Lost: Confirmed Dead

Shoot: My TiVo just rebooted -- in the middle of (well, 3/4 into) Lost, so I missed a 5-10 minute chunk. Can anyone fill me in?
And yes, I'm using a Juliet icon. Hell must have frozen over, yes? ;)


Okay, I missed a chunk before Sawyer was holding a gun to Ben's head: Did Ben try to shoot Charlotte? What happened right before that? THANK YOU!

And this is kind of a "stay tuned" ep. Hard to comment on where things stand, except that they seem to not have bothered to hire any hotties this round, LOL.

And look, canon (almost) Sayid/Juliet! It's true, she no longer bugs me. :) HALLELUJAH!

I guess I don't have much else to say except that Sawyer looked hot. Sayid looked hot (stroking the helicopter stickshift, hello!) and ... I guess that's it. See you next week!)

Did Ben try to shoot Charlotte?

He actually shot her. Twice. Fortunately, she had on a bulletproof vest. How convenient!

Aha, that is very convenient! She was definitely the best at playing innocent. Thanks for filling me in!

He did shoot her, she had a vest on though, don't know why, but she did.

Sawyer did look hot and Jack too, and Jeremy Davies, I adore him, he's really found his nitch in roles huh?

Thank you, darlin'.

Jeremy Davies -- where's he been since Saving Private Ryan? That was a whole 10 years ago, right?

Juliet doesn't bug you anymore? Weird. She did have a different facial expression, though, when they saw the helicopter.

No hotties on the boat...sad but true.

Writing her in fic definitely helped! And I used to LOVE Elizabeth Mitchell, pre-Lost and then Lost changed all that. But so far so good, this season! I think I got really tired of the "Ooh, she's evil. Ooh, she's not!" mystery they were trying to have going on last season. And I quite liked her and Sayid being on the same page and teaming up to save Jack.

And yeah, not a looker in the boat bunch! LOL.

Face it: everyone who was already on the island was kind of a righteous badass this week :P

I think I liked this ep because it was a stay tuned kind of thing. Sometimes, I swear to God I avoid watching Lost because it gives me heartburn. A week where plot moves, lots of different people and stories usefully fill up the time, and I don't have to fear for anybody's life is a good week, for me. We need well-done filler from time to time, I think. :)

So true. Lost can be incredibly frustrating at times. This one covered a lot of new ground, established some new alliances (Sayid/Juliet!), underlined some existing tensions and introduced a whole lot of WTF. At this point, I'm kind of glad for backstories that give us new information. The retreads for existing characters (much as I love most of them) were getting stale. So in that sense, I don't mind the newbies ... yet!

Damn TiVos! What the hell, man.

Yay Juliet icon! Welcome to the group of those who like her (or is like too strong? cause like is different than no longer bugs me). I loved that they teamed up to go save Jack. I feel like Sayid and Juliet have totally found common ground, it's awesome. I'm going to be re-watching the scene where Jack makes her giggle over again, methinks, cause it makes me smile. :)

Darn TiVo!

I think ... I think I like Juliet! I'm no longer seized with the urge to change the channel when she's on, LOL. And I was definitely "YAY!" when she teamed up with Sayid. I used to love EM, btw, pre-Lost but Juliet just rubbed me the wrong way so severely that it erased all my EM love. Which appears to be slipping back.

Don't know if I can get behind her with Jack just yet but ... maybe!

An excuse to use my Juliet icon in your journal? Well I never! I totally thought of you during that scene. I still need to read that!

Bad Tivo! It looks like you were sufficiently filled in though.

Hmm, I kinda think all the boat folk were hot...Well, maybe not the would be pilot...

Hee, who knew that Sayid/Juliet would be nearly canon! And without all the trouble I went to in fic, LOL.

And yep, thanks to my flist, I appear to be fully caught up.

And huh. I didn't find any of the newbies remotely hot! I mean, Dan is kind of interesting but I wouldn't say hot.

I think you're right in saying that this was a sort of "filler" episode but Lost has so many gaps that I always enjoy when they fill up some!

I now wonder how long after the crash they "found" the wreckage...

Loved Sayid (and Juliet) saving the day! I agree... everyone looked hot, Sayid (the helicopter must be happy), Sawyer, and Jack!
Jack's awkward wink and his even more awkward explanation, made me lol. :)

Yeah, a filler ep is okay. And Everyone looked hot, but the poor newbies!

