What a wasted hour.
Maybe Hugo will say them to Jack (at this point, I assume Jack is the new protector) through either mother or Jacob...since Hugo can see the dead, he can be the middleman for the initiation...
the flashback to Jack and Kate with Adam and Eve would have been better handled in a quick "previously on Lost"...
I think this was the most straightforward episode in all of "Lost". It showed what MiB and Jacob are and who they came from. Good enough for me. That it didn't answer all questions about the smoke monster or the light is par for the course.
The second to last A Ride?
The smoke monster is the Man in Black. MiB is just no longer in his body, though he can take its form.
We know this because otherwise smoke monster/fLocke would have been able to kill Jacob himself and would not have needed to con Ben into doing it.
I agree. I enjoyed the episode, but this close to the end, I want to spend most of my time with the main characters.
I do think we'll see some Dharma/Hostiles era background, but only as flashbacks.
Man, that was horrible. Normally I am annoyed when they don't use native languages, but this time, like you, I was merely relieved.
Likely because they're both borrowing from some of the same esoteric traditions. Star Wars being vaguely more Eastern, LOST more Western, but both a kind of hodge-podge.
My episode didn't record, and I had to watch a crummy (so-called HD) torrent. Anyone else?
I watched the episode again last night and then went to bed. One thing I am GLAD MiB isn't just pure evil. I had long been rooting for him not to be. Personally I like him more than Jacob. And if you think about it, just as Jack, Kate, Locke, Michael... everyone on the Island, really, has good & bad aspects to their personality, so does MiB.
He felt betrayed by the woman who killed his real mother and lied about (or at least hid) her role in how he ended up at this point in his life - of course he was angry. She even thought he was the destined protector over Jacob until he discovered her lie.
Lies, and this odd need to never reveal anything to those who ask logical questions seems to cause every conflict on this Island. I mean, I know for the sake of the mystery of the show they don't reveal everything to the viewers, but you gotta wonder if they're only making things worse for each other by not just being up front about the historical information they posses. Communication. I have yelled for years - talk to each other.
I saw preferential treatment the moment they were born, but it wasn't MIB on the good end of it. When Mother delivered Jacob she smiled and laughed and cooed and was happy to see him. She gave him a name. When the second baby came she just stared at him with trepidation as if somehow the presence of a second child changed everything.
I am trying to remember the circumstances of Michaels eventual death. Christian (MIB) was there and told him he could go right before the bomb exploded. Michael was helping wasn't he?
This is how I felt. If MIB is supposed to be evil, this origin story failed to show me why.
What kind of crap is this? People can't have a different opinion than you? I'm not a True Believer. I don't think that everything Darlton does is unicorns, lollipops and fairies. Sorry to offend you.
No one could ever find Jacob's cabin either, unless they were properly guided. This adds up for me.
The Light inside the cave is basically the essence of the Universe. It's everything. Kept inside the cave it is anchored and safe. Tampered with, (i.e.: a human entering it's core), it is released from the cave, becomes the smoke monster, and extremely unstable. If this unstable smoke monster (the freed essence of the Universe) were able to leave the island the Universe as we know it would simply cease to exist.
It has all these memories and can read people's minds because it is life. It already knows everything because whatever happened is a derivative of the smoke monster/essence.
Something about the way the "mother" said "I'm so sorry" when she killed the real mother and brained MIB reminded me of David Tennant saying "I'm so sorry" numerous times in his Doctor Who run.
+1 - Let's also not forget there are 3.5 hours of story left to tell, so there are still some answers forthcoming (even if they're not the ones some people will want to hear).
I'm convinced they could film Vincent taking a dump for an hour and some people would consider it brilliant just because it is Lost, and they must know what they are doing..
"Every question I answer will lead to more questions.." if this is supposed to be a wink to the viewers, I think it's telling that the recipient of that answer got hit over the head with a rock
That was what we were saying when we saw that scene....no way one person could do that.
I figured she had a lot of rocks. I mean that is the only weapon we ever saw her use....
