Lost: The Last Recruit



So... the last recruit is Jack? *sadface* Although I'm more and more convinced (as alliecat8 said) that Jack is going to be the one to stay behind on the island. Even if it's all not real. Jack is so born to this, isn't he? :-( Lonely, sad, task-driven man.

Also, Desmond: Totally not dead. Right? Otherwise, there will be rioting. And this proves Sayid can be saved, right?! Wow, I really hope so.

More cop Sawyer! Cuffing Sayid!!! Ahhh, that was a nice moment.

Sawyer and Jack moment on the boat -- dammit, why do they always have to be on opposite sides? Also, buzzkill on the big Sun/Jin reunion... don't they know there isn't enough time left for happy ending montages, sigh? Also, this is how she gets her speech back? Cheesy!

Overall, enough to make me happy, although Desmond in the sideways verse continues to creep me out with his always being Johnny on the spot. At least he's not running anyone over this time! How will it all end (in the sideways verse)?

On the island, god only knows. Or, you know, they could end up being just one big 'verse. Let's see: Desmond is trying to take Locke down. Jack is trying to save him/fulfill his destiny. Sawyer is done with the island -- I wish! Just let the man leave, will you?

So weirdly, I am in a good place about Lost right now. They seem to be alternating one I hate with one I like/love lately. Can you really go wrong with more cop!Sawyer? I'm so enjoying the sideways verse at the moment. It feels so old school "when will their paths cross?" Lost, to me.

Nah. Can't be dead. He can't. WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE IT TOTALLY GOES HAND IN HAND WITH MY SHIPPING. Seriously, if Sayid gets saved because of Desmond I'll find myself totally gleeing.

the last recruit is Jack? *sadface*

This. Tell me it lasts for maybe five minutes next ep. Really. I can't stomach that.

Cop Sawyer cuffing Sayid = VERY HOT.

Word, word and word, but at least they got reunited before the finale. I totally was giving up hope on that.

Yeah, creeper!Des is a creeper. O___o

And word about the alt.

Re: Jack as the "Last Recruit"? Yeah, its looking that way to me too. Jack/Locke are Darlton's OTP...who knew?

I get the feeling that last night may have been our last Jack/Sawyer scene and I'm sad. Can't these two get along for more than 10 minutes? Please? They are just so sexy when they cooperate. I want another scene like the one they shared in Exodus, complete with mutual respect, and dare I say...affection.

I've never been a huge Desmond fan (yeah I know...I'm in a minority of one), but damn, AU Desmond is HOT!HOT!HOT! Perhaps I just like my Scots clean cut and well suited.

I agree the Sun/Jin reunion. It took too damn long, and was poorly timed; true that the English thing was too cheesy for words. Both actors have been wasted for the past two seasons; better that they would have gone out with a blaze of glory in Season 4.

Sawyer+Sayid: handcuffs..tosseling in the dirt...Miranda rights have never been so hot.

I think that ultimately we're going to be mostly happy with the way the show ends, although it's looking more and more like my gut instinct about Jack was right. My feeling about the two 'verses is that they are going to "collide" somehow -- as a part of the "incident" that sinks the island, maybe? The alt!universe will turn out to be reality and in it the dead loves of the remaining Losties are alive, and Sawyer and Juliet get that coffee date and everything that comes after...meanwhile, who knows what will become of Jack? I feel like he'll be left on the island to be the last recruit; the one who guards Smokey for all eternity. But the island sank! Maybe that's why they've got two islands, and Jack and Flocke will be left on Hydra island? Are my last words when they show the black-and-white Lost logo for the last time, "Poor hero Jack"?

I'm like you, though, I'm in a good place about it. They've told us from Day 1 that there won't be a happy ending for everyone. Meanwhile, this fandom here on LJ is so predominantly about fanfic, it's looking like they'll leave us with a million scenarios where we can make it all better for Jack -- oh my, I can do my h/c thing with Jack for all eternity, lol! ;D

I didn't like the sideways 'verse until this episode. Now it's all starting to come together for me. Desmond's role is very weird...it seems almost Dr. Who-ish to me, which is REALLY weird since I've only watched the two or three Dr. Who episodes Megan sent me...but he's definitely the one that everything in alt!land seems to revolve around, isn't he? Does that mean that alt!Widmore is a good guy, and does that mean that if the two worlds collide he'll end up defeating Flocke? I don't think it would be good if Flocke gets turned loose in the world! We could speculate til the cows come home. And since I'm stuck in bed for the next few days, I think I WILL! And write a little fanfic while I'm at it. Some fic where everything works out fine.

We have a one-week hiatus, right, so let the happy-buzz roll!
