Lost was again cRazY last night!!!
Charles Widmore saves John and gives him the new identity. Did anyone see that coming? Anyone? Widmore might not be the bad guy that Ben has painted him to be? Since the show I have been wracking my brain to remember what we know about Widmore. Yes, we know that he was a jerk to Desmond, but let's face it, at the time Desmond really wasn't a great catch for Penny. But other than that everything we've learned about Widmore has come from Ben. Now I've always doubted Ben. That's just part of his character. He's a creepy little guy. You think he's just a little nerd, then he goes all crAzY and kills everybody in sight! But then he'd do something to get back in our good graces.
However, after last night, I have finally decided...I do NOT like Ben. I do NOT trust him. And I don't care if he turns out to be the ultimate savior at the end of this series. I STILL will NOT like him! Crazy little BEN! I can't believe that he actually killed John! Again! After stopping his suicide and telling him how special he was. Maybe it's because I was super tired while watching this episode, but I completely did NOT see that coming! I mean...WOW!
Of course, he killed John before. And has killed multiple others, but I thought he was doing what Jacob wanted. That there was some higher purpose. But now I know that I was wrong. Sorry that I am so slow on the uptake. I thought that Ben was the island leader. I am doubting that now too. Remember when Jacob said "Help Me"? If Widmore was the leader then got tricked out by Ben, Ben could have just assumed leadership and told everyone that Jacob had given him the power. No one questions Jacob.
Fortunately, John is no longer dead. And he is standing over Ben's bed. Now, I don't want John to kill Ben, but I do want him to do...something! I don't know what. Just something. Aaaaah!
Now Jack trusts Ben. Sun, Sayid, Hurley and Kate do not. I hope everyone else can convince Jack to jump ship, but I'm worried that he will end up convincing them to trust Ben. And then they will all die. And I will cry and probably throw something at the TV. :(
