Has anyone who has read the Harry Potter series noticed how Ben's redemption parallel's the a scene in the HP books? It's the scene where Harry asked Dumbledore why he is not the Minister of Magic. Dumbledore's answer was that through past experience he had come to realise that he is not meant to be a leader. In the past when he had tried to attain power it was through force, although he had convinced himself it was for the better good. His actions led to the death of his sister an innocent. Ben sort power through force, he had convinced himself that what he was doing was for the betterment of the Island in the OT; the kids in the Highschool in the FS. But when faced with the consequences of his actions he made the decision to look out for Alex and give up his power. Whereas in the past he sacrificed an innocent, Alex, to keep his power. Ben's redemption is that like Dumbledore he realises that absolute power corrupts absolutely!!! Darlton has often referenced the HP books in interviews. --Evelyn10 04:08, March 11, 2010 (UTC)
