Lost: Eggtown



Oh wow. Way to zing me, Lost. Here I thought they were going for "Kate had Sawyer's child and Jack can't handle it because he's a selfish bastard and it's like very, very bad fanfic and I think I'm going to scream!" Until that very last word.

"Hey, Aaron." Which must mean Claire dies! Or stays on the island. So much for that vision of her getting on the helicopter.

And OMG, a fic I wrote where Kate raises Aaron is now canon. Kinda! Except for the Jack/Kate part of it. So Jack doesn't want to see his nephew because he's too sad about Claire. :-( So much for happy future fics with the Shephards. And the "him" Kate had to get back to is probably Aaron. Looking less and less likely that Sawyer makes it off the island. (And no, please don't tell me!)

I am relieved that Kate doesn't actually give birth. Seriously. I thought they might be going for "whose baby is it" angle there for a bit and keeping the triangle alive that way.

Hmmm. Hmmm. Hmmm. (Oh, and what is up with Spooning!Action!Sawyer? *joins flist in protesting lack of any kind of sex*)

Locke is such a power-mad maniac. He makes Ben look reasonable. Why *would* anyone stay there with him, other than that it feels safe?

And what happened to Sayid and Desmond?! Back straight to the mainland? Clearly, they're not dead!

And hey, now I can go watch SPN! ... er, probably tomorrow.

I did wonder, just for the barest second, if it was Jack's baby Kate had instead of Sawyer's. Thank god they didn't go there.

Locke is a freak! And a scary one at that.

Right, when I saw it was blond, I thought, "Yep, Sawyer's." Just like they wanted us to! Dammit, I got played! But I'm just relieved that the bad fanfic angle was just to throw us off to who the baby actually was. Ahh, Lost loves it some twists.

And Locke is bona fide nuts. I'm kind of hoping he blows himself up spectacularly before the season is out. I don't see him ever getting off the island, for obv. reasons.

From what I've gathered from spoiling myself on other people's reviews (which I always do), they worked the triangle, bad fan fic angle pretty hard in this episode. Which, gotta be honest, doesn't make me eager to watch it. I caught the last five minutes and was pretty shocked myself, by the whole Aaron thing, even without the hour long build up. But then I read this theory that's floating around that Kate lied to Sawyer, had his baby, and named it Aaron. And that hit me so wrong. :/ So, yeah. I'm glad I watched Supernatural.

I guess I'm relieved that the bad fanfic angle was mostly a dodge to distract us from the fact that it's Aaron and not an original production by Kate and Sawyer! I really don't think that Kate would have Sawyer's child and call him Aaron! That's too soap opera even for Lost! Er, at least I fervently hope so!

You missed some hot sawyer moments. :) And Jack looking fine in the future. (Which obv. still takes place before the events of TTLG.)

Oh yes! I was thinking, "Great, if it's blond, it's Sawyer's, if it has dark hair, it's Jack's." Even though I've ficced Kate taking care of Aaron, I didn't go there until she said his name. I'm just glad she didn't join the ranks of Lost's Most Knocked-Up Women.

It just figures that taking care of a child is the only thing that makes Kate straighten out her life. Way to go LOST, again women only live for children. We have no other purpose.

I'm glad I knew forever ago that it was Aaron, or I would've been mad irked at the buildup and ready to scream. Though for me, if I hadn't known, Jack not wanting to see Aaron would've given it away that it wasn't Sawyer's kid, because so far Jack has been supportive of Kate's relationship with Sawyer because he thinks that's what she wants. I don't think he'd be a jerk about it, I think he'd help her raise the kid if it were Sawyer's and Sawyer wasn't there. Even if he was there, Jack would still go see the kid. That it's Aaron he won't/can't bring himself to see really piques my interest as to what the hell goes down with Claire!

Ahh, I wouldn't put it past them to make Jack all pissy about Kate having Sawyer's baby, I honestly wouldn''t. :-/ I guess you have more faith in the writers than I do!

Hmm, I was so busy being relieved that Kate didn't actually get knocked-up, I didn't think of the "raising a baby redeems her" angle. I don't know that we should consider her redeemed. Her mother forgave her, more or less, and Jack still loves her, but I don't know that she's redeemed so much as just "surviving," a la Sawyer. Why, for example, isn't she as guilt-ridden as Jack about where things stand?

It's very hard for me to say where my sympathies lie after a Kate ep. I feel like I have to go through all the text for the subtext that will actually make it work for me. It's kind of like reading a fanfic with a scenario you weren't keen on, except that this is canon. It's weird because post-island Kate (with or without Jack, jail or a baby) has been ficced so much. It's weird to see the "definitive" version. And hey, I'm used to rejecting their reality and substituting my own!

