You run. I con. Tiger don’t change their stripes.

The long con • season 2 • episode 13

Melissa, 23 – Melbourne (Australia) :

I have always been a Skate shipper and I don’t see that ever changing. I thought that the relationship between Sawyer and Juliet was forced by the writers, while Jack/Kate of the island had a sort of natural feel to it. My Lost moment happens in the 13th episode of season 2, titled “The Long Con”. It is right at the end of the episode, where Sawyer is cleaning his newly won gun, when Kate comes up to him and accuses him of playing her. Sawyer replies “You run. I con. Tiger don’t change their stripes.” I love this moment because, unlike Jack, Sawyer instantly seems to understand what Kate is like, and how very close they are, character wise. Sawyer understands Kate, and this shows clearly in this scene.
