" I empathize with MiB more than I do with Jakob. I agree with his earlier verdict that his mother was crazy. Prophecy or not, MiB was human and I relate to human qualities. Whether or not she (the adoptive mother) was blessed or if Jakob was endowed with a blessing is irrelevant to me. Clearly these "special" people are trained to be deceitful and manipulative. Lying and controlling people's lives I would never consider to be the quality of a good person. And I cannot be convinced that all of the lying Jakob and his followers have done were for the greater good. Based on that logic, I can't imagine that the fabric of reality must be maintained by lying, killing and manipulating peoples lives. Still, it was an interesting story, but I feel I'm rooting for what the show wants me to think are the "bad guys." "
