Lost 5x08 LaFleur review  
Oh God. I'm so freaking confused about this thing but I, uhm, liked it?

Team OMG SAWYER FINALLY GETS AN EPISODE!!!!

1. So... it's no mystery that I like hero!Sawyer. I'm easy, I buy everything. And ha, I bought it, easy that I am. I kinda loved him here. From putting his con skills at use to calling Daniel Plato, even if now since he's supposed to be Creole he needs to pull off some French on me. Yeah, why, that's the stuff I care about.

1b. Though now wtf, they could have done this before. I'd have used it in the Depression AU. Faking to be Creole, I mean. Whatever, back on the episode.

2. I still don't have an idea why Sawyer would trust Locke so much especially after The Brig, but whatever.

3. Also? His 70s cut is HIDEOUS. Either you don't straighten it or you cut it shorter. Thank you.

4. The shirt was totally from Josh Holloway's wardrobe, I tell ya.

5. I love the con he pulled. The Black Rock was totally a smart move, and aah, Horace, you do fall for that stuff. After all he lied for a living...

6. So the submarine was Dharma stuff? Interesting....

7. Also, three years being enough to get over someone? Famous last words indeed... how I wished they were true though. ;)

8. ALSO, HE HAD GLASSES ON FOR THE WHOLE EPISODE!!! THE GLASSES!! SAWYER AND THE GLASSES!!! *IZ DEAD* Why, doesn't everyone know that glasses!Sawyer = Janie's favorite Sawyer EVER?

(why the hell do you think that I like the comedy part of Deus Ex Machina so much?)

Team Dharma, these unknown people...

9. Uhm, wtf's up with Horace's wife? The other one I mean, but I can't remember the details right.

10. Also, since when Horace looks like the poor man's Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler?

11. OMG, JASON'S FRIEND HERC FROM FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS IZ IN DHARMA!!!! *cracks up* Or at least I think it was him. The one dancing with the girl in the beginning I mean.

12. Haaai young!Charlotte. Aw, poor Dan. He was so beaten up this episode.

13. I don't mind the Amy woman but not too fond of her either. Also, wtf, babies EVERY EPISODE? Geez, it almost makes me miss Do No Harm.... and yeah, I said it. Almost being the key word.

14. I love everyone driving the vans, lol.

Team Miles because he deserves it

15. I'm loving Miles so-freaking-fucking-much. Seriously, he's there just for the snark right now but what snark. He makes me crack up. Now that Sawyer is in full hero mode we need the snark replacement or what? Whatever, good for me.

Team wtf time travel

16. Aw, poor Daniel. I really wanted to squish him throughout this whole thing, poor baby. Also if... what the HELL was it that he said he wasn't gonna do in the beginning? Bzuh?

17. Also, THEY SHOW THE FOUR TOED STATUE... and it disappears three seconds later? *rolls eyes*

Team IT'S MAYBELLINE CRAPHOLE ISLAND!

18. I didn't get all the terms of this truce thing but... well, sorry for being so blunt, but...

Richard, do me. Please.

Everything I need to say. I'm developing such a crush on Richard that it isn't funny. On him, on his blue shirt, on his eyelashes, on his stubble and on his hips. Geez, have you seen his HIPS? *dies*

19. Also, someone needs to write Richard/Sawyer just because. That was a lot of pretty. Also, one of my favorite scenes this episode indeed, I liked how it was done.

Team oh, Sawyer/Juliet, what do I have to do with you?

20. Okay. So, the point is... I like it but I rationally don't. In the sense that while I like them being together, I like that they seemed happy and that they were alright with each other I know that it'll get abysmally screwed up now that the O6 are back and I don't want it. *sigh*

21. That said, I'd have rather had some developing. I mean, three years later fine, but having them being kinda friends in the beginning (because that's what they were) and then jumping at one point when they're in domestic bliss and saying out loud that they loved each other (and fine, Jack told Kate in S3 and Sawyer kinda said it in 2 but he was delirious there and he surely didn't tell her and Kate didn't tell Jack in S3) is pretty big. I'd have rather wanted to see it. Which I'm afraid won't happen. But the point is that deep down I like it even if I know it doesn't mean any good considering which show are we watching. I mean, they said it. It isn't them just trying to forget Jack and Kate or moving on, it's them doing it while genuinely liking each other and while I'm all for it considering how they were screwed up, it's something I'd have rather seen building up.

