Lost 6x11 'Happily Ever After' / 6x12 'Everybody Loves Hugo'  
Eugh, doing them both at once because I didn't manage last week.

1. Okay, I'm not doing the regular review for this because I should have done that before but I couldn't re-watch it and for some reason I'm lazy. Anyway.

2. I spent the whole episode being like OMG SHIP X IS ALIVE AGAIN BUT WAIT SHIP Y IS TOO! I mean. Des/Sayid, Des/Charlie, Des/Penny, Charlie/Claire and Des/Daniel all in the same episode? What's that? CRAZINESS!

3. Seriously, I was more invested in seeing old faces than about the plot. CHARLIE! DANIEL! Oh, how I miss Daniel. Killing him = most idiotic thing they did last season along with Dharma and FLocke. And Daniel liking Charlotte! And PLAYING THE PIANO! <333 Also, alt!Charlie is, duh, er, scary. But I had missed him so, which means I won't really mind if he shows up more.

4. Also, apparently dead people in the regular timeline who are in the alt are like the connection between the two timelines? Because that's what I gathered.

5. In each possible world, Eloise being insufferable is a constant.

Excuse me the pun, but. That. Though at least she and Widmore are together, yay? For them. For me, I can't care less.

6. Desmond working for Widmore: WTFFF.

Desmond and Charlie underwater: that was actually a genial scene imo.

Desmond and Penny: awwww. I liked the role reversal, even if for some reason the whole thing seems... kind of not as genuine as regular Des/Penny?

alt!Desmond, in general: the wacky Lost-like version of George Clooney in Up In The Air anyone? Or at least that's what I thought at first.

regular!Desmond: did Widmore's magnetic thing have some, uuuuh, effects? I'll elaborate more in the review for 5x12.

7. ANYWAY, FINALLY SOME DESMOND! It was time. *rolls eyes*

8. About the rest: FLocke is still the worst mistake ever happened in Lost. True. Fucking. Fact. Sayid in the end was GUUUUH and very good shipping fodder. I'd like to know what's the point of Jin being at Widmore's unless it's because they want an excuse for Titus Welliver to come back as War from SPN in an epic crossover. Widmore is still WTF because seriously, WHAT, kidnaps Desmond and then he's like 'Penny and the kid are perfectly safe' before throwing the guy into that thing? JFC there are five or four episodes missing, will they finally say WHAT THE FUCK IS WIDMORE AIMING AT? *headdesk*

9. Seeing Minkowski again was cool though! But.. WHERE THE HELL IS CAPTAIN HOTASS? Sorry but since he's the only one from the freighter who hasn't shown up until now... I mean, dammit, I liked the guy, why does he have to be the only one not invited to the alt! party?

10. Also, the end of that episode was, in retrospective, fucking CREEPY.

But I'll get to it in a second.

11. BTW: it totally was in my top five this season even if I'm mostly confused. Then again. Charlie + Daniel + Desmond + ships resurrecting + awwwwww factor = I can be satisfied.

Aaand, now, on to the week's review!

Team CTRL + ALT + CANC

1. Chang being the one doing the whole charity narration thing was a surprise. But HI! I missed his face. Only good part of the Dharma business, imo.

2. Aw, Hurley and his blind dates. I loved him and Libby though, they were just so sweet. The date was so lovely. ;___;

3. Desmond: crazy psycho island matchmaker or what? O_o Idk what's going through his head after last episode but duuuh. He seems either to be matchmaking or creeping Ben out or doing other creepy stuff.

4. That said: ALT!BEN TAKING DESMOND FOR A CREEPER = BEST THING OF THE ALT AFTER THE HURLEY/LIBBY. PFFFFF. I WAS. DYING. OF. LAUGHTER.

Also, Desmond saying his son's name is Charlie means he knows about the regular timeline, doesn't it?

5. DESMOND RUNNING OVER LOCKE: WHAT-THE-FUCK? Either he knew about the regular and he wanted to revenge his regular-timeline self or as I read in some theory on darkufo it's actually to help him because this way Locke will end up at Jack's hospital and get fixed? It's a good theory imo, but still. WHAT.

