While Ben Linus is known and remembered for many things on Lost, one fact about him is often overlooked:
In the love triangle that sprung up around Jack, Sawyer and Juliet, it's easy to forget that Ben once crushed hard on this fellow Other.
So, in the wake of her apparent death, how will the ultimate manipulator react?
"Ben's no longer in a position to entertain romantic notions," Emerson told E! News when asked that question. "I don't think there's room for romance in Ben's world right now. As much as he admires her on a lot of levels, I don't think he can do anything about it."
That's all the actor could offer. After all, he recently admitted that the cast doesn't have knowledge of any actual Lost spoilers.