Jack is so cute when he's trying to be sly. ;)

I'm not ready to throw my arms around Juliet yet but her lack of smirking and compotence with Sayid this season has me warming up. See, if I met Miles on the street, I would find him hot but he pales in comparison with the abundance of hotness already on Craphole Island.
halfdutch
Feb. 8th, 2008 07:05 pm (UTC)
Writing her in fic definitely helped and also ridding us of the mystery of whether she's evil or not helps a lot, too. And her actually being helpful! And if Sayid approves...? LOL.

Miles doesn't appeal to me at all but hey, more for you!

I loved the Sayid/Juliet scenes!They're good together!:)

except that they seem to not have bothered to hire any hotties this round, LOL.
We do remember how almost all new characters end on this island,right?So,why bother?;)

They make a good team! :)

And yeah, why bother hiring good looking actors when the fans are going to hate them and they're just going to get bumped off? LOL.

ah damn, that's annoying! *kicks your Tivo*

did you miss the flashback of the helicopter pilot? looking at coverage of the footage of the found plane in the ditch, he called Oceanic and said the pilot was not the pilot (his ring and all, knew him) and he was supposed to fly oceanic 815. we then see him on the island, he sees a cow, his phone is broken so he shoots a flare gun.

charlotte sees it and says that's one of my partners, we should go see. Of course the Locke team are not that thrilled. charlotte wonders what is wrong with them, they are there to rescue them but Locke says to go forward as planned. She decides to leave them (Locke wants her to follow) then she's shot twice, by Ben, who took the gun from Karl. Sawyer jumps on Ben to beat him up. Charlotte who appeared dead comes back to her senses, she had a kevlar vest.

Jack and all find the pilot, frank, who says they've been hit by lightning, he shows them the chopper that is perfectly fine.

mmm. before the Sawyer holds a gun to Ben, there is also a flashback of creepy black dude from last week who shows the team to Naomi, who's job was to get them to the island and out securely as everyone was selected for special purposes. she's skeptic. creepy dude says there were no survivors.

on island, Sayid is stroking the helicopter lovingly but saying it will be okay to fly. Miles wants the phone, Jack wants to know what they are here for. Miles want to talk to someone who can't come to the phone, who will call back.they got Naomi's corpse near the chopper and Dan wants to bring her to the boat but Miles and Frank say it's not the time to do so, that they need to go to the boat to fuel and come back. Frank learns Juliet's name, and since he knows she is not on the plane (knows the manifest), miles freaks out and tells them there are there for Ben (complete with picture)


that is probably WAY more info that you needed, but I had the episode with me ;)

Feb. 8th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC)
Yay! Thanks so much for all that. I totally missed Frank's flashback. I came back in when Matthew (creepy black dude) is giving Naomi her assignment.

And hee, Sayid and the helicopter FTW!

Juliet will stop bugging me when she shows some remorse for what she's done (and apparently not tried to avoid doing). Although maybe that's just a case of the writing bugging me... damn. I don't think she and Sayid would make a good canon couple, but the writers might disagree with me there too. Damn.

Yeah, "meh" episode all around. Here's hoping for better next week...
halfdutch
Feb. 8th, 2008 07:17 pm (UTC)
No one ever shows remorse on this show! Like Locke? Gah, I just wish Ben had shot him somewhere other than his kidney! Yeah, I'd blame the writers. They're always marching off to the next thing and rarely continuing any kind of throughline for characters.

Yeah, not the best ep ever but it didn't make me throw things at the TV. Except when my TiVo cut out!

The Sayid/Juliet is kinda good. They had such a nice scene! And anyway yes, Ben shot Charlotte but I think she had some salvage jacket or something like that. Sawyer looked kinda hot and Sayid/Helicopter, uhm, OTP?

Thanks for the update, hon.

Sayid/Juliet -- almost canon. Who knew? LOL. :) And Sayid really liked that helicopter!

It JUST hit me yesterday that the chick who plays Charlotte is the chick from Justice! With a British accent! And the creepy dude who sent Naomi out with the group is Det. Basil from Oz. :)

Ha! I hit IMDB that night to look her up and of course, that's where I knew her from. And most of my flist i.d.'d that dude from Oz right away. And hey, thought you'd stopped watching Lost!
