Goodwin Stanhope was an Other who was sent by Ben to infiltrate the tail section survivors. He was killed by Ana Lucia after she found out his true identity. At the time of his death, he was unhappily married to Harper Stanhope and was having an affair with Juliet Burke.

Contents

Off the Island

Goodwin claimed to be in the Peace Corps, when he was talking with Ana Lucia, which may have been a partial truth, but little is known for sure about his life prior to the Island, if he was indeed brought there. It is currently unknown whether Goodwin was telling the truth about his time in the Peace Corps, or whether he was one of the Island's original Hostiles (like Richard Alpert).

On the Island

Before the crash

Goodwin after failed surgery on Sabine ("One of Us")

On Ben Linus's orders, Goodwin worked with chemicals at the Tempest station. Goodwin was married to Harper Stanhope, the surly, spiteful therapist of the Others. Their relationship had become unhappy by the time Goodwin met Juliet after the death of pregnant Other Henrietta. On their first meeting, Juliet treated a chemical burn wound on Goodwin's arm. ("The Other Woman") Goodwin was present in the operating room of the Staff while Juliet and Ethan operated on Sabine. When Goodwin saw how Juliet was affected by Sabine's death, he consoled her. ("One of Us")

Goodwin after sleeping with Juliet ("One of Us")

Goodwin began an affair with Juliet, to the chagrin of leader Ben Linus, who believed Juliet belonged to him. ("The Other Woman") Goodwin and Juliet were seen in bed together on Juliet's third anniversary of coming to the Island. ("One of Us")

After receiving a warning from Goodwin's wife Harper, who had learned about the affair, Juliet pressed Goodwin not to go public with his new relationship. Juliet feared for Goodwin's safety, believing, as Harper had warned her, that Ben would eliminate anyone who stood between himself and Juliet. ("The Other Woman")

After the crash

Goodwin is ordered by Ben to infiltrate the tail section. ("The Other Woman")

Seconds after Oceanic Flight 815 broke apart in the air above the Barracks, Ben ordered Goodwin to go to the crash site of the tail section, pose as a survivor, quietly observe and learn about them, and make a list within three days. Goodwin immediately ran off toward the crash site. ("A Tale of Two Cities") Harper's expression of quiet, helpless outrage on hearing the orders intimated that she understood the mission would also be a death sentence for her husband. ("The Other Woman")

Ana Lucia and Goodwin find Bernard trapped in the trees. ("The Other 48 Days")

Goodwin reached the crash site quickly, and he emerged from the jungle and alerted Ana Lucia Cortez to the fact that Bernard Nadler was stuck in a tree. Goodwin pretended to be one of the tailies and was forced to become quite heavily involved with the group due to the small size. Goodwin's list led raids on the tail-end survivors' beach camp by members of the Others to kidnap those survivors considered to be "good". ("The Other 48 Days")

Upon discovering a list of kidnap victims on the dead body of an Other killed in one of the raids, Ana Lucia began to suspect one of her group was a mole. She put Nathan, who had been acting suspiciously, in a tiger pit. When she threatened to cut Nathan's fingers off the next day as an interrogation method, Goodwin released and then killed Nathan. Goodwin hid Nathan's body to make it appear that he had escaped. ("The Other 48 Days")

Though all of the kidnap targets had been successfully acquired, Goodwin remained with the Tailies. According to the version of events related by Others leader Ben Linus to both Juliet Burke and Ana Lucia, Goodwin had remained to build a case for Ana Lucia as "good" person, "worthy" of being taken into the Others' society. ("Two for the Road")  ("The Other Woman")

When Bernard suggested travelling to high ground in order to test the radio, Goodwin volunteered to go alone, but Ana Lucia insisted on accompanying him. When they reached the top of a hill, the two stopped to rest and have a snack.

Ana Lucia kills Goodwin. ("The Other 48 Days")

Alone with Ana Lucia, Goodwin was asked to theorize about why the Others kidnapped only some of the group. He proposed that the Others had attempted to remove the strongest, fittest members of the group—the threats—including Eko, who survived the kidnapping by killing his would-be captors. Ana Lucia revealed that she had deduced that Goodwin was the mole, as Goodwin's clothes had been dry in the moments after the crash. Abandoning pretense, Goodwin admitted that he killed Nathan because he feared that after Ana Lucia's intended torture of Nathan proved unproductive, her suspicions would shift elsewhere. The murder was justified, Goodwin said, because Nathan "was not a good person"—which was "why he wasn't on the list"—and Goodwin claimed that the kidnapped children, Emma and Zach, were "fine" and "better off now". Enraged, Ana Lucia attacked Goodwin, and a struggle ensued. The two rolled down a hill, and Goodwin was impaled upon a stick. ("The Other 48 Days")

