when ceasar was in the hydra right before he finds the shotgun, he ruffles through some papers one being a map of the island. More importantly a piece of paper that had a bunch of lines on it and time travel phrases written all over it. my point is, is that Ben is not as helpless right now as we thought, not by a long shot. He appears to have some kind of time travels instructions and not to mention HE WAS BUILDING AN EFFIN RUNWAY DIRECTLY IN THE RIGHT SPOT FOR AJIRA 316. Ben once said his famous words of "I always have a plan". I think he knows eactly what hes doing and i think he knows jacob very well. two more relevant quotes before I go, "Ben is exactly where he wants to be" from season 4, and "I came here for you john locke". From season 2.
