Locke has the same car as Ted Bundy: The VW bug – speaking of a serial killers, on the Lost Island. Locke isn’t the son of God, but the son of Hades, and his inheritance is the Netherworld (quite literally with the Man in Black being stuck in his own pocket dimension: the Island).
Both his parents betray Locke. His mom was a typical, gold digging, ’70s hippie. His mom didn’t even want to acknowledge the pregnancy. Locke’s parents deserved each other. Poor Locke.
When I built my whole underground complex, in Minecraft, there was a huge main entrance and two small “hatches.” I built my fortress in 2013, before I first saw Lost, in 2014. Locke and Boone could have looked for another opening.
Boone’s death wasn’t Locke’s fault, per se, but running away and lying (like his con man dad would have done) didn’t do his guilty image any favors. Faith, the opiate of the masses, can fail. Makes sense that priests and heroin would be on the same plane.
Locke, runs away, after bringing Boone to the camp. His dad abandons him, after taking away his kidney. Like father, like son. Cooper tricks Locke. Locke tricks Boone. The sin repeats. Locke was supposedly immaculately conceived. The Virgin Mary statues on the plane were hollowed out, to smuggle heroin. Faith unrewarded – or at least defeated, temporarily, by reason. Clothes decaying would take only a few years, in a jungle.
Boone’s whole horror movie reveal, about the maid, in his childhood, was pretty much a huge bit of foreshadowing. It was a sideways prophecy, (like a flash sideways), that Boone wouldn’t survive the episode. Lost Island group telepathy. Hive mind. Boone survived one plane crash, just to die, in another. Boone was the true Icarus, for the surviving Locke, who is Daedalus.
Abandoned by Heaven and Hell – but not by the Island. At the last moment, a light comes on in the Hatch. Desmond has been down there, in the Hatch time capsule, for decades. He has learned to ignore whatever is up there, on the Surface. The light was both happenstance, and fate. Desmond turned on the light, and the Man in the Black sent Locke a sign.
A light comes on in the Hatch. It was big, when I saw it, half a decade ago. Like finding out we’re not the only intelligent life, in the universe – whether that life is in outer space, or in some warped, quantum dimension / timeline continuity.
Locke regaining his power to walk, on the island, is, in part, due to his faith. When his faith wavers, he suddenly can’t walk anymore, or feel his lower limbs and feet. Psychosomatic v. The Island giveth and the Island taketh away.
