My theory du joir for MiB's identity
« on: May 05, 2010, 07:52:36 PM »
Alright. So we know next week we are going to get MiB and Jacob's story. At least alot of it. So here is what I think we are going to get regarding our favorite Locke impersonator.

MiB is going to be Jacob's brother. They both arrive at the island through a crash, or however they get there. Once on the island they are going to meet the person responsible for keeping Smokey at bay. Maybe Smokey IS in fact Cerberus guarding the gates of Hell. So Jacob and his brother go about their story on the island and they grow up. In their thirties or so (as we know them know) MiB gets duped by someone (Smokey) into doing something bad. Jacob riles back and kills his own brother out of rage. Smokey then inhabits MiB's body and we have our story. Jacob is bringing people to the island to prove to "Cerberus" that not all people can be corruptible. They laid out the rules of the game and went forth. So every time Jacob sees MiB he is reminded of the evil he himself committed. Also the game he is playing is not with his "brother" but someone impersonating him.

Thoughts?

I think you are on the right track--but what do I know! However, don't forget MIB's crazy mother. She has to figure in the story somehow. I am also thinking their story goes back to the Egyptian times.

Thats a good thought. I think MiB may have been connivedsp into thinking that by whoever the Black Smoke inhabited before him. 2 Women (1 light, 1 dark) One who is MiB and Jacob's mother. MiB becomes manipulated by this other woman (WiB) and becomes convinced that something about the island has infected his family. This is why he holds the idea that he had a crazy mother. Or I could be completely wrong.

Meet Jacob, who's lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Smokey's only seen the sight.
A smoke monster can see from Brooklyn Heights --
What a crazy pair!

But they're cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Where Jacob adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
Our Smokey loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes him lose control --
What a wild duet!

Still, they're cousins,
Identical cousins and you'll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike --

You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind.


Sorry. This is just completely wrong.

Is that the very first Patty Duke reference ever to make it to SWLS? Well played.

I'm not sure but for some reason that stupid song popped into my head while reading this thread. I'm SUCH a nerd!  ::)
