She agrees and tries to get Sawyer’s help.

With Locke distracted Kate frees Miles from the boathouse and takes him to Ben where Miles says he can tell his boss that Ben was already dead, but it’ll cost him 3.2 million dollars. Ben asks why not 3.3 or 3.4 and Miles gives him two days to get it. Ben says that he’s currently a prisoner and might find it hard so Miles gives him a week. When Locke finds Kate he tells her she isn’t welcome here anymore.
