Lost > Lost Review: Jacob Knows Jack > Comments Page 2
When did everyone decide that Rousseau was "infected?" I thought it was pretty clear that she was not claimed while her friends had been. She was certainly deranged, but she was also living on a crazy island for 16 years after her friends were attached by a pillar of smoke, tried to kill her, and her baby was stolen from her. Who wouldn't be crazy after that.
I should also add, polo; when did Jack ever live with Claire? She was born and stayed in Australia and he had no clue who he was. Sayed and her were not tortured, they were tested to see if they were infected. And evil Locke wants her because she is 1. Easily manipulated, especially by her fathers ghost 2. She can influence the losties since they know who she is and have no reason not to trust her.
Are we watching the same show?
Claire is not the candidate Jack is. Claire is insane and was never touched by Jacob. That's a ludicrous theory.
The best part of this episode was the sideways world. Nothing happened in the real world. Once again we get no answers about anything and more questions which is getting absurd at this point. I gave the writers all the faith obliged had that they would answer our questions and yet here we are 6 episode in and we've had one minor revelation: those touched by Jacob are associated with the numbers. Claire's whereabouts and infection reveal nothing and only pose the question as to how one gets infected. Rousseau Claire and sayed have mo connection whatsoever and yet they all are "infected" so how does it come about?
People should be more upset about the waffling that's going on. Every week we are taunted with ALL QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED!!! in the previews and yet so far; bupkis. These little cutesy throwbacks like Hurley's ruminating in the cave is just that;
Littleton is the last name she was given, but if she is the daughter of Christian her biological last name is "Shepherd"
@Ashley: It is, but her father is Christin Shepard.
I thought Claire's last name was Littleton
Jack isn't a candidate, Claire is. Here's my argument for that:
-She's his sister and thus shares the last name "Shepherd"
-She was tortured by the others as was Syaid
-Fake Locke has an interest in recruiting her as he does with Ford and did with Locke (both candidates)
-The beginning part with Jack not remembering his appendectomy illustrates how the house in the mirror that he saw could be where he lived with Claire when they were younger, but he just doesn't remember that because it was before he was 3 (when he had his appendix removed). Thus Jacob showed him the house to jog his memory for what he "has to do."
There's a few other items, but I can't remember them at the moment. Anyway that was my big revelation from this episode.
I suspect the church spire we saw was from the church Oceanic Six met Faraday's mother. If the lighthouse helps others come to the island, perhaps that's how she found the island in the first place.
@DK: I was wondering the same thing. I know that Jacob said, after the fact, that the whole trip to the lighthouse was to get Jack thinking. However, he reiterated that the original intention of the mission (i.e., to help bring a mysterious someone to the island) would still come to fruition. I was thinking the person he was trying to bring there might be either Widmore or Desmond.
great episode, agreed it felt slow with no Locke until the very end. Where's Widmore?!
