Bandar Ceme OnlineAfter ΓÇ£NotLockeΓÇ¥ (aka the Smoke Monster) orchestrated JacobΓÇÖs death, why didnΓÇÖt he just turn around and kill Ben?
ThatΓÇÖs a good question and I wondered it myself. But there is a reason why he canΓÇÖt do that.
Does Ben suspect he has done a bad thing by killing Jacob?
I really donΓÇÖt think Ben indulges in regrets. WeΓÇÖve seen him make huge, possibly bad choices all through his life, but he just keeps moving forward. It may not be a good trait, but it is his.
We like to assign the trait of ΓÇ£goodΓÇ¥ to Jacob, in contrast to the apparently evil ΓÇ£Man in Black.ΓÇ¥ Yet Jacob, with his dismissive ΓÇ£What about you?ΓÇ¥ comment to Ben, came off as, well, a uncompassionate tool. Maybe heΓÇÖs not quite as good as we believe?
ThatΓÇÖs what I think, also ΓÇô or at least his aktivitas is more complicated than we can know. ItΓÇÖs certainly not as simple as we thought. And yes, [Jacob] rather begs for his own death in a way.
With his dying breath, Jacob famously said to NotLocke, ΓÇ£TheyΓÇÖre coming.ΓÇ¥ How long until we find out who ΓÇ£theyΓÇ¥ are?
It will be a while, unless IΓÇÖm missing something. IΓÇÖm not yet sure what that remark means. [‘Lost’ was filming its 13th episode at the time of this interview.]
Might we see Ben in the ΓÇ£flash-sidewaysΓÇ¥ reality where Flight 815 arrived in Los Angeles safely?
OhΓÇª. ThatΓÇÖs a hard one to answer because these dimensions of time and space areΓÇª porous. And I think thatΓÇÖs about as much as I should say.
