Remember the game Locke was playing on his break at the box company?  What was he called.......was it Sgt. Locke, or something like that?  I think he is in that "game" mode, and is going militant on us.  I think he is hiding stuff from the other losties because he knows that the less someone knows about something, the less they can talk about something.  I think we have seen the beginnings of Locke being a leader!!
"Colonel Locke"

& I'm getting a similar vibe from him these days, too.   :-\

Nice remark Nancy. But Colonel Locke looks more like a dictator and conqueror than a leader. Jack and a less frightened Sayid are more like leaders to me.

I don't think Locke blew up the sub.  I believe the sub would have some sort of conning tower, a raised portion in the middle of the sub.  That would be the place to drop the explosives to do the most damage.  This looks like it is just a hatch in the ground.

I still have no freaking clue as to what the relationship between Dharma, the Others, and the Island is, and it's driving me nuts!  But, I am so psyched about finding out how Locke got in the wheelchair, because I think it's going to tell us a whole lot about what's going on with him right now.  And, I'm looking forward to him confronting Ben.  I don't really care about them finding the sub, because we have known about it for so long, and the whole Kate and Jack thing is giving me "Party of Five" flashbacks, so I'm ready to see some action!

Found on ew.com in Doc Jensen column.

 I can tell you with certainty that the episode contains some truly stunning developments pertaining to the future of the castaways on the Island..

Your tease for tonight's episode from executive producer Damon Lindelof is as follows:

''The final five seconds of this episode are my favorite five seconds of the season.''


Sounds like a great episode. I am so ready!!

If one of the Others asks Locke, "don't you know me?" If momento's of Locke's past are in the possession of the Others, or if Jack "wants" to fix Ben, then the Grand Unifying Theory is strengthened.  It makes sense that, if the Others are able travel to various quantum realities (watch What the Bleep movie or read the grand unifying theory on this page), then it really doesn't matter when someone joins the Others.  They are able to travel back to a time preceding their entry.  Thus, Jack or Locke may have been the Great Man who recruited Mikail.  If this is not the blend of science and spirituality that explains the happenings on the island, I don't know what will.

Puff,

That could seriously be the answer.  LOST has sometimes been tied to The Philadelphia Experiment.  In a movie about that subject, a 30 something man and a woman that travelled back in time from the 1980s-90s are dropped on a desert island right after the beginning of WWII.  Later on in the movie, when the remainder of the time travelling crew returns to the present, a limo pulls up, the window rolls down, and lo and behold it's the two people dropped on the island, but now in their 70s!  In another popular urban myth similar to the LOST story, a man is inexplicably drawn to investigate this abandoned military base, and though he does not remember being there before, several people on the site recognize him and call him by name, and it turns out he was part of the original staff but does not remember it.

So, maybe Locke is Jacob.  Maybe Jack is Jacob.  At this point, I don't think anything is out of the question.

Ah, you gotta love that spoilerish CTV...

Tonight's episode has been a long time coming and I know that I've talked to a few of you already about our shared anticipation/excitement about it. I said it before and I'll say it again here - I don't want to expect too much from the writers but I hope that they follow up last week with a good Locke episode or at least a decent explanation for why he's in a wheelchair... and seeing the previews, maybe another insight into Locke's character and penchant for disaster or for blowing things up.

I'm looking forward to the Ben-Locke scene because I always think back to that old episode with Ben saying, "I came here for you John, we're the good guys, blah blah blah." I don't really want to say that Locke is out for vengeance or feels wronged/duped by Ben, because I think it's more of, 'Locke has a personal agenda and an unexplainable connection to the island'. The last few episodes have made me re-examine my thoughts on the situation between John Locke and the Others because Locke is definitely one of the most intriguing characters on the show.

As far as the sub and the C4 goes, I guess we'll just have to wait and see. :)

Oh yeah, I agree with Thlay that S1 Hunter Locke is way better than S2 Button-pushing Locke... :)

Why do I get the feeling that Ben will reveal a bunch of truly intriguing stuff to Locke, but just out of hearing range for the audience.  And it will frustrate the %#^$! out of us!

Quick, where's that wonderful gal with the boyfriend that can read lips? And do we have anyone that speaks any other possible foreign language that we might need to translate later on the show?

Just kidding... :D

Have a good show everyone and let's hope that the writers give us another reason for Locke to say "Oops!" :D

I like seeing people proved wrong.  Anyways, I thought tonight's episode was probably the best one ever.  It's at least in the top 3.  It was like hitting the apex of the show's mysteries and now the pieces are going to start coming together.
