The question now is whether or not Bentham is an alias being used by a character we already know (Ben? Jacob himself? Locke?) or an entirely new character.

Loved the finale.
*spoilers*
Locke is revealed to be in the coffin. I'm guessing there are other survivors that got off the island in the 3 year time period using aliases.

Can't believe nobody kept this thread earlier. Lost is such a popular show.
