Maybe I'm just crazy (don't answer that
) but the animal image that leaps out of the fire in the sweat lodge looks more like a wolf
than a polar bear to me: http://gallery.lost-media.com/displa...m=1185&pos=222
So I started thinking, "Who is most fearful of a wolf? Who might need saving from a wolf?" Then it hit me, "SHEEP!"
Locke got the most agitated & fearful
in his airport vision when he saw Benry wanding Jack (SHEPARD). Is the "Shepherd" in most need of saving? Eko's stick always did remind me of a shepherd's staff.
I'm going to take a wild stab and say that Locke will save Jack. It would be his ultimate redemption
- to be the hero and save the one guy who has always gotten one over on him.
Ok, let's say I'm going the wrong way with the above theory....
Perhaps the animal appearance is a warning of a "wolf in sheep's clothing"
--- perhaps there is a spy
in camp? Is there another "other" keeping tabs on the Losties? Hurley is suspicious of Desmond. Has Desmond been turned
by the Others???
Lots to think about if you see the apparition as a wolf instead of a polar bear!!!
