LOSTathon: Season 5

No big surprise, but most of us focused on the 'Lefties' - those of the Losties that were left behind and had to travel through jumps in time after the wheel at The Orchid station gets stuck. I was really enamored with the storyline of the 'Lefties' being left in the 1970s - which also happens to be the same time that Jack and the Oceanic 6 (minus Aaron + Locke's body + Ben) return during. We get to explore time travel and the ancient history of the island during this season; I really loved the time travel in this season quite a bit! We also get to know more about the 3 new characters brought by the freighter - Daniel (an incredibly smart physicist), Miles (who can communicate with the dead), and Charlotte (a cultural anthropologist who actually lived on the island with her DHARMA Initiative parents when she was little). There's a lot of other details we get to learn about the characters, which I also enjoyed.

Other LOST ladies:
Bee at Bee Polished
Debbie at The Crumpet
Kirsten at Geeky Owl

pointer - Charlotte's nosebleed
middle - Juliet's DHARMA mechanic jumpsuit in the 1970s
ring - me using Sawyer's new identity as LaFleur as an excuse to use a new glitter polish :p
pinkie - 70s inspired needle drag
thumb - the frozen wheel

Hoorays about Season 5

  • Sawyer (or LaFleur) + Juliet = yay!
  • this season is especially cool, because you get to put together a lot of interesting puzzle pieces and watch the Losties in the past trying to survive (like Kate delivering Claire's baby)
  • Jin is alive :D (and now Sun knows it!!)
  • Jacob's appearance in everyone's lives 
  • Locke is ~*magically*~ alive on the island again [after seeing below - Ben totally strangles him]

Nays about Season 5
  • Juliet dies, and Sawyer (LaFleur) is le sad :'(
  • Ben kills Locke!
  • Ben also kills Jacob :(

  • Bernard and Rose have been living happily on the island :D
  • Daniel gets shot and killed by his own mother :o/
