Amy…I Wish You Would Have Believed Me…

Coming into the homestretch here…I have to be honest… This is probably the last real theory I am going to write about this show.
I realized something about the episode “The Candidate”…It was possibly the best Lost episode to date in my mind.
Now calm down, I know, I know…its not my favorite, but probably the best.
Why?

Because I dont think a full hour of the day has passed since it aired, that I have been conscious for, that I didnt think about it. Everyone who watches Lost was huddled up all day, the day after…everyone who watches Lost agrees that the death of Jin and Sun was extremely sad, and for the most part completely out of nowhere.

We had Locke on full blown rampage, breaking necks, and showing the entire Lost universe, that his plan was indeed to kill the Losties. Did he and Widmore set this up…or does he really just know everything? Does he read minds, can he SENSE the bomb due to his electromagnetic ability…he freed Ben from the metal chains with the flick of a wrist, but had to cut Desmond loose from cloth with a knife…”God” from the Machine…I do believe he is “machine” or at least created from it…(btw…machine=island)
We had Claire get left behind…again. I mean…Are you freakin’ serious…AGAIN!!!???
We had Sayid sacrifice himself, and tell Jack, “Its going to be you”, and prove Hurley to be true, that one who has gone to the dark side can return…just as Anakin…or who I think will act the role, MIB in our story.
We had Sawyer tell Jack…to push MIB into the water…and then he would take care of the rest…I dont say this very often…but WTF JAMES?!?! Great plan…Locke is fine, and his “taking care of everything”, consisted of Kate getting shot, Claire getting left behind, and HALF…yes HALF of the candidates, and Frank most likely being killed. Maybe…just maybe, he cant turn into the monster while he is wet. I know he is referred to many times as a “sodding old man”, but he did get out of the water quite slow for the smoke monster…have to wait and see if James was right…
Has Jack ever called Sawyer James before? Its amazing how he has taken over more of a role of Locke, than of Jacob.

These people, many of them are following Jacob, or MIB, both seemingly out of fear when you think about it. The people who followed Jacob, the others, they only followed because they had nowhere else to go…fear of the monster in the jungle…
The one who followed Flocke follow out of fear as well, for the same person.
Hell, think about Dogen…he followed Jacob out of fear of his sons life, Juliet out of the fear of her sisters…

Jack…Jack is not following either in my opinion. When he pushed John into the water, he said “John Locke told me…”. Jack DOES believe in John Locke now, his own personal “Obie One”, and I believe Hurley may help with communicating with Locke if my thought on Locke coming out in MIB falls through. Regardless…I believe that Jack is fighting for his belief in John… at the moment at least. More on this in a few minutes, back to what happened…

Speaking of Jack acting like Locke…
We had Sawyer, act in a way that was very reminiscent of Jack last year…thing is…Jack was possibly correct in what he did…Jugghead may not have been the mistake it once seemed…When Sawyer pulled the wires…you knew it wasnt over…we knew Sawyer was wrong…and Jack was right.

We had Jack more or less tell him so…and save him…and make the right choices, but still followed anothers lead…when will he get it?…yes…now. Whatever is supposed to happen, Jack is supposed to at least lead the charge, although I STILL believe that Locke is the candidate.
But I also believe that jack is going to try like hell to take JOHNS place as candidate…but I dont think that John will let him.

We saw Hurley cry, we saw Kate cry, we saw Jin cry, we saw Sun cry, and we saw Jack…ALMOST cry…and absorb it all…carry guilt…the resposibility…the PAIN…and he needs this pain to help him get where he is going…and he knows this…

As several know, I am a firm advocator of ‘change’, and the what happened, did indeed happen…to help change the past. Something, one way or another has been critically altered…you can bury your head in the sand…but everything is still going to be different when you pull it out…

Last year I wrote two posts stating for one, that Amy would end up being Amelia, and she would be a spy, or at least jump ship from the others, ending up being the old woman that has tea parties with juliet and the others…hence Ethans being an other as well…

The other thing that I bolstered about in those theories…was “Change” or time loops…and I still stand behind it.

Here are the links…I havent read them in quite a while, but I have to say it seems to be more or less, working pretty much as I hoped it would in those two theories, I definitely recommend reading them before this. They really dont seem that long ago, considering some of the predictions. The comments are good, but long…

Im telling you now, you are not going to understand everything I am talking about if you dont read them. Over the last few years so many have been patient with my purposely vague theories trying to really drive things home in the comments. So many have been patient with my improper use of punctuation, and rambling, almost incoherent, at times theories…so if you have, and you enjoyed any of it…this is the last one…so please, read the two links and the more than 150 comments inside, at least the ones that I wrote to understand my thoughts here…just like those theories, I am going to do everything possible to make it worth your while. Really…what else do you have to do…?

If people want to say Im crazy, or wrong, go ahead…maybe I will be. But in those two theories and comments, I talked about alternate timelines…coexisting, the Losties doing things they shouldnt (jugghead), where they would flash after they did…and most importantly…that they would indeed change the past.
Ive been quite honest here…quite polite with some of the BS I have put up with (not incinuating in any way I am the only one). Ive taken things from being arrogant and bullying, which Im not in any way and dont condone the bullying at all…defending my thoughts is not bullying, its simply defending my thoughts.
People have said I post spoilers here…most recently called a spoiler hunter…I cant even get mad at it anymore because its such a joke. As of up until this year, and even now I would say through this year, I have gotten maybe three or four minor details correct, aside from many “duh” answers, such as Des being in the sub and whatnot…I havent read a spoiler since season 2…and even then…I didnt even know what a spoiler was. I thought some genius was predicting Lost to a T…and was quite disappointed to learn what a geek I had become over a television show…

If you want to say I follow spoilers, and post them here…as I know some have and do…not to break my polite nature…but you can @*$# off…that being said…Thank you very much to anyone who reads further. One person reading and enjoying this is worth every second writing it. I try to ignore everything I have learned about writing a serious theory in real life, and tried to really put emotion and feeling into each one here…I dont apologize or regret anything up to this point anymore…and if you have a problem with what I have done in the past…might want to jump ship from this one now…

Im going to base my last theory on my two favorite and trouble making posts of the past…and here we go…

http://www.theoriesonlost.com/2009/03/amyam-i-wrong/

and

http://www.theoriesonlost.com/2009/03/am-i-wrongpart-twolinking-2-seperate-theories/

No matter which way you cut it at this point, it seems there has been changing of the past on Lost.

