Main Article Theories about
Mr. LaShade
Main Discussion
 Theories may be removed if ... 
  1. Stated as questions or possibilities (avoid question marks, "Maybe", "I think", etc).
  2. More appropriate for another article.
  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.

  • Mr. LaShade turned out to be the unseen villain of the show. "LaShade" contains "shade", possibly alluding to the Man in Black and the reveal of "Locke" actually being the Man in Black.
  • Mr LaShade being the Cobra could be a hint that someone we wouldn't expect is really Jacob.

  • "LaShade" can manipulated to read "Shephard" by shuffling the letters and flipping the "d" to read as an "p" and "L" to read as an and "r"
    • "Cobra" can also be manipulated to read "Jacob" by shuffling the letters and flipping the "r" to read as a "J"
      • The episode in which the Hurley states 'Mr Leshade was the Cobra' was called "Exposé" - It is clear that the writers were telling us something even then, based on what we know now (as of Season 6 Ep 9), that Jack Shephard looks most likely to replace Jacob thereby continuing the ongoing power struggle and rivalry with Locke through the greater struggle between Jacob and MIB.
