The fates of Locke, Eko and Desmond are revealed after the implosion of the hatch, while Hurley returns to the beach camp to tell the tale of what happened when he, Jack, Kate and Sawyer encountered "The Others". A mute Locke makes a sweat-lodge and talks to the spirit of Boone who persuades him to rescue Mr. Eko from a polar bear cave with Charlie's help. Desmond also survived the implosion, but not quite the same. More of Locke's background is revealed how his life took a turn when he, living with a group of "farmers" picked up a lonely youth who was not who he appeared to be. Meanwhile, Claire is shocked to find fellow survivors, Nikki and Paulo, in Jack's tent. Written by

While John is mute and trying to talk to Charlie, John points at the trees. Charlie replies by saying, "Yeah. Trees. I've heard they're wonderful conversationalists." I believe this to be a reference to his role as Merry in Lord of the Rings where he comes in contact with a talking tree named TreeBeard. See more