If the FSW turns out to be the real world, something I called bluff on quite a bit this season, then that would mean one of two things…

1) The original timeline, the one where “what happened, happened”, was altered by use of the hydrogen bomb, and the island was sunk. Therefor not allowing the plane to crash, and changing the past… by going to the past, and changing the future.
The island wasnt there, there was no button to push, and the plane lands safely in LA, with all of the past being seemingly ‘flashed away’, with nothing but fading(or building) memories left over. But with these memories, they would be able to connect with their old selves, and remember not only the current FSW past, but the ‘erased past’ of earlier seasons as well.

other option…

2) The bomb didnt sink the island, it neutralized the energy, and actually caused what we see happening now on island to occur as well. The past that was changed, was the FSW past, which is why NOW the losties remember their on island past, because it is now their actual past…the old past, with Jacob is slowly being erased by old memories, when certain events trigger such a thing, such as electromagnetism, Love, Death, and physical contact…or touch. Ill tell you why this NOW makes more sense to me…somewhat when we get a little further.

Change…change…change…you can yell “alternate timeline” or “WHH” from the top of the mountain…but Ill just stand here and whisper “change”…Even if in the end its the FSW that is real, and I was incorrect about it…then it would still be altered by the island timeline…”change”.

Sooo… if what I say about Amy/Amelia is true, then we havent seen it yet. We also havent seen the Swan get put into action, who actually caused the purge, and any other missing links…and they all seem pretty important in my eye. Because of when the DI was purged, it doesnt make sense because it isnt immediately after the incident…so there is either another reason why the others attacked…or the others didnt attack until they were urged to by another voice…
Jacob…?
MIB (Locke)…?
How about Charles Widmore…from 2007…
What if there was another option? Something that cleared up a few of my earlier predictions, and answered a few unanswered questions as well…

If the island didnt sink, then it becomes quite obvious that the Dharma Initiative gains perspective through the Losties actions with Jugghead, and Chang/Radzinski would most likely order the Swan to work immediately in order to continue to neutralize the effects of the energy, as the bomb did…

What if we see the someone(?) turn the wheel again, and go back to the 70s? Maybe upon their return, they flash back to the FSW reality of the island…and this person flashes to Tunisia in 2004 FSW…

We need to see those things happen, because if the island did NOT sink because of the bomb, and it actually kept it afloat…it still has to sink right? It would be an island that Ben and his father discussed over a TV dinner one night, and could prove to be how and why the Swan gets built…that has got to be explained right?

So the DI ships Widmore off, and then soon after he appears again, ordering the Others to conduct the Purge…or maybe its even Flocke that orders it…that would almost make more sense.
Richard would remember him from the 50s, and do what he says because they already saved the island twice by burying Jugghead, and then detonating it to neutralize the energy (which is why option 2 above makes more sense now).
Who knows…maybe even ageless Richard made the call. Nobody would know the difference because he looks the same…actually giving purpose to his not aging, and completely blowing an older Bens mind as he watches his younger self take orders from what he now knows as a time traveller…that would be pretty nuts…

One group goes to the others, probably the Losties, and the other group goes to the DI, probably Widmore, making my thoughts on his eventual jumping ship to the others come true. Amy may not get off the island, but goes to the others out of fear, and to protect her child.

I would like to take a shot at doing something many have…answering who MIB is…if he is someone we know, and not the devil, god, Hanso, or DeGroot…Im not sure I believe any of this…I think it may be explained that MIB and Jacob are two different entities, and always were…but just in case…

With the understanding that the book “Bad Twin” was dumped by the creators of the show, I still believe there was some clue, if in nothing else but the title…here are my possibilities for Bad Twin…aside form the two Johns…

1) The obvious…Jacob and MIB.
Somehow through the islands electromagnetic properties, one was split into two, one light…one dark and they became who we know them as, Jacob and MIB.

Or… even more simple option…is that they are actually brothers by blood…

Im not sold on either of these…So I have to go with my gut if MIB is a character that we actually know…yep…Im going there…

2) Aaron is MIB…this is probably the most far fetched, IMO…but for whatever reason makes some sort of stupid sense.

Here is my idea of how this is somehow possible…

Aaron begins to grow up in the flash sideways and returns to the island in the future by flashing, and then at some point soon, it goes back in time, very far back…and he is “raised by ‘an-other'” and begins to grow up as two different people, because he feels the effects of BOTH timelines from the future, because he exists in both, possibly why Walt is special…

As he grows up, he is approached by the monster, and is somehow taken to one of the wells where it proceeds to “swap” conscious with Aaron, most likely through drowning, or at least water …and steal his body. (“Jacob stole my body”) The boy who grows up IS Jacob, and looks like Aaron, and Aaron is left in the form of the monster, possibly only able to take the form of Jacobs last body/form, which is MIB…yeah, its ridiculous, I just wanted to post an Aaron is MIB theory before it proves NOT true…

Honestly…its quite difficult for me to believe this scenario…the more likely answer, if he is anyone would be that he is in fact Christian, being the way he held Aaron when he first visited Claire in the jungle. That is of course if he is anyone we know. I wrote a theory called “Jacob is Bad, A Recession Proof Economy”, explaining that Jacob is off island, and is the Economist in the self titled episode..with that thought, Jacob could very well be the one controlling peoples souls, or at least governing their actions on and off island to a certain degree…MIB can control the body, Jacob can control the soul…it would be almost poetic if its true, and the story above of Aaron (be it him or anyone else) happens as stated.
If Jacob was actually using MIBs body, how funny it would be that MIB could not kill him…and can occupy the physical forms of the dead…so whay doesnt Jacob want MIB to kill him…so he cant get his body back!

I think Chrsitian is inside of Jacob…somewhere, and so is Isabel, and possibly even Michael.
Michael tried to stop Hurley from blowing up the plane…why?
Because if it blows up, they could die…and Jacob doesnt want them to die…because if they die, they go to the flash sideways…where there is no island.

