Others followed MIB?
Why did they executed the purge? Why did they chased and captured losties? Why did Locke had to kill his father to become ruler of the others? It seems like the kind of stuff smokey would do… Just like some kind of tradition that as he killed his mother every leader would have to kill his parents.
Dogen said that Jacob promised him that he would save him son if he never left the island. Is it an action Jacob would do or seems more like MIB’s instructions?
Didn’t Richard got to talk to Jacob? How often? Why the others acted like that? I understand they spoke latin and wore old fashioned clothes to honour Jacob, but there’s still so many mysteries about the others.
I want to think that the writers knew what they were doing, but the more I think of it the less I know if that’s true or they simply were creating mysteries with no sense at all, just for the sake of it. That’s bad writing, even if this is one of the best series ever.
