that there is a sociopath on the island named Ben Linus who is willing to kill everyone and anything on the island to keep it for himself?

He just isn't that bright.Read more >
All in all it was a good episode filled with excitement, intrigue and drama.
But as always, some of the scenes has left me scratching my head a bit.
1. Anyone get the feeling Jacob could have just invited these people to the island and told them the circumstances and offered the job to his "candidates"? I mean, that's what he did anyway.

The whole episode is about her manipulation on Jacob that eventually leads him to throw his brother into the light which turns him into the new smoke monster.
She left the game on the beach to start a rivalry between the two boys. She used her "smokey" powers to appear as MIB's real mother and guide him to the others. She saw that MIB had all the qualities to b…Read more >
I have never referred to any of my brothers as simply an old "friend."
The writers could have done better than this...Read more >
