"Whatever Happened, Happened"

A largely transitional hour of Lost, but one of the best Kate-centric episodes.

Perhaps the most interesting thing in "Happened" was Richard Alpert's insistence, as he bears a wounded, dying Little Ben off to The Temple for healing, that he is not responsible to Charles [Widmore] or Ellie [Hawkings]. Does the mean that the Hostiles at this time are under the leadership of Alpert/Widmore/Hawkings. Only Richard is still on The Island. Widmore claims that Ben tricked him off. How/why did the future Mrs. H leave?

And to what degree is Alpert the Kingmaker on The Island, or as Darlton suggest on the DVD commentary to "The Man Behind the Curtain," the Panchen Lama, the individual who identifies the next Dalai Lama?
