I've never really hated Kate but when she first got shot I was okay with her dying.  But then when everyone else died I was glad she was still alive because that's just too many people getting killed off in one night.

I also have no issue with Kate. I do feel she's been under utilized this season. So if she were to die, it wouldn't bother me.

The only way it could have been better...other than a few inches to the right...would be if it went through Kate and then hit Claire. Maybe in the head, 'cause she's a little shorter.

That woman must be related to MIB seriously she gets shot but not in the heart.  OMG I was like Die WOMAN DIE  that was one character we could have said bye bye now.... Okay she and Claire live together in alternate life. :D  Throwing in a fantasty for her loyal fans.

It's funny, as soon as she was shot, I had some initial shock, then I thought, "I know a few people that are probably pretty happy about this." When she dropped, I thought she was a goner, so I'm glad she was only wounded. The shot was dangerously close to being worse, and I'll quote Carey Elwes in the Princess Bride, "There is a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage hers."

Why is everyone so down on Kate?

Besides, with Ilana and Sun gone, and Claire preggers/zombiefied, she's the last hope for male fantasies on this show! :)

MacThree-
you all can have your fantasies about Kate.  Go for it...
Frankly the character has lacked substance for a long time.  She runs from everything and it is just not something I enjoy about her character.
the actress is very attractive and I can see the attraction for the audience that is attracted/turned on by her.

but my reasons are soley based on character and the character just lacks. ;) :D

See LiL, I disagree, and I swear that it's not just because she's hot (I actually have always preferred Claire)!!!  ;)  I think that she has issues, but in Season 5 when she decided to come back to the Island to save Claire, that's when she started to redeem herself and act unselfishly for the first time.

Yes, she is annoying because she wavers and is selfish and runs, but what I like about that character is that I believe it is a very human trait to be selfish and run from things and be afraid to face them and deal with them -- that's why, honestly, I can relate to her.  I think women tend to be more frustrated by her because they see her as being a weak character and only there as a sex symbol and get frustrated by her going between Jack and Sawyer, and I totally get that from a feminist perspective.

I feel the same way about Jack - I know a lot of folks are driven crazy about him because of all his flaws, but I feel like that's what makes him relate-able - his stubbornness and inability to let go are such annoying character traits, but they are very real and are meant to make us step back and see it that way.

There just simply are not enough Princess Bride quotes on these boards... or anywhere, for that matter.  Bravo!
