~The Castaways all heard a helicopter flying over the island at various points and times, and were excited at the prospect of rescue – except for the Reverend who continued to express his desire to stay and colonize.
~Jack took charge, tasking people to write HELP on the beach, and build up the campfire to create a smoke signal.
But a heated dispute over leadership ensued when Jack tried to appoint Spencer and Harper as co-leaders under him. Harper set about recruiting “Squad” members to wear strips of fabric in support of her campaign.

~Everyone became worried about the missing Captain. Sandy revealed that he had invited her to go alone to a cave. The Reverend salvaged the bloody cap from the fire and set about looking for the Captain.
~Meanwhile, Timothy was wracked with guilt over what he had done, and was not good at hiding it. However, Owen was unperturbed and very determined to keep their secret.
~ Uncertain of their futures, Sandy and Chip found solace by the fire, conversing about hot dogs.
