Lost ARG 2008 - Part 10

Hurrah! Another day, another e-mail from Mr. Van Eeghen telling me that Test 2 is ready to go. Here’s the mail:




I am pleased to announce the release of the second assessment in the Dharma Initiative's Volunteer Recruitment Program.This new test is a broad-spectrum knowledge analysis.It is a multiple-choice test covering a range of topics.


Be prepared before embarking on this assessment - there will be NO SECOND CHANCES.

I would also like to encourage recruits to take the opportunity to earn extra "Dharma" points. These points WILL contribute to your overall test results and the eventual position you will be assigned within the Dharma Initiative.I trust you will find these new tasks sufficiently challenging and will embrace the opportunity to grow the Dharma Initiative.

I look forward to reviewing your results.

Hans Van Eeghen
Head of Recruiting
The Dharma Initiative

Standard procedure dictated that I go and check the online version of this e-mail and check the source code to see if Ruckus Guy, or anyone else, has embedded any hidden messages there. There was:

“The Dharma Initiatve – Guiding the World to a Bitter Tomorrow – BS”

Note the substitute of the letter ‘e’ for the letter ‘i’ in “Bitter”; that comes into play for the actual Test. As for the “BS” part, I can’t decide if it’s a comment from the author labelling the term as ‘bullshit’, or whether it’s the initials of the person that left the message.

If they are initials then I don’t know who they came from – unless BS are the real initials of the guy that calls himself Ruckus Guy?

Anyway, that being that I then went to http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/ to go and have a run at Test 2: Broad Spectrum Knowledge Analysis. Here was the opening message:

I am proud to state that, on the lookout now for potential ‘cheats’ within the game, I noticed that the ‘i’ in the word ‘Analysis’ had been underlined.

So I started the test (basically a series of random, multiple choice questions to do with science and history and art) and kept pressing the letter ‘i’ to see if it did anything. Mostly, it didn’t. Until I got to the last question (which is apparently always the same no matter what set of questions you got previously).


What is the answer to this question?

A: A

B: B

C: C

D: D

Pressing ‘i’ on this screen caused, for me, Option C to flicker a little. So that was the one I went for. I have since learned that Option C also flashes for everyone. Whether that means cheating was the right thing to do or the wrong thing to do I don’t know! Anyway, as a result of all of that, I then checked my progress and found I had been assigned into a group called ‘Brontes’ for Test 2.

A bit of digging around on the Internet has told me that there are three potential groups I could have been allocated into. Brontes, Polyphemus and Steropes. All of these are names of a Cyclops, or Cyclopes for the plural. I doubt it’s coincidental that a Cyclops has one eye (eye/’i’, geddit!?).
Indeed, I now think back to the previous test and the group allocations being based around moons. Where are moons found? Space. And the cheat for Test 1 involved pressing the space bar! There's more rhyme and reason to this whole thing than perhaps first perceived. Though I still get the feeling the group allocation was probably random because, from the results I have seen from polls online, there seems to be an even three-way split between who has been put where. So whilst I’m not altogether bowled over, I am intrigued where this is all headed.

The Eye In The Cabin

To whom does the eye in the cabin belong? Specifically the eye that appeared in Jacob’s Cabin during the episode The Beginning Of The End when Hurley peeped inside. Specifically, this eye:

I remember when the episode first aired it seemed to me that the majority of Lost fans believed the eye belonged to Locke. I wondered if that wasn’t just because Locke immediately appeared with Hurley after this eye had sprung up. Here’s a close up of Locke’s eye.

To me, the Cabin Eye and Locke’s Eye aren’t particularly similar. Besides, why would it make sense for Locke to one minute be in Jacob’s Cabin and then the next out of it? Particularly in light of the difficulty he had locating it again, right up until the episode Cabin Fever? No. I’m ruling Locke out for this one. Next?

Purely looking at the Cabin Eye, with the brown-green colour and the brown hair surround, who that we know does it look like? Desmond springs to mind.

Not a bad likeness, to be fair. But logically, there isn’t much sense for Desmond to be in the cabin is there? Especially in light of him leaving the Island at the end of Season 4! (That gives the writers two Seasons to get Des back on the Island, trapped in a cabin in the past and have it all explained. Not likely.) In other illogical notions, I also considered the Cabin Eye was Hurley’s Eye!

