1. I think Boone was a lifeguard at one of those swanky Malibu pools. He probably flirted with girls... or guys... or both while sipping expensive booze. But I didn't mind his hapless attempts at being a hero. He was a good kid and unlike the rest of them, at least he TRIED.

3. Margo was written as an Ice Queen. I love Veronica Hammel, I wish they brought her back. Both Jack's mom and pa are perfectly cast as beautiful, screwed up, dysfunctional-type parents.

I kind of can't believe she'd take her husband's side over her son's when it's clear from the things she says that she knows somewhat that her husband has a drinking problem.

Actually, that's typical of co-dependant wives of alcoholics and it's perfectly mirrored in Diane, Kate's mother. I thought it was kind of nice that they paralleled two families, one in the heartland of Iowa and the other one in the ritzy parts of LA like that.

1. LOL I was going to say I bet he was some sort of swanky lifeguard that never actually had to save anybody. I loved Boone though. He was indeed a good kid. I always wonder what he would have done with the whole hatch situation and all of the season 2 storylines if he'd lived. I don't tihnk he would have been content with Jack and Locke being in charge of the hatch/the button. It's interesting to think about.

3. Yeah, the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me like that. And that's a great point about both Jack's mom and Kate's mom, and how it's shown that problems like that don't discriminate between rich and not-so-rich and everything. I would have liked to see more of Jack's mom, just so we get a bit more sense of what she's like.
