September 22 2016 marks the twelfth anniversary of Lost – a show that is still the subject of some of the most interesting (if not frustrating!) discussions in entertainment history.
For six years, we followed the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 as they raced through the jungles chasing after phantoms, ran from black smoke monsters and confronted their deepest, darkest secrets. We feverishly discussed the theories we thought were most evident, only to be proven wrong in following episodes. And most of all, we loved, laughed and cried with every single one of the protagonists throughout its six year run.
There are certain moments on Lost that are so overwhelmingly emotional, we will never be able to erase them from our minds. So, in celebration of the upcoming anniversary, we invite you all to grab a box of tissues and relive some of Lost’s most important scenes with us.
3. You Got it, Blondie (The Incident, Part II)
Being trapped on an island with no means of rescue or escape is one thing; being kept prisoner is a whole other ball game. Prior to the flight 815 crash, Juliet had already been on the island for three years, working as a fertility specialist for the Others. Agreeing to work for them meant breaking all ties with her friends and family for six months; or so they said. In the entire time she spent on the island, standing by helplessly as pregnant women kept dying, no matter how advanced her medical expertise, she was denied all contact with her loved ones – most importantly, her sister Rachel.
After being sent to infiltrate the survivors of the crash, Kate and the rest turn against her, but they soon come to realize that all she wants is to return home. After Locke turns the wheel and the people remaining on the island find themselves travelling back and forth in time, Juliet, Sawyer and Jin eventually settle in the Dharma camp of 1974. For the first time, Juliet finds happiness on the island – with Sawyer. They create a home together and lead a happy life, until the Oceanic Six return to finish what they started, and detonate the Swan Station’s hydrogen bomb. As they all set out to do so, a tragic accident traps Juliet beneath the shambles of the Swan structure. Sawyer manages to get to her and holds her in her final moments. When she asks him to kiss her, he looks deep into her eyes one last time, and complies with a, “You got it, Blondie.”
Sawyer and Juliet had managed to build a life for themselves, one in which they could finally live in peace and harmony. And although Juliet couldn’t shake the feeling Sawyer was just biding time until Kate showed up once again, his love for her was real.
