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?
Although John Locke (Terry O'Quinn
) says he is not like Ben (Michael Emerson
), they have more in common than he knows. Both their biological mothers are called Emily. Both men survived despite being born very premature, had no relationship with their natural mother and a problematic one with their fathers. They both recovered on the island from a condition that crippled them (albeit Ben just temporarily). And both of them end up being chosen by the island to lead the inhabitants. See more

In the season 5 episode "Jughead", Locke reveals his birthday as May 30, 1956. "Everyday" was not recorded until May 1957 and wasn't released as a single until September 1957. See more

Why am I here, man?
You're here because you can see the cabin, and that makes you special.
