Storyline

In the aftermath of Alija Flight 316 crashing on the island, John Locke inexplicably appears, back from the dead, and tries to bring the survivors together, two of whom include the shady Ilana (who was with Sayid on the flight) as well as a fellow man, named Caesar, who try to make sense of what is going on. Locke flashes back to the time months earlier when he moved the island and was transported to the deserts of North Africa, and was found by Charles Widmore who asked Locke to convince the Oceanic 6 to return to the island.

The Manipulations of Ben Are Enough
19 April 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Africa, John Locke appears in the desert with compound fracture in one of his legs; however, he is rescued by Charles Widmore. The millionaire offers the support of Matthew Abaddon to help Locke to find the Oceanic Six and convince them to return to the island. Locke is unsuccessful in his intent and when Matthew and Locke are attacked in the cemetery, Locke flees but has a car accident. He goes to the hospital where Jack is working and he decides to commit suicide. However Ben arrives in his room…

"The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham" is an episode that shows the fate of John Locke after the Orchid, when he leaves the island. The conclusion is quite irritating and I believe that most of the viewers are sick and tired with the manipulations of Ben with the "naïve" survivors. My vote is five.
