The Cabin – Ring of Ash – Smokie
Ok I am having trouble wrapping my head around something. Someone here should be able to shed some light for me.
I was getting the impression that MIB/Smokie was the one in the cabin the whole time. The ring of ash would mean he was held captive inside the cabin. At some point that ring of ash was broken and he would have been released.
How then was smokie running around on the island from the very first episode? We don’t actually know when the ring of ash was broken. So maybe that happened before the pilot? Maybe Jacob was in the Cabin at first? Then smokie got locked in there later?
Illana and crew said that someone else was using the cabin then burnt it to the ground.
I’m just looking for clarity on this. It seems weird to me.
