'Ab Aeterno' or 'since the beginning of time' was tonight's episode of LOST. We see the beginning story of Richard, the man who never ages.
I have to say that tonight's episode felt, well...simple. Did I really just type that about a LOST episode??
We have the man in black and Jacob sitting on an island 'since the beginning of time'. The man in black REALLY wants to get off the island but he can not do so unless Jacob is dead. Jacob, who 'has a thing for numbers (Ha!), brings people to the island via shipwreck or plane crash. The man in black believes he can corrupt these people because it is in everyones nature to do so and Jacob disagrees.
The man in black is also the smoke monster. Did I miss this...but why didn't he stay in the man in blacks body? Why did he jump into Locke's body?
I remember reading somewhere that the fact that some on the island had their 'constant' was going to play a pretty big role. Is that why the smoke monster could not/did not kill Richard when he crashed onto the island? Because Isabella was his constant?
It appears as though Flocke is trying to get off the island and team Jacob needs to stop that from happening. I can not wait for next week!
