Lost 5x07: "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"

Welcome to the grading & discussion thread for Lost 5x07: "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham".
***SPOILERS AHEAD***



"The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"


"Locke's fateful mission off the island as Jeremy Bentham is revealed."

This episode and "316" were written at the same time by executive producers Lindelof and Cuse. "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham" was originally meant to be aired first, but the order was switched because Lindelof thought it would be "cool". - Wikipedia

Last week, BSG had an episode called "Deadlock". It would have been funny if this one was called "Dead Locke".

^ You're right. It was the place we saw Ben appear.

Re: Lost 5x07: "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"

I can't decide between 'excellent' and 'above average', so I'll go with 'above average'. It was one hell of a ride, but it felt rushed for an episode of Lost and a lot of the story was just glossed over even if you could say that we got what we needed. The life and death of Jeremy Bentham was too quick.

I was torn with Average. But as usual the last 5+ minutes pulled it up to above average.

Re: Lost 5x07: "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"

Pretty much Excellent

I expected this episode to be completely in the past, showing us what happened to Locke, I didn't think we would see him and the Ajira people on the Island, but I was pleasantly surprised.

So much is going on, there is a war forming indeed. Jack is on Ben's side, and Locke is on Widmore's side. I think Widmore is the good guy anyway, at least as good as you can get comparing him and Ben. It will be interesting to see what Locke does to Ben in the next episode.

Re: Lost 5x07: "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"

Questions up in the air...

- Why did Ben kill Locke after telling him he had to lead?

- Where and when did the Ajira plane crash happen?

- Who was Matthew Abaddon really, and will we learn more about him?

- People here were mentioning the camera's focus on Locke's toes. Is there really any significance to that?

- Why did Locke have to kill himself anyway?

- What was up with Jack's breakdown? He acted like he's been visited by Locke repeatedly over the last three years or something like that.

- How does Walt factor into all of this and will we see him again?

I think Jack was f'd up over the daddy issues.

Excellent from me!

Re: Lost 5x07: "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"

- Why did Ben kill Locke after telling him he had to lead?
I think maybe because he just wants to be in control and really hated Locke cause Ben wants to lead the others.

- Where and when did the second plane crash happen?
Looking at the state of that station, and the fact that no one is there, and the fact that the Oceanic people flashed away, I am guessing the plane landed in "present time" So Locke and Ben and Lupitus and Sun are in the present time, while the others are time traveling. But for all I know they are all in the same time, i dunno.

- Who was Matthew Abaddon really, and will we learn more about him?
Well, apparently he can die, heh. I am guessing he was maybe on the island too for a while with Widmore at some point.

- People were mentioning the camera's focus on Locke's toes. Is there really any significance to that?
My guess, nah

- Why did Locke have to kill himself anyway?
To be a proxy for John's dad, that's what Hawking said.

- What was up with jack's breakdown? He acted like he's been visited by Locke repeatedly over the last three years or something like that?
He just misses the island and is in denial

- How does Walt factor into all of this and will we see him again?
My guess, he doesn't fit in, not needed.

If Widmore was a good guy, Alex would still be alive, not to mention Carl and Danielle.

Not perfect, but "gooder" than Ben at least, maybe. I dunno, I haven't seen Widmore personally kill anyone yet.
