Richard Lives!
« on: May 19, 2010, 12:59:28 AM »
I just had to do it.
He's not dead. A little Smokie toss, can't take him out.

I hope you are right, because he totally just got Boba Fetted.

edit: Here I am thinking I'm original and Roman122 beat me to it.

Agreed.  It would be just too weird of an ending for Richard if that was it.

It is how Illana went out.

Yeah, but Ilana wasn't a part of the core group.  I think Richard has moved into that group and to have him killed like that would be a little weird.  The other difference for Ilana is that her death left no doubt.  They didn't even show Richard's body after he was "Boba Fetted" (to stay with the theme.)

True, you make a good point about Illana. But Sayid kinda went out in the same way. Although it could be said he was dying from the inside out for awhile before he went boom.

I won't be 1 bit shocked to see Richard again, either as a ghost or surviving the toss.

Not quite, Illana and Sayid exploded and Richard was pushed off screen. Tina Fey had her throat cut, Widmore was shot like 4 times. If it not shown on screen or there is no body, then there is no death.

I really hope they would have more consideration for Richard. If they were going to kill him they should have done it better. IMO I don't think he is dead. I hope he shows up right at the end when everyone has given up on him  :D

If he's dead...what did he die for?  ;)

I think Smokey just swept him off stage for a minute. Although, like I said on chat last night, Richard lived for a very long time and wanted to die at the end of it all but couldn't - maybe it was so swift just to punctuate that he is finally "released" and can be with his wife?

Eko was one of my favorite characters way back and I hated how he went out!  Richard was another one for me.  I've lost track of who MIB was able to kill and who he couldn't, but Richard was definitely afraid of him in past scenes (the famous 'run away in mid-sentence' scene comes to mind'), so maybe he had something to fear.  I hope not, lame ending for an epic character.  :-\

Richard always had fear when confronted with danger so I beleive he knew he could die. Smokey probably would know too if he was able to be killed so wouldn't have even bothered with Richard if he didn't think he could kill him.

He would have bothered with him if he needed him out of the way to get to Ben.

I think he's dead.  I think that's just where they are at this point...killing everyone off that they don't need.  I just can't believe they did that to Richard.  He was one of my favorites and I really wanted him to live to the end.

Not dead. I don't think Jacob's "curse" is off just because Jacob is dead. Ricardo can't die, Jacob made is so.
