Ben realizes that he has a tumor on his bottom spine. Ben also knows that Jack is an accomplished spinal surgeon, who could remove his tumor. Ben plan’s is to take Michael hostage as Michael is attempting to rescue his son, Walt. Ben plans on compromising Michael, by agreeing to let him and his son leave the island on one condition. Michael must lead Jack, Sawyer, Kate, and Hurley into an ambush, where they will be transported to Hydra, whose facilities are conducive to Ben’s plan (except for Hurley, who is released and returns to the beach camp). Once at the Hydra, Ben will take advantage of Jack’s emotional investment in Kate and Sawyer to coerce him to perform the surgery.


Six days after Michael is taken hostage-

Ben enters the Swan under the guise of a stranded balloonist named Henry Gale. It is uncertain whether Ben conspired with or without the knowledge of Rousseau to accomplish this. It is unlikely that Ben would be traveling toward the Beach camp without a walkie, gun, or with the protection of his forces unless he was intending to be captured. Ben was familiar with the Swan from video feed from the Pearl. It is uncertain whether the video feed had audio, although it is likely.

Ten days after Michael is taken hostage-

Michael is given three minutes alone with Walt, but the visit is cut short when Walt tries to warn Michael that the Other’s camp is fake and they are pretending to be unsophisticated. Michael is told he and Walt will be given their freedom via a boat if Michael not only releases Ben from the Swan, but also leads Jack, Kate, Sawyer, and Hurley into an ambush.

Eleven days after Michael is take hostage-

Michael is released and Jack and Kate find him as they are trying to arrange a prisoner exchange between Ben and Michael. As they now have Michael, no exchange takes place.
