    I have to admit I was stunned by Ben killing John. What was his motive? That's one thing I failed to understand by the killing.
    It was interesting though this episode to show how John was desperate trying to get everyone back to the island.

    Bets episode of Season 5, Locke is/was/is my favourite. Ben is so untrustworthy.

    I think story, he probably wouldnt have cared about the island anymore if he had her back.

    She may have been unable to.

    About Locke driving, is it possible that he simply held his right leg up and used his left to hit the accelerator? He wasn´t exactly driving very well....

    I agree Locke and the rest of the plane crashed (whatever) in real time, this also puts Ben in real time. Where Sayid ends up I guess we will find out this week.

    As for Locke driving, I can put a piece of wood on my gas pedal to warm my car up, you could push down on the pedal in a cast.

    I agree, it doesn't matter if you have a cast on or not.. pushing a pedal down does not require you to bend your foot in any way... you just push down.

    First, it was Jin, not Sayid that came out of the Dharma van. We don't know for sure where Sayid is. Also, I'm fairly confident that the plane was not sent back in time at all. We know that Hurley and the others disappeared off the plane before it crashed. So if they all flashed back in time, why would some disappear off the plane and others not. Further, why would that Dharma station be abandoned if the it was during the time that Dharma was still active on the island. It just doesn't add up. I'm fairly certain that the plane is on the island in real time.

    It's a television show. You're posting on a forum where the headlining show is about a big stone circle with a puddle in the middle that takes you to other planets. Does it really matter what someone's foot can or cannot do?

    Call an orthopedists office and ask them.

    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.

    Given that Richard seems to be a constant, I'm thinking that Ben and Widmore are at each other's throats for whatever the reason. Obviously somehow the island slows down a person from aging once they reach a certain age.

    I'm personally getting a bit tired of the whole thing of spending 40 minutes on flushing out the backstory and 5 minutes on moving the story forward. It reminds me of Les Mis. I'm also fed up with everone constantly pushing things off with the "I don't have time to explain it" crap. I think that it would have been better if the producers had kept a running title card indicating the real-world calendar date that we were seeing as its my impression that most of the events happen within a short period of time.
    Problem if we knew the date that everything was happening then figuring out the overal picture of where we are heading would be much easier. No world calendar date means we got no order in which we are being told stuff making it harder and more fun for the audience. Lost have never been for people who do not like to exercise their brain.

    Somehow I agree that something like that is going to happen and we all find out that the show title refers not to the story, but the final outcome.
