First, Penny's dad owns the freighter and is trying to get to the island. Second, Ben has someone on the boat and has told Locke. They didn't say who, but I am assuming we will find out next week. I think Michael or Walt. (It may be Sayed, but that wouldn't make sense chronologically). It is someone that we thought was dead and haven't seen in a while. This is based on the preview for next week. Third, Ben is in love with Juliette who was being punished in early episodes for having an affair with a married man. "Make me a Supermodel" was its usual boring self. There was some kind of drama involving Britney Spear's paparrazzi boyfriend and one of the wannabee model's girlfriend. Don't know, don't care. Does anyone think any of these people on this show are worth looking at naked? The answer is no. Tyra Banks wouldn't even put these girls are her dumb show.
