Going to watch it now. I dvr it and wait 20 minutes so I can fast forward through the commercials. By the end I'm just about caught up.

It all makes perfect sense now, don't even need to see the last one.
I'm glad I stuck in there for all the episodes.

I guess we'll never know why Jacob looked like this in his cabin:

I have been following a feature called "Totally Lost" on Entertainment Week's website, and that answers all my questions - plus introduces about 100 new ones.

Check that out!

On ew.com, Doc Jensen believes that Ben's comment last night about "I thought I was summoning the monster, turns out he was summoning me" refers to the fact that it was MIB in the cabin misleading Ben, not Jacob. And that Widmore was trying to get back to help the island, not exploit it as Ben insisted. It makes sense.

If Jacob picked people who were lonely/flawed, why did sun spend all that time looking for her husband, only to find him and then they both die? Or is he still kicking? What happened to the crazy chick?

Why did Jacob's adopted mom cause all this trouble? If she is a good person, why did she kill his biological mother, never bother giving the other kid a name, kill all the villagers, and tick off her other adopted son enough so he killed her? It's her fault that Jacob flipped out and created the smoke monster.

This must sound utterly ridiculous to anyone not familiar with the show. It even looks weird to me to see it in writing.

If Kate becoming a mother was his reason for taking Kates name off the wall then why didn't he do the same for Sun?

The name Kwon was crossed off, probably referring to both of them. Before arriving on the island Sun cheated on Jin and their marriage was flawed and falling apart thus making them both candidates. However, after arriving on the island their love was rekindled ultimately being the reason the name Kwon was crossed off.

As for Jacob's adopted mother... I have no clue.

I may be totally wrong, however.

He picked flawed people that were LOST and had no real direction in their own lives.
As he observed each one of them and over time he came to know what ones could not handle the job, they were no longer "destined" to take over the protection of the island.
Call it collateral damage if you will.
Out of the few left, maybe, any one of them would be, could be, successful, but at the very end it would have to be the ONE person WILLING to take over.

Why could the smoke monster (brother) not leave as long as Jacob was alive?

If the "Dark" brother could not kill Jacob himself and he could become, visually, anyone he wanted, how could he, did he, he stab Jacob when in the body form of Lock?
He still was who he was.

How did Jacob get the power to give Richard everlasting life?

What is actually on the island to protect?

But it wasn't the MIB in the chair, either.

When Jacob selected Sun/Jin he was a jerk and she was going to leave him when they got to America, so at the selection time they were flawed/alone.

As far as Jabob's mom, If they answered why she did it, than they would have to answer why the person before her did whatever. She was protecting the light, and there was someone before her, and before that person. Some point they just let you know people have to protect the light.
