Lost 6x13 'The Last Recruit'  
BTW: my icon isn't probably fitting the content of the ep that much, but a) it's awesome and b) represents my current feelings to a T.

That said.

Team CTRL + ALT + CANC

1. Okay, that theory I read last week re Desmond running Locke so that he'd get to Jack and be operated and possibly walk again? Suddenly makes sense.

2. I like that things are coming together in the alt, even if I really would like to know what was Ilana's job. O__o I completely didn't get it.

3. Up in the air!George Clooney!Desmond being the agent of fate and whatnot is still creeping me out but duh. At least he's THERE.

4. Aw, Jack and Claire. Nice, except that of course you didn't get to talk.

5. WHAT IS WITH ME BEING ALL AWWW AT BEN IN THE ALT? WHEN DID I START LIKING BEN? THIS IS THE PROOF THIS SEASON IS TOTALLY WTF.

6. Aw, Sun and Jin. ;___; they're so precious.

7. WHAT THE FUCK WAS WITH SUN SAYING THAT IT WAS HIM WHEN SHE WAS NEXT TO LOCKE IN THE HOSPITAL? Is she remembering stuff too?

8. Sawyer cuffing Sayid = HOT. The Miles/Sawyer cop show has to happen after this is over, for REALZ. Also poor Sayid. :(

9. Anyway, finally things are becoming exciting, in the alt I mean. Even if I still don't get how they can close this deal in four episodes. Not counting some spoilers I know about one of said four episodes, but I'm shutting up about that because I don't want to spoil anyone who doesn't want to know. But whoever knows has probably understood what I mean. Sorry for being so cryptic.

Team sane and insane just merged so idek, it makes it team half-sane?

10. AUGH.

JACK IS THE LAST RECRUIT????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*HEADDESK FOREVER* PLEASE. NO. I was counting on Jack NOT to go with f!Locke!!! Is there SOMEONE I can freaking trust not to fuck up sideways or not to become a zombie or whatever?

... hi, Frank. Please, stay alive. Thank you.

11. Seriously, I hope point 10 changes next week. It can't last. IT CAN'T LAST, FUCK IT.

12. Sawyer, the fuck are you doing? I like your way of thinking but er, why, why why do he and Jack have to argue even when they cooperate?

13. That said, this resurrected Jack/Sawyer y/y? Because that was some UST. AND THEY TALKED! AND JACK FOLLOWED SAWYER'S ORDERS! Phew. Finally.

14. F!Locke, die. Or become Silas again. As long as you stop wearing his goddamn face.

Also, poor Locke wasn't a sucker *punches F!Locke*. Yeah, me and him have had our disagreements over the years, but I never went as far as thinking he was a sucker. *headdesk*

15. Hurley and Sawyer discussing Star Wars = I died laughing.

16. Sun and Jin reunion: kind of understated, but HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!! I was starting to think it wasn't happening until the finale...

17. Nice, Widmore. You cheater. Not that I wasn't expecting that.

18. The physician looking like Tina Fey can go away now, thanks. Jesus. KEEP DANIEL IF YOU NEED A PHYSICIST, FUCK IT.

19. Okay, let's just talk about the highlight of this episode.

SAYID TOTALLY NOT KILLING DESMOND AT THE WELL.

OH, SHIP, I THOUGHT YOU LEFT ME BUT YOU DIDN'T. \o/ Seriously. He was so lying when he told Locke he had killed Desmond. He was SO lying. And Desmond finally doesn't look high anymore. And he totally told Sayid the right thing. Can I hope that this is what turns Sayid into a human being again? BECAUSE IF IT IS, OH, GOD, MY SHIP IS EPIC. It already was, more or less, but PLEASE DO HAPPEN.

I don't really want to be hyper about this because knowing them they'll ruin that for me the first five mins of next episode, but for now I will keep on safely believing that after f!Locke disappeared Sayid went to catch up with Desmond and they had hot, desperate, FELT sex in the jungle.

Y/y?

Anyway. That part = totally best part of the episode. Makes me ALMOST forget the crap they did with Jack.

