Ben the henchman
No. We have an episode where the smarmy, lying Ben is back, but he is using his guile for the good guys against MIB. He comes back and tries to neutralize Widmore before he can tell MIB what it needs to know to destroy Jack and the others. His justification that Widmore “doesn’t get to keep his daughter” would fit with the old Ben Linus. In fact I think he is just throwing powder into MIB’s eyes i order to survive long enough to hurt him more. The temptation of being left king of the island once MIB leaves would have appealed to the old Ben. In fact MIB thinks it is pushing all the right buttons, but Ben is a new man. He is over his Napoleon complex.
I am rooting for Ben to tag along and try to intervene on behalf of Jack and the others at a crucial moment.
In the FSW His continued rapproachment to Alex and Danielle, his protective stance towards Mr Locke all indicate a continued move towards the good guys. Maybe in the end his statement in season 3 “We’re the good guys” will prove to be true.
