Lost 5x09 Namaste  
Uhm, I think the general reaction is pretty much divided on this, but me? I'm easy. And I think I loved it. Or at least, the squee level was the highest since the lima beans.

Team back to the future aka 30 years later

1. Sun, marry me.

Okay, fine, she wants Jin so she can't but Sun, MARRY ME. When she knocked Ben out I was all like 'YES' and finally some consistence writing. I like that she trusted him up to a point only and that she just owned him. Also, Sun and Frank = badass team really.

2. FRANK!!!! *DRAWS HEARTS* I love Frank. I love Frank so-fucking-much I can't even say. And wooow. Hot. And smart. And HE LANDED THE PLANE ON THE OTHERS' RUNWAY!!! And he's like, Jack #2. And he doesn't trust Ben worth a damn. YES!! I just miss the hippie shirts.

3. Okay. Ben is consistent. Ben is well written. And he was lying all the way this time too.

Doesn't mean that I-can't-stand-his-face anymore. *sigh* I want an evil villain who is straight about his evilness. Sorry, that's the obligatory I-don't-like-Ben angle of the review.

4. I'm not minding the two new people. Okay, I'm not exactly in a squee fest over them either but I'm cool with them.

5. Haaai, Christian. I'm not minding him that much lately, but I'm still okay with him for his awesome 5x05 speech.

6. Poor Sun though. The only one who landed in the present time and where's Jin? God, epic is epic.

Team Dharma initiative says NAMAAASTEEE!

7. I'm disappointed that there was no Jack/Sawyer hug. But I can do with the handshake. I guess that thirty/three years aren't enough to get over triangle grudges but I can hope they will sometime. Also, they are in the same scene. Sincerely, good enough for me.

Also, Sawyer/Hurley hug reminding Tricia Tanaka? YES, YES, YES. There's nothing like a Sawyer/Hurley hug really.

8. Aaww, the Jack/Juliet reunion was good. I loved the hug. I loved the awkwardness. I kind of like how they're dealing with the thing.

9. OMG the Kate/Juliet scene was.... oh, Juliet was so mean to her under it and I want her to be bitchy and mean. That was such a perfect scene.

10. LOL, Sawyer putting Jack as a workman and janitorial work? I kinda loved it. And how it establishes the role-reversal.

11. Role-reversal speaking, Jack is kind of acting bipolar lately. But I decided it's the withdrawal we didn't get.

12. And seriously, I loved that scene where he goes to Sawyer's house. The whole awkward thing was good and while they weren't nice to each other at all that's perfectly fine with me. It was fine with Sawyer's characterization and while Jack wasn't exactly nice to him either I guess that sooner or later it had to happen. I didn't find it forced or anything. And I'm kind of liking how they dealt with the triangle stuff until now, even if I need to see what happens after.

That said, I want to write Jack/Sawyer/Juliet *cough*.

13. I loved Juliet here. Said already in 9 but I so did.

14. Only disappointment: people, Hurley and Miles are better than just comic relief. When they will actually use them?

15. Radzinsky = total ass. God, I can just imagine him and Kelvin in the hatch... the dicks in a box OTP indeed. *rolls eyes*

16. SAYID I HAD MISSED YOU. Fine, you didn't exactly do much but I HAD MISSED YOUR ACCENT AND YOUR PRETTY FACE AND YOUR AWESOMENESS AND OH GOD young!Ben??? Giving him a sandwich??? Ohgod. I can SO see how this is not going to end well.

Also, I don't buy that they knew this in S2 or any time before mid S3.

This stuff is making my head hurt but whatever, it was awesome. Also, I definitely prefer young!Ben to adult!Ben, even if he's creepy anyway.

Also, poor Sayid. As soon as he gets the reunion with Jin... *sigh*

17. All the seventies music and wardrobe is making me squee. Seriously, I was born forty years too late.

18. Also, Daniel speculation.

So. Sawyer says Faraday's not there anymore. And they're in 1977.