20. I should say something about Kate and Claire too but I feel like I don't have anything interesting. Mostly, the first makes sense even if I don't care and I realized I completely lost touch with Claire as a character at least three seasons ago. :///

21. FRANK. MARRY. ME. HE EVEN HAD FOUR LINES. FOUR LINES!!!!!!! AND THEY WERE ALL GOOD.

Oh, Frank. <333 And LOL at Sawyer not remembering his name.

22. In conclusion: I need to write down my not-so-original theory before this show ends, I still don't get how they can wrap it up in four episodes, f!Locke needs to die and duh, seems like Jack is becoming the new Jacob or something? If he does, congratulations Darlton on not surprising anyone when it happens because it'd be totally not surprising. Which makes me think that it'll be someone else if only for shock value. Actually, considering that Sun/Jin talk, I'd be tempted to say that THEY would stay back together, but idk if that's too far out.

Even if nothing is too far out with this show, so. Who the hell knows.

Btw, I mostly really liked this. EXCEPT FOR THE ENDING, Sawyer being like IDEK WHAT TO THINK and F!Locke, but I never like f!Locke, so. And I weirdly missed the Ben/Richard party (maybe because Miles was there). WTF are they up to?

23. In conclusion, #2: I think that in the end, it's all a contest to see who blows more shit up.

And if it is, then Rousseau already won that four seasons ago. -nod-

Okay, going to class and to do stuff. If this evening I spam with reposting fic from the five acts meme, sorry. ;)

I don't think Jack is on Team Flocke, he told Sawyer that maybe they should stay because Flocke wants them out of the Island so I'm guessing he is against him and Flocke doesn't seem to like it imo. I don't think he will turn into a zombie or anything. I liked what Jack did tbh, and I agree with his reasoning. Don't see anything crap about it.

DESMOND AND SAYID. ♥ Epic.

The most important part of the episode: I hate Miles for confirming that Martin Keamy is indeed dead in the alt!verse. I'M IN DENIAL ABOUT THAT.

You might have a point, but with what Claire said... just, I don't want Jack on FLocke's side even if he's faking it. He was the last one I had faith not to go there, it just physically irks me. XD That ending was just... ewww. Even if for the rest of the ep I loved him, lol, don't get me wrong. ;)

INDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED. <333333333333333333

LOL, sorry! But hey, you got him back twice, right? ;) I'm still jonesing for some Boone, dammiiiit. XD
elliotsmelliot: Frankelliotsmelliot on April 21st, 2010 12:58 pm (UTC)
I love the Frank icon! I loved Sawyer's line about him walking out of a Burt Reynold's movie. I loved that he got 4 lines. Basically that is all I loved in the episode.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost frank is awesomejanie_tangerine on April 22nd, 2010 06:27 pm (UTC)
That icon is so made of win! I needed to have it. ;) And yeah, that was a brilliant line. And pretty much the best thing of the ep along with the Jack/Sawyer collaboration at the beginning and the Des + Sayid, but I can't disagree generally.
Aurilly: frankaurilly on April 21st, 2010 02:04 pm (UTC)
Even if I still don't get how they can close this deal in four episodes.
I thought there were 4 episodes, and then a two-hour season finale. The promo people just say 4 to keep everyone hysterical. So it's really six, if I am right. Not that that's enough to wrap it all up, but...

Is there SOMEONE I can freaking trust not to fuck up sideways or not to become a zombie or whatever?
MILES! and Frank

The Desmond/Sayid scene and any time Frank had a line (still sad that my Frank/Sun ship is over, though) were the highlights of an otherwise really exciting episode.

Upon further thought, I'm nervous that Jack got blown up in the same way that Claire got blown up in season 4 and will now have the darkness or whatever. I hate Flocke so much. HATE. Stop putting down real!Locke! Stop it, you douche!!! Widmore's another douche. I hate both of them. Jacob was sketchy as fuck, but now I am desperate to see him, just because he doesn't inspire me with the same kind of anger.
diandrahollmandiandrahollman on April 21st, 2010 09:10 pm (UTC)
I think it's three plus the two hour finale. So five hours. Yes, I had plenty of ranting about the stupid promo monkeys trying to mess with everyone in my review. >:(
the female ghost of tom joad: lost/spn otp 2.0janie_tangerine on April 22nd, 2010 06:31 pm (UTC)
Yeah, you're probably right? I mean, it's... 14, 15, 16 and then 17 part I and II? Something like that? Not enough to wrap it up anyway. :/

MILES AND FRANK, IN YOU WE TRUST.