Post-death

His body would later be found by Pickett and Tom. They reported back to Ben, whose plan to send Goodwin to his death was finally complete. Ben brought Juliet to the hillside, where he admitted that he sent Goodwin on this mission because he knew there would be a good chance that Goodwin would die. When Juliet grievingly asked why, Ben exasperatedly asked how Juliet couldn't understand that she was "his", then left her to sob by the body of her dead lover. ("The Other Woman")

On day 47 after the crash of Oceanic 815, while searching for Michael, Jin and Eko found Goodwin's body. Eko coldly told Jin that his name was Goodwin, and when Jin asked "Others?", Eko nodded in confirmation. ("...And Found")

During his captivity in the Swan, Ben insisted to Ana Lucia that Goodwin had no intention of harming her. In fact, Goodwin suggested that the Others accept Ana Lucia into their society. ("Two for the Road")

Trivia

  • Goodwin's last name, Stanhope, has not been referred to on-screen. In an Enhanced episode, captioning indicated his surname was the same as Harper Stanhope, his spouse. ("The Other Woman-Enhanced")
  • Goodwin is the only recurring Other to never have dialogue in present-timeline events in the Lost saga.
  • The name Goodwin finds its origins in Anglo-Saxon Britain, where, in Old English, "Godwine" means "good friend". [1] Goodwin may also be a play on the words "Good One".
  • In 1969, a woman named Mrs. Goodwin called famous disc jockey Wolfman Jack's radio program. [2] As he had her on the line, Wolfman Jack jokingly accused Mrs. Goodwin of making strange noises. She blamed the television, saying it was the program "The New People", a short-lived ABC series about a group of young people who crash-land on a mysterious, uninhabited Pacific island. [3]
  • Richard Goodwin was a speechwriter for U.S. Presidents Kennedy & Johnson. Goodwin is attributed with coining the phrase "The Great Society", which was widely introduced in a speech by Johnson at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1964.

Rex Goodwin, commonly rendered Rex Godwin among fans, is a major character in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. Goodwin is a former developer from R.R.D., head of Sector Security and the man from the Daedalus Bridge legend.

His brother, Roman, entrusted Rex with the mission to use the Signers to someday stop him, as Roman became a Dark Signer. Rex uses his influences to gather the Signers and assist them, but secretly used them in order to become a Dark Signer and absorb the powers of a Signer.

The word "Rex" is Latin for "King". This demonstrates his influence and power in both New Domino City and Satellite.

Biography

R.R.D.

Rex and his brother Roman, served as assistants to the developer, Dr. Fudo of the Enerdy technology.

Roman and Rex, while working for R.R.D.

Roman is made lead developer after Dr. Fudo attempts to abort the project as its too dangerous. Dr. Fudo managed to pass on three of the four control units; the cards "Red Dragon Archfiend", "Stardust Dragon" and "Black Rose Dragon", to Rex after being shot at for taking them. He begs Rex to stop the Enerdy project.

Rex goes to find Roman and finds him in a lab, having just amputated his arm. Roman hands Rex a container with the arm and tells Rex to do what it takes to defeat him after the Signers appear. He orders Rex to leave and hits a self destruct button, resulting in the Zero Reverse, so that he may be reborn as a Dark Signer.

In order to make sure that the Dragon cards fell into the possession of their corresponding Signers, Goodwin released them to the public.

Daedalus Bridge

Rex as the legendary man.

Rex constructed a Duel Runner and moved to a coastal part of Satellite. Nobody knew or found out who he was at the time. Every day he used to stare across the waters dividing Satellite and New Domino. One day he began constructing a bridge to the city.

Initially people thought he was crazy, but came to help him after a while, seeing his progress and determination. Some people frowned at the idea and forced construction to halt. Rex became wanted by Sector Security and his helpers abandoned the project.

Rex ended up cornered by Security one day. Rather than be caught and spend the rest of his life in jail, he rode his Duel Runner along the bridge and flew off to the other end of the sea. This act caused Goodwin to lose his left arm.

Most people never knew what became of him and yet regarded him as a legend. The incomplete bridge was later named Daedalus Bridge.

Goodwin managed to survive the ordeal and later replaced his arm with a mechanical one.