In the premiere, Candle was listening to the infamous 1973 Willie Nelson record and Daniel was in the Orchid. That means that it was 1974 or 75 at latest when Dan was working in the orchid.

I'm having an idea that he ended up messing with what Candle was saying back then and that the guy gets ultimately unstuck in time sometime between 74 and 75 and that's how they'll get Desmond back into this story. My two cents.


19. Also, there was some good Sawyer and Sayid eyefucking, too. Mm. Yeah, I'm that easy. I missed Sawyer and Sayid in the same scene, too.

20. So definitely what I needed after blood test #456 this morning (no, it's actually number seven or eight but bear with me).

21. Okay, today I'm so writing fic. Possibly going on with some stuff I had already in the works too but I need to get back on track. *brain starts to plot*

22. Overall, I'm a totally happy camper for now.

23. Also, Matthew Fox is getting hotter with each episode or what? Because seriously, I couldn't take my eyes off the guy anytime he was on screen. Geez, that cut does wonders on him.

I agree with pretty much everything you posted there.

Aaww, the Jack/Juliet reunion was good. I loved the hug. I loved the awkwardness. I kind of like how they're dealing with the thing.

god, yes, that was an aawwwww worthy moment. So sweet. And talking about hugs, I was also really disappointed to don't see Jack and Sawyer hugging, for a while there I really thought there would be one. Which would have been nice! (and hot).

Also, there was some good Sawyer and Sayid eyefucking


Also, Matthew Fox is getting hotter with each episode or what? Because seriously, I couldn't take my eyes off the guy anytime he was on screen.

Yes, it's the hair!!

God, THE HAIR!! I mean, MF always was hot but with that cut he's just.... mmmmmmm. *licks lips and licks lips and licks lips*

Sometimes I think they want to put slashers off with denying us hugs. Not that it stops me anyway. ;) ;) It'd have been so good. And yeah, J/J was so awwwww worthy.
M: stay beautiful baby [lost]_chica02 on March 19th, 2009 01:04 pm (UTC)
I loved the ice between Jack/Sawyer and Kate/Juliet too! And the direct effect was Sawyer making Jack a janitor and Juliet sticking Kate in the motor pool so she could keep an eye on her. And can I say I also LOVED the shocked look on Jack's face when Juliet opened the door to Sawyer's house? Bwahahaha! *calms down* ;P

That said, I want to write Jack/Sawyer/Juliet *cough*.

YES YES YES. Please do. :)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost sawyer/julietjanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 02:03 pm (UTC)
I think I will. Write that, I mean. In like, half an hour. ;)

The ice was pretty much a given even if for Jack and Sawyer's sake I hope it melts soon. For Juliet and Kate, it can stay as long as ever. ;) And LOL, yeah, he was shocked indeed!
inthekeyofd: Sawyer-dimples-mediocrechickinthekeyofd on March 19th, 2009 01:42 pm (UTC)
When are you going to write the Jack/Sawyer/Juliet with Kate having to listen but not join in and runs away crying?? I'm waiting. :)

I loved that scene in the house, for Jack it's okay..for sawyer he has to establish himself, I can understand how he feels..when you're looked over, not listened to or underestimated, you have to do that when you have your chance.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost sawyer *g*janie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 02:05 pm (UTC)
I think I'm writing threesome this afternoon. ;) I hope I can get Kate in, too! ;)

Yeah, pretty much what you said. I figured they'd need to be bitchy to each other before trying to get over it. Because they can't not get over it.
Lou: Lost - jack sawyer smirkgottalovev on March 19th, 2009 02:08 pm (UTC)
I'm really happy that you are a happy camper! I should say that I'm with you with so much in your review (as always! lol!). As you said, for the Jack and Sawyer stuff, I am just happy they are in the same scene again, that's about it. and god, yes, more Miles and Hurley please.

wee!Ben is deliciously creepy. but like you, I wonder where the hell is Dan and when he left.

but most importantly? FRANK! *happy dance*
the female ghost of tom joad: lost hippie winsjanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
It doesn't really take much for me to be a happy camper, subtext and Ben getting whacked is enough, but thankfully I liked this more than just for that! ;) And yeah, it was good to have them in the same scene at all. Who cares what they were saying.