Frank having one-liners has been the best stuff in the whole season, I fear. ;) LOL, no, joking, but still. And aw, Frank/Sun was such an awesome ship.

And AUGH. YOU HAVE A POINT. PLEASE NO. IF JACK FAILS ME I'LL... kill someone. JACK CAN'T FAIL ME AT THE LAST THREE EPISODES, GODDAMMIT. And yeah, that about Jacob. THAT.

Ah, good. I just totally didn't catch that. :/

LOL, indeed? And yeah, WHERE'S MILES I NEED MORE.
Mushishimushishi7 on April 21st, 2010 05:18 pm (UTC)
Honestly, I found Claire very creepy. Every time she appeared, I felt upset. But it's really nice for Kate to finally make her join them. And Frank, yes, he totally win. I really wish there'd be more scenes for him. I didn't expect Widmore to be such an asshole. I wish Eloise will appear in the future episodes and kick his ass! And I think Desmond and Sayid haven't met yet in the alt, have they? I'm really looking forward to that!
the female ghost of tom joad: misha collinsjanie_tangerine on April 22nd, 2010 06:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah Claire is either creepy or I just... idk, don't even care anymore. Pity because I used to love her in S1/S2, but they just totally managed to detach me. :/ Frank > everyone else. True fact. TRUE FACT. And yeah, the more it goes on the more Widmore becomes insufferable, eugh. I wish he never appeared past S3, dammit. And no, they haven't met in the alt BUT WHEN IT HAPPENS I'LL BE VERY HAPPY. <3
(Deleted comment)
the female ghost of tom joadjanie_tangerine on April 22nd, 2010 06:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah, ME TOO. O__O I'm really, really wanting to see that.
diandrahollmandiandrahollman on April 21st, 2010 09:08 pm (UTC)
1. Okay, that theory I read last week re Desmond running Locke so that he'd get to Jack and be operated and possibly walk again? Suddenly makes sense.

I *know*! But that still doesn't explain why Desmond/Widmore/Whoever wants him to walk in the Alt!Verse.

WHAT IS WITH ME BEING ALL AWWW AT BEN IN THE ALT?

Because somehow in this Second Chance Alt!Live he turned into a harmless little pussycat. Which I kind of like. Depending on which way the pendulum swung, Sawyer turned into a cop or a criminal and Ben turned into a mild-mannered schoolteacher or an evil mastermind. ;D

Is she remembering stuff too?

My question is *what* is she remembering? Locke or Smokey the Locke Monster?

I think Locke just thinks Jack is on his side. Jack has never really been on anyone's side though, especially if it involves doing something he doesn't want to do. And Claire can shove her theory on that. A lot of people talked to Locke. That doesn't make them all his slaves.

Also? I said this in a previous episode review: "...does Smokey really think he can get the rest of the candidates to leave the island with him? I mean, that would entail convincing *Jack* to do something he doesn't necessarily want to do while wearing Locke's face." I stand by that.

this resurrected Jack/Sawyer y/y?

Y!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D *does happy dance*

Jack is becoming the new Jacob or something?

I still vote Hurley, but who knows. I might just think that because Matthew said in an interview he thought it would be Hurley and he supposedly actually knows what's going on now. Sun and Jin have a baby to get back to, but I would support them as the final choice if only because she's the ONLY FEMALE in the running. *glares at Darlton*
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/sawyerjanie_tangerine on April 25th, 2010 01:36 pm (UTC)
I have this idea that Desmond has seen the ending and is trying to accelerate things and in that ending Locke walks? idk, just throwing stuff around. ;)

LOL, I LIKE YOUR REASONING. But hey, I <33333 pussycat Ben. He's much more likable than evil mastermind Ben. ;) ;)

Yeah. That's what I'd like to know. From the way she said it, probably Smokey, but idek.

