The Devil betrayed me and stole my body, my humanity… explained MIB to a bewildered Richard Alpert about “the Devil” (that we know as Jacob).

We know that MIB is now appearing/using the identity and bodily form of John Locke, even though there is a dead body of John Locke buried on the island.

We know that MIB also takes the form of Smokey. We have seen Smokey make appearances as other people such as Alex and Yemi.

We know that the reason Ilana dragged around the coffin containing Locke’s dead body at first was because she wanted people to see who they were up against given that FLocke/MIB can no longer take on any other appearance. (It seems like we should get back to the meaning(s) of this statement before the show’s end. It feels kind of like a “rule” of sorts.)

I just can’t shake the idea that MIB was something like the first candidate, and he made some sort of deal with Jacob (maybe not necessarily the Jacob that we know) similar to the deal between Jacob and Richard. If that is the case, it would seem possible that somewhere along the line Jacob has done to MIB what MIB has done to John Locke.

If this was easy to figure out or explain, I don’t think I would bring it up, as usually only the writers can make anything make sense…usually. Since I can’t understand it and readily acknowledge that there are a couple of significant pieces missing (how/why/then what is Jacob?), it makes it that much more intriguing as an actual theory.

I’m sure we could look past this line as another manipulation, given that MIB’s instruction to Richard on how to kill the Devil were exactly the same as Dogen’s instructions to Sayid. Yet I think the writers added this line about how there is a “stolen body and humanity” situation in the middle of these other familiar statements (to us viewers) to be purposeful.

Ultimately we know that MIB has been the one using different forms and appearing as various people, but the fact that MIB revealed that his body was stolen and points it back to Jacob seems pretty important.

(Wish I could have posted this sooner after Ab Aeterno…oh well. It still seems relevant in the long run somehow.)

I just sign an acount of gravatar (or something like that), which alows u to have an avatar picture in this site. The thing is that while I’m logged out, my posts seem to be not visible now, rather, when I logg in, they pop in automatically somehow. MY QUESTION IS: ARE THESE COMMENTS SHOWN TO EVERYBODY? Cuz I would like them to be seen for everyone, else my comments and questions bout a topic will not get to them…anyone knows about this???

Thanx

It is a pretty straight forward question, but not simple in the least. I dont have my answer right now and if you dont a list of mysteries you would like to have answered would also suffice. This is a just for fun thing because I am at work and bored to death.

The Magus, a novel (1966) by British writer John Fowles.
The plot concerns a young teacher, Nicholas Urfe, who takes a job on a Greek island and finds himself lured into an elaborate fiction staged by a wealthy resident, Maurice Conchis. Fowles uses this enigmatic story to explore the nature of individual identity and freedom of choice.

this came to me just as i was about to fall asleep after last nights episode which suprised me since i usually hate Sun and Jin episodes. However back to my main point i’ve read a lot of theories about how people assume our losties can come together in the alt. After last nights episode i believe we are heading towards it. I belive they will all meet up in the hospital. It looks like most of are people are heading there. First Claire is probably still there recovering. Miles and Sawyer just nabbed Kate perhaps they go visit Claire. We know Jacks a doctor, and sayid’s brother is also in the hospital. Last night Sun gets shot! i think all of our charcters will meet up in the hospital and realize they need to go to the island

This may be common knowledge for some, but recently I have heard many people here, at work, podcast questions, and another site question the contents and importance of John Lockes backpack…

What is in the backpack…?

If you remember the scene with Jack and Ray off island, Ray gave Jack Christians black shoes that he was supposed to be wearing when returning from Australia in the casket.
Jack then went to where ‘dead Locke’ was…and put them on him.

When Ajira crashed on the island, John was shown in the suite for a bit…but then after changing, and before leaving for the main island…he clicked the shoes together (wizard of oz style) and put them in the bag…coincidence that he clicked the shoes together and wants to go home…I think not…

Christian was seen by Frank and Sun in the Rec room on the main island, and gave them the picture of the Losties from the 70s…telling them to wait for Locke.

