As Christian Shephard said: Jack: And everyone else, they're all dead too? Christian: Everyone dies, Jack. Some before you, some long after you. Jack: Are they all here now? Christian: Well, there is no NOW here.
Ok, I must have missed a few parts as I was washing dishes as well.
the mother was both Jacob and the MiB incarnate.
The creators have come out and said that the Egyptians discovered the Island long ago
ok that is what I thought. I read a little on screenrant and it said the same thing. I just thought that the figure (Tawaret) had a significance since she was fertility god.
Whitmore and Dharma actually had no role at all in anything.
??? did you watch all the episodes
Really on what scale did they provide anything to the story? If Jacob would have brought Desmond to the island to eventually take the stone out, why didn't he just tell Richard or Desmond himself to do it so he could kill MIB and be done with it and preserve the island. All Charles did was want to get back to the island. He did and didn't provide any help to the story. Really just a fluff piece for intrigue.
The Dharma Init. was the same. They were there but actually had no actual part in the story beside fluff. They were just there to "try" to harness the power.
Time travel on the island. WTF? Never explained.
If the Jughead exploded and took out the Swan station. What happened to the future? In Fringe, it would change all the timelines and create an alternate universe. I believe JJ Abrams "fixed" that in Fringe.
Made sure the survivors came to the Island and put a ton of events into motion.
If Jacob could see that far, why didn't he just tell everybody what they needed to know in the first place.
Jacob couldn't do it, and neither could MIB. He couldn't take the cork out without being killed.
He could have just told Desmond when he got to the island...
The Island is basically the gates of hell. If the Island sank and was destroyed, darkness would have consumed the Earth. It's not surprising then that spirits of the dead would hang out in a place like this.
So it's basically like the river Styx.