Chances are that MIB is simply MIB…so I will play the last of my theory to that tune…but its fun to think about the scenario above, no? ALthough I cant help but still keep the idea of Locke coming through MIB on island…or at least controlling him a bit …

Maybe Jacob is the bad guy…maybe MIB is looking to fix what was done wrong so long ago to him…

Maybe Jacob is the economist, and the devil…but how would this make sense to the conversation on the beach with MIB…?

So Jacob seems to believe that people can be good, seemingly to represent “goodness”…

What if them being capable of doing good, only makes the fact that they have done bad so much worse? Think about it…if people are capable of being good, and they are not good…would that make them more responsible for their actions?

The Man in Black puts his hand in the cookie jar, not only because he knows that man will do bad, but they will do it out of faith of what is right…by simply waging war, man proves Jacob wrong…he tries to give people the benefit of the doubt…he tries to allow them a chance to just do the right thing…just as he hoped he was wrong about Ben killing him, he will be wrong about this as well…
Jacob simply implying that the monster is evil, even if its only a message for one man to tell another, ala Richard the advisor…he is still having someone make his move for him.

I think its Jacob that knows he has to keep someone on the island…so that he can one day steal his form and start this charade…this circle all over again…just as he did to MIB…

MIB is trying to stop it from happening. By killing the Losties, he is taking them out of the equation…he is making Jacob cross them off his list, and leaving him nowhere, or nobody to hide in…The reason why Aaron makes sense is because he is a child.
I think that him being clean of sin has a lot to do with everything…a Tabula Rasa if you will.
Maybe Aaron isnt MIB, but he is the body Jacob occupies…probably not, but I cant get it out of my head recently.

In my theory on Jacob being the economist, I question why MIB wants to go home so badly…is it to stop Jacob…or is it simply to go to a time that he does not exist.

It very much seems that by death, you can be connected to the flash sideways…If the two timelines can be connected in such a way, I have to believe that by dying on the island, they would flash to the FSW…just as Juliet seemed to do when she spoke of “going Dutch” just before she died.
I think that she will get to live her life off island as, at the very least an aunt to Julian, and sister to Rachael. Maybe she is Davids mother…maybe its Sarah…who knows at this point…but I dont doubt for a minute that her going Dutch could be with a certain detective.

I thought before that Sawyer was going to possibly die by the hands of Kate, due to him wanting to kill Jack…but now that James understands what making a mistake feels like…he may feel it is necessary to actually sacrifice his life for Jack, most likely in front of Kate…
This would allow Sawyer to die on island, sacrifice himself, making his own choice, and then being rewarded through being reincarnated into the FSW, and being reunited with Juliet.

I believe Hurley will die as well, and may possibly be the saddest death we see on Lost. Although in the end, it may able him to reconnect off island with Libby, and know what she knows, most likely remembering the island past.

Richard, Ben, and Miles will most likely arrive in time to help fight off Widmore…I really think that no matter whos side ben ends up on…it will be the opposite side as Charles Widmore. I feel that their grudge will hold up until one of them dies, most likely Widmore first…HOPEFULLY at the hands of either Ben or the Monster…

From that point Ben will more than likely sacrifice himself in a manner that makes up for all the things of the past…but I still think somewhere…somehow…Benjamin Linus has an ace up his sleeve. He has been a bit of a letdown this season from the perspective of his character…and I think he has a big finale waiting before his death…If he too connects with the FSW, how ironic would it be for him to actually hook up with Danielle…and become Alexs father?
Either that or he gets Annie back somehow…

Miles could very well talk to both Jacob(Im sure somehow the ashes are OK), and the bodies at the cave…who I still feel will be Rose and Bernard…”Only Fools are Enslaved By Time and Space”…and maybe even give away a huge secret before he bites it…I imagine the smoke monster may have something to do with it…Im sure he wouldnt like anyone giving away anything he has done in his past, plus due to what I say above about MIB possibly being the good twin…does it make sense yet?

I imagine, and hope that Richard Alpert will have the opportunity to be reunited with Isabel…he HAS to be able to make his own choice in his death though…I think thats what this is getting at…

Jacob took away the one thing that makes it very hard to believe he is good…choice. Although Richard asked and wanted to live forever…as MIB (and Chief) said, Jacob gave it to him in his most vulnerable time…
Although young James needed a pen…and wanted more than anything to write that letter and kill Cooper…Jacob gave him that opportunity in his most vulnerable time…

And on Cooper himself…I didnt feel the least bit sorry for the guy…he is a terrible person, and maybe was turned vegetable BEFORE he could dupe John…who knows…but bottom line…they are being reincarnated, and as I said earlier in the season, and a few time last year…what the do now…with this second chance…is everything to them.

I feel Jin and Sun are reunited off isalnd because they were willing to die together on island…and I feel Cooper is a vegetable, because even upon being brought to the island…he still spit in the face of John and Sawyer…and ruined his second chance…does hell escape if the island sinks…?
Maybe not technically…but I feel that if you deserved “hell”…then in your next life…after reincarnation…you get what you deserve…Destiny is a fickle bitch…but Karma is a Mother ______…

And through Dharma…Karma and reincarnation are able to take place…the bad…dont get to keep being bad. They dont keep getting second chances..this is now their last chance…Anthony Cooper doesnt deserve another chance…and this is the universes, and dare I say gods way of showing us what he does indeed deserve.

I think Sayid already made his choice on and off island. I think that he not only sacrifices his life, but he sacrificed Nadia as a wife because he didnt deserve her…but he did…and thats not fair…so why not give him his other love back…
Maybe Sayid runs into Shannon somewhere…maybe theyll get some coffee together too sometime…

Claire has to die…has to. Her death will not appear in vain though, as she will connect with her FSW self, and be reunited with Aaron. At least for a bit…

Thats leaves us with Locke, Jack, and Kate on the island…

As stated in previous posts…I think Helen is going to die of a brain aneurysm, and I think John may also proceed with the surgery. I think its very possible that while on the operating table, he and Jack may begin their fianal struggle on island. Being that we flashed back to the past, it may somehow resurrect Jacob, and we may have a fourth on island now as well. Maybe that is the purpose of the boy…maybe…

I think that Jack will try and be what everyone wanted and hoped he would be his entire life…a hero, a leader, and a great man. I think that it will come to a point where Jack has to make a decision between himself and John Locke, and will choose John. Achairaisthekey…where are you now…?
I really believe that the episode when Achaira tattoos Jack, and tells him that he will be a great man…it has very important significance. I think that what its translated to by Isabel, “He walks among us, but is not one of us”, refers to Jack as being one who can walk through time like Des can, who can heal the sick, and possibly be the great man and a leader…and if he is the one who Jacob would choose…would that not make him into the next MIB if the idea of Jacobs replacement involves him taking their body pans out? Which would make the “frightened and lonely” part that follows pretty understandable…something to think about…especially on a time travelling island.

