John Locke's dead body is in the crate, Richard reveals 'What lies in the shadow of the statue'

At the remains of the four-toed statue, Richard offers Sun some water and she asks him if he has any alcohol. Richard says "No, but I sure wish I did."

At that moment, Ilana, Bram, Frank and the others come walking towards the statue with the crate. The others all pull weapons on them and Ilana tells them it's okay and puts her gun down. Ilana then asks "Which one of you is Ricardos?" Richard steps forward and says "It's Richard actually."

Ilana asks him the big question, "What lies in the shadow of the statue?" Richard answers in Latin "Ille qui nos omnes servabit" which translates to "He who will protect/save us all." Ilana and Bram look incredibly happy to hear the right answer.

Ilana tells Richard she has something he needs to see and tells her people to open up the crate. The others steady their guns again, but Richcard tells them it's okay. The crate is flipped over and it is revealed that the body of John Locke is inside. Richard asks where they found him and Ilana says that Locke was in the cargo hold of the plane in a coffin.

Sun then asks the million dollar question. She says "I don't understand. If this is Locke... who's in there?" Ilana and Richard both looked very, very panicked.

So in this scene we come to learn why Locke has not seemed very Locke-like since his faux ressurection? The question is, who is using Locke's form? There is also still a big question mark over Ilana. Who is she and how does she know Richard as Ricardos?

It's worth noting that this is the second season finale in a row where Locke's dead boby has been revealed inside a box. I don't think we'll be seeing it in the series finale though.
