You Changed The Rules! | 04/24/08
This is an entry full of spoilers! Ok, I guess the big question is why Ben won't kill Widmore. He obviously can kill him--he's standing right there and surely between their many connections they could have killed each other long ago but haven't. It makes sense why Widmore wouldn't kill Ben--he knows where the island is. As for why Ben won't kill Widmore...I'm not sure.
Man I wanted to Claire to die. Her saying Chaw-Lee makes my skin crawl and I thought last night would be the end of hearing but no. On a side note, Hugo was right--Australia really is the key to winning Risk. I'm not really surprised that the militants killed Alex but I was hoping that we'd get the full story behind her relationship to Ben first. Oh well, at least they're killing people.
I was surprised how readily Sayid joined up with Ben. I know when you're sad and pissed you're more inclined to do irrational things but is Sayid really SO broken that he's just going to be a hired gun for Ben? I would have been curious to know how Ben would have talked himself out of that situation if Sayid hadn't shot that other guy.