Christian was also seen in the cabin in “Cabin Fever” and “The Man Behind the Curtain”.
I have been saying that MIB is actually Christian, or vice versa… but being that Christian appeared on the freighter, told Michael he could go now, and disappeared just before the freighter exploded…and with the recent confession from Flocke that he cannot just turn into a cloud of smoke and fly across the water (“because that would be ridiculous”)…it makes it hard for me to believe anymore that Christian IS Smokey…although MIB may have a few tricks left up his sleeve…or at least in his backpack…

The point is, that one way or another Christian is seemingly the man behind the curtain…whether that curtain is “black” or “white” is yet to be seen…
I guess MIB knows about Christian…or at least that Jack put those shoes on Locke…My bet is that MIB is going to use the shoes as a sign to trick Jack into either believing that he is the real Locke…believing that Christian is on his side…or just to gain his trust in general…

The shoes…black and white…and Christian Shepard are not done on Lost…and if MIB is stuck looking like John Locke…my guess is that Christian is a separate entity altogether…unless Jack takes over for Jacob and MIB is able to then change form yet again…

I KNEW THE WRITERS MADE A MISTAKE WITH THIS – MAYBE I’M WRONG BUT LET’S SEE!

IN A PREVIOUS POST I WANTED TO KNOW HOW SAWYER GOT FROM THE CAVE BACK UP TO THE TOP OF THE ISLAND AFTER BEING SHOWN THE NAMES SCRATCHED ON THE CEILING BY FLOCKE. THE ROPE LADDER SNAPPED AND FELL INTO THE SEA SO THIS COULD HAVE BEEN PRETTY IMPOSSIBLE.

SOME PEOPLE SAID THE SMOKE MONSTER CARRIED SAWYER UP AND SOMEONE EVEN SAID THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN A SECRET EXIT FROM THE BACK OF THE CAVE. ME, I THINK THE WRITERS HAVE MESSED THIS ONE UP IN HURRY TO GET THE STORY TOLD IN THE REMAINING EPISODES LEFT. IT’S NOT A MAJOR FAULT BUT IT’S SOMETHING I FEEL THEY WOULDN’T HAVE DID IN THE FIRST COUPLE OF SEASONS.

POINT BEING IN “THE PACKAGE” SAWYER ACTUALLY ASKS WHY FLOCKE CAN’T TURN INTO THE SMOKE AND FLY ACROSS THE SEA SO THE WRITERS I THINK HAVEN’T THOUGHT THIS ONE THROUGH!

JUST A SILLY POINT BUT IT’S SUMS UP PERFECTLY MY FRUSTRATIONS WITH THE WAY THEY HAVE WRITTEN THIS FINAL SEASON. I ALSO FEAR DARLTON ARE GOING TO COP OUT ON ALOT OF THINGS SUCH AS THE WHISPERS, FOOD DROPS ETC (I HOPE NOT THOUGH) – ANY COMMENTS WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED, THANKS 🙂

She took a pretty bad fall and was brought round by Ben. Maybe she will become infected? After all, they are supposedly never meant to be together (Sun and Jin). And she went a bit weird afterwards and miles looked at her weirdly. But she had to make a choice and chose Jack/future Jacobs side.

What do you guys think?

I dont know if most of you have seen Lost: Missing Pieces (the short little mobisodes, you can find them on youtube) or not but I feel that if the writers dont/cant/forget to answer some of the major/popular mysteries, that they should do it through this method (or a video game, that the main writers/producers/creators write and have final cut and say so on, with all the character licenses and voice talents as well and a complete and accurate map of the island, where you can explore the hatches, turn the FDW, go back in time, and play as one of the main characters (I thought that the Lost game totally sucked and had more fun putting together those puzzles than playing it, plus it ended totally lame)). So anyway, i was wondering who also thought that was a good idea, because if enough people thought it was a good idea, I was going to start an onlione twitter petition (believe or not Damon himself (yes, his account is verified has given me a few shout outs, I think that is just the fact that out 250 or so tweets 200 are about Lost/him). so anyway, let me know what you think.