Director of Security

Goodwin managed to make his way to becoming director of New Domino City and Sector Security, as well as leader of the secret organization known as Yliaster, with Lazar as his all purpose assistant.

Knowing the Dark Signers will return to wage war against the Signers, Goodwin isolates the Satellite from New Domino. Since the original Enerdy Reactor, located in Satellite, is the gateway to the underworld, Satellite is to become the battlefield. Goodwin cleanses New Domino, by sending any criminals or socially inadequate people to Satellite, making New Domino a utopia, while Satellite is flooded with people considered "scum" by many. Goodwin masquerades his beliefs of class and plutocracy with utilitarianism, saying that everyone must work together to maintain the delicate balance between Satellite and New Domino City.

Goodwin continues Enerdy research in New Domino and uses it to power the city. Zigzix leads the project, but must operate under Goodwin's instructions.

Using his influences within the city, Goodwin began to locate the Signers.

He finds the Satellite resident, Jack Atlas, who has a Mark of the Dragon, identifying him as a Signer. Goodwin organizes an escape plan for Jack, promising him that he will live as a Duel King in New Domino. Jack complies, although it meant turning his back on and stealing from his friends. Jack apparently becomes Goodwin's protegé, but is really used for publicity and a tool in Goodwin's plans.

Fortune Cup

After witnessing the appearance of the Crimson Dragon during Yusei's and Jack's Turbo Duel, he reveals his status to Jack as the 360th Star Guardian and informs Jack that he is a prophetical savior called a "Signer". However, Goodwin conceals the whole truth from Jack. Goodwin believes the truth would spark Jack's fire.

Goodwin later arranges the Fortune Cup, in hopes of finding Signers by inviting participants randomly and inserting his own dueling assassins who will expose a Signer upon dueling one. Goodwin is shown to have control, either directly or through Zigzix and Lazar, of nearly every aspect of the tournament. He also has a large string of backup plans should things not go his way: for example, upon discovering that Leo had substituted for his Signer sister in the tournament, he arranges a "consolation Duel" to expose Luna.

Rex catches the spike, revealing his mechanical arm.

Greiger, whose hometown had been destroyed, was been promised reconstruction aid to his hometown depending on how he preformed in the Fortune Cup. Greiger gets misinformed that Goodwin was responsible for the village's destruction and after he loses to Yusei, he attacks Goodwin, resulting in a spike from his Duel Runner flying off and Goodwin catching it, revealing he has a mechanical left arm to Lazar and Jack.

During the Fortune Cup final, while the other four Signers are in the premises, he uses Roman's old arm with the 5th Mark of the Dragon to Summon the Crimson Dragon. (In the English anime, he refers to himself as the fifth Signer). He is unconcerned when Jack loses to Yusei in the final round. Due to the appearance of the Crimson Dragon during the Duel, the public and media couldn't see how the Duel ended. When the media questions him about it, stating that the public isn't satisfied by the outcome of the Duel, he is able to avoid telling the truth.

Dark Signers return

Goodwin appears at the premiere of the film Atlas Rising. After assisting at opening event and talking to the people, he tries to leave but is stopped by Angela Rains, who publicly questions him about Jack being from Satellite.

Goodwin and Lazar meet Yusei on a bridge to tell the boy "the truth". Goodwin tells Yusei about the 5000 year old battle between the Signers and Dark Signers, how the Earthbound Immortals got sealed in the Nazca Lines and how the Crimson Dragon divided itself into 5 parts, each sealed in a Mark of the Dragon. When Yusei asks him why the battle has began again Rex tells him about the Zero Reverse and how it unleashed negative energy, which was also emitted from the Nazca Lines and now the Dark Signers plan to use the same Enerdy reactor from the Zero Reverse incident to open the door to the Underworld. In order to stop this, the Signers must defeat the Dark Signers.

Yusei insists on evacuating Satellite before this happens. Goodwin refuses as the people in New Domino will become victims instead. Yusei angrily figures out that this is why Goodwin isolated Satellite. Goodwin tells Yusei he must combine his powers with the other Signers in order to stop the Dark Signers. After Yusei asks who the fifth Signer is, Goodwin says that he is destined to appear eventually. Goodwin arranges for Yusei to be airdropped into Satellite.

Goodwin watches the Duel between Yusei and Kalin.

After Carly Carmine becomes a Dark Signer, Lazar and Goodwin become aware of her presence and watch her duel Sayer on a screen, in which they see the Hummingbird geoglyph appear in the city. They also see Misty Tredwell Duel around the same time and place and observe her Lizard geoglyph appear.

