Which one do you think is right? Will season 6 finally resolve this central mystery or will it be left open for interpretation?
I'm not so sure but I think it's a bit of both. It's pretty clear that the survivors crashed on the island for a purpose and not just by coincidence but I think it's up to them whether to act upon that or not. What I mean is, maybe Jacob, in bringing them to the island, has given them the chance to do something (or to seek redemption) but it's up to them to choose it or not. Does that make sense? Its a bit hard to explain as we don't know what that something is.
