Trivia

The woman that interviews Locke at the agency (before Rose), is the same woman that pretends to be a psychic in Lost: Tricia Tanaka Is Dead (2007), the woman that Hurley's father paid to convince him not to go to Australia. See more »

Goofs

John Locke is shown in his bathroom carrying the business card Jack gave him. From the angle that shows him holding the card, you can see a different, yellow-ish logo on the left and the name and title on the right with no red banner on top. The real card Jack gave him is shown in the close-up with the red banner on top and his name and title centered on the card. See more »

Quotes

Rose Nadler: I have cancer. Terminal cancer.
John Locke: I'm sorry...
Rose Nadler: When the doctors first told me, I had a hard time accepting it. But eventually... I got past the denial part. And I got back to living whatever life I've got left.

In the island, John Locke tries to convince Richard to follow him. Meanwhile Ilana asks Ben what happened to Jacob and to her friends and Ben tells that Locke turned into the smoke monster and killed all of them and burnt Jacob; Ilana takes his ashes. Locke meets Sawyer and he asks who he is since John was a frightened guy. Sawyer follows Locke and they see a boy in the woods. When Locke chases the kid, Richard warns Sawyer about Locke. But Sawyer follows him to a cave in a cliff by the sea and Locke shows the reason why they are in the island. Ilana summons Sun, Frank and Ben to go with her to the temple and they bury John Locke first.

In the parallel reality, John Locke lies about a conference in Sidney that he missed and is fired by his chief, Randy. When he is leaving the company, he meets Hugo, who owns the company and offers him to call an employment agency that also belongs to him to find a new position. John has an interview with the supervisor of the agency, Rose, and asks her a position in a construction site. John tells to Helen that he was fired and he begins to work as a substitute teacher in a school where Ben Linus is the European History teacher.

"The Substitute" is an episode about John Locke that shows a new mystery, with a cave with the name of Jack, Kate, Hurley, Kwon, Sayid, Sawyer and Locke associated to numbers, but no explanation about what has happened to the Oceanic Flight 815 and a boring parallel life of Locke. Will the writers be able to come to an ending of "Lost"? I hope so. My vote is six.