I'm with you on more Miles. I mean, is he background or what? I love him, I want more!

The only thing I can come up with Dan is that. Also because they need Des to be back into this mess and they can't do it otherwise... I think?

AND FRANK!!! LOL, I love that Frank is the one person everyone agrees on. He's just THAT awesome. *nodnod*
(Deleted comment)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost milesjanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 03:18 pm (UTC)
Sure! We can share her with Jin, how about it? ;) I've always liked Sun but lately she's been getting more and more awesome. The Ben thing was just a cherry on the cake! And teaming with Frank = perfection!

I think they did a good job there. S/K, I can't care less actually.

I MEAN, INDEED. I know they are because I'm spoiled and I think it's coming sooner than later but until now jeez, USE THE GUY. He has potential. I get that they need the comic relief but he can't be just that.
elliotsmelliot: Jack Julietelliotsmelliot on March 19th, 2009 02:39 pm (UTC)
So I'm just catching up my flist. So far 2 yays, one nay. I'm in your court and had almost identical reactions.

I cheered when Sun whacked Ben on the head and was so happy to see Frank. Then it was just a roll call of awesomeness with Hurley hugs and Sayid appearances. And wee! Ben is so much more tolerable (and yet creepy in his faux Harry Potter style) than current Ben.

Only disappointment: people, Hurley and Miles are better than just comic relief. When they will actually use them?

I know. Miles's story is begging to be told. How has he spent these three years? Is he bunking with Dan and Jin? I did appreciate that they played on Hurley's humanity, and had him want to warn the Dharma folks about their future massacre.

Radzinsky = total ass. God, I can just imagine him and Kelvin in the hatch... the dicks in a box OTP indeed. *rolls eyes*

No kidding! I bet Radzinsky killed himself on day 5 because they were just re-enacting a pissier version of the Old Couple.

I'm sorry to hear you are still getting tests! I hope everything is okay.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/julietjanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 03:24 pm (UTC)
For me it was two complete nays, some three yays and then maybe a couple of whatevers, but I'm definitely in the yay.

Word on Sun and Frank. God, when someone outwits Ben is always awesome, but Sun really did a great job this round. I'd rather have Harry Potter!Ben than adult!Ben any day but yeah, he does look creepy indeed. I can't wait to see how it plays.

Seriously, someone please give Miles an episode! At the beginning the comic relief could have worked but now they can't really get away with it much more. I appreciated the Hurley bits too but uhm, more please?

Oh God. The Oddest couple indeed, those two! I don't know for whom I should feel more sorry here. Probably for Desmond who got Kelvin AFTER Radzinsky thus probably making him even more insufferable.

Meh, I'm getting tests because I'm still on meds. *sigh* I seriously hope that the results are good and I can get off the stuff because I'm getting tired with it, but who knows. For how I feel like, I'm okay though. ♥
kind of an indoor girl: lostglycerineclown on March 19th, 2009 02:58 pm (UTC)
When they were getting their uniforms, I kept wondering if Jack was going to be a workman, like Roger the skeleton (bottoms up!) :P
the female ghost of tom joad: lost charliejanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 03:19 pm (UTC)
Well, I certainly hope Jack doesn't end up like Roger! ;)
Janice: mattjaydblu on March 19th, 2009 03:02 pm (UTC)
OMG your comment box is bubbly!? Or are those stones? Sorry, I digress.

