It ended with a bang, all right! Since that "bang" seems to have effectively eliminated a certain pivotal figure in the Lost timeline, I wonder if this means we're now supposed to forget everything we think we know about this series. Gotta love a show that keeps you guessing five years in!

Nice. That hadn't even occured to me, despite the fact that the episode containing Ben's back surgery was on the Sci-Fi Channel recently.

I think the other problem I have with this and the Economist is that it makes Sayid too self-guessing and weak. I treasure his character for being so cool and decisive and unhesitating.
I saw him as pretty sharp, quick on his feet and as cool as ever. I don't mind that he has a few issues to grapple with. It's understandable too, since he wants to be a new man yet people around him are trying to label him as a killer who can't change.

Something tells me that being shot by his trusted Hostile buddy is going to turn Lil' Ben into the malicious bastard he is today. His trust was betrayed in the worst way possible. I bet next episode Alpert will find him in the jungle and heal him back to health, Island Willing.

Sayid intentionally kept himself around to be tortured and executed rather than escaping. That's not very James Bond

I got the impression that he thought he was "put there" to kill Ben.

No, he kept himself around in order to get at Li'l Ben.

Above Average

This episode was a step down from the last few episodes but it was still interesting.

And I'll wade into the time travel discussion as it pertains to Ben...

If young Ben is killed in this episode, old Ben could still be alive (old Ben did not die in his timeline). I guess it depends if the producers are going the Back To The Future route or the scientific route of parallel universes.

Wouldn't being shot by a hostile make him ditrust the hostiles? Why would he join the hostiles after a hostile shot him?

Alright, that's a better interpretation. I guess nobody got a chance to explain the time travel rules to him eh?

^His pal Richard will let him know that Sayid was no hostile.

Maybe he'll come to revere Richard for saving his life, but at the same time secretly despise the Hostiles in general for Sayid's betrayal. After all, Ben is often of two minds on things.

Oh I forgot about the ending, heh. On the hand it was shocking since we know Ben doesn't die... on the other hand it's a cheap fake-out because we KNOW Young Ben doesn't get killed there so it's just there to end the episode on. The time travel rules have been established, "Whatever Happened, Happened", Ben can't die in 1977.


However, a thought just occurred to me, what if it is the gun shot here that causes older Ben in the future to develop that spine problem that Jack had to fix.
I dont think it works that way because it didnt happen yet and ben would have recognized sayid when he first appeared on the island, right?

Maybe he did, maybe he didn't, we don't really know. From what happened with Desmond I think the facts point to it just happened now, so now all of the sudden Ben is going to "remember" all of this happening all the sudden.

Average. It wasn't slow but it wasn't nearly as interesting as what we've been getting. The ending was a shocker but I can't see it having much of a lasting effect. I felt this episode could've been halved.
