"This doesn't matter. None of this matters. All that matters is that we felt it."

Tonight's Lost made me wonder, more than once, if tonight's episode of Lost was going to make me cry.

That show can hit me emotionally now while also going through all those plot gymnastics it's notorious for, and this episode had both emotional hits and a plethora of plot points. The people who make this show really think a lot about love, and this episode had a lot to do with that. I was going to say "of course it would be more emotional," but if the writers were bad writers, it wouldn't have an impact. (Imagine Ed Wood trying to write about love. He could probably feel it, he almost certainly couldn't convey it through words or images.) This did. Have an impact, I mean. Really moody episode, in a way I appreciated, and I hope talking about the freakin' mood isn't a spoiler. Well done, Lost writers and producers who mess with us. I'll keep going along with the rest of your messing-with-us.