I HOPE that Jack isn't really. I can't bear it if it's the other way. Claire is actually what's making me freak out about the whole thing. :////////

that would entail convincing *Jack* to do something he doesn't necessarily want to do while wearing Locke's face." I stand by that.

I like the reasoning. I'll trust you on that. ;)

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Hurley would be such a great choice! And yeah, lol, I'll trust MF since he's the only one who has an idea of wtf is happening, lololol. And good point about Sun and Jin...
Fangirlage like WHOA.: LOST // J&S - Waiting For Dawnhopelessfangirl on April 21st, 2010 09:55 pm (UTC)
Okay, that theory I read last week re Desmond running Locke so that he'd get to Jack and be operated and possibly walk again? Suddenly makes sense.

Had I stopped to think about it, that totally should've been obvious, especially where Jack gave Locke his business card at the beginning of the season. I think I was stuck on Des trying to KILL Locke instead of just injure him. *facepalm* Hindsight is 20/20!

I love that things are coming together in the alt world and the island world! Big ol' reunion everywhere!

WHAT IS WITH ME BEING ALL AWWW AT BEN IN THE ALT? WHEN DID I START LIKING BEN? THIS IS THE PROOF THIS SEASON IS TOTALLY WTF.

I think it's official that alt!Ben is the best Ben. And I love being excited about at least one version of Ben, cause I always felt bad for being like "Ugh, Ben" when Michael Emerson is made of awesome.

That said, this resurrected Jack/Sawyer y/y? Because that was some UST. AND THEY TALKED! AND JACK FOLLOWED SAWYER'S ORDERS! Phew. Finally.

AS;DLKASL;DASKF;LDSFKDL;FKL; okay. You know my feelings on this. I must've looked like an idiot trying to surpress my grinning that they had SCENES. TALKING. AWAY FROM KATE. But then the boat scene happened and my temporarily super-glued heart was shattered again. x__x Why, Darlton, whyyyyy. Anyway, I hope they become friends by the end of the series. At LEAST give us that.

I was talking to wandersfound on AIM as we watched the episode and we were both totally =D and D= -ing over Des/Sayid in additon to J/S. She was freaking out about Des, but I think she's just thinking the worst, cause there's no way Des is dead. I basically summed it up as "pics or it didn't happen." We didn't see it, so it ain't real. LALALALA DENIAL LAND.
the female ghost of tom joad: COFFEE POLICEjanie_tangerine on April 25th, 2010 01:44 pm (UTC)
Well, I hadn't thought about it until I read someone else's theory because I was too busy freaking out over CREEPER DES HAS RUN LOCKE OVER WHUTWHUTWHUT, so we're two. ;) ;)

And yeah, REUNION! Finally! Even if it never lasts.

And I love being excited about at least one version of Ben, cause I always felt bad for being like "Ugh, Ben" when Michael Emerson is made of awesome.

THIS, THIS, THIS, THIS. Alt!Ben is my precious, awwww. And I love ME, srsly, and it sucks that I have to hate his character because regular!Ben is what he is. Sooo... YAY FOR COFFEE POLICE. ;)

I WAS SURE YOU'D LOVE THAT SCENE. I LOVED IT TOO. AND THEN YES, DAMMIT. ;__; J/S TOTALLY WAS MY SHIP AFTER JACK/BOONE DIED AND I WAS SO HAPPY ABOUT IT, AND THEN. ;_________; Darlton, YOU FAIL.