#1 & 2: Sun! She knocked Ben out and I'm talking to the tv telling her to "go, girl!"
Frank was all kinds of awesome this episode, and he was lookin' kinda hot a little bit despite the blood and all. It's too bad they had to off the unknown, kinda cute, co-pilot.
#7: The Sawyer/Hurley hug = win. I waited for Jack and Sawyer to hug too. It was three years, come on writers! Show the boylove.
9 & 10: Agreed. A workman! And Juliet's like, "I'm in charge here." Tight polite smile. #12: That scene with the three was awesome. I also kinda liked how Jack took everything like a man, you know, he's like, "it's all good".
That said, I want to write Jack/Sawyer/Juliet *cough*.
Yeah. *nods* You absolutely should. I mean, I think I might read a little somthin' like that if you were so inclined. ;)
#13: Juliet is my favorite female these days (not that there's much of a choice). She needs to keep Kate away from her man.
#16: I know, Sayid!!! *hearts* And I think we all knew it was little!Ben with the sandwich. The previews for next week make me nervous and a little edgy, though.
#19: There was major Sawyer/Sayid eyefucking. It wasn't just you, I saw it too. I'm glad I was watching it without my husband, because I may have been nodding at the tv.
#23: Yesssss, Matthew is getting hotter. I don't know if it's the hair, or the fact that he looks so good in a suit, or the fact that I love him again, but yes. Yummmmm.

This was another episode that I really liked, because it left me wanting more. The previews for next week make me nervous though...
the female ghost of tom joad: lost sayid GUHjanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 03:29 pm (UTC)
LOL, new layout! Uhm, I think they are stones but I don't have an idea.

I was totally like GO SUN!!! Anyone whacking Ben out wins with me, but this round it was especially good. And yeah, Frank = HOT. I love Frank to bits. And I wanted to mention the cute co-pilot but forgot it. Boo, he was nice.

Word on the hugs. *sigh* Ah, they will get over the triangle mess one day.

LOL the Juliet tight polite smile was made of utter win.

I think I'll give it a shot in a short while. I really want to write the thing.

Word about Juliet. I've always loved her and while it's not much of a choice since there are like three women only now, she's my favorite too. Man, I miss Shannon. Sorry, I digress too. ;)

SAYID!!!! I knew it was him too. Oh God. I kinda loved the previews but I'm also half spoiled so I don't know how calm should I stay.

Good that I wasn't the only one seeing S/Sd because I mean, eyefuck galore!

I think that it's mostly the hair because he was hot also with the Dharma thing which isn't exactly the hottest stuff around. MMMM.

Oh, I was so like MORE, too! I want next week if only because I know it's Sayid centric. And Sayid is kinda still my second-favorite-character-tying-for-first. I just hope it's good and that they don't fuck things up.

I mean, I always thought MF was very good looking but this season he's just too handsome for his own good. I mean. That cut really does wonders on him. And yes he's back with Juliet! Who is acting as she should! And I don't have a thing to say about Kate at all. Everyone was pretty much mature throughout all this. It was such a happy episode indeed! And next week doesn't look too bad to me. Or well, it looks Sayid centric to me and that's enough as long as he doesn't die. ;) ;) And word about the last thing. Aw, Jack. ♥
twixcoffeecrisp7 on March 19th, 2009 05:28 pm (UTC)
8. Awwwww their reunion was super squee-worthy.... I adore those two so much <3 And I'm up for some awkwardness!

9. Bitch Juliet owns my life. Seriously. Especially when she's bitchy to Kate. I keep on hoping that she left her off the list on purpose to mess with her head :P
the female ghost of tom joad: lost julietjanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 05:51 pm (UTC)
LOL, the last part sounds good! I'm on board! ;)

And yeah, squee worthy reunion indeed! MM. Making icons tomorrow or today. Like, a lot of icons. -nod-
L: {lost} jack/julietneated on March 19th, 2009 06:26 pm (UTC)
OMG I could like copy everything you said and post it as my review. I did feel exactly the same way...

And the J/J reunion was so squeeworthy. Guh, I have hope again. (Gosh I'm so easy to get hopeful)

Desmond! Where the heck is he... I'm really starting to get worried.

