Bram Works For?



  • This was pretty much confirmed in "The Incident." He refers to his group as "The Good Guys", just as Ben referred to The Others in "Live Together, Die Alone." Ilana's flashback indicates she follows Jacob's orders, and since Bram is with Ilana and seems to be her right hand man, he works for Jacob as well. Their group might be an off island faction of The Others.

The Others

  • Ben would want to kill Caesar so that his people could take control after he left for the main island. Also, Ben would be the 'opposing' side off-island back when Widmore was doing his recruiting - this is how he got Michael onto the boat.
  • Eloise Hawking: Who else would know about Ajira 316 and Charles Widmore?
  • In all references to the Temple, it is shown to have a strong connection with the Others. "Our Temple" is said quite a few times in the recent past. If this is true, then they would have to be more of a duo, branching from an original group of three (Ilana, Bram, Richard) disciples, so to speak, of Jacob.
    • More than one group could think the Temple belongs to them. Bram's group as well as the Other's believe that the temple is theirs. It could be a similar situation to the Jews, and Muslims all considering Jerusalem their Holy city.
  • Bram and Ilana are the same immortal race as Richard Alpert or work for someone that is the same as Richard. The war between Charles and Ben is nothing but a small civil war within Richard's faction. The Bram/Ilana faction were expelled from the island long long ago and have finally returned to take claim of the island.
  • They do work for Ben, but have never met him. Ben's a very elusive person. This would be why no one recognized him. Also, this would make sense of why Ilana "arrested" Sayid and got him on the plane. Ben knew he would be the most difficult to convince.
    • In Ilana's flashback we see Jacob asking for her help. Later in one of Hurley's flashbacks we see Jacob expressing his wish that Hurley would also go back to the island. Both of these flashbacks reinforce the idea that they most likely are not working for Ben and are in fact working for Jacob. So Ilana most likely arrested Sayid because Jacob wanted him to come back to the island.

Bram's Knowledge of the Island

  • It does seem like he and Ilana know something others don't. The way they ask "What lies in the shadow of the statue" makes it seem like they're not sure what the answer will be. But once they hear that answer they immediately know something about the person. It's my opinion that they're more confident about their purpose than Ben or Widmore, who were vague and manipulative. They offer only knowledge and fulfillment, but you're either with them or not.

On the canoe

Bram, Ilana, and their other followers are the ones who will end up shooting at Locke, Sawyer, Juliet when they were traveling in the outrigger canoe during the time flashes. He will not be the one that Juliet ends up shooting though. That will be a red shirt.
