Emma asks for her mother. She says she's waiting for them in Los Angeles . Ana Lucia promises to get her to Los Angeles to her mother. Ana Lucia looks around inland at the Island and down the beach. As the shot pulls away toward the Island showing the chaos on the beach, the tail can be seen sinking under the surface.

Down on the beach, Ana Lucia says that they need to get off the beach. Nathan wants to stay on the beach and Goodwin agrees. Ana Lucia says that they have the black box. Cindy says that they were flying for two hours in the wrong direction, so no one will know where to find them.

He asks her if she has kids and she answers that she doesn't. He says that they should let Nathan go because they are not savages. She says that she would have cut off his finger already if she were a savage and walks off.

That night, the pit door opens. Goodwin lowers a rope and pulls Nathan out. He tells Nathan that they think Ana Lucia is going to hurt him.
