Last week’s episode ended with a very young Ben dying from a gunshot wound. I asked the question of whether or not Ben would know who shot him. Well this week we got the answer.
Jack refuses to help save Ben. He says that he already did it once, and that was because of Kate. This time he will not do it. Sawyer suspects that Ben freed Sayid, which makes Roger realize the same thing.
Meanwhile, Miles and Hurley discuss time travel. Hurley asks the question of why Ben did not say anything to Sayid about meeting him before when Sayid tortured him. Later, when Kate and Sawyer take little Ben to Richard, we learn why.
Richard explains that what they do to Ben will take his innocence. He will not remember much of what happened. In fact, he will now be one of them. The episode ends with modern day Ben waking up in hit cot, with a very creepy Locke saying “Welcome to the land of the living.”
The flashback focuses on Kate. All about how she gives Aaron back to Claire’s mother. She tells Claire’s mom that she is going back to the island to bring Claire back. Some of the other stuff in the flashback dealt with Kate and Sawyer’s daughter’s mom. Remember, they knew each other.
It is during that scene where we see that Kate truly does love Sawyer. I guess that was obvious to everyone.
Anyways, next week’s episode shows Ben going to be judged. I am guessing by the smoke-monster.
