Smokey/Evil Locke/Cerberus/Jacob’s Enemy
Ok, after doing some research and having the identity of the statue revealed by ABC themselves in their episode recap, I have deduced that Smokey is the Egyptian god of evil and general unpleasantness, Apep. Apep was associated with the underworld, and was sometimes referred to as an eater-of-souls. Hmmm, sound like anyone we know? If you haven’t already read the recap, the statue is confirmed to be Tawaret, Apep’s wife. Also worshipped to protect pregnant women. How much you want to bet the destruction of that statue is related to the fertility problem on the island? Oh, and Apep was in a constant struggle with none other than Ra himself.
But allow me to clarify, I don’t think the writers would simply have a collection of Egyptian gods running around on the island. So I’d guess whatever these deities are, they have been called many things over many years. Just a thought, so go easy as it is my first post. I have plenty more where this came from, though.
