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.

When Richard comes to visit John, he is playing backgammon. This is the same game that John taught Walt to play and is shown randomly throughout the series. When Locke first teaches Walt to play the game, he explains that it is a game of "dark and light, good and evil." This is another reference to what happens with the constant struggles on the island between the Others, the 815 survivors, and the people on the ship. 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

You're here because you can see the cabin, and that makes you special.