6. That said: JFC DESMOND STOP DOING CREEPY STUFF. YOU'VE BEEN BACK FOR TWO EPISODES, DON'T PULL THIS SHIT ON ME.

7. Okay, again. AW AT HURLEY AND LIBBY. Yeah well, not much else to say about it, but AW. And Hurley, ilu. Alt or regular or whatever.

8. So, I think it's kinda obvious that people who died in the regular are the ones remembering it, and that said, WHERE THE FUCK IS BOONE? THANK YOU. Jesus, show, you give me ONE GLIMPSE in the premiere and now nothing? Damn, he can take a break from the vampire porn. *headdeeesk*

9. Anyway. Looks interesting. I'm still of the idea that this thing is going to end like The Dark Tower book seven epilogue number one, for whoever read it.

Team sane/Jacob

10. DUH. THEY REMEMBERED ABOUT JACK/JULIET?

This, people, is a real miracle. CONTINUITY! I applaud you.

11. That said, JAACK. <3 I like you trusting Hurley and being all reasonable and stuff.

12. Frank and Sun: more screentime, plzkthanks. Also, Frank, lose a button or two, thanks.

13. Poor Richard really needs his boyfriend to resurrect and have some kissing and making up going on. :/ He's so out of it.

14. Ilana pulling an Arzt on everyone: idek about TPTB eliminating characters at random, but I'm sure that no one's going to miss her, so whatever. We all know they only kill men when they need to. *roll eyes*

15. Ben and his random one-liners of wisdom: it took me four seasons but I'm actually liking both. WHAT. THE FUCK. I'M NOT SUPPOSED TO. Then again it's not the Ben show anymore and I was perfectly fine with Henry Gale, so.

16. Talking to Locke: Very Bad Idea imo, but I hope to be proved wrong. *knocks on wood*

17. MICHAEL!!!!!!!!! Shut up. I was very happy to see him. So whispers are dead people who can't move on? Well, at least they answered something and tried to close stuff. Poor Michael not getting to say he's sorry, even if it's weird since Libby should be on the island too? Whatever. I won't get an headache over it.

Team insane

18. FLOCKE DIE. YOU RUINED MY DESMOND/SAYID BONDAGE SCENE. YOU NEED TO SUFFER JUST FOR THAT.

19. Seriously, though. Can I has Titus Welliver back? I can't stand the MIB as Locke. I just can't. And thankfully Terry O' Quinn is good and it's just five eps left, or my patience would grow thin. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. *hates*

20. NO, I'm not pissed at FLocke throwing Des into the well, am I? Pff about that though. I saw it from ten miles away and I'm pretty sure he can't be dead. Hey, he survived the hatch imploding, it'll take a lot more than that to kill him. That said, WHAT THE FUCK. He's back for two eps and YOU THROW HIM INTO A WELL AFTER RUINING THAT PERFECTLY NICE BONDAGE SCENE? My kink, I want it back. Thanks.

21. Sayid being so zombiefied makes me want to cry. Brb, writing fix-it fic where the bondage sex happens and everything else goes AU. Seriously. TPTB, way to fuck things up. SAYID, DAMMIT.

Seems like I'll really end up with my favorite living and feeling character being Jack. If you told me in S1 I'd have said, WHAT.

22. At least Sawyer gives a damn about him. Duh. Actually. Sawyer, since you're the only one who seems to have functional brains around team insane, GET THE FUCK OUT OF DODGE? Because that's what I'd do if I were you.

21. Anyway, yay final reunion! Can I hope that a coup d'etat happens and FLocke disappears?

22. Also, was that wee!Jacob that Desmond saw before Locke showed him that well? O_o

23. Also, is Desmond fucking high since he got the electromagnetic charge thing? Look at him. I mean. Er.

Speculation corner

24. Just one thing. We have... five hours left of this. How the fuck are they wrapping this up if the story is still at 'HI! TEAM SANE AND TEAM INSANE JUST MET'? For the rest, I'm mostly confused so I'm just going along with it. Still. They're getting crazier and I'd really like to know how can they possibly manage it. Kudos. -nod-

And, uh, that was it. Finally. I'm caught up with reviews, yay!

