Does it matter WHEN Jacob touched the Losties?
« on: January 28, 2010, 09:01:33 AM »
Jacob touched:

Kate, Sawyer as kids in the 1970s
Locke after he got pushed out of the building
Jack after his first surgery
Jin & Sun at their wedding

Those are all pre-Oceanic 815; but these are afterwards:

Sayid just before Nadia is runover
Hurley after he gets out of jail

I thought the touch was maybe predestining them to be on Oceanic 815, but that doesn't match.  He presumably resurrected John from the dead and saved Sayid from being run over himself.

Don't get what the touch means.  Plus, there was no scene of his touching Juliet.  Does that mean she really is a goner after The Incident?

I forget who was "Jacob's List" when Michael was sent to get people.  Didn't it not include Hurley but he insisted on coming along anyway?  And Ben was presumably sent to get John specifically, right?

Jacob touched a certain few for a reason, not sure yet why, but the enhanced episode alluded that certain folks from 815 were touched for a reason.

I do not believe Ilana, though he may have touched her, is part of our group of folks that were touched for a reason. I think she was already in play prior to this and has connections to the island/Jacob and what I can't figure but she is there for them.

I don't think it matters.  I think whoever he touched will just remember everything when the reset happens...

said his touch didn't put everyone on the plane. on the plane, on the plane.
his touch will matter for something of course.I wasn't debating that! I like time jumpers idea that it will make them remember if when the reset happeneds. and of course Ilana was in this prior to all this. and has connections to the island. she knew who Jacob was when he went to visit her. none of the others did. that says something. and she knew Latin which is the language of the others and the secret phrase.   I think that is stating the obvious.
