"This Place is Death"

First post, and it's about LOST. This is my favorite show, and this will probably not be the last time I bring it up.

"This Place is Death"
Rating out of 5: 4.3

So... we see a little of Rousseau's back story, we found out how Monton lost his arm (remember... Season 1, finale episode: When entering the "Dark Territory," Rousseau says "This is where Monton lost his arm.") - the "monster," who we know a little more about, dragged him into a pit - and we saw the return of the Temple. If you recall, in Season 3, Ben tells Richard to bring their people to the Temple. And in this episode, we found out that Smokey is a security system for this Temple, which is covered in Egyptian hieroglyphics.

We also learned that Faraday tells Charlotte, in the past, that if she comes back to the island, she will die. Very interesting. And yet another two characters linked with the Dharma initiative.

And, of course, Locke going down the well... Christian explaining that Ben never should have turned the wheel. Does this mean that Ben may be allowed back after all?

I thought the off-island story was not as interesting as the on-island pot this episode, although I think the opposite will be true in next week's episode, entitled "316." Could this refer to a flight number (on Ajira Airways, perhaps)? Area code? Building number? I suppose we'll find out.

Numbers in 316:
3+16=19, 9-1=8
16*3=48 (4 and 8) (Also, number of people who survived from the fuselage of 815).

Please comment with theories, questions, anything.
