I don’t even know what to say, except it’s hard to figure out who the good guys are. Ben is never a good guy, and he’s creepy. But so is Widmore, so we’re stuck.
I honestly don’t know who to believe–did Widmore stage the plane, or did Ben? I still think it’s Ben, because when Naomi landed on the island, she honestly seemed surprised that there were survivors. Of course, she could have been lying, as she was lying about the boat being Penelope’s, but still. Ben’s capable of anything, and getting fake docs and pictures nailing Widmore for the fakiness doesn’t seem beyond his powers.
This is the first episode in a long time that didn’t bring in anything too new, which is kinda nice. I ean, we already knew that Michael was doing all the sabotaging, but that whole bomb thing was a little weird.
And ok, there is the whole Libby thing. I guess I’m just going to take it on faith that the island makes people see dead people, but dead people don’t actually do anything except sort of speak for the island, right? So Libby was telling Michael not to do it, but Ben is supposedly trying to protect the island, soooooo….
Just so confused. Discuss.
Seriously, it’s amazing that people keep working for and trusting Ben, although I guess even Sayid (who is THE MAN) ends up doing that in the end, so are we, too,
