Lost ...

Wow. As foxxcub said, "Our fandom has changed."

I didn't expect to cry over Boone! But Matthew Fox just ... pardon me while I go all speechless about his acting in this episode. I don't really have any words. I love Jack in savior mode. This was a totally edge-of-seat episode for me. Much crying.

And my brief Sawyer note: Loved him beaming at the baby, helping Kate without asking why, and of course, calling Claire "Mamacita."

But really, it was all about Jack. Foxy deserves an Emmy.

And Ian ... man, what a way to go out. These last two eps really made me like Boone more than ever. Of course, that means they had to kill him off. The promos were right - but even as I was watching, I kept thinking, "No, it can't be ..." But it was. I knew for sure when Jack was going to amputate his leg. And I totally lost it. God, that was rough. Actually, I knew when he started talking cryptically about the hatch. No way he could live after that.

I love Jack for trying so hard, even when it was totally pointless. Others have said it better than me. Sniff. The more I think about it, the sadder it gets.

ETA: You notice in the flashbacks how his bride-to-be never actually said she loved him? Was she just grateful to the doctor who "fixed" her?

2nd ETA: Crap. I just watched the end again. I only wanted to see the promo for the next ep again but I got sucked in. And now my eyes are really puffy.

OT: I wrote a J/S smut fic yesterday for the JKS ficathon but I don't know when it will seem appropriate to post. Can't imagine anyone's in the mood to read it now.

OK if I post tomorrow? My beta was too sad to read it today. :-(

Man. What a downer.

I never even really liked Boone but damn. I didn't cry over him dying, though! Oddly enough, I got teary with the baby stuff (Kate with the "this is all our baby" or something, and Sawyer's adorable beaming at the baby. I'm such a Sawyer fangirl now!) and with Shannon crying over Boone's body, 'cause how could you not cry at that?!

And, yeah, Matthew Fox/Jack was so great in this, despite the fact that he seriously grossed me out with the chest-puncturing and talk-of-amputation (and that I was a little disappointed with the flashbacks)?!

[Btw, because I'm not as cerebral as some others, he went through with the marriage? I was expecting another flashback or something to explain what happened after that 'cause...? I suppose that if he's still married it would make for some interesting internal dialogue about whether or not he should be with Kate ("letting go" of his "committment" to the wife he left behind).]

I was also really impressed with Sun in this episode. Jin, too.

Even though it was the saddest episode I’ve seen, I still thought it was really good and, for whatever reason, the survivors all seem kinda like a full-fledged family to me now because of it.

Hey. Downer indeed.

I cried a lot. Not as much as some, I think, but the horror of Boone's injuries and Jack trying so damn hard to the point of almost killing himself is what got me. That and Matthew Fox's fantastic acting. When he cries, I cry.

The "letting go" regarding the marriage I don't quite get. It did seem like he was going to leave her at the altar, but then maybe they figured we'd think that (and flashback to Party of Five) so they faked us out there. But it didn't really make sense as shown.

I like how they pulled together. Looks like that won't last long though. 3 weeks off! Argh!

I'm still all 'wah!'

But post the smut, it will be a nice distraction and help hold us over while we wait three months for new eps.

Thanks. I think we may need that hiatus to recuperate. The fic will likely go up tonight.

And my brief Sawyer note: Loved him beaming at the baby

YES! I noticed that, so cute; so human!

It was so sweet. The camera lingered on him quite a bit, which I loved. I don't see how anyone could still dislike Sawyer at this point. Looks like he's getting darker again in upcoming eps.

Yes, yes, YES on Matthew Fox. He murdered me dead.

There needs to be an AU fic where Boone survives but the leg has to be cut off, anyway, just because I want to see the show universe actually dealing with that.

And small yes on Sawyer beaming at the baby. It was very sweet, very natural moment.

Foxy is just the best at emotional scenes. Wow. I love him more than ever.

That sounds like a good AU.

Aw, for paternal Sawyer moment. Thanks for that ray of sunshine there, JJ. And Claire's smile was amazingly sweet too.

You already know my thoughts on this.

Foxy + angst + tears/blood = DEATH (to me)

I know! So raw. He really looked like he was going to collapse after the second blood transfusion. (And now I'm getting to the point where I want fic where someone - not Kate! - comforts him. Could be Sawyer. Could be Sun. Although I don't get any sense of shippiness between those two, unlike everyone else, I guess.)

uberaeryn just said she wants to do a Sawyer-comforts Jack fic, and you know what that means.....

*is dead again*

Wow. That's going to be amazing.
