'This Show Asks the Deeper Questions'

Locke and Jacob reminiscent of characters in Garden of Eden . . . but which is which?

Chris Seay, author of The Gospel According to Lost, chimes in on the developments in Tuesday's episode of LOST. (SPOILERS AHEAD) Seay notes that Fake Locke/Man in Black/Esau "seems to be upright" in his conversations with people, while Jacob seems more mysterious and less "forthright; he seems to be manipulative." Fake Locke is reminiscent of the serpent in the Garden of Eden, but Jacob? With his vague "guidance" and lack of specifics? Seay speculates on what it all means in his latest vlog on the fascinating series:


We know that the Man in Black has not been entirely truthful, if we can take Crazy Claire at her word. Her "friend" told her the Others had taken Aaron, and we know that to be a lie.

Very much enjoy your thoughts on the eps! This was my favorite ep. of the season thus far. I think possibly you transposed Shannon & Libby unless you know of a secret romance with Shannon & Hurley?:)

i'm sure the found inhaler was a reference (tribute) to the fans at this year's comic con. :) start video at 6:05 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMN89M9NmK4

Great insights!

This was my favorite episode of the season, mostly for the fabulous reveal of the lighthouse and its mirrors at the end. But also for the wonderfully redemptive story of Jack and his son. Beautifully acted and so emotional to me.

I too thought this was the most deep and moving episode so far. I didn't even know that Jack had a son from a previous marriage/relationship. Where is he now? And I knew about Hurley and Libby but not him and Shannon. The lighthouse intrigued me the most.
