'The Beauty and Power of Marital Love'
Chris Seay weighs in on Tuesday's LOST episode, "The Candidate"
Chris Seay, author of The Gospel According to Lost, chimes in on the developments in Tuesday's episode of LOST, "The Candidate." (SPOILERS AHEAD) Seay opens the vlog by noting that he usually turns to Scripture or analyzing Egyptian hieroglyphics after an episode of LOST, but this time, he's pretty subdued and melancholy as he, with LOST fans all over the world, mourns the loss of two of our favorite characters, Sun and Jin Kwan. "If you're not a LOST fan," says Seay, "just turn this off because you're gonna think I'm silly and sappy. But if you're a fan, you've come to love these people." Seay notes how Sun and Jin's marriage has come full circle, going from selfish and "radically unfaithful" to falling in love again "in a way they never have before. . . . We see the beauty and power of marital love." Seay also notes that his favorite line from the episode was when Jack tells Claire, "We're not strangers. We're family." Live together, die alone . . .
