    “It only once” vs. “If it only ends once” – there are certainly implications if there was an “if” in the statement. One suggests knowledge and certainty that the end will eventually come. The other is a statement of hope of something that is sought after.

  2. Marshall Says:

    Damn I need an “edit” button

    “It only ends once” vs. “If it only ends once”

    Yes – it’s clearly been happening for a while now; over and over.

    And yet… Jacob could be easily killed by a mortal man. That scene

    reminded me of Obi-Wan standing there, allowing Vader to kill him. Does

    this mean Jacob only becomes stronger? I guess we’ll see sooner or later.

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    I definitely think that Jacob knew and intended for Ben to kill him.. all part of his plan

  5. Marshall Says:

    Can anyone tell me how Daniel Faraday got off the island? He showed up after a long absence on the submarine.

  6. Lycanthropist Says:

    he apparently dipped out on the sub at some point to go work for Dharma back on the mainland

  7. jay Says:

    He told ben he had a choice. This tells me he tried to talk ben out of it. But he then just let him stab him twice without fighting back and manages to say “they’re coming”.

    Can’t wrap my head around it.

  8. Marshall Says:

    Who is coming? That’s another question I have.

  9. jay Says:

    dammit, this season was opposed to answer all my questions! I have more from this one episode than the entire last season lol!

  10. Lycanthropist Says:

    I dont think he was tryin to talk Ben out of it, I just think he was making it clear to Ben that he was acting out of free will.


    at first I thought he was talkin about Ilana and Co

    but I think he may be talking about the doppelgangers

  11. Marshall Says:

    Dopplegangers – do you mean the people on the plane in the alternavers or are you talking about Genghis Khan and co.?

  12. jay Says:

    so the time split had to have happened before the plane took off otherwise we would have had the same event unfold up until the split mid flight.

  13. Lycanthropist Says:

    the multiversers

  14. Lycanthropist Says:

    I would say that the time split in 1977 when the bomb went off.

  15. Lycanthropist Says:

    and do you think that Hurley saw Charlie X and Ana Lucia X during his time off the island?

  16. Marshall Says:

    Agreed – the split happened when the H-Bomb went off in 1997.

  17. jay Says:

    ifth3 split took place in 77 then the 2 timeslines don’t diverge that much.

  18. jay Says:

    maybe our destiny is predetermined but free will gets in the way by causimg these time splits

  19. Lycanthropist Says:


    the passengers of 815’s live wouldnt be that effected

    but characters such as desmond, ben and juliet will be severely affected

  20. ohhphee Says:


    Interesting thought. Do you think that explains Hurley’s ability to talk to the “dead”? He’s just talking to the alt versions of those characters? I forget what Charlie said to him at the asylum.

  21. Lycanthropist Says:


    yeah thats what i was gettin at

  22. ohhphee Says:

    I found this on lostpedia:

    “Charlie, in a fully corporeal form, began visiting Hurley at the mental facility, possibly even visible to one of the other patients. Hurley pointed out that Charlie was dead, to which Charlie responded, “I am dead, but I’m also here.” Charlie told Hurley that “they” need him, apparently referring to the people still on the Island. Hurley repeatedly said “You’re not here” and closed his eyes while counting to five. When he opened them, Charlie had disappeared without a trace.”

    fwiw – 99.9% positive Jacob says “It only ends once, and everything before that is just progress” – giving him the opposite philosophy of his nemesis who thinks they are in this endless cycle….

    ..I def think Jacob was holding Smoky prisoner this whole time, hence why his cabin was surrounded by ash when he lived there….

    ….also, when the ash was broken, Christian was in the cabin….I am now thinking that Smokey/nemesis = Christian as well…(and every dead person we’ve seen)….fucking nuts….so smokey is just trying to get the fuck out, but Jacob needs him there for some reason…..

    …the whole underwater thing is fucking with me…the implications could be manyfold…

  24. Mr.Miner Says:

    d baum. good to see you!

  25. jay Says:

    I think jacob is keeping smokey on that island as a protection measure.
