Mystery solved! Sorta. We now know that the numbers in the all-important Valenzetti Equation each stand for a potential Jacob replacement. Who should get the gig? Doc Jensen and Co. weigh in
CANDIDATE NAME: Locke
MOST LIKELY: John Locke
WHY HE SHOULD BE THE NEXT JACOB: He loved the Island, believed it was his destiny to be there, and can handle a diet of boar meat and palm frond water.
WHY HE SHOULDN'T BE THE NEXT JACOB: Easily manipulated by anti-Island smoke monster and can be easily distracted with button pushing. If his father should pop up as a ghost, he might get flustered. Or crippled. Oh, and he's dead. Jeff Jensen
