Nik at Nite: LOST 5.07: The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham

“...there’s a war coming, John. And if you’re not back on the island when that happens, the wrong side is going to win.”

The War: Widmore vs. Ben?

So who's the good guy and who's the bad guy? Are there clear sides? Are they both bad?
I loved the scene with Widmore sitting by John's hospital bed. Why did John Locke make such a huge impact on Widmore when he was 17? He was hostile to Locke, and John talked only to Alpert. Presumably the flash happened, Locke disappeared, and Widmore was as gobsmacked as the rest of them. If he was really on the island for 30 years as he says he was, then Alpert, who would have been tracking Locke’s life, might have been passing on information to him and he’d been following John’s life as closely as Alpert had been.
