Petra in Yakima, Wash.: Can you tell me any more about the nature of Ben’s plan on Lost?
That’s just what I asked Evangeline Lilly yesterday at the Emmys, and she told me, “Hmmm? Is Ben’s plan’s coming together? Is Ben’s plan comprehensible is the question? Can anyone make sense of Benjamin Linus?” Ah, sounds like a classic Lost brainteaser! I also ran into Michael Emerson at the HBO party (he and his wife Carrie Preston are an adorable couple BTW) and asked him how Ben was going to get everyone to go along, and he said, “Oh, it’s not a question of why they should go along, it’s a question of do they want to survive.” In the words of the great thinker Shaggy: Zoinks!
