Over the course of the episode, Jack's body, torn apart by the bomb at the end of the last episode, recomposes itself gradually, and regrows its skin, which is at first missing (burnt off by the explosion?). A scene early on in the episode however shows Agent Johnson retrieving Jack's severed arm, with the skin on it perfectly intact. Later on, when we see Jack's body in the morgue recomposed but without any skin on it, that same arm, like the rest of the body, no longer has skin on it. See more »


Rhys Williams: How're you, love?
Gwen Cooper: My best friend's belly had a bomb go off in it last night. Someone's been trying to kill us ever since. I'm traveling at 70 miles an hour on top of a bed of potatoes, and I think I'm going to be sick.
Rhys Williams: Travel sick, is it?
Gwen Cooper: When have you ever known me to be travel sick?
Rhys Williams: Well... when have you ever traveled like this?
Gwen Cooper: Mhm.
Rhys Williams: On an empty stomach...
[off Gwen's look]
Rhys Williams: What? What?
Gwen Cooper: You know some of those announcements you, you rehearse in your head. And this wasn't quite what I had in mind
