Cooper's Death vs. Jacob's Death
« on: May 14, 2009, 07:32:40 PM »
Probably means little in the greater scheme of things, but I was thinking about similarities & differences between the deaths of Cooper and Jacob.

Locke manipulates Sawyer into killing Cooper.
"Locke" manipulates Ben into killing Jacob.

Sawyer kills Cooper to redress past grievances & past deceptions.
Ben kills Jacob to redress past grievances & past deceptions(?).

Cooper was a con man.
Cooper's killer (Sawyer) was a con man.

Jacob is perhaps a con man or a phoney of sorts (we don't know yet)
Jacob's killer (Ben) is probably, until now, the show's ultimate con man.
