Lost: There's a new sheriff in town

February 9, 2006

Sawyer’s back. And he has guns.


With guns blazing and his cocky sneer firmly in place, Sawyer told Jack and the rest of the Lost gang that he won’t be ignored on the island of misfits.

“There’s a new sheriff in town, boys,” Sawyer declared. His “long con” to get the guns duped Jack, Locke and Kate, not an easy feat. Well done, James.

I couldn’t help but chuckle that Sawyer seemed more ticked that people took his shaving cream, batteries and beer, while he was trying to get help, than the fact that he isn’t considered the alpha-male leader of the group. “You took my stuff,” he sniffed, sounding more like a kid on the playground than a grown man. Priceless.

Sawyer is a delicious bad boy and an even better con. I can’t help but wonder if perhaps he’s somehow connected to the other deceptive con artist we’ve seen: Locke’s father. Is it possible Locke’s dad is the guy who swindled James’ mother? Could Locke’s father be the real “Sawyer?”

Not buying it?

OK, do you have a better theory? We all know these Losties are connected one way or another.
