Respuestas: Tom a.k.a. Mr. Friendly likes to get friendly with high class Latino male escorts. I, for one, am not surprised. I knew he was gay when he told Kate that she was “not [his] type”. I bet Tom volunteered to go on missions off the Island a lot. It’s got to be pretty lonely being the only gay Other. At least Juliet could hook up with Goodwin and Ben could watch sullenly. Tom could have none of that. He was the only person on that God-forsaken Island without a love triangle. He didn’t even have a love line. He was just a point.
The Island has far reaching powers. Michael couldn’t kill himself because the Island would let him. So, this means Hurley wasn’t going crazy when he saw Charlie at the mental hospital.
Widmore and Ben are pointing fingers over the fake 815 wreckage. This might be my hippie ancestry speaking, but I trust owners of billion-dollar corporations less than former janitors with big ambitions. I think Widmore has a bit more expertise when it comes to dealing with shady businesses and the world outside. He has the contacts, the political clout, and the hush money that allow him to hatch whatever morbid plots he desires. Like Ben said about Sawyer, “back in the real world” Ben is nothing but a janitor. Sure, he has the money and the contacts, but he doesn’t have any political power because of his wish to remain anonymous.
Future!Sayid must be filled with self-loathing himself because present!Sayid hates Michael for killing people to save his friends on the Island which is that same thing Future!Sayid does. More foreshadowing.

Why was Michael feeling more guilt about killing Libby than killing Ana-Lucia?
Why was Sayid so rash this episode? He usually takes time and consideration into making big decisions. He just busted Michael out to the captain two minutes after he heard Michael’s side of the story. Is the cabin fever getting to Sayid and making him more restless?
