Locke has become the person he hates most...
« on: May 04, 2007, 05:09:39 PM »
... his father. All in the name of becoming the person he always wished he could be.

Locke conned, exploited, and used James for his own personal gain in a similar fashion as Cooper/Sawyer/etc played Locke in the past.

I'm not really sure as to what the repercussions of this are, if any, but wanted to make note of the seemingly 'becoming the person you hate most' theme that seemed to occur and it's relation to Locke starting fresh and becoming what he wished he could have been.

Unless he starts stealing kidneys and murdering the losties, then I wouldn't worry about it.  Locke has been doing that sort of thing since the show began.

Locke's real loyalty has always been to the Island.  So I guess nothing he does should come as a big surprise.  I think in a twisted way, he also knows how torn up Sawyer has been about his parent's deaths and after reading his dad was involved, he would some how give Sawyer what he's wanted.

I don't think that Locke has become who he hates the most. I also am not sure that he hates his father. He couldn't kill Cooper.

Mikhail wasn't his father. Could you kill your father, even if he conned a kidney out of you? I don't think I could.

Maybe it was an act of kindness towards Sawyer by giving him closure to a 30 yr old issue.  Sawyer can become the leader now, he no longers needs to be the conman.

I like that idea Alwayslost. Maybe John was giving Sawyer closure.

I'm still leaning towards John being a basically GOOD person who simply is not a killer and needed someone else to do it for him, but I'm just leaning mind you.... as soon as the Scotch wears off I'll be upright again  ::)

I agree that he needed someone else to do it as well.  But reading Sawyers file and seeing who Cooper was to Sawyer allowed him to offer Sawyer closure.  Yeah, that's it ;)

I'm not sure his intent was to kill Mikhail but call his bluff. In the end he didn't kill Mikhail so the point is moot I suppose.

I like Locke, but I think he was being selfish again here. He wanted to be w/ the Others, but he couldnt do what they asked, so he saw someone that would.

Don't do me any acts of kindness like this please. Get me into a situation where I have to kill a man, no thanks. With friends like that.
