Death count tonight
« on: May 05, 2010, 12:08:31 AM »
So we have Sun, Jin, Sayid and Lapidus all dead correct.
Why did they ever have lapidus on this show. he had some good lines but he served no purpose at all.

Yeah maybe the only thing was to hold out hope that they could fly away.

Maybe as a kind of red herring to make us believe that he was there to get them off the island on the plane?
Or...he's not really dead yet?  And he will get them off on the plane?  The plane isn't blown up (yet), and they did not show Lapidus dead.

Lapidus may not be dead.

Yeah, I think Chesty / Kenny Rogers bought the farm.  He was either killed outright from that bump on the head, or was knocked unconcious and didn't make it out of the sub.  Too bad no one on board wanted to save Frank.

Well if you watch lost untangled. The puppet said that: killing Sayid is dead together with Jin & Sun. But he didn't mention Burt Reynolds ;) is dead.

However, I liked Lapidus a lot, even if he is used as a red herring.

I really liked Lapidus.  But he's gone now. :(

The same 4 people Michael was asked to bring back to the Others.

I wonder if that list was really from Jacob, or if it was from MiB?

MIB (at least now) doesn't seem concerned with Kate.  At the time, I thought the Others were not concerned with Hugo - he was brought as a messenger - not really part of the group.  Jack and Sawyer seem to be the important ones in common to both MIB and Jacob.

Also, isn't Claire on the "living" list - she was with MIB as he went off to finish what he started.

Well, he might have served no purpose, but I mean you could say that about so many other people as well. Libby, Anna Lucia, Rose, Bernard, etc. Hell, even one of the key character on the show (and your favorite), Kate serves no real purpose. After last night's episode, we were basically told that she serves no purpose from now on. I don't think this is something we need to concern ourselves with. Television is filled with unnecessary characters.

I still say that was just Ben putting pieces into place to get Jack to perform the operation on him.

I laughed last night when it was just the four of them, I then said, isn't it funny that it's these four.  The same four from three years ago on the dock.

It's always good to keep a pilot handy when you're trying to get off an island, so I think his character served a purpose.  He had some good lines, too.  I loved how no matter what was happening around him, he always stayed cool.  At least he did up until Smokie arrived and he did a 'modified stationary panic' in the cage!   ;D

I like the Lapis character, the one who should have been on the plane, but wasn't. I did stop caring about any character this year because I think they are all going to die. In one universe or another each one choose to kill, harm, steal, lie, cheat, and other things considered bad, evil, shall we say a sin.  Lapis was redeemed? Who knows.

Eye candy serves a purpose.

She was an original cast member. Have not understood why they added lapidus and miles. Just crowded the show so far.
