Lost - "What Kate Did"



"Are we saved?"
"No, not yet."

GUH.


Well, that had to be the most shippy episode ever! Sawyer/Kate, Jack/Kate and oh yeah, FINALLY, some Jack/Sawyer. (Still not nearly enough for me, but then I'm spoiled rotten by fandom. What are you gonna do?) And even some tasty Jin/Sun and GUH so very poignant Sayid/Shannon.

I knew about the Jate kiss but that was still WOW! Nice and long. That Kate certainly goes for the gusto when she kisses someone. Did anyone clock it? Is it longer than the Skate kiss? But THANK GOD SOMEONE finally kissed Jack. Well, my approved Jack kissing list has just two names on it, and Kate's one of them, so that was fine by me. ;-D

Sawyer actually being up was the biggest surprise and he's actually talking! And being Snarky!Flirty!SlightlyGrumpyOhHellNo!Sawyer again! With Kate! Awwwww, yay! I got the most excited about that because I hadn't expected it at all! *squeesqueesquee* Wow, looks like the Skate Ship is FULL SAIL AHEAD. Except for that kiss with Jack. This should jumpstart all those OT3 muses, eh? And awww, haircut coming up. At last!

And OK, finally I get around to squeeing about the JACK/SAWYER TOUCHING! foxxcub tipped me off that there would be some and isn't that just like me to expect even more? Jack being impressed with the bullet removal. Loved it. And of course, wrestling shirtless Sawyer back into bed. Darn Locke. Don't you have somewhere to be? ;-D

And kudos to all the writers who called that it would be Jack, Kate and Sun watching over Sawyer.

Sawyer being possessed by Wayne (which a few people actually called last week - go you!), was kind of lame. And what's with all the animal totems on the island? Charlie has a moth. Sawyer has a boar. Kate has a pretty romance novel horse.

I saw everything coming with Kate except that her "dad" was still alive and that Wayne was her real dad. And btw, "Wayne" was the name I gave to my "bad" Ken doll, LOL. So, of course he had to be evil.

And oh yeah, some other stuff happened. Is there anyone who DIDN'T know that Eko would have the missing footage?

Charlie - aww, return to form there. Michael, being useful. Eko, being mysterious and wise. Sayid being brokenhearted. :-( Made me cry. HARD.

And last note - at last SOMEONE rode a motorcycle in a flashback. I'd hoped it would be Sawyer but Kate's good too. ;-D

Ep in two weeks - aw, WHO THE HELL CARES? Nothing in the preview I care about. I'll just be rewatching choice selections from this ep for the next few weeks.

LMAO. Well said. Points for you.

And while I do not ship Jack/Sawyer, I did think of you and foxxcub when I saw this: http://www.lost-media.com/modules.php?name=coppermine&file=displayimage&album=829&pos=285

Awww, yeah! That's the closest we'll ever get to a makeout session, LOL. Although that gun exchange scene in "Exodus" was even more with the GUH subtext. ;-D

I need new icons now!!

*bounces, goes to see if anyone has made any yet*

Okay, I will admit, that Exodus Part 1 scene is one of my favorite Sawyer scenes ever.

*bounces, goes to see if anyone has made any yet*
I'm working on it. :D

Dude, it has been FOREVER since I read good OT3. What the hell happened? Where has all the OT3 gone?

Really? I don't know! LOL. I feel like there's been some around somewhere, recently.

And hey, I thought you were always anxious to not have Sawyer too big a part of your J/K. ;-D

Yes, my J/K. Seems like every primary J/K fic just has to have Sawyer in there somewhere, and it gets annoying. OT3 is a whole different animal. ;)

LOL about Wayne. Ever notice how serial killers all seem to have Wayne in their names? ;)

Yay for Jack/Sawyer touching! And Jack kissing, because you're right, someone needed to do it! But I don't see how Skate can be anything but heartbreaking now. Sawyer's all flirty, but we know that when Kate looks at him she sees someone she hates, someone she killed.

Yes, it's true! Wayne = evil. Unless you play hockey. ;-D

I agree, the shiny new Skate is doomed. Not least because no relationship can ever last on TV because happy couples = low ratings. But I'm enjoying all the shippiness while they keep their (ahem) balls in the air. Oh, the angst! I just feel like fandom has made these relationships more complex than the show ever will.

(Weirdly, the song I'm listening to has a chorus of "push the button" and I was just about to type about how we fanfic writers never care about stuff like that, LOL. Just the yummy UST and smut and angst. ;-D)

Sawyer actually being up was the biggest surprise and he's actually talking!

I know! I was totally expecting him to be all Fever!Delirium!Unconcious!Sawyer for a bit yet...man, he recovered fast. Well, it means we get to go back to the snark and the sex and the flirting (lookit at what icon I'm using, hee) that much sooner, so I'm good.

Plus I just loved his reaction once he was back out in the jungle: "Son of a bitch." And I loved his "OMFG I'm seeing imaginary horses" face.

And btw, "Wayne" was the name I gave to my "bad" Ken doll, LOL.

...you had a "bad" Ken doll?? There's a story in here, and I want to hear it!

Ep in two weeks - aw, WHO THE HELL CARES? Nothing in the preview I care about.

