Following a past memory about Faraday, Desmond travels to Oxford University in England where he tries to find Faraday's mother, to find a way to return to the island in which the search leads him back to Charles Whidmore. Back on the island, Miles, Faraday, Locke, Juliet, Sawyer and Charlotte continue to skip through time and they have an encounter with a group of "Others" in the 1950s where they meet the then-leader Richard Alpert, whom is still the same age, and whom have in their possession a stolen nuclear bomb.
