Here he calls a woman, asking her to meet him at the airport. When she arrives, the woman is revealed to be Kate. He tells her about the funeral, and she claims that there was no reason for her to be there. He then explains, out of nowhere, that he has been flying across the Pacific Ocean every Friday, and coming back,(using a "Golden Pass" provided by Oceanic Airlines), hoping that the plane will crash. The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the Earth 's Oceanic divisions Distraught, Jack tells her that it was a mistake to leave the island, that they "were not supposed" to leave the island and that they have to go back. She disagrees and, crying and visibly distraught, comments that "he's going to be wondering where I am" and gets back into her car and drives off into the night. A passenger jet soars off overhead as Jack yells after her "We have to go back!" As seen in There's No Place Like Home, Kate then stops her car, gets out and begins to yell at Jack for abandoning her and Aaron. " There's No Place Like Home " is the Season finale of the American Broadcasting Company 's fourth season of the serial drama She says that there is no reason to go back, and then departs, leaving Jack alone.
Later, Jack is seen attempting to enter the funeral home from before. Finding it locked for the night, he breaks the door open with a rock, and enters. Jack opens the coffin containing the man from before (previously revealed to be named Jeremy Bentham, though the his body is not immediately shown), but he is interrupted by Ben. Ben tells him that he heard about how Jack had been flying and trying to crash on the Island, and that this is "Very dark, Jack". He tells him that this won't work because they (the survivors) all have to "go back together". He also asks Jack if he has spoken to "him". Jack says he has and that "he " has warned him that he was in trouble. Jack also responds by saying it would be practically impossible to get the other survivors together, but Ben says he can help. Just as the two are about to leave, Ben reminds him that they will need all the survivors to go back including the man in the coffin. The man in the coffin is then shown to be none other than Locke.
Throughout the series, it has been stated numerous times that Jack is a natural leader. This has been demonstrated many times by his ability to think quickly and analyze crisis situations. Jack intentionally represses many of his emotions of fear and anxiety, usually in order to remain strong for the other crash survivors. The emotion that he seems to repress most, however, is his deep love for Kate Austen, which he has only twice ever fully admitted to, and even then only once in a very emotional tone of voice. Katherine Anne Austen is a Fictional character on the ABC television series Lost, played by Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly This seems to be because he believes that Kate does not/cannot love him, but rather loves Sawyer, and therefore, there is no point in telling her of his deep devotion. Jack's habit of repression sometimes does flare out, usually in his propensity to become violent when he is enraged. He is also prone to become highly obsessive, which also can lead to violence. Jack is deep down a very caring person and has sacrificed himself for his crashmates several times.
