Nikki comes to the beach where Sawyer and Hurley are playing ping-pong, stumbles, whispers some unintelligible words and apparently dies. Hurley doesn't understand Nikki's words: "Paulo lies..." and the group searches Paulo in the woods. They find him like Nikki and they believe the couple have been poisoned. Meanwhile, the past of the actress Nikki and the Brazilian chef Paulo in Sydney is disclosed, when they poisoned Nikki's lover and stole a fortune in diamonds, and detailing how they landed on the island and about them trying to retrieve the stolen diamonds with both attempting to betray each other showing their interactions with all the other characters, which were only glimpsed in previous episodes.

During a flashback, Nikki is seen exiting a movie/TV soundstage (where her guest appearance on the fictional show "Exposé" is being shot) directly opposite the Sydney Opera House. In reality, this is the site of Admiralty House and Kirribilli House, the Sydney residences of the Governor General and Prime Minister of Australia. See more
When Paulo picks up the nicotine gum from the bag, the cover of his passport says "Republica Federativa do Brazil" when the correct text in a Brazilian passport is "República Federativa do Brasil". The word "Brazil" is misspelled in Portuguese, and word "Republica" is missing an accent. See more
