The “Lost” series finale gave many of its fans headaches — some would even say more headaches than answers. One of the mysteries left on the island was the Man In Black’s name. Just who was Jacob’s brother before he got all smoke-a-fied?
Jacob’s brother had a lot of fan-given nicknames (Smokey and Esau, for starters), but it turns out that MIB’s name actually was Samuel. After scrutinizing call sheets and looking through the Bible for clues, “Lost” fanatics had already speculated that this might be the case, but there was no confirmation until now.
And how do we know for sure? It’s on a freaking piece of furniture. “Samuel” is on Titus Welliver’s (who played MIB) chair, which is being auctioned off.
Whew! So glad we could solve one of the important mysteries of the island instead of crap like “How did Jacob and Samuel’s mom really get there?” and “Why does the entrance to the island’s glowy hole look like a vagina?”
Now I’m grumpy about the “Lost” finale again. Great. I’m going to watch this fantabulous cat video to feel better.
