Lost: The Constant


Wow. I was SO FUCKING AFRAID they were going to kill Desmond! I had a feeling earlier today that he might go ... AUGH. Because you know they'd do it!

*deep breath*

Okay, raise your hands who didn't cry over that episode? Over the Penny/Desmond epic phone call? *looks around*

Wow. I'm kind of emotionally drained now.

So Daniel's been coming and going from the island this whole time? No wonder he cried when he saw the footage on TV! No wonder he's so messed up! (Or is once enough to do it?) And I totally want Sayid around if I ever need anything fixed, including my mind. (Waits for "Sayid is my constant" icons. Although you know me, I'm still more of a Sawyer girl but I didn't even miss him this ep. He needs to get off Team Locke and away from Kate, yes? Plz!)

Thank you, Lost. Stellar ep. *whew*

*braces for Daniel/Desmond slash*

Oh, and my TiVoand my cable are talking to each other again, which is minor miracle, somewhat less miraculous than a ship-to-shore phone call from a broken phone. But it means I got to watch Lost tonight still, as I wasn't home. Hurrah!

*keeps hands down* I was so all teary! I'm completely drained, too. I loved, loved this one. And Des lives! *iz happy*

Sawyer needs SO to get off team Locke and Kate. I didn't miss him really this round too (well, Des and Sayid are my two favorites so I really wasn't thinking about anyone else), but it's worrying indeed. He doesn't belong there. *nods* I want a Sayid around, too! Oh, I'm so going to icon the hell out of this as soon as the caps are out. *nods eagerly*

And Darlton need to get points. In one episode I managed to slash Des with both Sayid and Dan while I cried at his phone conversation and decided that Des/Pen is my official show OTP. Go logic!

Hee, we are very dexterous, indeed, being able to ship so any different people simultaneously! ;) (Right there with you, of course!)

And yay! Look forward to your icons. I need to rotate a few Des icons back in! :)

LOL simultaneous shipping is the best thing ever really. I think I need to write down all the plot bunnies that it gave me before I forget some ;)

It's so going to be the best icon making session ever.

Man, did I cry. I'm a sap, so I'm a sucker for things like that. It really was beautiful, that they got to talk to each other again and say I love you and that they would find each other. ;_; Now that's a Christmas present.

Great episode.

YAY! I really loved it too. God, I wasn't at all sure we'd get a happy ending there. I guess that's what killing off characters does, adds genuine suspense! Course, I prefer the happy ending!

I did say to Mr. Z at one point, "They can't kill Desmond! They can't!" I didn't really think he was gonna die, but I enjoyed feeling scared of it for a minute there.

Wait, I missed that Daniel's been coming and going. I need to re-watch.

I'm afraid I didn't cry, but I did think it was very sweet. I think the only time Lost has made me cry was when Charlie died actually, or maybe one other time. Not often anyway.

*wants a 'Sayid is my Constant' icon*

I didn't miss Sawyer either! Whazzup with that?! I think you're right, domesticated Sawyer isn't our cup of tea. I like him better on his own.

I was suddenly convinced that Desmond's time was up, but I'm sure we would have heard some fandom rumblings ahead of time if this were so. Still, I was sure they might really do it! (Practically) no one is safe after Charlie, right?

As for Daniel's coming and going: He doesn't remember Desmond! And you'd think you'd remember the guy who helped prove your theory of time travel and visited you from the future! And his note to himself that "Desmond is your constant" seemed to me both a reminder for if or when he lost his memory of the island and an indication that he's done it before and already knows what his constant is. And his emotional reaction to the footage of the wreckage of Flight 815, even though he had no idea why it was affecting him, seems to be explained by the idea that he'd already been to the island.

ETA: Oh, and Daniel asked if Desmond had been exposed to high levels of radiation or magnetism. We saw that Daniel was exposing himself to a lot of radiation during his experiments, so he seems susceptible to "side effects," like Desmond is, even if they manifest somewhat differently.

Wait, what? I must've missed that implication.

Here's the explanation I just offered Z, above, for that theory:

The memory loss has him coming and going and so far Desmond only did it that one other time, I'm just wondering exactly when this is happening and can this ALWAYS happen.

I loved this episode because I love that stuff..but they have to stop watching SciFi, from Torchwood now it seems an awful lot like Doctor Who. *smile*

That phone call, it nearly killed me, they are the key, I've said it from day one that they are, they really are my Odysseus and Penelope, and all he's tryin' to do is get home, and he's running into some freaky ass characters along the way. *smile*
halfdutch
Feb. 29th, 2008 03:51 pm (UTC)
Right, Desmond was exposed to high levels of magnetism and we saw that Daniel was exposed to high levels of radiation, so they're both susceptible. But, in Daniel's case, he's not time traveling, just losing his memory. Curious!

Hey, I haven't seen beyond "Adam" with Torchwood but it looks like Charles Widmore is showing up there too! That guy gets around! And yes, I do enjoy a good time-travel plot!

They've really managed to get one love story right on this show, and that's Desmond/Penny. *nods*

I didn't cry,but I was so stressed and afraid they'll kill off Desmond,especially after him finally talking to Penny!And yeah,that was exhausting!

And Daniel/Desmond slash?I think I like the idea;)

Feb. 29th, 2008 03:55 pm (UTC)
I was very stressed too! I was sure that no one was safe after Charlie, but we probably would have heard something ahead of time! Still, they put me through the wringer over this one!