23. !!!!!!!! WORD!!!1!!!!11! I can't even say how much that cut suits him... Just guh.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/julietjanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 09:48 pm (UTC)
Feel free to! ;)

Yeah, it was so good of a reunion! Right now I'd rather have a threesome and solve all my shipping problems but I know it's out of Lost's range. ;)

Des... yeah, wtf much? I hope that Faraday disappearing means he gets back into business.

And MF with that cut is just... GAAAAH. *dies*
alemyrddin: Jack Sawyer smirkalemyrddin on March 19th, 2009 09:04 pm (UTC)
1/2. Sun and Frank were both great ."I lied", lol.

7. I was hoping for more than a handshake, but there was eyefucking, Jack presumably undressing in front of Sawyer to put on his clothes... that's a nice enough image for me.
The Sawyer/Hurley hug was awesome!!

9. I loved how Juliet was bitchslapping her in her polite and understated way of hers. Go Jules!

10. I burst out laughing at that. It was Sawyer's sweet, teasing revenge. ;)

12. I LOVED IT. I agree with everything you said.
And please write that threesome!

14. You are right, but with so many character having a role in this episode, it was kind of hard. I hope soon, maybe, they will have a greater role.

16. I am very happy Sayid is in the past with them. I wonder if the mustard thing was a clue. Like, Sayid doesn't like mustard and young Ben somehow knows... (because someone else told him). I'm guessing Ben couldn't come back to the '70s because he was already there, maybe?

18. I think you are probably right. We'll see... we still have to know what happened to Des and Penny, and to Sayid before the plane.

20. Are you still sick? i thought they found out what was wrong and gave you a specially-targeted antibiotic for that? (did I miss something? If so, sorry - I know I've been hit and miss these last few months)

21. yay! Is it J/S/J?? *hopes* (j/S is more than enough though)

23. I SO agree. he looks younger and more gorgeous every week. I don't know if it was just his appearance, but Jack seemed to me happier and calmer than I've seen him in a long time. Either seeing Sawyer or, more likely,being back on the island does wonders for him!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/sawyer ♥janie_tangerine on March 19th, 2009 09:58 pm (UTC)
1/2) INDEED!

7) I hadn't thought about the undressing but yeah, that too. ;)

9) LOL, I love how she can be bitchy in that way. I came to appreciate it indeed.

12 and partially 21) I started it. ;) I think I need to find the right approach though, I'm not exactly convinced of what I have until now. But I'm writing that thing whatever it takes, surely I'll be on it this weekend.

14) Yeah, true too, but I was mostly referring about Miles. I mean, this season he's been awesome but it's not like he's done anything.

16) That's a point about Ben. I'm glad Sayid is there too at least also because he isn't with adult!Ben.

18) That's true too. And yeah, Des and Penny? Where they are?

20) I also kinda stopped posting about it too. ;)

(Okay, in inglese non riesco a formularla quindi taglio in italiano ;) praticamente la febbre è andata ma è saltata fuori una mezza gastrite almeno secondo il medico anche se io sarei scettica visto che non ho sintomi e un altro paio di cose che comunque non sono niente di particolarmente problematico, ma sto ancora prendendo medicinali e le analisi erano per vedere se sta funzionando o no, anche se secondo me non ho niente di che.. ma sia mai. ;) ) ♥

23. Seriously, what's with it? And yeah, totally agreeing about Jack looking calmer than in a long time. And looks like the island cures withdrawal? *rolls eyes* Ah well, I'm more than happy for him then.
Claire: Lost - Jack back to the startinluv4evr on March 20th, 2009 11:16 pm (UTC)
Aw man, I've missed Sayid as well! And Desmond has been gone for far too long. He needs to show up on the island ASAP.

Friending you, ok?
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack **janie_tangerine on March 20th, 2009 11:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, sure! No problem here, nice to meet you! ;)

And yeah, Desmond and Sayid need to have more screen time, possibly together. *cough*
