Fakemommy and Season 6 schizophrenia

Join us for another look at Across the Sea. Through our discussion and listener feedback, we’ll talk more in-depth about the character and characteristics of Jacob, MIB, and fakemommy, as well as the light, protecting the island, and trying to leave the island. We also review the results of our character award poll, our “what are you doing May 24th” poll, and our “whose side are you on” poll. Runtime 1:14:49

Check out the interview on Lost Causes with Kenton Duty that I was able to call in on! (MILD SPOILERS, so wait to listen til after the finale if you’re worried!)

    I left a voice mail wednesday pretty annoyed I didnt get a shout out on the podcast, I had another little theory, Dogen says earlier on in the season that each man has a scale in them for good and evil. Crazy mom saw more good in jacob because he didnt question much about decisions made or what the island was, young mib did question alot and was curious about everything on the island, crazy mom always saw something inside mib maybe not evil but something that wasnt usually. Because she manipulated him over the years to leave her find the truth and eventually killing his people, it transformed mib into a different person then he was, but still had the ability to kill inside him if he was pushed the wrong way. I think she had to do this because only someone with more good then evil inside could protect the island. I think when mib killed the mother and he snapped it moved the scale of good to more evil. He still seemed remorse after he killed the mother and jacob showed emotion after his fake mother was dead even though it wasnt his real mother and she killed there mother. I think because mib killed his mother it tipped the scale and when jacob put him into the light thats why he came out as smokey because it was his evilness that came out in him. And as others have said the mother knew that mib wanted to leave but what would be worse then death, mib turn into smoke have no body very little emotions, live for ever and not be able to leave the island. I still think we might see white smoke on the show if someone with more good and done more good in there life would come out either as white smoke or come out alive prehaps, hope this gets a mention in the next podcast really do enjoy you podcasts.

    Hi Liam — I am so sorry about the voicemail, but I do not seem to have one from you! I hope the numbers I’ve posted with the blog posts have been accurate. Now I’m afraid your voicemail may have gone to a wrong number. I’m really sorry! If I’d known you tried to call, we definitely would have given you a shout-out!

    I like your idea you wrote about above with the scale and each of the boys having a balance within them. White smoke would be cool to see; my question would be…how would it get made? If Jacob went into a similar place full of energy? It was interesting to me to see MIB cry after he stabbed his mother, and he looked so scared, too! I guess he still loved her and regretted what he had to do in some way, even though it was only done for his selfish desire to leave the island.

    Sorry I went on a tyrant there sounded like the smoke monster being selfish, and i even voted for him on the character poll the other week lol. Yer I left a voicemail to the dropio thing with the extension number gave, it was probably a bit too long and it was me talking about locke being manipulted to the very last so mib could get his body and also what i found very intresting was that mib,locke & ben have all died on or off the island and also have been exposed to the light mib was put through the light and ben and locke were very near the light when they turned the frozen donkey weheel intresting to note that dont think anyone said it. I was kinda hoping there would be white smoke just so it would be cool to see.
    I didnt like the episode the first time around because I found it fairy tall and too faith orientated, i mean a light in a cave come one right, but once i watched it once again on my own and then with my dad again i didnt mind it because i appreciated the story and what they seem they are trying to represent with light. I think there trying to represent the light is good inside all of us, but if we want more off goodness and get greedy we become corrupt and our soul becomes evil inside. I think mib always seemed to be the curious one when growing up and i still dont get why if he left before smoke he would cause choas, he was only a baby brought to the island, and what is his end game, does he want to destroy the island and leave is he like the snake in the garden of eden, like if you help me do all this i can offer you this, but the sacrifice of adam and eve was banished out of the garden of eden. It seems like thats what the flashsideways could possible represent for many of the characters.

    Jack has a kid and a decent relationship with him, but yet doesnt have a solid relationship with a women, John Locke has a relationship with a women he loves but cant walk. There are many more parrallels for every character in the show what they have and cant have or dont have. Is the flashsideways a deal they make to destroy the island so mib can leave and end jacobs game, i mean whats mib going to do when he leaves, go shoot a few games of pool and go to a yankees game lol well great podcast very refreshing to see women podcast who are intelligent and bring humor to the show. Hope to get a shout out next episode, the plan is to listen to more podcasts from your archive over the summer. All the best finale should be awesome, cos after the season 5 finale i was like what the fuck!!!! My dad is into the show, but i ask him questions and hes like i dont know why smokey came out as black smoke lol he just watches it for the entertainment. 8 days to the finale, i hope i can tempt him to stay up late over here in ireland and stream it from the internet lol. Thanks anna for the reply say hello to denise!!!!

    Hey again I red something quite intresting about the episode did mother know that claudia was going to have 2 babies one to become the protector of the island and the other to eventually kill her, it kinda of makes sense that she did know this, because if claudia had raised them herself on the island then mother would live for ever and be protector which she doesnt seem to want any longer and mib wouldnt have killed her she would have lived for ever, also did she bring claudia to the island and not the island? I will have more theories later maybe heard dianna on the mythoscast from last night good to here your insight would love to get on one of these skype calls before the finale would be awesome

    Also another thought was that if you are the protector of the island can you make your own rules, it seems evident so that you can because mother said i have made it so you cant kill each other, i dont know exactly how but thats just a thought.