Okay. Should be that. ;)

Your reviews are hilarious and oh so right. I liked the Hurley and Libby stuff, and I felt it was even more moving that the less than genuine Desmond/Penny stuff last week. But maybe because last week also had Des paired with everyone, including Widmore!

So if the dead people are more in tune with the island wold world why was Boone so cool with everything on 815?

JFC DESMOND STOP DOING CREEPY STUFF. YOU'VE BEEN BACK FOR TWO EPISODES, DON'T PULL THIS SHIT ON ME.

Totally. When Desmond out creeps Ben you know there is something seriously wrong in the Alt!universe.

How the fuck are they wrapping this up if the story is still at 'HI! TEAM SANE AND TEAM INSANE JUST MET'?

No kidding. I feel there should be like 1o+ episodes left to wrap everything up.

I hope Sayid goes to rescue Des next week and becomes un-zombie. Then Sawyer gets them all out of Dodge. And Richard's brain starts working again.
the female ghost of tom joad: COFFEE POLICEjanie_tangerine on April 14th, 2010 04:57 pm (UTC)
Well, if they're fun at least I accomplished something! Sometimes I feel like you can't really enjoy some stuff on this show unless you make fun of it.

Hurley and Libby were def. better than Desmond and Penny last week, I agree. Pity, but in 5x11 it just seemed forced or something. :/ And ha, you're right! Last week was the Desmond orgy or something!

why was Boone so cool with everything on 815?

Good point. Either because being the first dead one he's privy to stuff no one knows, or because they started remembering stuff after the flight? Though, Charlie was behaving strangely on the flight too. Mm. *ponders*

When Desmond out creeps Ben you know there is something seriously wrong in the Alt!universe.

SERIOUSLY. I guess you can outcreep Ben, if you put a lot of effort into it, but DESMOND doing that? Yeah. I'm crept out myself.

I feel there should be like 1o+ episodes left to wrap everything up.

Me too. Or at least a normal-length season.

I like that Sayid plan. Maybe they can tie each other up again, it should do wonders for feeling. Okay, that was bad, but still. And word about both Sawyer and Richard.
diandrahollmandiandrahollman on April 15th, 2010 01:34 am (UTC)

Can Jack come too? Because *that* is a foursome I'd love to see. :D
elliotsmelliot: Jack saveelliotsmelliot on April 15th, 2010 02:26 am (UTC)
Normally I would say no, but Jack was acting very reasonable last night, so yes!
diandrahollmandiandrahollman on April 15th, 2010 02:32 am (UTC)
YAY!!!!!

*squeals and applauds happily*
Aurilly: clayidaurilly on April 14th, 2010 05:30 pm (UTC)
This kid had black hair and looked just like Titus Welliver. I'm pretty sure it was young!MIB. The kid before was a golden blonde and looked exactly like Mark Pellegrino.

Zombie!Sayid makes me sad (though him holding hands with Zombie!Claire was what I was squeeing about the other day). And YES about Flocke interrupting the bondage. Between that and throwing Des down a well, he needs to die. Painfully.

I keep seeing people say that the answer about the whispers was lame. I don't think it's lame when the answer is something people have speculated; that just mean it makes sense. I would prefer something sort of obvious than something that came out of nowhere just to shock us.

I repeat: if this whole thing comes down to the fucking love triangle (since it seems that it's all about finding your soulmate, so whoooo will Kate choooooooose?), I will flip my shit.

Yes! Very healthy attitude. And really, hasn't this show always been giving us answers we already knew? We knew Claire was Jack's sister a year before it was "revealed". We know Juliet is David's mother (because frankly no other option makes sense). I think the issue in this, the 11th hour, is not so much whether or not we will get answers, damnit, answers! as whether we even remember which ones haven't been answered already or are even important. Excuse me while I get off my soapbox...
the female ghost of tom joad: lost sayid GUHjanie_tangerine on April 15th, 2010 01:11 pm (UTC)
Ahaaa. Now we have wee!Jacob and wee!MIB too? O__O augh. Show, CONFUSING. CONFUSING. *hates them*

Z!Sayid makes me cry so hard. ;__; why why why did they have to go there, WHY. AND FLOCKE TAKES AWAY MY KINK AND I HATE HIM FOR THAT. ;_______; AND YEAH WORD. KILL HIM. Or bring him back his face.

