"He's not who we thought he was..."
« on: May 03, 2007, 12:08:42 PM »
Who did the Others think Locke was...or is? Jacob?
Is it someone who could take followers away from Ben?
Is Locke in fact that person they are waiting for?

And did Ben really start to heal because Locke showed up? Let's no forget that Locke wasn't alone! Could Kate, Sayid or Sawyer have something to do with his healing if it's not Locke?

Just like Dennis Green said last season:  "The Bears are who we thought they were!" 

John Locke is who we thought he was:  A Farmer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think Ben started to heal because he got back in touch with the Island by leaving the barracks.  I think Locke led him in the right direction, but Locke had nothing to do with speeding up his healing process.  Also, did you notice how fast Locke healed from the serious bite his father put on his hand?  I think they are returning to a place that is the center of the Island power...the "old place" they talked about...and so everyone is healing faster.

I think it was only a ruse when Ben said that.  It was a way of saying "look everyone, he's not a real man...he's a pussycat".  I don't think Ben meant that he (or they) thought Locke was a particular person such as Jacob or some kind of messiah.

Also, I agree that healing rate probably has to do with:

A. The injured person's proximity to a certain area of The Island
B. How much Wolverine blood the injured person has.

In other words, people who are in touch with The Island or are "good ones" or whatever are more likely to receive the benefits.
