Locke killed his dad, or more correctly, he arranged for Sawyer to kill his dad. James Ford, that is, since both he and dad use that name as an alias. And now that Locke has completed his task, he’s off to see the wizard. Will he find out who the man behind the curtain is? I think we have to assume that the writers are referring to Jacob (or possibly Charles Widmore?). This should be a bang-up episode, as all indications point to the backstory being about…
Ben, aka Henry Gale (yet another Wizard of Oz reference).
From the preview on Lostpedia for this episode:
The Man Behind the Curtain Ben begrudgingly begins to introduce Locke to the secrets of the island, beginning with the mysterious Jacob. Meanwhile, Juliet’s secret goes public.

Here are some interesting external links:
The Lost Report: A very well written summary of the most current episode often containing interesting insights. I don’t think you’ll find spoilers.
The Tail Section: Excellent site for still frame photos of key scenes, along with some good analysis. But… beware of spoilers!
Sledgeweb’s Lost… Stuff: Pretty good site, but again beware of spoilers. I use it mainly for the Timeline section, which is an incredibly detailed breakdown of “how long since…?” for almost anything you can think of (pre- and post-plane crash).
Door Map from Episode 2.17. A nicely cleaned up version of the diagram Locke saw while pinned under the lockdown doors. No spoilers.
Lostpedia: The wikipedia of Lost information. Quite a comprehensive site, but beware of spoilers!
ThEmIsFiTiShErE: The Misfit offers his whacky commentary on “Lost”. Is he a nut-case or a clever insider? Careful, though, possible spoilers.
