Emily Annabeth Locke is the biological mother of John Locke. She was born on October 15, 1940.




As a teenager

On May 30th 1956, at the age of fifteen, Emily was hit by a car on her way to visit the man she was dating, whom her mother disapproved of because he was "twice her age". While rushing to the ER, she told a nurse that she was six months pregnant. She soon gave birth to her baby prematurely, whom she adamantly named John. The infant had to be kept in isolation for the sake of his health.

After "miraculously" regaining his health, the nurse allowed Emily to hold him for the first time. Emily exclaimed, "I can't do this!" and ran out of the room. As Emily's mother asked the nurse about the possibility of adoption, the nurse noticed a man looking through the window. She asked Mrs. Locke who he was, to which Mrs. Locke claimed she didn't know. The man was Richard Alpert. ("Cabin Fever")

Reunion with Locke

About ten years prior to the crash of Flight 815, Anthony Cooper used Emily as part of a con to get Locke to donate his kidney to him, after his own kidney had failed. During the ploy, she told her son that he was very special, and that he had no father because he was "immaculately conceived" (a common misuse of the term). Emily would later reveal Cooper's betrayal, apologizing and telling Locke that she participated in the con for money. ("Deus Ex Machina")

Emily was admitted several times to the Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute for a treatable type of schizophrenia. She became addicted to drugs; however, it is unknown if the addiction was related to her treatment. ("Deus Ex Machina")

Additional casting

Young Emily Locke ("Cabin Fever")

Teenage Emily was portrayed by Holland Roden in "Cabin Fever". The casting call referred to the part as Teenage girl. Plays as 16, Caucasian, red hair (or willing to dye hair red). Emotional, prone to dramatic gestures, passionately in love and fights with her Mom about it. Nice Co-star. [1]

Admission forms

Emily Annabeth Locke's admissions file at Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute ("Deus Ex Machina")

From the SRMI admissions forms shown in "Deus Ex Machina", the following facts are revealed about Emily Locke:

  • She selected "D" (for "Divorced") for "Marital Status".
  • She has an aunt named Bea Jones.
  • She has "manic disorder".
  • She lived at 2448 Greenwood Avenue in Los Angeles as of 1990.
  • Her prescriptions are at Skadden's Pharmacy, the same fictional Los Angeles pharmacy where Jack got his clonazepam prescription in "Something Nice Back Home".


  • Emily is of Latin origin, and its meaning is "industrious, striving".
  • Emily is also the name of Ben's mother, who gave birth prematurely.
  • The casting call and ABC episode recap describe Emily Locke as 16 years old. However, the Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute admission form in "Deus Ex Machina" shows a birth date of October 15, 1940, making her 15 years old at the time of John's birth (May 30, 1956).
