Sawyer, Kate, and Karl reach their Island at night, and a reluctant Kate wishes to return for Jack. Meanwhile, Jack is interrogated by "Others" constable, Isabel about the incident with Juliet. When she mentions the meaning of his tattoo, he recalls his vacation in the paradisaical island of Phuket, in Thailand, where he dated the sexy, mystic, and mysterious local Achara. Ben has an infection in his spinal column, and Jack negotiates the freedom of Juliet, who was going to be sentenced to death for Pickett's murder. Later Jack recalls what happened to him when he forced Achara to disclose her innermost secret.

Jack's tattoos don't actually mean "He walks among us, but he is not one of us." In fact this is nowhere near correct. A word by word explanation of the four Chinese characters on the tattoo: The first character means "eagle". The second character means "strike", as a verb. The third one means "long". The final one means "sky","space","void","empty". These characters are pronounced "ying ji chang kong" (in PinYin) These four characters are taken from a famous poem written by Chairman Mao Tse-tung (Mao Zhedong) and can be roughly translated as "Eagles cleave the air". But the poem itself has a deeper meaning. In the end of the first stanza, the poet asks, "who masters fate's rise and descent?" See more