22. Then again, there was Sawyer spooning dressed in white. Who am I to complain just about that?

23. Also, is Jin's Sawyer's relationship counselor? (I'm referring to the single flower since it was Jin's exclusive until now..)

24. Also, mechanic!Juliet was a surprise. What is it that this woman can't do?

25. Anyway, the Sawyer/Juliet stuff in the flashbacks was pretty good. I like them being friends. Even if she looks kind of too happy and didn't make much sense when she wanted to go back in 1974 but whaatever. Since when Lost makes sense with everything?

26. And aw, I loved Juliet smiling when the baby was born. And the Sawyer/Jin bonding outside.

27. BTW, baby can't be Ben. He'd be thirty years old now if he was and he wasn't born on the island, he was born on some side of a road in Portland or something.

Team OMG THEY'RE BACK!!

28. Okay, not really in topic, but I love Jin. That said.

29. Aaawww at Hurley's face.

30. Jack's ten seconds were an explosion of PRETTY. And no one doesn't convince me that he and Sawyer weren't eye-fucking for that split second before Kate is back. *sigh*

31. And well... yeah. Kate is back too. Now we'll see. I sincerely dread what's to come.

32. WHY TWO WEEKS for the following one? That's so not funny. -nod-

33. BTW, I miss Des. And I miss Sayid. And I can't even decide they're involved in other activities because they aren't in the same place as last season. Faaail.

34. So, I liked it. I don't know what to make of it still. I just know I need to read Richard fic and that someone needs to fill the blanks with the Sawyer/Juliet deal. -nod-

OMG SAWYER FINALLY GETS AN EPISODE!!!!
HELL YESSS!

1. He was awesome, I loved everything he did.

2. HA! I know... I think he clings to whomever can offer some hope to him.

3. ew, I too didn't like it. Also, the clean-shaven look doesn't work for me.

4. LOL.

5. Loved too, it was smart and believable!

7. Let's hope he will prove stronger than we think (I know, no chance of that...)

9. You think Horace had another wife? I thought he was talking about this one when we saw him before... But yeah there is somtehing that doesn't add up here.

12. Daniel's desperation was so palpable. *sighs*

13. PLEASE STOP WITH THE BIRTH SCENES! Thank you...

15. You may be right - if Sawyer is the serious hero/leader, we need another snarky guy. And Mileas is funny!


16. He wasn't gonna tell her. Meaning Charlotte, about not ever going back to the island, since it was what isntead made her go back, as she said a few episodes ago.

17. Ah, so that was it? The 4 toed statue when it was under construction?

19. I don't like Richard, but yes, it was a good scene.

20. I'm happy enough that they had their 3 years.Remember, "we'll always have Paris?" Kinda like that.

21. You know, maybe they will show us something. But if not, at least the writers can't screw it up. I like to imagine how they hooked up.

25. I think it does make sense, in a way. She's been tired of the island for years. Back when it seemed her and Jack were going on the sub, she had been incredibly happy, but Locke blew it up. She simply can't wait. And in 2007 yes, she has her sister and nephew, but nothing else.

27. Horace is not Ben's dad, right? Besides, we saw Ben being born near Portland! They can't go back and change that, can they?

28. Me too. Offering to take that body back home was so sweet of him.

30. THEY WERE! *happy sigh*

32. oooh, I didn't know that. They said they were going to do all the episodes without interruptions. *poutsé

34. Filling in the Sawyer/Juliet blanks seems a great idea. I hope someone does that! *looks pointedly*

3. Yeah, the scruff was better. Not that he isn't gorgeous anyway but I mean, he was half-shaven in S1 too but the hair was waaay better.

