LOSTathon: Season 3

Season 3 of LOST starts out with Jack, Kate, and Sawyer being captured by The Others, and only gets more complicated and action-packed from there. The first two seasons of the show are sort of slow and mysterious, building suspense and confusion until this season when a ton of action and betrayal (and more general confusion) occurs. The plots and intentions of all the characters get really twisty in this season - more than before [duh duh duhhhh]. Desmond does a lot of time traveling in this season, there's also more flashback stories and the first flash forward occurs at the end of the season. The end of  season 3 is also when Jack calls the people on the freighter, while the audience is informed that it is Not Penny's Boat

Other LOST ladies:

Sarah at Spellbinding Nails

pointer - abstracted corner of the DHARMA logo from the van that Hurley and Charlie take a joy ride in (I love this little story so much)
middle - diamonds and the Medusa spider on some sand (you know, for burying people alive in...)
ring - a (semi-crappy) tape manicure of the radio tower on the hill for the end of the season
pinkie - Ben's white rabbit and explaining the device in Sawyer's chest to him (this nail is supposed to be textured and 'furry' seeming, btw)
thumb - NOT PENNYS BOAT (pretend this is written on the wittle hand I managed to draw)

Hoorays about Season 3

  • Charlie's 5 greatest moments of his life [also, see: "all the tears I cry all season are because of Charlie"]
  • Juliet - I actually really like her and her smug smirk and her know-it-all-ness; I think she plays all of her roles really well (her flip flopping sides back and forth forever entertained me)
  • I love to hate the Nikki & Paulo story arch! It's one of those small things that I think about all the time; the fact that they get buried alive haunts me

Nays about Season 3 - mostly I found this season really stressful and sort of upsetting
  • Jack's weird storyline about the tattoos in Thailand - meh
  • Jin's flashback stories about dealing with Sun's Dad's drama :(
  • Eko dies :'(
  • Locke loses faith in the island, has weird visions, and is mute for a bit = strange
  • NOT PENNY'S BOAT :'(  - omg Charlie - I might be tearing up right now writing this...
  • Kate + Sawyer does not please me; I almost don't like her with anyone because even with Jack she's annoying. I guess I appreciate her as a lone woman (she's so badass!), not when she gets emotionally tied to people in romantic situations (her conflicted feelings just seem to annoy me)

  • Karl getting brainwashed - redonkulous
  • finding out that there are two islands - Hydra Island and the Losties' island
  • the fight at the Flame station
  • getting introduced to the sonar fence
  • that crazy [pretend?] thing they implant in Sawyer's chest
  • Naomi (getting a knife in the back) and the freighter
  • Ben freakin' shoots Locke and leaves him in a mass grave - what?!
  • Alex meeting her biological mother (finally)
  • Mikhail. Ugh. Mikhail.
