    holy crud

    lots of secrets, i almost felt sorry for ben..but he's such a frakking psycho that i just can't

    he's a mass murderer, who killed his father. now locke's not a mass murderer, but he killed his father - or got him killed

    Pretty good episode. I hope Ben doesn't get killed off, [/strike]I really want to learn the story behind how Ben and what's her name slept together, and they had that daughter who's name slips my mind at the moment Alex (thank you wikipedia).

    As for the thrilling end of the episode, well (spoilers for the finale)
    Spoiler:
    I hope Locke kills Jack in that showdown because I like Locke, he's a cool character

    lets not forget that apparently Richard doesn't age at all, and he's been on the island all along.

    This episode was terrific! We learned a ton of stuff!!!

    Spoiler:
    -Ben wasn't born on the island
    -Ben is the last remaining member of the Dharma Initiative
    -There is another group of "Others" on the island (the natives)
    -Richard is apparently a native and doesn't age
    -Ben was responsible for the Purge that killed off the Dharma Initiative
    -We get to see the "line in the sand" that Mikhal yelled about when Sayid approached the communications cabin


    Great episodes, can't wait for the next!

    Yeah, Richard didn't age at all, but Roger did. I wonder how old Ben really is.

    Poor Locke!

    i don't get what you're saying.

    a) mikhal was lying to sayid and locke because he was pretending to be the last Dharma guy. the "drawn line" was figurative, really. because Tom said the same thing to Jack in the jungle waaaaayyy back. saying you stay on your side we'll leave you alone. so there was no line mikhal was talking about.

    b) whatever it was that Locke saw on the ground on their walk to jacob - i dunno - gunpowder? ash?

    or am i missing something?

    i feel like the school lesson on volcanoes won't have been for naught...

    uh, no. he's dead. he died in australia. the island didn't bring him back to life in some twisted time-travelling circumstance where he has been a leader for longer than his dead body has been lost on the island.

    But when Jack found the coffin, it was empty, and in season 1 he saw his father standing in the distance.

    Maybe Christian was never dead. Remember those spider things that bit Paula and Nikki? Could have been a way to get him to the island and have everyone "think" he was dead.

    Maybe I'm thinking too much now. *LOL*

    the coffin was empty because it fell from a plane. who knows if we'll ever find the body.
    jacks dad appearing on the beach was the blacksmoke monster thingy - like Yemi appearing to Eko.

    Definitely an episode full of info. I can't wait to see how things continue to unfold leading up to the season finale.
