Doc Jensen has some very interesting stuff today. Belated but interesting.
One of the most interesting is that Smokey is Fear Incarnate. That leads into all in kinds of interesting directions.
Another is the idea that everything Smokey is doing is to get the candidates killed, since he cannot do it himself. Hence, his provocation of the war with Widmore (Jensen even suggests that they are in cahoots [I love an excuse to use cahoots in a sentence]). . He cannot be harmed by artillery. But, wait, he saved Jack, so he needs the Candidates now but not later? I am sooo confused.
More applied Star Wars analysis! Always a good thing. Jensen considers Sawyer's confusion about Anakin, and suggests that Sawyer only saw the original. Anakin's name is prominent, obviously in the prequels (we can go back and talk about their limits some other time. Wait, I already did.) But it is also mentioned in Return of the Jedi, and so that redemptive turn of which Hurley speaks Sawyer gets not.
And people keep referring to rockets. I am pretty sure they are artillery shells. Not that it matters much.
