In episode 47 of We Have To Go Back Podcast we take a look back at LOST season 5 episodes 7, “The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham,” and episode 8, “LaFleur.” As Locke leaves the island he is taken to a Tunisian hospital and met by Charles Widmore. Widmore gives Locke the resources he needs to round up the Oceanic 6 and return them all to the island, but Locke fails. Ben Linus saves Locke from a moment of despair, but finishes Locke off once Locke gives him the info he needs. We talk about all of the developments with the characters and some of the interesting death scenes in our discussion of, “The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham.”
In our discussion of “LaFleur” we talk about the all the events that happened on the island after Locke left. We discuss the relationship that has developed between Sawyer and Juliet, the importance of Sawyer being able to move on after killing the real Sawyer, the birth of Ethan Rom, how LaFleur was able to calm the situation between the hostiles and the Dharma camp, and the arrival of Kate, Jack, and Hurley.
Next up we continue season 5 with “Namaste” and “He’s Our You.”
