Is it Charles Widmore? Is it Ben? Are they both evil and John is gonna beat them both in an ultimate island smackdown? But they both want John, they BOTH say that he is special, and Ben was all lovey dovey “I’m talking to a psycho” voice, up until Ben mentioned Eloise Hawking. I mean, why bother saving John from suicide just to kill him? There was something about Eloise Hawking’s name that triggered the evil Ben. Or maybe Ben is just evil all the time, and just REALLY good at fooling even us. Or maybe we’re all just stupid for believing Ben YET AGAIN, and should just listen to Eloise and Christian when they tell us Ben is evil.
I guess what I’m saying is that at the end of the day, I just don’t get it.
But how cool was it to see Walt? So glad they don’t leave that hanging, although John’s “The boy’s been through enough” seemed like a pretty lame reason to leave him in the States. Like Jack and Kate and Sun haven’t been through enough? Like John hasn’t been through enough? Whatever. But didn’t he look good. He looked good, right? And I think he gave us a little foreshadowing there, with the whole, “I dreamed you were getting your trashed kicked on a beach wearing a suit” bit. Gotta love that Walt.
One more thing. I still don’t get why BEN had to go back to island, and how come he didn’t disappear with the others. Methinks the island just isn’t all that please with Ben. Although, come to think of it, how come the smoke monster hasn’t gotten Ben if he’s evil? We need more about the smoke monster, definitely, and I for one would love to see it drag Ben far far away.
Still so many more questions. But then if we knew everything, JJ Abrams would be out of a job. And in this economy, he’d be screwed.
