Ah yes, leave it to Ben to have yet another door that let him release smokey?   
The ironic thing is that the house is small, so to have the secret room and then another one that is leading to a cave or perphaps Jacob...

well, point is here we go again with Ben.

Maybe Ben is a twin and that is why he needs all those extra rooms

What was inside that room?  Looked like cave drawings or runes or something.

It was obviously a cave.. he came out all dirty.. covered in soot or something..

On second thought..Maybe he's not controlling smokie.. but just literally opened the gates to let smokie in..

HE might of been opening something up for smokie, but he was confident in what the results were going to be and that he was not going to get attacked

I agree, but he did want to be away from the freighters, as if Smokie is like a trained bear, he can do tricks but don't let him get hungry!

Im starting to think more and more that there is a little box on the island that can bring you anything you want.  Just like Ben told Locke.

Anyone else think this.

Maybe Smokey operates like a decision tree, sensing then attacking the most serious threats to the island first.  In which case, Ben felt confident that Smokey would leave the lesser threat (himself, the Losties) alone, so let him into Othertown.

I think it more likely that Smokey is like Hal, and Ben went down his little cave to the Smokey control room, and changed Smokey's parameters.

What I'd like to know is, when we will learn about the underground system of tunnels indicated by the blast door map?  The fact that Ben didn't use them in this crisis suggests that, if they ever existed, they are no longer operable. I.e. they collapsed, flooded, etc.

Ben's allusion to Widmore's 'breaking the rules' provides an explanation for why Ben hasn't used the iron fist of Smokey more liberally in the past, and instead depended on his more subtle tactics.  Now with the gloves off, we're guaranteed more wonderful zaniness from the show.

Maybe Smokie gained access to them and now they aren't safe to travel?

Oh and I love the title about Smokie hiding 'in the closet'.  Maybe all Ben had to do was tell Smokie that Tom was dead and that set him off!   ;D

I think it seems like a pretty sure bet that the tunnels under the island are Smokey's domain.  Smokey tried to drag Locke undergound. The blast door map talked about the C.V.'s ("Cerberus Vents"? was that confirmed or just speculation?) -- but Cerberus (Greek mythology's three headed hound guarding the underworld) seems like it's got to be Smokey's name.  Ben just so happens to have a convenient entrance to Cerberus's lair right from his secret room!

I don't remember if anything has been officially confirmed about Smokey being Cerberus, but I think it's a safe bet that that's his name.  When it was attacking Juliet and Kate, it had 3 dog faces, or maybe it was just one.  I don't remember.
