It seems both the cave scratchings and the names on the dial in the Lighthouse are both Jacob's candidates. Do you think we'll later learn that one of them belongs to Smokey? Or is it that Jacob is gone and smokey isn't so he doesn't need anyone to take over for him? Or perhaps, it's not even possible for someone else to become Smokey since it's more of a monster rather than a man.
Maybe the cave is the list of MIB's candidates and the Lighthouse (dark and light contrast again) is Jacob's -- which could explain why some of the numbers and names are slightly different in the two places -- but, at least going off of right now, why do you think Jacob seems to be the only one in need of candidates?Read more >

Anyway, Aaron was born the same night Boone died. Think it's possible the writers only named Claire's baby Aaron due to …Read more >
A friend of mine came to me after watching seasons 1-5 online at breakneck speed (about 2 months!) with what he thought was the flaw of flaws in all LOST logic: Jack and the rest of the O6 came back to the island to "save everyone who they left behind" however, unbeknown to them, and like Juliet said in 'Whatever Happened, Happened,' they "didn't need saving." While I merely replied that this wasn't so much a plot hole as it was a manipulation on Ben's part and somewhat an ignorance on Jack's part to assume that Sawyer, Juliet, Jin, Miles etc were in a great deal of danger, my friend was really irritated that the O6's return to the island was ultimately unnecessary (to which many of us would reply that they never should have left in the fi…Read more >
