Waaaaaaaaah!!!! - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"
Major Desmond episode... and significant Charlie.
Lot of alternating "Charlie is so cuuuute!" and "Charlie can really be a creep!" moments.
Wait... is Charlie busking before or after Driveshaft? I'm thinking this must be after Driveshaft... but if that's the case - wouldn't his answer to Desmond be "Of course - you know me from Driveshaft"? Although... it was 2 years before Desmond entered the race, I think, and 3 more years that he was on the island... I guess it *could* have been before Driveshaft.
Good god, but Desmond is REALLY looking good here. Only thing: who in the world ever heard of a TANNED Scotsman?
"David Hume" Desmond? Yes, folks, we have ANOTHER philosopher!
Oh, god... I thought this might be the case when I saw/heard teasers for tonight's episode. "You're gonna die..." Originally I thought from the teasers that they meant Charlie... then I realized it must be Claire... and now we know.
BTW... Kimmel asked Dom if Charlie was going to get killed off, or if he wanted to, or how he'd feel if he was, and Dom said he wouldn't mind if it meant Charlie died doing something good.
Ah, well... here's hoping something better is already in the works for him.

I thought Charlie busking was before Driveshaft, because he made a comment to the crowd when Desmond was freaking out on him, something like "This is why we don't do drugs." And he seemed very clear-headed and clean.
I thought the same thing about a "tanned Scotsman." hehe Especially one who's been in a hole in the ground for three years.
*L*! Thanks for reminding me of that VERY ironic comment...!
Yep. Hmmmm... perhaps they had a lifetime supply of ... what was that lotion you could put on yourself for an instant tan - that turned you orange instead? *G*
p.s. And he was singing "Wonderwall" by Oasis... a British band known, if I remember correctly, for battling brothers. And I keep thinking I either heard Dom or "Charlie" make a comment about Oasis (putting them down).
And... he didn't sound great, but... he didn't sound horrible - *L*! Of course, you guessed who it was right away, too, didn't you?
Dude - word up! *G*
And, yes, they did say that... but that was back when the LOST cast was the happiest cast in the world. I wonder now if Dom wants to leave, for some reason?
I avoided spoilers, promos, everything, like I do each week. So I was totally floored when it came to the end. I thought it was all about Claire, but then he said it was Charlie and...well..I just sat there staring at the TV screen saying OMGTHEYCAN'T! Of course, if it means it opens up possibilities for Dom to get
better more work, I am all for it. They have not given him the time he deserves on this show. He is capable of so much more then they have given him, and it just breaks my heart that they are not using his talent to the fullest. So if they do kill him off soon, which is sounds like they will, I really hope he finds something that will let him shine the way we all know he can.
As for timing, I assume this was before Driveshaft. We know it was a while before the race, which was quite some time before the flight crashed, so yeah, I think it was before.
So, back to Charlie for a moment...how and when do you think this will occur? (And if you or anybody else knows any spoilers please don't tell me!) If they will not let his character survive somehow, then I hope it's a season finale sort of thing, really big and heroic.
This depresses me, though, because I was hoping we would see some of the struggles with Charlie and the drugs. I had thought we were supposed to see him become much darker, and get back on the drugs, but that never really panned out. He would do such a wonderful job if they allowed him to play that out. (Yes, we're back to me being upset that they are screwing Dom over.)
EVen when/if they do kill Charlie, I will continue to watch the show through to it's completion. I am in too far now. *G* I need to know how it's resolved.
Well, it's obvious, isn't it? *puts on a straight face* I mean, Sawyer is SO going to kill him when he gets back and sees what's happened to his STASH!!!!!! *LOL*!!!!!
Really, Charlie, how SLEAZY can you get? "Oh, I'm sure it's what Sawyer would have wanted!" Riiiiiight.
Well, I won't say they've wasted Dom, since it's the nature of an ensemble show to have to share the spotlight. They've given him a lot of good lines, and some very dramatic moments, along with some very funny ones. Makes a great demo reel for auditions - *G*. I think he's got enough pull with Abrams to get the exit he'd like - so it should be a good one.
Actually, when you think about it - Charlie was really supposed to die back when he got "hung" by Ethan.
I have to admit - they've really piqued my interest in the Others. They appear to be able to leave - and yet not. There's something going on that makes the Others desperate enough to kidnap babies, leave Charlie to hang, torture people, kill people. But what is it? Is it that there's something gone terribly wrong that they're trying to correct, or what?
And how the hell did the woman at the jewelry store happen to know everything? Or was it all in Desmond's head? It had to be. She had to be part of his subconscious talking to him. What do you think?
Oh, and Dom confirmed on his Kimmel interview that some of the actors have been told "what it's all about". To be honest, though, it sounded a bit like it was a letdown. I wonder if it's possible that Dom decided to get off so he wouldn't be around for the backlash...
Personally, now that they've singled Charlie out it's too easy. They have to have some sort of twist. Anyway, he's already died on the show once.
Yep. Perhaps they did this just to excite us fangirls - get us all worked up so we'll watch the show religiously.
And, of course - how will this affect Charlie? Will it turn him into a saint - "I'm going to die, so I'll try to make up for my mistakes now and go out good" - or a devil - "OMG, I'm going to die - time to go do the rest of my drugs and LIVED WILDLY!" - or just get terribly depressed.
Hi, me=crying if they kill of Charlie...he's been such a target since they started this show! I think the world needs to take a substitute person, leave poor Charlie alone! I started watching this show because of Dom, and I kept watching this show because I liked it, but if they kill him off then I may be tempted to boycott! It's gotten a little wacky and their stupid break was so annoying!!!! I've been a little frustrated with the whole show lately.
*chants* Keep Charlie Alive! Keep Charlie Alive! Keep Charlie Alive!
I know... remember the good old days, when Locke was crazily mesmerizing, and polar bears kept popping up, and the trees swayed crazily?
It's gotten a little too - normal. And I would definitely miss Dom!
Yeah I know! Where's all the weird stuff now!? It has gotten to be totally normal. The whole, who is sleeping with who, who loves who...really too Soap Opera for me!
Give me crazy polar bears, creapy noises and trees that move on their own...
