Sawyer awoke in the middle of the night to a noise somewhere outside his hut. He saw that Kate hadn't woken, nor had Gunner, so he attempted to go back to bed. But then he heard it again. Maybe it was the disorientation from being in a state of flux between asleep and wakefulness, but it sounded like a struggle. He decided to go check it out.
Outside he tried to locate the sound and once he did he saw that it was Jin. His mouth was gagged and he was being bound and dragged away by Others. Before Sawyer could react, before he could even make the decision to either try and save Jin's life or stay with his family and protect their's, he was being bound and dragged off too.
From outside his own hut, Jack was witnessing all of this. He stayed frozen, watching as the others dragged Jin and Sawyer away. If he squinted- who are we kidding, of course he was squinting- he could see Eko and Locke being dragged away farther down the beach in the same manner. All he could think was that in the next few seconds he'd be next.
Nothing was happening. The rest of the men were being taken beyond the treeline and into the jungle he was just being left alone. Jack could not comprehend this, but he wasn't just going to stand there.
He ran as fast as he could to the Others until he reached them. And once he did reach them, he deliberately fell over them, into their arms.
"NO!" He yelled. "YOU CAN'T TAKE ME! LET ME GO!"
The Other's hands that he fell into promptly dropped him on the ground. They continued moving but Jack latched onto one of their ankles. "WHY DO YOU WANT ME?" he screamed, coughing up the dirt and soil he was collecting in his mouth as the Other dragged him with his foot.
KNOW YOU WANT ME BUT WHY THEM? I WON'T LET MY FRIENDS PAY FOR MY
MISTAKES!" He yelled. "NOT THAT I'VE EVER MADE ANY
He was still being dragged by the limping Other, but now Jack had grabbed hold of a better part of the man's leg and was sitting on his foot with his arms wrapped around the thigh.
"KATE WILL BE SO MISERABLE WITHOUT ME- PLEASE! PLEASE DON'T TAKE ME!"
"He's making too much noise," one Other
"He's already seen us," another muttered.
"Fine, bring him along!"
And that's how Jack, along with Sawyer, Jin, Hurley, Eko, Sayid and Locke, got taken by the Others.
