Some Thoughts on LOST

Posted by

Is it possible that Widmore is the developer of a large scale weapon (the black smoke) and that Benjamin Linus is not the enemy we all have envisioned, but rather, a wary do-gooder hippie type afraid that Widmore will destroy the island in the process? Could Ben be protecting the island? Is it possible that his secrecy is because he knows that anyone, anywhere, under any circumstance, could be a Widmore spy?

If Ben knew and understood the evil of Widmore, he might not trust ANY of the Losties. In fact, if this were the case, imagine the big reveal when we find out that one of our own is, and always has been, a Widmore spy! What if it were revealed that Bernard or Juliet or Sawyer was undercover the whole time? Better yet – Sun’s father has worked with Widmore, Jin works for him… could Jin be the one?

Ben seems to have some evil ways, but if he knew that someone intended to purge the island to resume development of the greatest weapon the world has ever known, he might be suspicious of everyone – even in his own camp before the crash of 815.

Here are some random mysteries that need further explanation: the 4 toed statue, Richard Alpert not aging, the Hostiles pre-Dharma, “The List,” Jacob, Walt, the Dharma project and all of its research, The Black Rock and why Widmore wanted it, who Alvar Hanso is, who Tovard Hanso is, who Magnus Hanso is, their connection to the island, how Lenny (the guy who shared the numbers with Hurley) got off the island how Libby factored into everyone’s life, why Kate says Aaron is her son, and about 200 others.

We’ve got a long way to go, but slowly, things are beginning to unravel.

  1. I think Libby might have been Widmore’s spy. She is the one who gave Desmond the boat to run for Widmore’s race…

    We will be seeing Libby again soon btw…

  2. I have been watching the show since season 2, and I really am not sure the writers even have the answers to your questions.

    I am nearly convinced at this point that they are not going anywhere with it and are trying to just leave a bunch of unanswered questions with people to string them along.

    I read somewhere that they were not planning to have Ben on the show for that long. He was to be killed but when they saw the bug eyed bastard perform they decided to write him permanently into the show.

    I am afraid that they are going to kind of keep bringing in new unanswered questions and just cancel the show when viewership falls through without really doing a good job of bringing it all together. Call me a pessimist.

  3. Sorry, but you are wrong. The writers DO know the answers to these questions and they have a plan from the first season already (but not completely from the beginning of the series). Right now, Lost is going towards resolution.

    As for Ben being killed off, you are right and wrong. The writers wanted the actor who plays Ben to actually be ‘Henry’ and get eventually killed off. Then, they would have had a new actor to play Ben (in other words, the “Ben” character did exist in their plans). But when they saw how good the actor was, they wanted to keep him. And so they made him Ben for good. This doesn’t really change much of the overall plan.
