There are 2 Smoke Monsters!!
Written 22nd March
Fact – Season 1, Locke came face to face with the Monster! It did not attack him.
From that point on, Locke was filled with faith.
Fact – The next time Locke saw the Monster (i think he was with jack and kate pos Mr Echo) everyone ran in fear, but Locke confident having met it before said “its ok” and approached it. The Monster then attack him and tried dragging him under ground! Locke looked completely shocked and confused.
Ben has refered to the monster as a ‘security system’ which protects the island. Ben even called it when the soldiers attacked! Yet the FLocke Smokie he seemed to not understand or know who or what it was.
So my theory is this.
Jacob can take the form of the Smoke Monster – as protector of the island.
MIB as we know takes the form of the Smoke Monster – but i think looks grey! not black like in previous seasons.
Perhaps the pillars of smoke are there spirits????
I think that early in Season 1 when Locke came face to face with Smokie(MIB) it saw the potential in Locke – the faith etc… and his plan began.
When Smokie(Jacob) saw Locke he tried to take him to prevent MIBs plan!
Or the Black Smoke Monster is the Cerberus protector on Jacobs side – therefore identifying that Smokie(MIB) had chosen Locke.
What y’all think!!?
