Well, Ben just personally handed me the last file that he wanted me to look at, and I immediately knew why he was purposely holding it from me until the end, as soon as I saw the name on the tab: Victoria Allmand. Vicki! My ex-fiancee! She was on the same plane as me, and I didn't even know it!! All this time, I assumed that she had stayed in Oregon, but it turns out that she decided to take advantage of the plane tickets that I'd already bought for our honeymoon, flew to Australia, hung around Sydney doing whatever by herself, and then boarded my flight home, somehow without me ever knowing! And now, she's apparently on this island with the rest of the survivors from her section of the plane! I really don't know what to think about this, and it's sort of freaking me out. I don't even know whether or not Vicki knew that I was on her plane or if she even suspects that I'm on the Island. This had to have been why Harper kept bringing Vicki up in all those sessions! Fortunately, her file is marked P3, and she wasn't on Jacob's list, which means I'm not very likely to ever encounter her on the Island.
I asked Ben if there was something in particular that he wanted me to do with this knowledge, but he said he just wanted me to be aware that my ex-fiancee is on the Island, and he wanted to grant me the courtesy of telling me in person. He doesn't want me to take any action that would jeopardize the safety of our people or the Island, nor does he want me to go out of my way to avoid Vicki if we ever encounter a situation where I'd have to face her. I thanked Ben for bringing this to my attention, and then he left the camp to go on a journey across the Island by himself. He's apparently going to the Oceanic survivors' camp to try to make contact with John Locke, since he's not getting anywhere with Dawson or his kid. Once again, I just have to hope that Ben knows what he's doing. In the meantime, I get to freak out some more about this Vicki thing. Maybe helping Eli gather some firewood will help take my mind off of this.
