So... the opening scene. Jacob catches a fish. That fish was a herring. And it was RED! Just thought I'd share that lol.

You know, that might be a bigger clue than you think Griz. I don't know if you've ever seen the movie or play called "Ten little indians" but there is a scene that mentions a character getting eaten by a red herring, and that character is the one behind all of the murders. Hmmmmmmm

Finally a theory that I can get behind.  :D

Wikipedia: Esau... is also called "Edom", which means red. Genesis relates this directly to his selling his birthright for some "red lentil stew" (Gen. 25:30), and the book also makes a point of mentioning that he was red when he emerged from the womb (Gen 25:25). Nevertheless, this may be an example of retroactive nomenclature, as the land which was supposedly inhabited by his descendants, Edom, contains a great abundance of red rock.

Nice! So it was probably red for a reason. More clues that it is in fact Jacob and Esau?

yes i am now a member of the site I have been telling people about for YEARS! It all started with my insatiable need to view the investigations and read squad car numbers. Now, Ive seen Jacob, I've seen the statue, and I finally feel the need to post. This show rocks and I look forward to discussing and dissecting it further than it need be.
Bring it on.