9. I didn't remember it but from reading the other reviews I remembered that Horace was supposed to be married to this Olivia who was also Ben's teacher in Dharma? But I haven't seen that episode in a while and since it was Ben centric I doubt I'll ever re-watch it.

15. LOL, Miles fits the bill!!

16. *headdesk* Right, sure. Where was my head?

17. Well, I don't think they had another statue... or so I hope. I'm fairly sure it was that one. Clearly we still know zilch about it. ;)

20. Yeah, you have a point. Ah, Paris. *sigh* I'm totally okay with them having three years, I'd have just liked to see something of it since it was pretty much the biggest leap they took with quadrangle stuff.

25. True too. I just didn't see why she should leave in 1970 when she hasn't even her sister, poor woman.

27. Nope, Ben's dad is Roger (workman ;) ), the skeleton in the van. Horace recruited him I think if I remember right. Roger, not Ben. ;) Also if they changed that they'd kind of take twenty years off Ben which is too crazy even for them. ;)

30. THEY SO WERE I TELL YOU.

32. This is the only one I think. *glares*

34. MM, who knows. ;)
(Deleted comment)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost julietjanie_tangerine on March 5th, 2009 01:21 pm (UTC)
Ha, I can go behind you. Don't worry, I still have a dead guy to stalk. ;) ;) And Sayid first so I can wait, but let me have a turn because THOSE HIPS. Gah.

2. True too, but I guess they're just ignoring stuff. I mean, after The Brig I'd have been pretty pissed at Locke if I was Sawyer but then again, who knows. ;)

9. I didn't even remember he was married to Olivia but then I remembered when I read other reviews and I was like, WTF is that? Even if since they're in 1974 from what I gathered and Ben doesn't show up until 1978 maybe something happened meanwhile...? *doesn't have an idea*

15. Ha, Miles is the awesome. I'm all for moar Miles now.

27. I think I read it and it'd be pretty intriguing if that's him! But whatever, I'd say definitely not Ben indeed.
Lou: Lost - sawyer smuggottalovev on March 5th, 2009 02:25 pm (UTC)
it had been SOOOOOOOOOOO long since we had a Sawyer episode. gawd. *holds Sawyer close*

2. I was mesmerized at how convinced of Locke Sawyer was throughout. huh.

3. yes, yes and yes. cut the hair baby!

4. I had the exact same reaction! lol! no need for wardrobe, let's take stuff from home!

15. Miles for the frigging win. gawd I love his snark. it's glorious.

18. omg, yes, what is up with Richard? can he throw pheromones through the monitor? I'm getting fidgety, really! *plans to molest*

the female ghost of tom joad: lost sawyer *g*janie_tangerine on March 5th, 2009 04:10 pm (UTC)
*pushes him in your direction* Snuggle up, woman! ;)

Seriously, Locke CAN convince people. Except for Jack until a certain point. See why I like Jack? ;) ;)

And yeah, apart from the hair he was so gorgeous... but that hair. Aargh. Geez, take a pair of scissors and CUT. ;)

LOL at Josh's shirt! I mean, it totally was. Come on. It was pure Holloway fashion sense.

Miles is SO GOOD! I love Miles. I'd marry his snark.

can he throw pheromones through the monitor? I'm getting fidgety, really! *plans to molest*

LOL HE DOES! And it looks like there's quite the line so Richard will have to clone himself in order for all of us to molest him properly!

19. Also, someone needs to write Richard/Sawyer just because. That was a lot of pretty. Also, one of my favorite scenes this episode indeed, I liked how it was done.

Starting with this one, because OMG IKNOWIKNOWIKNOW!!! Watching them sit together on that bench made my mind wander. Someone does need to write them.

8. ALSO, HE HAD GLASSES ON FOR THE WHOLE EPISODE!!! THE GLASSES!! SAWYER AND THE GLASSES!!! *IZ DEAD* Why, doesn't everyone know that glasses!Sawyer = Janie's favorite Sawyer EVER?

