617 – The End – Locke


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.

    Terry O’Quinn is just awesome.

    The way he can seem like the kindest, friendliest guy you could ever meet in one scene, and still play the most menacingly creepy guy you’d never want to meet in another … it’s just joyous to behold.

    I wish they could give three or four Emmys to this show, for acting alone!

      I completely agree. He played his double role with such finesse, that when he was Locke, we believed he was Locke, and when he was MIB, we believed that too without any bleeding in of the other role.
      He’s the only character, everyone, fans, even writers refer to by last name.

    I can’t make up my mind about Locke.
    I think he was still kind of a jerk after he flashed so I don’t really think he should have ‘moved on’.
    He was mean to Jack “you don’t have a son!” and not very gracious to Ben, which would imply he’s not really over it (not that I don’t understand that!).
    He still seemed impulsive and needing to force people to see how ‘right’ he was. So…I don’t get at all how he was able to move on.

    But I’m glad for him.
    Maybe all he needed to move through was forgiving his father and himself (since clearly he blamed himself for trusting his Dad — as evidenced by how in the Purgatory/Dream timeline he was the cause of his paralyzation and his Dad’s catatonic state — pretty karmic that!) in order to move on.

    I don’t know.

    I agree that it was the toe wiggle — which is just what he flashed to — I think the Flashes 1st scenes are indicative of their trigger!
