So, is Desmond able to stop Smokey?
« on: March 30, 2010, 11:08:04 PM »
Does it have something to do with them saying previously that he was special, that the rules don't apply to him?

It has to be something like that... They keep saying "the island isnt done with you yet" to Desmond... Maybe Desmond is so infallible that he's the only one who can see through MIB's schemes...? I dont know... But If Desmond is special, I'd like to know how...

Maybe because like Aaron, he was conceived on the island... ?

I'm wondering if they need to use Desmond to in someway go back in time again?

But is Widmore working for Jacob? We know Ben was, at least some fair portion of the time. I know there's a fair amount of free will getting tossed into this mix, here, but I'm unsure as to both Widmore and Ben's place in things.

I'm guessing that he is ether working for Jacob or for himself.

I think Widmore might be working for Jacob in the way Torquemada was working for God, a bit misguided.

Could Desmond's special-ness be attributed to the amount of electromagnetism he was exposed to when turning the failsafe?

I can see it now....  at another auction, Widmore bought another old manuel.  While his first purchase was the Black Rock log book, the second one was the notebook of Daniel Faraday.  Upon examination, he learns that Desmond is important and that he serves as a constant.  He may in fact be the key to contol of the island.

Oh, and I don't think for one minute that Charles Widmore is spending all his money to do Jacob's bidding in saving/protecting the island.  He is in it for himself.  He's got illgotten gains of the goods on his mind.  Not ultimately altruistic algerisms.  Or something like that.

Think Chuckie is in it for his own good, but his own good seems to be aligned with the "good guys" now.

To some extent, yes.  He wants the island saved so he can exploit its power and potential.  MIB wants to destroy the island, which would not serve Charlie's ultimate goals.

My first thought was that it would be Des...but I was really hoping it would be Aaron!

It should have been Desmond and Kelvin, so that after being touched by Jacob (am I the only one disturbed by this phrase?), they could push a button to keep MIB locked up for eternity, like someone on this forum already mentioned.
