MarkFunk brought up something in an earlier post about MIB being restricted to Locke’s form. This has been on my mind for awhile. Why would Jacob’s death restrict him? Was his ability to take the form of dead people a gift (or curse) from Jacob? If so, what did he give in return…his body perhaps? Furthermore, if a new candidate is chosen will MIB regain the ability to take the form of dead people and if so, whom might he take over or will he remain as Locke?
