Lost


Lost, you can still make me cry. I always thought that Sawyer (or Jack) would end up going the kamikaze route to save everyone. That, as far as Lost is concerned, is Sayid's redemption. I know it's not nearly enough for a lot of people. (As I just wrote in vixerunt's LJ, the fact that he was already nearly dead made that sting a little bit less. Wrong? Is it wrong that he essentially got the same fate as Michael? :-/ Or did he get the same fate as Annakin Skywalker? In my book, he died a hero. And a man, not a zombie.

I am glad Jin didn't leave Sun, fwiw. Is that the right end for them? Yes, no, I don't know. And are the dead really dead, if Locke wants them that way...?

And is it wrong that I was just as glad that Jack decides to save Sawyer (even if Sawyer can't trust Jack?) Really, who would just stand there and let a bomb go off? (Old, suicidal Sawyer, right? Which is where/who I guess Richard is now.)

This show is going to kill me before the end

Also... wait.. is Frank dead?!! :-(

There's still time for more kamikaze.

I agree with you about Sayid. He wanted it to end, and a man who kills with his feet is not just going to sit around doing nothing.

I liked Jin not leaving Sun, and yet...now Sun's crappy parents raise Ji Yeon? I'm not really okay with that.

yes, I know. :-(

I would have been more pissed at Jin leaving Sun, tbh. Ji-Yeon's never known her dad and ... I don't know, it seemed more fitting that he stay with Sun. I don't think he could live with himself -- or face Ji-Yeon -- if he had lived while Sun had died.

Sayid... I guess, like Jack and Sawyer, he's had so many brushes with death. I think they tried to give him one that was meaningful or worth something.

Lost can still make me cry too. I think I cried three times during this ep, but what hit me the hardest was when Hurley cried for his friends on the beach. So sad. :/

Word about pretty much everything. And well, at least Sayid died being himself. And after not having shot his boyfriend Desmond.

Also... wait.. is Frank dead?!! :-(

TELL ME HE ISN'T. GOD I NEED HIM TO APPEAR OUT OF THAT GODDAMN OCEAN FIRST THING NEXT EPISODE OR SOMETHING. WHEN I REALIZES HE MIGHT HAVE DIED TOO I WAS HEARTBROKEN ALMOST AS MUCH AS FOR SAYID/SUN/JIN. PLEASE JUST NOT THAT. *clings to Frank*

In my book, he died a hero. And a man, not a zombie.

I agree. I feel that Desmond saved Sayid - brought back his humanity, made him look at what he had become and reach deep down to bring his real self back. Since leaving the well, you could note very small bits of life returning to Sayid. As Dogen said, once the blackness gets to his heart, he's gone. So the questions Des asked him at the well kept those last tendrils of darkness from reaching his heart and live!Sayid was slowly reborn.

Notice how much more human Sayid was when Jack woke up in the boat, and later when he met up with the group? That darkness was retreating. Then on the boat - in the moment of need for his friends - rebirth and sacrifice. Redemption.

Sayid was never one of my favorites, but I hated what had happened to him. If he had to die, he died on his own terms, his whole self again, saving not only some of those on the sub, but also Desmond as well...from the well... :\

I fear Frank is gone, although others have lived through worse (like being on top of a hydrogen bomb when it exploded). I would have cared a lot more if it had been S4 Frank. He was relegated to one-liners this season. But still, I like him.

Sun and Jin? Broke my heart with the "I'm not leaving you." But my faith is in the sideways world for them. That they continue there because they are dead on the island. And they live happily ever after.

Maybe that's what will happen. If they die on the island, their other selves will carry on? Maybe crazy Charlie will find his Claire in the sideways world and he'll live happily ever after there with her.

Must admit that I held it together until that single tear slipped down Hurley's cheek. Then he sobbed. Then I sobbed. And that was all she wrote.

/extremely long, rambling comment. It's your own fault, you know. If you hated the show now like many of the others, I wouldn't have bothered to reply! I'm so glad you are still on board, come what may. ♥

Frank got up after the blast (The captain was still down), but I think it's safe to say he didn't make it since he didn't have an air canister. Maybe he'll pop up out of the ocean next week, but since we're getting down to the very end of the show, I think we're going to see more and more deaths.

I've seen nothing but positive reactions (Mixed in with a lot of sadness) on the flist. I'm actually a little surprised. I thought it was the best Lost episode this season with good pacing, good acting, good story. Like Lost of old. I didn't think anyone else would feel the same way!

For the first time since this show started...I'm not watching regularly :( I just feel like it's going to be kind of a snuff film at this point and I don't know if I have it in me to watch. I did watch last night and in the words of Sawyer, "Son of a bitch." That was harsh. Sun, Jin, Sayid and Frank? All at once?

They better not kill of Hurley or Sawyer. I'm just sayin'.

oh I'm so glad I found someone else who liked (at least parts of ) this episode.
Yes, maybe the Titanic scene was bad, but I really liked the episode. I liked that I'm still involved enough to cry when Hurley did.
Hurley crying felt heartbreaking and relieving at the same time, because it felt so incredibly real ! (While this time Foxy took a little too long to produce a few tears).

I loved the J/S moments (I was hoping for a mouth-to-mouth but.. oh well), it was awesome that Jack decided to save him.
I'm sorry for Sayid, but I agree that he died a hero and a man, and he was headed to death for a while now.
Jin and Sun... I was a little disappointed she didn't try to make him go by mentioning their daughter, but it was moving all the same and at least they are together.

I guess I'm goind to have to see how the show ends, but this ep just turned me into an emotional mess. (Wait, I may have been that way *before* I watched "The Candidate." silly me!)

I felt bad for Frank. No one even asked about him on the beach. I'm glad Sayid didn't "die" a zombie. Are they dead? Where does the sideways 'verse fit in? Did Not!Locke break the rules??

*sigh*

I'm glad Jin stayed with Sun too.

i really thought frank was going to have somewhat of a purpose on this show, but it seems... not so much.

i was waiting for sun to tell jin to leave her for their daughter's sake. i was surprisingly touched by their death, much more so than their reunion.

and jack saved sawyer!!! that made me so happy (even if sawyer caused the whole mess to begin with).
