Before arriving at the cabin, Locke discovered a ring of ash surrounding the perimeter. This ash appeared identical to that used by the Others to protect the Temple from the Man in Black in Season 6. {{crossref}} On entering, Ben and Locke found the room initially appeared empty, but as Locke prepared to leave the Cabin, he heard a voice whisper, "Help me." Believing the voice to be a deception on Ben's part, Locke turned on his flashlight. Immediately the cabin began to shake, jars of liquid flew across the room and the lamp was knocked over and set aflame. Ben grabbed an apparently empty rocking chair, telling "Jacob" that he had had his fun and needed to stop, before he was thrown against the wall by a mysterious force. In looking back across the room, Locke briefly observed a shadowy figure with shaggy hair and tattered clothing sitting in the chair. {{crossref}} Ben later confessed that he had never seen Jacob in all his time as leader of the Others. He explained to Locke that he had been putting on an elaborate deception at the cabin but was just as surprised as Locke when the chaos erupted. {{crossref}} ==Day 91 (Season 4)== While hiking to the barracks with Locke's group, Hurley was separated and stumbled across the cabin. The door opened slowly, apparently of its own accord, and Hurley stepped onto the porch and looked in the window. Christian Shephard could clearly be seen sitting in the chair, still wearing his suit and white sneakers. Presumably, this was the Man in Black in Christian's form. Suddenly, a second figure appeared at the window, only their eye visible, staring at Hurley. The identity of this second figure is unknown. It is unlikely this was also the Man in Black, since he was visible as Christian in the cabin at the same time. {{crossref}} ==Trivia== *Prop manager Rob Kyker played the role of the mysterious figure in {{ep}}. *Simon Elbling is the actor whose eye is seen in {{ep}}. {{Source needed}} He would later appear as Glenn (Some Like It Hoth){{ep}}. *Carlton Cuse voiced the mysterious figure. *E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos stated that this figure was the Man in Black in Christian Shephard's form and that John Terry provided his voice. http//www.eonline.com/uberblog/watch_with_kristin/b182505_lost_want_know_man_in_blacks_real_name.html ''E! Online'' Lost Want to Know the Man in Black's Real Name? Get the Answer to That and More! Kristen Dos Santos, May 24, 2010 This is incorrect, as Carlton Cuse provided the voice. Also, in the interview, Kristin was confused about the episode in question. She referred to {{ep}} instead of {{ep}}. It was already known that one of the figures seen by Hurley in {{ep}} was Christian. The second's identity remained in question. ==References== {{reflist}} CategoryUnnamed characters CategoryUnsolved
