I thought it was good, especially that the writers fessed up to the Smokie pretty much being the source of all of the Islands hallucinations (Christian Shepard, Kate Horse, Walt etc. etc. )
What I wasn't so keen on was the bit where it was implied that Locke has been trying to keep everyone on the island all along. Sure Locke is fascinated with the Island, but aside from the submarine gig (which is still questionable), he hasn't otherwise demonstrated a desire to sabotage the rest of the losties rescue attempts.
Anyhows 9/10 for having explained a everything in a pretty straight forward manner. I was expecting a clip show much like we've had before, so it made for a refreshing change to have the writers just talking it through like that. I'd of given it a 10, but the lack of Banjo playing, no pants action and uncontrollable laughter that is a staple of the pod casts kind of dipped it a bit.
Great supplement to Lost. Right now, any answers that we can get are good answers. I like that I am now sure in knowing stuff like how Smokey reads thoughts, manifests stuff. And how Ben really was pissed that Locke could hear Jacob. This made things a little more clear for me.

He attacked Sayid in the first Season while Sayid was trying to get a signal with the help of Shannon/Boone and Sawyer/Kate. Locke obviously doesn't want people to leave.
Good Epidsode. I was very happy I watched it. There were no new "answers" but the episode did a good job of putting everything into a single story. The choice of scenes were good as well, they didn't concentrate on any one thing too much.
