Last night, cool people everywhere watched L O S T conclude its 4th season on ABC.Since everyone else in my family loves the show too (except Shanna, who hates it), we often go back and forth on our character rankings, theories, and trivia stuff.Therefore, since it’s my turn to do the top ten, I’m going to rank the L O S T characters ending season four.Most of you I’m sure will disagree with the list, but rest easy knowing that I’m right about this.
Another great addition to this year’s cast, Keamy came on strong late.He went toe to toe with the Big Ben Linus, calling his bluff by putting a bullet in Alex’s skull.His cool accent and expert mercenary skills put him into the top ten, even if he did die. Keamy makes this list because of the great last couple episodes he had.He even kicked a live grenade at his teammate rather than risk blowing himself up!When the new season starts I’ll remove him and file him somewhere in the ever growing top 500 dead characters list.
Locke sucked earlier this year.He wasn’t doing much of anything except tending house in New Otherton (I don’t care for that name).Then we get a great backstory that tells of his destiny since the day he was born.Following that comes a finale the anoints Locke King of the Others/Island.It was a proud day for him I’m sure, but just when you think he can’t get any zanier, well…you know what happens.It blew my stack, and I’m still racking my brains on how they’ll explain it.Locke very well could be in the top 3, but then I think about the stupid episode from season three.Yea, seven works.
He got tons better in his flash forward this season, working as a hired gun for Ben, striking down his enemies.Again, it seems this season is doing a lot to erase season two’s mistakes.No more do I see Sayid as the depressed pussy mourning
Desmond had a great first couple of episodes and peaked at “The Constant” but we haven’t seen anything from his since.However, his reunion with Penny boosts him right back up.Come on, you know it was a highlight of the series.Besides, he was pushing a button all by himself not long ago, so you have to be happy for his change in fortune.Will he stay sidelined from the island return, will he be the one who lays the final deathblow on pappa-in-law Charles?I tell you what, if he doesn’t show up in the first 4 episodes of season 5, he’s off the list.
