What about the blonde boy?
The boy Flocke saw (richard didn’t, sawyer did) … Who is he and what did he mean by “You know the rules, you can’t kill him”.
The boy could mean “you can’t kill jacob”, in which case it is not a warning, but a sentence. Because MIB killed (indirectly) Jacob, he will have to pay for that. It would also imply that ther is in fact a higher force / being controlling the island and MIB / Jacob are one level below in importance.
Personally I prefer to believe the boy meant Richard or Sawyer. Richard is my favorite because the boy appeared when Flocke was confronting Richard and Richard didn’t see the boy. Also, after his appearance, Flocke seems to “cool down” about Richard and goes away.Â In this case, the boy could still be a higher being or Jacob himself (how he looked as a boy). The way Flocke looks at him, chases him and yells at him makes me believe Flocke knows him and perhaps knows he is Jacob.
If the boy meant Sawyer, then it makes me think that he was Jacob and meant; “you can’t kill one of the candidates” or “one of our dominoes”. By the way, I am still uncertain about the roles of the candidates. I don’t buy the “island keeper” crap MIB told Sawyer. I think they are there to work as pieces in a game MIB and Jackob were playing (or still are).
