Lost: Are You My Father?

Awesome episode last night, great recap Tom. I won't bother covering the same ground, but yeah - that Clockwork Orange scene might have actually been more disturbing than the scene in Clockwork Orange itself.  Or maybe that's just how crazy scary it was in HD. I dunno.

Anyway, here's the only thing that bugged me about last night's episode, and honestly I tossed and turned last night until I came up with a plausible solution. Seriously, I have trouble sleeping thinking about these things. I know, it's sad. Don't judge me.

So they made it pretty clear that Alex was referring to Ben when she kept talking about "my father." I didn't like that one bit, and here's an attempt to logically lay out why:

-Unless something's been retconned (or just wasn't correct in the first place), Rousseau is Alex's mother
-Rousseau claimed her baby, Alex, was fathered by her lover, Robert
-Ben looks way younger than Rousseau, and besides thinking about them hooking up is creepy
-Rousseau also claimed she was seven months pregnant when they landed
-Ben claims he's lived on the island his whole life

I could keep going on, but it just doesn't make any sense for Ben to be shacking up with Rousseau and fathering our favorite rebel Other. I was actually kind of mad about it for a while, and like I said - I couldn't stop mulling it over.

Then, in the shower this morning, it came to me: Ben/the Others stole Alex as a baby. Duh. They could tell her Zeus is her father if they wanted to. Honestly, that's the only thing that can reconcile this for me - and the more I think about it, the more it's got to be the case.

Maybe it was clear for other people, and I'm not sure why I didn't think of Ben lying in the first place, but it did bother me for a while.  Anyway, mostly I'm just glad Lost is back.
