How bad ass has Jack become? Answer: Locke Bad Ass. And that’s as badass as you can get.
But the best line of last night’s episode? That belongs firmly to the performance of Dr. Linus himself, Michael Emerson.
“Because he’s the only one who will have me.”
Seriously, during this monologue I was almost weeping for Benjamin Linus, and this is a man who let his own daughter get slaughtered. Michael Emerson not only deserves the Emmy that he won for this character, he deserves every acting award under the sun. Whether it be for theatre or film, every acting category should have one exception and that exception should be “Michael Emerson as Benjamin Linus will always qualify for every acting award ever.” Just look into his eyes! Nuff said.
