Love Lost as much as we do? Then you’re guaranteed to cry in these 7 moments from the iconic series that STILL make us ugly cry. Seriously, this list was a triumph that led us down a spiral of videos where we cried and cried again. We regret nothing except that we haven’t done a rewatch of Lost in ages. Until then, here are 7 moments from Lost that still make us ugly cry!
1. Penny and Desmond connecting after 8 years in “The Constant”
This guaranteed tearjerker moment is one that we remember clear as day for the phenomenal acting Henry Ian Cusick and Sonya Walger. They gave it their all and made a conversation years in the making so damn worthwhile. They also showed that love is something that can stand the test of time. For them, they’re still in love, will always be in love. And no matter where life takes them, they’ll find each other over and over.
2. Sawyer (James) holding Juliet as she dies in “LA X – Part 1”
This moment hurt the first time we saw it. Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) had built a life together. They were set. Happy. And Lost pulled the rug right out from underneath us when she got swept down that shaft. When you watch the series finale…this scene hits 10 times harder. Because they made it. They found their way back to each other and she knew it in her dying moments. And it breaks our heart that she died before telling him it was going to be alright.
3. Sun and Jin reunite in “Collison”
Sun (Yunjin Kim) and Jin’s (Daniel Dae Kim) relationship really blossomed on Lost when they got to the island and transformed into one of the most beloved relationships on the show. Them reuniting and running into each other’s arms was them forgiving each other for the sins of their past and moving on and forward with each other. P.S. This scene also featured Rose (L. Scott Caldwell) and Bernard (Sam Anderson) reuniting, making this A MOMENT to never be forgotten in Lost history.
4. Sawyer tells Jack about his dad in “Exodus, Part 1”
Sawyer and Jack (Matthew Fox) were like cats and dogs from the very moment they met. They just couldn’t understand each other’s motivations and doubted the other’s plans to the detriment of the island population as a whole. But this moment…this changed something. Sawyer gave Jack peace for something that he had been struggling with when it came to his father. Sure, everything wasn’t perfect after for these two. But the confession and the moments after matter.
5. Hurley helps Richard connect with Isabelle in “Ab Aeterno”
Honestly, we don’t remember the lead-up to this episode. It’s been a while. But when we think of Néstor Carbonell we think of this amazing scene where his character Richard gets to reconnect with his dead wife Isabelle (Mirelly Taylor). No one gets chances like this and this scene managed to ground Richard’s character in a way the show was never capable of before, making him feel real and something that fans could connect with, showing his humanity at the same time.
6. Charlie dies in “Through the Looking Glass”
We’re going to sideline the argument that pops up every time people discuss Charlie’s (Dominic Monaghan) death and how he could’ve made it out. For now, let’s talk about Charlie and what drove him. Honestly, he was protecting his friend from possibly dying as well. And in his final moments, he made sure to hand vital information to Desmond about the people that were lying to them from the very moment they met. That makes him a hero.
7. Ben confessing to Ilana in “Dr. Linus”
Ben Linus was the bane of our existence on Lost because of the phenomenal work by Michael Emerson. And through witchcraft, suspected of course, and great writing he went from the most hated character to a man that wanted to just belong. This scene with Ilana (Zuleikha Robinson) stripped away all the walls Ben put up around himself. And Ilana saying that she would have him…Ben’s reaction was one of shock and heartbreaking hope for something more.