Hi Guys

I just wanted to point out (I might have before, but i honestly cannot remember) that the temple does not resemble ancient Egyptian temples at all. It looks like a temple from the height of Mesopotamia or from a south American culture. So, I propose that other cultures were brought to the island, not just ancient Egyptian.

Does someone have any theory on why Flocke is carrying around a backpack and drinks water from his water bottle so frequently?

Hi all! I haven’t been reading (amnesty please…I just had my second baby) and I am curious if there is a list of issues that will regretably go unresolved due to production/time constraints. It is obvious that there will be some, and I think I’ll be less disappointed if I know what to expect.

I dont think anyone mentioned this possibility:
Recall that 108, the number to which Hurley was supposed to turn the wheel in the lighthouse, bore the crossed out name, “Wallace”. According to Lostpedia, the novel A Wrinkle in Time (which appears on Sawyer’s dresser in “Recon”) has a character named Charles Wallace. This Wallace is psychic, messes with time, and appears as an evil cloud called The Black Thing.

Does the conversation between Sawyer and MIB last night confirm that the Man In Black is not Christian in any way?

When Sayer was talking about MIB turning into smoke…MIB alludes to Sawyer that he cannot float over water, otherwise he would have just flown off the island…

Since Christian appeared and disappeared on the freighter…does that confirm that MIB and Christian are not the same entity…or is MIB lying?

I dont believe much that he has said…but I believed him last night about that…

Desmond isn’t a character I’ve focused on too much in discussion… just when arguing about what he can and cannot do with his future-seeing ability. I just haven’t been that interested in the character or his story… and I don’t really think that the issue of having a constant will be much of an issue between now and the end of the show. But lo and behold, here he is, back on the island and now going by his porn name “The Package”.

So Charles Widmore made it fairly clear last night that his position is opposed to the Man-Formerly-In-Black-But-Now-In-Filthy-Green. His secret weapon is none other than “The Package”, Desmond Hume. There’s a lot more going on here than he let on last night so I assume (or hope) that we’ll be getting a lot more information on Charles Widmore and his plan. For instance, his mission, as declared, is to stop the MIBBNIFG from leaving the island. He has control of the plane but for whatever reason he hasn’t simply destroyed it yet. His minions managed to successfully attack MIBBNIFG’s camp and sedate everyone yet they only took Jin. They should have taken Sawyer at least since MIBBNIFG needs all of the candidates to leave the island, right? Especially since they needed Jin to answer questions about the DHARMA Initiative and Sawyer (LaFleur) would have at least as much information as Jin, probably more. I digress.

Charles Widmore’s stated mission is to prevent MIBBNIFG from leaving the island in order to protect the people back in the real world… He names Penny as his motivation (well, his daughter… I’m assuming he meant Penny but that could come back to bite me). He’s also gone though a lot of trouble in the past to keep Desmond away from Penny… and who can blame him? I wouldn’t want my daughter dating a guy nicknamed “The Package”… would you? But seriously, why? Is it because Desmond is poor? That might be a big deal to some people but really; I think that could be overcome. I think Widmore has somehow known things about Desmond and his future all along and he wanted to keep them separate to protect Penny.

Desmond’s name does not appear in the lighthouse or on the cave wall. He has no number. He is not a candidate. Yet he was brought to the island. People don’t just wash up randomly on the shore. Not on this island. But who brought him? I think it’s possible that the MIBBNIFG brought him to the island. I have a feeling he may be sort of a Richard for the MIBBNIFG. There is one parallel between the two that seems kind of anecdotal but still… there are similarities between the scenes when Richard killed the doctor and when Desmond killed Inman. That may or may not have been intentional.

If Desmond is a kind of “variable” thrown into the equation with the Candidates being the “constants” then I think it’ll be because the MIBBNIFG brought him into the equation. I wouldn’t be entirely surprised to see a scene from the past with Desmond on the beach before Inman found him being approached by the MIBBNIFG and touched… possibly endowing him with certain abilities. But who knows. Really, for my money, I hope Desmond doesn’t turn out to be something really, super important to the story. It seems right now though that he’s important to the MIBBNIFG, or maybe important as some kind of weapon against him.

