From the very first season we are introduced to “special” people. The other’s kidnap Walt because they believe that he is special. John Locke believes that he himself is special. Jacob’s “mother” tells him that he is special. So what exactly does it mean to be “special”.

I believe that being “special” means that you are a likely candidate to be Jacob’s successor. People that are on Jacob’s list are considered special for this reason. Perhaps, special people also have some sort of supernatural powers. We are told (in S2 or 3) that “Jack wasn’t even on Jacob’s list”. I believe that Jacob never wanted Jack to be his successor. He just wanted Jack to believe that he was special so that he would replace the cork in the Source (therefore saving the world) and then pass on protectorship to Hurley (who truly is special).

But I would love to hear your ideas!… What exactly made Walt so “special”? Was Locke actually special, or was he just conned into thinking he was special by the Man in Black? Who else was special? Were all the candidate’s special?

Okay, I think most of us realised that the writers didn’t have complex explanation for most of the mysteries. The island was a cork, the whispers were ghosts, the number were numbers, etc, etc. So thinking about a simple explanation to the shoes mystery, I came to this conclusion.

MIB was manipulating Ben and the others, right? OK, so smokey wanted Locke’s body back to the island for using his body. Ben said that Jack should put his dad’s shoes in Locke’s feet because… that was the instructions MIB indirectly gave to Ben. Why? Simple solution: MIB wanted to use confortable shoes when he used Locke’s body. Remember he has been 2000 years in the island and never tried modern shoes. That was an excellent oportunity for that! After all MIB liked to walk because it made him remember when he was completely human. What a great chance to obtain a new body from the leader of the others and a fancy pair of shoes!

Smoke Monster is trying to get back to the Source. He’s not really MiB. He was just using that form to communicate with Jacob and at some point got stuck in his present form the same way the current manifestation is stuck in Locke’s body. Similarly, as MiB was to inherit the Island but turned away and left Jacob as the only option, Locke was to inherit the Island only to lose his way and leave Jack as the next option. Chances are Jack will find his way to the Source by accident and Smokey will try and head back down there…or possibly find someone to take the plunge and replace him.

Side note: Since Jacob’s name is similar to Jack, I’m thinking MiB’s real name was something close to John, like Jonah or something. Just a thought…

Soo, how good was the latest episode ayy?!

Anyway.. I was re-watching the candidate and noticed that Locke took the watch from the dead guy before he enters the plane. We know he later used this watch as a countdown timer on the bomb but why did he take the watch in the first place? Its as if he knew exactly what he was doing.. Or is there some logical explanation to this?

What are your thoughts?

Ok im pretty certain this has been brought up before.. Actually, I have a feeling I’ve brought this up before.. anyway.

In season 5, Ben, Locke (yes im calling him locke now) and Richard are in the jungle. Locke tells Richard to tell a time-flashing John that he needs to die etc.. Richard then gives real John a compass saying next time you see me i wont recognise you. How did Richard know this? Locke didnt tell him to do it.. Maybe he remembered meeting him in the 50’s but how would Richard know which time to give it to real John.  It all seems a bit strange..

They share one thing in common: they both want to kill Locke – one in the original timeline and one in the alternate one.

So maybe Cooper did all those bad things to Locke for the same reasons that Desmond is doing them in the alt timeline?

I’m not sure if I missed something, but are we supposed to understand how she recognized Locke while being wheeled into the hospital? Has there been something in the season so far where she has seen him in the ATL? or should we be assuming that she had a near death consciousness flash and might have seen him as the bad guy on the island?

The key to the series was Season Five’s 16th episode, The Incident. This is how the show is going to end. Just like MIB can be numerous people (MIB, Locke, etc.) so can Jacob. So at the end of the series, I am unsure of how they will exactly get there, it is going to be new Jacob portrayed as Jack and new MIB portrayed as Locke. The two will be sitting on the beach just like in the episode, The Incident, and a new boat, plane, train or taxi filled with new people will be on their way to the island to start the process all over again.

As usual, I apologize if anyone has already written this theory.  I’d actually be surprised if this wasn’t already suggested.  If so, hopefully what I say will be seen as supporting it, not competing with it.

