MIB is stuck forever (well at least until the Jacob replacement candidate steps into the Jacob role) in Locke's form. He can be smokey or Locke - that's it! No more change forms until Jacob's replacement has officially taken over. Per Darlton, MIB became stuck in Locke's form the moment Jacob was killed. Why? I have no idea...... maybe that is an episode 15 reveal. So, whomever Hurley sees, should be the dead person until their is a new Jacob.Originally Posted by SQUATMAN;3881408;
My point in mentioning the MIB not being able to cross the ocean and transform into Christian when he told Michael that he was through or could go now....... was that there was a plot inconsistency. How did Christian/MIB/smokey manage to appear to Michael?
Although having thought about it, I guess he could have walked onto the boat, or hidden in Christian's form mysteriously, but then he must have jumped back off the boat when it exploded..... Plot inconsistency is probably the best explanation.
I was not blown away by the last episode, and agree the final reunite between Jin and Sun was the best part and knowing that Sun did not lose the baby. I wonder if Juliet was the one that saved her baby? In the Alt, Juliet might also be a surgeon and not a researcher MD.
So, Jack was the "last recruit"...... and is probably also the Candidate. I guess it will be between Locke and Jack in final standoff afterall.
