    That's seriously not an issue. For one thing, we don't know how long he'd had the cast on at that point. They'd already done a lot of traveling before that. And secondly, in a life or death situation like that it's not too far-fetched to think he could do it.
    It doesn't make any difference how long the cast was on or if it was life or death. If the cast didn't make his foot too big to fit in the floorboard, it would have immobilized his ankle from bending. He would not have been able to operate the gas peddle. Feel free to call an Orthopedists' office if you don't believe me.

    Good point. For the first time a lighter side of Widmore has been shown and im not quite sure what to think.

    When Jack is talking to Ben on the plane and points out that Locke killed himself, I knew immediately Ben was lying when he said he didnt know. I thought he simply knew he did, but just before the big moment it became quite obvious to me Locke was about to be killed But at the same time

    Im surprised no has mentioned that Locke came back to life when he landed on the island. I had been guessing this for a year now and to finally see it gives us some pretty good evidence that Christian Shepherd is alive and well!

    These last three episodes have been great. .

    I dont think so as when locke was about to turn the whelle he asked if christian could help him up and christian said he couldnt, i think he is incorporial!

    Ben tricked Locke into being the one to move the island so he could go pull his revenge on Widmore.

    Ben killed Locke once he had the information to return to the island because Locke would have returned the leader of the others when he came back to the island.

    Ben didn't expect John to return to life when they brought him back to the island.

    my take on this too (ftm)


    btw could Ben have known that killing John would send him back to the island ? (and leave him stranded)
    it's doubtful but Ben does seems to know a lot of things..

    and Widmore somehow being on the good side was immediately excluded given the kind of people he hired

    Oh also, weighing in on who is the good guy, I was starting to lean towards Widmore being, if not the good guy, then on the right side, but the one thing that I can't justify is why the island wouldn't let Michael die until he was in a position where he could stop Widmore's freighter from ultimately reaching the island. That makes me think the island is not a fan of Widmore...but who knows.

    I think another big question is did the Locke and the 316ers flash back in time to the 70's with Jack, Kate, Hurley and presumably Sayid?

    I've found a lot of people assumed they did, but I thought it was implied that they didn't when Ceasar explained that he saw Hurley and others disappear from the plane. If they all flashed, then why would some disappear and the rest not?

    Craziness!

    The one thing I just thought is that why Ben and Widmore was probably at each other throats for a long, Richard Alpert does not seem the type of guy to let them two rip each other to pieces.

    both ben and widmore are supremely self-motivated. and they'll use/abuse anyone to get their goals.

    Another great episode.

    I think Ben didn´t care one bit about Locke killing himself other then that he needed the information about how to get back to the island. Once he had that info Locke wasn´t needed ans since killing him on the island doesn´t seem to be an option Ben decided to act there and then.

    I´ll admit that I didn´t expect the other peoples on the plane to end up on the island. I´m also surprised if Frank (and Sun?) didn´t get caught up in the flash, seems strange that some are effected and others not. Of course it could have been the co-pilot and the Fed escorting Sayid.

    As for who is the good guy in the Ben/Whitmore conflict I´m going to say that neither is the good guy, this is a straight up power struggle between two borderline psychos.

    I am not convinced, however, that the 316ers are the ones in the boats who shot at our Island Losties. Since Lipidis and mystery woman stole a boat and took it somewhere, it's possible that it was that boat that the Island Losties found and used. Meanwhile, the original owners of the boats came back and met the 316ers (not sure what they did to them, although I could see some kind of scuffle breaking out as per Walt's dream) and went in search of Frank and mystery woman, but found the Island Losties instead and started shooting.
    They got the boats from the Others' equipment on the second island.

    No idea. I don't remember there being any cameras there when Ben left the island. Maybe Widmore somehow found out about Ben being transported there and started watching the spot.
