    My guess is Ben started coordinating the whole thing once Locke let him roam free.

    But wouldn't she have recognized him when she caught him in the net? (his introduction to Lost) She certainly didn't act like she knew who he was.

    But it still a little strange, that whole scene. She said she had never seen an Other before, but she put an arrow through the first one she did. She also said about Ben, "All he does is lie." Seemed odd then, but maybe it makes more sense now.

    Aside from the fact that it's true, of course. :) But how did Danielle know?

    Oh well. I hope either we find out next episode, or she's not really dead. (or both)

    I don't think there's been anyone on Lost that really stood out for me as great eye candy, truthfully. But that's okay: if I wanted eye candy I'd probably be watching something else. That said, if they happened to get someone yummy I wouldn't complain.

    I took Rousseau's reaction to be her acquiesing because she knew Ben was trying to protect Alex, which she also would want. She figured, with all the craziness, Ben probably had the best resources to get Alex to a safe place. Of course, he double crossed her, but she was probably prepared for that also.

    OK, I'm posting my off-the-wall suspicions here just in case they turn out to be right. I have no stong evidence for these, but they haven't been disproven either.

    -Dannielle is Annie
    -Alex is Ben's biological daughter, not just adopted
    -Alex is pregnant
    -Ben and dANNIElle are the Adam & Eve skeletons

    Some people prefer the Rosanne Barrs of the world, and some prefer the Evangeline Lilys of the world. Some say po-TAY-to, some say po-TAH-to.

    WOW. Are you saying that someone wants to see Rose in a bikini, coming out of the ocean, in the rain?

    Probably a monokini, but it works for Bernard.

    Hmm... I don't know, maybe it was one of the other bullet points that interested him. But I think you may be right about Alex being Ben's biological daughter - but then again, why would he need to say she was adopted? The other Others know he can leave the Island, so why pretend she is adopted? He could have just told her that her mom died in childbirth (or some other way when she was too small to remember).

    I just see no way in which Alex being Ben's biological daughter makes any sense at all.

    Agreed. It's not like she hasn't talked about him before.

    She who? Alex? How would Alex know the truth? And Danielle, well what has she been truthful about?

    Seems to me that there's a lot on this show that currently makes no sense. I don't know why this idea is any more absurd than so much that goes on.

    I think it's less unbelievable that Alex is Ben's biological daughter than that the Island can control people thousands of mile away.

    The whole thing with Danielle seems off somehow. When we met her we didn't know about all the people wandering around the island all the time. Now that we do it makes no sense that someone as tough as Danielle with basically nothing to lose would let them take her baby and do nothing about it. Like when Ben and Juliet go to the medical station alone, or when Ben's Dad is driving around in his van. There would be opportunities to kidnap someone and hold them in exchange for your daughter. What about the whole poison gas thing--where was she then?

    I guess I chalked it up to her being emotionally screwed up from being alone all those years. It didn't make much sense for her to take Ben to the Losties when she found him, either. :confused:

    I can't really see her with Ben, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was more to Danielle's story than we have so far. ;)

    She wasn't near as strong when she arrived. Shortly after she arrived:

    - has her child abducted
    - people start freaking out
    - things escalate to the point where she feels obligated to kill everyone else

    If that happened to anyone they might have been more than a little freaked out. I'd say she completely went over the edge when she killed everyone, unless there's something else there we don't know.

    So then, she lives by herself for 12 years, part being pissed off over Danielle, and part being afraid of the Others. Yes she's strong, but the fact that they have her daughter makes her fearful.

    In the meantime she's become sort of a female Locke, living off the land and protecting herself with any means possible. My guess is the reason she hasn't gone after her daughter is she's just one person.

    That also brings up something else that I don't quite remember. When Ben introduces Danielle to Rousseau, did Rousseau know Danielle was her daughter up until that moment? I mean obviously she had suspicions, but did she know for sure?

    Up until we saw the Freighter People, isn't she the only person we haven't seen a flashback for?
