anyone thought that the stepmother may be "Tawaret"?
I'm not saying she is the goddess herself, which is anyway a possibility as we are now deep into mythological plot lines and she had been on the island since before anyone else we've seen so far; but also that she could have been identified by Jacob as such.
She seems to have come from an older civilization than the Romans, she also seemed to keep some of the old Egyptian traditions, like tapestry weaving, and maybe she taught them to MiB and for a longer amount of years to Jacob.

Just a thought.
This, of course, doesn't exclude the possibility of Desmond being one of the remaining 6 candidates, as there's still 1 missing in Ilana's list, and many names that we haven't got to see on the lighthouse dial.Read more >
Me, I don't really know what to think, since she too was touched by Jacob... maybe Jacob has given her another role instead of a "candidate" for some reason. Or maybe Flocke has simply lied to us about what being a candidate implies. We'll obviously know more after today's episode. Especially as it is centered on Jack!
What are your theories?
