    Good for her, no whiny "I'm a star I should only have to do community service"
    She did her time, and FWIW the 18 day span is common in the area if it's a non-violent crime.

    I'm going with #1, although I don't think it's a big hole.

    If I had put that smiley at the end of the sentence like I meant to, it would've tipped you off I'm sure. :)

    Actually, she got jail time because she refused to cooperate in some way--I think she objected to being on parole or something.

    [edit] Oops, no, it was a parole violation that landed her in prison. I was thinking of an earlier case where she decided she would rather do five days in jail than 240 hours of community service. And the violation that imprisoned her was failure to complete community service!

    5. Tom did a good job creating a background for Kevin Johnson, maybe Kevin Johnson was a person who existed.
    6. That's a standard box that everyone on the boat has for personal effects.

    There's so many possibilities for who could have pulled the trigger, and Ben could be complicit in every one of them -- it's just as bad to send someone to where they'll get shot no matter who's the one who's going to shoot them.

    Fair enough! But it still makes the point: there are plenty of red-blooded men for whom Kate is not their type even if you limit the question to looks only.

    Before this episode, I believed that Alex wasn't Ben's daughter and that he just took this "French Chick's" daughter. After seeing this episode, I have changed my mind. I think Alex is actually his biological daughter. Hear me out on this. :) Ben refered to her as "his daughter" while the french chick was there and she didn't even really flinch. I think that Ben, knowing that pregnant women die on the island, whated a child and had to impregnate someone off the island. He picked Rous. When she was almost due, "the island" brought her there, just like it brought the spinal surgeon there for Ben. Just my two cents. ;)

    True enough. The woman has no hips. I'll take Sun or Claire or Nikki or Shannon...

    Okay, for one, Ben cannot possibly be his own biological daughter. ;) Yeah, caught your typo. We know you meant Alex instead of Ben.

    But it has already been established that Ben is NOT Alex' biological father.

    Alex was raised by Ben since she was an infant, so he is the only "parent" she has known. Rousseau probably didn't flinch because she understands that Ben will tend to refer to Alex as "my daughter" because he has had 16 years of experiance as "her father".

    And there has never been any indication that Ben and Rousseau had ever met prior to the island. He grew up on the island since he was about 10 and his father brought him to join the Dharma project.

    Now wait; I'm inclined to agree with you, but has that been proven? I mean, isn't it possible that Danielle's back-story is bogus and she has been on the Island longer than she let on; couldn't she be Annie? I know, that's wacky; but has it been definitively disproved...?

    If I lived on an island like that, I wouldn't be picky. :)

    Not that I'm picky anyway.

    We have pictures showing him off the island, passports, and different currencies. Just because he said he hadn't been off the island doesn't mean that he actually hadn't been off the island. And actually I think he said he was born on the island, which we know is a lie. I'm not sure if he ever said that he had never been off of the island. What been wants, he gets. I don't put it past him to go and get a woman pregnant off the island so he could have a child.

    Concerning the not flinching...If someone took my daughter, it would be an issue everytime they called her their daughter.

    Just to be clear, I'm sure that individual tastes vary enough that plenty of guys would prefer other women over Kate. I only meant that in the original context, to virtually anyone's tastes, she's more than attractive enough to make the point unequivocally. One would have to think that Tom both thought she was too ugly to even want to take a peek at her naked, and that he'd be so rude as to say that to her.

    As far as Kate and the rest of the women, I think they've all been my favorite at one time or another. Juliet even had the lead during "The Other Woman." We need more rainstorm scenes in this show.

    Rousseau has already slapped and elbowed and punched Ben several times when he referred to Alex as "his", and she corrected him verbally each time as well.

    I'd say you're trying to make something out of nothing by suggesting that Ben met and impregnated Danielle 16 or 17 years ago while on an excursion. He is clearly not suave or particularly charming on a "date", as we saw in Juliet's recent flashback episode.

    Now, BatManuel, I'm sure could have swept Danielle off her feet years earlier, and he doesn't age and we HAVE seen him off-island when they persuaded Juliet to come with them.
