Description
The injured Boone is in bad shape after his fall from the cliff in the airplane. He's lost a lot of blood, one of his lungs has collapsed and his right leg is crushed. Kate is sent to go and get alcohol from Sawyer. On her way back she discovers that Claire has gone into labor. Sayid surprises Shannon with a "torch" lit dinner at which Shannon tells Sayid that Boone is only her step-brother, and that he is "kind of" in love with her. Boone has lost a lot of blood and needs a transfusion of type A negative. Jack sends Charlie to find one of the other survivors with a matching blood type. When he unsuccessfully returns (only four people knew their blood type), Jack decides to give him some of his O negative blood. Jack tries to use bamboo as a needle but can't pierce his skin. Sun comes up with a solution and retrieves a sea urchin. Using the urchin's spines, Jack begins to give Boone his blood. Jin, working on the new raft, hears Kate's call for help and rushes to her and Claire. Despite the language barrier, Kate is able to tell Jin to go and find Jack. Jin rushes to the caves only to find Jack occupied with the blood transfusion. Jack tells Jin (with the aid of Sun translating) to take Charlie to Kate and Claire. Jack then tells Charlie to give Kate instructions on how to deliver the baby. As Jack begins looking pale, Sun stops the transfusion. Jack then tries to heal Boone's leg but finds it beyond repair and fatal unless it is amputated. Jack seeks the help of Michael to find a way to cut off Boone's leg. Boone suddenly regains consciousness and tells Jack to just let him go.Boone dies, but reveals to Jack that he and Locke had discovered a mysterious hatch, and Locke had told him (Boone) not to tell anybody else. Claire gives birth to a healthy baby boy. Jack goes looking for Locke, claiming that Boone was murdered. In flashbacks, we see Jack's wedding to Sarah, a former patient whom he "fixed" after she was injured in a car wreck.
