  • A Locke-centric episode.

    By Writer2000, Sep 16, 2008

  • With superb character development for Locke and Ben and guest appearances from Lance Reddick, Nestor Carbonell and Doug Hutchinson, Cabin Fever is a fine example of why Locke's episodes always deliver to the fans. Major spoilers.

    • Hurley: Who builds a cabin in the middle of the jungle anyway?
      Locke: That's a good question.
      Hurley: So? How about answering it?
      Locke: I don't know.

    • Horace: I'm not making any sense, am I? Locke: No. Horace: That's probably because I've been dead for twelve years.

    • Ben: He actually thinks staying was his idea. Not bad, John. Not bad at all. Locke: I'm not you. Ben: You're certainly not.

    • Locke: I forced you to come with us at gunpoint, and I'm sorry, Hugo, but I was led to believe that we needed you to find this place. Hurley: Oh, I get it. Now you got your magic map, you don't--you don't need me anymore. Locke: I'm offering you a chance to leave. I don't want to put you in harm's way against your will. Hurley: And you think walking through the jungle at night by myself is gonna be any safer? Locke: I'm not sure it is.

    • Sayid: Michael--is he dead? Gault: No, but not for lack of bloody trying, which is precisely why you two need to be hiding before Keamy comes back on this deck. Sayid: Hiding is pointless. Give us your Zodiac raft so we can start ferrying people back here from the beach. The only way to save our lives is to get our people off that Island.

    • The Myth Of Sisyphus Horace is seen cutting down a tree, only to have that tree reappear uncut, which he then cuts down again in a seemingly repetitive loop. This is an apparent reference to the myth of Sisyphus, whom the gods punish by forcing him to push a boulder up a hill, only to have the boulder roll back down for him to push again in a eternally repeating loop.

    • Cabin Fever: Is a term used for a claustrophobic reaction that takes place when a party is isolated and/or shut in, alone or together, for an extended period.

    • The X-Men: Richard Alpert's line "I'm Richard, John. I run a school for kids who are... extremely special, and I have reason to believe that you might be one them." is almost word for word what Charles Xavier (Professor X) says when recruiting young mutants.

    • The Bible: As the nurses wheel out Emily's premature baby, she yells out, "His name is John!", just as in Luke 1:63, when Zechariah and Elizabeth gave birth to John the Baptist.
