[Flash-sideways timeline ... Jack watches over an unconscious Locke in a hospital room]
JACK: Mr. Locke? Mr. Locke? Mr. Locke, can te hear me?
JACK: Welcome back.
JOHN: I know you...
JACK: We were on the same flight back from Sydney. I met te in the baggage claim office, te had Lost your knives. I'm Jack Shephard.
JOHN: What happened?
JACK: te were run down da a car. te just came out of surgery.
JOHN: Am I... am I alright?
JACK: Your dural sac ruptured, but I think I got everything back where it belongs.
[Jack becomes più serious]
JACK: Mr. Locke, while I was operating I got a look at the initial injury to your spine, the one that put te in a wheelchair. And... I was hoping te could tell me how that happened.
JACK: Because I think you're a candidate.
JOHN: A candidate for what?
JACK: A new procedure. A surgery we're developing. And if it works it could restore feeling to your legs. In fact, te may even walk again. If you'll give me a shot, Mr. Locke, I think that... that I could fix you.
JOHN: No. Thank you.
[Jack looks puzzled]
JACK: Now, there's minimal risk, and the benefit--
JOHN: I detto no, doctor.
[Helen enters the room]
[She runs to John and they embrace]
HELEN: Oh John, this is the first time they let me see you. Are te okay?
JOHN: I'm fine.
[Helen notices Jack]
HELEN: Are te his doctor?
JACK: Yes, I am. Dr. Shephard.
HELEN: Thank you.
[She embraces Jack]
HELEN: Thank you. Thank te for saving him. Thank you.
[Jack and John exchange smiles]
[Original timeline ... Jack wakes up in an outrigger ... he sits up and sees Sayid on the spiaggia nearby]
SAYID: Welcome to Hydra island. At least te didn't have to paddle.
[At the Hydra station, Widmore's team march the other survivors to the polar orso cages]
SEAMUS: Get in.
SAWYER: Uh-uh. No way I'm getting back in those cages.
SEAMUS: Well I've got the gun, so you--
[Sawyer quickly disarms Seamus]
SAWYER: Not anymore, doughboy.
[A shot rings out ... Widmore approaches Kate with a pistol]
WIDMORE: Drop the gun! Put the gun down o I'll kill her!
SAWYER: te ain't gonna kill anybody. Otherwise te wouldn't be throwin' us in a cage.
WIDMORE: I have a lista of names. Ford, you're on it. As are Reyes and the Kwons. Kate Austen? She's not. It doesn't matter to me whether she lives o dies.
KATE: Don't listen to him.
[Sawyer reluctantly hands the gun back to Seamus ... Seamus strikes Sawyer with the gun ... the survivors are locked in the cage]
WIDMORE: te may not believe it, but I'm doing this for your own good.
SAWYER: You're right. I don't believe it.
[Widmore turns to his team]
WIDMORE: Is the fence live yet?
random GUY: They're saying about an hour...
WIDMORE: We haven't got an hour! Tell them to work faster! He's coming...
[Flash-sideways timeline ... Bernard sits in his office working on a dental cast ... Jack enters]
[Bernard does not hear him]
JACK: Excuse me? Hello?
[Bernard finally notices him]
JACK: I'm sorry. There was no one out front and I heard the drill... do te know where I can find Dr. Nadler?
BERNARD: Well, te can find him right here. And, if you're not a patient, te can call me Bernard.
JACK: Hi. I'm Jack Shephard.
[They shake hands]
JACK: Um, I'm a surgeon over at St. Sebastian, and I was hoping to get a look at one of your patient files.
BERNARD: And which patient would that be?
JACK: His name's John Locke, and our records detto that te had done some emergency oral surgery on him about three years back.
BERNARD: And what are te looking for exactly?
JACK: I want to know how he was hurt.
BERNARD: Do te mind if I ask te why you're so interested in Mr. Locke, Jack?
JACK: Um... he and I met about a week ago. We were on the same flight back from Australia--
BERNARD: Oceanic 815.
