Locke's ability to walkEdit
- In the episode Because You Left, Locke is shot in the leg while trying to climb up to the drug smuggler's plane right after seeing it crash. This happens while the Island is skipping through time. I think that for the short period of time while Locke had the bullet in his leg, the pain somehow connected with him going to the plane for the first time.
- The open question on the episode's page does not question whether it was the island who took away his ability or not, but just why it did. That's why I think the answer to that question is so obvious that I would actually suggest the question to be removed, because it is resolved at the end of the episode when the plane falls, or when it is revealed that Boone died. "The island" wanted Locke to find the plane, to open the hatch etc., that's what it's all about, leading Locke to his "destiny". But, as the plane would fall and whoever was in it die, Locke could not be allowed to climb up there. If he was able to, he surely would have climbed up there, and it would have been Locke that died, and he never would have fulfilled whatever was in store for him. Anamon 23:13, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
