"We're next"
« on: November 01, 2006, 11:17:11 PM »
Why do you think that is?  Has everyone in the Pearl group killed someone or is a "bad" person?

Your thoughts?

I have no idea what this meant. Locke's faith is in the island and know he is hearing that they are next. Is he going to lose his faith again?

Why did smokey turn on Eko, is it going to come after all of them?

At this point in the game I'm not even sure the writers know whats going on. I guess thats what you get for having different writers for every episode.

perhaps it's not that they're next to die, but rather that they are next to be judged?  Perhaps Eko just had the most sin on his shoulders, and had to face his actions first??? I'm just yapping, I have no clue.

I am wondering if Eko had answered differently if he would have lived like if he had confessed and repented...but because of his answer that he was a bad man he was killed.

I like the idea that they are next to be judged and not to die. Eko was defiant to the end, maybe he would of lived if he repented.

The others don't appear to have anything to do with what is going on the losties side of the island

I hate to be the English major, but if Eko said "You're next", it is not specific if he means Locke or everyone.

We do not know how Eko said it, he used more than two words, Locke paraphrased it for the losties.

I hope the two newbies are "next".  She's pleasant to look at, but otherwise they suck

Smokie was all over the place tonight, and TPTB really want us to believe that Yemi and Smokie were working together or one in the same.

Also, Yemi kept asking Eko to confess, but that was the one theme through Eko's flashbacks.  Locke and the losties didn't have that same theme, so I don't think they will be asked to confess.

They may be "next", but I don't think the same thing will happen.

...and give Paulo and Nikki a break.

Even though everyone was asking for Eko to confess his sins, he refused to do it. THis had to be why eko was killed.

May I remind y'all that Smokie the Monster actually left Eko after he refused to confess, but Eko chased after Smokie.  Yes, Smokie did kill Eko, but Eko was chasing Smokie, so it may not have been Smokie's original intention to break Eko at that point.

Also, did you like that clicking noise that Smokie was making, like unto the other episodes, like when Walt appeared, etc.?  (I think the Walt apparition had the clickies, anyway.  At least one of the other "hallucinations" had it.)

He probably said "You, all, are next."  So there, English major!  :)
