And now: I will NEVER get tired of this. I hope someday a network produces a show called Extended Dialogue-Free Slow-Motion Musical Montage, and I will step over my own grandmother to recap that show.
Michael strolls up the beach. Vincent sees him and runs over, tongue flapping the breeze. That response right there is why people love their dogs, you know; I can have the shittiest day at the office, and all it takes to make me smile is my dog wagging her tail when she sees me. Of course, there's a huge difference between "shitty day at the office" and "my son got kidnapped by scruffy pirates," so maybe there are some things a dog can't fix. Still, Michael pats Vincent, who either has a secret stash of boar somewhere or just needs to lay off the kibble.
Charlie's got his guitar and is strumming away, presumably working on the next Driveshaft album, when he sees Jin come out of the woods, followed by Bernard and Libby. He runs over. We see Rose notice the commotion. We see Sun doing laundry. Jin and Charlie hug, and they're soon surrounded by other Lostaways all thrilled to see him. And there's Bernard making his way through the crush of people and he sees Rose, her face breaking into a smile that, I have to admit, is giving me a twinge in the ol' tear ducts. She's touching his ring, still on a chain around her neck, and they hug, and they really need to cut away soon before I completely lose it. Hey, guys, Sayid has this totally swingin' pad that he's not going to be needing anymore
Jin pulls away from the crowd and looks down the beach to where Sun has apparently not noticed the mob scene going on. She finally looks up, and looks stunned. Jin runs across the beach to her and swings her around in his arms.
In the jungle, Eko and Jack stroll through the brush. Jack's face falls when he sees a distraught Sayid holding Shannon's body. Sayid says nothing, just walks past him. Then Jack sees Ana-Lucia. They look at each other, Jack looking disappointed (?) and Ana-Lucia looking embarrassed. You know, I think we need a little more than a flirty drink in an airport bar before we're supposed to be all enthralled with the two of them seeing each other again.
