LOST. Tonight. 9pm. ABC. Episode 5: “Lighthouse.” It’s a Jack episode. Be there. Catch up on what you’ve missed.
In the meantime, we’ve stockpiled our five favorite animated GIFs of everyone’s favorite LOST sociopathic charmer, Ben Linus. We’re somewhat obsessed, both with animated GIFs and with Ben Linus, so non-Losties may want to skip this post. Alternatively: if you want to see a large man throw a Hot Pocket at another man, read on.
1. Hugo throws a Hot Pocket at Ben Linus
A surprised Hugo “Hurley” Reyes attempts to fend off the ever-creepy Linus with a Hot Pocket. He does not succeed.
2. Ben Linus fetches a ham. (via)
Ben Linus fetches a delicious ham from the oven. This does not make him any less sinister.
3. Ben Linus is terrified by Jacob (via Cultural Learnings)
In this late Season 3 episode, back when we quaintly had no idea how weird the Jacob plot was going to get, Ben Linus was scared of Jacob. Very scared.
4. Ben Linus in front of a red curtain (via Tinypic)
We’re just as confused as you are.
5. Ben Linus shoots Desmond Hume at close range, with a gun
Luckily (spoiler alert) groceries have the power to stop bullets, but Widmore-induced vendettas or none, that’s just cold.
Bonus: If you haven’t seen this fan-made trailer for Bendiana Jones, which takes Ben’s Season 4 desert adventures and transforms them into an epic swashbuckling saga, you really should.
