Mac shares a few "Lost" thoughts with Mother Jones
The conversation was chock full of insights (and snark -- oh how I do love snark!), but there were two points that really struck me:
1. Ben and Widmore (should he return, which I think he will) could play "seconds" for Jacob and Flocke. And extending this out a bit -- any character could be a stand-in for Jacob or MIB for that matter. It's an interesting idea to play with.
2. There's also the possibility that Widmore and Ben could become unlikely allies in a fight against Flocke. If both love the island dearly, and both perceive Flock to be a threat to its existence, perhaps it's time to put petty differences aside and cowboy up. Or something like that.
Anyway, lots more over at Mother Jones.
