Lost: A Tale of Two Cities


*flails* Sawyer! On my TV again!!! And all is right with the world. He's sharing his fish biscuit that he's so proud of. And cracking jokes. AWWWW.

Jack looks good angry. And OMG, Jack was in jail!! Someone, quick, write a fic where Sawyer was in the same cell!

I think I would have enjoyed this episode more if I hadn't seen any clips from it ahead of time. It was kind of anticlimactic. So the big thing in the beginning was that The Others live in a quaint village and have a book club? Can Sawyer join?

That Kate/Henry scene was right out of some creepy fanfic! Great, now we're in for a lot of Kate/Tom and Kate/Henry (or Ben?)

WTF with Jack not being over that wench, Sarah. YOU'RE SO, SO MUCH BETTER THAN HER. SHE NEVER LOVED YOU. Gah. I don't like obsessive!stalker Jack. I guess I could see him doing that but why go there with his character? Because he has trouble letting go? Yeah, we already knew that. Should have saved Shannon's dad, dude. Everyone would have been better off. No lame wife, Shannon and Boone would still be alive. For the first time, I wanted to fast-forward through the Jack backstory. Is Christian capable of screwing Jack's no-good wife? Sure. I guess Lost needs its incest angle somewhere.

I'm already tired of the new chick. Please, please don't be confiding in her, Jack. And you think they'd have a better system for getting him his food. Did everyone else think that was Penny at first, playing the Petula Clark CD? They look really, really similar. Juliette? I thought they said her name was going to be Amelia. But I guess all the Others have fake names. And I'm really tired of Henry too and that sing-songy voice and that zombie stare.

Can we please see Jack in Thailand next? I really, really hope that's the last we ever see of Sarah.

And I have to say, seeing Evi behave like such an idiot on talk shows isn't helping endear me to Kate. I did love the awkwardness of Sawyer wondering how and why they made her wear that dress. But I'm sure I'll be in full flailing Skate mode for next week or whenever that kiss happens.

Chachi. *Ha* But don't trust that kid, Sawyer.

So ... hmm. A good start. MORE SAWYER, kthx.



ETA: The Nine did nothing at all for me except that I want Tim Daly and Kim Raver to make sweet, sweet love now! ;) I just wasn't a fan of the nonlinear format. I have a feeling it'll be flashing back to the robbery over and over. Just what I need -- more flashbacks. I hope Kim can still be available for 24. The show so far reminded me of the movie "Inside Man," which I liked a lot better.

She was a complete jerk on Leno and I had to turn her Ellen interview off when she started talking about putting lotion up her nose. I really wonder what her problem is. Was she dropped on her head as a child?

I'm all right. Kind of an anticlimactic day. Nothing really went the way I'd hoped.

You?

I really, really hope that's the last we ever see of Sarah.

Amen. I hate her bony, white ass. Stupid cow. Stopping with the name-calling now, as my Sarah-hatred is approaching the level of my Ana-hatred, and I fear that quite soon my Juliet-hatred will be right up there too. This is not good.

Sawyer & Jack in jail together! LOLZ! Brilliant plan. G'head.

Jack is one jealous dude. I guess it's his fix-it compulsion. Not being able to admit he can't fix his marriage.

I'm telling you, they are not going to give us Thailand for a long time. You're gonna have to be patient.

Let's face it, Jack needs a Cassidy. He hasn't had a decent woman thrown at him yet. Kate really is the best of the lot and that's kind of sad.

And ha, you hate Sarah as much as Ana? I liked her during the "miracle" scene because it seemed like she and Jack really had a connection there. Otherwise, not so much. She's so plain and mousy and she clearly never loved him. :-(

I've liked Elizabeth Mitchell tremendously in other stuff, just about everything else I've ever seen her in, actually. But the whole "calm, slow speaking" thing that all The Others do is ... tiresome. It just makes for really dull TV if there's no tension. So I hope that find a way to ramp up her character because I know that actress can bring it, if there's something to be brung.

Yeah Jack in Thailand is going to be the equivalent of "How Locke Was Paralyzed." Speaking of Locke ... no more Helen either, thank you. Those Lost writers love to beat a dead horse, don't they? Can you imagine trying to break up with any of them? LOL. Srsly. The only backstory relationship I cared about was Cassidy. And Penelope. And I do like Christian but I think it's time to explore something else in Jack's past.

I've never seen Elizabeth Mitchell before. She seemed fine as an actress and she's certainly pretty. However, as a proponent of torture and mind control, I just can't warm up to her character.

'Course, that's hypocritical, b/c I warmed up to Sayid. Maybe in time I'll grow to love her torturin' ways.

Cassidy was one smart cookie, no doubt. You're right, someone like that would be perfect for Jack.

She was in Gia (making out with Angelina Jolie) and on ER (making out with umm, the bitchy female doctor with the cane whose name I can't remember anymore) and in Frequency as Jim Caviezel's mom. And she was excellent in all of them, very sympathetic and warm.

I certainly wasn't picturing The Others being nice (as you well know, heh), but I thought there'd be more ... drama?

Perhaps Jack and Sawyer will have to share Cassidy. ;)

Hey, I'd like to see Alex again. She was ineresting.