Awww, what? There was so much of Big Ol' Mister Eko in there! How could you not love that??

Yay! We have Sawyer back finally! ;-D I look forward to actual classic!castaway interations now. Skate! J/S! With talking! And maybe some more touching and bantering and jealousy. And haircuts!

Oh yeah, I missed Snarky!Sawyer soooo much. He's been getting nothing but abuse so far this season. I still say he owes certain characters a smackdown! ;-D

..you had a "bad" Ken doll?? There's a story in here, and I want to hear it!
See -- he was not quite this model, but close. Tell me that's not EVIL!

Yeah, I love me some Mr. Eko but I just want more OT3 action!! Why must we have new storylines about other characters again?

...Okay, that is one scary-ass Ken doll. Did you actively think of him as "bad" when you were playing with him as a kid and make him do mean things to the other dolls, or is this just hindsight talking? Inquiring minds want to know.

Really fucked-up Skate where Kate is drawn to Sawyer in spite of herself (and it's a coin toss as to whether she's seeing herself as her mother or as Wayne) and almost, almost being able to see the real Sawyer?

Oh, yeah. This episode did manage to win me over to J/K as a long-term het ship, but that would be so incredibly hot.

See, but that's where we all were with Skate (without the specific Wayne bit) back in fall of 2004, don't you think? She's attracted to Sawyer but she sees the bad aspects of herself or someone she had a fucked-up relationship with in him, so she's kept her distance. Since fanon can devote months and months to our characters' psyches and interactions, as opposed to, literally just one day out of the year if you complile all the eps, then no wonder we're so much farther ahead than the show itself.

Despite my love for both Jack and Kate, they're both so much more interesting with Sawyer. Part of that is the red-hot walking sex and acting dynamo that is Josh Holloway. Jack and Kate on their own have seemed so ... inevitable. And bland. But that was one hot kiss. And they both *are* incredibly fucked up. Which always makes things more interesting. And they give us that kiss and then throw them both in different directions. Did she kiss him out of desire of frustration, you think? And I so loved Jack chopping the Wood of Sexual Frustration. ;-D

Oh, and for the first time in weeks Charlie was well-meaning and sweet if not terribly useful, rather than a raging asshole who needed to be clubbed in the head. I guess I owe the writers a thanks for that.

ITA. That was such a welcome relief.

And for the second week in a row, Michael wasn't going on and on about Walt but actually focusing on the bigger picture. Not to deny his loss or anything but ye gods. Dramatically, we need some variety, you know. And his whining just made me sympathize with him less and less.

There were so many great things in this episode...and really, Kate's backstory didn't break the movement of the show the way Ana's did last week. Not that I really buy the motivation...but that's neither here nor there. There was hot boxer-clad Sawyer being pushed back onto bed by Jack!

Is there anyone who DIDN'T know that Eko would have the missing footage? Are you just saying that, or did you really know? Because that shocked me and had me literally bouncing around during the commercial.
halfdutch

Kate's backstory was more "Oh, OK," than, "OMG, wow!" I mean, I was surprised that Wayne was her real dad, because how fucked up is that? I also was surprised to see that her "dad" was alive. I'd always assumed he'd be dead. I'm prepared to move on and get on with the show. It didn't make or break her character for me.

But mmm, yeah, take a look at those caps. Sawyer's boxers were almost coming off! Ya think maybe Jack lent him a pair since he usually doesn't wear them himself? LOL.

Really? No, I absolutely knew that Eko would have the missing footage. No surprise there at all, except at how long they dragged it out before he produced it. Because why keep mentioning it being missing if it's not going to turn up? And we'd seen the book was hollow before, hadn't we? Or I'd just assumed it because people are *always* hollowing books and hiding guns and whatnot in them. I never assume a book is just a book on TV anymore. ;-D

Never wondered about the book...didn't really catch that. I think I was still stuck on the OMGWTF?GLASSEYE??? :P I simply adored how Eko did the reveal, and Locke's face...oh, LOVE! I think I would follow those two around like a puppy or Charlie or something.

Bwaha! No, you weren't alone. There were also lots of accidents involving Barbie's townhouse, sports car and cataraman. ;-D

Jack's animal. Hmmm. Something very stubborn! LOL.

The Jack/Sawyer was so strong last night my friend who has never read a piece of slash in her life commented today that she thinks Jack has a crush on Sawyer.

Awwww. That's great! Spread the slash love!

And yes, hiatuses suck.

Veronica Mars episode was much much better but at least Sawyer is awake. He was sorely missed.

The jackass/kate scene was sparless as usual. they have such a father/daughter relationship , i fail to see why the writers insist on making them THE couple of the show. the actors don't sell it, neither does the writing, can't they get a hint ?

oh well, i know i'll stop watching that show the very second they break Kate and Sawyer apart.

i still owe you a header but honestly it's hard to come up with something when you're more in the slash pairing than the traditional K/S.
it's not a reproach , i'm just explaining why nothing has come yet.

I liked this ep. Something shippy for everyone! Great to see Sawyer up again and the chemistry between him and Kate flowing again, for however long. No one on TV is ever allowed to stay together, so you're right, we should enjoy it while we can.

And I'll let you off the hook for a new header. Don't worry about it! ;-D
