Plane survivors Vs. the Others
Have things changed since then? Do we still think the famous Others are so bad? When new episodes air, do we pray to see more scenes in Othersville or at the beach? Do we root for Juliet or Kate to get Jack? That may be another issue, but it's sill a plane survivor versus an Other.
Maybe this issue cannot be that easily decided. We root the plane survivors because we have been with them since the first frame of the pilot and we grew attached to them for the past 2 years and a half. We root the Others because they are mysterious, powerful, twisted and have all the good food and the clean clothes.
What else do each sides have for us to decide if we prefer the plane survivors to the Others? Let's review some facts.
I don't think I can decide between the plane survivors and the Others without getting a bit personal. So if you have other pros and cons for each, feel free to comment.
Plane survivors: As I've mentioned before, we have followed their journey since Day 1, so of course, we all grew attach to them and we want them to get what they desire most (maybe except for Locke): get off the island. I'm really interested in seeing what new ideas they have to survive on the beach, what connections there are between characters, if they will find a way to get off the island, and if they will find new info about the island or the Others, etc. Oh, and not to forget, the cute men are plane survivors (Jack and Sawyer probably being the ones that people dream most about).
Others: I love the mysterious side of each of them and love to watch their stories unfold so I can learn more about Dharma, the Others themselves (how they got there, why are they on the island, etc.), etc. I'm a fan of Lost Easter Eggs and mythology, so for me, scenes in Othersville give me more goodies than the beach scenes lately (of course flashbacks of any kind usually have good Easter Eggs). The character of Ben is fascinating me: what is he really all about, is he the son of the Dharma founders, what is his ultimate game plan, did his mother give him enough love as a child (there must be some logical explanation to why he is so devious), etc.
In all, I think that I'm still rooting for plane survivors Vs. the Others. Or should we just be more interested in the island? Or the others that are not plane survivors or Others (Danielle, Desmond, etc.)?
