Background: The Book of Enoch

Over the last couple of episodes, especially "Face Off", I have been working on a theory behind the show, in order to try to predict what "The Event" is, and key points behind the story.

My current theory is that "The Event" is based on The Book of Enoch. If you've never heard of it, it's not considered official canon in either the Christian or Jewish Old Testaments, but it is considered canon in Ethiopian and Eritrean denominations. Within the Book of Enoch is "The Book of the Watchers", angels who fathered the Nephilim by mating with human females. I'll explain the Nephilim elsewhere.

Before I tell you my current theory, I should give you a background on the Book of Enoch and how I understand it. I want to explain that I am not a biblical scholar, nor have I read all of the Enoch myself (I have read some of it that I was able to find online). I am basing this on what I have read, on interpretations I have read, and watched from online sources. Please don't take this background as an explanation of The Book of Enoch. It's not meant to be. It's simply what I am using to explain the basis of my theory of what is going on in The Event.

As recorded in the Bible, Enoch is the great-grandfather of Noah. So, Enoch could be telling the story of Noah, but there are several parallels to The Event, which I want to share.

OK, now for the Book of Enoch, courtesy of

Chapter 1:

  1. The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect and righteous, who will be
  2. living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked and godless are to be removed. And he took up his parable and said -Enoch a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by God, saw the vision of the Holy One in the heavens, which the angels showed me, and from them I heard everything, and from them I understood as I saw, but not for this generation, but for a remote one which is for to come.
Enoch = Elias Martinez. Blessed the elect? That sounds like an elected president to me!!! Martinez believed that the detainees should be freed, since they had done nothing wrong - a righteous man, saw the vision of the Holy One - the aliens - in the heavens - another star.

We don't know who the "Holy One" is yet. It could be several characters: Sean, Leila, Sophia, Simon. Perhaps "The Event" happens in the distant future? Or we are simply talking about the old Enoch.

Let's continue...
  1. Concerning the elect I said, and took up my parable concerning them:
    The Holy Great One will come forth from His dwelling,
  2. And the eternal God will tread upon the earth, (even) on Mount Sinai,
    [And appear from His camp]
    And appear in the strength of His might from the heaven of heavens.
  3. And all shall be smitten with fear
    And the Watchers shall quake,
    And great fear and trembling shall seize them unto the ends of the earth.
The Holy Great One = Sophia? And the eternal God will tread upon the earth... I haven't been able to figure out the next two lines completely, but appearing in the strength of His might could either mean the aliens coming from NGC 253 or the Sentinels - Dempsey's people - who come in... I don't know yet.

Section 5 could mean Martinez's strike at those buses and the fact that they need to bring their people to Earth could explain the fact that Sophia's now ready for an all out war to take over the Earth.
  1. And the high mountains shall be shaken,
    And the high hills shall be made low,
    And shall melt like wax before the flame
  2. And the earth shall be wholly rent in sunder,
    And all that is upon the earth shall perish,
    And there shall be a judgement upon all (men).
This would suggest a cataclysmic event where a weapon is unleashed, leveling cities, killing everything on earth, leading to a judgement day.
  1. But with the righteous He will make peace.

    And will protect the elect,
    And mercy shall be upon them.

    And they shall all belong to God,
    And they shall be prospered,
    And they shall all be blessed.

    And He will help them all,
    And light shall appear unto them,
    And He will make peace with them'.
  2. And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones
    To execute judgement upon all,
    And to destroy all the ungodly:

    And to convict all flesh
    Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed,
    And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.
I'm not going to try to make too much sense of this part yet, but it suggests that perhaps some will be saved, that the "ungodly" will be destroyed (Nephilim? Fallen angels? Aliens? Hybrids?) and that perhaps the things that the aliens brought to us covertly, technology, would also be destroyed. I'm not sure about the last line...

What do you think? That's Chapter 1... There are more relevant chapters, though not all are... I'll get to those later. This is a start!
