Ummmm.....wow. That was pretty intense. I discovered tonight that I can handle a lot of things, but one thing I most definitely can NOT handle is Hugo "Hurley" Reyes breaking down into grief-filled sobs.
R.I.P. Sayid Jarrah. I will always remember you for your wicked killer-breakdance moves, your incredibly horrible luck with women, and your amazing ability to look at a seemingly hopeless mess of wires and various electrical components and say, "Yes...I can fix that. Do you by chance have half a coconut and some string?"
R.I.P. Jin and Sun Kwon. Even though the end of your love story was botched something awful, your growth as a couple has been a joy to watch. Your daughter will miss you, and so will we. Here's hoping for a much happier ending in the Sideways timeline.
R.IP.....Frank Lapidus? Hope you got out of that sub, Chesty. If not, we will remember you for your mad piloting skillz, your obvious unrequited crush on Sun, and one of my favorite moments of the series so far: "We're not going to Guam, are we?"
Well, I got at least one thing right this season...Smokey was definitely trying to get them all together in one place so that he could kill them all. I think he still can't leave, as long as there is a Candidate standing, and I think he's trying to kill them all before one of them can assume the "Jacob" role....but I think he's too late. Jack is The One.
I REALLY thought that Locke was going to remember everything when Jack echoed his line back to him: "I wish you believed me". It definitely triggered SOMETHING, but I was kind of hoping for more. Jack is getting closer and closer to putting it all together, and I think he just needs a "little push".
I will get into MUCH more (Sayid's redemption, Claire's continuing abandonment issues, Sideways John Locke's guilt trip, and much much more) when the full recap goes up in a few days.
In the meantime...has anybody seen a small Asian man, a little nervous looking dude with bug eyes, and a strikingly handsome guy rocking some serious guyliner?
