Lost: The Beginning of the End



OH NO THEY DIDN'T. They did NOT just split up Jack and Sawyer. AGAIN. They delight in tormenting us! *cries* Although, of course, Sawyer and Sayid wrestling Jack away from Locke was very nice.

Okay, other than that one fannish complaint, an excellent ep. Like good fanfic! Mysterious, moving ... SO GOOD TO SEE EVERYONE AGAIN.

Sayid throwing the gun to Sawyer! (Who never gets a good night's rest. *wink*)

CHARLIE!!!! (I had heard he was making a cameo but I still flailed.) The afterlife has been good to him, as it has been to Boone. Clearly, there are hairdressers in Craphole Island heaven!

AND WTF, the Oceanic Six? So that's Jack, Kate, Hurley and whoever was in the coffin. AND? AND......? And Jack was fine at first, going back to practice medicine, just like we were all sure he would! Ohhhhhh. I am anxious to see what happens.

I guess I don't have much to add at this point, except that for once I actually enjoyed Ben being snarky and Juliet didn't bother me a bit. The reaction to Charlie's death was more than I expected. Damn straight, they better make his death count! Okay, off to check in with everyone else.

YES! I loved it! Idk, I expected so little, maybe that's why I was so totally impressed. I thought it could be like S3 again, but this actually was an awesome ep. It had everyone in it and it dealt with Charlie's death in a satisfying way (that's a 1st, that they've actually shown realistic reactions to death!) and it made me want to watch future eps rather than dreading them.

I know, it's a bummer about Jack and Sawyer, but eh, what do you expect? That relationship will only ever have a life in fic, the writers don't acknowledge its power in the least (even on a platonic level), so it's no big for them to split the leads, and it probably makes sense in terms of maintaining the interest of the fans who, let's face it, are mostly not slashers. Anyway, Hurley ended up going back, so obviously somehow the groups got mixed up again.

Plus, I like it that Sawyer stayed because that's what Charlie wanted and because Hurley stayed.

The Oceanic Six! WHO ARE THEY???

True, it was good of Sawyer to go to protect Claire and all. Maybe they are going to ship him with her. I rather fear it'll be Juliet. I'm okay with her at the mo, but I don't think I could get behind her and Sawyer! (Also, pattern much, if he only ever gets people who are interested in Jack first?)

Anyway, I really, really enjoyed it! Everything that's good about Lost. Some quibbles, yes, but overall, Lost is back, baybee!

Fic writing can re-commence, yes? :)

Yeah, what is it about dying on this show that suddenly makes guys get hotter? That haircut...yummy.

I don't see why they have to keep splitting Jack and Sawyer up ALL THE TIME. I mean, this is the worst split ever. It's like they don't want us slashing them so purposely try to make it difficult.

Jack, Jack, Jack...soooooooo fine.

I kinda wish I didn't know who the Oceanic 6 are so I could be all intrigued like you and Z. Damn spoilers!

Feb. 1st, 2008 06:42 am (UTC)
OH! I didn't know those spoilers were out there. I don't wanna know!! It does seem like maybe those aren't the only ones alive and there are still some folks left back on the island. Gah, who knows? And yeah, don't wanna know, yet!

They do not make it easy for us girls who ship Jack and Sawyer but this way they can really, really pine for each other? Or, you know, we can stick to our fave AUs!

Hey, I meant to mention, didn't Jack's hair look a little reddish in that gym scene? He probably filmed that concurrently with "We Are Marshall." :)

Let's just play that on an endless loop, shall we? Along with, say, the guns-drawn, wet and shirtless boarding of Desmond's boat scene?

I agree on every point... the separation (NOOOO), the wrestling (yess!), the fact that the whole cast was there and they were reunited, if only for a few seconds.

Charlie looked good! And the Oceanic 6 thing is hurting my brain. I'm SO worried about Sawyer, you have no idea.

I liked this episode, I didn't think it was totally fantastic though, but that's just me, I like Hurley, I sort of wish it was someone else's view point though, but I can totally understand why they did that and appreciate what they are going for.

They totally split them up again..and you know this is going to be so good, just from what Hurley said about how they should have gone with Locke.

Jack's already back to drinking..oh Jack..that slippery slope is getting mighty mighty slick..and we all know where it leads you.

I've liked the Hurley eps for the most part. The real soulsucking ones, for me, have been the Michael "endless custody battle" ones and the recent Jin/Sun love triangle ones. SNOOZE!

Jack's facade is going to crack all too soon, poor guy. But he looks very good in the meantime!

Poor Jack and Sawyer. I mean did they even make eye contact? Oh well, I hope this leads to another happy music reunion at some point, sooner rather than later.

AND WTF, the Oceanic Six? So that's Jack, Kate, Hurley and whoever was in the coffin.

I know! I can't pick just three more! Does Charlie's appearance imply Claire did or did not get off? Whoever was in that coffin might not be part of the six. I still think it's Michael but we probably won't find out for two more years. Though it's strange to feel we will find out more in six days.
halfdutch
Feb. 2nd, 2008 06:39 am (UTC)
We can only hope for a happy J/S hugging montage soon! In the meantime, well, there's always fic.

