LOST Media Mentions - DarkUFO

We’re kicking off “This Week is Death” with the most moving deaths in "Lost" history. These were the deaths that shook us to the core. They evoked horror. Prevoked tears. Had us staring in the screen in disbelief.

Before getting to the list, know that later in the week we’ll be looking at the “WTF” Deaths in “Lost” history, showcases those times in which character deaths were greeted with a mixture of surprise and annoyance. These deaths evoked plenty of emotion, but not quite the pure grief/disbelief that the following five did.

Many thanks to all of you that nominated all the deaths in the lists this week!

Honorable mentions: Charlotte Staples Lewis, Noor "Nadia" Abed Jazeem

John Locke. Say what you will about “The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham” as an episode, but the final scene between Locke and Ben will go down as one of the series’ high points when all is said and done. It’s a scene that’s only gained power in the time since, especially in light of the revelations in “The Incident.”

Charlie Pace. While not always a crowd favorite, it’s hard to argue against the heroism he showed in his final moments on the show. Embracing his fate in order to save the woman he loved, Charlie instantly leapt into iconic character status in the Looking Glass.

Boone Carlyle. It’s easy to mock God’s friggin’ gift to humanity. But it’s also to forget just how shocking this death truly was back in Season 1. Not only was it the show’s first major death, but the prolonged hour of agony leading up to it made it that much worse.

Libby. I don’t really care that Darlton are sick of talking about Libby. It’s their fault for creating such a shocking moment, one painful not so much for her death so much as Hurley’s heartbreaking reaction to the news. “The Lie” showed just how much her death informs one of the show’s most important characters.

Alex Rousseau. Possibly the harshest death in television history. Who kills a teenage girl in cold blood? Oh, “Lost” does. In many ways, you can divide the show into what happened before this moment and what happened afterwards. It was the moment that changed the rules.

Go here to vote for your most moving death.
