  1. "Meanwhile, Sawyer is, I think, a fatalist. His first hero -- his daddy -- didn't just have feet of clay. He turned out to be the super-villain of his son's lifestory. James Ford can blame Anthony "Tom Sawyer" Cooper all he wants, but the person he really wants to kill has been dead since 1976. Make that -- persons. After all, by betraying her family for a roll in the hay, Mommy Ford let down her baby boy in ways he won't even let himself think about.

    Sometimes giving up, giving in, or not bothering is the sane choice. Other times, it's a weakness -- a deadly one. Some of Sawyer's longstanding irritation with Jack is well-reasoned, but much of it comes, I think, from Sawyer's own insecurities, his own flaws, and from a deep, deep well of envy. It's sort of: I hate you for trying, because it makes me feel like I should try, but there's no sense in trying, because look at this world -- look at my life -- look at me."

    At last! Thank God, someone finally figured out that it was Mr. Ford Senior and not Anthony Cooper who really destroyed the Ford family. What makes this so disturbing is that Sawyer ended up killing Cooper anyway.