Again, nodding my head in agreement. I loved those nerdy glasses on him. I actually didn't mind his hair, I thought he looked kinda hot. Maybe it was just him being clean-shaven, IDK.

well, sorry for being so blunt, but...
Richard, do me. Please.


Me first.

20. Okay. So, the point is... I like it but I rationally don't. In the sense that while I like them being together, I like that they seemed happy and that they were alright with each other I know that it'll get abysmally screwed up now that the O6 are back and I don't want it. *sigh*

Oh, I know. Leave Kate out of this, plz, thx.

30. Jack's ten seconds were an explosion of PRETTY. And no one doesn't convince me that he and Sawyer weren't eye-fucking for that split second before Kate is back. *sigh*

LOL that's exactly what I was thinking!!! Jack looked hot, they exchanged that look, and slash with J/S is back!

I thought last night's episode was a vast improvement over the last one. In addition to having so many potential slashy moments, I liked the story. I've liked Juliet for a while, so it was nice to see her live a normal(?) life for a few minutes, especially since she's been so unlucky in love. Unfortunately, it looks like that's going to continue, aaarrrgh.









the female ghost of tom joad: lost sawyer julietjanie_tangerine on March 5th, 2009 04:07 pm (UTC)
Seriously. There's the physical need for Richard/Sawyer right now. I'm afraid I can't make them make out sitting on the bench (or wait... maybe it could be Richard's way to get repayment? Yes but then there's the his people question so nothing. Aw, damn) but if someone gets some idea God, please YES. Mm. Richard!! *dies*

He's just so lovely with the nerdy glasses. I just have such a thing for the whole steamrolled Harry Potter look *sighs happily*.

Ha, okay. I'll get in line and stalk Boone meanwhile.

Seriously, leave her out. I like Juliet so much really, I don't want her to get screwed all over again. Even if since it isn't a Something Nice Back Home thing (in the sense that if they tell each other I love you and obviously mean it instead of thinking about someone else or so we should believe) maybe it'll be harder to screw that up. Aw, I don't have a fucking idea. I just want Kate to leave both Jack and Sawyer alone lol. ;)

And YES, J/S SLASH IS BACK! Fuck, I had this fic I was starting to do but then with this S/Juliet domestic bliss thing it isn't ever gonna work if I don't make it very AU. Argh.

Yeah, this was EONS better than Jeremy Bentham, that's for sure. I loved the slashy moments, I really enjoyed it and it was so good to see them happy. Really. And I like Juliet so much, it was deserved for the both of them. Sadly, triangle of DOOM is back again. *sigh* Can we have Jack, Sawyer and Juliet and Sayid can go with Desmond and Penny and who cares about Kate? *sigh*

This could work! There's nothing to say that they couldn't have been sexing as well as the other resolution. A little something for Richard, a little something for his people. Maybe it was a two-fer. ;)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost richardjanie_tangerine on March 5th, 2009 08:10 pm (UTC)
God, you know, I think I like it. I'll get the editing of the Depression fic out of my way first (well, it's porn editing, I guess I could have it worse) so that I have it done and posted and then I'll give that a thought. Because that pairing needs to be written.

Team OMG SAWYER FINALLY GETS AN EPISODE!!!!

Yes! I know. When was his last episode? I feel it was the tree frogs!

Also? His 70s cut is HIDEOUS. Either you don't straighten it or you cut it shorter. Thank you.

Thank you, yes. I vote of a cut and a return to more messy. Maybe he and Sayid can share hair straightening dos and don’ts.

Also, since when Horace looks like the poor man's Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler?

Good call. He had some serious puffy face going on.

OMG, JASON'S FRIEND HERC FROM FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS IZ IN DHARMA

Ahh! Oh, that is who it was. I knew the other fellow from Mad Men.

Aw, poor Daniel. I really wanted to squish him throughout this whole thing, poor baby. Also if... what the HELL was it that he said he wasn't gonna do in the beginning? Bzuh?

