ben and the monitoring station
« on: October 12, 2006, 12:53:55 PM »
If you lookclosely at Ben watching the monitoring TV's and listening to Sawyer talking one screen is on him one on Kate,one on Jack,one looks like a cage but has a blip going through screen like old fuzzy TV then there is one of a bed.
What's up with that?

Looked like some were on empty cages or rooms.

Ben is just a voyeur, and enjoys watching people...
I wonder who was the last people in the other monitoring station. I'm sure Ben spent some hours watching Des, maybe he even tried to get in.

Was it actually Ben, though? I couldn't tell for sure.

Same stripped shirt. Looked like him, but I don't want to get the whole clone/twin debate going. Yes it was Ben.

ok... I just wasn't looking at the guy, but more at the monitors at that point.

We also saw the monitors at the beginning of the episode, when Julie went to see Ben, he opened the door and you could see the monitors behind him with Jack on one of the monitors.

Ok. I was actually going to ask if that room was the monitoring room. Makes sense then.

Check out this page for all of the details on the monitoring screens and what is on them...pretty good stuff!
http://lost.cubit.net/forum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=193

or...
The shots from the monitors on the top left and right that show trees are from the scene where Sayid and jin are waiting by the boat, and the scene from the season two premiere where walt is standing in the woods dripping wet. Pictures to compare:

Fantastic work. Did Ben/ the others know that jin and sayid were in the trees/ i wonder- maybe that's why they came by sea..

One if by land... two if by sea...

I still don't think that they came by boat, but they could have. The only thing is that we didn't ever see another boat, and we had plenty of shots where we WOULD see the boat.

Those pics of the monitors are really neat. Anyone think that "Ben" is wearing glasses?? It really looks like it, but who knows.  :-\
Also, if Sayid and Jin were in the trees watching the woods (where the camera is pointed to as well) then where were the cameras mounted? It looked like the exact same view..same level, same angle...could a camera be ON one of them??

And these "Others" didn't waltz up the dock..so explain how they got there JB...cuz I'm coming to the conclusion of row boat or something like that and were emptied off their boat onto the sailboat then the other boat took off. JUST AN OPTION...

Why didn't they waltz up the dock? They are sneaky lil b@$t@rd$...they could walk in through your front door without you knowing it. Plus, Sayid and Jin weren't watching the dock. They were watching the fire.

But the dock was still within view...they had no problem seeing the boat once those shots were fired.
