Locke, Bad Daddies, And The Magic Box

If you didn’t catch Lost last night, you really need to take a trip over to and check it out. If I haven’t said it enough, let me reiterate that this season is SO much better than last year. It’s just leaps and bounds ahead.

So where to begin? There’s not a jury in the world that would convict John Locke for killing his dad. After stealing his kidney, dad pops up in John’s life again. It seems dad’s going to get hitched, and his new son-in-law is not too keen on the new guy in mom’s life. He seeks John out to check up on Dad’s background.

Locke confronts dad, tells him the kid is checking up, and instructs him to break off the relationship. Dad, great guy that he is, kills the son and throws Locke out an eighth story window. Locke’s confinement to the wheelchair is explained.

Back on the island, Kate and Sayid get caught trying to rescue Jack. The good doctor tells Kate he was on his way off the island and would send back help. Before he can pack his bags on the submarine, however, along comes Locke to detonate the submersible.

Henry Gale/Ben had told Locke of a great magic box on the island that would give you whatever you wish for. As a way to say thank you, he shows Locke what it belched up when he opened it. They lead Locke to a cell, open the door, and… TA-DA!!! There’s dad, taped to a chair and looking scared.

Now what would you do if you’re Locke? Having given up a kidney for this guy, and then getting tossed off a building for my trouble, I know for a fact I’d charge the chair, rip his still beating heart from his chest and hold it in front of his face so he could see how black it is before he dies.

But that’s just me…

I’m curious to see where they’re going with this storyline…
