Lost: Exodus (2)

Claire: "No one is punishing us. There's no such thing as fate."The theme of this first hour was fate vs. reason. This episode's Most Obvious Symbolism was (were?) the skeletons of the slaves in the Black Rock, still in their chains, slaves to fate like the Lostaways. Locke certainly believes in fate. He's the high priest of the Island, and deeply invested in the supernatural. Hurley
