On the Island

Off the Island

Intro: With Dogen and the temple dwellers dead, the survivors and Ilana set out for the beach.

Intro:Ben teaches European history in a middle school where Locke is a substitute teacher.
Jack from Lost
Jack
Jack's with Hurley and Richard out in the jungle. Richard divulges that when Jacob touches you it's considered a gift, but that's a curse. He wants Jack to kill him because his life has had no purpose. Jack lights the very long fuse on some dynamite. "Now," he says, "let's talk." He bets that he was brought to the island for a reason, and that the dynamite won't blow. It doesn't.

The three join the others at the beach at the end of the episode, where we see that Charles Widmore is watching them from a submarine.
The Man in Black
"Locke"
Ben's grave is about 3 feet deep when "Locke" shows up. He tells Ben he doesn't want him to die. He's gathering a group to leave for good, but once they're gone someone will need to be in charge of the island. The clamp falls off Ben's leg. "Locke" tells him where they'll be and that there's a gun waiting for him 200 yards away. He runs, with Ilana in pursuit.
Hurley from Lost
Hurley
Hurley lies in the sun, dreaming of cheese curds. Jack wakes him and they head off. Run into Richard. Hurley doesn't trust him, but they follow.

Richard tells Hurley he's not time traveling. Jacob gave him a gift. He tells Hurley and Jack that everyone at the temple is dead. Richard tells Hurley not to believe whatver Jacob's told him. Then he marches off into the jungle. He has something to do -- die.
Sun from Lost
Sun
Ilana says she wants to find Jin. She doesn't know if she's supposed to protect Jin, Sun, or both of them, since the name "Kwon" was listed as a candidate.
Jin from Lost
Jin
Ilana says she wants to find Jin. She doesn't know if she's supposed to protect Jin, Sun, or both of them, since the name "Kwon" was listed as a candidate.
Ben from Lost
Ben
Ilana hands Jacob's ashes to Miles and wants to know how he died. Miles says, "Linus killed him." He'd said the smoke monster killed Jacob.

Ilana puts a gun to Ben and forces him to lie face down away from the others. She clamps him and has him start digging his own grave.

Miles tells Ben, "Up until the second the knife went in his heart, Jacob hoped he was wrong about you."

Ben finds the gun that "Locke" left for him and holds it up to Ilana. He confesses to her that he chose the island over his daughter, all for Jacob. He sacrificed everything for Jacob, and he didn't even care. He says he's sorry he killed Jacob and can never forgive himself. All he wants is to be allowed to go to "Locke," because he's the only one that'll have me. "I'll have you," she says, and Ben trails behind.

Ben follows Ilana back tot he beach. he puts down his gun and asks Sun if she needs a hand.

John Locke from Lost
Locke
After hearing Ben criticize the school principal, he suggests that Ben would do a better job in the spot.
Teacher Ben
Ben
The principal asks him to oversee detention, a task he feels is beneath him and which forces him to cancel History Club.

Ben cares for his ill father, who says he wanted more for his son -- that's why he took him to that island, signed him up for the Dharma Initiative. There's a ring at the door. It's Alex, who's in the history club. On
the island she was Rousseau's daughter, whom Ben stole and raised. And killed.

During a tutoring session, Alex refers to the principal as a pervert. The principal and the school nurse were having sex in the nurse's office.

Ben hits up another teacher to access the nurse's email account because he wants to find out if she has an inappropriate relationship with the principal. The teacher realizes he's going after the top job.

Ben takes the incriminating emails to the principal. He tells the principal he wants the job. The principal turns the tables -- Alex asked for a recommendation, which he'll "torch" if Ben blackmails him.

Ben passed up the blackmail opportunity and Alex got her amazing recommendation. He also got out of detention.

Characters that aren't in both places.

I do like the Ben character and I am surprisingly pleased with his good side and that he did not go with Flocke; but the best part of this episode was the Richard vs Jack parts. I love that Jack now has a purpose and it is to get more info. And who do i what to know more about you ask - Richard that is who. Richard told is about his gift or curse. Does this mean other losties have a gift? Jack, Kate, Hurley (seeing dead people), Sawyer, Sun, Jin, . . . What about Miles? Was he touched as a baby on the island? Is that his gift to see how people died?
This episode just like many others have mad me wish it was Tuesday again. Why oh why can't i just wait for the DVD. Because I am lost.

B/25,

Good to see you posting again. I thought you might be lying in a hole of your own somewhere.

I think the flash sideways is what we are going to get. They are giving it to us character by character. Next comes Sawyer, then Richard. Later we get one with Desmond an another with Hurley and probably others. Will Sun and Jin ever get together and flip a coin to see which Kwon is on the cave wall? Anyways the LA X sideways is not the point. The point is what happens on the Island in 2007 to cause the island to sink and allow the LA X folks to land safely in 2004 ?

I liked this episode because we saw some characters act in ways they haven't before on the island. Jack finally made a statement about something that was going to happen and it actually did happen. The dynamite didn't explode. How many times in the 5.33 previous seasons did Jack make some statement that didn't happen or something caused it to change? Many if not all.

Ben realized that he doesn't have to be in charge of everything all the time. Having power is a big energy draining very stressful responsibility. He learned he can let others be in charge but he can still influence the outcome if he is paitent. I think he is going to be a deciding factor in the upcoming "war".

I think Jacob said someone is coming to the island and Jack needed to help them find it. I don't remember him saying if the folks coming were good or bad. He did say that the one going to the temple was bad. The question is if Widmore is coming to join forces with one side or the other or is he his own "army"?

Ilana is a whole nother can of worms. We don't know much about Richard but we know less about her.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

What did everyone think of this episode. I had to watch it a few times, like I do with all the episodes. I really don't like this new ALT thing, I used to like the flashbacks, but when I watch these flashsideways, Im not sure if it's real. I'm more interested in what's going on at the island because I think that what is going on there is real?...... Is it?

Widmore, hmm, I wonder how he knew there was a war coming. I also wonder if everyone is flashsidewaysing, even the dead....why isn't Widmore? Maybe he's at the island and flashsidewaysing back in that ALT world?? More confusion to think about.

I also felt sorry for Ben, ever since Ben came back to the island in Season 5, little by little his power has been taken away. I want Ben to be the leader again.

If I'm not mistaken, didn't Jacob say that whoever is coming to the island is bad? I wonder if Jacob meant Widmore. I'm so confused at this point who's bad and who's good. Who's real and who's not.

Well, I think this flashsideways had a better story, I guess, so far. Arzt is still an outcast, Locke gave some advice to Ben. Ben gave Arzt his parking spot. It was all about giving. But the storyline with the princible was a bit eeby jeeby for me.But in the end, Ben put Alex first, I liked that. Oh, I liked that Roger wasn't abusive to Ben. Nobody has daddy issues anymore, terrific!! Even Cooper is 1 of 3 people that Helen wants at her & Locke's wedding.

Back to the island, I have to say, was Ben a professional grave digger in a flashback that I missed? For someone who was digging his own grave, it was absolutely perfect, if that was me, miine would of looked like whatever that thing is in Claire's crib...now that made more sense.

When Ben said to Ilana that nobody would have him, that really got to me. I liked that she said "I'll have you."
