Hi all. I'm suprised I haven't seen any discussion about this - to my knowledge. In LA X, seconds before Bram gets "dealed with by the smoke monster", Bram formed a circle of ashes around his body. The monster attemps to kill him, but centimeters before reaching him, the monster was suddenly stopped by some force when reaching the ash perimeter, screaming like an elephant, while some white light appeared for seconds over Bram's body. The question is : what is this, and what does it mean ? The question I don' want to ask : why didn't people on the nearby beach notice Bram's followers being thrown out through the ceiling.
