Forget Tricia Tanaka—Who Remembers Joanna Miller?!

Posted by Marisa May 8th, 2009 at 10:30am In I'm Sick of Your Shit Lost

Warning: The post is filled with Lost spoilers.

A list of characters I remember who have died on Lost:

Alex (shot by Keamy)
Leslie Arzt (blew up)
Mikhail Bakunin (speared)
Boone Carlyle (falling death)
Michael Dawson (‘sploded)
Naomi Dorrit (knifed)
Mr. Eko (monster mashed)
Daniel Faraday (killed by mom)
Paulo & Nikki (razzle-dazzle)
Neil “Frogurt” (flaming arrow)
Scott Jackson (or was that Steve?)
Keamy (shot by Ben)
Charlotte (unstuck in time)
Claire Littleton (maybe?)
Ana Lucia & Libby (shot by Michael)
Joanna Miller (pointlessly drowned)
Nathan (neck snapped by Goodwin)
Seth Norman (monster snack)
Charlie Pace (hero’s death)
Ethan Rom (shot for revenge)
Danielle Rousseau (ambushed)
Shannon Rutherford (shot by Ana Lucia)
Goodwin Stanhope (impaled by Ana Lucia)

That’s not counting all of the Oceanic and Ajira passengers that didn’t make it through the crashes to begin with, anonymous Others who died in random shootouts,  everybody else on the freighter, passers-by who were killed by Lost characters in their adventures off the island, people who seem to have dissipated into thin air (Rose? Bernard? Vincent?), or any of the people in the Lostpedia list that I’ve barely heard of.

So, when Jack asks Kate for one good reason why he shouldn’t detonate a hydrogen bomb, the correct answer is, “Because you’re going to kill the few of us that are left.” Not, “Because then we never would have met.” I’m sorry, Kate. Your pissy, on-again, off-again romance with Jack is not worth the life of one Frogurt, let alone someone like Boone (who, we all remember, is God’s Friggin Gift to Humanity). I’d want to set off the bomb just to stop you from whining.

No, I will not talk to the hand, Kate.

    I am sure Kate is actually thinking “I just don’t want to go to prison” which is exactly where she’ll end up.

    If you want to be fair to Kate, she’s probably horrified that her time with Aaron might get annulled, but as I don’t want to be fair to Kate, both the prospect of prison and the memory of cage sex are probably foremost in her mind.

    Yea I totally agree. Last episode was an interesting juxtaposition between Jack and Kate. Kate likes her life after the original crash. Things were not going well for her before, and since the crash she has become rich, had a son (sort of), and fallen in love (with Jack and Sawyer both). All this happened after facing the prospect of being in jail for murder for a very long time.

    Jack, who had a perfect life before the crash, has lost his job, become an alcoholic, tried to kill himself, began seeing his dead dad in a lot of places, and generally had a rough go of things.

    The crash was the start of both of these respective journeys forward and backward.

    What happens next? Well, I’m of the opinion that there has to be some kind of explanation for Christian’s role on the island before the show can wrap up. That’s where the show has to go. If we are to agree with the logic that setting off the bomb will prevent the crash (which I’m not totally sold on), then they cannot set off the bomb because then Christian would never make it to the island, and what fun would the show be if the final answer is just “yea, you know this show you’ve been watching for the past five years? Yea, none of that ever happened. The flight never crashed and they made it to LAX safe and sound. Thanks for watching”. Seriously, I can’t think of a less satisfying ending….
