OMG, Sawyer and Jack are back together!! REUNITED! At long fucking last. It's not much, but I'll take it...
And now onto the rest of the show (ahem): I should probably make this more coherent but I'm sure you're all talked out about the ep by now.
Oh look, the Oceanic chick is Michelle Forbes! I heart her! And now she's been on *every* genre/cult show ever!
Augh. That homecoming. Margo, glad to see Jack? *tears up* Hurley seeing that Sayid has no one and drawing him in to meet his family. And no one's there for Kate... that's been ficced so many times but I always pictured Sawyer being there, too. :-/ I still can't believe he's stuck back on the island. When are we going to see that?
*talks to the TV* Sawyer, go follow Jack, now! Yes? YES! YES!
Nadia? Oh! Oh, Sayid! You have no idea what's coming.
(Back on the island): Go, Sayid, save the day!
And OF COURSE Jack and Kate (and Sawyer) just ran after certain death.
Oh, Ben. I kinda forgot he existed. :-/ (Cuz, you know, when we were imagining most rescue scenarios back in the day, Ben was *not* part of it!) Haven't we had enough fucking Ben for one season?!
Oh, can we trust Daniel...? I would say, not so much. I really doubt he's coming back.
Dream team - Jack, Sawyer, Sayid to be reunited?! Oh, and Kate too. Eh, can't win them all! (Although I guess I should be happy that she's not being shuttled aside to "Take care of the baby.")
YES, kickass Sun is back!
Awww, happy Hurley birthday party. And the car's fixed up! :)And ahh, the numbers, for everyone who's been complaining we haven't seen them in a while. (Me, I'm looooong over them!)
And I'm so, so, SO over the Locke & Ben show.
Oh, Desmond is asking about his boyfriend, Sayid! (But worried that he's now getting it on with Jack!)
Jack is killing me at his Dad's memorial service. :-( And oh God, THIS is how he finds out about Aaron being his nephew! And no one else can know since it's "Kate's baby." And Claire's mother doesn't know it's her grandson. GAH! Claire and Jack never got to be brother and sister! ;_;
Oh crap, that's a lot of C4!
Wait, 2 weeks til the season finale?!! And it's looking like Sun and Jin will be that epic kiss, yes?
Oh, and I've come to a (really late and rather obvious) conclusion regarding Grey's Anatomy vs. Lost: Meredith is not Kate. She's Jack!
C'mon: The impossible-to-live-up-to doctor parent (who was shitty at parenting and basically told their kid, "You're not ever going to be good enough.") Yeah, GA is more about relationships than Lost is, but we know neither of these two can maintain a relationship to save their lives. They're both eager to sign up for certain death. (Although Jack's got a lot more of that hero/God complex while I agree, Meredith does a lot of feeling sorry for herself and isn't out there trying to save the world.) But mostly, I really sympathize with both of them. Fandom (and the world at large) seems to hate both Meredith and Jack but dammit, I love them and their very human failings. They feel like real people to me, very, very fucked-up, flawed people, but genuine, caring people all the same.
So, hate on them all you want. I still need 'em and love 'em.
