Two ships, similar purposes?
I am fascinated by the time travel aspect of Lost and am perplexed by both the arrival and location of the Black Rock.
By chance, I went to watch Cabin Fever again, the episode where a mini-biography of Locke is shown. As the first shot of the freighter appeared I got to thinking…
Any given any thought to if both the Black Rock and the Kahana were headed towards the island for the same purpose? Albeit a few hundred years apart but simply what if? We know there were shackles and chains aboard the Black Rock which have led some to speculate that it was a slave trading vessel but remember that Michael too was handcuffed to the bed. What if the people aboard the Black Rock were seeking the island for whatever reason and didn’t simply happen upon it by chance? MIB did state to Jacob, “You brought them here.”
On a side note, everyone remember that teacher that tried to convince Locke to go to camp? I wonder if he was an Other or a recruiter for The Others. He has that dark look about him. Anyone agree?
