Emily gives birth to Ben.

Emily Linus was the wife of Roger and the mother of Ben. While in her seventh month of pregnancy with Ben, she and her husband were hiking through a forest outside of Portland when she went into premature labor. Roger delivered the child in the woods, but Emily suffered complications. Roger helped Emily and the baby to the side of a highway and flagged down Horace and Olivia Goodspeed for assistance. Before the Goodspeeds could drive the Linus family to the hospital, Emily died. Her dying words were a request that Roger name their son Benjamin. ("The Man Behind the Curtain")

As a child, Ben sees apparitions of Emily on the Island. His first vision of her is a startling appearance in his bedroom window at the Barracks. Later, at the perimeter between the barracks and the jungle, Ben sees Emily again and tries to run toward her. She calls to him to stop, as she does not want him to cross the sonar fence. ("The Man Behind the Curtain")

Photograph of Roger and Emily

During their time on the Island, Roger forgets Ben's birthday multiple times, saying that it is also the anniversary of when Ben killed his mother. Roger complains that he is unhappy that Emily is no longer around, and that he is stuck on the Island with Ben. Years later, just before Ben kills Roger in the DHARMA van, he tells his father that he's missed his mother too, but the difference for Ben is that he also had to put up with his father for all those years. ("The Man Behind the Curtain")
