Lost: He's Our You polls

Did you think Sayid would shoot Ben?

Yes, but then I thought they wouldn't go there
No, that was a total shocker!
Yes, absolutely!

Is Ben dead?


If Sayid hasn't shot Ben:

Ben wouldn't have become an evil mastermind
The fabric of time and space would fall apart
Everything would have unfolded exactly the same
I would have been very disappointed!

Best scene:

Sayid has daddy issues too!
Sayid drinks!
Sawyer + Sayid
Hurley tells Kate about Sawyer & Juliet
Sawyer tells Juliet nothing has changed
Sayid about to take off those boots
Ben helps Sayid escape
Sayid shoots Ben!

What would you do with Sayid, if you were Sawyer?

Exactly what he did, play for time, etc.
Let him go
Hot jail cell sex, then let him go
Ask Richard to keep him safe
Not a thing. What could he do?
Give him a list of people to shoot, while he's at it
Disguise him in drag, ushering in wacky Bosom Buddies plot line

What happens to Sayid now?

He has no choice but to join the Hostiles
As long as it involves Richard, I'm a happy fangirl
The island now has two crazy gun-toting fugitives
Stows away on the next outgoing sub
More sessions with Oldham

I know Oldham from:

Blade Runner
True Blood
Somewhere else

Why did Kate come back?

For Sawyer
Because Jack asked her to
To find Claire
Just to mess with us
Anything to get away from Aaron!

Burning questions after this ep:

Apart from YAY!JF SEBASTIAN...

Disguise him in drag, ushering in wacky Bosom Buddies plot line

This = best thing I've read about this ep. until now. *loves*

Ha, thank you! I like to throw in at least one completely silly option, esp. when the ep is so serious and intense!

Burning Question:

After Sawyer and Juliet killed the Others to save...Ethan's mom... Richard showed up at DHARMAville fairly quickly about his missing people. Why weren't the DHARMA people suspicious when they didn't show up for Sayid? That would've played more into the "he's a spy" if they noticed Richard never came for him.

Oh, good point! I don't think that Horace & Co. are all that bright, as Ben's dad pointed out, so that probably didn't occur to them. I would love another Richard + Sawyer convo. With or without Sayid!

My question is based on the assumption that Ben lives. It would be interesting if Sayid did manage to kill him, but they would need like five more seasons just to retell the story of the survivors minus Ben. It makes more sense to me that he lives and remembers Sayid shooting him and that Jack, Hurley, Sawyer, Kate, and Juliet once lived with the Dharma group. And with one season left, we don't have enough episodes to change time that much.

Anyway, my question is what will the Dharma Initiative (Especially Roger Workman) do to Ben when they find out he was the one that set the bus on fire and let Sayid go? I think Sayid played a huge role in what Ben is today, but I'm thinking the consequences kid!Linus faces back home will be dire (Especially since we know he never joins the hostiles and grows into adulthood with Dharma).

Great poll as always. Who knew Richard would become so popular with the fangirls?

That's the big question now, isn't it? Can they change the future? Or the past? I agree there aren't enough episodes to have things unfold too drastically differently.

What's blowing my mind is how this happened before, if this is the first time they went back in the past, that is, how did Ben know to send them all back if they'd never been there in the '70s before?! And did he knowingly send Sayid back to shoot his younger self?

I wonder what will happen to young!Ben... I guess we'll find out!

Zelda is responsible for making me fangirl Richard. I need a Richard icon!

If the show had ten seasons, I'd love to see them start completely over at the 815 crash site and bring back the others like Charlie and Boone and just wipe the slate clean. I don't think we're going in that direction though. Ben living adds a lot to the show anyway, because it means he knew who the 815 survivors were and it adds a twist to his relationship with Sayid. Ben is clearly very patient. That doesn't bode so well for Widmore, Desmond, Penny, and wee Charle. If he hasn't already done something for Alex's death, he will eventually.

I kind of like kid!Linus. He just wanted to be saved. That scene with him and Roger really made me cringe. It would have been completely OOC for Sayid to rescue him or kick Roger's ass, but I hope someone nice and caring steps in when they bring him back to the camp.

And yes, Zelda made me a fangirl as well. She needs an icon that lets the world know she created the Cult of Richard in the Lost fandom!

I actually honestly thought Sawyer was somehow going to try and contact Richard and convince him to take Sayid in :P But then it didn't happen :P And then I thought Richard would be in the van that found Sayid/kid!Ben but it wasn't, it was Jin :P

Even though Sayid has never been amongst my favourite characters and thus found his flashbacks (or whatever they're called these days) rather dull (but I can imagine people having the same with Kate) but I this episode was fucking good.

I was extremely happy about Sawyer telling Juliet nothing would change and how Juliet told Kate to say away (even if she didn't, she meant it that way,obviously) And as much as I love Kate, I wanted to stab her in the arm or whatever when she had that look on her face when Hurley told her that Sawyer and Juliet were together. Hello, earth to Kate? You left, you choose Jack and Sawyer now chose someone that's actually good for him and doesn't only want him to comfort her or to be the one to have sex with when you get scared of a person that loves you as much as you love him.

Anyway, I loved how Hurley worked in the kitchen :D He seemed happier too and I'm glad :D

kid!Ben is rapidly becoming a favourite. I hated how his father treated him, it's even worse than before and yeah, he's scary for sure, but damn, that kid really didn't have a very pretty childhood. "You never bring me any sandwiches" Yeah, Roger, wonder why the son you've been beating and the son who's birthday you keep forgetting never gets you a sandwhich :P

And I was literally in shock when the episode was over. I just sat there, mouth hanging open, staring at the black screen": Sayid actually killed kid!Ben? Not so much the fact as that he shot Ben, because I'm sure the island will course correct and Ben will still be alive in 2007 and perhaps kid!Ben isn't even dead... But the fact that they showed Sayid killing a twelve-year-old :O I was like: WHUT! But that's just me and my feelings about kids getting killed by guns in general so... I mean, I figured he would try to kill him, figured he might actually succeed, because he IS Sayid aferall, just didn't think it would actually happen. If that even makes any sense :P

But yeah, this comment's about the size of a review so I'll stop now :P
