Lost, Season 6, Episode 4

"The Substitute"

Locke goes in search of help to further his cause.

Oh, thanks, ABC.

What the hell is his cause, at this point? And he's not Locke now anyway; Locke's dead!

Entertainment Weekly preview of tonight's episode. Link to the post-episode post will be there, I imagine here.

O-o-kay, so someone (Jacob, as dead Locke says? Why should we trust anything he says?) has been writing names on the interior walls of a cave (anyone else think of Lascaux?), and some of the names correspond to the names of the original plane-crash Losties (why was Kate's name not there?), and there are numbers assigned to each name. That moves the story forward a little, I guess.

But. Then we have the mysterious blond boy who sounds pretty authoritative telling dead Locke about the "rules," whatever they may be. That sends us off on yet another track. The writers are messing with us.

I loved Frank's "Weirdest damn funeral I've ever been to" line; it was right up there with Miles's "We'll be in the food court" last week.
