Ok, so one of my online friends gets on me for being so down on Jack. I have to totally admit TWoP has influenced me a great deal (on their Lost forums) so I feel bad I didn’t dislike him this bad last season.
But then…he did start getting on my nerves by the end of the season. I remember at being furious at him for dragging Hurley, Sawyer and Kate into a known trap with the others and not even telling them his brilliant strategy for escaping their planned fate (as well as not telling them they were heading into a trap at all). Oh, and when I say brilliant that consisted of him asking Sayid to hang around offshore in a boat. Naturally Sawyer and Kate were furious when they figured out what Jack was doing but then it was dropped. Well, it was dropped because Jack’s plan failed, the Others kidnapped them and off they went.
Now the next thing that bugs is Jack admitted last night he was leaving the island for good. Leaving all of them. Now, I don’t blame him at all for that. Not at all. But I do think once Kate and Sayid showed up, pre-sub explosion, he might have TRIED to ask Benry if they could come too. Or at least one of them. If he is so in love with Kate seems like once he’s given the opportunity to save her life, he would have at least asked.
Now he comes back to camp and admits to trying to leave the island. Without anyone else. Oh, and with one of the others. But he was going to send back help for them! He swears it! And that’s not the point because right now the sub is gone because of Locke and Juliet is stranded like the rest of them.
I love Juliet whether she is evil or good, but the fact she is evil delights me that it makes Jack wrong again. Not that the show will point that out or anything.
