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.

For this episode, the characters of Nikki (Kiele Sanchez
) and Paolo (Rodrigo Santoro
) had to be convincingly incorporated into the plane crash scene featured in the pilot. The editing crew meticulously watched hours of original footage to determine where additional scenes could be placed, which camera angles had not been used before, and which characters could be used for additional shots. The original beach set (still largely intact) was revisited and additional shots with Nikki, Paolo and several original cast members were filmed. In some instances, acting was performed in front of a green-screen to incorporate the actors in existing (unused) footage. The resulting scene is a seamless cut of old, new and altered shots.