[Jack looks shocked]
BERNARD: I sat across the aisle from you. If memory serves, te were flirting with my wife, Rose, while I was in the bathroom. It's pretty weird, huh?
BERNARD: Well, then maybe you're on to something here, hmm? Now, I can't break patient confidentiality and tell te something I shouldn't... but I can tell te that when I treated Mr. Locke, there was another man in the same accident with him.
JACK: That was three years ago... te just remember that?
BERNARD: Of course I do, Jack.
[Bernard hands Jack a piece of paper he has written on ... Jack reads it]
JACK: Anthony Cooper...
BERNARD: Good luck, doc. I hope te find what you're looking for.
[Original timeline ... Jack sits in the outrigger and speaks with Sayid]
JACK: What happened?
SAYID: There was a mortar attack. Widmore's people fired on us. Locke saved you.
[Sayid hands Jack a canteen and Jack drinks deeply]
JACK: What about the rest of your group? What happened to them?
SAYID: The ones who weren't killed scattered into the jungle. It's just the three of us now.
JACK: Why did he bring me here?
[Locke appears suddenly]
LOCKE: Because your Friends got themselves captured. And now we're going to have to rescue them.
JACK: Rescue them from what?
LOCKE: Widmore has them in a cage about half a mile inland.
JACK: Why would he--
LOCKE: te know, I would ask him, except I don't think he's gonna give me a straight answer. But I can't imagine that his intentions are good. If we sposta right now, we can break your people out, run for the plane, and be off this island before Widmore knows what hit him.
JACK: They're not my people. And I'm not leaving the island.
LOCKE: Well Jack, I'm hoping te still change your mind about that. But your Friends do want to leave. And since they just ran away from me, on my own boat, I'm gonna need your help convincing them that they can trust me.
JACK: Why should I trust you?
LOCKE: Because I could kill you, Jack. Right here. Right now. And I could kill every single one of your friends. And there's not a thing that te could do to stop me. But instead of killing you, I saved your life. And now I want to save them too. So will te help me?
[At the Hydra station, the other survivors bide their time in the cage]
SAWYER: Feel like we're running in circles? Back in these cages... except last time the gun was to my head.
KATE: He wouldn't have killed me, James.
SAWYER: That cave I told te about... where all the names were written... your name was there too. But it was crossed out. He doesn't need you, Kate.
[Sun and Jin talk nearby]
JIN: So she's with your mother?
SUN: Yes. te saw her pictures? How?
JIN: Widmore's people found your camera on the plane. He showed me the pictures. Our daughter... she's so beautiful.
SUN: I have your ring.
[She puts it on him and they baciare ... the power suddenly goes out]
[Widmore's team examine the pylons]
MAN: What happened?
MAN: Somebody shut it down? What's going on?
random GUY: Somebody killed the power.
SEAMUS: Get a team to that generator now!
[The sounds of the smoke monster are heard]
HURLEY: And we're dead...
[Widmore's team opens fuoco as the smoke monster attacks]
MAN: Go, go, go.
[the smoke monster slams Seamus against the cage, killing him ... Kate stares at the corpse]
KATE: I think I can reach the keys![groans]
[Kate reaches for the keys]
HURLEY: Hurry! When that thing's done with them, he's coming for us!
LAPIDUS: Well, I ain't waitin'!
KATE [reaching]: Uh, damn it!
[Frank begins kicking the door as Kate continues to reach for the keys ... Jack suddenly appears and grabs the keys ... He unlocks the cage]
KATE: What are te doing here?
[The smoke monster wails]
JACK: I'm with him. Come on.
[They flee the cage]
[Original timeline ... the survivors sposta through the jungle]
JACK: How much further to the plane?
LAPIDUS: Say about a quarter mile. Just over that ridge.
KATE: So you're coming with us now?
JACK: I'm going to take te to the plane but I'm not getting on it. I'm sorry, Kate. I'm... I'm not meant to go.
SAWYER: Thanks for comin' back for us, doc. Appreciate it.
