Great theories by EW’s Jeff Jensen

Jeff from the EW site posted great theories. Although it does not count all of the island elements (symbols, whispers, etc.), he had an idea of it by looking at the island in a larger picture.

Also, these are theories that does not talk about alternate timelines, so it’s a refreshing read!

I suggest to skip to the second page (there are six read-worthy pages).

I don’t want to talk about his ideas, so just read it for yourself, if you want to:,,20313460_20339244,00.html

PS. In his article, I like the underlying theme of “rescuing the children” throughout each season. Would Season 6 do the same?

I'm the dumbest guy in the world. I haven't watched Lost until the summer of 2009. I watched all four seasons within a few days, now I'm starting to again recently, in addition to season five! woot! :P

  1. Meh. It’s a good theory but… I have some disagreements.

    The guy in the black shirt is the smoke monster. No he isn’t.

    The Sandman Series was written by Neil Gaiman, not Nell. Look it up.

    If the consequence of touching the Losties is simply mortality for Jacob then why didn’t Captain Black Shirt just kill him himself? What exactly did Blackie do to force Jacob to do that anyway?

    He’s totally wrong about the final scene. There’s no way Ben will have anything to do with that.

    The part where he talked about Jacob touching the Losties and giving a gift to each one he touched is good but not very well thought out… he gave speech to Sawyer, ok… Love to Jin and Sun, sure. Strength to Locke? Seemed to me his gift to Locke was life which could explain why Locke is so important. How about virtue to Kate (maybe…), strength to Hurley, faith to Jack… crappy luck to Sayid?

  2. I think that would be a cool final scene. If the writers could find a way for it to make sense it would seem as though Jacob & MIB once went through something similar to what Locke & Ben experienced.

  3. I’ve never read something so professionally written that told me so little.

    It was vague and unoriginal in many ways. I still see no definite connection to the season finale’s and “father/child” relationships. He even admit that season 4 is a major stretch.

    Jack and Christian being the focus in the finale? Of course it’s possible, I see no reason to bet on it though. Jack and Christian are still only two characters of the many. I don’t Jack (anymore) or Christian personally, and I’m sure many other fans feel the same way. So for them to end it this way seems illogical. The finale is going to be answering the BIG questions: smokie, who’s Jacob and friend, what’s the island, WHEN is it truly from etc…..

    You’re alright Cliff, thanks for sharing this link. I think this “theory” sucks balls though. This guy writes well, and would be a good salesman, but there’s no substance or proof in his ideas.