I really think Claire must be dead. I can't imagine a scenario where she gets left behind but if she did that would definitely eat away at Jack. Color me very curious as to how the actual rescue happens and why there's such a deal with the devil being made! Possibly as an "or else everyone dies," kind of thing.

Yeah it's good that they avoided the bad fanfic angle. Because really, that'd have been lame. I sincerely hope Claire doesn't die. I mean, if she does the poor child really becomes parentless and, uhm, the psychic would have had some objections. Now I want to know how he is with Kate.

And go you for beating canon! ;)

I second. Though Sawyer with glasses and so-not-dressed along with leather-jacket Jack was the episode's highlight.

Locke is such a power-mad maniac. He makes Ben look reasonable. Why *would* anyone stay there with him, other than that it feels safe?

I guess houses are more comfortable than tents..? ;)

*waits eagerly for next episode, since it should make up for Des and Sayid's lost time in this*

I don't know that they're going to honor the psychic's predictions anymore, at this point in the game. They usually feel free to ignore past canon when it doesn't suit them anymore (like Charlie not being able to swim!) But, we shall see!

And hee, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's ficced Kate raising Aaron!

Nearly!naked Sawyer and Jack in leather were the definite highlights. Now we just need to get them into the same scene!

Locke is ca-razy but at least he's not openly trying to kill all of them. I guess it's the devil they know vs. the devil they don't know. They all seem a bit cozy (and unafraid and not-grieving Charlie) than you'd think.

And yes, Des and Sayid next week should be good!

And OMG, a fic I wrote where Kate raises Aaron is now canon.

When I first heard spoilers for this, it was your fic that I thought of. lol.

And yes, the whole setup looked like a bad fanfic. Thank god it wasn't.

Feb. 22nd, 2008 04:22 pm (UTC)
Ahh, that makes me smile! Probably it's been ficced before, though!

And yeah, it really did seem like bad fanfic last night. I am so tired of the triangle, at least the way they write it. Kate's character always suffers the most. I want to keep liking her but they make it so hard!

Claire would never let that baby go, I'm thinking she's dead.

Locke is a loon..seriously can you all see why I was comparing him to that Marlon Brando character--all I'm expecting is Jack to pull a Martin Sheen, and come up out of the water with a knife in his mouth.

I'm still standing by my rift theory, the chopper didn't land on the frieghter because they went into another parallel universe..or another time.

I keep getting this vibe off of Locke that he would sacrifice all of them to the island, like lock them in somewhere or poison them all..he's lost it, completely--but then again, I've never liked Locke so this is all nothing new for me.

I'm still wondering how with the spit factor alone that grenade didn't go off.

I agree, Claire is either dead or they think she's dead. I had totally pegged her as one of the Oceanic Six too, but it doesn't seem like she has a story apart from her baybee and Charlie, poor thing. And being Jack's half-sister.

Locke is totally a loon. I love that Sawyer actually called him Col. Kurtz! I don't get why he's still helping him, other than it beats *certain* death elsewhere. It's like playing with dynamite though. You know Locke's gonna blow sooner rather than later. And he would absolutely sacrifice them all. He's got that madman's gleam in his eye.

I'm a bit disappointed that's not the last of Miles. He's so boring/irritating. I guess 4 mildly interesting new characters was too tall an order to fill!

During the scene where Claire asks Kate to pick up Aaron, I thought for a second that maybe Aaron became Kate's son. And then I figured even LOST wouldn't do that. So you can imagine my shock at finding out that her kid actually is Aaron.

Ahh, yep, they went there! Which, I have to say, I do prefer to Sawyer knocking up Kate. j

I'm happy it's Aaron, as well, though I'm sorry for Claire. I think she stayed back, for whatever reason, while Kate took Aaron away. I just hope she didn't kidnap him.

I agree that "him" of the S3 finale is Aaron, I'm more and more convinced Sawyer stays on the island.

and, no sex, but Sawyer was hot! :)
halfdutch
Feb. 23rd, 2008 05:23 am (UTC)
I really don't see any way that Kate would kidnap Aaron from an unwilling Claire - it has to be with Claire's blessing or because she's dead. I just don't see a sinister angle there at all, just a sad one.

And yeah, Sawyer's really the only main character left (besides Locke, who we know is never leaving if he can help it) to stay behind.

Sawyer was smoking hot. MMMM.