Again, the colour and the ‘look’ fits but, hell, that would mean Hurley was peeping into Jacob’s Cabin looking at himself looking out! That’s just nuts. Let’s try and get sensible with this. Let’s employ some logic. When Hurley looked in the cabin he saw Christian Shephard sitting in the rocking chair. That was Jack’s dad. Well. . . in the same vein. . . could the Cabin Eye not have been Hurley’s dad? David Reyes?

Yeah. . . That one is pretty remote to say the least, logically speaking. David Reyes exists in flashforward, post-Island world. For him to be in the real world before Oceanic 815 crashed, then on the Island in the cabin, then back in the real world fixing up Hurley’s Camaro. . . Yeah. We’ll call that a long shot. And maybe that’s the trouble – maybe the obvious is the way of it. I mean, it’s Jacob’s Cabin! So why would it not be Jacob himself as the owner of the Cabin Eye looking out? We got a good close-up of Jacob’s Eye during the episode The Man Behind The Curtain.

What do you think? You think they look the same? The eyebrow on one seems lower than the other for my money. Besides, would Jacob really stand to have Christian sitting in his chair whilst he was at home? Fair enough Christian sitting there whilst Jacob is away, but surely not whilst he is there!

So where does that leave us? Well, I got one last guess, and it’s my favourite option so far. Particularly after the events of the episode Cabin Fever, where it was revealed that Horace Goodspeed was the man that designed and probably constructed Jacob’s Cabin. It strikes me that the owner of the Cabin Eye could very well be Horace!

I mean, when Locke dreamed of him he was trapped in a loop. And that kind of fits with the idea that he has become trapped in Jacob’s Cabin, that weird place of limbo on the Island. The fact that the brown hair and colour isn’t a million miles away sure doesn’t hurt either. The look is right and there is a connection to the cabin with a firm logic at play. For me, that’s the most solid foundation so far.

Until I know different, I’m keeping my eye on Horace!

Lost ARG 2008 - Part 9

The results are in! I logged onto http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/ to check how my progress was doing – and found that I had been put into a group called ‘Ganymede’.

There are apparently two groups that people have found themselves in. Ganymede and Pandora. Both have Greek mythological roots, and are also the names of satellites in our solar system. (Not the kind that broadcast T.V.! Moons!)

I have seen some discussion about what kind of rationale may have dictated the group selections. Personally I am of the view that it’s entirely random, mainly because I am a little cynical about how much thought would have gone into it. . .

Like, some people thought that Ganymede was a group consisting of people that had cheated. Well I know I didn’t cheat, so I don’t think that’s the way of it. Interestingly, though, there are some clues that suggest cheating is what 'Dharma' wanted people to do!

During Test One, apparently if you pressed the space bar it froze the counter and enabled you to complete the puzzle without losing any time. So what? Well, the test states that it is a ‘Pressurized Spatial Judgment Evaluation’.

Pressurized Spatial?

Press Space?

I think I’ll keep my eye on that. . . Potentially it might be something about the nature of the Dharma selection, or potentially it might have just been a little clue to help people who were struggling.

There is also a Leader Board up and running. I am not on it, by the way. But here’s the way things were when I just looked.

There is some blurb on the ‘What is This?’ option that explains what this Leader Board is all about.

‘This leader board shows the top 10 recruits with the most Dharma Points.

To earn Dharma Points, recruit a friend into the Volunteer Recruitment Program and take part in any extra tasks set by Head of Recruiting, Hans Van Eeghen.

The flags on the right hand side indicate the nationality of our top 10 recruits.

The leader board is updated every 24 hours.’

So basically if you go around promoting the game to other people you get on the Leader Board. Again, like cheating, this all feels like something that takes too much time and effort. I mean, I enjoy taking part but I am hoping that it will add extra meaning to Lost or at least give me something more engaging. So far it’s a little flat. But I’ll stick with it.

Black Smoke And The Turbine Explosion

This sequence of images goes towards investigating a theory that the Black Smoke was present at the crash site of Oceanic 815, and was responsible for the explosion of the engine. I will say, right from the start, I think this theory is a nice idea but I don't believe the evidence is there to back it up.

So, first we see one side of the turbine engine with some hapless survivor being warned not to wander in front of it by Locke.

In this second image we see the hapless survivor unable to heed the advice given by Locke to stay clear of the engine and is, instead, lifted bodily off the ground and sucked into it. This is, of course, some cool shit. See you later, hapless survivor.

