Meh, I guess. It's not that I didn't like him, I just didn't see why everyone liked him. Plus, seeing as how much everyone (me included) detests lying/liars, I just find it odd that he was so popular. Oh well. 6 to 1, half a dozen to another.

Does that mean you hate Ben, Locke, Jack, Hurley, Kate, Penny, Sun, Sayid...

liars. lol  ;)

I hate lying in REAL life...in LOST land...it's A-OKay.

I guess more accurately phrased, I hate the lies, not the liars.

but still .. to hate a character for the reason of they are a liar... um its a television show. Ben lies all the time and thats what makes his character great. he's expectedly unexpecting. and did i mention... this is only a television show.

i've only caught up on this thread so far...but can we get back to richard needing the body?  why is Paul's body proof of "justice" if richard's people killed him in the first place?  what is this truce that amy and paul violated by having a picnic?  i'm slightly discombobulated (still).

Only slightly?! I'm thoroughly confused and can't wait until Wednesday when we will hopefully get some more answers!

Arzt-Arzt-Arzt, all up in you face.

Just kidding, anyway...My view is that the truce that was broken was probably a boundary like Tom set up with Jack back in season 2. If you listen to Amy when Sawyer and friends are back in the bushes, she is saying something to the effect of,...'We were just having a picnic, we didn't know how far...' Is that reason enough to kill Paul?? No, I don't think so, but I'm not an other.

As far as the issue of justice, well, even though the Others killed Paul, 2 of them were also killed, and I think that Richard wanted to show that even though they lost 2 of their own, they went out fighting. Not so much as justice, but more like, honor. And I know you're thinking, or about to say, "they didn't go out fighting, they killed him first", and my preemptive response is this. Richard can tell them whatever he wants.

Why does this make so much sense now having someone else explain it?

It's like when someone else makes dinner. Just tastes better.  :)

That's just my take on it. But thanks.
