Would You Like Me To Tell You I Told You So Now or Later?



Boone and Shannon are step sibs? That was the big shocking discovery? By whose standards? Nuns? Turn on any soap or scan Lifetime's movie lineup and you'll find the story of a hot guy and girl and their parents remarriage. :p

On the plus side, I finally found these two interesting. The flashbacks revealed Shannon not just to be the bitch we knew she was, but an extremely smart and manipulative one. I wouldn't have put it past her to blackmail her 'brother' upon returning to the states - threatening to reveal what they had done to his mother if he didn't pay up. Poor Sayid, he doesn't know what he's getting himself into....other than the obvious. ;)

And poor frelled up, damaged, and slightly spooky Boone. He "felt relieved" (as did we all) when he thought she was dead. ::shudders::

Locke scares the Hell out of me.

So, last week Jack is all disappointed/pissed off at Kate. This week he's making googley eyes at her. If Sawyer is Spike-lite, then J/K has Bangel written all over it. ::heaves::

Forty minutes in we get token appearances by Charlie, Michael, and Walt. JJ, please, if you don't have anything substantial to do with your characters, leave them out of the ep. I would have much preferred more Kate/Sun bonding or an explanation as to what the hell changed Jin's disposition.


Putting aside Michael Vartan should never do accents, I adored the Bahamas scene. Syd, Marshall, Dixon, and Vaughn working togther so smoothly was thrilling to behold. It also reinforces what a waste large chuncks of last season were.

Second favorite scene was Weiss' birthday party. OK, you icon makers, my first born for an icon of Syd feeding Vaughn pizza. How adorable. Have I mentioned I'm a shipper? ;) But, the real reason I enjoyed the scene was that, for the first time, Syd got to hang out with her friends and family, be herself, be open and honest (mostly), not get dragged away on some mission that just couldn't wait and *gasp* be happy. She was having fun! It was all so refreshing. As was Jack sort-of cracking a joke "I don't do e-vites". Hee. (I also enjoyed his later remark in respone to Nadia's never having done anything this long - "How sad for you". Wow. At this rate he may crack a smile by sweeps!)

The new Vaughn - in with the stubble, out with the ties. I like it. :)

Obviously, I like Vaughn but even *I* wanted to tell him to "shut up" and let Marshall think. Good for Marshall finally losing the nerves and standing up for himself. And good for Vaughn for admiring him for doing so.

Now for my quibble - Weiss is part of the group now?! After being out of the loop for, gee, one fricken episode! Isn't some evil organization noticing the sudden decline in CIA agents? And that they all happen to be part of one big dysfunctional family? Two fathers, two sisters, two(?) boyfriends. Boone and Shannon look less incestuous. Not to mention, poor Sark is all alone now. :(

I love Locke.
I love Hurley.
I love Sayid.
Hell, even Shannon was interesting this week!
But I don't like scrawny, stalker, wedding-planner Boone.

And I forgot Alias was on after Lost!!!! I also love Weiss, so am sad that I missed the party. :0(

Ah, Posh. I still love you, baby. ::wants Ian Somerhalder somethin' fierce::
::wants Ian Somerhalder somethin' fierce::

Once again, it's you and me against the world, babe.
It wasn't until Boone did the nasty with his (eviler than I thought) stepsister then announced that he was "relieved" she was mauled to death by a polar bear that I started finding him kinda hot. ;)
I adored Boone and Shannon's backstory. It was so twisted and wrong. I am so there. And so interested in the fact that Shannon is actually worse than she seems.

It looks like Locke's building an army of minions.

As was Jack sort-of cracking a joke "I don't do e-vites". Hee.

The funniest thing about the scene was the way Jack seemed to have a 4-foot-diameter fun-free bubble around him the entire time. It was almost visible.
And so interested in the fact that Shannon is actually worse than she seems.

I know! For once, a backstory that's not redeemy.
Exactly. I still want her dead. :-)

Agreed.

Hey! How about a reality show called "Really Lost"?