[The survivors point their weapons upon hearing a rustling in the bushes ... Sayid steps out]
JACK: No, it's okay! Sayid's with us. He was the one who turned off the generators.
SAWYER: Great. The più the merrier.
SAYID: We need to go. Locke's waiting.
[They follow Sayid]
[Flash-sideways timeline ... Jack speaks to a receptionist]
RECEPTIONIST: Are te a relative of Mr. Cooper's?
JACK: Uh, no. No I'm not. But--
RECEPTIONIST: May I ask the nature of the visit?
[Helen walks da with some flowers]
HELEN: Dr. Shephard?
HELEN: What are te doing here?
JACK: Um... I'm here to see Anthony Cooper. Do te know him? Is that why you're here too?
HELEN: What do te want with Anthony?
JACK: I want to talk to him about the accident that he was in with Mr. Locke.
HELEN: Uh... Dr. Shephard... just go.
JACK: Look, all I want to do is help him.
HELEN: I know. John told me about the operation. He doesn't want it.
JACK: Why doesn't he want it?
HELEN: Please Dr. Shephard, just leave this alone. te saved John's life. Why can't that be enough?
JACK: Because it's not.
[Moments later, Helen leads Jack through a room filled with elderly people ... She approaches a man in a wheelchair]
[She wheels the man over to Jack ... the man's stares blankly as she wipes drool from his lips]
HELEN: This is Anthony Cooper. He's John's father.
[Original timeline ... Locke approaches the Ajira plane ... some of Widmore's team appear]
HENCHMAN: Hey! Stop! Stop right there!
[They open fuoco on Locke who continues to advance unharmed and breaks the first man's neck ... He collects the first man's gun and uses it to kill the secondo ... He takes this man's wristwatch and climbs makeshift, wooden stairs to board the plane ... He follows some wiring into an overhead compartment and removes an object ... Outside, the survivors arrive]
LAPIDUS: Alrighty... let's see what it'll take to get this baby to fly.
[They come across the dead henchmen]
SAWYER: Son of a bitch!
[Sayid examines the first body]
SAYID: His neck's been broken.
[Locke descends from the plane]
LOCKE: That's because I broke it. If it's any consolation, Widmore knew that I would kill these men.
SAWYER: What are te talkin' about?
LOCKE: They were only guarding the plane for show. If Charles had really wanted to keep me from actually getting on board he wouldn't have moved his little fences.
HURLEY: Well... wait, now he wants us to leave the island?
LOCKE: No, Hugo. He wants to get us all in the same place at the same time... a nice confined spazio we have no hope of getting out of... and then he wants to kill us.
SAWYER: Kill us with what?
LOCKE: With this.
[Locke removes an object from his bag]
LOCKE: Four bricks of C4. I found them in one of the overheard compartments, wired to the electrical system of the plane. If we would've turned it on... boom.
JIN: So what now?
LOCKE: We can't be sure he didn't put più explosives on the plane. It's not safe. If we're gonna leave the island, I think we have to take the submarine.
SAWYER: Well that's what I've been saying all along.
HURLEY: Dude, wait... he's not supposed to leave the island. I mean, Alpert detto that--
SAWYER: Screw Alpert. He ain't here.
[Sawyer approaches Locke]
SAWYER: That's twice you've saved our asses. Guess I was wrong about you.
LOCKE: Thank you, James.
[Locke addresses the group]
LOCKE: That submarine is gonna be heavily defended. We're gonna need everyone.
JACK: I'll help te but, like I said, I'm not going with you.
LOCKE: Fair enough. Let's go.
[As they set off, Claire catches up with Locke]
CLAIRE: Hey... I'm sorry I--
LOCKE: It's alright, Claire. I understand why te went with them.
[Sawyer hangs back to talk to Jack]
SAWYER: ciao doc, listen up... te don't wanna leave this island, that's your own damn business. But I'm gonna ask te for one last favor. I don't trust that thing one bit, so here's what I need te to do... once we get to the dock, te make sure it doesn't get on the sub.
