I don’t think anyone will disagree with me if I say that last night’s Lost episode “One of Us” kicked some serious ass. We found out a lot more about The Others, Sayid once again proved to be the smartest person on the island, and it was revealed that Juliet is still working for Ben.
What I don’t understand though is that some of you have left comments saying that Juliet is a really evil person.
In the Lost episode we saw several times how Juliet only wanted to do good but time after time was convinced by Ben to keep doing what he needed her to do.
Like Jack said, the thing in the world Juliet wants the most is to leave the island. To be fair, Jack obviously doesn’t know Juliet as well as he thinks he does, but in this case I believe he was right.
Juliet really wants to leave the island and she believes that the only person who can take her home is Ben, or possibly Jacob, so she probably figures that if she wants to go home she has no choice but to continue playing along with Ben’s plans.
This feeling of focused dedication is mirrored in Locke who would do anything to stay on the island, and was in a way reflected in Michael’s willingness to do anything to save Walt.
What I’m wondering is what will happen if Juliet finds out that Ben isn’t actually able to let her go home…
