In the freighter, Sayid presses Michael to tell him what happened to him since he left the island. In a long flashback, Michael is in despair in Manhattan, since Walt refuses to talk to him after discovering the truth about the deaths of Ana Lucia and Libby. When Michael decides to commit suicide in an alley, he is saved by Tom Friendly who convinces him to work for his people by infiltrating the Kahana freighter to save the lives of the survivors in the island. Michael commits sabotage in the radio room and in the engine of the vessel following direct orders of Ben. After the explanations, Sayid delivers the traitor to Captain Gault. Meanwhile on the island, Ben is released by Locke and convinces Alex, Karl, and Rousseau to leave the camp and move to a hidden sanctuary. But they are ambushed by unseen killers. Written by

The song playing when Michael gets into the car at the beginning of his flashback is "It's Getting Better" by Cass Elliot, the same musician that performed "Make Your Own Kind of Music" the song Desmon listened to in the hatch in "Man of Science, Man of Faith," (S.2 E.1) and in the pub in "Flashes Before Your Eyes."

During the scenes at the Suva port, a large airliner is shown nearby taking off or landing. In fact there is no major airport near Suva capable of handling that size of aircraft. In Honolulu, the international airport is close to the harbor and was probably the source of that airliner. See more
What do you want?
Why would I help the son of a bitch who kidnapped my son?
We gave him back to you in one piece, Mike, you're the one who lost him. You told him, didn't you? You couldn't carry the guilt of what you did to those two women all by yourself, so you shared it with a 10-year-old kid. Is that why you wanna kill yourself, Michael? Because that's the way he looks at you now? Because he knows you're a murderer?
