The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham

Tonight’s episode of Lost was INCREDIBLE.  Just finished watching it.  I don’t watch it when it airs because we have our church small group on Wednesday nights. I record it and watch it later.  It’s late now, but totally worth it.  One of the best episodes of the season, and it happens to be about my favorite character–John Locke!  Any fellow Losties out there want to share their thoughts on the episode?

    Well, I didn’t see it coming that Ben would choke him to death. I mean, what is his reasoning. I just don’t see that Ben still has any vendetta against Locke. He already shot him. Is he still mad about John Locke taking over as the leader of the Island?

    That could have something to do with it. I keep looking for a reason to like Ben, and those reasons keep being snatched from me. One of the articles I’ve read, though, paints Ben in a somewhat better light. The author points out that maybe Ben recognizes that Locke has lost his faith and can’t die faithless and expect to return to the island. He gives his pep talk to Locke, restores his faith, and then kills him because he is ready to die.

    Or maybe Ben knows that Locke can’t be resurrected unless someone else (Ben) kills him. Who knows!

    I never really thought about Locke havingbto restore his faith & Ben being the one to do that. I guess it makes sense.

    I really think the death of Helen got to Locke. He seemed to really take it hard.

    I think Locke holds resentment toward Ben for killing him. You could see it all over his facevwhen he saw Ben was hurt. He wants to hurt Ben.