That. I mean, as long as it makes sense I prefer that rather than being shocked. Who cares about that really. And it's not like they can surprise us every time, right?

Pfff. I hope not. Even if tbh it seems highly unlikely. I mean, there are four episodes and then we're done and they have barely touched the triangle issue this season, if they went back to WHO WILL KATE CHOOSE it'd just feel weird as fuck. I hope they don't go that way, at least.

HAS TO HAPPEN. And then Frank can fly them out and we can all be happy and stuff. FLocke please die. Die. Or turn back to be Titus Welliver. Anything but that.

IT WAS. AND I'M TOTALLY WRITING IT ONE OF THESE DAYS, JUST WAIT FOR ME. It needs to exist. FLocke, taking away my kink, I hate you. ;___;

the female ghost of tom joad: lost des/sayid *g*janie_tangerine on April 15th, 2010 01:07 pm (UTC)
LOL. At least I wasn't the only one? Because I was seriously being like WHERE IS VERA FARMIGA NOW or something like that.

That. Idk but considering that he knows about stuff, it makes sense if he said Charlie because it was the name in the other timeline.

WAIT FOR ME I SWEAR I'M WRITING THAT. FLOCKE DIE. YOU TAKE MY KINK AWAY FROM ME AND I DESPISE YOU. >___

Yeah! I'm guessing this just means the shit is going to hit the fan at lightening speed.

21. Sayid being so zombiefied makes me want to cry. Brb, writing fix-it fic where the bondage sex happens and everything else goes AU.
Oh I think you should definitely fix this in your own special way.

It was nice to see Michael again, even if it was only for like two minutes. And an explanation of the whispers was nice too, even if we kind of figured it out.

13. Poor Richard really needs his boyfriend to resurrect and have some kissing and making up going on.
Yes. Indeed. Indeed.

5. DESMOND RUNNING OVER LOCKE: WHAT-THE-FUCK?
This!!! And what was with his little smirk, too? Whoa.

There was no way that Libby and Hurley weren't going to be adorable. And they got to kiss, awww. :)

Jack. :)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack **janie_tangerine on April 15th, 2010 01:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Exactly. Which is so NOT good. I don't like it when they are all calm for the whole season and then drop a thousand bombshells on you at the last second. ;_;

Ah, wait for me. I'm TOTALLY writing that bondage sex, fuck it.

Word about Michael. As long as he doesn't mention Walt I'm okay with him, lol. Ah, how I used to like him in S1. I think that the whispers were guessed since S2 but it's not like I was expecting them to be anything else, so.

Psycho!Desmond makes me perplexed. ://///

RICHARD. ;___; come oon Jacob, resurrect!

Awwww indeed at Libby and Hurley. And Jack, lol. Hi. My new favorite character. WHEN THE HELL DID IT HAPPEN.
Mushishimushishi7 on April 15th, 2010 12:59 am (UTC)
Oh I like creepy Desmond who is ridiculously hot!XD But I don't like Sayid being zombie-ish this way... This and Supernatural are both going really exciting now. I start to wonder what am I gonna do when they both end next month???!!!
the female ghost of tom joad: misha collinsjanie_tangerine on April 15th, 2010 01:02 pm (UTC)
Ah, for the hotness factor we definitely were meeting the expectations. ;) It's just that Desmond being creepy makes me go WTF O_o and yeah zombie!Sayid -> sucks ass. And ha, good question. At least SPN still has a S6? Lost ending is TRAGIC.
diandrahollmandiandrahollman on April 15th, 2010 01:33 am (UTC)
Des/Sayid, Des/Charlie, Des/Penny, Charlie/Claire and Des/Daniel all in the same episode?

...Des/Jack, Des/Widmore (hey, anything could happen)...hell, Des/Fencepost would probably work. ;)

Also, Desmond saying his son's name is Charlie means he knows about the regular timeline, doesn't it?

Or he named him after Charlie Pace in one reality and assumed in the other reality he would name a son after Charlie Widmore. Either of which is likely.

I read in some theory on darkufo it's actually to help him because this way Locke will end up at Jack's hospital and get fixed?

