Ding Dong…

…The witch is dead…
At least the Mother of Jacob and MIB…

And since she is dead, I will ask a few questions that hopefully doesnt lead to more question…(trying to keep straight face)…

-Why is it that MIB cant change forms after Jacob is dead?

-When MIB killed her…I swear I thought I heard her say “thank you”…could he have sent her home(FSW)?

-Ok…I get that Claudia doesnt know she is pregnant with twins…there are no sonograms in that time…so….

HOW DID SHE KNOW IT WOULD BE A BOY?!?!?!

She had the name Jacob all ready to go, yet was surprised by MIB…did light and dark get split upon entering the island?

-Lastly, and possibly most important…with so much focus on it prior to this…

WHERE THE HELL WAS THE STATUE?!?!?!?!

Sooo…wtf is going on…?

  1. I don’t have an answer for the first question, but the other two, on the ‘mum’ saying thank you, I took that to be that she had lived as the protector for a really long time and like Jacob and Richard , couldn’t kill herself so she was grateful to MIB for releasing her. I think even as children she knew that Jacob would be the next protector and MIB was he one with the temperament to kill her when the time was right.
    On the second one, as a mother you’d have a boys name and a girls name ready if you didn’t know what youwere having so I don’t think it’s too odd that she knew what to call Jacob and not the second one.

  2. On the whole not killing herself thought…I thought that too…but then why not just let the “bad” people on the other side of the island do it? There just seems to be something off, with her and the whole other group of people being killed…

    Kind of same thing for the second one…thought the same thing…just seems like there should be more to it in regards to the name…
    So many clues, and this was just an odd thing to do…it really seemed like she expected a boy.
    Maybe I should heed my own advoce in regards to asking question…

    Seriously though…where the hell is the statue…?

  3. Having a kid on the way myself and my wife and I are going to keep it a surprise I can tell you that we have both a boy and a girl’s name picked out and I truly believe that when the baby comes I’ll be able to immediately put a name w/ a face.

    A.E.S. I hate to question you b/c I respect all you write but she could of very easily just had 2 names picked out.

  4. she clearly said thank you right before dying. she whispered something else right after he stabbed her and I think it was a name – I’ve been saying I think she said Jose.. 😉

    I believe we were seeing the distant past and the statue had not been built yet, that is probably coming next while smokie brings people to finish the well. (yes, smokie bringing people to the Island)

  5. Agreeing with stldynamite on the names issue. My wife and I are going to be starting a family soon and we have already chosen both a boys and a girls name ready to go.

    The Statue? Maybe it was built after the time period we see. Maybe it’s in a location that nobody went to in that episode. Just because we weren’t shown everything doesn’t mean there were errors or inconsistencies, it just means they focused on other issues or whatever. We could sit around and say the same thing about the Temple and the Lighthouse and the stone “bench” that Smokey sat on in “Ab Aeterno”, but why? They don’t have to explain every detail all the time. I think sometimes we expect too much, they really only have 43 minutes a week.

  6. AES, Just a wild guess on Claudia….call it a ‘woman’s intuition’. She suspected she was carrying a boy. Women seem to have a sense of these things.

  7. 1) Can’t change if the body of the person he inhabit is seen, or maybe if seen by MIB in the body. Ilana seemed determined to show the body to whoever was in the cabin and then marched over to the statue.

    2) Agree. Thank you was because she was released via the magic daggar of death. Note: MIB and Jacob aged up to this point then kinda’ stopped.

    3-4) Again, concur. She had girl/boy names and didn’t have time to look at BIB long enough to come up with another name AND the statue hasn’t been made yet.

  8. 1) NO IDEA

    2) SINCE IT WAS BRO THAT CREATED THE IDEA OF THE WHEEL, COULD IT BE THAT MOTHER HAD NO IDEA HOW TO MOVE THE ISLAND, AND MORE IMPORTANT, HOW TO LEAVE? WAS SHE JUST THERE PROTECTING AND AFTER ???? YEARS OF NOT SUCCIDING IN FINDING A REPLACEMENT, (THEY ALWAYS COME FIGHT ETC), SHE BROUGHT A CANDIDATE UNBORN, TO MANIPULATE FROM THE START? I THINK THAT THE ONLY WAY SHE KNEW HOW TO LEAVE, IS TO BE KILLED BE THE NEXT CANDIDATE IN LINE.

    3)PROBABLY NOT BUILDED YET. IS MOTHER THE FIRST PROTECTOR EVER?

  9. stldynamite…no disrespect at all…

    if Im wrong about something, I would rather realize it than harp on it…I just usually try and think it through pretty well first…

    I get that idea…I do.

    I look at it this way. Claire didnt know what she was having, Danielle didnt know what she was having, they both had their children taken away as well…they both chose names that, intentional or not, could be used either way, male or female.

    I know its, crazy.
    She could have easily had two names picked out, and Im reading further into it, as I usually do.

    On the statue, heres the thing…if its already built, and they are not there…why does Jacob occupy it later?

    When MIB goes into the light, does Jacob take over his people possibly?

    I cant imagine Jacob building it himself…
    So if it wasnt built yet…who built it, and why?

  10. Im not at all calling this an inconsistency…

    Im truly questioning why they always show it when they show that far back in time, but it wasnt here.

    It not being built yet makes perfect sense to me…and was really the answer I was looking for.
