Day 6: Favourite scene
"For a brief time I served in a small parish in England. Every Sunday after mass I would see a young boy waiting in the back of the church. Then one day the boy confessed to me that he had beaten his dog to death with a shovel. He said the dog had bitten his baby sister on the cheek and he needed to protect her. And he wanted to know whether he would go to Hell for this. I told him that God would understand. That he would be forgiven as long as he was sorry. But the boy did not care about forgiveness. He was only afraid that if he did go to Hell, that dog would be there w a i t i n g f o r h i m.”
There were a couple of great scenes like this with Eko where he would talk to someone seemingly knowing what had happened or who they were. The scene with him and Ben in the hatch is another one. They always reminded me of how Locke would help people in season one somehow knowing what they wanted or needed. It’s interesting that Locke was usually bringing out the good in someone whereas in this scene Eko is speaking directly to Michael’s guilt. Locke and Eko were always very well juxtaposed.
