So, what exactly was non-traditional about this week’s episode of Lost? That most of the story was Michael’s flashback…or forward? I don’t know what it is anymore. I don’t know who is telling the truth. Ben tells Michael, Widmore is responsible for the cover-up. The Captain tells Sayid and Des, Ben is. Obviously, one of them is lying and the writers are genius manipulators; and we love that we’re so sucked into this.
