Two Jacks in a Pack
I’m posting kind of late in the week, I know, but this is the first chance I’ve got, and will have to steer clear of this site until Monday now, as I am watching from Ireland – d’oh!!
I, like a lot of you it seems, am looking at past episodes and noticing more and more seemingly unimportant scenes that now have a new meaning in light of recent events. I wont get into too many specifics as I am afraid of steering y’all in the wrong direction, but there have been several times in which Locke has said “you’re not supposed to do this”, “this isn’t how its supposed to happen” and other statements in that vein. I know it has also been mentioned previously that Jack seemed to know only too well what to do in the Pilot episode. NMB noted in a comment on a previous post that in the Pilot scene where Jack, Kate and Charlie go to find the cockpit and the pilot is attacked by Smokey Smokerson, Jack goes missing, only to emerge later to say he “dove into the bushes”. I have to admit I found this odd myself – could we have two Jacks here, as well as two Lockes?? Does anyone else remember when Ethan took Claire, Jack pursued him saying “I’m not going to let him do this again“. Again??? Has Jack lived this very scene before?? Are we seeing future Jack intermittently with present Jack? Can the same be said for Locke???
Would love to hear your opinions on same.