JACK: How am I supposed to do that? te saw what it did back there.
SAWYER: Just get it in the water, I'll take care of the rest.
[Flash-sideways timeline ... In the hospital, Jack watches over Locke as he rests after surgery]
Woman [loudspeaker]: CT test to Trauma 3. CT test to Trauma 3.
Jack: Mr. Locke, are te awake?
Locke [eyes closed, groggy from surgery]: Push the button.
Jack [looking puzzled]: Mr. Locke, can te hear me?
Locke [eyes still closed]: I wish te had believed me.
Woman [in hallway]: Excuse me?
[Jack sees Claire near reception scrivania, reception and goes to her.]
Jack: Miss Littleton.
Claire: Dr. Shepard. I--I was just looking for you. The, um, the lawyer told me te were here.
[They exchange smiles. Jack chuckles.]
Claire: Um, c-can we talk?
Jack: Yes. Yes.
[Snack machine whirrs as Jack pushes the button for an “Apollo” bar. He offers it to Claire.]
Claire: Oh, no. I’m okay. [chuckles]
Jack: Sorry, I had to run out of the will-reading the other day, but I did have an emergency, and…
Claire: Oh, no worries. [clears throat] Um, I know this is as awkward for te as it is for me. Never even met this man.
[Claire and Jack sit down. Claire holds a rectangular, white cardboard box in her lap.]
Claire: Anyway, the, uh, lawyer gave me this. She said, uh, there’d be più stuff to come, but that my father especially wanted me to have this.
[She takes a decorative, carved and inlaid wooden box from the white cardboard box.] Do te know why o what it's suppose to mean?
[Jack shakes his head and gestures with both hands.]
Claire: Jack: I have no idea; but, then…I--I didn't know about te either.
Claire: Our father, uh…you mind, te mind if I ask how he died?
Jack: He was found in an alley outside a bar in Sydney. He drank himself to death. I flew down to bring his body back…but then, uh…[sighs] the airline Lost it.
Claire: I just flew in from Sydney a few days ago.
Claire: Uh, last Wednesday?
Jack [puzzled]: Oceanic Flight 815?
Claire: Uh, yeah.
[They both look confused. Jack shakes his head.]
Jack: Do te mind if I have a look at that? [Jack gets up and moves closer to Claire.]
Claire: Uh, sure, go ahead.
[Jack sits successivo to Claire, takes the wooden box and opens it. Their smiling faces are reflected in a mirror, which is on the inside lid of the box. An instrumental version of “Catch A Falling Star” plays.]
Jack [sighs]: I’m sorry. I--I wish I knew why he wanted te to have this. [closes the Musica box]
Claire: Yeah, me, too. [puts the Musica box back into the white box] Well, um. It was nice seeing te again. [They both get up.] Thanks for trying to help.
Jack: Where are te staying?
Claire: Uh, just down the road…a motel.
Jack: Why don't te come stay with me?
Claire: Stay with you? [ Jack nods.] I mean, we're…we're strangers.
Jack [laughs]: No, we're not strangers. We're...we're family.
[Original timeline … The armed survivors, with Locke, Claire and Sayid, are hiding in the bushes, observing Widmore’s seemingly undefended submarine … Locke tosses his backpack behind Jack]
SAWYER: Just ‘cause there ain’t any goons on the dock, doesn’t mean they ain’t on the sub. We’re goin’ in hard. Got it? Lapidus, Hugo, Jin, Sun--you’re with me. The rest of te wait 30 seconds, head down the dock behind us. [to Jack and Locke] te think te two can get our backs?
SAWYER: All right. Let’s go home. [runs toward sub]
[Sawyer opens sub hatch … he goes down, followed da Lapidus, Sun hands them a rifle…]
MAN [sub PA system]: After engine room, power the bilges. After engine room, power the bilges, please.
[Sawyer and Lapidus burst into a room, surprising a man sitting at a table]
SAWYER: Where’s the damn captain?
[The man leads them to the captain]
SAWYER: Put your damn hands up.
