6 hours ago, Ben comes back to the Others’ camp. He orders his troops to get ready to get to the losties camp immediately. Alex goes to see her boyfriend Carl so that he can warn the losties.
Alex says that the Others will kill the losties. Jack says that in order for everything to work, it all has to happen at the same time. The losties will make their way to the radio tower, Sayeed, Jack and another one will stay at the camp to detonate the tents with their guns since they do not have enough wire.
