Asta 2

Must Be Wednesday



Let me start by saying that was *not* a LITTLE kiss. Little kisses do not include tongue nor pulling away before going back in for more. And why do I think she wasn't thinking about Jack during all this? Sure, it's a cliche, Jack is the guy she thinks she should be with but Sawyer is the one she *really* wants to jump. :) Unfortunately, we seem to be headed for the Love Triangle. Jack bristled at Kate's mention of a "connection" with Sawyer and then there was The Look after Sawyer mentioned their "making out".

Sawyer isn't really Sawyer. I didn't see that coming (and may I say I'm thankful for not reading spoilers). I had a whole other analysis going for him up until that revelation. Regardless, the guy seems to have enough self-hatred that, at best, he wants to be hurt and, at worst, he wants to die. I think he may have been happier had Jack let him bleed to death.

Even with the hotness of the kiss, my OTP is still Charlie and Claire. I just loved all their scenes together. Him bombarding her with reasons why it would be better for her to be in the caves when, in reality, it was all about him missing her and wanting her to join him. And I wonder if part of her realized all this? Claire doesn't seem like a push over so for her to let him start packing up her stuff and then playing along with the imaginary peanut butter makes me think she knows he needs her.

Locke moved back into the creepy territory again. He was coming up with far to many reasons as to why Sawyer is the villian on the island (and some that Sayid should have been highly suspect of) and responsible for all their problems. Was he trying to divert attention from himself? Or is Sawyer a threat to him in some way?

Shannon's not nearly as annoying when she can't breath. Can she have an attack every week?

And for my fellow Star Wars geeks, did anyone else squee a bit at the "Jedi moment"? :-)

No, no they don't. Oh, so hot. While C/C is cute, it's not the firestorm that I see in S/K. Mmmm.
I squeed over the whole episode. Yippeee! Sawyer being a grifter with a heart, Jack punching the hell out of him, the Charlie/Claire imaginary peanut butter, the KISS. I'm not even necessarily a K/S shipper, but that was one sexy kiss. Yowza!

Locke may be creepy, but Angel and I agree. He's magnetic. It's weird.

I'm not necessarily a shipper either, but if the writers want to give us some gratuitous sex, I'm on board with that. ;-)

Locke definitely is the most fascinating character thus far - at least in my opinion. Just when you think you got him figured out, you don't. I was shocked he could so easily set Sawyer up with seemingly no regard for what could happen to him.
The K/S kiss creeps me out. This episode made me hate sawyer still. Now we have some major Satyid moments next week. Can't wait. Also I wish Kate and Jack would just hook up already.
I'm actually liking Sawyer more each week now that we are getting bits of information as to why he is the way he is. AS for Jack and Kate, I think that's going to be dragged out for awhile. I'm not sure Kate even knows who or what she wants now.
Man, I'm so used to being all aboard the squee-train that this total apathy I'm feeling has me all flummoxed.

I'm happy you all are still enjoying the show, though. In fact, I think I find more pleasure in reading my friends list after the show than from actually watching it. =)
Well, I won't berate you for not hopping aboard the squee train this time. ;) I completely understand. It's like when I look at my Flist and see all these folks squeeing over Gilmore Girls. I just don't get it. I've tried watching the show several times and just can't make it to the end of an episode.
I was kinda disappointed by Sawyer's backstory. It felt like a cop-out. I would have been more interested in him if he actually was a total asshole in a previous life, albeit an ambiguous one, but it felt like they were doing everything they could to excuse him. And I have a hard time mustering interest in anything Kate's doing, because for all they're trying to write her edgy, she comes across as unbelievably bland to me. Sayid, on the other hand, is looking more and more interesting. And I thought the Charlie/Claire moments were cute.

I was have a discussion at work with someone regarding Kate. She just couldn't get at all how Kate could seemingly be so uncaring. Kate does come off as rather cold and harsh (and a hypocrite in my opinion when it comes to judging Sawyer). I'm sure somewhere in her mysterious past there is a reason she's so emotionally closed off. But, in the meantime, we're left wondering how the guys seem to find her so damn interesting.

I'm still formulating some thoughts about Sawyer's backstory. I knew for awhile now that the guy was carrying around a lot of self-hatred. At least we see why - he became the man he loathed. But, yeah, in many ways we are still getting a rather simplistic explaination as to his actions.

Not to mention, the hording the inhalers storyline was rather ludicrous. What would be the point in keeping something only one person on the island could use? And did they really think the guy was so selfish and sadistic he sit by and watch a girl die?
Loved Charlie and Claire :) I agree, he just missed her.

Locke is ambiguous again - which makes him much more interesting.

Good for Sun! Never mind her husband, she wanted to help and she did.

Kate is starting to act like Scarlett O'Hara ;) All these suitors, what's a girl to do?