[Lapidus knocks man unconscious with butt of rifle]
LAPIDUS: Nothin’ personal.
SAWYER: Okay, Hoss, how about te get ready to fuoco this thing up?
LAPIDUS [pointing gun at captain]: I got it.
[Sawyer leaves … the remaining survivors, Claire and Locke head toward sub]
KATE: Let‘s go.
[Locke grabs both backpacks and hands one to Jack]
LOCKE: te sure te won’t reconsider, Jack?
JACK: Yeah, I’m sure.
LOCKE: Whoever told you, te needed to stay had no idea what they were talking about.
JACK: John Locke told me I needed to stay. [Jack pushes Locke off the dock and into the water]
KATE: What happened?
[A shot rings out and Kate goes down, with a left shoulder injury]
[Jack, Sayid and Claire return fuoco at men hiding behind trees … Jack empties his gun, throws it down and lifts Kate]
[Sayid provides cover, while firing at the attackers]
SAYID: Claire, let’s go now! [Claire shoots a man out of a albero … gunfire continues]
[Sawyer hears the commotion above … Jack and Sayid help Kate into the sub … Locke climbs onto the dock with his backpack … Locke is unaffected da the bullets and kills the remaining gunmen … In the sub, Jack is supporting injured Kate as Sayid follows]
SAWYER: What’s going on up there? What happened?
JACK: Widmore’s people shot her….Hurley, I need a first aid kit.
SAWYER: Who else is up there?
[Sawyer goes to the surface]
[Locke shoots an approaching attacker …. He exchanges stares with Sawyer, as Sawyer lowers the sub’s hatch … Claire and Locke are left on the dock]
SAWYER: Lapidus, if te can hear me…DIVE! DIVE!
LAPIDUS [to Captain]: Let’s go!
[levers click, engines power on … Claire shoots another attacker, sees the sub leaving, drops her gun and runs toward sub]
CLAIRE: Hey! Wait! Wait!
LOCKE: Claire! Claire! Wait! [Locke stops her]
JACK: What the hell are te doing?
SAWYER: What we came here to do…leaving.
LOCKE: It’s alright. It’s alright.
CLAIRE: No! They’re leaving us.
LOCKE: No trust me. te don’t want to be on that sub.
[The sub descends]
KATE [gasping]: Claire? Where’s Claire?
JACK: She’s still up there.
KATE: No, we can’t leave without her…we can’t…[groans]
SAWYER: Is she gonna be okay
HURLEY: Jack, I can’t find first-aid kit, dude.
JACK: Jin--my pack. There might be a camicia in there I can use for pressure. [to Kate] It’s okay. Just relax. Everything’s gonna be alright.
JIN: Here. [hands Jack the backpack]
JACK: I think the bullet went straight through…
[Jack reaches into--what he realizes is not his--backpack]
SAWYER [reacting to Jack‘s fright]: What?
[Jack pulls out a C-4 bomb with a timer counting down from 3:54]
HURLEY: Dude, where did that come from?
JACK: Locke…We did exactly what he wanted.
[In the submerged sub, Jack holds the bomb - 3:45 remains on the timer]
JACK: We have to get to the surface.
SAWYER: What the hell?
JACK: We have to get to the surface now!
JIN [on the telephone intercom]: Lapidus, take us up.
LAPIDUS: We’re divin‘!
JIN: Just do it!
LAPIDUS [grabbing captain, at gunpoint]: te heard him. Up!
[Sayid holds and studies the bomb - timer at 3:22, and counting]
HURLEY: Dude how’d that get on the sub?
JACK [tending to Kate]: Locke put it in my pack
JIN: Why would he do that? He wanted to come with us?
SAWYER: Damn right he did, that’s why I shut his culo out.
JACK: He wanted te to shut him out. [3:08 on timer] Any idea how that thing works? Can we turn it off?
SAYID: This watch is jury-rigged to the battery. The battery detonates the explosives.
SAWYER [on intercom phone]: How much time till we’re up, Frank?
