Storyline

While alone in the hatch with Henry Gale, all the openings shutdown and John Locke becomes trapped in a room with him. He releases Henry to help him to open the hydraulic door, and he supports it with a tool box. When John tries to passes below the door, the box collapses and his legs are secured by the guillotine door. Locke recalls his former relationship with Helen and how his estranged con-artist father Anthony Cooper, returned to ask Locke for a favor. In the mist of all this, Henry tries to reach the computer through the ventilation duct. Meanwhile, Jack faces off against Sawyer in a card game on the beach over some food supplies. Also, Ana Lucia, Sayid and Charlie find the truth about Henry in the jungle and return to the camp. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Open clues behind closed doors
30 March 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This very interesting Locke-centered episode starts off by showing snapshots of the past that has happened till now. Jack ends up on the beach playing a hand of poker with Sawyer while Locke is left alone in the hatch with the prisoner Henry Gayle. We see some more images of Locke's past involving his father and Helen, his lady friend. We also realize that Locke had proposed to Helen at one point.

Back on the beach the hatch seems to take a life of its own when large metal doors come crashing down locking Locke and Henry inside it. As the two men struggle to get help Locke ends up getting his foot stuck under one of those Herculean metal doors. Henry on the other hand is given the task of getting the code into the computer since the alarm starts sounding and Locke is no position to move. How he gets into the computer room and enters the code is a mystery.

The episode ends with Sayid, Charlie and Ana Luisa returning from the jungle where they find the parachute and the grave but also a little more than what Henry had expected.

An excellent edge of the seat thriller of an episode of LOST this one.
