Dude... thoughts on LOST|
I have to say that for some reason I think Charlie is so much more attractive now that he's indifferent as to whether people like him. Not so needy, I guess. I loved it in the last ep when he's hiking to the balloon and gives the gun to Sayid after teasing Sexpot Nubmer Two with it. And his attitude this week during his scenes was more of the same. That attitude that says "Who needs you?" is far sexier on him than "Please like me!" He doesn't need to please people anymore because they think they know him and they all expect the worst from him, so why fight it? I hope the producers keep him this way for a bit because it makes sense, given what he's been through.
Well-said! His need for approval and attention was very annoying. Huh! You're right - he can't be any "worse" now. Let's just hope he doesn't go all the way to the Sawyer route. *G*
I just hope that he doesn't eventually get found out and voted off the island. If it happens, you know he's going to end up with the others. That's the only reason for his part of the con to exist. I can see everyone being really spooked by the "Sun" part of that con. Of course Sawyer safe as long as he has the guns, but if they get desperate enough, they'll find a way to make him talk.
Funny thing about Sawyer is that his behavior IS based on a need for attention, even if it is negative attention since he doesn't feel worthy of being liked or loved. I think his hoarding supplies is his way of making sure people HAVE to talk to him at one point or another, otherwise he would have tried harder to keep it a secret, like Hurley did with the food. That's why I find his behavior unattractive.
In "The Long Con", though, his need for attention took a back seat to his need to strike out at the people who he felt had hurt and betrayed him. That's why I kind of liked him in that epsisode, despite, or maybe because, of what we saw in the flashback. He's so damaged, it's sad.
"found out"? You mean, for attacking Sun? Whoa... and Sawyer, of course, knows this and can use it against him at any time for blackmail.
Hmmm... a need for attention? Maybe. Maybe the difference is that it's more of a need to be in control, have all the cards, be on top of the situation. Unless he makes sure people need him he feels insecure. Perhaps?
Gotta admit...it's all getting pretty confusing. *G*
Yeah, you're right, he definitely has control issues, though they are dwarfed by Jack's and Locke's. *G*
Confusing is right! And it is starting to get really creepy again, which I like. Guess that's why I like Dark Charlie...
I swear... he is so much like (darn, I'm going blank on the first name) Skywalker turning into Darth... even down to the hoodie! I keep telling myself I'm going to do an icon of that some day... If nothing else, when they're annoying, they're both annoying in the same way - *L*!