I think John Locke died upon impact of the 815 crash and was taken over by the smoke monster.  This has some holes, but I’ve come up with some ideas to account for a lot of them.  One of the key concepts here is that when the smoke monster takes over a body, some of the personality, memories, etc. of the person live on, and over time the smoke monster becomes less himself, and more like the person whose body he used.  That’s why this season we saw Flocke say, “Don’t tell me what I can’t do”…because he’s already taking on some of the traits of Locke.  This is also why Locke seemed so confident in season 1 and by season 4 he was more like the John Locke that worked at the box company.

First, here are some reasons why it makes sense:

I have been re-watching seasons 1 and 2, and it seems like he knows too much about the island to begin with and has some sort of agenda.  He can do things like predict when it is going to rain.  When he initially fails to get in the hatch he says, “This isn’t how it’s supposed to happen.”  At the time, I just attributed this to some crazy man who thinks he has some sort of ‘destiny’ to be on the island.  But what if he was working toward a goal the whole time?  “You have no idea what I went through to get here.”

John Locke was no longer paralyzed after the crash.  I initially attributed this to the island being “a place where miracles happen.”  Now I think he was not paralyzed because he was the smoke monster.

The smoke monster is for some reason now stuck in the form of John Locke.  Perhaps this is because once the smoke monster possesses someone for the second time, it can no longer change into another form.

Now for the holes:

He was already off the island, why didn’t he just stay there?  When someone uses the donkey wheel to get off the island, they become themself when they arrive back in the real world.  The smoke monster can’t travel off island via donkey wheel.

Why did he do so much to prevent them from getting off the island in the first place?  Jacob had to die and he needed things to do according to plan in order to make that happen.

Didn’t the smoke monster grab him once and try to pull him in a hole?  Yes, and he begged Jack to let him go.  A pretty weird request if he was actually worried about dying.  I think the smoke monster can be part smoke / part person as the long as they are connected.  This is why the smoke monster was able to appear to grab Richard’s wife on the Black Rock.  His wife was the smoke monster, but the smoke monster can look like he is attacking someone that he is taking the form of.

Tell me what you think.

This is my big theory. It will contain everything I believe about LOST so far. Based on last night’s episode, I think this will be good.

