Ben has been “claimed” his entire life
Written 16th February
I just re-watched the season five finale and we know that Richard takes little Ben to the Temple. Now we don’t see what exactly happened BUTTTTT I think it is safe to assume since he was “saved” he was placed in the spring. Now we saw Sayid on the verge of death be revived but he was obviously altered. Now, if this happened to little Ben he might have been claimed by something from the spring. Richard also said he would never be the same again. The problem is we have no idea who claimed Ben or who side he is on.
