Just a quick post to say: the Others have such a sense of entitlement! Even if they've been "chosen" by the Island, they seem to act like everyone else is worthless. "We're not in the habit of revealing our secrets to strangers then letting them saunter off into the jungle." What secrets? A pool of water? Some old tents? Please.
I'm starting to hope the Others Locke is leading are different than those we see in the past, and possibly those at the Temple, because the high-and-mighty attitudes of the Others so far (even including Ben's run as leader) don't really seem to fit with the Island, and it's making me think THEY are the usurpers, rather than Dharma. Perhaps the Others are not the original inhabitants at all, save possibly Richard. And he seems to have his own agenda.
