I understand, I do. You want answers, and you think that you’re not getting them. You’ve waited all this time, and you think your entitled. But let me put a chink into the denial that is camouflaging your LOST answers addiction. The answers you want (or that I want) don’t matter to the majority of the main characters.
Like who got shot in the canoe, our LOSTies flashed in and out of the time frame so fast, they had no idea who was shooting at them, or who they shot. So, while it would be cool to pull a LOSTie loop and have Juliet gun down Sawyer, it just isn’t important to the remaining LOSTies who was in the canoe. Chalk it up to Widmore goons and be done with it, for you own good.
While you let the denial fade over your answers addiction, here is a modified Serenity prayer just for you.
Damon and Carlton (or your own higher power) grant me the Serenity
to accept the answers that you have written
the courage to develop some answers of my own
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Watching one episode at a time
Enjoying on scene at a time
Accepting character arcs as their pathway to peace
Taking, as all fans have, this wonderful show
as it is, not as I would have it
Trusting that the show will be incredible
if I surrender to it’s awesomeness
That I may be reasonably happy in this season
and supremely happy with rewatches of the DVDs
forever in the future.
Shamelessly reimagined from this
