Ryan Ozawa from HawaiiBlog has broken a huge exclusive on 4.11, the centricity of the episode! It appears that the young man is (patting self on back) John Locke. That’s right, we will be seeing a flash back into John Locke’s child hood. What could that possibly have to do with anything going on in the present? Who knows! Maybe it is simply a return to the thematic spread of previous flash backs. So far, most of the flashes have been connected in some really concrete way, but Juliet’s was, arguably, a little thematic, and the confirmed dead flashes were mostly enigmatic.
