#67: The Whispers = Garden of Eden

The whispers point to the story of Cain and Abel—sons of Adam and Eve. Cain killed Abel, and it says that Abel’s blood cried out from the ground. The whispers are from some of those who have died on the show. One obvious whisper is from Ben’s mother. She died in childbirth, and if you read through the whisper transcripts, you will see that one voice is clearly identified as Ben’s mother when Ben is shown chasing her into the forest and he gets stopped by the sonic fence. She is dead, and we now hear her voice in the whispers. Another Adam and Eve connection.

Of course. Abel was murdered by Cain, Ben's mom was, um, murdered by, um, Ben. And both, you know -- whisper. How could I have missed something as obvious as that?
