  • We finally learn got to learn more about Ben's past life and in it was plain excitment!

    Following from last weeks episode 'The Brig' John brought his dead father back to Ben's camp with the body on his back, but Ben refuses to take John to Jacob so John knocks Mikhal out and then they go together to see the mysterious Jacob. The flashbacks of Ben were very revealing in a way to help you understand the island in those days as well as Ben. He has a father who always forgot about his birthday, well not seriously forgetting but just didn't bother to get him anything. His mother dying seemed to have a bad influence on Ben and his fathers friendship. As he grew older he left the Dharma Initiative to be a hostle. Better choice seeing as though the Dharma sucks! Nameste Thank you and goooooooooooooood luck!! The part where Ben killed off his dad and the the Dharma initiative inhabitants was a little sad but Be must've done it for his reasons. Back to Ben and John, Alex gives Locke a gun incase of Jacob. Ben take him to Jacob, warning him not have flashing lights on or else...?!
    Ben and John walk inside Jacob's house and Ben starts talking to a chair, at first I'm thinking WHAT the hell is he doing? Is there really a Jacob is the question: "HELP ME". That is what John heard out of Jacob or was it someone else?
    Ben shoots Locke because Locke heard Jacob. Ben you silly man, why did you kill Locke? Traitor. But unfortunetly for the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815, the tape recorder wasn't enough to eliminate and destroy Juliet from being with the survivors. Is she still one of them or has she changed? But this episode was incredible, absloutely stunning, it's a shame that John got killed off if he is dead, what a shame.
    But awesome overall!
