When was it clearly established that the smoke monster can take human form? Forever people have been promoting this theory but has there been an official word on it?

@Eve "Does anyone else see any similarities between Lost and Ayn Rand's novels "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead"?" As a fan of both those books and this show, my answer is no. At least nothing in the story (unless I'm missing something). Oh and if the bomb going off prevents the incident and that keeps the plane from crashing, then shouldn't that undo them coming back in time to prevent the incident? Typical time travel paradox.

How about we call he who has no name, 'Yang' - the balance to Jacob as 'Yin'. I'm not sure either is good or evil yet. As for what comes next, I agree with the theory that our intrepid time travelers return to current time (whatever that is supposed to be) and I'm not convinced Juliette is dead. Who is to say the flash "blast" was the bomb going off? I can see the opening for the next season, close-up on Jack's eye, pull back and he's on the edge of the Swan station crater. He abruptly sits up and we see the other travelers scattered around the perimeter with Juliette in the center, shaking it off.

Quick follow-up, I figured out how to reset the Gel. 1) Remove the ants. I turned the Antworks Stand upside down and slid the gel and ants into a larger plastic (Tupperware) tub. If the Gel doesn’t slide easily, you may need to warm the sides. 2) Discard the greenish (sort of moldy looking) gel as this mostly has their crap in it. 2) Remove the remaining ants from the gel and break it into chunks in a glass measuring cup (or some easy to pour from, microwaveable container) 3) Add a little hot water and break up the gel into a chunky paste. 4) Heat in the microwave until it has a syrup consistency. It took me about 4 tries at 1 minute each. I would stir it up between each 1 minute heating. Note: the Gel really needs to be syrup like before you pour so if you need, add just a little more water. 5) Pour into the Antworks stand and let cool overnight. You might see air bubbles but they should work their way out as it cools. 6) Add ants to taste. My Girls started digging almost right away. I'm so mean. :)

I got one of these and the first week kicked ass. (Got the mail order brides in less than a week). After 7 days they were done - meaning they just sleep all the time and aren't making any new tunnels. And it's been like that for the last 10 or so days easily. Mind you it was too cool to watch them build but what the hell triggered them to stop digging?(there's tons of untouched gel) I'm thinking of getting them out and trying to reset the gel like you would a candel, heat the thing in a pot of hot water. Anyone try this sort of thing yet?
