1x06 "House of the Rising Sun"

Walt and the others are shocked when Michael is brutally beaten, but only the non-English-speaking Jin and Sun know the truth behind the attack. Meanwhile Kate, Jack, Sawyer and Sayid argue about where the survivors should camp -- on the beach, where they're more likely to be seen, or in a remote inland valley where fresh water abounds; and Locke discovers Charlie's secret.

A Jin/Sun-centric episode.

Next post/episode: Friday/1x07 "The Moth"

Note: I realized I haven't been participating much further then leaving my own comments, and this is because I didn't realize I had turned comment notifications off. Hopefully now I'll be able to add more commentary and we'll get a bit more lovely.

Jin, I reallllly fucking loathed the first couple episodes. I can't remember if I've said that before or not. XD

Kate is trying to look all cute AND FAILING SO EPICALLY THAT IT HURTS MY BRAIN TO COMPREHEND. I just. I hated her from the first time she talked. And then I kindda didn't hate her for like a day when she was scared and being chased by Smokey, but then I'm right back to hating her. She thinks she's so ~badass~ and that's not the way it works. Even Charlie is all "can you stop before I puke? Kthnx".

There is almost nothing more adorable then our first look at happy Sin. I want to cuddle them and have them adopt me or something. I started to love Jin here. I usually hate when characters are overly traditional and all RAWR MUST ASK EVEN IF I GET SHOT DOWN RAWR, but with Jin it just works and makes him incredibly endearing. At least to me.

Ya know, maybe Jin really didn't attack Michael over the damn watch. Maybe he was already sick of hearing him scream Walt. I know I was. Either way, we get basass Sayid and Sawyer running in and getting wet, so I'm pleased.

"How'd you find this place?" ---Kate to Jack. HMMM. Maybe he's not really seeing Christian? I said in the first episode that Jack seemed to know where everything was, expect everyone to know him, etc. Maybe Christian is just his minds way of telling him things that he already knows? So it could be one big loop?

Charlie freaking out over the bees is just adorable.

MICHAEL, YOU DUMBASS. Don't be getting no attitude with Sayid, he just saved your ass. But LOL @ Sayid talking down to him, because Michael has aboslutely no response to him saying he's from Takreet. And maybe Michael should stop stereotyping all Koreas. RUDE MICHAEL, RUDE. The black people and Korean's get along just fine where I live.

Sun with long hair is effin' gorgeous.

I think Adam and Eve are Rose and Bernard. It would just fit. Maybe? I DON'T KNOW. xD

Oh, and I'm a pansy so I would have stayed on the beach because I think there are less bugs there. Hahaha. I totally would have been like Shannon was had this happened to me. Minus the doing my nails.

Favorite Quotes:

"Oh, you guys have an inside joke. How wonderful for you both." Charlie
"You two run away fantastically." Charlie
"Short walk. They lied." Hurley

Sawyer Nicknames:
Sayid - Omar, Captain Falafel
Kate - Freckles

My opinion of Sun's and Jin's relationship has definitely changed as both characters have changed. Sun has become more independent and Jin is no longer an over-bearing and controlling husband.

I would have definitely gone to the caves. Not only is the fresh water there but the only doctor and hunter are there too.

I love how Shannon refers to the caves later as the "rape caves". I swear, everytime I hear it I laugh.

Charlie is just too amazing for words. I'm going to bawl like a baby in later eps. :(
