LOST Thoughts: Across the Sea

May 12, 2010

In this episode, we were introduced to the mysterious woman who raised Jacob and the Man in Black from birth as if they were her own children. It’s amazing how much we’ve already learned about her in such a short amount of time, such as…

  • She might be Mother Nature, which would make Jacob and his seemingly-unnamed brother Snow Miser and Heat Miser, respectively.
  • She is particularly enamored with blunt force trauma to the head.
  • She is not enamored at all with pregnant women, especially post-delivery.
  • She is responsible for establishing the brothers’ lifelong “Spy vs. Spy” clothing motif. (Apparently, she didn’t have ready access to a set of horns and a halo.)
  • She can seal up a giant donkey wheel construction hole faster than an entire armada of backhoes.
  • She (like Jacob, many years later) is only suceptible to stabbing by an electromagnetically-charged magic dagger.
  • She distrusts humanity, but believes in the power of unrefrigerated island hooch.
  • Her homeschooling curriculum is more narrowly-focused and revisionist than what’s taught at a garden-variety Yearning for Zion compound.
  • She basically looked at Jacob in much the same way Mary Tyler Moore did Timothy Hutton in Ordinary People.
