When we left off, Hugo had just stumbled upon the mysterious cabin, uttering an uh-oh. This was punctuated by a classic uh-oh face.
Now it’s Danielle and Jack with the torches, dragging tied-up Ben as they follow Naomi’s blood trail. “Blood trail ends here,” says Danielle. Jack asks her what she means. She means the blood trail ends here, Jack. Naomi must have doubled back. Ben takes the opportunity to chime in, “Better call the boat. Tell them she’s getting a REALLY big bundle of firewood.” Zing! Ben got jokes for Season 4, believe that.
Ha. And trust us, Ben’s just warming up.
Then Jack realizes the phone is gone. Ben says Kate took it when they hugged, and adds insult to injury by adding that Kate found the right trail. “But look on the bright side,” Ben deadpans, “At least SOMEBODY around here knows what the hell they’re doing.” Zing zing! I love it when Ben starts talking that ying-yang, don’t you? Talk that ying-yang, Ben. (Incidentally, did you know that Ben’s real-life wife played young Ben’s mother in his flashback? I thought that was gross/great. Michael Emerson talked about it on the CW11 Morning News last spring.)
