Skate Still Going Strong Five Seasons On
I've noticed that a lot of people think that not much has happened Sawyer/Kate-wise in the past two seasons. I can understand their frustration at our favorite couple being purposefully separated for so long and then reunited only to have Sawyer unavailable while engaged in an interim insta-romance.
But what about the big picture? Where is this story heading into the final season?
Gathial23 posted a vid on youtube which reminds us just how the writers have taken care to keep Sawyer/Kate romantically linked to each other over the past few years.
Posted below are the canon quotes used in the vid.
Thanks Gathial23 for giving us a stellar tribute to enjoy.
Cassidy: Why didn't he come back with the rest of you?
Kate: The helicopter that we were on was running out of gas, so... he jumped... so that we could make it to the boat.
Cassidy: He was trying to get away from you.
Kate: have you ever been in love John?
Sawyer: I ain't looking to leave.
Kate: I think about how desperate you were to stay on that island. And then I realized...it was all because you didn't love anybody.
Kate: I lost him.
Cassidy: You needed him. Sawyer broke your heart. How else were you supposed to fix it?
Kate: He says we have a connection.
Jack: Do you?
Pickett: You let go, or I do her too.
Kate: I'll do anything you want.
Claire's Mom: Why did you lie?
Kate: Because I needed him.
Juliet: Why did you jump off that helicopter?
Sawyer: I wanted to make sure she...I wanted to make sure they got back to the boat.
Sawyer: Everybody I care about just blew up on your damn boat. I know what I can't change.
Sawyer: I was close enough to touch her. If I wanted to, I could've...stood right up and talked to her.
Juliet: Why didn't you?
Sawyer: What's done is done.
Sawyer: I had a thing for a girl once. - She's just gone - and she ain't ever coming back.
Jin: How long do we look James?
Sawyer: As long as it takes.
OTH quote: He knew in his heart that someday it would return to him, and his world would be whole again.
Pickett: You love this guy?
Kate: Yes, I love him.
Sawyer: Cause I wanted you to believe we had a goddamn chance.
Ben: You work so hard to make her think you don't care, that you don't need her.
Hurley: Because they're together.
Kate: What do you mean they're together?
Hurley: Together. They live together.
Kate: She thought you were worried about what would happen if you didn't.
Cassidy: You have the same look on your face I did, when he ditched me.
Radzinsky: Where is she now?
You tell me where she is or I swear to god I'll kill you.
Sawyer: Close your eyes Freckles.
Kate: Stand up!
Sawyer: Close your eyes.
Bernard: So we die. We just care about being together.
Sawyer: I love you too.
Sawyer: Every now and again there's one.....one you name dumb stars with.
Bernard: (...) that's all that matters in the end.
And if that's not enough to sway your disillusioned Skate loving heart. Why not also revisit what The Powers That Be said about these two in the most recent clip show before the penultimate season finale (credit and heartfelt thanks to Luanne for splicing it together for us). Usually it's a total CrapJateFest, but it wasn't this year. Gee, I wonder why that is...
Yeah, I'm sure it's just to throw us S/K fans one final bone to keep on watching before they move onto the tasty four course meal of J/K in the final season. Or better yet, it's another one of their genius advertizing chess moves.