LAPIDUS: At least 5 minutes.
SAWYER: We ain’t got 5 minutes. What’s it gonna be Sayid?
SAYID: These wires--they’re leads from the watch. If we disconnect them from the battery, technically speaking, the bomb should be inert.
SAYID: Yes, but te need to pull them out simultaneously; and, I’m not sure….
SAWYER: Step aside.
[2:46 on timer - Sawyer makes a sposta toward the bomb, Sayid stands near alertly]
JACK: Wait! Wait!
SAWYER: What the hell are te doin’, doc?
JACK: Nothing’s gonna happen.
JACK: Don’t pull those wires out. We’re okay. Nothing’s gonna happen.
SAWYER: If I don’t pull these wires, Locke’s gonna blow us to kingdom come.
JACK: No, he’s not! Locke can’t kill us.
JACK: This is what he wanted. [2:27 on timer] This is what he’s been waiting for. Everything that he has done has been to get us here. He wanted to get us all in the same place, at the same time--a nice, enclosed spazio where we had no hopes of getting out of.
JIN: I don’t understand.
JACK: Locke detto that he can’t leave the island without us. I think that he can’t leave the island unless we’re all dead. He told me that he could kill anyone of us whenever he wanted. So, what if he hasn’t because he’s…he’s not allowed to. What if he’s trying to get us to kill each other?
SAWYER: Stay out of my way, doc.
[timer at 1:54]
JACK: Now if he wanted that thing to blow up, why would he put a timer in it? Why not just throw it inside?
SAWYER: I don’t care.
JACK: Nothing is gonna happen.
SAWYER: It’s not your decision to make.
JACK: He can’t kill us!
SAWYER: I’m not gonna stand here and do nothing!
JACK [grabbing Sawyer]: James. We are going to be okay. te just have to trust me.
[1:35 on timer]
SAWYER: Sorry, doc, I don’t.
[Sawyer pulls all the wires from the timer - Sun and Jack gasp - timer pauses at 1:31 and then countdown accelerates]
SAYID [to Jack]: Listen carefully. There’s a well on the main island, half mile south from the camp we just left. Desmond’s inside it. Locke wants him dead, which means you’re going to need him. Do te understand me?
JACK: Why are te telling me this?
SAYID: Because it’s going to be you, Jack.
[Sayid grabs bomb and runs off]
HURLEY [heading toward Sayid]: Sayid!
[Sayid goes into another compartment and the bomb explodes - sub is flooding - alarm sounds - Lapidus gets up from the floor, climbs down ladder to access damage]
LAPIDUS: Ah, hell! [A bulkhead hatch door gives way, knocking him to the floor]
[Jack grabs Kate from beneath the water - the group is disoriented and struggling]
JACK: Are te okay?
HURLEY: What happened? Did Sayid just…?
JIN: Wait! [Sun is pinned against the wall] Hold on. I’ll get te out…Sawyer! I need help!
JACK: Hurley! Hurley! te gotta take Kate out of here?
HURLEY: What about everybody else?
JACK: I’ll take care of them! [grabs an emergency air cylinder]
HURLEY: I have to go after Sayid?
JACK: There is no Sayid!…Listen to me. Take this tank and buddy-breathe and swim out where the blast hole is, okay? Hurley, te can do this, okay?
[Jin and Sawyer try to free Sun - Hurley helps Kate and they flee the sub]
SAWYER: Doc! [Jack joins them]…Push.
JIN: On three.
ALL: One…two…three…[Sawyer grunts as some debris is removed, but Sun remains entangled - the sub rumbles and Sawyer is knocked unconscious da a falling piece of wreckage]
[Jack grabs Sawyer from beneath the water]
JACK: Sawyer! Sawyer!
[Jin relentlessly struggles to free Sun]
SUN: Save yourself.
JIN: I’m going to get te out of here. [to Jack, who has unconscious Sawyer] Go. Go. I’ll get her free.
JACK: No, we can do this!
JIN: Just go! Save Sawyer.
