It's the question on most people's mind, and it's been puzzling me for the last week or so. Is Widmore really the good guy in this situation? Locke did give good reasons not to trust Widmore, such as bringing the freighter full of mercenary freaks to the island. But in the end, the question still stands: is Widmore the bad guy or the good guy?
I stand by my state of mind from near the end of season four, though; I really think that Ben is a good person. I think that Widmore is just lying to move fantically towards the island, and I have no trust for him. And though Ben has done many bad things (the most recent being killing Locke), I really believe that Ben is the good guy.
I would love to hear what people think.
