Run Time
When Shannon's asthma becomes a problem, everyone becomes convinced that Sawyer is hoarding some inhalers from the wreck. Jack and Sayid torture him, but he agrees to give up the inhalers in return for a kiss from Kate. She agrees, and he says that he doesn't have the inhalers after all. Sun helps Shannon by making a eucalyptus salve to clear her bronchial passages.In flashbacks, we learn that Sawyer is a confidence man. His parents were ruined by another grifter named Sawyer, whose name he took as an alias when he entered a similar life of crime to pay some debts. He hates himself for this, which explains why he seems to go to such great lengths to make everyone else hate him. We do not know his real name. (Later episodes revealed that his name is James Ford.)After the torture incident , despite a plea from Kate, Sayid sets off alone to explore the island's shoreline, disgusted with himself for breaking a vow never to do anything like that again. Charlie convinces Claire to move to the caves; they seem to be striking up a close relationship.
