Jeff Jensen has a great preview of what to expect in “Man Behind the Curtain” over at EW.com, and I’m especially intrigued by the following:
LINDELOF: More importantly, we meet Jacob — the elusive, unseen, presumed leader of The Others — for the first time. This is a character who is every bit as significant to our universe as the Emperor was to the Star Wars universe. Jacob is a guy who is going to have a very significant ongoing sort of story value in our show.
And lest you thinking I’m wussing out by just giving you reheated goods — here’s a dish of freshly caught coy, just for you:
”Locke will hear two words tonight,” says Lindelof. ”Those words, and the fact that he hears them, will change his course on the island forever.”
What are those two words? My guess is “Welcome Back”
