Time for my thoughts on this week's episode. There are numerous sites that do recaps so I'm not going to necessarily do that, but I am going to share my thoughts on what happened.
The icon paintings in my LOST posts for this season were painted by Scott Erickson of The Transpire Project for Chris Seay's book The Gospel According to LOST.

Season 6, Episode 14 - The Candidate
~In all of LOST, I have never cried as much as I did watching this episode.
~Interesting play on words when in the flash sideways Jack tells Locke that he is a candidate for surgery, since Locke was a candidate on the Island until he died.
~Jack's insistence to stay on the Island has me puzzled. Wonder if the Island will be the only safe place in the world if Not John is able to leave?
~And back to the cages, deja vu, no?
~Still trying to figure out the Catch a Falling Star song that we heard from Claire's music box. This is the 5th time we've heard it now all in relation to Claire &/or Aaron. I think it has a deeper meaning, just not sure what it is.
~Was not very surprised when Kate got shot. I fear she may be another who gets killed before the finale.
~It took me almost 24 hours to realize that Sayid died since I was so caught up in Sun & Jin. I think his sacrifice of his life may have been his attempt to redeem himself for all the bad he has done.
~And then, Sun & Jin. I understand now why they didn't make Sun & Jin's reunion as big of a deal as I thought they should have. The dialogue was simply beautiful: “Jin, you have to go” “no, I can do this” “no you can’t” “please go” “I won’t leave you” “I will get you out of here” “go, go, please go” “I won’t leave you, I will never leave you again, I love you Sun” “I love you”. And then their hands drift apart. I'm crying now as I type this. I can't believe they are gone!
~That's all for this week. Can't wait for the next new episode! I'd love to hear your thoughts & theories on anything I've written about or something you think I might have missed.
There's my thoughts for what it's worth. Tune in Tuesday for LOST 6X15 "Across the Sea".