Background Information
The Island – The Island itself is an amazing place. It holds down an immense store of evil, preventing it from unleasing Hell on earth and destroying the good in everyone. This evil is burried under the Island, and is held back by two massive stores of energy. The Island moves and hides to prevent anyone from unleashing the evil upon an unsuspecting world.
The Protector – The Protector of the Island has one job: make sure the evil stays on the Island. To do this, he has special powers, such as natural immortality (I use this term to distinguish it from absolute immortality. Natural immortality prevents a natural death, while absolute immortality prevents both natural and man-caused death), healing, the ability to influence people’s thoughts, and the Touch are all I’m sure of.
The Touch – What is the Touch? The Touch is the ability of the Protector to gift others to aid in protecting the Island. This gift can come in different forms, depending on the person it is given to and the person giving it.
The Story of Jacob and Flocke
Jacob is the son of a previous Protector, but not the oldest. His older brother, Flocke, was to become the next Protector. (Alt. version: Jacob is the Protector’s nephew, and Flocke is the Protector’s son) His mother, however, distrusted Flocke. She thought that he shouldn’t become the next Protector, and set out to give that title to Jacob (either her younger son or nephew). She tricked Jacob and Flocke into going to play down by the Frozen Donkey Wheel (it was made ages before as a “faucet” for one of the energy pockets). Not knowing that is was connected to one of the energy pockets trapping the evil, Flocke turned it. This let out an enormous amount of energy, giving the Island its special properties, but also letting out the evil from beneath the Island.
This evil came out in the form of black smoke, and killed Flocke. With Flocke dead, his mother quickly pushed for Jacob to become the next Protector. The title was granted, and Jacob inherited his powers. Unfortunately, they soon found that Flocke had returned. The evil had revived Flocke’s body and taken it. The new, evil Flocke awoke to find that his “crazy” mother had helped set up his brother/cousin as the new Protector. This made him furious. He turned into the Smoke Monster and killed everyone but Jacob. Because Jacob was the Protector, Flocke was not allowed to kill him. In Flocke’s eyes, Jacob had something to do with the scheme his mother has devised, and thus he felt betrayed. The evil in him gave him a more important resolve, though, and that was to escape the Island and corrupt the world.
Jacob quickly discovered what had happened, and decided to hold Flocke on the Island. When he realized the plot made by Flocke’s mother, he was appalled. Unfortunately, he couldn’t give the title back to Flocke, him being evil. From that point on, Jacob and Flocke were locked in a strong disagreement. Flocke, being evil itself, felt that all man was inherently evil and would ultimately live a life of sin. I want to clarify here that the belief isn’t evil, and doesn’t make one evil. However, it is like the liar’s suspicion. If one lies a lot, he distrusts everyone. In the same way, if one is evil, he feels that others are also evil. Jacob believed that, even though man did wrong, he was ultimately capable of rising above and being good. This caused Jacob to begin bringing men to the Island so as to prove man’s goodness, possibly holding Flocke back and decreasing his power. Finally, we reach the season five finale scene. The Black Rock lands, and Flocke’s escape plan begins.
The First Candidate
When Richard comes to the Island, Flocke believes he has found a loophole. He attempts to manipulate Richard into killing Jacob, which fails. At this point, Jacob realizes that he can’t stop Flocke forever. He decided he needs to be ready in case he dies. By offering Richard the job and by Touching (not just touching, such as the fight, but the Touch after Richard’s request) him, he nominated Richard as the first candidate to replace him.
Flocke’s Plan
Later, Flocke’s form became too old. Having died, it wasn’t exactly in shape to live forever. Thus, he decided to find a new form. Having gained his body-cloning powers by being the Smoke Monster, he looked for a new body. He tried many, such as some from the Black Rock and eventually DHARMA, he was not satisfied. He wanted one he knew he could use to make his loophole. Finally, he saw Locke. Locke had just flashed when Flocke saw him. He began following, and took the form of a dead Other to watch. Eventually, he ssaw Locke’s conversation with Richard, telling him to see him once he’s born. Flocke decided that Locke was his target. So he begins scheming. Jacob also saw Locke, but took little interest.
The Losties
In 1974, Jacob found the time-travelling Losties in DHARMA. He realized at that moment that something was going on. He knew that the FDW would be pushed one day, and that the only person who could be behind such a thing would be Flocke. Pushing the FDW again would allow Flocke to grow to full strength, dispel some of the Island’s ability to protect itself, and ultimately allow the death of Jacob. Jacob left the Island and began Touching people, based on their situation. In ’77, he Touched some more people.
Before I go to 2004, let me speak on DHARMA. They found the Island by accident in a sub in the 1950s, and quickly discovered its unique properties. The two pockets of energy intrigued them, and they built the Orchid and Swan to study them. Early on, they turned the FDW, and discovered the Island’s time-travelling abilities. Unfortunately, this awakened the at-this-time inactive Flocke, and thus they had to construct the sonic fence. After the Incident, the other energy pocket was unleashed, allowing Flocke free reign on the Island until the button was created. The blockage of energy with the button prevented Flocke from ever becoming too powerful at one time.
In 2004, Desmond failed to push the button. This signalled Flocke that it was time for him to manipulate. Jacob knew his time was short when Desmond first arrived (he realized that Desmond was already important because of his relationship with Charles Whidmore), and thus used him to bring Ocean 815. He quickly began working to narrow down his replacement. As Jacob worked, Flocke found Christian’s coffin. He destroyed Christian’s body and began using his form to manipulate the Losties. After Desmond turned the fail-safe key, all of the energy restricting Flocke dissipated. With no more restrictions on his power, the only thing getting in the way for him was the rule (this rule was established in the Island’s beginning): he couldn’t kill Jacob. Using his newfound power, he eventually made Ben and Locke turn the FDW, which eventually gave Flocke his new body as Locke.
So, now, Jacob works from beyond the grave to quickly get himself replaced and stop Flocke from leaving the Island. If Flocke does leave the Island, the Island itself will fall into destruction and essentially become Hell itself, while the rest of the world becomes infected by the evil from Flocke.
Answers to Important Questions
Wharfrat77 asked some good questions for this theory, and here are the answers:
“Who was in charge of the others during the Purge? MIB or Jacob” – In this theory, the Purge was the work of Flocke. He’d already seen Locke and was plotting his loophole, but realized that he couldn’t do everything with DHARMA and without Ben. To achieve this, he made sure Ben “wound up” inspecting the Tempest, where he would come begin plotting to kill DHARMA and join the others.
“if MIB, How did he trick the others to follow him? When did they start following him?” – All he needed was Ben. By tricking Ben, he got Ben to trick the Others.
“Where is Jacob at the time?” – Jacob was off-island Touching candidates.
“Did he bring DHARMA to the island?” – Jacob brought DHARMA to the Island in hopes of using them to permanently secure Flocke, but instead, Flocke tricked them into turning the FDW.

