You would remember if you buried the woman you loved.

One of them • season 2 • episode 14

Jessica, 18 – Hobart (Australia) :

I have been an avid fan of Lost ever since it first started. I must admit that when Season 1 was on, I did not understand it fully, and, although I enjoyed it, I didn’t fully understand what the themes were about. Since then, and the many, many times that I have re-watched these series, it has become a… constant, if you will, of my life, and I could not imagine what I would be like if I had not discovered Lost.

One moment that really stands out to me is the interrogation scene in the Season 2 episode “One of Them” where Sayid is beating Ben up (the first of many to come). “You would remember” he says, “You would remember how deep. You would remember every shovelful, every moment. You would remember what it felt like to place her body inside. You would remember if you buried the woman you loved. You would remember, if it were true!

I love this part because I feel that the portrayal of Shannon was a bit rough most of the time and I think that her choice of redemption was to start a new life, beginning with loving Sayid. I think that this clear display of Sayid’s feelings shows a deeper feeling than was shown between Sayid and Shannon.