In which Shannon, Marissa, Kennedy and (nominate others) are exiled to one of those little atolls where France used to conduct nuclear tests before it signed the test ban treaty.

It's not a coninuing series. Just one special ep.

I won't give away the ending.

(Spoiler alert)

France gets special permission to conduct one last nuclear test. :D
Well, we'd have to have one winner who gets off the island. As a reward they can get Riley! Oh, wait, they'd still be a loser. :p
As a reward they can get Riley!

Riley's not ON the island?

But you make a good point. What could the prize be?

I know! I just thought she was a whiny, useless bitch. But not we find out she's smart, manipulative one who will do anything (includign her brother) to get what she wants. Still, I was kinds happy when I saw her laying there all mauled and everything. :)

I think it was the suit. It seemed to act as a repellent to all those he came near....except for Marshall who probably whipped up something in his lab to combat it.
Now I just have to wait for Jems to post the torrent so I can watch it. Not, you notice, that that has stopped me reading your comments.

/whore
And I think I sprained my eyes rolling them over all-things Weiss last night. Him leading a mission? He's the ONLY ONE who got captured from said mission? And now he's in with the group? Pu-leeze!

I love Weiss, but, sometimes I wonder how he got into the CIA in the first place. I mean, he didn't figure out what was going on when all of friends/co-workers quit at the same time? I can see why Sloane didn't extend him an invite right away. And how did he get captured? With not a scratch on him may I add. Don't even get me started on the 'My heart! My heart!' schtick. :p
One think I love about Locke is that you never know which side he's on from one moment to the next, keeps you on your toes :)

Shannon is even more of a rat girl that I thought! Maybe she will be the next person to die really, and this fakeout is a false fakeout ;)

I think Jack forgives Kate her lies because he also feels he's failed in some way and can't throw stones. So yes, he was angry last week, but I think he feels to stay that way in their situation is useless.

I love Hurley :)

Marshall looked a lot more relaxed in his role last night than he did last year. I love Marshall :)

I'm currently working on the theory that he's Rambaldi's heir. :p

Eh. I'm still going with sloppy, inconsistant writing. They seem to portray him in a way that suits that particular episode best. Reminds me a bit of Spike on Season 5 of 'Angel'. And, gee, Fury was/is involved on both shows. :/
Hee, he just may be :)

As for Jack and Kate, well, I was looking on the bright side ;)
I tuned in late and was in and out of the room while fixing dinner, so I missed some of it. Enlighten me, please:

...threatening to reveal what they had done to his mother if he didn't pay up...

What did the do to his mother? Did they do a Heavenly Creatures job on her?

He "felt relieved" (as did we all) when he thought she was dead. ::shudders::

Wait. She's not dead? Just...well chewed? (I missed the preview for the next episode.)

Locke scares the Hell out of me.

Yeah. WTF? Do we know how he became paralyzed? I'm wondering if he has some connection to French woman he's trying to hide. And why did he give his compass to Sayid? When he was questioning him about what he was doing there with those maps it looked as if he was deciding whether to kill him or give him a pass. Guess he settled on pass (for now), as if he decided he didn't present a threat. I wonder of the actor who plays Locke was surprised to discover his character was evil, or if not evil, ruthlessly following a secret agenda and ready to kill anyone in his way.

If Sawyer is Spike-lite, then J/K has Bangel written all over it. ::heaves::

LOL - the kind that kicks off with a big snort.

Hee. No. Considering she'd been scamming Boone for years and that he was deeple ashamed othat he had sex with his 'sister', I could envision her threatening to tell his mother what they had done togther if he didn't give her x amount of money.

Wait. She's not dead? Just...well chewed? (I missed the preview for the next episode.)

Nope, sadly, she's still alive. Her death was an hallucination brought on (supposedly) by some organic substnace Locke slapped on the back of Boone's head to help heal a cut.

And why did he give his compass to Sayid?

Turns out the compass was broken. Sayid soon discovered it didn't point north.
