You'll have to forgive me if this is rambling, because I'm trying to write this down to make sense of it all. When Mother died last night, did she not say "Thank You" to MIB? It seems to me she conned him into killing her so she could finally die. Perhaps she was immortal from drinking the wine and couldn't kill herself...and perhaps for some reason couldn't be killed by the Older Others--much the same way the candidates can't die unless they kill each other?
We know they weren't originally immortal because both children aged. It wasn't until MIB became Smokey and Jacob drank the wine that their appearances never changed. So did she long con her "special" son to kill her and imprison Jacob by giving him the immortal sip of wine?

Like many here, I have long suspected Richard to be ancient--either as far back as an Egyptian like society or even as a member of the crew of the Black Rock. Now with the last episode of last season, we also saw MIB and Jacob in period clothing watching what we presume to be the Black Rock in the Ocean.
So the question is: If these three characters are so old, why do the speak perfect modern-American English? Was it an oversight of the writers when originally writing Richard's character and casting him? Is it like Star Trek where everyone in the Universe speaks English for the audience's sake?
My problem with both of those is that in the first instance, Richard was presented in tattered Other's garb making him look ancient. Also, the wr…Read more >
So after doing a Season 2 rewatch I kept coming back to this questions about the blast door map:
Why did Radzinsky/Kelvin paint to where it can only be seen under black light?
I keep trying to come up with a reasoning, but none seem to be making sense. I was hoping with this past season we would get a better idea, but it really only confounds it further. With previous blogs discussing the role of Radzinksy in making the future happen the way it has, did he do it that way specifically tso John could see it during "Lockdown" and further make a decision that brings about the future?
They obviously had writing tools available to them while in the hatch, so flourescent paint (detergent) wasn't the only thing available. That means it had to be i…Read more >
First of all, this is my first blog---I've been reading this site for months now and just now decided to join in the fray. You guys have some great ideas! Now, on to the topic at hand:
So after Desmond realizes that there is nothing harmful outside the hatch when he walks to the boat, why doesn't he leave the hatch from time to time ?
It seems like he would want to explore around the island, especially after he hears pounding on the hatch door from Locke or the sound of Oceanic 815 crashing. So was he just scared as to what he would find? Anyone have an explanation?Read more >
