Having been captured by the Dharma Initiative on the island in 1977 after being mistaken for a "hostile", Sayid meets a young Ben Linus who offers to help him escape, while Sawyer and the Dharma members try to interrogate him for information. Sayid flashes back to his days as an assassin for Ben who releases him from his contract, and how Sayid later met the manipulative adult Ben in Dominica who persuaded him persuade him to return to the island, and how Sayid met Ilana, a private investigator/contract killer, who abducted him to return to Australia for his past crimes.
