I think Ben will put on his little boy face and John will just forgive him. I think that may be the quality that John has and thats what makes him so SPECIAL.....his ability to forgive. Just like GOD!

This is awesome.  I have never thought of this - his willingness to forgive.

No kidding!  It's a positive spin on what most people call a fault of Locke's - him being too naive.

Solost really hit the nail on the head.  Locke LOOKS so weak.  But Jacob asked him for help.  There is so much more than we realize to him.

And Jacob would not be asking for Locke's help if he didn't have good reason to!

High five on that!  That was really the beginning of the end for Linus. 

BTW, ESB, I love your avi!

John can't kill Ben because Ben is one of his people.  He can't kill his people.  Isn't that what he said when young Widmore escaped and John chose not to shoot him?

I like this reasoning the best! even if ben was disowned in jacobs mind. he was still an other! ;) and it's probably the same rule that widmore and Ben have together.  :o
