Locke barely has time to congratulate Elliot before the wing of the plane falls, causing an explosion. Later that night, Jack treats him and tells him that he is most likely suffering amnesia from the crash. He suggests searching for items that were his in the wreckage in order to jog his memory.

Elliott talks to Kate about finding his luggage, and she suggests that she look in the pile of suitcases at the end of the beach. Elliott goes to the far end of the beach and finds a backpack. When he picks up the pack, Beady Eyes attacks him. He promises that he is going to destroy the photograph and then kill Elliott.
