Going along with my LOST Trinity theory to explain how Island LOST manifests itself, I’m realizing, especially after last night, there there are now 3 groups or “Teams” on the Island.
Last night we met Bram off-island for the first time. We got to know a little about him last week when he was helping Ilana start a ‘takeover’ with a huge stash of guns (they were on the Ajira Airways Flight 316 that crashed on the island). In both scenes, they each asked a person not in their group, “What lies in the shadow of the statue?”.
So of course this makes me (not just me) wonder who are they and what are they up to? The reference to the statue makes us think of the Anubis statue and the ties to perhaps an ancient Island LOST people.
What what I’m really suspecting now is that they are part of a new group in play for the Island. You see, it’s always been Ben vs Charles, Jack vs Locke, etc. But what if the “shadow statue people” are the new (old) group in town? Maybe the Island Trinity had it’s people living there until the outside world got involved.
Think of it with this analogy: The “shadow statue people” are like Native Americans while Ben v Charles are like the British v US Colonies in the Revolutionary War (it’s not important which side is which). In other words, two groups of people fighting over land that both think it’s theirs because they found it and took it from the people who already lived there. Imagine the US Native Americans rising up during the Revolutionary War to fight both the US and Britains. I think that’s where we might just be going.
