Sayid and Ben have creepy voices, imagine them reading a book to children.
At the beginning of the episode I thought that was Charlie in the afterlife . . . but it turns out to be Jacob. It’s nice to be a face to a name. Looks like a loop hole was found by The Man in Black, being that he had to get someone else to do the killing.
Maybe The Man in Black is also somehow Smokey that takes over peoples bodies like Christian Shepherd, Alex, Yemi, and Locke.
Remember when Ben went to be judged a little while back . . . you never saw Locke and Smokey together.
Remember in the first season when Locke was teaching Walt the game of backgammon and referenced the white and black game pieces . . . great foreshadow.
I think we’ll learn the Man in Black is named Esau.
I wonder if Jacob is suppose to represent Jesus. In that opening scene he was wearing white, and caught and ate a fish which made me think of some biblical references. Then he is stabbed willingly and kicked into the fire – like a sacrifice. Not to mention, in each on of the flashbacks he did something very Jesus related.
No Desmond in the episode, and there were also other notable absences.
It finally hit me why in previous seasons we saw people wear protective clothing outside of the hatch . . . to protect them from radiation.
Speaking of radiation, I wonder if that made Faraday a super-genius.
And I wonder if that radiation somehow caused Ben’s tumor from way back when.
New Kids on the Block lunch box . . . that was funny.
I think I actually met Jacob back in college – well, he did seem everywhere, didn’t he? Also, the man doesn’t age just like someone else on the show.
And the guy sure is touch-feeley. Did you catch that, he touched everyone in all those flashbacks (yes, even Hugo – and I liked what he told Hugo about his gift being a blessing), and we will discover that touch meant something – that they won’t die.
But he wasn’t in Juliet’s flashback.
Kate’s hydrogen-bomb line on the sub was laaaaaaaaame. That’s the worst acting I’ve seen in quite a while.
Miles yelling out “DAD!” was touching. Might have been the only time in his life he called someone that.
That line said to childSawy, about what’s done is done and not being able to change anything . . . I have a feeling we’ll see Sawyer have to make a choice regarding changing something regarding the timeline.
To hear Jack say not to give up on Locke when he was talking to Richard was a big moment in the series.
So Eloise was a leader, and so was Widmore.
Eloise is one tough mama.
I bet Sayid was hoping that “I’m carrying a nuclear device” line would go farther than what it did.
Good to see Vincent again. And it’s nice to know that Bernard and Rose are enjoying retirement, and we’ll find they are the Adam and Eve skeletons discovered in a previous season.
I never thought Jacob’s cabin would be destroyed. But I bet it was never Jacob’s cabin . . . it belonged to the Man in Black.
Juliet changing her mind reminds me of many moments of my marriage.
Richard and Locke being able to push that stone wall was a bit far fetched, but then again, so is the whole show.
Ben’s stabbing of Jacob sure was girlie. But Jacob seemed like he was willing to be killed.
