  • The new Locke and the old Locke in the parallel time lines. Old Locke in LA, c.2004 is great Lost, wry humour, bittersweet, meetings with familar faces, intriguing storyline developing.

    Meanwhile on the island the new Locke gets a despondent but literary Sawyer to tag along, and some questions are answered, or not. A pre-teen boy appears, a new Other/superbeing, Aaron? Cliffside ladder sequence was nicely done, an actual stunt. The names on the roof of the cave (no Austin?), possibly new Locke is BS-ing on the 3 choices but an island upheaval is coming. Back to LA, how the heck does an affable Ben Linus end up teaching European History in high school? Oh and that Volkswagen punch buggy commercial was pretty good too. The numbers are still a mystery, maybe the island football team uniform numbers.
