The Kids: Emma and Zack
« on: March 07, 2008, 12:57:05 AM »
Not really a lot here, just thought it was interesting that they were brought back up again.  We haven't seen them since Jack was locked up last year (at least that is the last I remember).  Do you think they will play a role coming up or just tying together the back story?

I kind of felt this epsiode overall was a bit of a letdown, but I did like the whole "stroll down Other memory lane" - bringing back Mr. Friendly, Goodwin, mentioning the kids, and sort of tying in some of the stuff happening in Othertown while the events of the Losties and Tailies were unfolding in seasons one and two.

I don't know how much they'll figure into the future storyline. I guess they should be at the "temple" with the rest of the Others, if we ever get to catch up with them. I guess we're still waiting for Cane to be officially cancelled so we can get the actor who played Richard back in the fold.

The important part about the kids is that they were on the "list" given by Jacob. Ben at least hints that the kids were not taken because the can't have children, or it was a better place for them but because they were on the list.

Right.  Makes me wonder why Jack wasn't on the list.

Maybe Jacob did not want Ben saved.

I think it's like them showing us Vincent, to remind us of things we forget. Everytime I see him I am like "Oh yeah they have a dog"

Isn't it Christmas Eve or even Christmas day on the show? Christmas needs kids so we will see them getting their presents? I hope the others celebrate Christmas...

This is a good point.  Do you think maybe that's why Ben is not getting all the information from Jacob that he used to, and why he is so threatened by John and Hurley being able to hear him?

If Jacob didn't put Jack on the list, and that means he didn't want Ben to live, then he's probably not all that happy that Ben is still around.  Maybe Ben had to imprison him in the shack, and that's why Jacob asked for Locke to help him.

Only those with a clear mind and free will can hear Jacob. That's why they want kids. Kids are naturally free minded and have not been exposed to doing evil. Think of the people on the island who have heard or seen Jacob.
There's only one left that can hear and see Jacob it seems now and that's Hurley.

Hmm... I don't recall Hurley hearing Jacob say anything.

And I'm of the opinion that he didn't see Jacob either. We saw "Christian" in the rocker, whereas the one time we saw Jacob he was in the chair behind the table. I reckon Christian was just visiting.
