Going through my re-watch I can’t help but be completely confused by what I am seeing in The Cabin. Not like I knew what was going on the first time around but you would think I would have more answers now then questions!
The first time we ever see The Cabin, Ben tells Locke that “they are going to see Jacob.”
Ben says this infront of Richard who looks concerned but does nothing to stop him, probably because he knew Ben does not know where to find Jacob.
**sidenote** – The Cabin still seems to be a dangerous place that Ben (who really doesnt know shit about Jacob) shouldn’t be meddling with. How do you think Ben found out about The Cabin in the first place? There is also a scene later in season3 where Richard is trying to convince Ben not to do something and Ben says that “Jacob wants it this way.” I just don’t get why Richard allows Ben to lie in the name of Jacob.
Regardless of my sidenote, SOMETHING HAPPENED IN THAT CABIN! Ben was putting on a show but when “help me” was said and things started flying around the room, we actually saw a glimpse of someone!
The second time we see The Cabin is when Hurley happens to stumble upon it. He goes up and looks in the window and see’s a lifeless Christian Shephard sitting the rocking chair (not mysterious figure we saw the first time). Very quickly a face pops up in the window and scares the shit out of Hurley. I believe that face was John Locke’s.
When Hurley was scared he ran away very fast and fell, no way he noticed the ring of ash surrounding The Cabin. Hurley runs the other way and The Cabin reappears in the direction he is running. I believe that Hurley broke the ash ring at this moment. When Locke goes back with Ben and Hurley, The Cabin is gone but the ash circle remains!
Ilana has ties to Jacob, she went looking for The Cabin but when she found it she said “someone else has been using it.” In my opinion this is evidence that maybe Jacob has used The Cabin, but everything we have seen in The Cabin has not been the work of Jacob!
This is where my questions come into play –
3rd Cabin. We see Christian speaking now, on Jacob’s behalf no less, and Claire is with him!
4th Cabin. The ash ring is broken and evidence has been left behind for Ilana that Jacob is at the statue and someone else has been using The Cabin.
The Cabin is burned! Thoughts?
