bird's nest in the front, electroshock therapy in the backWahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! You rock, Blam.
Poor Claire. We (as in me cornering anyone who is foolish enough to get in my path) have been discussing Claire and her sickness a lot these past few days. I don't think she is all that crazy. That's not right...she's crazy with a point. Lucid Crazy. That dude was going to break her neck! That's crazy. Chopping him in the stomach is crazy too but...girl's gotta get by in this crazy work-a-day world. Plus, he started it!And her skull baby - we all thought Rousseau was a NutBar when we saw her and her weird self and her traps. And she wanted to steal Claire's baby. Rousseau wasn't infected...and even she had no idea that Alex was 16 and not a baby anymore. I bet from years 4 to 10 that she had a Skull Baby too. A Skull Baby isn't that weird. Ha! No really, it isn't - look at Tom Hanks in Castaway. He was there for like a mildly unpleasant 16 hours and he made a doll person. He was lucky and got a bloody ball (which is weird) but maybe Claire doesn't have that much available to her. Look at the penguins for God's sake! The adorable penguin will lose a baby and it will try to steal a baby from another one! We don't call that crazy, we call it grief. I am so sick of penguins and their free ride.Also, what a dummy Jin is. Here is a lady with no concept of time or history who is obviously more than a little crazy (but not sick) and you tell her "Kate took Aaron". Smooth move Jin.
Smooth move Jin.To be fair, his foot was pretty mangled; that had to hurt. The whole time he was in Claire's hit he was probably thinking "damn, I miss the 70s..."Keen insights as always, Blam. It definitely seems like the threads of the two realities are drawing closer together. It'll be interesting to see how they meet and what happens when they do. "Shove it, Mr. Linus! You're not my father!"That would be AWESOME!
Claire's *hut* rather, not her hit. Though hit isn't too much of a stretch...Worf verif: wow, really? 'Butholed'. I'm just going to leave that one alone...
Ha! I know you're a fan of Ms. de Ravin and I assume you're a fan of Evil Santas (who isn't though, really)- I think I just found you a new favorite movie!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa%27s_Slay
Awesome post, Blam.I also didn't find Claire "crazy," but at the same time I found her "crazy." It's weird. It's like Joan said…crazy with a point. Blam—I agree! Jack's son did look a lot like Jack! (okay, and a little like a Jo Bro). It made me think of young Ben. The casting directors do an excellent job of finding kids to play young versions of the characters!
This was Episode 108, by the way, Blam. (I know you know that now, actually, but was surprised you didn't mention it.) All the stuff you brought up was insightful, but for me the biggest, most obvious motif was the reflections and the revelation of that magic mirror just knocked my socks off. You should check out screencaps of the wheel when you can (and Claire's totem baby if you dare).
@Teebore: "Worf verif:" Great typo! "So how do I know you're really Worf?""If you were any other man, I would kill you where you stand.""Let 'im through."
I don't know if Claire's beyond-the-pale crazy, but it's hard to know if she's "legitimately" loopy due to her isolation and perceived stolen child because of the other factors. Sure, as a mom, this is a nightmare, but she also seems kind-of kind of content with her "father" and her "friend". Her mood swings seem pretty severe. And since at least her "friend" is Man in Black, plus there's the whole infection/claimage thing (likely but not for sure connected to him), we can't just look at this and say, "How would you be alone on the Island after three years?"
Good evening, Blam Stoker's Dracula! I see you have posted two new articles but they aren't showing up :(
I'm workin' on it, Joanie Crawford Loves Chachi...
Ha! Is it really "forever hold your piece"? I though it was "peace". If it is piece, what are they referring to? Your piece of grievance? Or it is something infinitely cooler like pistol?