As a point of interest the writers have confirmed that this hapless survivor is in fact Gary Troup, the author of ‘Bad Twin’, a book which featured in the ARG The Lost Experience that took place between Season 2 and 3, and was the manuscript Sawyer was reading until Jack threw it on the fire.

And, yeah, in case you didn’t know: Gary Troup is an anagram of Purgatory. He’s also in love with Cindy Chandler! Well, was. It’s unknown whether Cindy gave a shit, mind.

We now cut to the other side of the engine. So over Jack's right shoulder, on the other side of the engine, is where we have seen the hapless survivor Gary Troup be sucked into it. The theory about the Black Smoke being responsible begins in this shot also, with that piece of black debris in the air directly above the running woman's head. This, so the theory goes, is the Black Smoke in its smaller, flying form - and it's about to dive into the turbine engine. . .

As can be seen, the small, black piece of debris - or Black Smoke, if you're a believer - moves towards the turbine engine.

And so to the final shot, where the explosion has just occurred and the black piece of debris shoots upwards and away in that elongated streak that is, perhaps, what convinces a lot of people it is the Black Smoke at work.

However, for me, we have already seen the reverse side of the turbine engine, with a hapless Gary Troup wandering in front of it and getting sucked in. Surely this, more than any Black Smoke notion, is responsible for the explosion? And just as the explosion happens, the blast of hot air radiating outwards at a rapid rate would naturally cause this drifting piece of debris to be rocketed away so quickly as to turn into a streak of blackness.

Those that see a Black Smoke as either present or responsible for the event are merely hopeful. Like I said, I love the idea, but I don't think it's what's actually occurred. There’s an ‘online urban myth’ going around saying the producers have explicitly stated that the above images are the result of a computer-generated glitch. . . However, there’s no actual evidential source for when this was ever stated and appears to be just one of those pieces of misinformation that finds its way into circulation and is impossible to stop.

Even still, I don’t think the Black Smoke had anything to do with the crash of Oceanic 815 or the turbine explosion. It may do bad things, but that doesn’t mean we can pin everything on it!

Lost ARG 2008 - Part 8

So I finally managed to log on at http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/ to begin my testing procedure for the first time. So. . .

Test 1

The test was very straight forward. Basically you clicked into the screen and there was an empty square in front of you. Around the square were various shapes of all different sizes. The task was to fill the square perfectly using the shapes provided. Generally, at least two of the shapes were not required to complete the puzzle.

The clock started at 100 seconds, and began counting backwards the moment you began. Once you completed the puzzle the timer was stopped, and this then became your percentage rating.

I can admit that, my first go, I managed a measly 18%. But I didn’t quit there and gave it another ten minutes, learning how using the shapes with the flat sides first was the easiest starting point and soon managing to rack up a much faster time. After about ten minutes I decided enough was enough and quit. My finished score was 71%.

I have read since about ways to cheat, by using photoshop to get a first glimpse of the image and work the puzzle out whilst the timer doesn’t move and. . . etc. Well, it’s a computer – and people will always learn how to cheat computers. So being the best cheat isn’t what interests me. 71% was as good as I got in ten minutes. Maybe ten minutes more I’d have been 75% but, really, I figured I’d wasted enough time as it was, and I was getting hungry.

So, that’s Test 1 done. Soon the leaderboard (of cheats!) will be updated and perhaps then I’ll learn what sort of ranking I have achieved and perhaps what role within the Dharma Initiative I have placed myself in! Namaste, as they say.

Lost ARG 2008 - Part 7

It seems we finally have lift-off. Today (20/08/2008) I received this e-mail:




Today is the most wonderful of days.

It marks the launch of the Dharma Initiative's Volunteer Recruitment Program.

Having completed the eligibility test you can now download your official Dharma Initiative ID card. Simply go to My Profile and download your card. Carry it with pride.

Today you will also be able to commence our extensive testing program that will assess your suitability for a range of research roles within the Dharma Initiative.

Many years ago I was asked to help rebuild this noble community of scientific inquiry. With its genuinely altruistic vision, I understood that a vibrant volunteer cohort would be a fundamental part of this effort.

Together, with my dedicated recruiting team, I have searched the globe for the best and brightest to join us, to form the foundations of the newly reconstituted Dharma Initiative.

