warns him about mistaking coincidence for fate, but Locke doesn't care.
