Video One - Stuck AboardEdit
Sam speaks with Ockham aboard the Christiane I and requests to be left off at Christmas Island, only to be informed that they had missed Christmas Island by 150 miles, and that that would be the closest he would be getting to Christmas, as they would be docking in Jakarta in January. Sam inquires about a way off, and Ockham jokingly states that he could start a mutiny, however, without pockets as deep as Talbot's, he wouldn't bother. Sam inquires as to who he gets his funding from, and Ockham reveals that it is from a syndicate, but knows nothing else, and explains that anonymity is not uncommon in his line of work. As Sam leaves Ockham, he notices Talbot leaving his quarters, failing to properly close the door behind him; spotting an opportunity, Sam enters.
Activity One - Talbot's CabinEdit
Using the silver key to open the drawer on the right hand side of Talbot's desk, reveals three more items:
Using the gold key on the drawer underneath the bench reveals Talbot's briefcase, which requires the combination to open it. Using the phone charger, plug it into the wall outlet on the desk, and plug the phone into it, this will fully charge it. A list of contacts appears:
The briefcase contains the letters A.M.M. on the front, referring to A. Mullins. Entering the combination of 852 930 opens the briefcase.
Video Two - FailureEdit
Video Three - SuccessEdit
If the combination is solved in time, Sam is able to open Talbot's briefcase, and discovers documents within. One of these documents was entitled Proposed Salvage of "The Black Rock" Shipwreck, and shows that it was affiliated with The Maxwell Group, which is a division of Widmore Industries.
After leaving the room, Talbot discovers Sam and asks him why he was in the room. Sam states that he had noticed the door was open, and that he was just closing it for him. Talbot claims that Sam was looking for something, other than the Black Rock. Ockham asks if everything is alright, and Talbot states that Sam was just leaving. Talbot then informs Sam that some people believe he is an asset to the expedition, but he is not one of them.

Messages - Sean DowlingEdit
The message itself contains Morse Code, which corresponds to a hidden message of "OPENSTEGO", in reference to an open source steganography software.
Web Browser - James Clerk MaxwellEdit
Sam visits a website called AnswerMyQuestions.org in order to search for the term "Maxwell". It yields several results, one of which linking to a page on James Clerk Maxwell, naming him a "pioneer of electromagnetism".
E-Mail - Tracey REdit
Sam sent e-mail to Tracey inquiring about the strange electrical disturbance that occurred on the bridge of the Christiane I. Tracey replies that the disturbance was most likely caused by lightning, a temporary failure inside the electrical system, or a strong wave of electromagnetic energy. Tracey directs his attention to a website known as BaliHolidayFun.com and suggests that he take a holiday as soon as he can.
Bali Holiday FunEdit
Tracey's email leads the user to BaliHolidayFun.com. The page itself contains no links or navigation, however, there is an e-mail address at the bottom of the page: firstname.lastname@example.org. Sending an e-mail to this address, will reply with an e-mail containing scrambled characters, and hidden within is a link to a picture of a Stegosaurus. The subject of the e-mail is "Amuses Mr Ole", an anagram for Samuel Morse. Opening the photo in the OPENSTEGO program, prompts a pop-up requesting a password.

Video Diary ThreeEdit
Sam states that he believes he is on the right track, and that being stuck on the Christiane I may be worthwhile. Sam reveals that he has discovered Talbot is connected to The Maxwell Group, which is the source of the cryptic e-mails he had been receiving. Sam also found that the e-mails that were sent to him were coordinates, which he will use on Talbot's chart plotter. Sam then reminisces about Sonya, and how she would always speak her mind, and expected the same of him, which he feels brought him out of his shell.