Oh, holy shit, I wasn't even going there. *boggles*

He's back for two eps and YOU THROW HIM INTO A WELL AFTER RUINING THAT PERFECTLY NICE BONDAGE SCENE?

What? He's jealous. ;D

Sawyer, since you're the only one who seems to have functional brains around team insane, GET THE FUCK OUT OF DODGE?

Maybe Jack can coax him back to the "good" side? With the promise of hot man-on-man sex in the jungle, of course.

We have... five hours left of this.

Is it? Because they've never counted the two-hour finale in any countdown so I kind of lost track of how many *hours* there are, exactly. And if they went any faster they would probably have run out of material by now. The universes are colliding faster now that Desmond's back and characters are starting to see around whatever curtain/looking glass, so I'm willing to have faith this will all come to a conclusion in an appropriate amount of time.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/sawyerjanie_tangerine on April 15th, 2010 01:01 pm (UTC)
Buahaha I had forgotten Des/Jack and Widmore too! Yeah, at that point Des/Water was a ship lolol.

Yeah, could be either way. I like that he'd do that because he knows about the other reality but until they tell us how it is...

TBH I hadn't gone there either, but er, it makes me feel better to think that it would be because of something such as that than because Des is a creepy homicidal Cupid on a car.

BUAHAHAHAH HE SO IS, but it doesn't mean that HE CAN'T RUIN MY BONDAGE. >_<

THAT? I'd totally go for that. Come ooon. Show. Give us some J/S again?

The finale is two-hour, yes. We have 13, 14, 15 and 16/17. AUGH FOUR EPISODES AND IT'S OVER WHAT WILL I DO WITH MY LIFE? I don't know but it just seems that they have too much stuff up in the air to close everything in four episodes, but eh. We'll see, I guess? Let's hope, at least.
Lou: Lost - Bengottalovev on April 15th, 2010 02:37 am (UTC)
ohhh, a double review! I still can't believe they'll wrap this shit in 5 hours.

five. hours. I think we're all confused.

but damn, it's quite a ride. it's a lot of fun to see you (and other flisties) all giddy about their ships and favorite getting screen time. I'm covered since Recon, so I sort of lay back and am happy for you guys.

although I agree, a lot of WTF and DO NOT WANT, especially zombie!sayid and high as a kite!Des being tossed down a well. seriously. I found Des running over Locke in the alt really creepy too, jeez.

*boom* <- what? the Lost writers consider it a good exit, it seems!
the female ghost of tom joad: COFFEE POLICEjanie_tangerine on April 15th, 2010 12:58 pm (UTC)
LOL, I couldn't leave last week alone, could I?

Yes. I think we all are. ://

And ha, are they trying to make us happy before crushing us? Even if they still need to give me my real ship back. *glares*

ZOMBIE!SAYID = DO NOT WANT EVER. If that doesn't get fixed I'll cry or something. Des and the well was fucked up, but the running over... er, too. Duh. I don't even know anymore.

If the show ends with the island exploding, I won't be surprised...

God I love your reviews and they always make me lol (in a good way, not a "this is ridiculous/lame"-type way ;p) but I especially, especially agree with this. I think I said to someone else that I wish they'd unleashed Desmond on his magical quest or whatever earlier in the season, because it's only now -- 12 episodes in -- that the season feels like it has momentum and an actual purpose. Like, they really could have tighened up a lot of the on-island action (like in Team Insane's camp, etc.) and pared it down, I think, and gotten the same result. Because you're totally right -- how much have they really dealt with so far? The island's a cork? Faaaantastic.
the female ghost of tom joad: ARE YOU SERIOUS?janie_tangerine on April 15th, 2010 07:48 pm (UTC)
Well, good to know because I aim to amuse! ;) And really, it wouldn't be half as good if we couldn't make fun of them, right?

But yeah, I totally agree with you. They had some stuff going on which was utterly unnecessary and now it kind of seems too late for things to be picking up... but eh. We'll see what they managed to cook up. And sincerely I could've done with less team insane (sorry, but errrr, f!Locke and me are not exactly tight *sigh*). And yeah, until now we know that: the whispers are dead people (which we guessed in season one) and that the island is a cork, and oh, wait, that both Jacob and the MIB are probably liars. Much? No. :/
