Four-Toes Beach: Richard spots the temple fireworks in the blue sky, before anyone else. While they're all looking up at the sky in wonder, Faux-Locke exits the statue base. Ilana and her remaining goons cock their guns, but Richard screams at them not to shoot. As Faux-Locke passes Frank and Sun, Frank says, "I'm seeing it, but I'm still not believing." Faux-Locke greets Richard and says, "It's good to see you out of those chains." Some people have taken this to mean that Richard too was a slave on the Black Rock. I suppose that's possible, but right now, I think it's unlikely. Faux-Locke's whole big spiel to the Goonies was that they were free now that Jacob was dead. I think that's Faux-Locke's way of telling Richard that Jacob is dead and I think Jacob knows it. Jacob's eyes widen in horror. "You?" Faux-Locke says, "Me," and hits Richard in the throat, then knees him in the head. He falls on the sand, unconscious. Faux-Locke looks from Ben to Ilana, to Frank and Sun, and the whole group. He waggles his finger at them. "I'm very disappointed...in all of you." I break into laughter, but I think I'm just punch-drunk. Faux-Locke and Ben exchange an opaque look, and then Faux-Locke bends down and lifts up Richard. He hoists him over his right shoulder, and picks up his (F-L's) backpack with his left hand and starts off down the beach, passing right by John Locke's corpse. Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh dun.
