Hey did anyone ever suggest that Jack would be the new smoke monster? Cus it makes sense in a lot of ways.

– MIB was more trustworthy of science as Jack was, where the new leader of the island Hurley is probably more of a faith guy, like Jacob.

– he woke up in the same place, or at least in the same body position, as MIB after entering the light cave thingy.

– in purgatory Kate said she waited for Jack so long, like at the time I took it as she just had to wait her whole life until she died, but maybe she had to wait til however long Jack’s spirit as the smoke monster got off the island as well. It explains why removing the cork made MIB mortal, so he was able to die and pass on. The same has to happen for Jack to pass on perhaps?

– it be pretty cool.

Thinking about this even more, perhaps anybody who enters the light who is not “permitted” like say Desmond was, turns into the smoke monster. But I dont think turning into the smoke monster necessarily means that person is going to be evil or have a grudge against the protector of the island. That gives more reason to why the writers would characterize MIB so much, he had a single, human motivation. Perhaps it wasn’t his destiny or assignment to be against Jacob, he just chose to be.

So maybe while Hurley and Ben were running things, they talked to a very nice and accommodating Smokie Jack and they just had to find Desmond again so they could let Jack pass on. But knowing Jack, perhaps he pushed that off for awhile, and lent Hurley and Ben a hand on the island. I mean, we know smokie can move a lot of shit, plus Jack would be a good leader while Hurley and Ben were off island.

The writers said the show was about the characters, and it was, and all the shit that the Losties went through were result of Jacob’s and MIB’s character. MIB was pissed (who wouldn’t be, his life wasn’t that great, psycho mom and all) so a lot of shit happened. And perhaps Jacob could have easily went over seas and just gave a few people a job application to take over the island, but he and his brother liked to play games, so they did.  they both got a God complex or something. And you know what? Thank goodness cus there wouldn’t have been much of a show if the two of them just hugged it out and got along.

Oh and another thing…

…like the mysterious Mom of Jacob and MIB, she was probably both the protector and the smoke monster. Like why not be both? But then if the same procedure had to happen with the cork being removed to make smokie mortal, how she was killed so easily? My answer, it’s fricken LOST and there was probably a loophole or exception that really doesn’t have much logic behind it, but you just have to go with it.

Like maybe because she was both smokie and the light protector allowed her death to be easier, or honestly the fact she didn’t get first word in, or maybe just because the rules don’t apply to her as much. It’s LOST, if the show ever had a straight set of definitive rules the show would have been called FOUND.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this before, but what if we are dealing with two seperate smoke monsters. Let me break it down for you:

– When the monster scans people and “judges” them, it makes a very distinct clicking noise.

– When it is killing someone, it makes heavy chain clanking noises, as well as the roar which we all are very familiar with.

– Since jacob was murdered we haven’t seen the scanning version of the smoke monster, only the killing one.

What if both jacob and MIB are smoke monsters, the only difference, is that it was jacobs job to judge, while MIB’s job was to kill whoever jacob didn’t need?

Since Jacob has been killed, we have only seen the MIB version of the smoke monster, could this be the reason?

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.

Written 17th February

Flocke/MIB says that he wants to “Go Home” in Episode 1 this season.  He also said in the most recent episode that he was a man just like Sawyer once.  Where / what do you think he means by “Home”?

Most logical for me is he wants to leave the island and go back to dry land.  For what purpose is up in the air, too.  To wreak havoc/destroy the world?

Are there any more exotic theories on MIB’s “Home” out there based on evidence from the show?

I’ve read some really bizarre things like “MIB/Flocke” is an Alien and wants to return to his home planet.  Or maybe less strange, that Flocke wants to time-travel to change the history of things in his favor permanently.  Is Flocke like Dorothy stuck in an alternate world as in “The Wizard of Oz” — MIB just wants to go back home to Kansas and forget this fantastic nightmare?  LOL, if Flocke puts on a pair of ruby red shoes and starts saying “There’s no place like home,” I’m going to laugh.
