Thanks Neal. He was speaking Latin?

Yes...she also referred to Richard as Ricardus, which would mean he's been there since the time of Rome.

Remeber Juliet also said that all the others are fluent in Latin.

Great finale.  Jacob is now my favorite character.  I hope we see more of him.

Cool. Now the question is, was he pronouncing the Latin at it was original spoken, or using the modern, incorrect, accent?  ;)

I took Latin in high school and it sounded like he was speaking it properly.

I've also been to a couple of Catholic masses done in latin and it sounded similar.

I wonder if anyone ever thought that maybe Miles is right. That setting off the bomb causes the problem and doesn't get rid of it? Somehow since we have an another season that the bomb made things worst.

I'm not so sure about that.  My theory is that Jacob is God and the other one trying to kill him is the Devil.  The Devil put a plan in motion where he was able to manipulate everyone so he could get Ben into the base of the statue to kill Jacob.

However, Jacob went through the world and touched the lives of the people he would need to fix things and save himself.

Damn, it's going to be a long wait until February!   >:(

That's the modern accent then. Nobody ever goes for the original pronunciation.  :P

Just put an Italian accent on it...end it with Aht's-a-matta-wit-you, and you're golden!   :D

That's pretty much my theory on this as well, though I'm not sure that it's God and the Devil.  I thought the statue looked kind of Egyptian, so maybe two different "Gods" or immortals or something.  It seemed to me like he was there for very pivotal times in everyone's lives that helped shape who they become (influencing Kate's morals, Helping Sawyer write his letter and influencing his "Done is Done" philosophy, etc.)  The only interaction I thought was strange was the talk with Jack.  It didn't seem like he did anything other than get him a candy bar, but maybe I missed something, or maybe Jack was already on the right path?

I think the statue is of Sobek

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sobek

Though still trying to find a connection...

My theory still stands the island is Mu

...carbon stars with ancient satellites colonized by sentient fungi. Gas giants inhabited by vast meteorological intelligences. Worlds stretched thin across the membranes where dimensions intersect...

That's pretty interesting...

"Sobek's ambiguous nature led some Egyptians to believe that he was a repairer of evil that had been done, rather than a force for good in itself, for example, going to Duat to restore damage done to the dead as a result of their form of death. He was also said to call on suitable gods and goddesses required for protecting people in situation, effectively having a more distant role, nudging things along, rather than taking an active part."

Good call on the Egyptian twist...I threw God and the Devil out there, but it could most definitely be two opposing Egyptian gods.

I am trying so hard right now to NOT watch the leaked premiere online and to NOT troll for spoilers...   :-X

Can't wait until tomorrow to see if Juliet really did reset time.   :D
