Storyline

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.

Terry O'Quinn: Award Winning Performance
27 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

From the beginning of the fifth season, and due to the many strands of the story, the viewers didn't get a chance to watch a one-character-show focusing, which used to be in the previous seasons. In this episode the viewers will get the chance, and Terry O'Quinn will get the chance to shine...

Terry O'Quinn was relaxed, confident, and he didn't try to rush his scenes with a plain performance with no feelings like others in the series do. He got a chance to have a whole episode for only John Locke, and he didn't waste it. The acting came powerful, natural and touching...

The episode's script has many memorable lines, and its development was smooth and smart...
