- "With regards to Richard seeing Isabella on the Black Rock, it reminds of when the Smoke Monster and Eko had a staredown and then Eko saw his brother Yemi. When Smokie looked at Richard on the Black Rock, he was probably accessing his memories, so he could use them to manipulate Richard." — myfairlady93
- "Claire had a dream back in Season 1 (?) about a 'black rock'. I guess we assumed then that it meant the ship, but now it could have meant MIB's rock and she was always destined to be on his side?" — Jelly888
- "If [Jacob] brought the ship over to the island, why didn't he look for survivor's, but the MIB did?" — romaric
For more hypothesizing, just
- "MIB has said that he just wants to go home and since we don't know where home is, I wonder if his release from the island might be his release from life. The island does end up under water, right?!? Just like Richard wants to kill himself and can't, maybe MIB has the same intentions. He just wants to stop living forever." — mstrauss
- "I believe the flash sideways are more like dreams that the MIB is projecting on to the candidates. He will then tell the candidates that this is the lives that they can have (a lie of course) if they choose to do something evil." — Anonymous
- "Another question I have, how is the 70's bomb even relevant anymore, since it wasn't the 'energy' that really brought them there, but Jacob who brings people there, and since this whole thing has been happening loooong before the 1970s, why should that incident effect the history at all?" — zeze
- "BTW, isn't it obvious (or not) that Hurley will be the new guard of the island? Using the same "dirty" tricks as Jacob does..." — pianoteacher1
- "And where did the physical body of MIB go?" — Jelly888
