Lost review: Follow the leader
So Moses Locke is leading the Israelites Islanders to see Yahweh Jacob. In Exodus, that little trip ended with the Israelites deciding that they were OK with the former arrangement of Moses as a go-betweener but apparently, Lost is going about things a bit differently since unlike his Biblical inspiration, Locke wants to kill the Island deity.

Hubby was a bit miffed about this because he had this theory that Locke was Jacob: that he had transcended after his death and that was why he had conveniently disappeared from Ben’s perspective when Alex-who-was-not-Alex threatened Ben; and that was what Ben meant when he said, “something was coming out of the jungle which I can’t control” and that thing was Locke. Hubby is also extremely miffed about Kate’s motives: the last episode, she defied Sawyer et al and led Daniel Farraday to the Others (and to his death); then now, she’s turning her back on Jack and Eloise Hawkins because she doesn’t want them to carry out Daniel’s plan?

Current Mood: amused amused

LOL at the biblical comparisons! :)

Who is the Island deity? I don't watch Lost, but your summaries sound interesting.

Your icon is to die for! :D :D

I'm guessing the Island deity is Jacob, since he has a Temple and everything, and my husband's theory was that Locke is has always been Jacob's incarnation but he didn't realize it until after he died... But that's just a guess.

Hee, thanks! I love Sokka and Suki, and the icon was LOLarious, so I had to snag it. :D fialleril made the icon.

Your Sokka *facepalm* icon is real cool too. Ahh, my love for Sokka knows no bounds.

How can Locke be Jacob's incarnation? The idea of Jacob being the deity because he has a Temple is a good idea.

Sokka FTW!

Do you know that part of the failtastic live-action film is going to have a more-srs!Sokka? M Night was waxing poetic about all the improvements he's going to make to the cartoon. I'm not even in a position to defend the show creators, Mike & Bryan because they've obviously sold their conscience for a couple of bucks.

I’ll ask my hubby because that’s his theory, but I think he got the idea from all the Gospel parallels in Locke’s story this season: he has to die for the Island and he is brought to life again; he is also betrayed by one of his ‘followers’ (using the term loosely) and he is doubted by another. There’s even an episode this season where a character actually points out all the parallels.

And this is one of the reasons why I never managed to watch Lost. ;)
