Lost: The Other Woman



Well, I guess my transformation into a Juliet fan is complete. Not only did I like the ep but I was kind of "Woo!" when Jack kissed her. WHO KNEW? LOL.

And always good to see Goodwin again. I tend to like the island-based flashbacks. A lot more than the real world ones (time travel and flash-forwards excepted.)

And I was unspoiled, so the TV Guide spread, in which I glimpsed the phrase, "Juliet.. . killing people for Ben," had me think that she and Sayid are sexy, extremely well-dressed globe-trotting assassins in the future. Not so much! But it was fun to picture the Alias-type scenario, yes? (I suppose it could still happen...)

I am rather disappointed Juliet didn't kill Charlotte, except well, I suppose it's better if she's not going around killing people. Anymore.

And hey, Sawyer! Hi! *waves*

I thought they were going to make us go 2 whole weeks without Sawyer! At least we got a little of him there at the end.

Juliet and Sayid, hot globe-trotting assassins -- I think I could go for that. Spinoff, or just way more interesting flashforwards? Win, either way. :)

Well, I've always said I'd rather have no Sawyer than more frog-squishing (or at this rate, mooning-over-Kate), so I'm okay with him not being in every ep. But it was a nice little moment!

Photo shoots are sometimes better than the actual plot, I think! And yes, I'd totally watch that spinoff!

Juliet and Sayid being Alias-like assassins would be cool. And would provide opportunity for more of your great Sayid/Juliet fic! I like picturing Juliet in Sydney Bristow-esque getups. Liz is smokin'.

It was nice to see Sawyer for a minute!

I was beyond WOO! about the kiss. Over the moon! Some folks are like, how is Juliet good for Jack? Well, hey, she may not be the best woman out there in the whole world for him, but she's better for him than Kate is at this juncture. Us Jack-lovers will take what we can get! At least she's clear on what she wants from him.

I could practically hear all the Jacket fans from here, LOL! ;) I agree, he'd be better off with her than Kate at this point. Kate's pretty much worn out her welcome with both Jack and Sawyer. There was probably a way to keep the triangle viable and interesting but as it is, it's so hard to see what *anyone* sees in her at this point, alas.

And a Juliet/Sayid globe-trotting scenario would totally rock!

DUDE, we are experiencing the exact same thing re: Juliet. I used to hate her with a fiery passion and tonight I reached a peak of love for her. Go figure.

Oh good, it's not just me! I swear things are so different with her this season! :)

The kiss was so damn cute, and so damn sexy, and so damn hot, and so damn everything!

*still speechless*

HI, Sawyer! Did he cut his hair or I was imagining it?

YAY for the Juliet fan transformation! She's awesome. And at the end? I cheered.

Goodwin presence was nice. Though Tom was the best. Oh Tom, why did you leave us? *sighs*

she and Sayid are sexy, extremely well-dressed globe-trotting assassins in the future.

That'd have been awesomeness.

well yeah, Juliet should better not killing people around. Though I kinda didn't mind Charlotte this round, hoping it lasts.

Ooh, I didn't notice if Sawyer's cut his hair. Must rewatch!

I guess it's good that Charlotte's not straight-up bad but she seems to have taken over the "eeeevil/not eeeeevil" slot that Juliet occupied last season. Which was pretty annoying, to me, anyway!

My Jack love has faded over the seasons (way to go Darlton), but when he's with Juliet, that love knows no bounds; he becomes more of a person and less of a bellowing bull in a china shop. I ship the J team all the way!

I will be seriously angered if anything bad happens to Daniel. Daniel and Frank = S4 newby love. Miles? Meh. Charlotte? Look out for that...(shoves)oops...cliff. Although I hate to dislike a fellow redhead! Oh well. :)

If I were in charge of bringing back dead people on Lost, I'd certainly bring back Goodwin. For a myriad of reasons. And speaking of dead people, I sure hope that freaky looking Harper was a vision. I hate to think of her raising her oddly structured face again!

