When I was a little girl I watched this movie called Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend. It was about dinosaurs and it did not have a happy ending. To my knowledge I can't tell you anything about the movie except my reaction to it. I bawled. The hiccuping, sobbing kind of bawling. To which I then got mad. Mad at my over the top outburst in front of my family, embarrassed to have that kind of reaction to a fictional movie, and upset that whatever sad thing had just occurred had to occur, in reality or not.
So that happened again last night, friends. LOST has made me cry before. In Season 1, when Ethan kidnapped Claire and Charlie and hung Charlie in a tree and it looked like he was dead? Cried. In Season 3, when Charlie really does die, warning Desmond that it was NOT PENNY'S BOAT? Cried. In Season 4, when Desmond and Penny share their infamous phone call and declare their undying love? Cried, big time. In Season 5, Juliet's death scene (and it's pretty much rehashing in the season 6 opener) and mostly James' reaction to it? Cried cried cried. But last night? Last night was full on, seven year old version of the ugly cry. And just as I had composed myself, Hurley starts sobbing on the beach and I start in all over again.
Darlton seriously knows how to cram a lot of death into not a lot of space, don't they?
Sayid! You redeemed yourself. And before we had a chance to love you again, you're gone!!! I love, love, love that Sayid died the selfless hero, the man he had been from day one of LOST. So Desmond did break whatever Zombie hold UnLocke had on Sayid. "Because it's going to be you, Jack." Great last line, ever.
Frank. I'm pretty sure you're a goner. You shall be missed, if only for your incredibly awesome season 5 line, "We're not going to Guam, are we?". Sorry you had to go like that.
Jin and Sun. Oh Jin and Sun. For two seasons we've been waiting for your reunion. How incredibly sad it was so short lived. It was a little Titanic-esque, but it was still quite beautiful and sad, and why didn't Sun tell Jin to go so that Ji-Yeon wouldn't be an orphan!
Did anyone else half expect UnLocke to turn and shoot Claire? I kinda thought he would. I was so glad (and at the same time so sad) to see that Sayid had come back from the dark side, so I hope maybe that Claire will have a similar redemption moment. Probably with her dying breath, but a redemption moment nonetheless.
And how do we manage to lose four characters but none of them was the one who was shot in the chest? Can Kate not be killed? And can we settle once and for all that Kate+Jack=LOVE forever, considering that he was the one she was all worried about on the beach, not an unconscious, injured Sawyer? Please, sideways world, please, please, please give me a Sawyer and Juliet reunion! Sawyer needs some love too.
In speculation news, I've been thinking more and more about Adam and Eve in the caves. For the longest time I thought it would be Jack and Kate. Then I thought maybe Rose and Bernard (still kinda thinking it could be them), then Jin and Sun (but not so much now that their lifeless *sob* bodies are sinking in a submarine). What do ya'll think?
Also, I am really missing team Alpert. Maybe Richard, Ben and Miles can come save our remaining Losties before UnLocke finds some way to get them killed off too. Please hurry next Tuesday!!! Three more episodes left! Now that really makes me ugly cry.
