Since the boyfriend just got into Lost and we've watched the previous seasons recently, we had a long talk about Eko and Ben. I thought Ben would be judged for everything he had done so far (And in that case, we'd finally find out whether he's ultimately good or evil, or what he's lied about so far). He was only judged for Alex though and in that case, I don't think he necessarily deserved to die. He clearly loved her and wasn't expecting Keamy to shoot her. And Alex showing up after Smokey made up for the weird animation for me. I was completely shocked. I actually thought she was alive again, like Locke.

Eko on the other hand (Taking into consideration that the actor wanted to exit the show and the his co-stars wanted the same) refused to confess to Smokey and pretty much lost his case for judgement. I think if Ben had been judged for everything he had done or he had refused to accept John's leadership, he'd be playing chess with Eko right about now.

You should have had something about Benry's wigs last night (The wig budget on Lost must be terrible). My SO referred to it quite correctly as "Hitler" hair.

Aww, you always give Lost so much more deep analysis than I do! I hadn't really thought about it those terms, that Ben was judged just re: Alex. For example, shooting Cesar, how's the island feel about that? Apparently, just fine! (As do I, heh.)

I did forget to mention the wigs! I had nothing particularly funny to go with there and it's kind of a given that Lost flaskback wigs are always laughably awful. Maybe ack_attack or various icon makers will do the Hitler wig justice!

Ben lives while Eko did not:

I just tried to figure this out in my recap... I think maybe because Ben showed remorse whereas Eko stood by his past and his actions in it? Or maybe Smokey didn't like that Eko wasn't polytheistic because apparently Smokey is Egyptian and has some connection to Anubis. ;)

Ha, I didn't watch that segment that closely, tbh, but good one, LOLz. I think the upshot of that was to force Ben to follow Locke. Which... is that really wise? I think not!

You know, I am still not sure that Des and Penny are ok. What was Ben sorry about? Just for trying? But maybe I am just overly pessimistic.

between bad wigs and horrible smokey flashback it was quite a ridiculous episode. I got Alias vibes from that scene of Ben vs Smokey, but now that you mention it, it was very Indy, too!

Oh no, it would be beyond cruel to do anything dire to Desmond & Penny now!

Bad wigs and smokey FX were pretty laughable. Anyone with a torch in a temple makes me think of Indy!
