Lost: I do


I was really dreading this episode because that promo made it look like Jack didn't care whether Sawyer lived or died and if that's the case than my Jack love would be completely dead. If he had abandoned Sawyer and Kate -- and everyone else -- by getting himself off the island, well, they couldn't really let him do that, could they? I'm very glad that was just a ruse. Because that's what Michael did.

So, Jack is being heroic after all. He's letting them escape and he's not giving into Juliet and he's not just playing along. He is being a better man than it seemed like they were going to let him be.

Definitely the best Kate backstory yet. Made me cry when she had to leave Nathan. :-(

And I'm kind of incoherent about the Sawyer/Kate. Oh Sawyer. He's never let himself be that open. Just Josh's face. That was ... beautiful. And also made me cry. Just the way they looked at each other...!

I thought they might end it with us not knowing if Sawyer was alive or dead and I'm really glad that's not the case.

I'm a little too withdrawn from Lost to be blown away, but I am relieved.

As I told Amber: everyone knows how I feel about Jack, but the boy kicked my ass tonight. It was so nice to have him back in control of himself again. I was two devil horns in the air 'im - this should be marked on a calendar. :D

And I'm with you on Kate. This episode was the first where I actually felt something for her, because she so obviously loved Kevin and he so obviously loved her, and OBVIOUSLY Nathan Fillion should pop up again at some point because - well, because. BECAUSE.

Hee, actually I don't know how you feel about Jack! We mostly talk about music! But agreed, nice that Jack grew a pair again. And at last an episode where he doesn't cry! Really, they were turning him back into Charlie Salinger. And no one wants that! Great to see him in control again.

I have liked some of the Kate backstories here and there but they always seem to fumble the ball. No fumbling this time. ;)

And mmm, cage!sex.

I love Jack for not pulling a Michael. I never thought he would because, after all, he's Jack. But he stepped it up from there, letting Ben think he had emotionally manipulated him into doing the surgery when the fact was it was Jack's plan all along to totally screw him over and arrange Sawyer and Kate's freedom.

I really enjoyed Kate's backstory in this episode and it give me a lot to consider about what it means for her character and her relationships with people. There was a lot of depth to it and I enjoyed it a lot.

I thought they might end it with us not knowing if Sawyer was alive or dead and I'm really glad that's not the case.

Yeah, I don't think I could have dealt with that. Again.

I actually thought they might go that route with Jack. I mean, if they can turn him into scary Stalker!boy, anything is possible. And given that they don't even seem to like him much, yep, I thought they might go there. *WHEW*

And yes, Sawyer lives! And loves! ;) Yes! That's a very good thing.

NATHAN!

Why can't we keep him?! *Whines*

He was a keeper, definitely. Awww, but Kate couldn't stay. The way she said goodbye, trying to make sure he didn't get any blame. And giving back the necklace ... *wibbles*

She loved him! It kills me, kills me dead!

Though the way it played out just doesn't scan with the smirky 'whatever' sort of attitude she had while talking about it during the I Never game. I expected a spur of the moment Vegas wedding, not THAT. :-/

Aww, continuity is not Lost's strong point. But there's worse sins of continuity, definitely.

Man, I'm beat suddenly. *collapses* I think Lost wore me out, a little.

This is true. And yeah, I have seen worse continuity issues before. :P

I too am tired but also strangely WIRED. I fear there will be little sleep for me tonight!

*Huggles* :D

Hi. Mind-meld with me. Jack did good, didn't he? He made it through and he earned our trust. And Josh...it's gonna take days before I can talk about him coherently. *loves him always forever and unconditionaly* I'm happy. 'nuff said.

Awww, good. I'm feeling pretty damn incoherent too. But yes, they pulled Jack back from the brink. He really came through in the end. And Josh was just ... GUH. That man. Does his wife even know how lucky she is?

I think the crappiest writers in the world couldn't unwrite all that stalwart and true Jack stuff. They could try, but the would not be sucessfull. Or something, it's possible I'm biased. And oh with the Nathan and oh with the sadness and the crying. And Oh with the skate that I'm sort of in love with maybe a little.

Yaay! *pulls over to the Skate side* I put in a poll option this week just for you! :-)
Seriously, in my mind, she loves both of them. And it's pretty canon Sawyer loves Jack ... now we just need Jack to admit he loves Sawyer!

And I really thought they were trying to set Jack up as a traitor. Because with what the writers have been saying about him, my confidence in them was pretty much shot. They don't even seem like they like their characters anymore. So yeah, whew.

I'm a happy girl tonight. At any rate, as happy as I can be, given how I felt before.

I disagree with you about the backstory, but I'm on board with everything else.

Yay! What a relief, huh? I really thought Jack was going to sell him out and then the rest of the season would be trying to redeem him or something. *whew*

And aww, no Nathan love? You know, I like him and I liked him in this but I'm not a rabid fangirl or anything. ;) And I belived his and Kate's romance.

I liked the epi, I didn't think it was the thrill ride they said it was going to be though, but still I've had no real problems with this season, just minor plot points like how no one, none of them, not Desmond or even the tailies saw that other island.

Jack is such a good guy though, after what he saw he could have totally just said screw them, but he didn't, but then again, he said Kate, he never really mentioned Sawyer--I'm taking it as being implied he meant Kate and Sawyer *smile*.

That was the best backstory, oh Nathan..I swear between Nathan, Foxy and Josh, all of them..I was in heaven.

The way he said he loved her too..that really was heartbreaking, it wasn't just that he said that, it was the way he did.

I couldn't like Jack anymore if seeing Sawyer and Kate together made him abandon them both. He has to be a better man than that, if they're keeping him true to the character we've known.

I'd have to have given this whole season about a D so far before tonight, but this did help win me back over. And set up some good stuff. Although the Skate enables the Jack/Juliet. *sigh* Can't win them all.

And somehow Sawyer made saying "I love you too" believable! ;) Because he was almost joking, but he wasn't. Them together was just so, so good.

Yay!! I was watching at a bit of a remove, waiting to see what Jack would do, honestly. And I'm so glad the promos were misleading! *WHEW*

And OMG, the Skate!!! *happy sigh*

I'm happy I didn't give in and go see the promo clip =D

hero!Jack is love. and Sawyer is love (he pwns my soul, really). And I want to hold Nathan and cure his poor broken heart.

and I'm just really really happy :) *smooches*

doesn't make interesting comments, but hey! woo hoo!

That promo really made me anxious that I could no longer Jack. A little bit of my Jack love slipped away this week, that's for sure and it only came back when he let Sawyer and Kate escape. (Although that means he's stuck there with Juliet, alas!)

Jack being heroic and Sawyer being so vulnerable and self-sacrificing. LOVE! (Although I still think they should have run at first, even if they thought they had nowhere to go.)

Yay for being happy! ;)

Definitely the best Kate backstory yet.

Word. The only part I didn't like about it was when she called the Marshall...it was unecessary and pretty contrived.

In others news: hot cage sex. UHN. Betcha that's one survillance that'll be getting borrowed a lot in Otherville...

Yeah, that took me by surprise. And I don't believe he would have given up on her if she'd really stayed put.

And oh yeah for hot cage sex!

Betcha that's one survillance that'll be getting borrowed a lot in Otherville...


Ha! Definitely! ;)

i'm just glad sawyer is alive in the promo, or i'd spend 13 weeks rock back and forth chewing on the drapes. I was too busy going crazy about sawyer on hsi knees with a gun to his head to get to excited about how awesome jack was at the end of this ep. cause serouisly is it so hard to give the sawyer fans a break before going on a long hiatus! grrrr!