I HOPE KATE HAVING AARON DOESN'T MEAN THAT CLAIRE IS DEAD, OMG. v_v My C/C-shipping heart can't take it. It's bad enough the C/C/A happy family got torn apart when Charlie died, but now this? Gyaaahhh! *distressed*

I wonder if/when Jack and Claire will find out they're related. Cause right now, that's the biggest question I want answered. Screw the smoke monster (it's only a demon anyway).

Feb. 23rd, 2008 05:25 am (UTC)
No happy endings for anyone here, looks like. Does not look good for Claire, does it? I am waiting to see how Jack and Claire realize they're related. Man, I hope it happens on the island and not, say, when Jack's back, without her. :-/

And ha, great icon!

I so thought of your story with Kate and Jack at the playground with Aaron. You are psychic! I think Jack's behaviour indicates Claire's alive and left behind. If she was dead he would be sad but not so shifty with Aaron.

As much as I loathe the love triangle, I do applaud them for not doing the whose baby is it storyline.
halfdutch
Feb. 23rd, 2008 05:28 am (UTC)
Hee, thank you, hon!

I don't know how to read Jack there I really can't see him leaving Claire behind but he sure is damn guilty about *something!* I could imagine that he's sad over her death and that's enough to keep him from wanting to see Aaron. Then again, the main points of that scene were a) to keep Jack and Kate apart, again and b) to keep the idea alive that the baby was Sawyer's and that was Jack couldn't face it. Although it would be awfully petty of him, if true, so I'm glad that's not the case! (Unless, you know, Sawyer was the love of his life, LOL! )

As soap opera-esque as this was, it could have been worse, definitely!

Yep, they played me too with the Aaron thing. Thank goodness, because otherwise Lost would be too much of a soap opera. Claire must be dead - I can't see her letting go of Aaron otherwise.

I totally missed the no sex night thing. I'm slower than usual this morning (I watched the show about an hour and a half ago), so I'm surprised to hear we're supposed to believe Kate and Sawyer didn't have sex. It just doesn't add up. They're hot for each other, they've had sex before, they're in the same bed wearing very little clothes, what's stopping them? The pregnancy=death thing? It's not like either Kate or Sawyer couldn't think of fun, hot, satisfying alternatives to baby-making sex. It makes no sense to me whatsoever.

I think Sayid and Desmond are off to Ben's evil overlord* second camp, where they can wait until the whole Oceanic Six story is ready.

*see what I mean about being slow? I shouldn't be commenting or writing considering I only got about three hours of sleep last night.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who got played! And that it's not as much of a soap opera as it could have been.

I totally thought Sawyer and Kate had had sex and if you look at those caps -- well, damn! She looks pretty damn satisfied. We'll just have to insert our own idea of what they got up to without going the baby-making route. ;)

Interesting theory about Sayid and Desmond!

And aww, poor, hon. I hope you get some sleep soon. *hugs*

Looking less and less likely that Sawyer makes it off the island. (And no, please don't tell me!)
I don't know why,but I am pretty sure Sawyer won't leave the island...

And Desmond and Sayid can't be dead!!!

Feb. 23rd, 2008 05:32 am (UTC)
I really don't see who else of importance can be left behind at this point. :-/ No one would miss Locke!

Well, we know Sayid makes it out okay, at least!

I thought of your "Guardian" story too. I think the theme of her wanting to keep Aaron safe fit right in. I'm not so happy about how Kate is lording over her mother and Jack about it as if she's better than them, though. Well, there's a lot of things I'm not so happy about Kate with, so I'll just add them to the list.
I'm glad to hear their WTF! moment had its impact, since I was spoiled for it. They sure did enough setup of the fakeout since the last episodes of Season 3 to make us believe Kate would be pregnant. (Which is why I didn't really believe they'd go there, I guess.)
halfdutch
Feb. 23rd, 2008 05:33 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks! I do think there's nothing sinister about Kate taking care of Aaron. She certainly never *wanted* a baby.

But yeah, the way they write Kate. Urgh.

And oh yeah, they've been planting the "is Kate pregnant" thing for ages. I'm glad this is the payoff because we've had quite enough knocked-up women on Lost!

Finally! Someone besides hendercats and me who didn't know the baby was Aaron, and who didn't "figure it out" along the way.

Yay for surprises and WTF moments!
halfdutch
Feb. 23rd, 2008 05:34 am (UTC)
Yaay! Glad we're not alone! It does rather suck to read someone's review where they say, "Wow, it was SO obvious." So I was pleasantly surprised. I totally wouldn't have put it past the show for Kate to have Sawyer's baby.
