I am going to say it right here and now...Kate and Sawyer should have let Ben die. I know "he's just a kid", but he's Benjamin Linus! The actions of Kate and Sawyer saving him is what turns him into the monster he becomes. Why would they do that, especially after Richard spelled it out for them? Jack was right...they were wrong.
Oh, who else was right...me! I knew Ben wasn't dead. Which makes me think the writers kinda dropped the ball. Think about it Sayid (the guy who has made a career out of killing people) gave Ben one shot to the chest and took off...weak:P If the Sayid I know had wanted Ben dead...he would be dead.
I was loving the conversation between Miles and Hurley! Miles had me going there for a moment on his time line theory. Then bam...Hurley hit him with "why doesn't he remember Sayid?" Now, we know he doesn't remember Sayid because of what happens with Richard (he said he wouldn't remember anything)...So Miles' time line theory may be correct. Which leaves my brain seaping out of my ears...
Best ending ever. Locke watching over old Ben as he wakes up. "Welcome back to the land of the living." Translation..."you killed me you son of a b*tch!" Go Locke!
Oh, fwiw Husband silently watched the show for the second time ever tonight. He said "Watching this show is like throwing a Thanksgiving dinner into a blender...I know it supposed to be good, I just can't tell what anything is." Poor Husband:P
