What a whirlwind episode! Good thing they gave us those few extra minutes at the end. I have to admit, I am still hoping that all of Ben’s actions will somehow be justified. I can’t help but trust him. It was interesting that when Locke awoke, they showed both of his eyes–fairly close up, but not quite the one-eye-opening that I had been expecting.
Now I am left with these questions:
- Ultimately, what does Ben want? What does Widmore want?
- Why did they say repeatedly that Locke would only need to convince one of them, then the rest would return? How could that possibly work? (It seems as though it DID work…)
- Why DON’T they need Walt? Abaddon’s question cut to the heart of what we have all been wondering, yet Locke dismissed it so easily.
- How does Abaddon know where to get people to, since his job is “to get people to where they need to go?”
- Who flashed to the past, and who stayed in the present? Why didn’t Locke go to the 70s? Or Ben? Where did Lapidus and “some other woman” (Sun? Or someone else we didn’t know was on the plane?) go to in one of the boats?
- Has Widmore spent much of his life focused on John Locke due to his visit from the future? How has this affected his life?
