Respuestas: I just want to start off 由 saying that Michael Emerson’s portrayal of Ben is nothing short of genius. He 偷了 the 显示 tonight. He showed much 更多 range than what we’re used to seeing.
That being said, Ben had a good bit of character development this episode. The long standing belief that Ben has a crush on Juliet was confirmed. Whether he genuinely loves her 或者 merely feels that he owns her is up to debate.
I believe part of him loves Juliet and would do anything for her. As a fertility specialist, she is 表演 like a mother to the whole island 由 attempting to bring new life back to it. He can’t help but yearn for a woman who will make him the father of a whole new nation. He also wants her to fill the hole in his 心 that was left when he 迷失 his mother.
According to Harper, Juliet “look[s] just like her”. My guess is that the woman in 问题 is Annie, Ben’s childhood friend and first love. He killed her along with his innocence in the purge. Ben is trying to go back to less complicated time through Juliet.
In another sense, Ben feels that Juliet is like the wooden doll Annie carved for him. She is his to hold. His perfect little woman. Ben is still very childish in that he believes that people can be owned. He just doesn’t understand that he can’t control who people 爱情 because he was raised without love.