Des? Dead? Pfff. No one in this show is dead until you see the body. And Sayid WAS SO LYING. TOTALLY. UTTERLY.
zsavagebelle on April 21st, 2010 10:42 pm (UTC)
Hey, I know this is a LOST post but I was wondering if you could recommend me some good SPN fic. I needs crack! lol
the female ghost of tom joad: psycho fanficjanie_tangerine on April 22nd, 2010 06:49 pm (UTC)
Ha, no problem for the topic, lol. And of course! Uh, what genre would you like (ie actually crack or it was crack as a metaphor? XD)? Because I have a bunch of stuff but idek where I should search for. Pairing, rating, anything, or I go with my gut? ;)
zsavagebelle on April 23rd, 2010 01:21 am (UTC)
I'm a Dean/Castiel girl ALL THE WAY. And you can go with your gut because the only fic I've ever read was a one shot (at least I think it was) that you wrote. But after the last episode I was like...I really need to start reading some fic because that pairing is too good to pass on.
(Deleted comment)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost des/sayidjanie_tangerine on April 25th, 2010 01:45 pm (UTC)
Sayid CAAAN'T HAVE DONE THAT. *is in utter denial* And yeah, ALL YOUR REASONS ARE LEGIT AND PROPER AND I STAND BY YOUR POINT. And until I see the body for me = everyone's alive. ;__;

OH YOU KNOW DES JUST MADE SAYID FEEL AGAIN. ;)

AND YEAH. DANIEL. MISS YOU.

Yeah. That. Indeed. JFC Darlton stop fucking ships up.
Janice: jackjaydblu on April 22nd, 2010 06:42 pm (UTC)
Sawyer cuffing Sayid = HOT. The Miles/Sawyer cop show has to happen after this is over, for REALZ. Also poor Sayid. :(
this was definitely one of the high points of the show. But, the scene was like waaayy too short, right.

Sawyer, the fuck are you doing? I like your way of thinking but er, why, why why do he and Jack have to argue even when they cooperate?
I liked them interacting...I didn't like the fight at the end, and I blamed Sawyer for being super cranky. I hope they haven't broken up for good...

I am very curious, yes very, to see where they're going from here...*bites knuckles* I don't like death...

the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack 2.0janie_tangerine on April 25th, 2010 01:38 pm (UTC)
IT SO TOTALLY WAS. And yes TOO SHORT I DO NOT AGREE.

Yeaaah. The fight. :(((( Seriously, it can't end with them like this. :(

I'm ready for a bloodbath. I hope it doesn't happen but... I'm bracing myself for it. :(
bold_seer: richardbold_seer on April 22nd, 2010 10:33 pm (UTC)
But it is relevant! And there being (slightly) more than two seconds of Frank in the ep totally made me think of you! :)

KEEP DANIEL IF YOU NEED A PHYSICIST, FUCK IT.

DAMN RIGHT!

Okay, so I still haven't watched all of this episode, because the streaming just gave up on me, but anyway.

SAYID TOTALLY NOT KILLING DESMOND AT THE WELL.

This is especially appropriate because everyone expected there to be some epic Sayid-Desmond confrontation related to Penny and the Ben-Widmore feud. But S5, of course, didn't really deliver on any front. *cough* Bitter? Not much.

punches F!Locke

Yes! Haven't cared much for Locke since S3, but that was harsh; Locke's story is tragic and he was better than that. :/

The most Lost-spoilery thing I do atm, and pretty much have done all season, is peaking at reaction posts before having seen the episode. I can't live without Castiel!spoilers - although I fret about them - but it's actually very liberating to watch Lost without constantly worrying about whether your fave character will make it to the next season/episode. Feeling zen.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost frank 2.0janie_tangerine on April 25th, 2010 01:48 pm (UTC)
Awesome, now I'm the person everyone thinks of when Boone and Frank are around. ;) I can't say I complain.

THAT. DANIEL. I NEED YOU IN BUSINESS.

S5 didn't deliver on pretty much anything imo. Worst season of this show ever, augh. IMO at least. Also the Ben-Widmore feud basically wasn't addressed anymore, WTF. Continuity, I miss you.

Haven't cared much for Locke since S3, but that was harsh; Locke's story is tragic and he was better than that. :/

WORD, WORD, WORD AND RE-WORD.

Yeah, me too. I don't really want to be Lost spoiled, also because the thing I care about I know about. So I really don't need to watch zilch. And yeah, I totally feel zen about that too. Every0ne's going to die in the end anyway if they do, so... ;)

(I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT CAS SPOILERS EITHER. ;_;)
