    Anyone else think Locke's surgery won't go so well? If he codes right in the middle of it, that would pretty much qualify as a near death experience. That's going to be the trigger IMO.

    No way does Widmore trust that Ben won't sell him out to Locke. Makes no sense.

    I didn't LOL but my brian did do a "Hey now!" when he said it and I had to jump back because I missed about 20 seconds of show while I processed what had happened there.

    I wonder if Jack will make a small incision in Locke's kidney sac, telling Flocke to let everyone off the island (but Jack). Then Jack and Flocke end up alone on the island...Jack protecting the island from Flocke for eternity (or as long as he can).

    Wouldn't him getting hit by Desmond's car qualify as a near death experience? I also wondered if the plane crash he had when he was piloting wouldn't ALSO qualify? But I'm not quite sure when that happened, pre or post his time on the island.

    I died laughing when Desmond started his car and Ben yelled, "Don't you dare."

    That was one of the funniest things in Lost.

    I love Miles, but I have a feeling Ben being able to contact him with a walkie is a very bad thing for his future. He was genius when they asked him where he was going, "I'll be running through the woods..."

    Put me in the camp that says Jack becoming the protector was way too easy and straightforward. I'm also in the camp that says that Ben is just pretending to help MiB.

    I agree with you on the first.

    Jack won't be the permanent protector there'll be a twist.

    OTOH, Ben as the permanent MIB replacement seems plausible to me. (Meaning Ben isn't just pretending to help MIB/Flocke).

    We'll see Sunday!

    Ben is only out for Ben. Giving Miles up to Locke doesn't get Ben anything, especially if he now wants to save the Island for himself.

    I'm not even sure killing Widmore was Ben looking out for himself though. That may have been pure revenge.

    I almost did the Happy Dance when Flocke killed Zoe.

    Widmore's death was kind of uneventful for such a power player.

    Widmore's role in this whole thing still perplexes me. Was he really working for Jacob? Ben said something like, you don't even KNOW Jacob!! I agree, for such a power player, his part in the whole scheme seems a bit lame. Yes, I know he was responsible for bringing back Desmond, but it still doesn't hit me the right way...

    We shall see!!

    Is it Sunday yet?

    Ben, at this point in the story, flipped halfway to bad when he remembered how his daughter was murdered, and seeing Whidmore completed that. I don't think that FLocke really had to promise him anything at that point, he was ready to go along with him. There's still a possibility he may flip again before the show is over, but I doubt it.
    I was wondering that as well. I was surprised that FLocke admitted that his promise was a lie so quickly. Is he losing his cool?

    Another question; where's the C4? Does Miles have it?

    And a comment: back at the beginning of the series, people were assuming that Hurley was going to die, because the "fat funny guy" is always targeted for death. I'm really glad that he's still there, entering the final episode.

    (When did Desmond meet up with Hurley in the flash-sideways?)

    Funny, I don't think I've anticipated something to watch on TV as much as this since Game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals. I will NOT pick up the phone, or answer the door, or, perhaps even talk to my wife (she's not a Lost fan) until this is over at 11:30 :)

    Whoa, I just had a thought. Who changed the most dramatically throughout all of LOST? It's gotta be Locke who was an underacheiver with no confidence at all, who went on to walk and then became the most powerful part of the show. What if this WHOLE SHOW, from beginning to end, was just something that Locke dreamed while he was under the anesthesia that Jack is about to give him during his surgery.

    Just a thought....

    I loved the episode, but wasn't thrilled with the wrap on Widmore. I thought the explanation of "Jacob came to me and convinced me to change my ways" was a bit too neat, plus I'm left still wondering what his initial purpose was. I guess, back in the freighter days, Widmore's assumed plan (according to Ben, I think) to "kill every living thing on the island" was his way to get access to the light.

    On a similar note, help me remember this correctly: When Michael was about to blow up the freighter, Christian (who we now know was MIB) showed up and said something along the lines of, "You can go now," a line relating to Michael's inability to kill himself because he still had to serve a purpose. So...how did Christian (MIB) get on the freighter? Is that a fair question considering what we now know about the smoke and it's inability to travel over water?

    Sorry to get sidetracked on an episode I loved, but this was bothering me and I need to get past it.:D

    It's a mystery, as is Christian's appearance to Sun and Frank on the main island while MIB/Locke was on Hydra Island.

    I think that would work. I also am thinking it ties into the whole bit about the island not being a good places for mothers, hence babies dying or not being born there.

    Yes. He started getting back to the Ben we all know and hated when he saw the grave of his daughter and remembered it was Widmore's man that did it.

    I still can't believe just in one second Richard is gone.

    That is a good point. Question is, was there a boat he could have traveled on? I don't remember. But that may be how it happened.

    I am thinking the lack of pregnancy on the island is somehow either a MiB or Jacob thing. Or heck, maybe an Island thing.

    I mean, thinking back to how they came to be - by an accident of the woman washing up to shore and being 9 months preggo. The babies lived - just as Aaron did, and just as Alex and...wasn't there someone else....that guy that Charlie killed? The women were already pregnant when they came to the island.

    And for that matter, Sun was too. Maybe that is why Jin didn't mind so much dying with Sun instead of staying alive to care for their daughter. It really wasn't his.....
