When Michael started building the raft I seriously hated the idea. I thought it was ridiculous for a number of reasons. Not only do we know that it won’t work, but Michael would be taking Walt away from the island–one of the most mysterious characters. And then there’s Jin and Sawyer. Sawyer! My favorite character leaving the island? Baloney!! Sure, let Michael go. He causes collateral damage wherever he goes!
Then what makes this a favorite moment? The music. Giacchino’s “Parting Words” composition is amazing. AY-MAY-ZING! It gives me goosebumps, my chest tightens, and I get all teary. What a sissy right? Whatever! I’ve seen Sawyer cry and he’s a tough guy cowboy! So thanks to Giacchino I love that stupid raft.
