Yeah, the problem with that storyline is that it makes absolutely no sense, not within the episode and not within the larger context of the series. I had assumed at the time it had something to do with Others that were off island, perhaps, so that Jack had encountered them BEFORE he came to the island, but there's no evidence of that. And maybe she was "special" like Miles, Hurley, Walt, etc., but we don't really know and it sort of doesn't matter. I guess we could view it, obliquely, as another warning about asking too many questions or poking your nose in things you don't understand.
