LOST Theories - DarkUFO

Some interesting thoughts I've been having . . .

1. In "the Incident" Ilana asks Richard the question, "what lies in the shadow of the statue", and Richard replies, "Ille qui nos omnes servabit" (Latin for "He who will save us all."

She then reveals Locke's body.

I find it interesting that she asks "What" instead of "Who", and then Richard answers with a "Who". Interestingly enough, when you think about it, Locke at that point was a "What" AND a "Who".

"What" - He was a dead body. That fits into the category of a "thing" due to Locke's own words. He told Jack that the airline didn't really lose his father . . . They just lost his body. I think that the writers are telling us that the body is just a thing, and not really the person (or Soul).

"Who" - He WAS the "form" of John Locke, so this also fits the category of a "person". Thus the reason for Richard's answer . . .

2. In last week's episode "Dr. Linus", Richard tells Jack that he can't die because Jacob touched him. Once Jacob touches you, it's considered a gift. Jack, interestingly enough, does not reveal (maybe he doesn't recognize yet) that he has also been touched, BUT he is now a believer because of his experience at the lighthouse. He is a believer without knowing what will happen next. This is faith . . .

In the middle of all of this, I had a realization.

Locke was touched.

John Locke is not dead.

I believe that there is a strong possibility that we will see the most amazing finale ever on a TV show. Light Locke vs. Dark Locke. Somehow, I think that the real John Locke will return/resurrect in the final two episodes in an incredible way and fashion. The battle between good and evil may come down to a depiction of the internal struggle each man/woman goes through in this life, how our circumstances shape us and ultimately how it is our choices that determine where we end up.

I guess we'll see.
