Lost: Meet Kevin Johnson


I was one of the people NOT looking forward to Michael coming back. But I have to say, Harold rocked the hell out of this ep. (I've always liked Harold, Michael, not so much.) I somehow didn't think he'd made it back to the mainland but wherever he went, he really was in hell. So yeah, for the first Michael ep I've ever liked.

Sayid turns him in! I don't think that's going to end well. No matter how hot the captain is! Sayid is never wrong -- except in this case, he kind of has to be, doesn't he?

I had actually completely forgotten that someone was going to get killed off -- until it became painfully clear that Karl was about to go -- a quiet interlude? Now? With cutesy couple stuff? Yer doomed! But I didn't expect Danielle to bite it! bachlava -- are you still with us?

Wow, very little Sawyer. No beachies at all. And Tom is, yep, canonically gay! Woo hoo! Why do I think that must have been the actor's call there?

And Aaron is one of the Oceanic Six. So it's NOT Michael in the coffin? So many questions!

Someone mentioned that maybe this is "the last time you thought with your heart and not your head" that Ben mentions to Sayid. That would make sense, since it seems that Sayid is wrong and undoubtedly something not so nice will happen as a result.

Hee, it was probably M.C. Gainey's call because he went around telling everyone he was playing Tom as gay with the hots for Jack. It was so there, so obvious, TPTB would have been silly not to just come out with it. :)

I'm pissed off about this Aaron is one of the O6 thing b/c as xphile101 put it, it feels like such a cheat. And that D&C said that he wasn't one of the O6. I...hate them sometimes.

I'm still hoping somehow Danielle isn't dead, even though rationally I know she's definitely so. That was such a crappy way for her to go.

Aha! Interesting how Sayid's pivotal moment here is when he learns Michael is working for Ben -- as he will himself end up doing! Because he made the decision here to trust the captain instead of Michael? (He really has no reason for trusting EITHER of them but Michael's track record is not good.)

So this is Sayid's error. What is Jack's? I was kind of thinking we'd see the helicopter leave with the six on board and and a Jack/Sawyer goodbye and what exactly kind of deal with the devil they've all made.

I guess that's for the rest of the season: What happens now on the island? How do they all get to the point they have? Having Aaron be one of the six does feel like a cheat. *harrumphs*

And I was totally thinking it was Ben behind Karl's death -- the way he eyed Karl touching Alex seemed to indicate that he did NOT approve. And he had no love lost for Danielle. Hmmmm. But then again, this show loves to deliberately mislead us.

ETA: Because last-minute thoughts deserve to be put where they make sense! ;)

"I was one of the people NOT looking forward to Michael coming back."

Wait -- there were people who WERE looking forward to Michael coming back?
...
But I did very much enjoy this episode and thought it was my favourite Michael ep as well.

I've been 99% sure that Aaron counted as one of the Six since that Kate episode. They said that by the end of last week we would know who all of the Six were, and since it wasn't clear if Jin ever got off the island alive, I assumed it meant that Aaron did count.

I suppose! LOlz! Yeah, it was far and away the best Michael ep ever.

And I was thinking maybe they'd count Michael among the Six and that he'd be in the coffin. Although I wasn't sure if Aaron counted.

Ahh, okay, that would've made sense. Michael did seem like a good candidate for the person in the coffin. I have no idea who it could be... my initial thought was Benry, but I figured that was too obvious. I'd say Charles Widmore perhaps, but Penny or someone would have attended and it wouldn't have been in such a shady area considering how much money he has. I still have a funny feeling it's someone we don't know very well/haven't met yet.

Canon gay Tom was an highlight! Along with Des and Sayid waking up in that cabin. Erm, yes, it was my favorite scene.

Agreed about Harold. I don't really care about Micheal but he's really, really good and I loved his performance.

Danielle can't be dead. They said she was going to get a flashback. I deny, deny and DENY it. Not until we're sure. Poor Karl! Sawyer's going to be pissed. About Sayid.... uuuhm, everyone makes mistakes. Though I hope this won't be one, even if it'd be an excellent chance for Ben to recruit him. I hope he manages some snuggling with Desmond before everything blows up.

Yes, there should be some Des/Sayid snuggling, pronto! (They've robbed us of our J/S but Des/Sayid is really a lovely thing!)

And I don't know about Danielle! I wouldn't trust anything they say at this point. Who knows?!

the first Michael ep I've ever liked
And it was really a good one!

I'm so disappointed they killed off Danielle, I'm still hoping it isn't true.

gay!Tom made me squee! And OMG I just learned now that the actor was Rosco Coltrane in Dukes of Hazzard!

So is really Aaron the 6th? Because I was kind of thinking that maybe Michael makes it back to the island, or reunites with the other 5 somehow, and then he gets rescued with them and becomes one of the 6...*head hurts*

Danielle might not be dead -- who knows? We'll have to see.

And ha, I missed the Dukes remake, LOL.

And I don't know if Aaron's the sixth now or not -- I added the Q to a new poll because now I'm confused!

I was most happy for Tom getting some. *smile*

Harold I like, Michael I don't, Harold is a wonderful actor, but that character good god, it's like making a pact with the devil, oh they let him off the island but in a way he's still freakin' there.

Sayid turns him in and ends up doing pretty much the same exact job, I love the irony there.

Sawyer and Jack, we had better get one hell of a big payoff, that's all I'm saying.

Danielle's death, totally cheap, really, with how tough she is, to not even be able to put up a fight, it really was cheap.

The guy was no Jack but good for Tom, LOL! :)

Harold is a good actor but he's had little to do as Michael but scream "Waaaalt" all the damn time. He's a better character when Walt's not in the picture.

Sayid turns him in and ends up doing pretty much the same exact job, I love the irony there

Word!

I am hoping for a big Jack/Sawyer scene. They owe us! And I don't know if Danielle's really gone ... we'll see!

I wasn't so much looking forward to see Michael come back. I just wanted Walt. Yeah, I know. Very silly of me, but I've liked him since the beginning. Anypoo. It was in a weird sense good to see him again, just because it's a familiar face. But his character is really screwed up. And just like you, I like Harold, it's just that Michael is pretty fucked up. Well, at least he started to be when he killed Libby and Ana-Lucia (although I didn't mind Ana being killed off)

Wow. And I couldn't have said it better myself about Sayid giving Michael up. That's got to end badly. Even though that Captain = Captain SexyPants.
Seriously. (Also, Miles = ♥)

I hated that Karl and Danielle got killed off. But I did not expect it. I actually JUMPED when Karl was shot. That was a first. Seriously.

There's no reason why Michael shouldn't be in the coffin. Did the paper clipping Jack had say it was one of the Oceanic Six that died? If so, don't mind this. But if it didn't say that, they could have kept Michael a secret? Or something. Maybe he still dies or whatever. It's got to be something Kate wouldn't think of seeing when he's died and someone that could have Jack crying over him. Who would Jack cry over? Not Michael, I'm thinking. /ramble.

*still wondering how Aaron ends up with Kate and where the hell Claire is*

cannot help to worry that Sayid did a bad move there. he did it as something against Ben, a favor to the freighter and hot!captain, but since he ends up Ben's hit man.... yeah. not good foreshadowing.

I forgot that someone would die too! and never ever saw it coming, especially for Danielle. *sigh*

I have NO IDEA about the O6, and frankly, it's starting to bore me :/