JACK [grabbing the last air cylinder]: Jin take this. I can get him out without it.
JIN: No, te can’t Jack….Just go!
[Jack reluctantly swims off with Sawyer, out of the sub through the blast hole]
JIN [resurfacing after another attempt at freeing Sun]: Ahh…Uhhh
SUN: Jin. te have to go.
JIN: No. I can do this.
SUN: No. No, te can’t. [crying] Please go.
JIN [lovingly cupping Sun‘s face]: I won’t leave you. [Jin goes under attempting to free Sun as the water has now risen to neck level] I’m gonna get te out of here.
SUN [holds Jin‘s face imploringly]: Go…Please! Go.
JIN [speaking Korean, helplessly looking around]: I won’t leave you. I will never leave te again…[in English] I Amore you, Sun. [they embrace and kiss]
SUN [crying]: I Amore you.
[They embrace and baciare as water rises to their faces - the sub falls to the bottom of the ocean - completely immersed - the lifeless hands of Jin and Sun separate - Sun‘s body floats, her hair covering her face]
[Sideways timeline - Locke is being wheeled down the hospital hallway]
ORDERLY: Is somebody meeting you, Mr. Locke
LOCKE: Yes, my fiancée, Helen. She’s, um…[distracted as he looks at Jin, with yellow fiori in hand, as they pass in the hallway] …probably stuck in traffic….Hey, I’ll take it from here. I’m pretty good at this.
ORDERLY: Well, the best of luck to you, sir.
LOCKE: Thank you. See ya. [Locke wheels himself]
JACK: Mr. Locke. I’m glad I caught ya. I hadn’t have a chance to say goodbye yet.
LOCKE: Well, goodbye…and thanks again, Dr. Shepherd. [they shake hands]
JACK [hesitating]: I went to see your father.
JACK: When te didn’t want the surgery, I felt like I had to understand why…and, uh, I thought that if I could find out why you’re in this chair, that maybe…
LOCKE: I was in a plane crash. I had my-my private pilot’s license for a week, and, uh, I begged my father to be my first official passenger. He was terrified of flying. But, I looked him right in the eye--I told him that he could trust me. And we barely got off the ground. I still don’t re--I don’t remember what I did wrong, but it was my fault. It was my fault. This man, who I loved più than anything, will never walk, o talk or…
JACK: te know, the first time te and I met, uh, back at the--at the airport…you told me that my father was gone, and, uh, it hurt to hear that, but I knew te were right. Your father’s gone, too, Mr. Locke.
LOCKE: Uh, no, no, he’s not.
JACK: Yes, he--he is, and te can punish yourself as much as te want and that’s never gonna bring him back…What happened, happened…and…you can let it go.
LOCKE: What makes te think letting go is so easy?
JACK: It’s not. In fact, I don’t really know how to do it myself. And, that’s why I was hoping that…maybe te could go first.
LOCKE [laughs, chokes up]: Goodbye, Dr. Shephard. [wheels away]
JACK [calls after him]: I can help you, John…I wished te believed me.
[Locke stops briefly and is deep in thought, then wheels out of Jack’s sight]
[Original timeline - Jack struggles to get himself and Sawyer onto the spiaggia - Jack is relieved when Sawyer coughs - Kate, aided da Hurley, unisciti them]
KATE: Jack…I couldn’t find you. I couldn‘t find you. [they embrace, Kate sobs]
HURLEY: Is he okay?
JACK: He got hit in the head pretty hard, but he’s breathing.
KATE: What about Jin and Sun?
[Jack shakes his head - Kate cries - Hurley sobs out loud - Jack walks away, stands in the ocean and is overcome da grief]
[Locke looks out from the dock, looking fierce and frightful]
LOCKE: It sunk.
CLAIRE: What, the submarine? They…they were all on it, everyone…What? They’re…they’re all dead?
LOCKE: Not all of them. [Locke puts on his pack, grabs his rifle]
CLAIRE: Wait. W-where are te going?
LOCKE: To finish what I started. [walks off and leaves Claire alone]
