Mr. James latest video recap includes what I figure to be the best explanation/theory of just what is going on with mr. John Locke and his Jacob-Murdering ways.  Pop on through to watch.

From TVFrenzy:

  • I read someplace that the Comic Con video is meant to tell of upcoming themes but is not necessarily cannon.

    I like the Satan/God metaphor for Jacob/Island. Doe this make the smoke monster and temple part of the island? Does Satan represent free will and God destiny?

    I just thought Locke was going to kill Jacob because he’s stuck in time and asked him for help–he WANTS to die.

  • THinIL

    Great recap and thoughts. I agree with the undertones of good/evil, god/satan. I think these are themes that will never be actually explained. Just like the Island will never fully be explained…it just IS.

    I agree with Marc though….Locke was told by Jacob to “help him” and I think that means end the timeloop. This recap mentioned nothing of the compass…which is most certainly in a timeloop imo. I think the show was trying to tell us that like the compass, Jacob is also in an endless timeloop. Jacob’s timeline most likely resets as a result of Locke killing him during the “Incident” thus reseting him back.

    • hyperRevue

      What do you mean “end the timeloop”?

  • I want to punch this guy in the face.

    • MiNaeClem

      I feel exactly the same. =)

      • Anthonybeer

        Why stop there? I’d like to kill him, take him to the island, make it heal him, kill him again, heal him and just repeat for all time. This is exactly the type of person that gives lost fans a bad name. Turn off your computer, go outside and meet a woman. I love lost as well. But it’s just a t.v show.

        • Victoria

          Whoa, ya’ll put down the haterade!! He’s made videos on his own that some of us find enjoyable–if you don’t want to watch, don’t.

        • Silvertouch

          I’ll never get people on message boards flaming the kind of people who use message boards.

        • demian

          What a stupid comment. What makes him and his funny edited recap videos nerdier than, let’s say, DocArzt’s Podcast? Ah, now I know. Because he’s fat, not pretty and he has red hair!

          I’d say this is exactly the type of person that gives lost fans a GOOD name: Productive, creative, unique, smart.

          • triangulatedsignal

            i would def agree. some of us like to analyze and talk to ppl and watch and read lost related things online and that is our own choice and we do not demand that everyone agrees

        • michael

          …i kinda agree actually. neckbeard.

        • RevGlenn

          Don’t you understand “irony” when you hear it? I bet Mr. James has already met a wonderful woman who loves him. In fact, wouldn’t it be ironic that while you are sitting at your computer with nothing better to do than write bitter comments about your perception of his life, that he is writing a vow of life-time commitment to the love of his life in preparation for their marriage? Unfortunately, it seems that there are more “lost” people in reality than there are on the TV show.

  • i like his recaps a lot.

    can someone say something about the hurley bird please? tks

    • professorstotch

      The Hurley Bird is a bird.

      Is that what you were looking for?

      • triangulatedsignal

        no prof i dont think sarcasm was the expected answer

      • actually is a very big bird

  • Kitty

    I like Mr. James’ theory, but I’m going to submit that it is *Richard* who is the devil. He’s older than anyone seems to know, he’s the figure who “advises” any leader of the Others (just as the devil is a smooth talking influence to lead people astray by their own free will) and we can’t forget all that eyeliner. Jacob was probably a Cain like figure– evil in his own right, but Richard enslaved him and he’s now his prisoner in the cabin. Jacob may have tried to get out of his deal-with-the-devil at some point and Richard eternally punished him for his betrayal. Jacob is desperate for help and recognizes Locke as the Christ-like savior and appeals to him to be saved. Who knows, maybe Locke will rescue Jacob and Jacob will help bring down the devil afterall. But I am starting to (sadly) believe that it’s Richard who is the never-saw-that-coming evil one.

  • cap10tripps

    Pretty much my theory also that Jon is going to kill Jacob, because Jake represents the opposing force on the island. However, it does seem that he is assuming that role against his will (“Help me”). My belief now is that Richard has conspired to further his own beliefs. I think he orchestrated the purge, as he was tired of having to live with DHARMA on the island and probably felt they were to dangerous to what the others’ purpose is. The island was probably against genocide…

  • meems

    Well, I think this guy is hysterical. I love him.

    And I agree with this theory – although it’s seemed like it’s been pointing towards this for an awfully long time. We know that Darlton’s influenced by The Stand, and what is that book about? It’s about the ultimate showdown of good vs. evil, each gathering their own forces for a war. Sometimes it might even be a little hard to tell if a particular character will go on the side of Randall Flagg (the dark man) or Mother Abigail – the god figure. Applying this theme to Lost (we know there’s an all out war coming), and we can conclude that it’s the war of good vs. evil. I think the Jacob was a pirate. A very evil one. I like the conclusion that it’s the island vs. Jacob with the island as God, John as it’s emissary and Jacob as the devil. Cool.

  • lohn jocke

    great comments, huge jackass by the way

  • michael

    i kindof think that Richard being the devil is a little too simple. that guy doing the video review is a co*k. The god/devil thing is interesting but by christ i want to stamp on his webcam and make him swallow it.

  • DizzyDean

    get your teeth cleaned

    • triangulatedsignal

      i hardly think that is relevant lol

      • neoloki

        Sorry, but it is when that mouth comes sweeping down towards the camera and makes you feel like the plaque is going to flake off onto my lap.

