Alex! Oh, damn, poor bachlava! (If, hon, you watched at all!)
So that's how Sayid started to work for Ben! Anyone else do a total doubletake on the first use of the word "wife?"
And I love fierce!protective!Sawyer. Finally he has something to do besides play board games and horseshoes! And hey, who's a Sawyer/Claire shipper, among the writers?
I can't believe how badass Ben is. I think he stole every ounce of Locke's badass mojo. But still, no one is more of a badass than Sayid. Have to admit I laughed when Ben said, "I think that'll do" after Sayid emptied his pistol into that guy. And when Sayid looked up and saw Ben taking his photo. Great moment.
And fuck, Penelope. Wow. Okay, should I be pissed that women really ARE being used as pawns on this show? No daughter or wife is safe! Fuck, it's like Bonanza! Marrying a Cartwright (or Sayid) is a sure death sentence. That man will never be lucky in love.
And shit, I can't believe the body count in the last two eps. I guess they teased the heck out of the "someone will die" for the last ep before hiatus, so they didn't this time, unless I missed it entirely. Because I don't think there's any way Alex is coming back from that.
And we know that Jack will be fine, right?
ETA: Shit. I really liked Alex. I... get that this sets a lot of wheels in motion but, damn. :-/ Will ANYONE be left alive at the end of the series?
ETA: #2 -- So Kate and Sun are immune from the "all women die" curse -- because they have babies to take care of? We don't know yet what's up with Juliet, of course. But unless she's got an infant to mother, she's doomed! And Penelope, better get pregnant, stat!
