Nothing is Irreversible.  
So I was talking with mysticxf this morning and we were talking about Jack's flashes during the finale and when looking at a shot of the glass scene from I Do in his flashes, we noticed it took on a whole new meaning. I remember when that scene aired, even though it was in SUCH a horrible episode for Jaters, we realized how much of a deeper meaning it had. The images of Jack and Kate on the glass, how they blended in together really seemed to be symbolic of two people, who no matter what the circumstances happening around them, will always be soulmates. We were laughed at of course for even thinking that but now? I'm thinking we got the last laugh.

I thought it was funny that they chose that scene of all scenes to put in Jack's flashes to illustrate how connected he and Kate are, but now I understand it. So I put together a little picspam if you want to take a look. :)

That picspam.

Those lines.

Are you trying to kill me here? You know what I love about this show and this couple? Even though it's over every day I found new meanings to scenes and things I've loved for years. Like this one right here, I adore that scene but like you said, it's in such a horrible episode for us that I could never really trully enjoy it to the fullest. But now, now I can really enjoy everything because it feels so nice to be right.

And that art with their lines omg I'm dead. Please post it on tumblr so I can gush over it everywhere.

Thank you for this, love ♥

Like Flor said, one of the best things about Lost is that you can go back and find new meanings in scenes years later, and even now that the show's over. That also totally applies to Jate. Lovely picspam!! It'll be so nice to rewatch the series and to know 100% that JIF. ♥

This is beautiful. I totally agree with your point about the scene where the glass was separating them being in his flashes in the finale, and why. And the quotes... *sigh* This reminds me why I adore Jate so much.

Thank you for doing this. :D

This is beautiful. I have over-used that word so much this week for Jate but there is no other word, they and their story are just beautifully tragic and complex in ways like this, that you don't even think of at first. EPIC SHIP IS EPIC.

SO beautiful.
I miss them.

They chose that scene because even with everything else that happened in that episode, it is so OBVIOUS where the real connection is, in the first seconds, before their is even any dialog. The looks and the body language says it all.

I always liked the mirroring in this show, and them do it with Jack & Kate more then with any other characters.

I love every Jate line, but the strangest thing happened to me not so long ago. Even though I heard it like a million times, in the lines: ¨I told you not to come back here for me. But I will come back here for you¨
he is telling her that he will still do what he told her not to, to protect her.
Maybe I´m stupid for not seeing it before, or maybe it´s just that the way Jack whispers it in her ear made me unable to focus on anything else :)

God, really beautiful picspam, Carrie. LOVE your juxtaposing the different scenes beside each other.

And, seriously, I don't know how it's gonna be if every time I am faced with references to LOST or especially Jack/Kate scenes and dialogue I break down in tears.

Probably my favorite line in the history of the show, weird as it might sound, is "I don't know your name." "I'm Kate." :)

I love the playful lines like, "You checking me out?" And I think these two will make me cry forever now: "I'm so glad you changed your mind. I'm so glad that you're here" and "I have missed you so much."

Yeah, I'm not doing that well with saying good-bye and coping with the fact that this is all over. Guh.

Beautiful picspam ♥
I actually always loved something about that scene,I never realized what until this last episode. It was their reflections,how they perfectly blend in. I hated Kate but I loved Jack in that scene and episode. Why I also loved that scene later is when in season 5 Kate asked that Jack once again save Ben. I absolutely love that Jack's quote
Thirty years from now that boy's gonna be a man, that locks me in a cage because he needs surgery. And then you're going to come in, and you're going to beg me to operate on him, because he's threatening to murder Sawyer. I've already done this once, I've already saved Benjamin Linus, and I did it for you, Kate. I don't need to do it again.

I too was sooooooooo glad they put the glass scene in Jack's flashes of memory because despite the episode at the time being really bad for Jate oddly that scene was always, despite my hatred for the episode b4 and after that happened, one of my all time favorite Jate scenes if you can believe it for what you guys said. It had such symbolism for Jate.

Amazing pic spam and the quotes are killing me. I love it all! Thank you for this. :)

Dude, don't shortchange yourself. We totally saw that their souls mirrored each other back then - hell, we noticed it in the sneak peeks! (Just having flashbacks to a terribly angsty time in fandom, LOL).
Some, ahem, sour-grapes'ers said that wasn't it ironic that some of Jack's flashes were of scenes that immediately preceded Kate locking lips with Sawyer. But whatever, babe. Jack and Kate connected more through two inches of glass than Skate ever did.

And how Foxy could portray having a lump in his throat through that whole scene without actually having a lump in his throat is amazing.

That glass reflection scene was so freaking emotional then, and it is still now today. The joy at seeing each other again. The pain of not being together yet. Their reflections merging. Thanks for making it even more beautiful for my memories. Also, how awesome for you to put their words to each other together in this post.
verde04: Jate hugverde04 on May 31st, 2010 06:57 pm (UTC)
Ok, I need to comment again because it's just to beautiful.

The reflexions are just too much.
I'm so grateful for this scene. I loved it when it first aired, but seeing it now and knowing everything we know, makes it so much better.

*le sigh*

*runs to youtube to see the scene*

OMFG!!!! *CRIES/WEEPS/BAWLS/DIES* This is incredible! AAAAAAAH! I was elated that the Glass scene was a distinct memory for Jack, because what happened after that was fuckin' BULL, but to have Jack remember that moment with Kate, when he wanted to touch her so bad he ACHED with it....GAH.

This is love, bb. *HUGS*
