I agree that the best treatment would of happened with her shirt off.

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!

I just don't get why people seem to find her so annoying that they're rooting for her to die.  Evangeline Lilly's attractiveness aside, I guess I sort of like her character.  In a way, Kate has probably had the least evolution of all the characters, but I find that endearing in a way - she's always stayed true to form - even if she can't make up her mind between Sawyer and Jack.  But between all of the female characters on the show, Kate is the first one I'd want by my side in a tough situation.

Seriously?  She screws everything up!  Goes where she's been specifically told not to go and then loses guns and gets everyone captured and all kinds of stuff like that! 

I'd take Sun or Rousseau in a heartbeat.  Except, of course, they're dead... which may or may not be a problem...

She is the last one i 'd want on my side cause I be afraid she would have a moment of where is my heart....   If anyone Sun would be on my side and Wild Claire..Juliette and Danielle were good too

I cringed....

We all know it would take more than a bullet to kill Kate...but just the fact she was hurt...

Long Live Kate...

Maybe Kate will make the ultimate sacrifice and prove herself a tragic hero.  Then everybody is happy.   ;D

Kate will be Jacobs replacement, She raised Aaron for 3 years and became his mother. She made a huge good will jester by comming back to the island to rescue Claire and reunite them. If that's not being good enought for Jacob to win his $1 bet, then I dont know what is.

I will kill myself if Kate becomes the replacement.

Most of the candidates had either killed or almost killed someone prior to coming onto the island. So they ALL would have to redeem themselves. The fact that Sawyer - who killed an innocent man - is still on The List indicates to me that Jacob clearly wasn't looking for the most virtuous people. Whether Kate has made amends for her crimes by raising Aaron is irrelevant.

Dont forget Jacob said, people came to this island with a chance to leave thiri life behind them...I think thats a key point...live a new life, except to serve the island, Jack seeme to be the only person to realize that...Kate has Claire on her mind with reuniting her with Aaron...I'm glad she's not dead too..
