The survivors begin to experience the effects of moving the Island. Locke, who was with the Others before the flash, is isolated afterwards. Back on the beach, the survivors are perplexed, as their camp has disappeared. Juliet and Sawyer noticed that the freighter is no longer visible. Daniel and the survivors on the Zodiac raft manage to travel with the Island, and return to the beach with the rest of the survivors. Daniel says that the must find a man-made object on the Island, so they head to the Swan station, a 15 minute walk away.
Locke climbs a hill, and is almost clipped by a plane that crashes. On the ground, he sees a statue of the Virgin Mary, which had fallen out of the plane. Locke knows that it is the Nigerian drug smugglers' plane, which he and Boone discovered. Locke arrives to the plane, hanging from a cliff. He starts to climb up, trying to find any survivors, when someone starts to shoot at him. He is shot in the leg, and falls to the ground. The identity of the shooter is revealed, Ethan Rom. Ethan assumes that he was on the plane, and wants to know who is on their. Locke explains that he did not come from the plane, and that Ben appointed him as the leader of the Others. Ethan calls this comment ridiculous, and points his gun at him, but time shifts again.
Another flash occurs, and the destroyed Hatch is no longer visible, prompting them to find the door, knowing they have gone back in time. Juliet uncovers the door. Sawyer finds the rear entrance to the Swan, and bangs on the door. Daniel says that it will not work, because he has yet to see Desmond. If it has not happen, it cannot happen he explains. The survivors leave, heading back to the camp, but Daniel stays, and grabs his journal from his backpack. He bangs on the door, and Desmond appears, pointing a gun at him. Daniel tells Desmond that he is "uniquely special" and "the rules" do not apply to him. He tells Desmond that in the future, he must go to Oxford University to meet his mother if he leaves the Island.
Kate and Aaron are at home, watching cartoons. The doorbell rings, and Kate answers the door. It is an attorney, Dan Norton, working for an unknown client. Norton claims that he has a court order to take a test to determine the actual relationship of Aaron to Kate. Kate refuses, and Norton says that if she does not comply, he will get the sheriff. Kate tells him to get the sheriff, and closes the door on him. Kate then packs up a suitcase, grabbing a envelope full of cash and a gun. She takes Aaron, saying that they are going on vacation, and they leave the house.
Ben and Jack see the news on the television, showing a report that Hurley had escaped from Santa Rosa and that he had apparently murdered a man. Ben realizes that recruiting the Oceanic 6 will be harder than he had originally surmised.
By-standers take pictures of Hurley, believing he just killed a man.
On a boat, Penny and Desmond wake up. Desmond remembers what Daniel told him on the Island, but Penny says it was just a bad dream. Desmond realizes that it was not a dream, but a memory. He decides that he must go to Oxford University to find Daniel's mother.
