No body, not dead, right?
They still need him to fly the plane off, right? Although he did look like a goner and, “Aw, hell,” is a pretty bad ass last line. But in all the recaps online of the show (who’s worse? Doc Jensen or Kristin Dos Whatever?) and interviews by the LOST people today, everyone is talking about Sayid, Sun and Jin and not mentioning Lapidus. So either he’s alive or no body cares enough about him to give him a shout out.
Fingers crossed for alive!
