Is rain a symbol in Lost as it usually rains at a dramatic or tense moment? DrGiggles 08:44, 15 May 2007 (PDT)

Absolutely. There is already an article on Rain and its symbolism, so maybe this article just needs a brief summary and a link to the main article.--TechNic|talk|conts 08:56, 15 May 2007 (PDT)

I think this article should've been improved or something before it was featured. It seems like a lot of speculation to me.--Dorritjo 23:27, 25 June 2007 (PDT)

It is a common literary device for the surroundings to symbolize state of mind, or underscore current circumstances. For example, people experiencing chaotic internal strife are often in a wilderness setting. It would be interesting to track significant events and their locations on the island (and, perhaps, off).

bottle of wine: I seem to remember that...

Near the end of From the Beginning (6/9), we see MiB receive the bottle of wine from Jacob. We see Faraday-Locke staring at the island. Here's the symbolism, Jacob must put his credo of free will to test. He has exhausted his powers; as he said in season: until the end, it is all progress. MiB has been removed or escape from Locke by Faraday. He realizes that he has been "played" by Faraday. MiB drops the bottle of wine because MiB, it's his last weapon. Both Jacob and MiB will receive severe punishment if Faraday, Ben, Sawyer, Sayid, Walt, or Widmore. We got a peek at Jacob's fate in a world with a course correction by Faraday; In LA X the cork (island) does not float. Escape the island, Mr MiB and you'll lose your power. (smokie vs time traveling nuclear device). Symbolism: wine (not so evil), cork (does not float), bottle (another piece of glass breaks, just like Jack at the lighthouse, like James punching a mirror). In their struggle,Jacob and MiB have forgotten that they have allowed three cold killers, a wonder boy searching for his father's killer, a ruthless tycoon, and a fellow who thinks anything less than an atomic bomb is a water pistol. --Bel the dragon 22:52, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