As the story wraps up, I think Jack is going to start to see Christian off island again. and Christian is going to be pushing him to help save John, and help him walk again as well. This is the part when Jack will fully start to see the big picture…the one John has been trying to paint for him the entire time.

I think its very possible that Christain at some point was controlled or manipulated by both MIB (on island) and Jacob (off island).(Good and Bad twin?) And in the end, Jack will face them both in different timelines, and have to decide which one to follow. Lets not forget something…MIB said that he looked like Christan and that he was trying to help Jack…he never said that he wasnt Christain, of course he didnt say that he was either…and Jacob told Richard “that wasnt your wife”…he never said it wasnt him…

I believe that the war that takes place is known to Widmore because he lived through it in his past…the islands future. It may have been what sparked his off island journies, and what I think leads to HIM actually creating the DI with Hanso and DeGroot…in all reality…Hanso-DeGroot connection from the little that we know resembles a Widmore-Faraday connection in a similar manner, almost begging me to ask the question of loops, cycles, reincarnation, or even family ties between the parties. Faraday worked out of Ann-Arbor, the same as DeGroot, and both of their main contributions came from foreign men on the outside who seemingly took them in, paid for research, and pushed them to the island at the same time. They were in search of something very important…a great power. The question is now the motive…and I do believe that Widmore was and is the bad guy of the story…and I cannot help but question his ties to Hanso further in regards to their purpose and desire.
Was it simply power? Or were they truly trying to do good for the world as we know it?

The scariest thing in the world to many is that the island is a spaceship…I have to agree that it is a possibility that a show originally created by JJ Abrams could very easily sway the direction of aliens in the last 5 minutes…be prepared for anything…thats the only way I have made it this far on Lost…

Now…If this is at all true, I would really like to believe that the island is actually an asteroid, or something to that nature…Chief wrote a theory a while back saying that it could end up being the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs…I found it a great thought, a way to allow the existence of alien life, and at the same time, keep us here on earth for the remainder of the show, and keep some of us in better moods when it is all said and done.

If you know the actual book “The Little Prince”, then there is no need to read about it, it just connects the dots in a way to show how it makes sense that the island is an asteroid, and how MIB or Jacob could be the prince…(see my thought above as Jacob/MIB/Aaron to update the theory)…The episode about who was after Aaron off island was called “The Little Prince”…

So…then I really started thinking…what if we are taking all of the many clues they have given us about “aliens” out of perspective? If someone from one country lives in another, they are considered an alien…so if someone from one time period inhabits another…would they not be an alien too?
To take it a step further, if someone from another timeline, not just time period inhabited another time line…another life, or existence, or universe…would they not be more alien than someone who simply occupied another counrty? What if the island is actually the “asteroid”, but it isnt from space, its from another timeline…and Jacob or MIB is the Little Prince, amazed at the peoples perspectives from “another life”…and how they act in this world…

So lets say for a minute that my Jacob idea above does pan out…whether MIB is Aaron or not, and whether Jacob is Aarons body or not…
Either way…SOMEONE from the future…from another timeline…Aaron, who had the title of an episode named “the little prince”, traveled from the future, to the island…to another timeperiod, in another timeline…and was taken over by whatever MIB is…and Jacob was…

How could he travel there? Because in the timeline on island we are seeing play out, someone will turn the wheel and move the island will land once to the 70s(for storyline purposes), once to the 1800s(maybe not until the end), and to 2007…of the FSW, where Aaron, or someone will be brought or go to at some point in his childhood so that he can grow up on the island to be the boy we see running around bothering MIB. This boy appears to be hindering him, but I believe, like many things on Lost, it could be trickery, and he is POSSIBLY trying to help.

I still think that no matter who he ends up being, the rest of this could come true. So if all this goes down…and dying on the island make you connect with your FSW self, wouldnt this kind of make MIB the good guy of the story?
In the process making me really drop my guard on him for the first time…and really letting go of my faith in Jacob for the first time.

I know, after last episode…how? But if dying is the way to being reincarnated, and dying for a cause, or a sacrifice helps you be granted a better life, then MIB was trying to help the Losties die to connect them to their true self,and what they would have been without the island…everything is good…the island is gone, the world becomes a better place…happy ending right?

But how is the island gone then? If you remember, here I leaned more towards the Losties actually preventing the island from being sunk rather than actually sinking it…so then how does the island end up on the bottom of the ocean?

I think this is where we will see Jack and John have their final “showdown”.
I believe that in the FSW, John will allow Jack to perform the surgery…and while he is under, on the island they will stand toe to toe, with John Locke trying to fight his way through MIB on the island.

The Man in Black will try and tell Jack that he is on his side, that he is not trying to hurt him, but help him as he said before.
I think that we may see Christian, one way or another through Jacob, telling Jack that his work is almost done, and that he can go soon. The Man in Black tries to tell Jack that it needs to be his choice when he “goes”, and that he needs to not allow Jacob to control him.
I believe at this point the dagger from “Ab Aterno” will come back into play.

I think either Jacob or MIB will possibly kill kate…I think it will be MIB, and I think it will enrage jack to a degree…until he does truly understand…

I think that Jacob/Christian will give Jack the knife wanting him to kill the MIB/John. MIB/John will again try and tell Jack that this is wrong, and that he needs to choose his own destiny. Jack will take the dagger from Jacob/Christian.

