* We return this week to flashbacks, and how. I’m guessing we go farther back with each flash.
* Young Locke will get a proposition from a high school chemistry teacher.
* Younger Locke will spend some time in a school locke-r.
* Youngest Locke may meet Richard Alpert.
Alpert is in next week’s episode too. Widmore’s freighter fiends, as one might guess, do not rescue the Oceanic Six. Desmond may come very close to becoming one of the Oceanic Seven. The finale will depict the arrival on the American mainland of the Oceanic Six, as well as the funeral of Christian Shephard. And we’ll learn more about why Jack is so hot to return to Dharma Island.