  • Iwantmykidneyback

    so if Jacob is bad, that would make locke the “christian shepherd” of the good side. but to me it seems that too many references have been made connecting jacob to the island as if they are one in the same. unless jacob was fooling ben (possibly richard as well? unless he’s bad too and on jacob’s side to advise the leader to follow jacob instead of the island)…wow this is kind of starting to make sense…

    • cap10tripps

      I’m thinkin Jacob’s good but being held against his will. Most likely by Ben, but Richard could be in on this too. Killing Jacob is probably what he wanted John to do when he said, “Help me.” Jacob could very well be being used to keep Ben in power as without his ability to speak to Jacob he would be nothing…

    • neoloki

      Their has been a lot of talk lately about who is bad and who is good. Richard, Jacob, Locke etc al., but the one thing that is unique about Lost is it avoids painting people in the black and white terms of good and evil: in the end it is all a matter of perspective. I mean is Ben really evil? You could make an argument in that direction but you could easily argue a point that justifies most of what he has done.

      So, why now would Lost start labeling characters good or evil when it has religiously avoided those labels in the past.

  • michael

    cant tell if they were joking in the podcast, but they said Jacob was a good guy rather than a bad one. However, they said “60ft tall jacob made of flames: good guy”, so…it might not carry for regular jacob 😛

  • veryinformedaboutlost

    i agree with kitty almost completely about Richard. but my thoughts are that john is going to have jacob knocking at deaths door, to realize that maybe he doesn’t have to kill jacob if he kills the source…which is Richard. I think Richard has to die so he can finally stop advising the leaders of the island because he is the supreme evil…i can’t remember back to which episode it was, but when john first saw jacob, jacob said to him ‘help me’…which is because he wants to stop being evil’s right hand…. and the island has probably confined him to the cabin which worked in richards favor of acting like he was something mysterious and a force to be reckoned with or someone/thing to be followed… i dont think the directors are going all biblical on us (cuz if it turns out being some biblical stuff i’ve gotta stop watchin the program as it’s against my religion) but if they are…just think back to genesis with adam and eve….the serpent represented evil and slithered around on gods creation…earth. richard is slithering around on the island….advising what he wants to get things to go his way, and telling jacob what to do as well..just as the serpent influenced eve to eat the apple of ‘knowlegde’..and she thereafter advised her husband to eat it…making them see they were naked and they became ashamed.. every leader who’s listened to richard has been banned off the island and can’t come back….just as once adam and eve ate from the tree, they were banned from the garden of eden and sent into the dessert….funny how once ur banned from the island…u end up in the middle of a dessert as well…

    • Fiction

      You are not intelligent.

      Adam and Eve weren’t married, as there were no priests around to marry them, and no religion around to provide to them the idea of marriage. 😉 Wrap your feeble brainwashed mind around that one.

      Also, it’s a DESERT, not a DESSERT, which is a treat such as ice cream that you typically eat after dinner.

      Grow up and think for yourself. Live your own life instead of believing a fictional story.

      Where in the Bible does it say you can’t watch a TV show that discusses the very topics the Bible discusses? 🙂 Seems pretty counter-intuitive to me! You would think an authentic religion would welcome open discourse.

    Go into a cave that has been dark since the beginning of time, turn on a flashlight, light some torches, drag in a generator and hook up some electric lights, light some candles, throw a party. Do you see a battle going on between darkness and light? No. Darkness is simply dispelled by light. There is no battle, just darkness disappearing into light. Did you see darkness come and yank the torches out of Richard’s hands as he stood in the magical underwater Raiders of the Lost Ark cave? No. As above, so below. My apologies Star Wars fans, but discussions of the imagined “battle” between the forces of darkness and light seem simply misunderstandings about the nature of reality. There is no battle, just an obfuscation of light. Granted, the obfuscation can seem impenetrable in certain characters like the Ben, but, even so….it is merely obfuscation, not some big crazy battle. Ben certainly seems the most misguided character in the story. The real diagnosis may be psychopath, sociopath, borderline personality disorder, narcissist…it doesn’t really matter. He lacks light and while we may be afraid of dark, we needn’t be. No matter how obfuscated, “there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” So let’s shine a little light on that weasel.

    It’s a Lostapaloosa tonight! I’m hoping Jack defuses Jughead. Jhead is way to dangerous to leave lying around. Jughead. What a perfect name for brain-dead destruction. Speaking of names, I love the way the name “LaFleur” works. His partnership with Juliet is where the real flowering of his character seems to have taken place. Who would have thought the aloof Sawyer would mature into James LaFleur? I’ll be watching to see what happens to his expanding heart and wisdom. I hope it doesn’t get shut down.

    Jack appears to be trying to change history in all the wrong ways, but I’ll wait to see what happens tonight. Certainly, Kate does not want to land in LA or jail. And while Jack’s deepest desire seems to be cooperation and community, Kate, I suspect, cannot be trusted. Jack, misguided? Kate, self-absorbed?

    Thanks for the interesting thoughts to chew on, Mr. James!

      LOL you have it so wrong. The darkness is the natural state, the light is the temporary anomaly.

      There was darkness before our sun was formed, and when it burns out, there will be darkness after.

      If you throw a party in your dark cave, it won’t be long before the candles burn out, the torches burn out, the flashlights run out of batteries, and the generator runs out of power, and then what will you be left with? Oh, that’s right, the light will have died out and the cave will have returned to darkess. Darkness needs nothing to exist; simply the lack of light. The light requires energy, it must find a way. The darkness simply IS. It’s always there, everywhere, waiting for the light to die or fade. It’s inevitable.