I think he said, this time he wouldn’t scare Charlotte with his prophecy of doom.

Richard, do me. Please.

Get in line. I do not share.

Also, is Jin's Sawyer's relationship counselor? (I'm referring to the single flower since it was Jin's exclusive until now..)

Good catch!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost epic love story of doomjanie_tangerine on March 5th, 2009 03:57 pm (UTC)
It was... Every Man For Himself I think. Like, early S3. Like, no. Seriously. It had been too much!

If it was like in S1 where it was straight but short it would be alright but like this? Ew. I vote for him and Sayid changing the hair straightening policy, too.

Really, WTF? I remembered him with shorter hair and surely less weight.

Yeaaah, he was Herc! I was soo expecting Scott Porter to pop up from somewhere, possibly walking.

Thanks for clarifying that about Daniel, I just didn't get it. Ah, why does he have to talk that fast *sigh*.

Ha, the line for Richard is long, I see! Oh well, while I wait my turn I'll use Miles to stalk my dead boyfriend. -nod-

As soon as I saw the flower I was like what, Jin all over again? Ah well, they had three years to exchange confidences and relationship counseling after all.

Glasses!Sawyer is my favorite as well, you have no idea how many icons I had made for me with those really bad ones they made for him..and when he had the pirate hair with them, dear lord..DEAR GOD!!!!!!!!

Sawyer glasses, Sawyer spooning, Sawyer being Romantic, Sawyer having that look of sweetness on his face when he saw Jack..as confusing as the episode was...LOVED IT, LOVED IT ALL.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost sawyer OMGjanie_tangerine on March 5th, 2009 08:08 pm (UTC)
God, the S1 glasses were the BEST. Made by Sayid!!! I was so sad to see their loss in the finale -nod-. And THE PIRATE HAIR!!! God, the glasses. I loooove the glasses.

And ha, GOOD REASON TO LOVE IT ALL indeed.

1. Mine too. Oh, mine TOO.

3. LOL, Dharma straightener?

7. Yeah. Sadly. I sooo don't want the quadrangle in full swing again.

8. Isn't he just so... aawww. I love those things.

10. The Man Behind The Curtain + Cabin Fever, but he looked kinda a lot better in those episodes.

12. Totally. :(

14. I LOVE the vans!!!

17. I MEAN, IT WAS SOOOO UNFAIR.

19. I kinda want to. And I kinda have a bunny, maybe. I dunno but I'll see.

27. I'm spoiled so I think I know but not giving it away. ;)

30. LOL, J/S? Bring it on. ;)
Bloody Rock God: craphole waitress in trainingaussiephil on March 6th, 2009 08:59 am (UTC)
LOST HAS A CHARACTER NAMED PHIL NOW. He's kind of a dick, but I don't care.

I still have to shout "Dead man walking" whenever I see Horace.

I think Jin speaks better English than Sun does now. Also he can throw in some French when he's being romantic.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost hurleyjanie_tangerine on March 7th, 2009 10:39 pm (UTC)
Hey, he was the Nazi Waffle in Pushing Daisies, that guy is COOL! And hey, I won't ever get anyone named Lavinia so here you go!

LOL, I do too. Totally. Now it'll be dead Mickey Rourke walking though.

Oh, Jin speaking French would be so awesome! *loves*
twixcoffeecrisp7 on March 11th, 2009 02:45 am (UTC)
Why have I not commented on this yet?

20-22: Word. You just completely summarized my feelings on Suliet. It's kind of creepy actually!
23: Haha I loved how he walks into the house and Juliet's already got like 20 flowers sitting in a vasee on the table :P
25: They were great as friends! But yeah, what was with ultrahappy!Juliet? I love her, so it's nice for me to see her happy, but it was a bit odd from my point of view. And wanting to go back to 1974 when she was what, 5? That would be odd...

SAWYER'S GLASSES!!!! He looked so great in the ones he had this episode... When he was looking back at Juliet in bed I practically fell off my chair. And then he took them off! @#$#$^#$%^ stupid Kate.