Today we lay that foundation. So that together we can guide the world to a better tomorrow.

Hans Van Eeghen

Head of Recruiting

The Dharma Initiative

First things first, I went and checked the official site this e-mail exists on to see if Ruckus Guy had embedded any messages in the Source Code. There was something odd there. ‘Batteries Ice Pint’. Didn’t look like a message from Ruckus Guy to me. Someone, somewhere online anagrammed this word and came back with ‘Patience Is Bitter’.

That seems to me a cheeky remark left by the creators of the ARG who have probably come under fire for the time its taken to get this thing underway. The irony of this joke won’t be lost on me by the end of this piece. . .

I downloaded my Dharma Card by the way. It’s not as grand as it sounds, being an Adobe document with front and back pictures of a credit-card sized image. The idea is you cut it out, stick to the two together and, I guess, laminate the thing together and “carry it with pride”. Pardon me, but I won’t be bothering. I’m into this game, but I’m not THAT into it! Here’s my card all the same.

But what of the game itself? Well, hearing that the testing was ready to begin, I went to http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/ and decided to go and see what was what. . . And found that I could not log on.

I waited and I waited. . .

And I wondered if something had perhaps happened to the servers of the ARG. . .

And then I decided I had had enough of waiting. . .

I guess I’ll just have to try again at a later date, when the mass influx of people trying to play the game has died down or the servers’ capability has increased.

(My thanks to the people at DarkUFO for the amusing pictures above as other people like me found humour in their plight at waiting for this blasted ARG. Patience IS bitterness indeed!)

Lost ARG 2008 - Part 6

Another e-mail from Hans Van Eeghen continues the ‘holding pattern’ this ARG has us eager beavers locked into. We just want to get on and play the game and here we get a mail that tells us the game is not ready yet but it will be! It’s a good date for it, though (15th August (Month 8) being a nice 815 tie-in). Here’s the mail:



I am pleased to announce that, following an extensive security audit of all departments within the Dharma Initiative, I am totally satisfied that DharmaWantsYou.com is now secure. As a result I am able to confirm a date for the commencement of our latest volunteer testing program.

http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/ to confirm the launch date.

I have heard from many of you in recent weeks via email asking what will be assessed in the program and what the nature of our latest research is. I have found your enthusiasm and relentless curiosity extremely endearing. However, in the interests of maintaining the integrity of the testing process, I cannot be forthcoming on these enquiries.

Despite this, I would like to affirm to you all that I am extremely optimistic about these upcoming evaluations and believe that they will yield recruits of the highest caliber.

Good luck to all applicants.

Together we can guide the world to a better tomorrow.

Hans Van Eeghen
Head of RecruitingThe Dharma Initiative

So having received and read this mail I proceeded directly to the website to see what this official date was. . . And it was the 19th. So just a few days wait more then.

As has become standard, I went and checked the official site address for this e-mail that I had received so I could view the source code and see if Ruckus Guy had left any hidden messages there.

There wasn’t any.

This does feel like the most pointless instalment of this ARG to date. Things, surely, can only get better.

Top 5 Key Non-Island Characters

Before I get into my Top 5 I should qualify the criteria employed here to define my selection. By “key non-Island character” I am referring exclusively to characters that have had no direct involvement with the Island. No Christian Shephard, for example. Or Anthony Cooper. They’ve both had major plotlines on the Island. Penny Widmore may have never been on the Island but she’s had a direct involvement with events surrounding it. Same goes for her dad, Charles Widmore; since he claims ownership of the Island it’s fair to assume he’s got involvement in it!

What I am left with then, are characters that have, for their various reasons, come to be memorable, or intrinsic to the show, or just plain notable in Lost despite never being part of the Island aspect. In order of their first appearance, here’s my Top 5.

Randy Nations
Appeared In: Walkabout, Everybody Hates Hugo, Tricia Tanaka Is Dead, The Beginning Of The End

Pop quiz, hotshot! Name the only flashback / flashforward character to have appeared in every single Season of Lost by the end of Season 4. (Hint: His name and his picture are just above this piece of writing.) That’s right – Randy has the dubious honour of being such a recurring feature it would have been improper to leave him out of this list. The fact that he’s an odious piece of shit doesn’t hurt either. And that he’s got a porn star name sure doesn’t work against his legendary status, too.

In Season One he was Locke’s boss at the box factory. . .

