My New L O S T Theory

I haven’t heard anyone say this but I’d like to know if anyone is thinking it.


This week on LOST, Allison Janney was introduced as the “mother” of our two twins with the black and white wardrobe.

Allison kills the real mother of the twins when she works as a midwife and bashes her head in with a rock. Dead mom appears later in the episode to reveal the true lineage to the boy in black.

Early in the episode, faux momma introduces Jacob to a tunnel with incredible light pouring forth. She guards it. One day, he will guard it.

No one can enter the light because something way worse than death would happen. That something is revealed when Jacob throws his brother into the light and * poof * out comes the smoke monster.

Could the light be coming from Eden’s forbidden tree? The knowledge of good and evil?

In Jewish folklore Lilith is the name of Adam’s first wife, who was created at the same time and same earth as Adam. She left Adam after she refused to become subservient to Adam and then would not return to the Garden of Eden. Some say she was banished. She is most often described as a demon-lady. She has even appeared as a screech owl in stories of old.

A screech owl—you know, like a giant bird that flies at night making strange noises.

Other stories say Adam had a second wife before Eve. Stories describe her as being rejected by Adam because he watched her creation out of dust and couldn’t bear to look at her. She was sent away—unnamed. She became the caretaker of rejects and outcasts.

Any of this sounding familiar?

The Lilith myth is crazy fascinating. It is also said Lilith mated with the archangel, Samael. Samael is a seducer but he is also described as both good and evil. He is also said to be the guardian of Esau. You know, Esau, the brother of . . . Jacob. He is also said to be the angel who wrestled Jacob.

Is this new character, Lilith?

Is this new character Adam's second unnamed wife?

Is the island where she was banished?

Is she forbidden to enter the light much like the edict of Eden?

Is she upset about those who have come to the island because they have been birthed of Adam and Eve?

Did she murder a daughter of Eve and claim the children as her own to get back at Eve?

Do mothers die in childbirth on the island and do babies not survive because they are born of Eden and children of Adam and Eve?

Is the only way off the island for the Man in Black to inhabit the body of a son of Adam?

Do all mothers die in childbirth because Lilith/or the second wife cursed the island after the murder of the boys’ real mom?
