I thought it was against the "rules" for Ben to kill Widmore ?

Widmore wasn't supposed to return to the island, either. I think at this point all bets are off, no?

Hmm, let's look at the entirety of your post:

"Pretty good. Momentum seems to be building, my hopes are ever increasing. Still really enjoying the Jack/Locke stuff in the sideways dealie. Pretty lukewarm on the rest, but next week should bring the fuckin' lulz with the Drive Shaft + Faraday "avant garde" musical disco ball of love. Can't imagine Laz being too pleased with the 180-180-180-180 arc that Ben has now completed, this most recent about-face coming approximately...what, 20 hours after the last one? lol Something like that, anyway. At least we can agree on that being S5 finale-level silly."

Aside from "pretty good", and "hopes ever increasing" which are essentially backhanded compliments, and your positive reception to the "Jack/Locke stuff in the sideways dealie" everything in this post is NEGATIVE. "Lukewarm", "next week should bring the lulz", "can't imagine Laz was pleased", "S5 finale-level silly".

So forgive me if it seems like you don't like the show, despite your protests to the contrary. And I don't remember Ben promising anything. Regardless, he's a liar in this reality. Not sure why you'd take anything he says as word.

Honestly, I feel like it's basically 1:1, at this point.
My only problem with that guess is that it's WAY too obvious, and the producers know this. Also, they just used it as the opening for last night's episode. To do it again in the final shot wouldn't be very imaginative, or unique. Of course, Carlton/Cuse have said they've known the final shot for a long time, which points back to its power as some kind of recurring metaphor, so who knows. You gotta go at least 2:1, though.

I'd love an alternate ending where Sayid shows up and snaps Kimmel's unfunny, toad no-neck with his legs.

Or have I already made that wish before?

, but not re: Kimmel.

I will take the 2:1 odds, though. That sounds right. Good call on the opening shot, last night. I'd already forgotten that. But they're not exactly above the obvious. I mean...remember the white-out, last year? I didn't at all mind it, but it was the most obvious way to wrap up the season, given the bomb.

I don't know how Miles figures he lived in the barracks thirty years before Ben.

Things are different in the sideways world (they didn't have a son in flashback world), so I would think that Jack's wife is different based on the fact that they've kept her ID a mystery, and played it up for the finale. Since Juliet is the only main female character we've yet to see in Sideways LA (now that Ana Lucia popped up), I'm guessing its her. Who knows, could be Betty White, now that would be a twist.

He lived there in the 70's in season 5

So did Ben, as a child, so Miles never lived there before Ben, let alone thirty years before. We clearly saw them living in the barracks at the same time in the 70's. In fact, Ben was there before Miles, since Roger Workman was already there when the Losties arrived in the past.

It would have been the 1940's thirty years before Ben lived there.

I know the writers meant it as a joke, but it was a sloppy one.

I know many of you are hanging on every word I write.

so I need to correct, we will not see Richard, (Ricardus - Latin) in the sideways world. He is gone forever to be with his wife.

Look for most everyone else to die on the island and find a full life in the sideways. sideways is where its at!

Those were awesome ^ Just watched it yesterday.

So TV Guide is saying the DVD's will have 20 extra minutes of the show that they didn't have time to include in the broadcast, which will answer more questions.
