"Who Ordered the Purge of the DHARMA Initiative?"

Posted by ashmh on 2010.05.07 at 14:31


With the end of the series only about four episodes away, I decided to dig up an old mystery that has yet to be solved. I wrote this ARTICLE about the DHARMA Initiative Purge, featured in Season 3's (3.20) "The Man Behind the Curtain".

I believe Ben was de facto leader, at that point, with Richard never really leading the Others - only acting as advisor and Jacob's occasional consigliere. I believe it was around this time that Ben was starting to take his orders from the man in the cabin, whom he assumed was Jacob. It's more likely, given recent events, that that man was MIB, and so it was MIB who ordered the Purge. It would make the most sense - too many people on the Island, and no way to influence or sway them all. He wants everybody dead - or at least the ones that might cause him trouble. WHat better way to make a clean sweep of a whole bunch of potential candidates?

I don't know about that. I think that Jacob was capable of ordering that purge. And I think that Widmore was capable of making the same order.

I don't know if Cuse and Lindehof will ever clear the matter.