I thought it was Penny at first, too.

I suppose Jack needs that obsessive stalker thing to happen to propel him to Thailand.

Oh good, I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking that was Penny. Should have put that in the polls, LOL.

And I think Jack could have gone to Thailand without having become a stalker first, but oh well.

So does this mean I'll have to have someone else read my fucked-up Jack/Juliet porn?

Eh. We'll see. She might grow on me. I've always liked that actress before, but the character so far doesn't interest me at all.

I think the big problem with the premiere was i'd already seen most of the highlights and I didn't care for the backstory. I think I did all my flailing over the promo that showed Jack yanking the chain, etc.

But hey, let's hoping next week has some stuff we haven't already seen! (Whose episode is it next week...?)

It's a Sun episode next week, as far as I know.

Any word on when we can expect a Sawyer episode? I just checked and it's a Locke episode after Sun.

According to lost-media, I think the next Sawyer ep is 3.04 or 3.05. Let's hope this one actually airs. :P

I see there's an ep called "Every Man for Himself." (#4) That has GOT to be the Sawyer ep. And yeah, they better show it! So it's Jack, Sun, Locke, Sawyer and then who knows, probably ending on Kate before the hiatus?

Yep, that's it! I couldn't get lost-media to load, so I couldn't look it up. :)

Jack so looks good angry, and crying, and broken, and in scrubs, and in that jail cell, and pulling on that chain..*smile*

Jack, oh Jack, we already knew he could be explosive, but that stalkerish Jack, especially with the phone, I can understand that "I need to know" sort of thing, but at the same time..he was totally irrational.

You're right, one, the fact that Jack needs to let go..and I think like Boone's death, him not asking what the guy's name was was a part of him learning to do that, but still HE NEEDS A FREAKIN' NORMAL CHICK, that is why I really wish Sun was single..either him or Sawyer. And he so should have helped Boone's father, no Sarah no crazy crazy Jack, he just couldn't accept the fact that she would leave him, the "perfect" husband..it's a shame though, I really don't think either one of them truly loved each other.

I don't trust Juliet at all, I don't mind her, actually I like her much more than Ana and pretty much Kate, but I think people are forgetting SHE'S AN OTHER, THE SAME OTHER'S THAT SHOT SAWYER AND LEFT HIM, MICHAEL AND JIN TO DIE IN THE OCEAN. She can't be all good.

And he is so prime for Stockholm Syndrome..tired, hungry, angry, emotional..it's got to be coming down that pipe.

LOL, everyone wants to put Jack with Sun. Not a pairing I'm all that interested in, alas. Jack needs someone like Cassidy! Now she was cool!

Of course I don't trust Juliet. She might be "nice" but she's still an Other. I don't get people "loving" her so far. I don't hate her but she's just not very interesting.

If Jack does fall for her, you're right, it will be Stockholm Syndrome! S

YES!YES!AND YES!I still don't understand why he was in jail,though.
And I despise Sarah so very much,what a bitch.

Yes! Jack was in jail because he got violent at the AA meeting.

Sarah is SUCH a bitch. Bleah. I don't understand what he saw in her. He should have looked up Gabriela! She was hot!

But he was only shouting and fighting with his dad...well,I guess that was violent;)

He should have looked up Gabriela!She was hot!

I'm going down my flist backward and I'm just now getting to yesterday's posts. Sorry for the lateness!

I knew that this wouldn't be the Thailand ep, but it was still disappointing that they didn't go there. There'll be another Jack!back ep this season, though, count on it, and I'd lay odds that it'll happen then (probably during May sweeps).

I've been patting my TV Guide Josh's cheek all day because of Sawyer's goofy pride over his fish biscuit. Is this normal?
halfdutch

NO MORE SARAH!!! At least that's what I hope this ep means. Would have better if she'd been flattened by a Mack truck, of course.

I adore Josh to pieces but ... shouldn't Sawyer have been more mad?

And yes, I think they're saving Thailand until sweeps. It's like What Kate Did or What Paralyzed Locke. They turn everything into a mystery on this show.

I think the answer to that is yes and no. Sawyer's trigger is when someone takes what he considers to be his. When they're only hurting *him* (for instance, when Jack and Sayid tortured him), he doesn't hold much of a grudge. It's like he expects to be mistreated, so when it happens it just seems natural and he isn't particularly surprised or outraged. Now, when the Others start messing with something he's possesive of (Kate), I think that's when we'll see real rage.

Well, he was mad at the Tailies! And rightly so. It just doesn't feel right that so far the Tailies have been worse to him than The Others. Apart from the shooting.

Hmmm. I agree, like Jack, his trigger is mostly others being hurt. And now I'm trying to think if there was a time in canon where Jack was hurt or mistreated and Sawyer got pissed off at whoever did it. I don't think there is. Apart from him warning him against Kate in WTCMB. I think that's why we all write hurt!Jack with Sawyer taking care of him so much because we really need it since they won't give it to us!

I really wasn't at all fond of the premiere. I just hated the direction they went with Jack. HATED IT. :-/

HEE. Totally.

(But, you don't like Juliette? Aww, but I luff her! She's just so...ninja.)
