Locke, Eko, and Desmond wake up on the dusty floor of a run-down factory-like room. The room is very large and dark. Broken windows and remnants of
things that used to be there are seen everywhere. The three men are lying on the floor.
“Where are we?” Locke asks.
“I don’t know,” answers Desmond.
The men get up slowly and examine their setting. They can see that this place has been long abandoned.
“We must have been transported here because I turned the key,” Desmond says.
“Yeah,” says Locke barely understanding what just occurred.
Desmond opens the only door in the room and sees a city. The bright lights, buildings, and smells are only a few hundred feet away.
“My friends, we have reached salvation!” exclaims Desmond.
“What do you mean?” asks Locke.
“Take a look outside this door,” answers Desmond.
All thee of them are outside looking at the city. Desmond and Locke wonder what city it is and talk about what they will tell people concerning their
entire ordeal. Eko remains quite.
“Locke you killed all of them,” says Eko sadly. “All of our friends on the island are dead. The button didn’t get pushed.”
“There not dead priest,” Desmond says.
“How can you be so sure?” Eko asks.
“I’m not. The important thing is that we are alive and are by this city,” says Desmond enthusiastically. “I don’t believe that they are dead
because the key wouldn’t allow them to be dead. The key’s purpose was to help in the event that the button wasn’t pushed. Helping wouldn’t be
killing everyone on the island. Anyway, I am leaving you two. I must find the love of my life and tell her that I am okay. She must have missed me so.
You two can do whatever you want, I don’t care anymore. See you in another life.”
Desmond walks away toward the city. The city was Sydney, Australia, but this was unknown to them.
“Eko I am leaving too I guess. I take it you are not leaving as you are examining this who place. I wish the best for you,” Locke says.
“Goodbye John,” Eko says, studying the large room.
Locke walks away, occasionally looking back at the building that they have been transported to. It was currently night, a beautiful night at that. Eko
begins picking things up and examining them.
