Juliet is great. What ends up happening to her is.... less so. For all that Charlie's story turned into a whole lotta nothing long before his death, at the very least they gave him a pretty good sendoff. Let's.... just say that's not a common occurence on this show.
Rousseau's a hottie. No mockery or litigation here. Speaking of missed opportunities, imagine if they could've actually built to some kind of showdown between her and Analucia. Goddamned Michelle Rodriguez being impossible to work with.
You've said like, zero things about Benjamin Linus in general. I forgot what he'd done to this point (that shot of him creepishly grinning) as the others realize he's not who he says he is is another justly iconic moment from this show. While being the best character, he also manages to kind of personify exactly what makes the show so frustrating, and that's its endless capacity to be an eternal cocktease. "Oh I have the answers/jk nm there are no answers" repeat, repeat, repeat, end.
Does Desmond do anything cool this season? I still think it's dumb he had to wake up every 142 (or whatever it was) minutes to re-enter the numbers for like 15 years or the earth will explode or whatever. After like, 2 weeks of that you'd say "screw it." I don't care how in love you were with the guy's daughter.
