I am trying to get straight who wants the 06 to come back and who does not.
Ben - wants them to come back
Richard Alpert - wants them to come back
Charlotte - warns that no one should come back
Dream version of Claire - does not want Kate to bring Aaron back
And as far as I know, that's it. Everyone else expressing an opinion is colored by one of the above people's desire.
Christian - has never expressed anything about it
Jacob - he may or may not actually be speaking through Christian. Either way, no opinion
Widmore - I generally assume that Widmore wants the opposite of whatever Ben wants, but I have no idea on this one.
All the others, except Ellie Hawking, are just pawns--Jack, Kate, Hurley, etc--trusting in Ben or common sense or dreams of Claire.
Anyone got any other info? I am curious as to where Widmore stands. He must be against it since it seems to serve Ben somehow. I think Ben, however, has some plan that differs to Alpert and his reason for wanting the 06 back.
And if we see Claire and being with Christian, then they are on the side of "Do not come back!"
And after Christian's thing last week about "I told you, not Ben, to turn the wheel" I think it is clear that he sometimes is not as clear as he should be. In other words, though he seemed to help Locke to finally turn the wheel, I do not think he is in favor of the plan to bring the 06 back.
Any thoughts or opinions?