There’s just no explanation as to why Randy is such a bastard to Locke. It’s great! Let’s not forget that Locke is in a wheelchair. He’s a guy at work who is A CRIPPLE. But does Randy give a fuck? No, sirree! He marches right in and attacks Locke on his break; belittles the games he likes to play and mocks his planned Walkabout trip. I mean, wow! Randy is a man that needlessly, mercilessly berates a crippled old man – that’s a real bastard and a half. What a guy!

In Season Two he was Hurley’s boss at Mr. Cluck’s. . .

Chronologically speaking, this is before Randy was Locke’s boss at the box factory, but he’s still a swine. He pulls Hurley into the office and crucifies that fat, greedy pig for unwittingly stuffing his face with chicken. To be fair, as Hurley’s boss, Randy did have the right to discipline his employee for being such a lazy arse – he just didn’t need to look like he was enjoying it as much as he clearly was! Cluck you, Randy!

In Season Three the tables were turned and Randy was just pleased to be an employee for Hurley at the soon-to-be-opened Mr. Cluck’s. . .

This is the one time we get to see Randy looking humble and not being a son of a bitch. Probably this incident part-fuelled how bitter he would become when he would eventually be Locke’s boss. Once you’ve seen a meteorite obliterate a television reporter it changes you.

In Season Four it was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance in the opening scene where Randy, inexplicably and improbably, was on hand to video Hurley’s unfortunate arrest. . .

There he is filming the end of the chase. How did he know he should be there, with a video camera!? No one knows. But I think we can all be assured he was loving every second of seeing Hurley arrested, upset, looking crazed – all for his home video viewing pleasure. Even though he’s filming it all with the lens cap on. Doh! Evil and comedy all in a single shot! If Randy doesn’t show up for a brief cameo during Seasons 5 and 6 I for one am going to be very upset.

Appeared In: Solitary, Lockdown, Greatest Hits, The Shape Of Things To Come (in coffin), There’s No Place Like Home – Part 1

Just what the hell is this woman up to? Well, to be fair, after the events of The Shape Of Things To Come she’s not up to much, what with being DEAD and all. But even her death is surrounded in mystery – who did it? why did they do it? I’m telling you, the woman’s up to no good. She’s been up to no good since the day we met her.

As you may recall, Sayid was sent to torture her to verify if she had been blowing stuff up in Iraq. You can bet your bottom dollar that she really did it. Yet Sayid realised she was his childhood sweetheart and so he engineered her escape and that was the last time he saw her – until he left the Island and returned to the world as part of the Oceanic 6.

But that didn’t mean he hadn’t spent a fair old time looking, and he would have to hunt far and wide because this woman gets around. She showed up in America, buying a home that Locke was checking out for her. And she turned up in London, getting mugged, requiring Charlie to come to her assistance.

For an Iraqi woman on the run for terrorist crimes she has laughed in the face of coincidence to keep cropping up in the grand Oceanic tapestry. For this reason she makes the Top 5, mainly because I am sure we’re not quite done learning about how deep into this web she goes. For example, the FBI informed Sayid that, just before the crash of Oceanic, she was living in California, working as a “lab-tech at a medical testing company”.

A medical testing company, eh? Surely not a certain. . .

When it comes to Nadia, and how involved she may just turn out to become in the grand scheme of things, I wouldn’t put much passed her. SOMEONE wanted her dead bad enough, we’ve just yet to learn the reason why. . .

Appeared In: Raised By Another

What an absolute dickwad this guy is. A total fucking jerk. I mean, let’s appraise his situation. He’s going out with Claire. Now take a look at Thomas, and then think of Claire. Let’s be clear: Claire is HOT. Young and blonde and full of life with a great figure and, to be fair, a cracking rack. Claire is smoking hot and this Thomas guy should be pinching himself that he’s managed to bag himself a chick like her.

So what does he do? Well he manages to get her knocked up. OK. Fair enough. Shit happens. But he convinces her that she should keep the baby. He talks about raising a family and makes Claire dream of a happy future together. Then, the moment she’s past the point of no return, he starts drinking and getting all pissy about how he needs time to be an artist and, ultimately, he bails.

In the grand tradition of shit fathers on Lost, Thomas adds himself amongst the ranks. So he makes the Top 5 for being a bad father, but also for being the father of Aaron who, I think we can all agree, is destined to be quite important. But that’s not where the end of the intrigue with Thomas ends. For the online Lost community, Thomas has generated lots of discussion and theorising because of the possibility that he may actually be the son of Ben!