I kind of think Claire will survive, but who knows? Aaron doesn't count, obv. Michael mabye was in the coffin, true... who's to say? I'm really not looking forward to him turning up again. *sigh*

And some people are already spoiled about who the Oceanic Six are -- I wonder if that means we'll find out soon in canon or whether that's a BIG spoiler that just happened to leak. But I don't want to know yet!

"Although, of course, Sawyer and Sayid wrestling Jack away from Locke was very nice."

AMEN. I had to stop and think about who I was supposed to be shipping there. ;)

"AND WTF, the Oceanic Six? So that's Jack, Kate, Hurley and whoever was in the coffin. AND? AND......?"

Oooh, you think it's an Oceanic person in the coffin? I dunno... "neither family nor friend" tells me that it probably wasn't someone who crashed with them. I would think even Locke would be considered a 'friend' to Jack, though the term would be used very loosely. I figured it was Benry, even though that seems obvious, but because if Jack wanted to get back to the island, he's the only person I can think of that would be able to get him back there, and losing him would be their last chance. Either that or we haven't met the coffin person yet. *shrug*

Hee I have just the icon for the situation! :)

I don't know who's in the coffin. Could be Michael (in which case, he'd very likely be one of the Oceanic Six) or Ben, who might not be. Then again, it could be that those who end up back in the real world don't tally with who was actually on Flight 815 and it's just a convenient media tag. Now, though, (since I'm getting thinky) it seems like the lie is about the existence of the island at all, or at least the nature of it, and so maybe it's an easier lie to say they were all on board that plane? (Oops, that got long and rambly.)

And yes, it's possible we haven't met Mr. Coffin yet!

Jack and Sawyer will always be separated. It is their lot it life. Ha!

Ep. was okay, but I didn't find it thrilling. I think I've been spoiled too much. Which I want to change, but I just can't quit the spoilers!!! I've already seen ep2, so now what do I have to look forward to next week. But it was nice to just have a new episode! Guh! that hiatus was horrible.
halfdutch
Feb. 4th, 2008 05:07 am (UTC)
Ahh, it probably was more exciting to us unspoiled folks. The hiatus was indeed horrible. It's so good to have it back (and not suck) but the eps will be all gone before we know it. Unless these rumblings of a strike deal are true!

As someone spoiled, I kept thinking all this week: Jawyer fans are going to be PISSED. And I was right. And yes, I'm annoyed with it too.

But the Sawyer/Sayid/Jack thing was lovely. Had me giggling.

Feb. 4th, 2008 05:08 am (UTC)
Oh, well, we should be used to it by now. *sigh* And last season did reignite the Sawyer/Sayid so I'm always opening to new pairings. And we'll always have our AUs!

Like, we can build a whole 'verse just from the Jack/Sawyer/Sayid tussling!

Oh, that was a big WTF moment that would have been great if I hadn't read spoilers last fall (I've since quit the habit). My lips are sealed.

OH NO THEY DIDN'T. They did NOT just split up Jack and Sawyer. AGAIN. But did you notice how Sawyer was the one who wanted to call Jack on the walkie to tell him Desmond's news? And I loved big brother Sawyer comforting Hurley.

Feb. 4th, 2008 05:39 am (UTC)
Ahh, I'm glad I wasn't spoiled, then! All I knew was that it was a Hurley ep! (I remember hearing way back when it would be a Sawyer ep, but no complaints.)

Awww, Sawyer and Jack simply cannot be kept apart! Not if we can help it, anyway!

I personally think Ben wants to mindfuck Locke or something. Anyway, I pretty much agree with everything. And there needed to be more Desmond, anyway.

The splitting is BAD. But that wrestle scene totally made up for it. The throwing the gun scene was great, Charlie ruled and I want to go in Craphole Island Heaven. Or better, can Charlie and Boone show up together and bring Sawyer in some trip à là Locke? Please?

There, there. Don't cry. As I told zelda_zee, Sawyer could get a snakebite on his penis at any time, and it would require medical attention and Jack's doctor magic.

I think Juliet's parents must be two of them. Alex's biodaddy is presumably a third.

I'm guessing Sun (pregnancy fears), Rose, and Bernard (coffin).

Snakebite on his penis! *snerk* I've read a mosquito-bite fic, but not snakebite! :) Whatever it takes!

I got the feeling Mr. Coffin is someone everyone else hated, like Michael or Ben. Or perhaps someone we haven't even met yet.

AND WTF, the Oceanic Six?

Biggest "WHAAAAAAAT?" moment of the episode for me, totally. And considering it was Hurley's crazy-a-go-go time, that's saying something.

I really wonder what's gonna go down with Sawyer being with Locke's people. I mean, really. Because I never got the idea that he trusted or liked that guy much, and with the exception of I think Hurley and Claire anyone Sawyer's every really had a good rooting connection to is on the other side :/

The afterlife has been good to him, as it has been to Boone.

I know!! It almost makes you want to wish people would die, just so they could show up all pretty.

Sawyer is NOT going to be happy with Team Locke. I think he's there to a) save his own skin and b) protect the wimmenfolk and er, c) make his boyfriends jealous?
