under rug swept.
When Juliet was pulled into the hole at the Swan site, James’ sheer terror was laid bare on his face as he desperately cling to her hand. He knew what he had in Juliet and when he lost her, he lost a huge part of what he had regained in himself. The loss almost undid him, but what he had gained from Juliet’s love kept him whole through more unbearable losses. When he finally left the Island on the Ajira plane, it was as the man who had loved and lost, but would survive to honour her, until they were reunited again.
The rest of the season — and the series — didn’t go down quite so smoothly for the pair, with conspiracies and the looming threat of global metaphysical collapse criss-crossing across their courtship.
