The only implication you can get from that is that it was leaving in a hurry....exactly why I don't know. But that same episode is where "sound" is used to keep the smoke monster at bay.
The other thing I was thinking is that since Juliette is an "other" the smoke monster maybe was getting warned...your not allowed to touch these people.
Perhaps there will be a clue in what episodes are left.
