  • Great episode for the very fascinating John Locke.

    Having recently gotten into the show Lost because of Terry O'Quinn, who I knew from his work on the show Millennium, I quickly became fascinated with the character of John Locke. He has a connection to the island, and a very unique view about what the island is.

    This episode has Locke leading a hunt for wild boars, and shows his backstory through flashbacks. At first, I found his flashbacks to be very out of character for him, and was afraid about what they would do with the character. However, as the episode progressed, his story became much more interesting. The twist at the end of the episode was very well done, helped to bring his very different past and present together so that they made perfect sense, and made his character even more fascinating than he already was.

    This episode has very strong righting, and showed me why I had originally gotten into the show in the first place: Terry's great acting.
