Episode 408 – “Meet Kevin Johnson”
Sayid and Desmond confront Michael on the freighter and want to know what he’s doing there. He explains that he’s working for Ben and in a flashback we see how he came to be on the boat. Back in Manhattan, Michael is no longer living with Walt. He writes him a letter and then goes and smashes his car into a brick wall. At the hospital Michael thinks he sees Libby but she’s not there. He then goes to get a gun and shoot himself when Tom turns up. They fight and Tom says the island won’t let Michael die, he still has work to do and that he should come see him.

When Michael sees the wreckage of Flight 815 on the news he goes to see Tom who is indulging himself with a male partner. He explains that Charles Widmore put the dummy wreckage at the bottom of the ocean so people would stop looking for the real one and accidently stumble upon the island. He shows him a file with graves of all the bodies taken and a payment for a aeroplane. Tom tells Michael to go onto a boat and kill everyone. Once Michael finally gets the courage to blow the ship up the bomb he was given has a note that says “not yet” and he gets a call from Ben.

Ben tells Michael there are innocent people on board and unlike Charles Widmore he doesn’t kill innocent people. He tells Michael to sabotage the boat so it’ll never find the island and compile a list of names. We catch up and Sayid decides to turn Michael in to the Captain as a traitor and a survivor of Flight 815.

On the island Locke calls a meeting where they discuss everything with Ben. He reveals his spy is Michael and they plan their next step. Ben takes Alex aside and tells her she needs to be safe, the people coming to the island will use her to get to him so she needs to go to the Temple. Danielle takes Alex and Karl but on the way they are attacked. Karl and Danielle are shot dead but Alex pleads for mercy screaming she’s Ben’s daughter.

Episode 409 – “The Shape of Things To Come”
A body washes up on the beach and Daniel and Charlotte identify him as the ships doctor. They use the satellite phone to send Morse code to the boat to try and find out what happened. The boat replies and Daniel says the helicopter is coming tomorrow morning. Bernard says he’s lying and that the message really said “what are you talking about the doctor is fine”.

At the barracks Locke receives a telephone call whilst playing Risk (where Hurley says Australia is the key to the whole game) which just repeats 14-J. They asks Ben about it who suddenly arms up and says they’re coming. They block the door to the house and Sawyer rushes to save Claire. Gunshots are fired as Sawyer tries to get to Claires house but an RPG puts it up in flames. Sawyer finds Claire and brings her to where everyone else is holding up.

Miles appears at the front door with a radio, they want to talk to Ben, they have his daughter. The man identifies himself as Keamy and Ben says he knows all about him, what sort of person he is and that he will kill everyone once he has Ben. Keamy says he is going to kill Alex if Ben doesn’t turn himself over but Ben says she’s not his daughter and she means nothing to him. Keamy kills Alex. Ben rushes into his secret room behind a bookcase and locks the door behind him. When he returns he is covered in soot and dirt. He says in a moment they’ll all need to run for the treeline. The room shakes and the smoke monster appears, attacking the mercenaries.

Sawyer decides he is going to take Claire and the baby and go back to the beach, Miles goes with them but Locke won’t let Hurley go too. He needs him to find the cabin.

He attacks some natives and checks in at a hotel as a preferred guest. He sees Sayid on the news and we next see him in Iraq. Sayid spots him and questions what he’s doing there. Ben explains that he knows who killed Sayids wife and shows him a picture. When following the killer Ben gets caught but Sayid appears and gets revenge. He says this is now their war and wants another name.

Ben appears in London, England and makes his way to a Penthouse suite. He wakes Charles Widmore and tells him that he changed the rules when he killed his daughter and now he is going to kill Penny. Charles says he’ll never find her and Ben says he’ll never find the island. The game is on.
