Jacob has made strides to bring someone to the Island, as seen in Lighthouse. Since the lighthouse is now broken, and Jacob told Hurley that this person would have to find a new way to the Island, it seems to follow that Widmore is the man Jacob was bringing to the Island since Widmore was in a submarine ( a vessel that is not guided by lighthouses). Since Ben was somewhat naive in having removed Widmore from power (a man who had been on the Island years before Ben showed up), it might seem that, although Ben and Widmore are at odds, Jacob and Widmore are not. Since Jacob was "right" about Ben, it makes sense that Jacob would need someone who might know better. Anyone agree with me, or is there evidence to the contrary? --Atomic Mystro 04:05, March 10, 2010 (UTC)
