For 9 months we need a name for Jacob’s dark haired friend\enemy\murder guy so i’m going to coining the phrase Anti-Jacob
Now Let me paint a picture for you.
We know two things for certain,
1. The Anti-Jacob possessed and took Locke’s and probably Christian’s form
2. The Smoke Monster took Yemi (Mr. Eko’s brother) and Alex’s form and maybe even Montond and Rousseau’s crew form. (What appeared to be the sickness to Rousseau probably was the fact that smokey killed them, then took her crew’s form. Just like we thought something was strange about Locke)
So I’m proposing that Ole Smokey and the Anti-Jacob is one in the same. And that’s what “Smokey Alex” told ben to obey “Smokey\Anit-Jacob Locke.”
Now here is my proof and rational.
What if the truce between the Hostile Others and the Dharma Initiative where they have to buried the bodies is to keep the Anti-Jacob for stealing their thoughts and from.
The Smoke Monster can only take the form of the dead and unburied inhabititants of the island, (i.e. Christian, Yemi, Rousseau’s Crew, Alex, and Locke) and Widmore knows this little piece of island lore. That is why Keamy buried Rousseau and Carl in a shallow grave. It’s the Others why of trumping the Anti-Jacob.
But why bury them?
Maybe if the bodies are buried then the Anti-Jacob can’t take their form. (that’s all i really got on that idea)
Did you notice that jacob made it a point to touch everybody in the flashbacks? Maybe Jacob has some sort of similar power to the Anti-Jacob where he can influence people by touch. Like touch mind controll type stuff. (see the chick form the Wolverine movie) All it takes is just a small touch on the nose or shoulder
Another thought is how come Jacob gives everybody choices and the Anti-Jacob tells everybody what to do? I want to draw a comparison to Christ and the Anti-Christ(Satan).
C.S. lewis referrers to Satan in the Screwtape letters as The Great Trickster. Which is unlike a God of love that would send his son to die for the sins of humanity… Just a thought.
Anti-Jacob can’t kill Jacob, he had to trick somebody else into doing it.
I think that Anti-Jacob is wrong. I bet that Jacob can’t get killed in general but he just thought that he couldn’t do it. I Jacob is like a super human diety type then why wouldn’t he try to fight Ben back. It appears that ether he wanted to die or wanted to fool the Anti-Jacob.
Just some food for thought.
