I think it is pretty sad that such a formal bad ass like Ben Linus has basically had no part in the final season whatsoever. I mean this is the guy that "always has a plan" and especially in seasons 4 and 5 was an integral part of the show and now he has just disappeared. With that being said though, I think there is going to be a major moment involving Ben and Widmore and Ben might even have a plan on stopping MiB. (I mean he always has a plan right?) Does Ben even know that Widmore is on the island yet? I am hoping we will see some Ben redemption in the final episodes especially because I have always been a Ben fan but I am pretty pissed at him for killing my top 2 favorite characters of the show (Locke and Jacob).
