Storyline

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 Anonymous

Trivia

During John's flashback where Eddie is being introduced at the dinner table, one of John's friends comments on Eddie's 'Geronimo Jackson' T-shirt. 'Geronimo Jackson' was one of the albums found by Hurley when the survivors first gained access to the hatch in Season 2. See more »

Goofs

In the flashback, when Locke is driving his truck into the camp, there is a brief close-up of the cab in which there is no one in the passenger seat; Eddie is not there. See more »

Quotes

New Mysteries in the Island in a Disappointing Episode
19 October 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Locke wakes up mute after the implosion of the hatch, recovers his faith on the island and builds a sweat tent for self meditation. He has a vision of Boone guiding him through the airport before the check in of the passengers of flight 815. He goes with Charlie to rescue Mr. Eko from a polar bear in its cave, and meets with Hurley returning to the survivors' camp, who tells what happened with Jack, Kate and Sawyer. Meanwhile, Locke recalls his relationship with his new acquaintance Eddie in a community where he lived.

"Further Instructions" is the most disappointing episode of "Lost" that I recall. I agree that it is a hook for new mysteries in the island, but "Further Instructions" is below the average of the other episodes. I had a great expectation with the character Paulo, played by the Brazilian actor Rodrigo Santoro, but his participation in this episode is very short. There is a non-original plot summary written in IMDb that can be found in the most different sites in Internet and the scene described ("Claire is shocked to find Nikki and Paulo in Jack's tent") was not shown in the episode. I believe there are IMDb users using the same stuff as Locke and having visions about "Lost", since there are inclusive votes in the next episodes that have not been broadcast yet. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Note: On 5 April 2013, I saw this episode again on DVD.
