Locke, Ben and Hurley trek into the jungle looking for the cabin housing the mysterious Jacob. More of Locke's past is shown about his birth, and childhood of meeting people who will change his life. Offshore, tensions aboard the freighter reach new heights as Frank Lapidus returns from the island with the murderous Keamy and his hit squad where they try to force Michael to repair the ship's damaged engine, and continue to keep Sayid and Desmond in check, leading to Captain Gault to help Sayid escape on a raft back to the island to warn the rest of the castaways.

Did You Know?


When the young John is looking at the items on the table, he chooses the bottle of sand (possibly from the island?) as well as the compass. We later find out that this is the same compass that Richard himself gives to Locke in the 50's during Season 5. See more »


When Sayid leaves the Kahana in the zodiac, the freighter's name is neatly painted on the port side of the bow; in earlier episodes, however, that name looks completely different - dirty and weathered. See more »

John Locke: No. I don't believe in miracles.

25 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode does an excellent job of enriching the mythology of Lost. The resonance and depth of the show's universe is attaining a level akin to that of Star Wars in the manner that it introduces a character in season 1 and in season 4 manages to elaborate on that character in a manner wholly effective and anything, but trite. I definitely don't recommend this episode to newcomer's of the show, but to the devoted fan, very few episodes are as rewarding and excellent as this. The beauty of this episode lies in the fact that the viewer has been following the series consistently and is rewarded with such beautiful and dramatic exposition. The episode deals with John Locke and this episode further establishes him as one of the strongest and greatest television characters.
