Conned by the best…

Read no further unless you want a major LOST spoiler...  Well, if I'm right...
I just realized... John Locke's fsather is the con man who is responsible for Sawyer's parents deaths.

Everyone in the show is interconnected. They constantly have little things, like Shannon's dad was the guy who died when Jack saved the girl in the hospital...

When we first saw John Locke's dad, we just knew him as a rich guy in a big house.
So, I'm 15 minutes into episode 17 of season two, and Locke's dad is on the run from two guys who want to kill him over a $700k con. Back when Locke used to stake out his dad's place, the guy got into the car and talked to him and said "you think you were the first guy to ever get conned?'. At the time I just thought he was being a dick, now I realize he is a professional con man. He's a con man who doesn't care at all about people. Just the kind of guy to have been thge one to rip off sawyer's parents.

I bet a sushi dinner that Locke's dad turns out to be the real Sawyer.

  1. When Anna Lucia drives Jack’s dad to the house where he shouts at the woman that he wants to see his daughter, before going to the bar where he talks to Sawyer about being proud of his son – I can’t help but wonder whether that daughter is Claire, who was pregnant at the time…

  2. Nan, Mel and I (and I think Dita was there) all speculated the same thing. We did a Tivo rewind, and we really couldn’t tell. I should download one of the HDTV versions off of BitTorrent and see if we can get a better look at her face.

    I really need to get my latest LOST thoughts up… I’ve just had so much going on, and going wrong, in the past couple of weeks that I’ve only sketched notes and not flushed them out.