And I've totally warmed up to Daniel! I think the icon you're using is my fave I've seen of him! :)

I think they'd get into serious troubles with the fan base,if they killed Desmond!But well,they knew we'd survive the emotional roller caster-we did before;)

Heeee,that icon is cute!

Such an AWESOME ep! Of course I was in tears at the end. So good, so moving, so right.

And I love the idea of time travel and of the constant. Dan is awesome as well. And Sayid too.

You're right, I didn't even miss the other characters, I was so sucked in this episode - and I too feared they were going to kill Desmond!

Feb. 29th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC)
Yay! It was incredibly awesome. Loved all of it. And I really did fear for Desmond there. I was not at all sure they *wouldn't* kill him off! Very relieved he's still around!

Especially after the "meh"ness that was the Kate ep.

ETA: My "m" key is sticking! :-(

Ooh, nice Daniel icon! :) Wow, I'm enjoying a new character! Who knew?

And here's my theory (cut and pasted from above comments cuz I'm lazy!):

As for Daniel's coming and going: He doesn't remember Desmond! And you'd think you'd remember the guy who helped prove your theory of time travel and visited you from the future! And his note to himself that "Desmond is your constant" seemed to me both a reminder for if or when he lost his memory of the island and an indication that he's done it before and already knows what his constant is.

all damn episode long I was so anxious and going.. "omg, they are going to kiss Desmond. they can't kill Des, can they? oh no!!!"

I totally cried at them on the phone. wow. that was awesome *draws hearts around them*

I think Dan has had some flashes, but you are right, that would explain why he cried when he watched the TV! and EVERYONE needs a Sayid to fix stuff all around. he ROCKS!
halfdutch
Feb. 29th, 2008 03:58 pm (UTC)
"omg, they are going to kiss Desmond.

Freudian slip, my dear? :) LOL! He could use a good kiss!

This ep explained a lot of Dan's twitchiness to me, and yep, his memory loss. Because he really should have remembered Desmond, and yet he didn't!

Sayid is just the bomb. I'm so glad he didn't magically transport to the future yet!

Heh, I'm usually all for unrequited and/or epic love stories, so I'm blaming Desmond for my lack of interest on his. I think I like Penny, but there's something about Desmond that keeps me on a neutral mode. If it'd been Sun and Jin I'm pretty sure my reaction would have been different.

The lack of time travel love, that's all me, though ;)

OMG, I never uttered a more heartfelt YES in my LIFE!!!

And I'm seeing everybody gearing up for Dan/Des slash, while my brain just can't seem to stop with the Des/Sayid. And I don't even LIKE Sayid. *ducks and cringes* He kinda won me over last night with all the badassery, though.

As for the time travel confuzzlement, I'll let Jack speak for me.

What? It takes a lot to make me cry.

So Daniel's been coming and going from the island this whole time? No wonder he cried when he saw the footage on TV!

That just made me think of something I hadn't yet thought of. Now that makes some sense.

He needs to get off Team Locke and away from Kate, yes?

God yes. Otherwise I want to kill him half the time.

Wow, I completely didn't catch that Daniel was crying in 4.2 because he knew he wasn't crazy now! Good catch! It probably explains how is personality has done such a turn-around, too.

I was SO FUCKING AFRAID they were going to kill Desmond! I had a feeling earlier today that he might go ... AUGH. Because you know they'd do it!

Since the Desmond-is-a-Seer storyline really didn't need to happen at all, at this juncture? I am so terrified that it's going to become relevant again when he has one final vision. You have no idea.

*braces for Daniel/Desmond slash*

Daniel clearly has such a crush on Des, it's precious.

Wow, I completely didn't catch that Daniel was crying in 4.2 because he knew he wasn't crazy now! Good catch!

I was actually thinking he was having an instinctual reaction to the footage of Flight 815 without remembering *why*. (Didn't he tell the girl he was with didn't know why he was crying?) Could have been lying, of course!) Although he seems to have become more his old self again on the island.

I had glimpsed a spoiler I was interpreting as a distinct possibility that Desmond might get bumped off. So I was on the edge of my seat here! But I'm so glad he'll stay around. I have no idea what happens to him but happy endings don't seem to be in the cards for anyone here. *clings*

And Daniel totally hearts Des!

I was really afraid for Desmond, too. I wish Lost would put characters I don't like in mortal danger for a change. ;)

My hand is staying down, I was so emotional during that phone call scene. But I was so scared they were going to kill Desmond, it was awful. And YES I had that AHA moment regarding Daniel crying when watching the footage. He's such an interesting character. I could definitely get on board Daniel/Desmond.

Kate annoys me this season. When the show first came back I was deeply in love with everyone since I'd had a break from all of them. But Kate just continues to be an obnoxious, manipulative busybody, and I have no interest in her character. Sawyer and Jack should just fuck each other for god's sake. And Locke is off the deep end, I'm sick of him.

Mar. 2nd, 2008 05:38 am (UTC)
I don't think I've ever liked a new character as much as Daniel, at least not in so short a time! And Desmond, yep, I was scared they were going to kill him off. Eeep! Glad they didn't do it.

Kate is very annoying this season. :-/ And Locke, yeah, he's lost it. I was really hoping that his being shot would take this time! Sadly, no!