Rex later invites the Signers to his house to give them more information concerning the Signers and Dark Signers. He tells the Signers how they have been brought together by fate, more about the Dark Signer's powers and their use of the Earthbound Immortals. Reluctantly he tells them that a Dark Signer cannot return to their normal self as they are no longer of this world.

After the black fog incident in Satellite, Goodwin arranges for the Signers to return to Satellite to fulfill their mission. Before the Signers leave Yusei asks Goodwin to promise to finish Daedalus Bridge, once the Dark Signers threat has been eliminated, which Goodwin accepts.

As a Dark Signer

Goodwin as a Dark Signer.

Rex meets-up with Roman and engages in a Duel, using his Duel Disk, which folds out of his mechanical arm. Rex loses on purpose, so that he may be reborn as a Dark Signer. He tells Roman that he knows Roman cannot defeat Yusei and if the Dark Signers lose the battle, then another battle would occur in the next thousand years. In his dying words, he tells his brother that he intends to stop the chain of fate by destroying the world using the King of the Underworld's power and rebuilding it using the Crimson Dragon's power.

After a while Crow Hogan finds him in an old room. Rex informs Crow a little about the past before cutting him off by turning towards a sliding door. Later Rex returns back to New Domino City and back to the Sky Temple to collect Roman's arm.

Later after Akiza fails to seal the final tower before sundown, the Condor geoglyph appears on the sky. Then the Crimson Dragon appears once again and guides the Signers to Rex Goodwin. As he reveals to them that he has acquired the powers of both Signer and Dark Signer, as Goodwin intends to use the power of the Crimson Dragon along with those of the Wicked God in order to become the Ultimate God. As the Condor mark on his back shows itself, he then removed Roman's preserved arm from the canister and attached it to himself and then declares that a Shadow Turbo Duel will be held within Condor geoglyph as a ritual to welcome the King of the Underworld.

Yusei, Jack, and Crow accept the Duel in order to stop the resurrection of the Underworld Ruler. During the Duel he reveals to them about how and why he became a Dark Signer. Shortly after the Duel begins, Goodwin summons forth all the birthmarks together to form the Mark of the Dragon on his chest. He also reveals that he was the stranger from the Daedalus Bridge legend.

Roman and Rex before passing on to the afterlife.

Ultimately, Rex loses to Yusei with his Earthbound Immortal destroyed by "Majestic Star Dragon" and the King of the underworld destroyed by the Crimson Dragon. With their defeat the Dark Signers were revived as their old selves, but Rex and Roman remained absent. They agree that since they became Dark Signers by choice, they should get no second chance.

Sometime after the final battle, the Daedalus Bridge is completed as a far more modern bridge.

Manga biography

Goodwin in the manga.

The manga is set in an alternate universe than the anime and as such contains different events. Goodwin is still the Director of New Domino City, working with Mina Simington. Rex later sends Jack Atlas to Satellite to begin his plans for the D1 Grand Prix.

Non-canon appearances

Stardust Accelerator

In Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Stardust Accelerator, Goodwin grafts a Mark of the Dragon onto a clone of a Signer (the player). The player is left with amnesia and has no recollection of this.

Goodwin witnesses the player beating Armstrong. He subsequently fires Armstrong for his abuse of authority and releases the player from the Facility.

Before the player faces Jack Atlas in the Fortune Cup, they black out and are confornted by Goodwin upon waking up. Goodwin informs the player of his status as a clone and attempts to utilize the power of the Crimson Dragon. He pits the player in Duels against 4 other clones; Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta. Once the player wins, the Crimson Dragon appears, but dissipates. Goodwin realizes that he cannot simply do with replicas, despite the fact that intense duels will lead to the awakening of the Crimson Dragon.

After the Fortune Cup, Goodwin aborts his plan to awaken the Dragon, and allows the player to do as they wish.

Yusei, Jack, and Crow Lose Turbo

Rex uses an Inca Deck during his 3-on-1 Turbo Duel against Yusei, Jack and Crow, which focuses on controlling the field using the effects of the Synchro Monster "Sun Dragon Inti" and its Dark Synchro counterpart "Moon Dragon Quilla". As the final Dark Signer he possesses the final Earthbound Immortal, "Wiraqocha Rasca".

He uses two Decks; one for Ground Duels and one for Turbo Duels. During the 3-on-1 Turbo Duel, he uses an altar on the Stairway to the Dragon Star as his Duel Disk, rather than a Duel Runner. It is located in the center of the Condor geoglyph, which serves as the Turbo Duel circuit.