I have a quick question, remember when Richard goes to see a very young Locke and Locke chooses the knife (I guess all his life he has desperately tried to be the Hunter), is that the same knife that MIB gives to Ben to stab Jacob? And did anyone notice that he picked up the knife, wiped off the blood on a piece of Jacob’s tapestry and put said piece of tapestry it in his pocket? What could that mean?
This is actually pulled from one of my theories, here’s the link

A Good Book for Illumination of Lost

if you would like to know the question in it’s full contexual meaning (but it really isnt that important, unless you are just bored/curious and wasting time until Lost comes on).

Something recently occured to me. In my own book I’m plotting (Living Dead, the name will change later), there is a place called the Spring. The Spring is a large, undeground pool filled with what they refer to as living water. It is the physical manifestation of the essence of life. Due to its nature, it has many healing properties, depending on the dosage and delivery. In the case of the peope in Living Dead, they use it cause dead people to come back invincible to anything but a necessarily fatal wound to the heart, lungs, or brain. This living water can do anything from heal a cut to make one immortal. On the bank of the Spring itself, death cannot occur. Anyway, the water has this power because it was originally the source of water for the Garden of Eden. After the Flood, its location was lost.
So, what does this have to do with LOST? The healing pool. See, the living water’s enemy was spilt blood. It diluted the power of the water. In LOST, the healing pool could ressurect or save people, but at a price. It would change who they are (as with Ben). So, let’s assume that Jacob is the power of this water. After all, Richard is ageless due to Jacob’s touch, and others have been saved by him. It stands to reason that Jacob’s touch complements life. Since water is essentially the essence of life scientifically, it seems Jacob-blessed water could have supernatural life properties, such as that of the living water in Living Dead.
If the water in the Temple was like the living water, then blood would affect its healing power. Since most of the healings involve bloody people, this would cause the adverse effects such as Ben’s change, and would also explain the loss of power after Jacob’s death. If you look, you’ll notice that the “dirty” water actually looks bloody. Say the Jacob-blessed water “bleeds” upon its source of power dying. The corruption of the water would fail to revive Sayid, but allow Flocke’s power to infect him.
This theory is kind of, IDK, unnecessary, but I felt like mentioning it. Tell me what you think.

On another not, the LOST Facebook page posted this today, “The countdown to the end continues – We have 9 new episodes until the series finale! Tonight at 9|8c on ABC, Flocke tasks Sawyer with some “Recon” and you’ll see a favorite return — who is she and what brings her back into the picture?” Comments?

My opinions on what the alt is have been changing recently, especially after the last episode.
I know this isn’t an original idea, but something about the last episode struck me.

In the flash sideways we saw Ben discussing the principals incompetency with Arzt, when Ben suddenly gets the idea to take the principals job. I say suddenly, he actually gets the idea from who else but old Locke who interrupts their convo, and says, “maybe its time for a change”.
As we saw later, Ben made the right choice which involved not overthrowing the principal, but i just thought it was odd that it was Locke who put the idea in his head.

I don’t know how exactly, but could it be possible that some of the character interactions we are seeing are not who/what we think they are? Could MIB be manipulating people in the outside world in the alt?
Some people mentioned Helens black nail polish in Lockes flash sideways, and i never really noticed, but maybe its a hint.
I’m starting to get a vague notion that the ‘alt’ has alot more to do with MIB than it appears, and may not not be all that real. I’m even getting the feeling that the flash sideways we are seeing are actually seperate from eachother, like a synthesized reality for each character, thats being controlled by MIB.
Like you, i also have no idea what i’m talking about, and i agree this doesn’t really make sense, but please don’t hit me. I just wanted to see what peoples opinions are now on MIBs involvement (if any), with the Alt timeline. I guess we’ll find out very soon, 9 episodes to go!

