Another good LOST episode last night. Of course we were presented with just enough information to develop more questions.
- I think we're close to finding out how Kate ends up with Aaron off the island. Claire's demise seems imminent; or her reluctance to keep her child on the island with her.
- Smokey is back and in rare form. Controlled in some way by Ben. He knows how to release it; and odd that it didn't attack the Losties.
- Locke, as good as his character is, is being duped through this whole thing. He plays into Ben's game, hook line and sinker.
- And speaking of game, what "game" is Ben referring to with Widmore's crew. "They changed the rules"
- We now know how Sayid became Ben's assassin. Based solely on revenge for the death of his wife.
- Also I think we've seen straight up time travel now with Ben showing up in Tunisia in a winter Dharma coat. So we have now seen a conscious(I assume) time travel with Desmond and a physical time travel with Ben.
- As much as a Bad dude(thanks Hurley) Ben is I still think Ben is inherently good, trying to protect the island. His daughter ended up dead because 'they changed the rules', not because he didn't care. I could be completely wrong but I'm sticking to him being a 'good guy'.
Until next week...