That’s right. Fucking amazing, right? And how did some members of the Lost fandom manage to arrive at this incredible possibility? Ah, you know. . . because Thomas kind of, uh, looks a bit like Ben.


For what it’s worth, if Thomas turns out to be Ben’s long lost son I’ll spend an afternoon gnawing on my own elbows, video it, and post it here. Still, you’ve gotta love the online Lost fans. If there is a bunch of more rabidly intelligent morons all babbling away with each other I can’t imagine where I’d find ‘em!

Sarah Shephard
Appeared In: Do No Harm, Man Of Science, Man Of Faith, The Hunting Party, A Tale Of Two Cities, Through The Looking Glass

It’s hard to come up with good things to say. She done gone and messed Jack up real good! When we first met her she and Jack were getting married but we knew that things weren’t going to go well – by the time he got to the Island we knew he was single! Fact is I can only really blame her for the break-up. I mean, pre-Sarah, this was Jack:

Post-Sarah, this was Jack:

Sure, there were some other circumstances involved in Jack’s transformation but Sarah’s got to take responsibility for a major part of it. I mean, come on! When they first met Sarah was looking at a life in a wheelchair. It was a life so shit that her fiancĂ©e at the time bailed at the thought of her not even being able to go to the bathroom by herself. But up steps Jack, heroically, and performs what can only be described as a miracle.

Sarah should have been getting down on her hands and knees and kissing the ground Jack walked on every single day of her WHEELCHAIR-FREE life! There is literally nothing she doesn’t owe him! And yet what does she do? When he’s out working every hour available trying to enable other people to have wonderful lives thanks to his gifts as a surgeon? What does poor stuck-at-home Sarah Shephard do? She goes and fucks someone else behind his back.

Yeah, SHE is the one that cheats on the marriage and then SHE is the one that goes filing for divorce. Not content with making Jack think that she might just be fucking his own DAD she turns him into a crazed lunatic by declining to tell him the name of the person she’s screwing him over for. Give the guy a break! If it wasn’t for him you wouldn’t be WALKING around FUCKING people AT ALL.

As if to add insult to injury, she doesn’t even bother to go and see Jack when he turns up alive after his time on the Island. I mean fuck’s sake! For all she knew he was dead, and then he turns up as a hero having saved the Oceanic 6 and she can’t even say, “Hi!” The only time she does bother is when Jack is in hospital and she decides NOW she’ll go and see him when she’s all FAT and PREGNANT just so she can rub his nose in her new life that he’s not a part of anymore.

You’re a piece of work all right! You done gone and messed Jack up real good!

Jae Lee
Appeared In: . . . And Found, The Whole Truth, The Glass Ballerina

It’s not often you’ll hear me say that someone did the right thing when they went and killed themselves, but for Jae Lee I am making an exception. He went and threw himself out of a high building and it was the right thing to do. I mean, look, he had his shot. He turned out for an arranged date with Sun and, damn his eyes, went and led her into thinking that he might have been interested.

Oh, but then he mentions that he’s got some broad in America that he’s secretly seeing and this whole date thing was just to get his mother off his back! What a jerk! How could he do that to Sun? Lovely, lovely Sun. (I’ve got a thing for Sun. She’s not an obvious hot chick like Kate or Shannon. She’s a woman with depth and beauty beyond that superficial level.) Oh lovely, lovely Sun. . .

This Jae Lee piece of work has her practically hanging off his balls and he decides that he wants to go and live in America with some hussy. Ah, but then all that doesn’t work out so he comes back to Korea and ‘gives English lessons’ to Sun now that she’s got herself all married and unobtainable. Yeah, Jae Lee wasn’t interested when Sun was available – he just likes to fuck married women.

You had your shot, pal. And you sure as shit made your bed. You made Sun look like a cheap whore in front of her father, made Jin have to agree to become a murderer and then had Sun all stressed out on the Island with the fear that she was carrying your bloody kid! Frankly I’m GLAD Jin came round and give you a good kicking. You mess around with a man’s wife, you deserve it.

Still, he did the right thing by killing himself. Now that’s what I call justice!

And on that happy note, that draws my Top 5 peripheral character list to a close! Hurrah!
