    So does that make Elena Boromir? Is Ben Saruman? Or is Locke Saruman?

    I’m slightly mollified by your theory as to why Elena died, but it seems to me that she was the worst kind of pawn – a pawn of the plot(ters).

    Hmmm… Elena as Boromir. I like it.

    And they’re all pawns of the plot. As are we. Just along for the ride, man.

    Trust is the hardest thing to cultivate and the easiest thing to lose. People like to be led and gravitate toward the person they perceive as the most likely winner. Once that choice is made they are loathe to change it because it is an admission of failure. Unfortunately it’s easy to confuse charisma or simply being loud with ability and action.

    That line of thinking reminds me of Stephen King’s The Stand. Which is more or less the direction I think LOST is headed this season. It certainly explains why Sawyer (a pragmatic guy if ever there was one) went with unLocke’s camp.

    I dunno though. Stranded on a desert island of mystery–I think I’d trust the leader deemed least likely to murder me as soon as I’m expendable…
