"The Man Behind the Curtain" "The Shape of Things to Come" "Dead Is Dead" "Dr. Linus" "The New Man in Charge" Locke hung up the phone, after hearing this. In classical Greek mythology, Linus was a god-gifted musician who taught Heracles how to play the lyre. He also promised to reveal the secrets of the Island to Locke, and started by showing him that the Others had Locke's father, Anthony Cooper, in captivity. Sayid and Locke did not believe his claims, but Jack was more open-minded to the possibility that he was telling the truth. Ben quipped, "You never made soup for me."

He also revealed to everyone that Michael is his spy on the boat, much to their shock and anger. That same night, he saw his mother's ghost in the jungle. Before he could deal with this, Locke walked into the camp bearing his father's dead body. Fortunately, she was wearing a bullet-proof jacket.

Due to his surveillance on all the members of the Oceanic Six, which he claimed was to keep them safe, Ben became aware that Locke had left the Island.

("The Shape of Things to Come") ("The Economist") ("He's Our You"), Once off the Island, Locke had a mission to get all of the Oceanic Six back to the Island.

Locke overheard them and suggested that Ben be the principal since he seemed to actually care about students. But then Jack said that this behavior was all a ploy to get back at Ben for the way he had been treated. Ben found himself a victim of secrecy as well - despite being the Others' leader, Ben never got to visit the Island's Protector, Jacob. Though often a calm, eloquent antagonist, Ben's insecurity and jealousies sometimes brought out a petulant, reckless side. Ben agreed to this, but ordered that Juliet be marked instead. Ben accepted, and he tried to help the others at the camp.

Ben attempted to part with Sayid at this point, but Sayid insisted while Ben objected. As Ben walked to the boat, he was spotted by Desmond. Being one of the Oceanic Six, Sayid is in Iraq mourning the death of his wife Nadia and he confronts Ben, whom at first he thinks is a reporter. Once alone with Jack, Ben alluded to his own past role in the purge and warned Jack that contacting Naomi's boat would result in death for everyone on the Island. Jack asked about the symptoms of Ben's tumor, referring to X-rays he had seen earlier. Mikhail appeared with news of the arrival of Naomi, interrupting Locke and Ben's conversation. Ben and Sayid arrived at the dock to meet Kate and Jack. Juliet hesitantly proceeded to the Tempest, but when she arrived, Charlotte and Daniel insisted they were trying to prevent Ben from releasing the gas, which would kill everyone on the Island.

He was thankful to Locke for blowing up the submarine so that he would not have to let Jack and Juliet go. While Richard does this, Ben was astonished how Locke knew when to be here. And all those people that he ordered Sayid to kill would be alive. He also told Locke that he must kill his father in order to fulfill his potential.
