EW Doc Jensen: 'Lost' recap: Smokey on the Daughter

Ben gets judged by the monster for letting Alex die, and the roots of the dead-mama's boy's feud with Charles Widmore are revealed

MOMMY ISSUES: Ben may be a bastard, but he’s a bastard with a soft spot for mothers

By Jeff Jensen
If there's a theory to be had that Lost is the sci-fi version of Survivor, we now know where tribal council takes place: In the subterranean court of The Island's pitiless judge, Smokey, an ancient chamber adorned with hieroglyphics and images of the jackal-headed Egyptian god Anubis, an underworld deity who serves as a shepherd to lost souls and the adjudicator of a truthful heart. In ''Dead Is Dead,'' certain to be hailed as one of the season’s best episodes (marred only by some really bad hair pieces), Benjamin Linus crawled into the crack underneath The Temple's outer wall and found himself standing before The Monster's bench. The charge against him: Being a really crappy father. Steaming out of tiny holes in a perforated stone slate and accompanied by its trademark clicking, Smokey gathered itself into a black thunderclap crackling with psychic energy, then swallowed Ben whole.
