Off the Island
Locke almost had to go through as much as Jack in order to flash. Way less, actually.
I’m not really sure if it was Jack or the fixed legs that caused Locke to flash. Locke could have flashed from numerous people, Jack, of course. But Boone, Ben or Charlie or even Eko or Desmond could have done it too. On the Island Locke had some sidekicks, but he never really connected with one person like everyone else. So I’m leaning towards the self-initiated flash.
-Locke didn’t really need to wear that ridiculous hat thing at the hospital. He looked like a fool.
-When Locke woke up in the other timeline I was pretty afraid that it was going to be “Locke”. That would have been the worst. Of course in retrospect it’s ridiculous. Those theories really scared me, the ones about people like “Locke” escaping through Locke’s body in the other world.
-When Locke was wiggling his toes I was thinking more about Sarah rather than Locke in Walkabout. Fortunately they had that flash right then.
-I hope this episode was good for all the ultra devoted Locke fans out there. It must have been good to have the real Locke back. Plus he got an apology for his murder. That must feel good.
