Ben takes Jack, Sun, and Desmond to meet with Faraday's mother, scientist Eloise Hawking, (whom Desmond remembers years earlier leading him on the path to the island). Eloise tells them when and where the island will appear in time and the "window" to reach it, as well as the circumstances that brought them there in the first place. Jack decides to return with the corpse of Locke despite his doubts as to what may lie head for them, while Kate, Sayid, and Hurley need more convincing. Jack also visits his grandfather, residing in a nursing home, which leads him to do a little soul searching to seek his path. Written by

While he is waiting to board the plane, Hurley can be seen reading the graphic novel "Y: The Last Man." Its author, Brian K. Vaughan
, has been a co-producer on a large number of recent Lost episodes (although not this one). See more
During the Flight 316 crash scene the plane makes noises like an empty barrel as if fuselage panels were banging against each other. Even in severe turbulence airplanes don't make such sounds. Usually it's just plastic panels squeaking and rattling. See more
I'm sorry to have to tell you this, Desmond, but the Island isn't done with you yet.
