Good vs Evil: Jacob & “Locke”

It’s been a while since I did a Good vs. Evil post, and I’ve put this one off for a long time.  I mostly want to write this now because it seems like everyone is grasping at straws trying to figure out if we’ve been misled, maybe Jacob isn’t as nice as we like to believe.  I think it’s possible that people have lost some perspective about the issues.

And one disclaimer before I continue.  I feel very strongly we can discuss whether someone is good or evil.  I know many people dislike it when I debate these things, they wants more vagueness, they don’t want their favorite characters pigeon-holed.  But I like drawing lines in the sand.  I want there to be barriers between good and evil actions.  In the end of this show there will be two side, and I don’t think they will both be good and both be evil.  I’m pretty sure there will be villains and there will be heroes.

And another thing, I have to write this post about Jacob and “Locke”/Smokey because they are undoubtedly on opposite sides, if I write about one of them then it affects the other one.

Good vs Evil: Eloise Hawking

506-ms-hawking-01

If you’ve been reading my blog then you probably already know what I’m going to say.  But let’s get on with it.

Over the last few months I’ve wrote a few Good vs. Evil posts on some the more mysterious characters.  I’ve analyzed Christian Shepard, Ben Linus and Charles Widmore.  In the future I’m going to write one about Jacob, but I’m delaying that one until we know more about him.

On to Ellie.  We hardly knew her before this season.  But this season has been all about Eloise Hawking, so let’s start overanalyzing.

Good vs. Evil – Christian Shepard

105-christian-03

I’m sure that Christian is one of the most important recurring characters on Lost.  He’s been around since the beginning and he’s been involved in some of the craziest storylines.  I want to look at his life, his post-life life, his role and his motives.

Good vs. Evil – Ben Linus

214-ben-01

Last week I wrote about Charles Widmore, discussing wheat we know about him so far and whether he’s good or evil.  This week I want to talk about his nemesis, Benjamin Linus.  I really suggest you check out Widmore’s page, it’s quite relevant to what I’m talking about today.

I’m going to go through Ben’s actions, as we’ve seen them, and judge him based on what we know.  There’s still a lot that we don’t know about the character but I think we have enough to make an informed decision.

Good vs. Evil – Charles Widmore

405-whidmore-01

I intended to talk about both Ben and Widmore but I had a surprising amount to say about Widmore so we’ll leave it at that.

I enjoy arguing for the “other side”.  When I see people assuming one thing I like to argue the other side, not because I believe it, just to add to the discussion.  I tend to think that most people believe that Widmore is evil.  We’re obviously meant to question that assumption all the time.  But in general we see these him do more “evil” acts rather than “good” acts.  Let’s try to look at the big picture though.
