    but what i really want to know is what triggered this. or, why mentioning daniel's mom's name brought out this sudden desire to carry out locke's plan.

    i think i'm stuck on ben really going there to talk to locke and being sincerely upset that he was going to hang himself. but mentioning that woman's name set ben off on another decision.


    but i still think ben's crap for doing that to locke!
    Yes, Ben did say he was going to miss Locke.

    I am sure, eventually, we will learn what suddenly set him off at the mention of Faraday's mom. Hopefully, not too long from now.

    I personally think both of them are bad guys who believe they are doing good (especially Ben). But... they both have their own (evil ) agendas. It seems like Ben wants the Island and Jacob to forgive him/take him back and Widmore wants to (apparently) control time using the Island. Evil I say!

    awesome episode

    ben killing locke really suprised me, although i dont see why it should being the lying manipulative person he is

    and no oceanic 6 in this episode was dissapointing but with the title of the episode i really didnt expect them to be in this one

    i also like it how time moves slower on the island then the rest of the world, i hope they explain this

    You just never know with Ben. His actions are so mysterious and surprising at times. I don't think we'll know if he is really good or evil for some time to come.

    I believe Ben killed Locke because he was of no longer any use to him when he told him who he needed to talk to. I'm betting he's gonna get an unexpected awakening when he wakes up and locke is sitting over him. No doubt he'll make up some lie though.

    When Mr. Widmore talked about a war coming... and locke needed to be on the island, I think this is the war with the island natives and the darma. I think he knows somehow that locke would be sent back to the 70's, before the purge happens.

    I'm still not sure what side widmore is on though. He wants locke to be on the good side.... but what side is that? What side does he want to win? I'm guessing it's the side of the "others" since he worked with them for so long.

    All this show we have been lead to believe that the others were the "bad" people of the island, and the darma was the good side.

    The more this show goes, it seems like that role is finally being changed.

    In the end, I think widmore will be shown to have been the good guy, and ben the evil.

    Nice video.

    Love the episode, thought it was a bit slow in some area, but it seem to have connected a lot of the other pieces togeather.

    Ben and Widmore both seem to be preparing for a war of some kind. Except Ben believe only violence will win it for them, Widmore despite his use of force believe in a peaceful solution. Ben got rid of him and then proceeded with his own plan for saving the island, that involve saving the island but keeping lock out of power and himself firmly in it.
    The above still leave out the question of who is the enemy through. Dharma would be a good choice and the fact they still dropping supplies may suggest they still got people on the island.

    I think that it was the 316s firing at the boat, it just seem to make sense in the story. They thought it was the people who been harassing them and decided like the losties to fight them off.

    Plus Robert would never order his people to attack them knowing that Lock was jumping through time that was not make much sense.

    Was the 316s on the second island which cannot be seen from the first.
    And what is Frank up to, I certainly do not think he the kind of person to go running off, leaving the passengers behind or do I believe he was taking up flying planes because he enjoy it, he their for his own reasons and probably been place on the island by Widmore and knows a lot more than he let on in the past.

    I gotta agree with Alan Wake, that this episode went a long way from "explaining" who was shooting at the left behinders in the canoe.

    Certainly a valid theory that it was the 316ers, but it's no more a valid theory after this episode than it was before this episode. (we've known about the water bottle for awhile now)

    It still could have been anyone, especially since we still have no motivation for why the 316ers would be willing to shoot at them. Also, they def were not being shot at with a shotgun. It was some sort of pistol or rifle.

    it seems obvious that widmore is zipping through time, manipulating one and all...the unanswered question is why?

    why does he care? what is he trying to gain?

    something tells me he's trying to control the island. is he trying to control it for 'good' or so that he can zip through time and perhaps go back and change it, likely for his own gain

    I have a funny feeling that the show is gonna end with something like the losties having to destroy the time device on the island - or destroy the island itself - and they'll find themselves lost somewhere in time, permanently. do the old 'sacrifice themselves to save the future' thing

    Are you saying the people from this episode ( the new crash survivors ) were the ones shooting the Oceanic 6?
    They were shooting at team island though, not the Oceanic 6. You can never be a hundred % certain because it's Lost, but you can kind of determine that at some point in the future that camp will be abandoned for some reason. And when Team!Island flash to the future and come by the abandoned camp they find two canoes on the beach. There were 2 canoes on the beach in this weeks episode and we learned that the pilot (Frank) has taken the third one. So everything does seem to point to the new survivors shooting at Sawyer and co... after all one of them did just uncover a shotgun.

    Overall it was a very necessary episode, and it's been a long time coming. I found parts of it a little too slow for my taste, but it's an important episode and Locke's an important character so I'm letting it slide. By far the most interesting scene was between Locke and Ben. And just when you thought you might have Ben figured out - bam!

    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.
