I had a what if thought. What if the scene between Jacob and MIb on the beach at the end of season five is also the last scene of this series.Â
Bear with me.Â
The writers have hinted that we have seen the last scene already.Â
Well what if the reason Mib says to Jacob do you have any idea how badly I want to kill you is because he has just been defeated by Jacob and the lostie.Â
I also have to mention that I have read theories on other sites that put forth the idea that Jacob and the Mib are one and the same, hence the emphasis on duality, balance, and scales. The dual aspects of good and bad can reside in one person as we saw with Sayid. Eventually this balance within his soul was tilted towards evil by Sayid becomeing infected.
Another point I would make is that Richard implied that his longevity was a product of Jacobs touch and that only a candidate could kill another candidate. This raises numerous questions the two most prevalent in my mind are; John Locke was touched by Jacob, yet he was murdered by Ben Linus. Is Ben a candidate? If not then is the real John Locke alive?Â
I posted a theory last week about the spider on John Lockes face before they took him away to be buried. In the last two epsides Nikki and Paulo have been mentioned. Is this some foreshadowing by the writers?Â
In each episode of this season we have started with the central character staring at their own reflection. Some theorists have posited that this is a subtle hint about mirror universes and other quantum theories. But what do you see when you look in a mirror. The person you could have been, the person you’d like to be, the person you are? Or do you see a strangers reflection staring back at you?
