After tonight's episode, there are lots of theories to discuss indeed!
First of all, the dueling dieties is looking dead on right now. Christian, or as John refers to as "the island", is telling him to kill Jacob? Am I getting that right? He is not making this stuff up on his own, thats for sure. So, Jacob and Christian are using pawns, just like it says on the second post of this thread?
Or maybe John is just pulling Ben's leg. Ha! Yeah right.
Or maybe there really is no Jacob. Maybe Jacob stands for Just Another Concoction Of Bullshit.
And now I know why Miles is here. Hes here to talk to Dan. After that happens, he's got a red shirt on.
And its nice to know Richard Alpert is as much in the dark as the rest of this crazy show. And from last week, I also noticed he fears death. He might not get older, but he is nowhere near immortal.
And really the kicker is this.... its all going to boil down to one question.
What the hell is Smokey? Watching Smokey (as Alex) tell Ben to stop thinking about killing John again, and help him.
Okay. That's gotta be the boss talking, there. Reading minds, projecting dead people, reading dead people, and moving around the jungle in a black column of smoke that sounds like a machine and an alien all at the same time.
We gotta Smoke Monster out! I'm going to assume that Smokey is Christian. Its the same MO every time. Smokey conjures up a dead person who is still themselves, but doing its bidding.
Yemi = corpse disapears on the island = Eko relationship.
Christian = corpse disapears on the island = Jack relationship.
Alex = corpse still on the island = Ben relationship.
And one thing for sure. I do not remember a dead guy named Jacob yet. Is Jacob just a distraction? And Smokey is the TRUE Jacob? I don't see anyone else being the boss. Is Jacob ... lol
Jacob is Richards father. The island speaks to Richard through Jacob. The island speaks to Ben through Alex. The island speaks to our lostaways through Christian. Jacob is just a name for Smokey.
Jacob = corpse on the island = Richards brother/parther/dad..
Ben "We don't even have a name for it"
Uh.. why wouldn't you have a name for that thing? You have to call it SOMETHING. I thought that was an anvil of foreshadowing when he said it, and I still feel it today.
My Adam and Eve theory still has a shot. I just hope I still get to see Egyptians and pirates.
And I really really hope the show makes it out of 1977 alive. If all our guys die here, I'll be bummed.
And what about the happy family? Charles, Eloise and Daniel. I heard someone say there was a belly rubbing scene? Is Eloise pregnant with Daniel in 1977? I think so. So, when the Purge happens, Eloise gets a call while Daniel is counting ticks on a metronome. The Purge happened, so now Daniel must go back. There are no other options to stop the past. Which can't happen. Lots of smart people with the foresight of a futuristic journal and they still end up screwing things up. :P
And once I got my mind around it...
The incident does not kill the lostaways. It will send them to the future. And the future is going to be alot more fun than Dharma. And its also going to be the exact same time "future Desmond" gets sent to after he turns the failsafe key, and this time, I'm sorry ladies.... He'll have his clothes on.
-Richard will see them be vaporized. But the energy will timewarp them instead. Remember, Richard seems completely clueless about time flashing when he says he saw them die.
-But they didn't do all this for nothing, John says.
-John is going to "kill" the myth of Jacob, and announce Christian.
-Jacob, Christian, Alex, and Smokey are all one in the same. The Island.
And I STILL hope I see Ancient Egyptians and 18th Century Pirates! \:D/
