“Dead” Isabella & Smokey On Screen Simultaneously?
Sorry if this has been brought up before but I have a quick (but most pressing) question. In the most recent episode about Richard, we see his dead wife Isabella come to Richard while he is still trapped in chains on the Black Rock. Isabella tells him they are both in hell and that the Devil is coming. While we see Isabella talking to Richard, we hear Smokey’s noises in the background indicating he is coming (the horn, cricket noises, whatever-you-call-them).
Now generally, I thought Smokey could look like anyone who is deceased. But I also thought that MiB can only take one form at a time. For example, we have never seen UnLocke and Smokey appear on screen simultaneously. We also didn’t see Alex or UnLocke appear simultaneously. We also did not see Christian and UnLocke appear simultaneously…you get my point! One form at a time!
So, if this is true and MiB can either show up as Smokey OR a dead person, then how do we hear Smokey coming when Richard is talking to Isabella on the Black Rock..???? That would have to mean either MiB can take two forms at once (which we haven’t seen before – correct me if I am wrong), Isabella is alive (but we saw her die at Richard’s home), OR someone else who is on the island can take the form of dead people besides MiB…
Now seeing as how we sort of saw Smokey devour Isabella, I want to say Smokey and Isabella were two different entities. Otherwise, it is rather theatrical if Smokey pretended to be Isabella and ate himself (I hope that makes sense…)
What do you guys think? Jacob said (how much can we trust what he says) that “That wasn’t your wife”…so that means it was probably MiB in Isabella’s form..but if it were, how is it possible that MiB was in both Smokey form and Isabella form at the SAME TIME???
Lastly, maybe the fact that Isabella’s spirit is on the island talking to Hurley means she REALLY died on the island…? Maybe Jacob brought her back from her disease-induced death in his magic pool in the temple and then that’s why we saw Smokey eating her on screen. But if that were the case, Jacob wouldn’t have seemed so surprised to see Richard or hear about his wife…and their general conversation doesn’t fit unless Jacob was “playing dumb”.
Discuss guys =)
