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.
Did You Know?
Jack asks Ben on the plane "How can you read?" Ben says "My mother taught me" Earlier in season 3 we learned that Ben's mother died giving birth to him. See more
On the flight to Guam there is a lighted sign in the aircraft that says "No Smoking / Fasten Seat Belt / Use Seat Bottom Cushion for Flotation". Transoceanic flights are required to have life rafts and life jackets for every passenger. "Seat Botttom Cushion" equipped aircraft are restricted to overland flights and those that stay within just a few miles of the coastline. See more
Thomas the Apostle. When Jesus wanted to return to Judea, knowing that he would probably be murdered there, Thomas said to the others, "Let us also go there and we might die with him." But Thomas was not remembered for this bravery. His claim to fame came later when he refuses to acknowledge the resurrection. He just couldn't wrap his mind around it. The story goes that he needed to touch Jesus wounds to be convinced.
So was he?
Of course he was. We are all convinced sooner or later, Jack.
