A revisit to season 2

A few things:

1. This season was completely about John Locke and Eko.

2. Every time Locke seems to fall off the chosen path, the island messes with his legs.

3. John was meant to find the Swan Station, but never to be the button-pusher.

4. It was important for John to find the Pearl Station in order for him to realize he was never meant to be the button-pusher, but he completely overreacted and lost his faith (momentarily).

5. In trying to save Locke during the second lockdown with Desmond inside the Swan, Eko WHIPS IN HIS JESUS STICK, which just barely makes it inside (like Indy grabbing his hat in Temple of Doom) when the doors come down. Signficant.

6. Yemi and Ana Lucia both tell Eko in a dream how to get John to find the Pearl Station. Libby and Desmond met before and she gives him her boat.

7. When Desmond resets the island with the key underneath the Swan Station, those Portuguese dudes in the arctic see the flashing on their computer and call Penny Widmore, saying, "I think we may have found IT." She's looking for the island? Did the old man TELL her about it? Or did she used to live there too?
