1.04 "Walkabout" - ABC.com - Official LOST wikiSynopsis: The survivors continue to get acquainted with their surroundings. Locke and Michael go deep into the island to hunt for food, while Kate and Sayid continue to try to find the source of the strange French transmission. Kate damages the transceiver when she sees Locke in the jungle and tries unsuccessfully to warn him that the monster is about to attack. Locke manages to escape the clutches of the monster and bring food back to camp. Also the bodies from inside the plane need to be disposed of and Jack can only think of one way of doing so.

Flashback: It's all about Locke in this episode's flashback. In his life before the island, Locke was a meek box company office worker who had a dream of trekking across Australia. But after arriving in Australia, the tour group leader refuses to let him participate because he is wheelchair bound.

However, after regaining the use of his legs, Locke quickly gains confidence and organizes a hunting party with Kate and Michael. Michael is injured by boar attack and Kate takes him back to camp while Locke continues forth where he sees the monster, the smoke. (This is an assumption. You don't see what he sees.) Locke returns to camp with a dead boar.

OMG Moment:
  • Locke's flashback reveals that the island has had an odd effect on him -- Locke was confined to a wheelchair before the crash, but he can miraculously walk on this strange island.
  • Although you don't see what Locke sees, during his solo hunt, it appears he is confronted by the Monster/Smoke.
  • Jack sees his dead Father in the jungle, standing there looking at him.

Questions and clues: How on earth can Locke walk on the island? What did the monster do to him?