Off island, in the FSW, Jack will be operating on John…and I believe we will begin to see Jack Shephard make some critical mistake that puts Johns life in danger, causing beeping and flatlines…

On island, Jack will stand facing John, with his father behind him…

Off island Jack will begin to hear his father speak to him…

On island Jack will ask Locke about his father, about why he said he was him when they talked…and Locke will reply because I am your father…as he hands him a pair of black dress shoes out of HIS bag. (yeah…I know)

Off island Jack will struggle and fight as other doctors in the room stand back and watch him with pity as he fights for a life that cannot be saved, just as many have done to him before…

On island, Jack will realize what is happening, and realize that Jacob is not his father, that he did lie to them, and that he did deceive them. He approached them long ago, and touched them making sure that this world…this island exists now…and that the man in the hospital was not his father, but Jacob playing the part…or at least Jacks mind allowing it to.
Upon this realization, he will turn and stab Jacob…or what looks like his father, killing him for good.

He will turn to John…to MIB…to possibly his real father for guidance. He will ask John/MIB what to do next…in which MIB/John will reply…”Go home”

They will go to the place where it began and will end, the source of the energy, the frozen donkey wheel, the heart of the island…and John will pull out one more thing from his bag…explosives, to be a little more poetic, the last of the dynamite from blackrock.

Off island, John Locke begins to have a pulse again…and Jack begins to feel relieved, and does not hear his father anymore.

On island, upon understanding what is going on, Jack tells John that he can go home now…that this is his place, and he decided to do this on his own, his choice…he can walk his own path now.
He is the hero, he is the leader, he is the great man…

John reaches into his bag and pulls out one last thing, a knife…and thrusts it through Jacks midsection…Jack falls to the ground…

Off island, Jack works hard on John again…

As Jack lay on the ground John leans over him. Jack begins to cry,and asks John “Why?”…telling him that its not supposed to be this way…I saved you John…Yes you did Jack…yes you did…

Jack “flashes” back into the FSW, and John flatlines again, and Jack realizes what had just happened. He breaks down crying, realizing that he has LOST John for good…and that it was all over.

On island, John Locke takes the long elevator ride, or well trip (depending on the timeperiod) to the FDW…carrying the dynamite in hand/sack. The young boy appears to him, telling him that its not over…that he cant kill him…that he cant do this…John Locke looks the child dead in the eyes, and says sternly…”Dont tell me what i cant do”…and blows up, sinking the island and whats left of Jacob in the process…

Off island, the other doctors begin leaving the room, and Jack stands staring and crying in front of the dead body of John Locke…just then Lockes vitals jump, and he begins again to have a heartbeat…

After recovery…
They have a short conversation about what may or may not have happened, incinuating very much to us that they do indeed remember, but leaving the full decision up to us regarding whether they remember, or whether jack did indeed fix him.

Jack walks out of the room and bumps into a woman with Freckles in the hallway. He knows her, but he doesnt believe she knows him. He begins to play a cat and mouse game before it is revealed that Kate remembers him…and they decide to go and have coffee together…

Now…with that in mind…I would just like to conclude this by saying that I would not be least bit surprised to see at some point the Losties flash back to the island circa 2004, around the time of the crash. If this happened, and they did go back and have a chance to do things differently, we could learn that they are responsible for sinking the island, and stopping the loop or circle from continuing…maybe by NOT pushing the button or turning the key…
I think it would be a heros good bye if it was Desmond Hume who “conscious flashed”, performing what Widmore referred to as “making a sacrifice” before throwing him in the Ecectromagnetic box…
Upon doing so, he would flash back to the FSW, and be reunited with Penny, and get the years back he LOST on island, and most likely making another little Charlie…

Them going back to the pilot is something I always believed possible, its just with the time and direction, it doesnt seem like its where we are headed at this point…but I have to keep the option open, and be prepared for anything…and I strongly recommend everyone else does too.

And if we dont go back and find out anything about Amy, or the purge, or the swan, than maybe you or Amy shouldnt believe me…maybe…

But Ill tell you one thing…this has been a hell of a fun time, and I thank everyone who has ever gone through the trouble of attempting to decode one of my many theories.
Ive had a blast doing this, and in less than two weeks…yes LESS than two weeks…it will all be over.

Although I will still comment, and might throw in a fun or general post here and there, I write this last theory, in all honestly to try and be a little fair.
At this point, we are all more or less adapting our own theories in light of what is happening on the show. Its delete and insert now, and I would like to try and keep as much as my original thought as possible, right or wrong, but it does become quite difficult when writing a theory after “The Candidate”.

I hope in this last theory, along with the others I have written something pans out and turn up true…but in all honesty…anyone getting anything right would be a bit of a letdown, and I really believe that it will be something that like the rest of the show, takes us all by surprise.
What I really hope is that if nothing else, you have enjoyed what I have given over the last few years, that is why I do this you know…

This has been a great show, a great season, and a great site, and most of all…great people…and I truly mean that.
Again, thanks for taking the time to read this and any of my other theories…I cant express how much I appreciate any nice words that anyone has ever said about me here. This is something special that I really dont believe that any of us will see again in our lives from a television show, or possibly anything else…

So to conclude, I wish you DO believe me…and at the same time…I wish I am way off…and Im sure at least the second wish will come true…

This has been the greatest game I have ever played, thank you all very much for playing along with me…

  1. Wow – that is a lot to process!

    With regard to the two timelines, I’m not sure what to believe. I probably lean towards time splitting when the hydrogen bomb was detonated (or not) by Juliet. In that scenario, then course correction should lead to our Losties in the FSW world somehow rejoining the Island. But the Island has sunk?? Maybe the Island can be refloated – stranger things have happened! Some people have suggested that FSW represents a world where the Losties have what they thought they wanted. And yet they are still not happy. Is the FSW a fabricated world (bit like the Matrix) and the Losties need to wake up? Have also heard it suggested that the FSW shows that it is better to have loved and lost (Island world) than to have never loved at all (FSW). I guess we’ll soon find out.

    As for the rest of your theory – I don’t think we will be returning to the past. My feeling is that MIB is some form of human consciousness – somehow linked to everyone in the world, but particularly dependent on the Losties. Men are inherently evil, and as a result this is part of MIB. And he is tired of it. If he can purge the Island of people, then maybe he ceases to be (and so does mankind since they are linked in someway). Jacob constantly brings people to the Island in the hope that the ‘good’ people will win through – and maybe this would have a positive effect on MIB. No matter who he brings – spiritual people (the Others), scientific people (Dharma) – the evil still breaks through. In the end, I suspect some form of sacrifice in the name of love will change things – nullify or change MIB.

