I think it's inaccurate to assign benevolence or malevolence to Jacob because he's probably just a force of nature.
But how can you stab a force of nature to death?

Speaking of, what was the loophole exactly? Why could Ben kill him when... when whoever was pretending to be Locke couldn't?

It was nice to see Rose and Bernard again. I'm surprised no one found them in 3 years.

LOCKE IS GOING TO KILL THEM!?!?!?!?

OMG did he get resurrected as EVIL??
Wild guess: Locke isn't Locke anymore. He's Jacob's buddy from the start of the episode.
Good guess. How did you know?

More specifically the Oceanic gang.
How did Jacob know to keep tabs on them?
Well in that opening sequence, Titus Welliver said something to the effect, they are always the same or something, I can't remember the exact dialogue, but something in the way he said it, or maybe something Jacob said made me wonder if the 815 survivors are reincarnated versions of past people on the island.
You might be onto something there.

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

It was a good episode, and yes, it would be weird if they reset everything with the bomb blast but if it doesn't, then I don't know how any of them would survive being that close to a nuke detonating. And I don't know why it would propel them forward into the future.

Maybe they do all die and come back next year as "ghosts" like Locke apparently is.

Or maybe it will reset and the Losties will have to return to the Island for some reason.

This also brings up the question of how did the new "Others" know to be on the plane to Guam? Did Jacob guide tell them to be on it? Did Eloise? Widmore? Someone else?

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

Something about "Locke" told me he wasn't the real deal and I immediately thought he was the other adversary to Jacob.

So are we going to go through season 6 with "Not Locke" or will "Not Locke" revive the real Locke?

Seems like it, with the promo at the end "Destiny" and an eye opening up

It's like when Jacob woke Locke up after falling from a building.

Jacob probably touched Locke when the plane exploded so that he can walk.

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

After an awesome season I was disappointed by this episode, gave it a below average. Too much love triangle plot in there. Jack is going to detonate a nuke because he failed with Kate? What? Why even bother telling Dr. Chang about the future if he's just going to be ineffective, standing around yelling at people who are clearly ignoring him.

Was disappointed with Jacob. Putting him, forest gump like, in to key events in the losties did nothing for me. The opening with him on the beach with his adversary was interesting though. I was guessing Locke was in the box, but I was hoping it wasn't him because I liked the new Locke. Now that he's dead, he's basically the eternal sucker. Suckered from beginning to the end, and now his corpse is being carried around like a trophy. Poor guy.

I dunno, this episode was just not that interesting. It almost feels like the finale was given back to the writers of the crappy season two writers or something. The one positive thing is that it doesn't particularly bother me how long it's going to be before the next season starts. I really don't care what happens next right now.

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

Man what a great episode! I think whatever is in the guitar case Jacob gave to hurley will be the key to either prevent things from being completely reset or some that will be able to stop The Adversary, let's call him Esau, since biblically he is the brother of Jacob, fraternal twin actually. Although I'm seeing comparisons to the Heroes finale where they killed a character off (if Locke is indeed dead) but still have the actor stick around

Otherwise, great ep! And to all the people saying they're done with the show, you'll be back next year for the final season and you know it. I thought I heard in an interview Damon and Carlton said they were gonna end similar to The Sopranos finale, which they kind of did, cept they cut to white instead of black

Fork in the electrical sockett this was indeed! Too bad Jacob actually wasn't a 60 ft man made of flames, although he was on fire haha

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

Another question that comes to mind is how does Christian factor into this all this? who's side is he on? Jacobs or Esau's? Or should we also call them Osiris and Set? And could Jacob could have possessed Ben? Like he was taunting ben to kill him, just so he could use him as a meatsuit vessel? Perhaps seeing Terr Oquinn being a little more sinister and Michael Emersonplaying Ben not good perse but less evil?

Woah. That was mental. Need time to process. I have to go to work now too.

Excellent though. Best damn episode for a while.

So Jacob is actually someone named Jacob. I guess that's considered a twist for Lost.

I've posted the first picture before. The second one is from the finale and seems to confirm the statue is Taweret.
