Lost: Ji Yeon

I was home in time to watch after all...


You all know how I feel about babies. :-/ In real life, they're adorable, of course, but as a dramatic device, they are BORING. BORING BORING BORING. Sorry, isis2105, but I almost wish they *would* kill off Sun so Yunjin can get a decent role because baby, this is not it.

The "Sun thinks Jin is dead" thing was not nearly enough of a twist for me. Which also means he's not one of the Oceanic Six, but gets off the island anyway? Hey, is there hope for Sawyer then to get off the island? (Future J/S and S/Sd is reborn!) Is there, indeed, no one to go back for? Is that all a ruse? For me, that's the only really interesting aspect that came out of this episode. I don't watch Lost for platitudes about instant karma and marriage or whatever. Okay, I'm an idiot... I've clearly watched too much Alias because I thought future Jin was married to someone else and there was a conspiracy about keeping the baby from him and all .. *rolls eyes at self* So he's really dead? I'm fine with that. Was it DDK's DUI? It never seemed like Jin and Sun would make it off the island together and it would have been really boring, honestly, if they had.

And of course we all knew that was going to be Michael on the boat. And is going to be Michael in the coffin...?

Oh, and the captain? HOTNESS. I don't know that actor... do I?He looked damned familiar, though. And the stage has been well set for more Desmond/Sayid, yes?
Next week: Someone dies. Could it be... Michael? (Seriously, I don't know, but who else might it be? Charlotte?)

ETA:
... the captain. Played by Grant Bowler. Don't think I have seen him before but he's rather like an Australian cross between... say, David Beckham and Daniel Craig, doncha think?

Oh, and squirrelly tank-top-wearing Freighter guy? Was totally the guy who Russell Crowe gleefully forked (if memory serves) to death in 3:10 to Yuma. Where's Russell when you need him?

Babies are DAMN boring. I am with you all the way.

Jin's side of the story was actually a FB, set in 2000, so I don't know that he's actually alive somewhere. (eta: oh, you already got that, sorry!) The leading theories thus far are 1) he dies on the island 2) he is still on the island and for some reason Sun had to leave him behind, and his grave is part of the cover-up (the grave does say 9/22/2004, after all).

I've seen the captain somewhere before too, and I just don't know where. It's makin' me crazy!

I don't know who's gonna die either! For once I'm unspoiled. I know one person it's definitely NOT, but that's it.

Well, I was clearly not watching closely enough. I tend to zone out during Sun/Jin eps, especially when people start going into labor! I suppose that makes the ep slightly more interesting, in retrospect...

And yeah, I don't really care one way or another about Jin's fate, sorry to say. :-/ I just got excited there for a minute because I thought that meant others had gotten off the island too.

I had heard about the "someone dies" spoiler a while back but wasn't sure about the timing so that's why I was so stressed out about Desmond during his ep!

yay you for tracking down the captain guy. yeah, i haven't seen him before either then. but you're right, he does look like a cross between david beckham and daniel craig. yummy. wanna take bets on how long it takes before he's slashed? :)

I don't think it'll be Jin that dies next week though...that would be too easy and too quick. I just hope it's not Des or Juliet.

i love that icon, btw. is that one of janie_tangerine's?

3... 2 .... 1... SLASH! ;)

I don't think it'll be Jin either. Didn't even occur to me as that would be far too obvious!

And I don't see how they can knock off Des or Juliet. I really think it'll be Michael or someone insignificant, like Charlotte or Frank. There's a few others I wouldn't miss but we shall see!

And yep, the icon's by the lovely miss J_T! (So's this one). At least we get to see Sawyer next week! Damn but it's been a Sawyer drought this season so far!

Ha, I think I saw one episode! And hee, I thought you were just saying the guy's rather unfortunate looking until I clicked on the link, LOL, I had no idea there was a dog boy!

LOL no, for realz. Joshua was awesome. ♥ And I recognized that guy two eps ago without his dog-boy make up! I was so proud of myself.

eh, I agree. BORING.
It's only right that Sun and Jin don't make it off the island together - too boring, again.
I had to LOL at your first interpretation of the episode, though. THAT would have been interesting. ;)

Also, why is that that all the guys on the freighter are hot? Seriously. Well, save for Michael, maybe.

and... when will they give us a Sawyer episode? I'm starting to really need it!

Jin and Sun stopped being interesting to me a long time ago, when their storyline became all about babies and "who's the father." I used to love them both, but yeah, mega boring! And I think I liked the ep better with Sun thinking Jin is dead. Eh, either way, not my favorite part of the show.

As it doesn't seem that Sawyer's going to be one of the Oceanic Six, I think they've been saving his ep until after that "reveal."

I agree. Babies are BO-RING.

I don't even want to speculate about the ff/fb whatever. Though I think that Jin is an O6, got off and died after the island. I had a theory, but the fact that Sun delivers during the FF made it nonsense, so I'll just chunk it ;)

THE CAPTAIN IS WAAAY HOT. I just wished we could trust him but whatever. He's hot and I'll take him.

Desmond/Sayid is totally my new cult ship. *goes plotting* and they shared a cabin! And they'll share one with bugs. And the good morning scene made me so ridiculously happy that the rest of the episode could have been shit and I wouldn't have cared an inch.

Duh. The fact that it looks like Micheal bites it makes me think he doesn't bite it. I mean, they bring him back for two episodes and then kill him off? Duh. I hope it's someone of the freighter crew or Charlotte or someone not important anyway. I mean, they seemingly killed Jin off and it's a main character, they won't go and kill off another main one the episode after...?

Was totally the guy who Russell Crowe gleefully forked (if memory serves) to death in 3:10 to Yuma. Where's Russell when you need him?

HERE'S where I had seen him. Thanks. I was killing my head over it. Heee, I guess old Wade is spooning with Evans in the westerns heaven?

The captain is insanely hot! :) Hope we see more of him. He and Des & Sayid were the only interesting things about this ep, definitely. Right now, I think Michael's going to be the last member of O6 and thus the man in the coffin, but that's just my hunch.

I don't know who's going to go. For all I know, it's someone really minor like Miles.

Trying to place freighter guy was bugging me too. Happy to be of service!

That's exactly what I thought when I saw the captain: HOTNESS!!!! I hope we're going to get more of him.

I don't really care much about Sun/Jin or his story, so I tried tpo focuse on Jack's smile (even if we got onlya few seconds of him) and Sayid's arms.

Yeah, boring, boring ep except for the Captain, Sayid & Des. Jack and Sawyer have had so little to do this season so far. Kinda funny. Sun and Jin have become really boring, alas. Can't say I'm sorry to see Jin go. :-/

I knew I saw that other guy before, 3:10 to Yuma!! Thank you for that!

The captain is HOT, seriously, I'd swab his deck any time he wants. ;)

I still feel bad for Sun though, talking to a headstone, showing the baby, I'm sentimental, but I don't like being jerked around like that..that flashforward and back--it's getting old, I think they are running out of ways to tell a story instead of just telling the freakin' story, good writing stands on it's own two feet without needing all those twists and turns like that.

Sorry for the mini-rant, but I'm wondering how they are going to do next week's one.

And I have to repeat it..THE CAPTAIN IS HOT! ;) And Yes, I knew he sort of looked familiar too, he was on Farscape, I loved that show.

I wasn't fond of the ff/fb device either. Let's fuck with the audience, huh? Eh.

Good thing we got some Captain, Desmond & Sayid, otherwise, a very, very boring ep!
