Walt goes to tell Locke that it wasn’t him who poisoned Michael. As Locke is reassuring Walt, he grabs Walt’s arm and Walt freaks out a bit and pulls away. He says “don’t open it, don’t open it Mr Locke, don’t open that thing”. But Walt doesn’t even know about the hatch.
Surprisingly when Locke first shows the hatch to Jack, Jack’s response is “how do we open it?”. It’s not everyday that Locke and Jack agree on something like that.
If only Sayid had gotten on the original flight that CIA had offered him, then he wouldn’t have been on Flight 815, his plane would never have crashed and he would have probably been reunited with Nadia.
When Sayid asks Locke to take him to the plane you can sense that he could very well intended to kill him, but when they get to the plane you can tell that Sayid starts to believe Locke’s story. Then Locke’s goes and springs the revelation that it was he who ‘attacked’ Sayid while he was trying to triangulate the distress signal, and all that trust goes flying out the window.
The island population grows, the island population shrinks. Boone’s death was the first of the major characters to be killed off, or if you’re to believe Jack, to be murdered. However we know that although Locke asked Boone to investigate the plane, it wasn’t his fault that it fell and crushed him. Also on the ‘murdered’ point, its interesting then that Boone’s step sister Shannon died after being “accidentally” shot by Ana-Lucia, again maybe not murder but Ana-Lucia was aiming to kill what ever she hit, she just thought she was shooting the “bad guys”. Ana-Lucia however was most definitely murder, and Michael didn’t mess around, promptly killing Libby, presumably because she witnessed the first one. It will be interesting how everyone reacts when Michael returns in Season 4.
Boone uses the radio found in the Nigerian plane, and gets a response from someone else claiming that they too are the survivors of Flight 815, however since the plane falls and as a result Boone dies, I don’t think he gets a chance to tell anyone what he heard. We find out in season 2 that it was the Tailies who responded and they cut short their transmission because they thought Boone was the Others trying to trick them.
Locke and Boone discover the Nigerian plane that we later find out contains the remains of Ekos brother Yemi, and little do they know that the directly below the plane is the hatch to the pearl station. At this point they don’t even know what the hatch they are attempting to open leads to, but if they had discovered the Pearl, they would have probably seen Desmond on the monitors in there.
Anyone else notice that Locke seems to have had a LOT of different jobs, I pretty sure that each time he has a flashback episode hes working in a different job. So far some of the jobs have been, his position at the box company, an at a toy store and as an house inspector.
When Hurley visits Leonard Sims to find out the origins of “the numbers”, Leonard tells him that he got them from a man call Sam Toomy, who’s in Australia. We then find out that Leonard and Sam were stationed together at a listening post in the Pacific when they picked up a transmission that was repeating the numbers over and over again and that it was about 16 years ago (presumably before Rousseau changed the transmission).
We find out that Hurley is “now the proud owner of a box company”, just so happens this is the same “box company” that Locke worked for.