Hello, i was thinking, when julliet banged the bomb and blew up the island…(i’m guessing thats what created the alter, line). the plane made it back safely. Well… with Sayid killing the dude that shot alex in the head, does that mean alex is alive somewhere? And also can and will the two different realitys affect each other being 3 years apart?, jack and daivd, locke and peggy-in 2004. jack getting beat down by sawyer- 2007…..

I don’t think that Jack is the Shepard that the candidate list refers to. I think it is Christian. But why isn’t his name crossed out?He is after all, for all intent and purposes, dead. He has work to do. For whom and why is yet to be seen. But I have an strange feeling that his entity is needed on the island for a few reason, the most obvious being Jack, Claire and Aaron. Think about the following things:
1. Jack follows his image and finds the clean water which solidifies his role as leader of the Losties.
2. He seduces Claire to MIB’s side and in the process, Claire is driven crazy by the grief of losing Aaron and that fuels her grudge against the Others further more aligning her with MIB.
3. Aaron is doomed to be ‘raised by another’ because of Claire’s abandonment.
4. Everybody assumes MIB/Smokey can appear to a person as the something that the person loves the most, then why did he appear to John Locke as Christian is Smokey really does = Christian? To start a catalyst to get the Oceanic 6 back to the island (tell my son I said hello), as Ben said if you got Jack, then you got all of them (well, almost all).

Also a quick side note:
I believe that the lighthouse is MIB’s. I just think that because the candidates names are written in black and in the cave the names are written in white, sometimes the answer really is right in front of you and you are too blind to see.

This past week alot of things in Losts story are becoming clearer to me and pieces of the puzzle are coming together. I could be wrong, but thats why they’re theories right?

Anyway, this stems from another theory of mine on the purpose of the flash sideways, anyone who wants to read that, go here…

The REAL purpose of the flash sideways.

To me its never made sense that what happened in the incident would cause the creation of an alternate timeline where the island had sunk, i think thats what the writers wanted us to think, and have been dropping misleading hints, but i wasn’t buying it. Then i realised, wouldn’t it make ALOT more sense that the OPPOSITE was true? Bare with me here…

Juliette detonating that bomb SAVED the island from sinking! the alternate timeline is a reality where the losties never came to the island, and in turn never went back to 1977, interrupted the drilling and let off Jughead, and THIS is why the island in that timeline is underwater. How would the island sink from the explosion, if in this alt scenario the losties have never been there to detonate it? That would be way to confusing to try and explain, and is a paradox.

I propose that in the ALT, Dharma proceeded to drill into the pocket of ‘energy’ without Jack and co’s interference, releasing some of the islands ‘magical magicness’ as i like to call it, and its this that caused the island to ‘sink’. In the timeline we’ve previously been seeing, the explosion of the bomb neutralized this energy, and prevented the island from sinking. With the powerful energy neutralized, Dharma built the hatch over it, and its use was to keep the energy at bay by pressing that button every 108 minutes, one day Desmond forgot to press the button and Oceanic 815 crashed etc etc. Whatever happened, happened right?

Think back to what happened in the incident, It was pretty clear that if Dharma had continued what they were doing that day, the outcome would’ve been terrible. Thankfully, the losties did the exact opposite of what they were trying to and saved the island, but instead of stopping the hatch being built, they helped make it possible.

I believe its likely that both timelines have always existed, OR more likely the alternate timeline we’re seeing now is actually the ORIGINAL timeline before the one we’ve been seeing seasons 1-5 and isn’t running alongside it. I remember the producers said in a podcast that they wouldn’t use the term ‘parallel’ timeline to describe it, but they freely use the term ‘alternate’ timeline, this to me seems like a little hint.

