We are only weeks away from the grand finale of LOST. This week’s episode, titled, “The Candidate,” seems to be a Jack and Locke centric episode. By now, Locke should be recalling island memories. If so, does that mean he knows his eventual fate? Does he know the extent of his toolishness to MIB? What does he think of Ben now? Does he know anything about events after his return on flight 316. Sure, MIB stole his body, but that doesn’t mean Locke can’t share some memories, can it?
Does the candidate refer to Jack? Does it refer to Locke and being the candidate for back surgery (Jack did think he was a candidate for surgery). Knowing LOST, it refers to both, and possibly it refers to something else.
