“And I know her, we’re together. It’s like we always have been and always will be. Feeling this love, and just as I’m about to be englulfed by it… I open my eyes and this sodding idiot is just standing there, asking me if I’m okay. But I saw it. Just for a moment I saw what it looked like.”
It’s not your fault she’s dead. It’s mine. She was sitting right there, right where you are now trying to leave this place, and I convinced her to stay. I made her stay on this island..because I didn’t want to be alone. You understand that, right?…But, uh….I think some of us are meant to be alone…I was gonna ask her to marry me.
“This is a place that you… that you all made together so that you could find one another.The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people on that island. That’s why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them, and they needed you.”
I think both Sawyer and Juliet needed someone to believe that there was more to them than the sum of their past mistakes. They each needed someone who could look at all the terrible things they had done and still believe in the good that they possessed. Together, perhaps for the first time, they were allowed to believe in themselves and with that, find redemption and love.
