Episode 5x16 / Re: What happened when Juliet struck the nuke?

I agree that the white light was another time jump (possibly caused by the explosion), but I'm not sure about them returning to 2007.  I heard Ben (can't think of his real name) doing an interview on a local Orlando station (by phone) and when the DJ asked him if the group in 1977 would get back to 2007, he said, "I'm not sure you should be thinking that way."  Of course, he wouldn't elaborate on it any further.

Doesn't mean they won't all get back to the same time, but just not to the present time that they left.  I guess... If the explosion worked as planned, then they would return to Flight 815's time, not the actual present.  Jeez, I feel like I'm in a time warp myself.

Ben also mentioned in the interview that he and his wife discussed the issues of time travel and Faraday's Mom sending him back in time to be shot by her, and the whole idea that what's done is done... but what if it's not done yet, etc. etc. and he said they were totally confused too.  It was funny.

Just wanted to thank everyone for their replies. 

I do agree it appears to be more of a good against evil idea and I'm anxious to find out just who they are and what the feud is about.  I'm also intrigued by the idea that Jacob may not be the good one.  After all, I'm still trying to decide if Richard, Ben and Alana are good guys, or not.  What a great TV show this is. 

Episode 5x16 / What if they are not brothers?

Hope I'm not speculating on something already discussed, but I don't get to read everything on the site.

It seems everything I've read about Jacob and the man in black, immediately jumped to the conclusion that they were brothers in a big struggle against good/evil, loss of birthright, etc.  Maybe that's what the writers wanted us to believe and maybe that is in fact true. 

However, the man in black clearly wants Jacob dead for some reason and at one point says to Jacob "my dear friend" in a very sarcastic way as if he's trying to make a point that Jacob deserves to be dead.  Have you ever, or have you ever heard anyone else refer to a relative as a friend when they are really, really mad at them?  When you want to bring home the point that someone has done something terribly wrong to you... so wrong that you would wish them dead... the blood is thicker than water thing always wins out.  Even if your brother, sister, mother, father, cousin was in fact also your best friend, at a moment of hatred for that person's actions it is more common to say "my dear brother," "my dear father," my dear cousin," etc. in that totally disgusted tone that relays the "how could you do this to me, we're family" message.

So, I'm not convinced that they are brothers.  I'm not sure where that leaves this relationship and who they might be, but I'm leaning toward arch rivals who were once best friends, something like Caesar and Mark Anthony or Roman mythological gods like the statue might point to. 

Anyone else think the writer's wanted us to make this brother assumption to get us off track?