I think this all makes alot of sense, and clears up some of the stuff i had previously found a little confusing. Its also not to convoluted to understand, and you don’t need to bring up Quantum Physics to explain it. I don’t know if this has been discussed before, but for me it was a lightbulb over the head moment. The alt is a reality where all the potentially world saving actions the losties have taken never occured, so the apocalyptic event everyone is trying to prevent will happen there, and we will see it (Maybe its this ‘event’ that hurls the universe back in time again). Its gonna be HELLA COOL! Let me know your thoughts.

On another note, i think we’re going to find out that Dharma/Hanso have been behind this whole time and space changing experiment to save the world and possibly the universe, as i have done for a while, but thats for another theory as its just speculation.

So far from what we’ve seen in the flash sideways, everything seems to be going quite well for everyone (apart from Kate). Some have speculated that the flash sideways could actually be the ENDING of the show, after this war is over and the losties get to turn back time and change what happened and live happily ever after.
But i think the writers are lulling us into a false sense of security.
I think the writers are using a very clever plot device, which will confirm just how high the stakes really are.
The losties have constantly been told how important it is that they are on the island, and how important the island is itself.
The losties planned to use that bomb to change the past so they never came to the island, and i think this flash sideways is showing us a world where they didn’t, but its not as sweet as it seems.

I think in this flash sideways we’re going to see what would/would’ve happened if the islands magical magicness didn’t exist (whether its because of the bomb, or i suspect something else) and the losties never came to the island, and i think its going to end in catastrophe. Whatever the island is, i believe it is extremely important in ways we have yet to find out, and i suspect in a world where its power ceases to exist, and the events we have seen didn’t play out, something very very bad is going to happen. The very thing they are all there to prevent in the first place.

So, i think the sideways flash is a sort of ‘what if’ scenario for the viewers to see just how crucial the events of the past 5 seasons really are. We’ll get to see this all play out. Its a clever way to show us this disastrous event, without it actually happening to our losties.

This isn’t a theory, just my feelings on where the sideways flashes are heading.

OK first off i have posted a few theories which root from this idea, but i never seemed to gain much following, hopefully last nights confirmation of the link between Christian and MIB might sway some people.

When Locke was ‘introduced’ to Jacob in that Cabin, he encountered something that asked for his help, and then it proceeded to throw a tantrum.
The next time he visits Jacobs cabin, Christian is chilling in there, claiming to speak on Jacobs behalf.
Every instruction he gave John, stopping the losties from getting off the island, stopping the freighter from getting to it, moving the island, getting the oceanic 6 to come back, having to sacrifice himself supposedly came from Jacob and had to be done otherwise the island and everyone on it would be in grave danger.
Its now undeniable that these commands were not coming from Jacob. Everything John did to protect and serve ‘the island’ was infact to protect and serve ‘the monster’.

Now on to Ben. If Ben ever did infact see or speak to Jacob prior to Lockes encounter, wouldn’t it make sense that whoever it was wasn’t Jacob either? And the leader before Ben? and before that?
I think this misleading has been going on for a long time, Richard was not aware of it, otherwise why would he let it happen? This also leads me to believe that Richard hasn’t spoken directly to Jacob in a long time either, and maybe Jacob only speaks to the current leader.
I think the others have been blindly following Jacobs word, which hasn’t been coming from Jacob.

I believe that John was ‘claimed’ or ‘infected’ to some extent when he first met the Smoke monster, his crazy instant allegiance to the ‘the island’ is very reminiscent of Danielles crew after their first meeting with smokie. When he first saw it, he said he looked into the eye of the island and it was beautiful, but now knowing smokies opinion of the island and his plan to go home, to me it seems Locke was fooled.

Everything Locke did for ‘the island’, replace ‘the island’ with ‘the monster’, and it makes ALOT of sense. Whoever is coming to the island, is coming to stop MIB from fulfilling his plan of getting home, wherever that may be, so it would make sense that Locke would be trying to stop to people getting to the island.

Its also funny that the first time the others meet the losties in 1954, Locke tells Richard that he is the next leader of the others. Richards interest is sparked when Locke mentions Jacobs name, and this gets the ball rolling (lets avoid any chicken and egg time travel discussions because they can go on forever). So i also think Jacob never appointed Locke as leader, and has never said such a thing, this was MIB using the time travelling to his advantage, after all it was ‘Christian’ who lead Locke to the time travel causing donkeywheel, and who also told him he had to die. If the others had knowledge of Lockes future leadership position BEFORE Oceanic crashed, its possible that MIB was also aware, this is why smokie got to Locke so soon after the crash.