This is an article I came accross today in Popular Science, and of course, I immediately thought of lost. Probably wasn’t in the writers minds, but interesting nonetheless…

I follow both of the producers of lost on twitter and last night Damon Lindelof tweeted last night that “In one week, the conversation is going to change.” I hope this means that next weeks episode is going to give us a lot of answers….but lets be real if the conversation is changing it probably means we will be asking more questions. Thoughts?

As a side note: his bio on twitter says “Yeah, I’m one of the idiots behind LOST. And I have NO IDEA who’s coming to the island!” I’m not sure if I should laugh at this and hope he is mocking everyone who doubts them or is serious and we are all screwed.

I am under the impression that the writers are trying to mislead us in regards to the root of this show. I do not think that anything happening is supernatural in nature. I think the show is going to be firmly rooted in scientific theories. Which can seem to be supernatural.

So based on that I have been really focussed on all this talk about the MIB and him being evil. I do not think he is an evil entity. I think he might be a human that has been put in a situation that has caused him to become evil. But it’s all a matter of perspective I think. Here are the statements about him and the situation that have been spoken.

-He is evil
-He will infect
-If he leaves the island everyone will go to hell
-If he leave the island every living person on the island will die
-If he leaves the island everyone (this time meaning on and off island) will cease to exist

The last one being from last nights episode. Spoken be Charles. So in my opinion when someone says someone will “cease to exist” they are not talking about death in the regular sense.

After last nights episode I was happy to see Desmond’s return. Then I was thinking about what they took Jin for. They wanted him to help make sense of the location of the pockets of energy. Somehow they are related to MIB getting off island. Desmond has had the most intimate contact with this energy when he turned the failsafe key in the hatch. Something happened to him there that made him an anomaly. No longer bound by the rules.

So here is what I have got so far. It’s crazy, but I’m sticking to my guns on this. Till the writers totally prove me wrong…

MIB is just like the rabbit from The Orchid orientation video. In the video Marvin is explaining the station is not a botanical research station. He is holding a rabbit with a “15” written on it’s side. Then something happens, he freaks out, and behind him is another “15” rabbit on a shelf. It seems to blink into existence. He yells at some co-workers to get it away from the one he is holding. I believe this shows us that two of the same entity can not exist in the same space, at the same time. Which is a common theory in sci-fi.

Then think about the Lighthouse and the mirrors. It could be that the names written around compass represent realities, and the specific person in that reality. So the island with it’s magnetic pockets of exotic material is perhaps a focal point? A place in which all possibilites can be seen.

Now imagine that MIB somehow comes in contact with the Island long ago. The island being super special as it is. Caused him to become what he is… somehow. More importantly though, makes him an anomaly and unable to return to a regular state. Perhaps he exists outside of reality, unhinged in time, unable to exist in a specific timeline. If he were to return to a timeline not of his own, he would cause a chain reaction that would destroy that reality, or perhaps all realities.

Desmond is somehow part of this. Being similar to MIB in some way? Maybe he can stop his leaving?

I can’t put it all together yet. That is what I go so far though.

Let’s hear what you think folks!

(Don’t write that the equation = 108x. It’s just a title for the theory)

The variable has returned.

Faraday was wrong, the losties were not variables. Only Desmond was, because the rules do not apply to him. The losties are the constants. Any number is a constant, as the numbers in the title, and Jacob’s given numbers for the losties. The x is Desmond, and he is the ultimate factor in balancing the equation.

Since the candidates are constants, who are they constants for? I keep see-sawing between two possibilities.

1)The island. They have all time travelled (I’m assuming Jin is the candidate due to this line of thinking). And so they keep the island steady, and the one who takes over Jacob’s role becomes the main constant for the island and therefore stops ageing. They ensure the island’s safety and well being. So Flocke kills the constants, destroys the island and is free to infect the world.

2) Flocke – perhaps he is not lying and needs the candidates in order to make a safe transition off island. Without these constants he will not be able to survive on the outside world.

I’m leaning towards one. And I want to add that after getting my frustrations off my chest last week I was able to enjoy this episode without trying to be too critical. Hope I watch every episode in the mood I watched last night’s.
