That needle looked like something you'd use on a horse or other large animal.

A prick on the bum may have made the horse that Kate saw run away from the OTHERS camp. Then again. I don't think a horse would swim to another island!

Maybe the needle was for the bears?
Horses COULD swim to another island , but I'm not necessarily saying that they WOULD.

Horses can swim. But that distance against currents of sea?
And the horse might indeed be from their camp, NOT the Hydra, but the crater village.
Ben said he hates needles. I can imagine a bear needle then... LOL
or perhaps he was talking about Marty McFly.

Benry then grew up with the Dharma folks once they arrived. Maybe the "hostiles" were already there before Dharma as well, and took him as a baby while killing what few survivors were left, and then the Dharma people rescued him at a young age after they arrived...that's why he's so beholden to that group of people, why he keeps saying "We're the good guys" (which is the way you'd talk to a child if you're trying to convince them you mean them no harm...he's just repeating what the Dharma people told him as a child)...Benry grew into a natural born leader and gave his entire being and faith into the Dharma Initiative, seeing as how they gave him a healthy and safe surrounding after being part of the "hostiles" as a child after his parents died...he bought into their goals and purpose 1,000% and is fully committed to them.


The above is from a thread called Benry/Adam and Eve - maybe need to read the whole post to get it fully but it basically says that Ben was taken from his parents (who were possibly survivors of an earlier plane crash) as a baby - much like Walt was taken and they attempted to take Aaron. Maybe he was injected in the same way as Claire and now has a fear of needles.

Adds to that theory and gives a reason for him to state that line.
