"The Life and Death of Jeremey Bentham"

For those who do not know, Jeremey Bentham was a philosopher. Johne Locke was, too.

No, I'm not talking about the bald guy from Lost. These people existed in real life, and it's pretty interesting that the survivor who knows most about the island is named John Locke, and takes on the name Jeremy Bentham when he leaves the island.

Poor, poor Locke. He wants nothing more then to save everyone, and give them a good life. But each time he goes to one of the Oceanic 6, he is slapped in the face. Jack owes a big thanks to Locke, and when they're reunited on the island, better treat him like a king.

Is John still in fact a king? I mean, he died, but is now alive again. Could the island not let him die? It's clearer then ever before that Locke is, indeed, "special".

And while we're talking about the death of Jeremy Bentham, lets talk about Widmore and Ben. Towards the end of Season 4, I began to like Ben. I was on his side. I felt bad for him when his daughter died, and wanted him to kill Keamy. But now, it seems like Widmore is on Locke's side. I believed him until Ben told Locke not to kill himself. But then, he goes right over and strangles him. Why? I have no idea, but we might find out in the coming weeks what is going on in Ben's sick mind.

Every week I will end my post with the top three questions I want answered. They are:
1). Why did Ben kill Locke?
2). How did Locke come back to life?
3). Where's the rest of the Oceanic 6?
