Lost Discussion Group: "They're Coming."

It’s the first Wednesday after Memorial Day, and that means time to revive Lost Discussion Group for the summer. There seemed to be enough questions raised by this season’s Jacob-centric finale to sustain LDG for a season, at least, and I’ll kick it off with a simple one: 


That is, who is Jacob referring to when he says, “They’re coming”? Why does this seem to upset Esau/unLocke so much when he says it? What are “they” coming to do? And what do you think, ultimately, is the source of the deadly friction between Jacob and Esau in the first place? Why are they on the Island, and why can’t they just enjoy some fried fish and coconuts and get along?
