I don't hate Jacob. I hate Jacob vs. Locke. Cuz I am booooooored with Locke. If Jacob exists apart from Locke and Ben, he's fine, imho. The Man in Black/Esau is so much more interesting to me, at this point, than Locke. (Flocke, Smocke, Mocke, w/e.)
Richard is exceedingly hot, but we already knew that. I'm a fan of the beard, tho.
Also, was there every a group of people who had less idea of what to do next? They really all have become puppets!
I don't know what I'm going to poll about for this ep...