  2. About the island being sunk: We all know that islands don’t float above water but they go all the way down to lithosphere (well you get my point). So I believe that in FSW we have a major clue. The sea level has risen to cover the island. (Or perhaps the sea level decreased to reveal the island in a time before the current FSW). There is not any possible way the whole surface of the island (as we see it) to be undamaged and everything beneath it to be destroyed in order to sunk it. Except of course if the island is not really an island (by the definition of it)

  3. ok ive only read part of it, ill read more, but youre god and machine talk made me think of deus ex machina (episode title) is that where you were going with it?

  4. Who has enough time to type all this, let alone read all of this? I got bored after the first paragraph. We watch the show, we don’t need a scene by scene recap.

  5. AES – don’t listen to the complainers (although this was a bit long) you post great theories (as you reminded us, haha). I wouldn’t say that any of your theories spoiled the show for me, they just add to it. The best part about coming up with theories is seeing if they pan out. I don’t think anyone predicted what we are seeing now (in total) but I think quite a few people predicted the themes we are seeing.

  6. All I can say is, great job at incorporating all the main characters into the final few scenes. By main characters, I’m referring to Christian, MIB, John, Jacob, Jack, and even Aaron (with Aaron being involved with either Jacob or MIB, or both). Although everyone including yourself hopes you’re wrong for the sake of surprise, I really wouldn’t mind it ending this way. Your idea even gives the audience an idea of how the island originated. Thumbs up man.

    A couple quick things – I too would not be surprised in the slightest if Widmore’s character ends as simply being a power hungry dictator of sorts. He wants the island to continue on so that he can reap the wealthy opportunities it can provide for him (maybe the healing waters, ability to time travel). The problem is, he still knows more than we do about the island, and about the story overall. So unfortunately, it’s still hard to say what he’s truly up to. A man like that though, seems to be driven by greed, which always ends badly on a karma related island.

    Regarding your idea about what MIB is – We fans need to remember that there’s a good reason we still haven’t been given a name for him. This “MIB” label was simply driven by the fans. The idea that there is a part of this “MIB” within Jacob (his appearance, Aaron) as well is a great thought. It’s a lot to take in, and it’s tough to concentrate on, but Jacob DID take MIB’s body right? We very well might be seeing two parts of the same person when we look at Jacob and MIB.

    Onto Aaron being MIB. A couple months ago, I watched Claire’s first “centric” episode and stated the same thing to my girlfriend. There are not many things that would make a psychic tremble and react the way he did while talking about an unborn baby. It could just be his choice of acting, or it could be that he was instructed to act that way, with intense fear. I hope, and assume this is the case. Even that doesn’t tell us much, but it does tell us that there’s much more importance to the little rascal than we’ve been shown. A huge role for Aaron, I predict.

    One last thing regarding the show, I hope we learn how this black smoke can do what it does. I hope we learn how it came to be, and I’d like to know why Dharma (Radzinsky) labeled it “Cerberus”. It’s a bit different than calling someone “John Doe”. Cerberus has a particular meaning. Perhaps Radzinsky, being the “bad” person he was, saw a three headed hellhound when he looked into Smokie. Everyone sees different things when they look into the pillar it seems.

    Anyway, you ended your batch of theories with a really good one. Something tells me it’s not your last one though. We still have 4 hours of Lost ahead of us. I predict only the last two will give us “set in stone” answers. If “The Candidate” made you think this hard about the show, well, I doubt they’ll be showing us any crap episodes from here on out.

    As tough as it is to say “There’s still not something right with Jacob”, I’m happy to see you went against the grain a little with what you said is your last theory. That’s what it’s all about.

  7. ok, was able to read this all on my lunch break, very enjoyable but I have to disagree with a lot of your ideas. I don’t think Jack will see Christian in the Alt because “magical” things don’t happen in the Alt because it is “real” and not the crazy Island timeline where you can talk to the dead, etc. I think Jack will learn from Alt John that just because something can be fixed doesn’t mean it has to be fixed and this will help him move on and be with Kate (his true love). Notice they had the eye contact at the airport, not kate/sawyer. Sawyer will end up with Juliet. We will see all of these happy endings in Alt (real life) because of all the sad sacrifices that are made on the Island. Yes, there are 4 1/2 hours left and I think a lot will be explained but I do not think we will see DHARMA fully explained, I don’t think we’ll see Walt fully explained, I don’t think we’ll see Adam/Eve fully explained, I don’t think Valenzetti will be explained, I don’t think Radzinsky will be fully explained.

    However, with tonight’s episode and it’s MIB/Jacob centri theme this could easily totally prove this wrong and answer a ton of questions in just an hour of these 2 crazy brothers jumping through time killing parents and past candidates and each other messing with everyone and creating DHARMA and seeing the end of the world and going back and taking over Aaron’s body, etc…

  8. Ho-ly shit. I keep being amazed at how solid your theories are..how well your ideas fit together. Reading your ‘script’ of the show’s final scenes was almost perfect. I’d be so happy with an ending like that. But as you say, at the same time I hope we will be surprised by the finale.

    Regarding MIB..I think all options are pretty much open still. The simple fact that, like Chief said, we still don’t know his name, is enough for me to think that he could very very well be someone we already know. Aaron then would be by far the most logical one. But then…Lost and logic?

    I still don’t understand the whole part about the timelines, FSW being the real one, bomb sinking the island or not, about the pasts etc.. It’s ok though, in LESS than two weeks I hope to understand it.

    Although I haven’t been active lately…compared to others I’ve never been very active, at least for two weeks I’m not done checking up this site and reading and commenting stuff.. BUT, I thank you now for the @$#(* great game you’ve let me read and think about, and sometimes also let me play with myself…but I’m jealous at your ability of reading the show and almost every detail of it. The fun of rewatching the series after the finale will be for me to discover the hints, clues, patterns and what not…and your theories are and will be very helpful with that. So, superb job and thanks alot!

  9. And by the way, brilliant point about Jack ALMOST crying.. I can hardly believe the writers put that symbolism to it on purpose…but if you can see the symbolism (Jack’s need to absorb all the pain to get where he’s going), the writers probably really did that on purpose..

