Lost in Chronologically Order

Following the podcast of Anna and Wendy:

Lost in Order

Episode 15 (2001)


In this episode, we see Desmond get himself a boat for a race around the world, and later he runs into Penny one last time before he gets to the island, and meets Jack in the stadium.  We also start our Jack/Sarah storyline.  Intertwined with that we have Shannon learning of her father's death and ultimately setting off to be on her own.  In the second half of the episode, Kate is arrested for the murder of her stepfather, and Sawyer pulls a long con on his girlfriend Cassidy.

Theme 1: Desmond's a bone head, but I guess the girls love the accent.

First, he screws up his relationship with Penny, then instead of picking up on Libby's pick up attempt, he fanagles a boat to run away on (to show that darn Widemore) instead of looking for a real life.

Then the moran throws away another chance with Penny who bothers to track him down ask why he didn't write (all he's gotta do is say, every day, your dad has them all!!!). 

What a jackass, prideful schmuck!

Why is he willing, or so consumed by his pathetic quest that he's willing to throw away the women he loves, who's right there in front of him practically begging for a reason to get back together.

This actually shows an uncanny resemblance to the 
that Roland, the last gunslinger, shows in his single minded obsession to find the Dark Tower.

"I have to get my honor back!"

Then of course is a great coincidence of meeting Jack, who just can't help competing with Desmond running the stairs.

Looks like Desmond can read and fix anybody else's girl problems

"And of course Jack doesn't believe in miracles.

"Good Luck Brother..See you in another life".

Theme 2: Jack saving his soon to be wife, Sarah show how great Lost was at creating dynamic scenes allowing good actors to shine.

And it doesn't hurt that Sarah (Julie Bowen) is way hot. Even the scenes with Shannon and Boone illustrate some good acting and direction. While I don't really connect to either Shannon nor Boone's storyline it's still good tv.

Theme 3: Why do beautiful women hook up with a holes!@?#@!

Sarah's fiance is the biggest d*ck wad and ranks right up their with the original Sawyer.

Theme 4: Jack gets some great scenes where he stands out as a hero (if a bit disfunctional)

Theme 5: Sawyer meets his match

Cassidy sees right through him

 Show me what you got?

Theme 6: Kate blows him up

Looks who here.

Too late for 2nd thoughts

I took care of you ma!

Enjoyment Factor:

I am really enjoying seeing everyone's 'back' story up front and all together. I thought I would see it as 'filler' or background but even as I eagerly await the airplane crashing on the Island, I am really loving the Lost story unfolding.
