  • The episode deals with John Locke. He has issues that need to be resolved with his father, but he needs Sawyer to take care of business for him. The subplot involves the Losties trying to figure out what to do with a new survivor on the island.

    This episode was awesome and in my opinion the best one of the season so far. The producers went back to the style that made the show such a hit.
    The central story involves Locke. Ben tells him that he is a great man, but that he must first take care of his father. When Locke realizes he can't do this, another Other, Richard, shows him that another Lostie might help him. With this storyline, another island mystery is resolved.
    The subplot involves the Losties. When a new survivor lands on the island, several members of the beach tribe don't know what to do or who to trust. What made this plot interesting is that no one knows who to trust, and the ones they thought they could trust prove untrustworthy.
