Touched by an Angel
I, like many of you (probably all) are anxiously awaiting for Feb 2nd to swing around so that we can have something new to discuss! Unfortunately we are all still stuck on last seasons finale and the questions are lingering. To me this is unacceptable, I want my answers! I know that in order to get those answers I must wait, but the least I can do is put together the information we have now to try and figure out what is going on.
Lets start with who is Jacob. Obviously a man, he needs to eat, needs shelter, etc. But what makes him so special? I think at some point in his life Jacob became a vessel, a vessel that has been inhabitated by some sort of power (a light/good power). This power allows him to travel through time and by touching the 815ers he is not only leading them to him (like a light house) but giving each a piece of his (light/good) energy.
Once Jacob was stabbed and burned to death in 2007 you would think that all of the power inside of him was lost. Possibly most of it was lost in 1977 (with those he touched), but their is still a piece of him in Sun – I will get back to this.
This is the point in my theory where everyone says “But he touched Locke,” and yes I have taken that into account! The day that Jacob touched Locke he gave him some of this light/good power as well. Later while on the island Locke had two interesting experiences with the black smoke monster. First time it just looked at him and flashed (similar to what it did to Kate & Juliet) and the second time it tried to drag him into a hole like one of the The French team members.
At this point Locke is the only character to have been touched by Jacob and the black smoke monster. Since then a war has broken out inside of John Locke, two entities fighting inside of him. When he visited the cabin for the first time, the energy inside of him and the energy in the chair came too close and all hell broke loose.
Now we have the Locke we all know and love jumping around through time, which if you really think about it can screw up a lot of things. Evil-Locke saw his former self (actually remembered it happening) jumping around with a bullet wound in his leg. He instructed Richard to tell his past self to bring everyone back and that he must die. He probably wanted his past self to die in order get rid of the second version, since his former self did not bring him back to the island anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The moment Locke turned that wheel, Evil-Locke popped up. We really have no idea how long Evil-Locke had been waiting on the beach for the Ajira flight to arrive, for Ben to come back.
Think about it, Evil-Locke told time jumping Locke to go die, meanwhile he is living all good in 2007. Having Richard tell Locke to bring everyone back and die was not how he got to where he was in 2007 otherwise Evil-Locke would still have needed Locke alive.
Evil-Locke was probably not expecting Ben and Jack to bring the dead body back with them.
***If light/good energy or power can be killed by fire, I want to guess that dark/bad energy or power can be killed by water*** This makes me believe that Smokey cannot leave the island and that Christian is an entity of Jacob because he met Michael on the freighter to say goodbye.
If “They are coming” means that the touched 815ers found some way back to Sun (the lighthouse), then maybe Sun is “the one who will save us all”
