Why Is Locke Wet?













This has fueled endless speculation on the Interwebs. Why is John Locke who went inside the submarine with his backpack of C4 now wet? Where did he plant those charges? Did he press the "Submerge" button as Ben suggested before setting the charges? And where is the backpack? The axe? The mini-Jesus stick? And is it really the case that the submarine can no longer be used to leave the Island?

I've had a crackpot theory ever since seeing that ep.

Locke moved the sub, and swam back to the dock. There are a million holes in this theory (what did blow up?), but it's fun anyway.

I think that's a very plausible twist worthy of TPTB, PGT. :-)

I'm almost 100% certain that Locke merely blew up the dock and hid the sub.

PAA and Capcom,

Thanks for the encouragement!

He could have left his stuff behind before he got on board. Submerging the sub then 'sploding it makes no sense. Maybe he couldn't get into the sub, so he had to somehow attach the explosives to the outside. That might have given him reason to jump into the water

I think Locke hid the sub and blow up the dock. Either way the sub doesn't matter. Juliet was drugged so we really don't know how she got to the island. I am sure there is a different way to arrive or the sub is just one of five steps taken to get to the island.

Hey, that would be a pretty good twist. Because if Locke has a sub hidden away, that just opens up all kinds of possibilities for the next season.