I don't think they're trying to explain away Sawyer's behavior. He still isn't all that sympathetic, in fact he's a bit cowardly - he doesn't want to own up to his own behavior so he wants someone else to punish him. At least Sayid owns up to what he felt was a failure and wants to do something about it, come back from it.

Sounds a little bit like a certain Vampire we know and love. ;)

I'm very interested in seeing Sayid's backstory. He seems, at heart, a good man but one who apparently has had to do many horrible things in his past. Perhaps that is why he is so single minded in finding a way for them off the island - he's trying to atone for events in his past.



I enjoyed the whole episode. As always. And I have to say that I didn't expect Sawyer's background story to end up the way it did. Its nice to know he has a heart but that doesn't actually make him a good guy. He's nice and ambiguous with a chance a redemption - just he way I like them. And he was naked alot. ;)

Charlie and Claire are so cute togther. I'm interested in learning her backstory. How did she manage to get on a plane 8 months pregnant, for example?

I agree wholeheartedly that Shannon is much less annoying when she is robbed of oxygen. I guess we can be glad they didn't find the inhalers. And Ian Somerhalder's eyes are hypnotic. I want to look at him some more. Maybe without a shirt.

I have a question I have to pose: Why do a full one third of the male characters we have knowledge of seem to be interested in Kate? Sure she's pretty and all but aren't there other women on this island? Its not like she's the only one, yet she seems to have captured the fancy of Jack, Sawyer and Sayid. Doesn't seem quite fair.

*The above calculation is based on the character count of nine: Jack, Charlie, Sayid, Sawyer, Boone, Hurley, Michael, Jin, and Locke.

That seems to be THE mystery. Who cares how they survived the plane breaking up at 40,000 feet!

Well, Shannon we've established is annoying. Other than her brother who can stand to be around her longer than five minutes? Sun's married with a possibly psycho husband. Chloe's pregnant and, stranded on a desert island with practically no hope of rescue or not, most guy's don't want to deal with that baggage. That leave's Kate - the lucky loser. ;p
I enjoyed the whole show. Not shipping anyone because I find Kate just a touch annoying and I'm not in to slash. ;P And what *is* the deal with her being "the" woman? She can't be the only youngish woman in the island.

Glad Sun openely defied her husband to help Shannon. Who should have the occassional attack as she is definitely not as annoying when she can't breath.

Agreeing about "the kiss". Especially with those little gaspy breaths Kate made. That was not a duty kiss.

I felt slightly sorry for the alias Sawyer. He turned in to the thing he hated. He does seem to be so filled with self hatred that he does everything he can to make himself despised hoping maybe someone will do the job and take him out of this world. The fact that he can't bring himself to do the job himself may either be the internal call of self preservation or the merest hint that redemption is still possible and he doesn't want to give up on that.

Though I had a question about Sawyer. It never explained how he ended up in Sydney to take that flight.

Locke is in a tie for my fav. character with Sayid. Locke is getting into creepy territory again. I'm starting to think he's the one that wacked Sayid over the head. Cannot wait to see what happened to Sayid next week.

Charlie and Claire were cute.

Totally squeed over the "Jedi moment". :)

Yeah, that little oversight jumped out at me too. Maybe it will be revealed later when they address why he was in Australia and why he was apparently heading back to the states. What if he has some sort of literal 'connection' to Kate?

Wordy McWord-word.
And for my fellow Star Wars geeks, did anyone else squee a bit at the "Jedi moment"?

You know, what got me about that line was that immediately after Hurley said it, Jack set off to torture Sawyer, a very un-Jedi-like thing to do.

The kiss was hot, but I'm still undecided on how I feel about Sawyer. He's falling a little bit too much on the smarmy side for me to find him attractive.

Good point. It would seem Jack went all Anakin and gave into the dark side. ;)

I'm liking Sawyer more each week, but I can't say I'm completely enamored with his character. That will take more time and much more character development. I'm hoping that now Kate knows some of his secrets, he'll feel free to tone down the smarmy act.
That kiss smouldered. There was even tongue!

::dies::

But, Kate Sue gets on my last nerve. She just so uptight and humourless. Gah.

It is very odd how Locke wound Sayid up like that, and even more surprising how easily Sayid fell for it. Seeing him actually torture Sawyer really freaked me out and I hope he never returns from his walkabout. (This is real departure from how I felt before now, when I still thought Sayid was teh hot. Now, not so much.)

I detest Shannon. Speaking as someone who does have asthma, I have to say that was the most lame acting job ever. Die, Shannon, die!

Maybe that's why I like Claire so much. She's eight months pregnant and stranded on a desert island with no peanut butter, yet, she keeps smiling! :)

For a Republican Guard, he's kind of a sucker. I mean, he bought into Sawyer using a cigarette to launch the rocket on a time delay? O....K.....

Die, Shannon, die!

We need that on an icon. :-)
