The survivors' trap appears a success: Ethan has started chasing Claire. Jack tackles him but loses his gun in the process. Ethan and Jack wrestle till Jack gains the upper hand and Sayid, Sawyer and Locke approach, armed. Locke comforts Claire, and Jack keeps punching Ethan, for fun.
They have captured Ethan at gunpoint, but before they can question him, Charlie shoots him six times with the gun Jack dropped.
The title plays on the phrase "getting even". Charlie shoots Ethan out of revenge.
