Part of “Old Info And News”
1) Ben’s pants are on fire! And I’m guessing Juliet’s are, too. That seemingly untrustworthy she-devil obviously seems to be a part of a bigger plan by Ben to get Jack to trust someone, but Jules at least was telling the truth when she said this: Ben is a liar, and a dangerous man. We’ve known this from the first day we laid eyes on the artist then known as Henry Gale, when his captor, Rousseau, warned, “Know this. He will lie. A long time. He will lie.” Nutty Frenchy-poo wasn’t so nutty after all, was she?
2) Speaking of Nutty Frenchy-poo, we will begin to see more of her daughter, Alex, next week, who will have a substantial role this season, and slowly, the revelation of why The Others have abducted so many children. Gaa! And speaking of…
3) Crazy theory of the week: If Juliet and some of the other Others really do want to kill Ben, why haven’t they just done it? Well, what if that little girl we were supposed to see in Jack’s room in the season premiere (the one ABC had a photo of on the media site) is Juliet’s daughter? Is Ben somehow holding her, and other children, hostage (a la Walt) as a way to keep the parents under his creepy little thumb? Discuss in the comments below!
