I have to admit - I wasn't sure that Desmond wouldn't let Charlie die until the last moment. I thought, maybe. Desmond really wants to be with Penny again and who can blame him? But I'm really glad he didn't let Charlie die. I told Jim that I don't want Charlie off the show. He has more to say, more room to grow, redemption, dad gum it!
Aside: Aren't the names Desmond and Penelope great? Don't they seem so English?
I love the interaction with Hurley and anybody. Hurley is my favorite character on the show and I want him to be well. Maybe the island heals mental illnesses, too. I tried to imagine how much these people have to say to each other now. We are assuming that they are still hiding parts of their lives - the idea of sitting around a campfire with your buds. That sounds like a reason to open up their lives and talk about your past failures. Your need for redemption.
Ah, Sawyer. He's hot and funny. Who could want anything else?
