I hope they are not building up to killing Sayid off. Because if they are they need to use him a lot better before then He has been sadly and badly underused this season.
I know it was slow and harked back to classic Lost and the ending was predictable but I kinda thought something might happen to cause Sayid to reconsider what he was going to do.
Lil' Ben has to revive obviously and like others say it must fuel his obsession with the island,however, this whole thing makes you wonder how Ben didn't recognise Sawyer ed co after the crash as an adult. Memory tripping or is that what fuelled his interest in the crashed ones?
Anyway a good episode, tho slow it filled in a few gaps about Sayid but sadly underwhelming fill ins. So I'll rate it an average. Would have helped to throw in a few reveals or curve balls amongst the other characters if not the Sayid storyline.
Plus I missed the flashbacks but am seeing a lack of connections to other cast in the flashbacks. Use to be cool to see someone in thr background who belonged in another person's story. ...Sigh...
