That’s The Plan, Fans
Written 14th April
Faith is a powerful thing, don’t you think? The second time Locke came face to face with ol’ Smokey it tried to drag him into a hole in the ground and if it hadn’t been for his fellow Losties who knows what would have happened. But Locke was not afraid. “Let go” he said, “it will be alright”. Locke is a man of faith. As the end of this wonderful show approaches I think we could all take a page from the book of Locke and have some faith. Last night is where I found mine. It started about 3 seconds after Illana blew herself to kingdom come. Illana was chosen by Jacob to protect the six. That was her purpose. But when she proposed to blow up the Ajira Airways Flight 316 plane she went against the plan that Jacob has known all along and for that she had to be eliminated. My faith was reconfirmed when Hurley finished off the Black Rock. The Ajira is not supposed to be destroyed. Jacob doesn’t want that to happen at all. But why? Here is where a little faith goes a long long way. Jacob has had a plan since day 1 and everything that has occurred on or off the island has been apart of that plan. Even though we, the viewers, can’t see the big picture he can and he always has. If the Ajira wasn’t meant to be destroyed to me that means that Jacob wants his Nemisis and the Six on that plane. It’s part of his plan. But again, why? We have been lead to believe that if Nemisis makes it off the island then everything would cease to exist. But what if that is all part of the plan too? Jacob isn’t the angel we have come to believe he is. Even Nemisis seems less evil and evil all the time. Both these men operate in shades of grey and to think that Jacob couldn’t be capable of evil is nieve. I mean evil is really a subjective thing. It depends on where you stand and how you look at it. It gets harder with each passing episode to formulate a theory about the end but I now think that if we just have faith in Lost, in Jacob, and in the writters then we will not be disappointed…I hope.
