How the death's were handled...
« on: May 05, 2010, 03:19:18 AM »
Man, I'm bummed - I thought Sayid deserved to go out a little better than that - not just here one minute, the next running down the passageway and then BOOM.  How about some slow motion and emotive music?

And Jin and Sun - somehow their scenes together this week and last didn't do it for me.  Maybe Jin speaking english changes the chemistry between them but the reunion last week was done poorly (too short before Zoe pulled the guns) and them talking in the cage was good but the death scene was a little corny again - like Jin wants to stay with Sun ok but neither of them is thinking of their about-to-be-orphaned daughter?

Other than that this episode was great, I just wish that they'd done those bits a little bit better.

For some reason Sun and Jin's demise was reminiscint of the scene with Jack and Rose in Titanic. I'm a softie so I did cry cuz all I kept thinking about was their little girl who will never see her parents...ugh!!!!

Was sad to see Sayid go as well. It was too quick, I agree...and it made me wonder...was he ever really "infected" at all??

Yes and there they will raise their daughter together from her birth on.

If that time line stays in tact....

Sayid at least went out a hero. Not a bad ending for a zombie.

Totally agree with that.. it really had that epic Titanic feel to it.. and I cried so bad..  Was also expecting Sun to tell Jin he needed to go to be with Ji Yeon.

Do we know for sure Frank is dead?  Besides not seeing him wash up on the beach with Hurley, Kate, Jack and Sawyer I mean..

I liked how they handled Sayid's death. Let's face it, he's been pretty much a loner through the entire run of the series. His only emotiional connection was to Nadia, and she had already died. Sayid's always been a no-nonsense, take charge type of guy, and that's exactly what he did to the very end...I didn't need to see any slow motion running with haunting music, I much preferred seeing the cool, take-charge Sayid make his presence known one last time, and go out a hero.

I'm kind of torn over this. I'm really glad that the writers have decided to sack up and start murdering people, but like james_sawyer said, it's not that hard to kill someone, when they will still be alive. The thing that kills me about all of this though is why they didn't kill Kate. The writers missed a really good opportunity to get rid of her at the hands of Widmore's crew, and totally blew it. But I guess that's why I'm not in charge of LOST.

I thought the Sun/Jin ending was decently done...I guess.  My wife kept asking why Sun didn't try to wriggle out of her pants, and I was expecting her to tell Jin to go take care of their daughter, but for whatever reason, they didn't go that route.

Sayid's death was indeed quick, but at least he died doing something worthwhile.  Lapidus got one last one-liner, and then went out like a punk.  I expected more for his character.

It wasn't just her pants leg caught on something, was it? I thought it was some metal railings pinning her against the wall.

It was the railings, but she wasn't bleeding, so it looked like her pants were still intact, and she could've at least tried to get loose.
