In the aftermath of Alija Flight 316 crashing on the island, John Locke inexplicably appears, back from the dead, and tries to bring the survivors together, two of whom include the shady Ilana (who was with Sayid on the flight) as well as a fellow man, named Caesar, who try to make sense of what is going on. Locke flashes back to the time months earlier when he moved the island and was transported to the deserts of North Africa, and was found by Charles Widmore who asked Locke to convince the Oceanic 6 to return to the island.

Did You Know?
This was to be the eleventh episode of the season. It was aired earlier to game the sweeps ratings with stronger episodes. (See Goofs.) See more
Ilana tells John Locke, "There used to be three [boats], but the pilot [Frank Lapidus] and some woman [Sun Kwon] took one." This doesn't happen until Lost: Namaste
(2009). Further, John Locke spots Ben Linus recovered and walking on the beach, identifying him to Caesar as, "the man who killed me," yet Ben doesn't awaken from being hit by Sun until Lost: Whatever Happened, Happened
(2009) whereupon awakening the first thing he sees is John Locke alive again for the first time. As these scenes were set in the present and not as flashbacks, flash-forwards, or subjective past-as-present, this can only mean that Lost: The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham
(2009) was aired out of order and should have aired just before Lost: Dead Is Dead
(2009). See more
And how do we know he isn't one of the ones who disappeared?
How do you know?
Because he wasn't on the plane.
