Jack get lessons on leadership from Sawyer, Phil gets more suspicious

Jack asks Phil which house is James LaFleur's and Phil points him to the house. Phil tells Jack that LaFleur doesn't like to be called James. As Jack walks away, Phil gets a suspicious look on his face, once again indicating that he does not trust the new recruits, especially the ones that aren't real recruits.

Jack is surprised when Juliet answers the door at Sawyer's house. She lets him in to talk to Sawyer, who is sitting in the living room reading a book. Jack asks him what's going on with Sayid. Sawyer tells him that Sayid is safe for now. Jack asks him "Where do we go from here?" and Sawyer replies "I'm working on it." Jack gets snippy as says "It looks like you were reading a book." Sawyer smiles and says that Winston Churchill read a book every night, even during the Blitz and it made him think better. He says "That's how I like to run things, I think." He continues saying that Jack only reacted to thing and didn't think we he was running things and a lot of people ended up dead. Sawyer tells him that he's going to go back to reading his book and thinking because that's how he saved Jack's ass and he's going to do the same for Sayid tomorrow. As Jack is leaving Sawyer says that he needs to do is get a good night's sleep and to let him do what he does. Sawyer then says "Now ain't that a relief?" and Jack replies "Yeah." Jack really seems relieved to not have to make the decisions right now.

As Jack leaves, Sawyer walks out and exchanges an awkward wave with Kate who is standing by her house. Things are probably going to get tense with the Sawyer, Kate and Juliet triangle in the coming episodes.

I have to say, it was nice to see Sawyer put Jack in his place in this scene. Jack's power on the island went unchecked for way too long.
