And I'm not just talking about Locke's dream.
Last night I had the strangest dreams after a LOST episode ever! Keamy was all over the place causing trouble, but he was also supposed to teach a calculus class that I was being forced to take, and I didn't do my homework, so I was in a panic about what he would do. Huh? Well, at least it wasn't like PeeWee's dream about a snake wearing a vest, heheh.
Among the obvious points about Locke's dream that were odd (i.e., a dead Horace chatting up a storm while making like Paul Bunyan) the dream seemed to be on a loop for some reason. Horace greeted and introduced himself to Locke twice. Was Horace repeating himself to make sure that Locke was paying attention and got the point of his nocturnal visitation? Locke does seem to need to get hit on the head more than once to understand the obvious at times. I was a little disappointed that "Mr.I-Want-Some-Answers" just replied with a sheepish, "Nope," when Horace asked him if he knew what he was talking about. And why would Horace or the D.I. have the map to Jacob's house anyway? That opens up a lot of questions about how much the D.I. knew about Jacob, how they knew it, and whether they tried to communicate with him at all. Perhaps the Purge happened before they got to make the attempt.
Horace saying "Godspeed" is interesting also, and not just because of his last name. Godspeed is an expression of wishing good fortune and prosperity on one's journey. As well as for wishing God to be with the person and to light their path along the way. It seems as if Horace (or who ever this dream visitor is) really wants Locke to take the mission he's being given to heart, and to go and do it successfully, without messing it up as John often does. We can only hope that Locke can follow the instructions that he receives this time, better than he has when other people have tried to "tell him what to do" for his own benefit. The stakes for the island and everyone on it are very high now and Locke needs to follow the right plan for a change. Or his ego may just blow up the whole island.