MIB has fooled Locke and has bamboozled the others, built him up to the leadership position, then had him die and replace him. This might be why Flocke yells at the others, telling them ‘i’m very disappointed in all of you!’ Because they are mindless sheep who blindly follow the word of Jacob, a man they’ve never seen or spoken to, without even questioning why or if the words are actually coming from him. Now they have to pay the consequences, and MIBs plan to get home is in motion.

But now Jacobs counteraction is in motion, i think he has been waiting patiently for a long time, knowing that MIB would find his loophole and kill him. But now in his ‘dead’ state, the next level of the game begins, and MIB will finally be stopped for good.

Anyway, throw some feedback my way, as i think i’m on to something. I have posted similar theories before, but as the show develops there is more proof that this is the case.

John Locke has been built up as this super christ like figure, who was supposed to become the leader of the others (until MIB found his ‘loophole’) but some things just don’t add up. These are things i just pieced together, and i’d never really clicked with me until now.

A few of Lockes pivotal leadership moments, and tests he had to go through to prove his worth have actually proved the opposite, these are a few that come to mind, theres probably more that i’m forgetting, please refresh my memory.

One ‘test’ Locke had to pass to prove his potential to take the role as leader of the others was to kill his father who was brought to the island, as we all know, Sawyer was the one who killed him.

As Locke lay in a mass grave about to shoot his brains out, ‘ghost Walt’ told him he had work to do. He needed to stop his fellow 815ers from making contact with the freighter, as we remember he failed, and then wondered off into the jungle with his tail between his legs.

So, Locke was told he had to move the island, but he didn’t (not the first time anyway) Ben did.

Now Locke is told he has to move the island and get the Oceanic 6 to return, and to do so he has to die. We saw Locke visit everyone off island, as he tried to convince them to come back, yet again he failed to gain any following, and just as hes about to hang himself hes interrupted by who else but sneaky old Ben. It was Ben who killed Locke and managed to get everyone to come back.

We even saw Richard visit five year old Locke as a child in 1956, posing as a recruiter for a special school. Alpert tests John, he then leaves in a huff, and says Locke was not ready for his school. Once again, locke had failed another one of his trials. Note there as drawing by John of smokie.

Locke failed every test he’d gone through, but was somehow still seen by Richard and the Richardites as the chosen one.
So now it would seem the John Locke we know is dead. Could it be possible that John was never the right person for the job, whatever that may be? Could it be possible that one of the other people who arrived on Oceanic flight 815, is actually the ‘great one’ the others have been seeking? Or maybe everything the others stand for and believe in is a load of nonsense? Apart from Locke being able to walk again after the crash (which granted is amazing), what else made him so special? his connection with the island.

But his connection with the island really came to fruition when he first met ‘the monster’. Knowing what we now know about the monsters ‘character’, Could it be that ever since that moment, MIB knew Lockes miraculous healing would interest the others, so he inspired John to believe he was there for a reason, and guided John to appear to be the saviour the others had been looking for for a long time, to build him up until he gets the position, then have him die and assume his form. MIB knew he could use Locke to his advantage and did.

Okay so the stuff i’ve written about Smokies involvement i don’t necessarily believe, i’m just brainstorming. I found it interesting that when Locke was tested for this oh so great position, he fell at every hurdle, yet he still got the job. This leads me to believe the others have been fooled.

This is not a theory, just a thought i had today.

As we saw in the last episode, Flocke and Sawyer saw a strange blonde kid in the jungle and flocke seemed to be surprised that Sawyer could see him.

I remembered back in season 3, Locke was ‘tested’ for the position of leader of the others, and was told he had to kill his father who was brought to the island, but it was Sawyer who did the deed. I always thought there would be some consequences because of this, could this have something to do with it? Maybe Sawyer is more important to MIBs plans than MIB realizes.

Just an idea, for all we know next week we’ll see that all the losties have the ability to see ‘the blonde kid’. Anyway, what do you think?
