    At first I thought the jars are really history. However I recall that Egyptians stored the organs of dead people in jars to preserve them for the afterlife. Sure, they used clay jars, not mason jars... but maybe Jacob's or somebody's organ(s) is in one of them? Richard could have an organ or two in the jars- he's sort of immortal.

    Good point there! This could be part of the whole ancient-Egypt connection, for sure!

    I freaking love your sig, by the way, I laughed my ass off at it just now!

    Wow thanks for your support for my theory and my sig!!

    I'd be worried about them keeping in that heat there though.

    I finally sussed it out! Those cheeky monkeys at Bad Robot!

    The red jars in “Jacob’s cabin”—they had us thinking about what was in them, when we should have been thinking about the jars themselves!

    Those wily auteurs flipped an aphorism at us! Think about: when is a door not a door? When it is ajar! So flip it and you’ve got, “When is a jar not a jar?” “When it’s a door!”

    We had 5 and1/2 doors to choose from in that scene, but no one called out the Monty Halls of series TV. What was behind those doors?

    Let’s Make a Deal my tuckus!

    So the answer to the question 'who broke the ash circle' must be either Charlie or Claire. Evidence: Charlie had an invisible jar of peanut butter that he offered to Claire. At first she was skeptical, but then she saw the jar was ajar and she went for it! It was Claire all the time!

    I think the line was broken the whole time, it was the Man in Black who was inhabiting the cabin. Who knows why he was using it for but it suited his purposes.

    I was reminded of this thread the other day. Maybe you had to be there, but a thread started in 2007, rebooted in 2010, and still makes you think nine years later, now, that's some fun.
