So one of my theories about Lost was completely off, but the others seem to still be on track. Here’s a few more things I was thinking about after watching the season premier.
Locke was told that he had to die to get everyone back to the island. Was Christian told this at some point as well?
Also, Christian’s body is missing in both timelines. Locke’s body isn’t. Why?
Locke’s words to Jack at the end of the episode about Christian’s body can apply to Jacob’s body as well.
So it’s established the monster cannot pass through the white ash. It’s not because it’s Jacob’s ash, but Jacob’s body burned up pretty quickly. Could that ash be the remains of past Jacob’s? There sure seems to be a lot of it.
Is the spring, when clear, similar to the ash? In that it keeps the monster away? Is the spring connected to the water in Ben’s secret room in the Dharmaville basement? When Ben emptied it, was he not so much summoning it as turning off the barrier?
