All true,Charles,the characters do display a bit of 'selective ignorance' so the writers can unfold the plot when and how they want to. Along that line,do you or anyone know whether the captions of the last week's Lost episodes are canon? I watch most of those just to see what I might've missed or at least stay on point. Have to say that I liked Ben/Emerson 's performance last week better the second time I watched it. What seemed like truncated and unsupported adjustments were anything but!
