    That was awesome. I love a little more back story with Juliette. Ben is crazy and Lock is an idiot. He's so screwed and doesn't even know it! Great, great episode.

      An interesting episode. Ben's definitely a few chevrons short of a stargate, but his manipulation of Locke in this episode was brilliantly played. By giving Locke exactly what he wants, and gaining some basic freedom, he's sown the seeds of distrust among the other members of camp Locke. If Ben is free, there's no way the Sawyer's going to trust him, and I'm pretty sure folks are more willing to trust Sawyer's opinion than Locke's anyway.

      The fact that the DHARMA Initiative had a system to distribute a gas to kill everyone on the Island in place in advance is extremely disturbing. It's likely that the stations themselves were isolated, particularly the Swan and the Looking Glass, and weren't affected by the initial purge by the Others. Ben's obsession with Juliet is also rather unnerving. It's likely that she reminds him of either his mother or his friend Annie (whom the producers have hinted is of monumental importance to the storyline!).

      Charles Widmore's involvement isn't at all surprising to me. I've expected it was him since we learned about the freighter folks. He certainly has the resources. His interest in the Island also explains why he was interested in the Black Rock diary last episode. Although I'm very curious as to how he's learned so much about the Island, especially to the point where he knows or at least suspects Ben's importance to it. The fact that Faraday and Charlotte had a map is also suspicious.

      Overall, *** stars

                  Juliet has just risen to the rank of my favourite character on the show, best written female character played by the best actress on the show by far. Oh, and another great episode.

                    Another station is revealed! The Tempest. Good to see some more meat being added to past events to give them more of a foundation. Again there is mention of Ana Lucia. The situation in Locke's camp is becoming a little nuts. I hope there are some big events on that front soon. Nice to see Claire put her foot in it with Locke, definately sets up a revolution, as Ben hinted. Poor Goodwin, this string of events definately makes me feel more for the Others.

                      ok folks, am I the only one to think severa things here don't add up ?

                      1) everything points to Ben wanting the entire island gassed (for whatever reason), yet Ben himself wasn't safe where he was in the camp - surely he wasn't willing to risk his own life ?

                      2) if Charlotte & Daniel really did want to stop the gas from being released, why didn't they simply tell Jack & co. about it, instead of sneaking away & arousing more suspicion (which nearly got everyone killed when Juliette almost stopped Daniel from terminating the process)

                        Because they been told not to trust anyone on the island, it simply they or more precisely Charlotte still harbor doubts that Jack gang have not join up with ben gang and are in fact just all working together to kill them and the freighter crew. so they are keeping them out of the loop. Plus I reckon their was more they were doing in that station,which I think was some kind power station than they told Jack and Gang, for one we know Faraday aim is something to do time travel, their a good bet that they were actually re powering the other stations and powering up the orchid for Faraday time traveling mission.

                        The fact that Dharm has a system is not that disturbing, they were under constant attack from who could just vanished in a blink of an eye like Juliet friend did. What I fine strange if they had such a system in place why did not they used it.

                        I guesting Widmore bought the knowledge off the black market , as the DHARMA initiative seem to be well and truly over.

                        Another possible more likely reason given the video tape is that he simply captured and tortured member of what organization Ben has set up off Island.

                          given that Jack & co were far more suspicious of the boat people than the other way around, that is doubtful (and hey, it's the boat ppl who had the gas masks, not the losties). besides, they knew long since that Jack & co were the "real" losties ie. the passengers of flight 815, and that they were the ones awaiting rescue. ultimately Daniel & Charlotte had absolutely no reasonwhatsoever to leave Jack in the dark about the whole toxic gas thing. furthermore, how the hell did they even know about the imminent gas release in the first place ? something stinks about all this, I say Daniel & Charlotee may not be as "innocent" as they were made out to be

                          that's yet another plot hole actually - who initiated the countdown in the 1st place ? (and why ?)

                            Charlotte and Daniel initiated the countdown when they were destroying the gas, appearantly the only way to render it inert risked setting of the system and thus the reason they had the gas masks with them.

                            C & D could easily have suspected that one or more of the losties was really working for the islanders and would therefore try to prevent the gas system from being destroyed.

                            On the whole this was my least favorite episode of the season, I´ve come to prefer the flash forwards rather then the flashbacks.

                              k so Ben didn't want the island gassed either (makes more sense actually :-)

                              but still, if C&D's intentions really were genuine, wouldn't it have been a lot safer to just leave the gas as it was (the islanders were doing fine all these years) rather than embark on an extremely risky enterprise to destroy it ? I mean it's not like neutralizing the gas was a simple thing, as it involved the risk of doing far more harm than good (they came to what, 2 seconds close to a catastrophe ? not really worth the odds, I'd say)
