The lesson of this episode? COMM - UN - IC - A - TION. I mean, you'd think that without the modern time-wasters such as cable, the internet and Boggle, these castaways would have enough downtime to, say, have a conversation. But, no. Instead, when Claire asks what's really going on, Charlie stares off into space, contemplatively. When Kate and company interrogate Patchie, they actually just glare at each other with a momentary inquiry: "So, the Others, man. That's some messed up stuff. Right? Yeah?" And don't get me started on John "Loose Canon" Locke. Whenever he wants answers, he blows things up. And then stares off into space, contemplatively. Good talk.
