I won the Lost lottery this week: Sawyer was half-naked and making the sexy not once, but twice. That immediately makes any episode three times as good as normal! Behold:
In the AltVerse, Sawyer isn’t Sawyer; he goes by his proper name, James Ford. Detective James Ford, that is. Seems that in the AltVerse, James reacted differently to the same event – the death of his parents due to a con-man. His goal is the same, but he’s now doing it as a cop rather than a fellow con-man.
Meanwhile on Craphole Island, Saywer openly plays both sides of the NotLocke/ Whidmore rivalry. Either way, he’s getting off the island.
Other Lost thoughts:
- I’d totally watch a Sawyer/ Miles buddy cop show. But only if the Sawyer/ Hurley road trip show I envisioned a couple years ago never gets off the ground.
- When James was looking for his blind date, I chanted, “Please be Juliet! Please be Juliet! Please be Juliet!”
- Good for Charlotte for slamming the door in James’ face. A gal shouldn’t take that crap.
- What does Whidmore think he’s going to do in his epic battle with NotLocke? A knife in the gut didn’t kill NotLocke. I don’t think bullets are going to be much good, either. So, what is Whidmore’s fighting strategy? His superior, withering glare?
- Put the dress down, Sawyer. Put. The. Dress. Down. Do not go down that Kate road again or, so help me, I will smack you.
Juliet just died, what? Four days ago? Maybe five? And Sawyer is already pining over Kate’s old dress on Hyrda Island and planning on running off with her? That’s hardly an adequate mourning period. I don’t blame Sawyer, though. I blame the writers.
So, listen up writers (even though the final episodes have already been written and filmed), can you all just decide which dude Kate is going to wind up with and keep her there? No more of this Jack-Kate-Sawyer love triangle. It’s not intriguing and it was never sexy. Let it go.
