Who are Desmond and Penny you might ask? Why, they are these people:
and yes, that is Henry Ian Cusick. This is a still from the show Lost and I’m going to give you a brief run down of their relationship:
Before he became stranded on the island, Penny and Desmond were in a long-term relationship. However, due to Desmond’s fear of commitment, they stopped seeing each other. After Desmond went missing in 2001, Penny refused to give up hope and started to search for him. She winds up interacting with Charlie Pace and realizes that there were survivors of the plane crash.
She and Desmond manage to get in touch with one another via phone, although the signal is horrible. She uses that phone call though, to track his location to an area near the Island. She picks up the lifeboat that Desmond and several others are aboard. After the rescue, Penny and Desmond get married and have a son!
I’m now going to ask you to watch these videos of the phone call and and their physical reunion:
All in all they were separated for 8 years. Now….let’s have some fun imagining Blarke in this situation.
Bellamy and Clarke not able to communicate with each other for years? One or both of them thinking that the other is dead?
Clarke calling Bellamy and getting no response?
And then one day….she manages to get through, and the line is static-y (like above) and it’s hard to hear, but they manage to talk for a bit and it’s just long enough for those on the Ark to locate her position and finally land.
Special shout out to @ginalou16 for this!!!
