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.

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.

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. ♥