My Jack love has faded over the seasons (way to go Darlton), but when he's with Juliet, that love knows no bounds;

My reaction was the exact opposite last season. I hated how they aligned Jack with Juliet and made it seem he'd abandoned his friends and/or wasn't to be trusted. It just didn't work at all for me and I really resented what I saw as yet another forced romance. But now, since I'm liking her, I'm liking her with him. I definitely needed her to prove herself first. And yeah, Jack needs to chill, doesn't he? Get that boy laid, that might help! ;)

Daniel is indeed adorable. Best new character eva! And I've always liked Goodwin. Juliet has great taste in men, at least on the island! And Harper was very freaky! No wonder Goodwin wanted nothing to do with her!

well happy to know that you are now feeling the Juliet love! lol! never really disliked her, but I am still a bit meh. it takes energy to really dislike someone ;)

ahhh, globe-trotting assassins. could have been cool indeed! (write it!)

Mar. 13th, 2008 04:26 am (UTC)
Hee, I have energy to burn then, I guess, LOL. I tend to get a bit invested in Lost. (Were you around during my Ana-hating days?) But yes, I much prefer to enjoy Juliet! A very pleasant turn of events. Kate is kind of getting my "meh" these days.

And globe-trotting assassins could definitely happen! ;)

LOL. I don't want to admit I'm morphing into a Juliet fan myself...No, no *resists*. But I liked the kiss, I was jumping on my seat encouraging him to kiss her. Indeed, who knew?? ;)

I know! It's so strange! And rooting for them to kiss?! I was sure, last season, I'd implode if that happened but when she *did* kiss Jack it was kind of so lowkey and then she got off that great line to Sawyer and I found I didn't really mind. I think that's when I started not minding her, because she was finally throwing in her lot with Jack & Co. And snarking at Sawyer is always good! ;)

I was like that too! Only a little more hyper :P It was good ep, even though I hate Juliet. So that's saying something. Even if it was not as exciting as the previous episodes. It's like a breather or something.

Yes, the femme-centric eps so far seem to be not quite as intense as the boys'. The Economist and The Constant were amazing, less so Eggtown and The Other Woman. I used to loathe Juliet but she's really changed a lot, to me. It's weird, yes?

I hope Sawyer gets something interesting to do soon. Even though I'm enjoying this season, it hasn't offered much for Sawyer fangirls! (Apart from those boxers!)

Yeah, my thought was there were somehow trying to ease our minds or something. Prepare us for the following mindblowing episode or something. I don't know :P

Juliet has changed, but that doesn't make me like her. I don't know, I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to stuff like that.

Lol, those boxers indeed ♥. Yeah, I want more Sawyer. More nicknaming, badass Sawyer :D He's cute when he's playing that game with Hurley, but he needs more screentime.
So do the other characters like Jin and Sun and all the others who were - initially - the main characters. I sometimes miss the S1 athmosphere, although this season has hints of that, so I'm happy they did. But a little more screentime for the other survivors, and maybe some WALT would do me some good too :)

I was in particular incredibly impressed with how the show walked the line between explaining Juliet and excusing her. She's done horrible things, and Ben's hooks don't change that, but we know her so much better now. I feel like there's a good person in there who's interested in going forward for her own reasons now when I didn't so much before.

I lloooved the Juliet/Charlotte fight. One thing that this show has always done well is let the women really scrap with each other when they fight. They get violent; none of the catfighting nonsense.

The more complex they let the women be, the better, and EM is definitely capable of playing all those different subtleties. (Although that doesn't mean they have to be schizophrenic, a la Kate!) I can't believe how much my opinion of Juliet has changed -- and it's not just me! Does this mean you finally have a female character you can get behind wholeheartedly? (Apart from Alex or Danielle.) I'm typing this after Zelda's thinky post about the possibly problematic ending .. we shall see what it means for Juliet. I do hope they don't reduce to just another girly girl in need of saving. :-(

And ha, I've been missing good chick fights ever since Alias went off the air!

You could have knocked me over with a feather once I realized that Juliet had actually become my female viewpoint character. She's like a more repressed Sawyer for me now, with the issues with being manipulated and her attraction towards a certain doctor (and certain doctor's answering inability to ignore her or learn how to deal with her.)

Aha! I knew it, another Juliet conversion! YAY!
wasn't that hug just the best, the way he rocked her.

Yep, I confess she's won me over! And aww, it was a sweet hug!
