The village was found dead so quickly in such a short space of time just like the smoke monster would kill like he killed the Japanese man and his followers Mother was killed in the same by her son before she could utter a word just like the Japanese man instructed Sayid to kill Locke with dagger before Locke has a chance to speak she even thanks her son when he kills her because now she is free released from her responsibility as smoke monster She wants both boys to stay one to represent dark the other light Jacob is looking for his replacement for the island and Locke wants to kill all potential candidates interesting theory check it out on abc. com under it will blow your mind
I agree it seems pretty extreme that the mother would be able to kill the entire village by herself.
The smoke monster never killed with fire before. the mother also seem to have knoweledge of things that she shouldn't, like knowing Jacob and MIB were playing a game, knowing that Jacobs was visiting MIB's village.
It could be that the smoke monster was posing as the mother.