  10. Andre, been a blast…Ill still be around, just no more BIG theories…and thank you again for your comments, thoughts, and theories over the years…

  11. BrotherGib…I have to tell you…Im with you on not knowing what to believe…they make it very difficult on us, dont they?

    I definitely think Juliet blowing Jugghead either stopped the island from sinking…or sunk it…regardless…I think whatever it was, it was supposed to happen opposite of what occurred, still allowing change to rear its ugly head…

    The reason I think it didnt sink is because of the Swan, The purge, and Amy…if it didnt sink yet, and it still will…then we have to go back to see it happen…

    I think there is ALOT of story left to tell in the short time, and I think they will st some point address these issues…

    Good comments, I fully understand the rebuttal for the simple fact that I have said some of those things myself and have not fully discounted them…

  12. Bdiddy…wow…I would apologize for boring you…but I really dont care anymore.

    If you think this is bad, you may want to stay away from anything else I have ever written here, and several other theorists posts…

    The next real theory I write will have you in mind…I promise… Ill try and dumb it down to a few words to keep your attention.

    Keep a look out for that next one…it will be dedicated to you…

  13. Eko…PRECISELY!!!

    Here is a thinker for you, I mentioned this somewhere else before…

    If Deus ex Machina proves true…and GOD is from the MACHINE…would that not only make them ONE entity…but make the “man of science” and “man of faith” technically believing in the same thing…making their dispute quite petty in the long run?

    Maybe that is the “long con” of the entire show…that all the debate about science vs faith, and free will of god vs the fate of the science will all be a fairly trivial when we learn that the machine… is… god as we know it?

  14. Have no fear doublewide…anyone can hate away at this point…over the next two weeks colors will come out, and it will be decided if what has been said is true or not…

    I HAD to write something long and ridiculous, and as Eko reminded me not long ago, I got a little lazy with short posts that people can simply read through without straining their eyes, and thinking too much…

    I fully get what you say about Jack and Christian in the FSW…which is why I dont think it will happen again until Jack sees him on island, causing his off island self to be connected with his on island self…

    Jack and Kate may not be better TV than SKATE…but that doesnt mean its right…
    I think you are spot on with your call of the connection between the two.
    I know Sawyer and kate have their little off island “cop and robber” role playing game going on right now…but I call red herring, nad as we both say…Jack and Kate are meant to be…

    It would be fun to learn that Kate is pregnant in the FSW, and it is some “immaculate” like conception spawning from her and Jack hooking up before returning to the island on Ajira.

    You said…

    “I do not think we will see DHARMA fully explained, I don’t think we’ll see Walt fully explained, I don’t think we’ll see Adam/Eve fully explained, I don’t think Valenzetti will be explained, I don’t think Radzinsky will be fully explained.”

    I have to disagree with everything except possibly Valenzetti.

    I 100% believe Dharma will be explained…it would be a HUGE disappointment to me if not,
    from both the perspective of a theorist and audience member.

    Walt I think may end up being Abbadon…or even just Walt, but I do think we will learn more about him.

    Someone posted a few weeks ago about the boy in the woods with the bloody hands actually being the same actor.
    One seemed much younger than the other, but after looking for myself, low and behold its true…how fun would it be if they actually planned it and filmed the scene with the younger looking boy a few years prior knowing what was going on…?

    Even more fun…what if they did it with Walt too…? Probably not, but I do think there will be some kind of ending to his story…

    I definitely think Adam and Eve will be given away…that would be a CRUEL, CRUEL, CRUEL thing to not tell us about…and although Sawyer and Kate are still alive, as Jack and Kate as well…I STILL think…no…I belive it will be Rose and Bernard…”Only Fools Are Enslaved by time and space”…

    Radzinsky would go along with my thoughts on travelling back and seeing the swan get built…he would be a HUGE part of that…

    Valenzetti…you may have one there.
    But I feel that if Hanso gets brought into this, than Valenzetti will too.

    I mention above how similar Widmore/Faraday seem to Hanso/DeGroot…well if Jacob and his numbers, possibly even being the economist doesnt scream “Valenzetti”…I dont know what does…remember I said that…

    What I do agree with is your last paragraph about really anything being possible tonight…for once…maybe the first time…I am really looking for a HUGE answer to a Lost question…and I really hope they deliver…

    Doublewide…thanks again for the comments.

    Its funny, we dont always agree on everything, but for whatever reason I can have a good conversation/debate with you and neither get upset…

    Glad you liked this, somewhat glad you dont agree fully…
    Im sketchy on this myself, but its something I always thought would happen…and there doesnt seem to be a better time to throw it out there again…

    Good comments, and Im excited to see tonights episode…

  15. AES, another great point you make (#14). I can’t seem to tie the science vs faith or god vs machine thing to where the end of the show is heading though…

  16. Chief…all I can say is thanks…

    I really tried to tie them all in, and the one person I left out was Kate…

    Honestly…I could take the knowledge we have of her and come up with anything from her being the candidate to her being killed in a useless fashion…

    The truth is, I really wanted to incorporate an idea regarding her and MIB…and Aaron if its true…but it seems kind of nuts…

    This only works if MIB is Aaron…

    What if when MIB was telling Kate about his crazy mother…and everyone started to think he could be Aaron talking about Caire…

    It was Aaron…but he was talking about KATE!

    SHE was his “crazy mother” off island who left to bring back his “real mother”…
    That actually makes more sense than if its Claire he was referring to, no?

  17. Chief, do you know it actually makes me more angry than anything that Widmore knows info that we dont?

    I dont know why it bothers me so, but it does…
    I really cannot see him ending up anything other than evil.
    Maybe the Losties travelling to the past was what made him evil in the long run…predestination…

    I really think that the smoke is going to be a something that is completely dependent on the islands electromagnetic properties…not to say the person he is at the time is dependent…just the smoke itself.

    I really think MIB is going to end up being a “created” being, given answers and secrets that we could only dream of.
    NO IDEA for sure how or why…and I agree that it must be uncovered…

    Good thoughts on what Radzinski saw…very interesting perspective.

    John to Eko, “I saw a bright light, and it was beautiful”
    Eko, “That is not what I saw”

    This will probably be my last theory, but not last post…

    I just dont want to be that person the day before the last episode adapting and changing everything…Ive done enough of that already.

