The whispers have long been of intrigue to me, and I love reading the transcripts and trying to deduce theories from them. Now I think I have a half-decent one.
There's a third entity akin to Jacob and the Man in Black on The Island.
I do think this for a number of reasons, the first being the whispers wherein two male voices and a female voice have been heard by the Losties. Yet the female voice seems to be all for revealing herself or feels sad for our survivors, but is cautioned against it by the two males (Jacob & Man in Black) who seem to be more for manipulating things. I think she may be an underling, not as powerful as the men but still has a few tricks up her sleeve.
Secondly, I'd like to bring up Smokey. In the episode where Kate & Juliet are handcuffed to each other, they run off and get behind the security fence when The Monster approaches. Then as it does, it comes together from three separate whisps of smoke, similar to the small ones we saw when Locke was saved with dynamite in season one and before Eko was killed by it. The Monster also operates in three parts, being Jacob/Man in Black/Woman and they battle for control of it, hence it's differing actions (Woman in control when they meet Eko so she doesn't kill him, MIB in control later, sees no need for him, so kills him). The three can act independently as smoke trails but do not have enough power to do much when so. If you thought that bit was crazy wait for the next bit.
Thirdly, the female entity is...Christian. She was quick to take physical form of someone that Jacob/Man in Black might have used against her or one another, but doesn't seem powerful enough to keep it at all times. If she makes up part of The Monster, it would explain why such sounds are heard when Jack sees Christian on Island initially. When she can't keep a hold of the form, the Man in Black utilises him instead as distinguished by the black shoes worn when it's MIB and the white tennis ones worn when it's the woman. She's trying to influence the survivors without appearing herself and upsetting Jacob/MIB so this is the way she thinks it would work. What her goal would be with this, I have no idea, she's simply a theoretical character at this point, an idea.
Finally, I feel having a female lead to bring a rift between MIB & Jacob, or to oppose MIB with a loophole of her own would be fitting for the final season.

I fondly recall season three of Lost when some good things such as Juliet came around to the show and as a big Lost fanatic I was hyped to see the finale of the show, so went the usual route of staying up late for when the American airing was finished and awaiting it to come online so me and my friend could watch.
However this seemed to be taking longer than usual so we scoured Lostpedia (thinking that if we couldn't see the episode that day we could at least read how it finished) and had the flashforward reveal ruined early for myself which really took away from the episode.
Alas I am a spoiler junkie, so went on being manic with seasons four and five (with finale exceptions) and enjoyed it more. Now that we're getting to the final throws of the show I've decided to go spoiler free.
I've seen set reports and rumours crop up and have managed to resist the old temptation to read them, and I'm quite proud of myself for doing so. Hopefully some of you are going spoiler free too, just for these last few bits of Lost. It's going to be great.

So, it seems that the first episode of Lost season will be called “LA X”. I thought I’d blog my quick thoughts on the title.
This will make some people think that the reset worked, for better or worse as they would land in Los Angeles otherwise known as LAX.
However, that single space there makes me think otherwise, as if marked on a sheet of paper, to say that “LA” as an answer is incorrect and it did not work.
So, what do you think, did Jack’s plan work or not?

So, Lost is off the air, and you’ve done a rewatch, or you’ve started and need something else to cure the pain of missing Lost. I’m going to suggest a few things, feel free to comment on any more.
Lost Fan Club
If you’re not a member of Fanpop by now, why not? The Lost Fan Club has a nice quiz section, a section where you can put up Picks, which are opinion-based questions, or even Answers, which is where you can ask anything that has confused you about Lost. This is handy if you can’t remember a reference, or missed out what Jacob was or something similar.
I’ll do a few more of these during the hiatus, and hopefully you can use some of them.
