I'm still confused by this. In Season 4 Faraday and Charlotte were certain that Ben was going to release the poison gas in The Tempest and kill everyone on the island. However, that would involve killing the Others, something i don't think even Ben would do. Annoyingly, as Faraday disabled the station, its still a mystery as to whether or not Ben was planning indeed planning this. My questions are:
Why were Faraday and Charlotte certain that Ben was planning to release the toxic gas?
Did he actually intend to do so?
What would be his (supposed) motives for doing this?