    By saying that Jacob could be the bad guy, it really takes away from what I truly believe the show is about…which is having hope and faith.
    At the same time, MIB seems to make a good point about feeling sorry or disappointed by people, in my eye due to their blind following…something that drives me FAR from real world organized religion…

    But to not be able to have faith in anything seems a bit harsh, and very UN-Disney like…

    Which is why I continue if nothing else to have faith in John Locke…and if Im wrong, and John is just some stupid guy that believed to much in himself, then I sincerely missed the moral of the story…

    hell…at least when I rewatch I will be able to pretend at least up until the last three episodes, if not further.

    Thanks for the comments and compliments Chief.

    Im glad you showed up here and hung around…

    It took a few comments to get through your sarcasm upon arrival lol, and although you seem to be disappointed sometimes in the quality this year…I believe in the end everything is going to make sense…and all the pointless dragging episodes will be much more fun the second time around for everyone, as they were the first time around for me…

    BTW…Im still waiting for a hot plumber lady to enter the room…
    never wanted to see plumbers crack so bad…

  18. That would be crazy, and that makes me think of a quote (I believe it was by Nietzsche) that was something like: Did god create man, or did man create god? Perhaps there is something futuristic going on, where man creates a “god” machine that judges people.

    Man is stuck in an existential crisis with two sides: one argues that we are inherently good and the other is that we are evil, not only bad for ourselves but for other forms of life as well and need to be eliminated. The island is a way of playing out this argument to see if we are worthy of existence or not.

    Crazy. You always get me thinking AES

  19. @AES, I hope you are right, I want all the answers as well, but I’m preparing myself for some things to be left unanswered. The Bones of Nadler thing, if true, would make sense to me and be a fitting answer for Adam and Eve and for Rose and Bernard’s story.

    I love all the different ideas and I don’t pretend to know what’s going to happen so I’m open to all ideas (I think the meteor idea was mine by the way and chief will back me up 😉 ) and I think that’s why we can have good “arguements” about theories because we both are open to ideas and not bored easily, haha.

  20. Stone…you can play with yourself in two weeks…pay attention for now, lol…

    On Jack crying, it really struck me as great acting and storytelling the way he ran to the ocean.

    I watched the season one over the last two days, episodes one through four, and several times it shows Jack sitting at the ocean staring out (John too).

    I think that when John realized where they were last season upon seeing the hatch light, it made him realize that everything he had gone through was what led them to where they were. Sawyer asks him why he didnt change things…
    Later, Jack asks Sawyer almost the same question Sawyer asked John about doing things differently when James told him about the year and his parents being killed.

    James said “whats done is done”…it makes sense, but you have to ask if what was done…was supposed to have been done at this point.

    As I said above, people can deny change, but we are now aware that two separate timelines exist…most likely a reaction of someone doing something differently…

    On science vs faith…I have always believed it is a more spiritual show than a scientific show. And although I try to lead the way for there to be room for BOTH at the end of LOST…its hard for me to not bump up faith over science…even if just one notch.

    “The devil” and “god” could very well be MIB/Jacob who people have misconstrued into these positions through time travel and crossing into other lives. And as I feel much of organized religion is misconstrued by the word of man…Lost may be no different when it comes to Jacob and MIB, and what the others have been saying the whole time.

    whoever plays the role of “god”, be it Jacob, MIb, or even the freakin island…will never go away…unless Lost proves god wrong…that would be fun…

    Stone, sorry no solid answers on religion and science, just maybe that one will very much explain the other in terms of “how” they are able to do what they do in the world we know…

    I always appreciate your questions and comments. Your a very positive person here, and although sometimes I can almost see you shaking your head trying to figure out what the hell I am talking about while you are reading my posts, I do thank you as always for the kind words.

  21. Lol, glad I noticed that awkward line myself.

    I loved that cry-scene like everyone else did and Jack did a great job indeed, like he’s done the whole season imo.

    By the way, unlike you I think Jack will be the ultimate candidate in the end. Like you say, he’s been through such a journey from man of science / arrogant @$#% to man of faith / hero… Wouldn’t it be a bit of a waste if John Locke will be the one candidate? He’s been a believing man of faith from the beginning of the show…and Jack’s change of character is THE reason I think he will be the one. The only (major) issue with that though is that I have no idea what Locke’s role will turn out to be, cause it’s obvious FSW Locke isn’t done yet.

  22. AES, don’t say machine=island, makes me think Island is spaceship! kiddin, kiddin

    Oh man, this is such a great read, I wanted so badly to read it at work, but I knew i would get nothing at work done if i did..I’m only halfway through now, and I’m going to read your other theories that you provided links for..I’ll comment later with something semi-intelligent to say!

  23. Doublewide, the first theory I posted a link for was a small scale Amy, Ethans Mom…becomes Amelia, the woman from Juliets house and the others tea party…which would explain…somehow why her and Paul were out with the others while she was pregnant…although obviously in this theory I take the ‘why’ another direction…but that doesnt make me think the idea is true any less.

    By this occurring somewhere in the last three episodes, it could lead to many of my other thoughts…or themes as you put it happening as well…starting with change, and ending (with) the loop theory still a possible outcome to what is going on…

  24. stone…I KNOW!

    I have a hard time saying…and believing that Jack wont be the candidate…but I think that if Helen does indeed die…it would give Locke reason to sacrifice himself instead of allowing Jack to do it…

    …this is of course all based on the thought that John could possibly ‘come through’ MIB…which in no way have they actually led us to believe that is going to happen…its just a theory itself.

    Good call on Jack…wouldnt drop my jaw if he does play the part…

  25. Bobt…dont say spaceship…it will make me think its a spaceship…
    ;]

    I hope you enjoy it all…like I said, the other theories are good, and a lot is said in the comments…but they are long…

    damn…now I have to worry that three theories live up to something…
    I really hope I dont waste your time and you find them insightful…

    They are really the point when I started allowing the thought that change is NOT possible, and in the process of asking someone to convince me further…actually furthered my own thoughts that change IS going to happen…or is happening…

  26. I could see juliet shooting sawyer, or hitting Kate in the other shoulder…how many times does kate have to get shot for her to take her shirt off? or use up the whole shirt tying off bleeding wounds..I hope we find out.
