Commercial Comments: No, I have no idea if CJ is a Smoke Monster. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me, given that later in the episode we see her corpse, but she is killed according to certain rules, so what do I know? Whatevs. Commercial over.
Thunder rumbles as CJ leads Jacob through the jungle. When he notes the coming storm, CJ tells him to go gather some firewood before the rain starts. As he walks off, she says, "Jacob -- be careful." He turns and smiles at her. "I'll see you back home."
Rape Caves: CJ arrives home to find a lit torch at her door, a fire burning in her fire pit, her tapestry destroyed and the place generally in shambles. As she surveys the damage, she spots the Senet board lying on the ground. Kneeling to examine it, she opens the little built-in drawer and removes two stones: one white; one black. It's the black one that catches her eye. She holds it up -- enchanted -- and is gazing at it still when it happens. Dogen's dagger is plunged into her back and straight through; the tip exits via her chest. As the camera pans back to reveal Esau, CJ rises to her feet, but cannot stand erect. When she falls, she lands on her back and tries to speak, but the words blur into nothingness. Esau is at her side in an instant. "Why wouldn't you let me leave, mother?" CJ: "Because I -- I love you." He's moved by this. CJ chokes out a soft laugh. "Thank you," and with that, she's dead. Esau dissolves into tears. He's still crying when Jacob returns. "What did you do?" Esau tries to explain himself, but Jacob's infamous temper flares. He rushes and tackles Esau, and proceeds to beat the tar out of him. Again.
Jacob drags his barely conscious brother to his feet and out into the jungle. Esau doesn't resist but he does plead his case. "Hey, don't do this. She burned them. She was crazy. She burned them all!" When that doesn't sway the angry young man, Esau morphs into a total rules lawyer. "You can't kill me, Jacob. She made it that way. You can't." Jacob says, "Don't worry brother, I'm not going to kill you," and with that, continues to march Esau's ass all the way to the Island's vagina. When they reach the mouth, he throws Esau in the stream. Once he realizes where they are, Esau says: "She brought you back here?" Jacob confirms this and explains that he now has to protect it. He then grabs Esau by the neck and drags him up to his feet again. "You want to find the light? You want to leave this place, brother? Then go." With that, Jacob casts his twin back into the water. Face down, Esau is caught up in the current, which carries him inside the cave. Somewhere, CJ's ghost sings: "Don't go chasing waterfalls; please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to," but it's too late. He crashes down and over the waterfall. On the banks, Jacob's ire turns to fear and then horror at what his temper hath wrought, but he ain't seen nothing yet. The light dims, goes out, or is at least obscured. It's obscured by the HUGE PLUME OF BLACK SMOKE that rushes out of the Island's lady parts -- knocking Jacob flat on his tantrum-prone tush. Smokey -- born, reborn or aroused -- rushes up to the sky, then disappears in the trees.
