Did anybody catch the line Ben said to Jack (I think) about the other random passengers in the tail section? I'm paraphrasing:
Jack: "What's going to happen to all those people back there?" Ben: "Who cares?"
At first I thought it was just Ben being a cold bastard but after a second I started laughing, seeing the tongue-in-cheek reference to how we barely learned a single thing about the Oceanic 815 Tailies.
What's wrong w/ Michael pulling a knife on Pope? He obviously didn't want to do it, but what other choice did he have? Linc is locked away in solitary, so he had to get him out somehow. That was really the only way.
