Boone Appreciation Thread #8:Because we will never stop loving him and missing him
Boone is born in October, 1981, the son of wealthy Sabrina Carlyle, the head of a wedding company. When Boone was ten years old, Sabrina marries Adam Rutherford, who has an eight year old daughter named Shannon. His parents frequently left him with a nanny when he was young, and Boone, angry at being left alone, called her to his room repeatedly without cause. During one of these calls, when Boone was six, the nanny fell and broke her neck.
USA Today described Boone as "a callow young man who had been toughened by island challenges." Variety called him "hot-headed",while Entertainment Weekly wrote he was "even-tempered".Boone's quick decisions with good intentions are often rash. On his sixth day on the island, Joanna Miller drowns. As soon as he finds out she is drowning, he immediately tries to save her, although he does not succeed and almost becomes a casualty himself. While trying to take on a leadership role, Boone steals the camp's water; however, his plan backfires and the survivors turn on him. When Boone suspects Sawyer has Shannon's medicine, he attempts to steal it.Aside from Shannon, he was closest to John Locke, who acted as a father figure and mentor to the younger, inexperienced Boone and who, unlike others including Shannon, tried to help him do his part on the island. Boone similarly is one of the few to trust Locke's guidance and made Locke feel like the hero he had always wanted to be. Boone reflects aspects of Locke's personality, such as his desire to have a unique purpose and his willingness to believe in the unlikely.

I named him the favorite elder son of the island where Jack is the Papa-Bear!
I think Boone DOES have leadership qualities but is too young. He can take initiative on his own and even though he respects Jack and seems to see him as their leader, is not afraid to go up against him. And really, in many ways, it is Boone who decided Jack should be the leader, by taking every issue to him and forcing him to take action -like with that Rose woman. Boone could himself go talk to her after all, but seemed to think Jack may know what to say better -maybe because he is a doctor?- and wanted him to go deal with it. Jack DOES do his best to keep people alive to get them back to health but I think it is Boone who was more "aware" of what their little society needs as well as the "emotional" needs and he pushed Jack to take care of those too.
So, yes, I love Boone. He is adorable. He seems to be lacking in the lifeguard qualities and probably would be better if he realized he does but he IS keeping guard over all (not just Shannon) and trying to help them all, if not by doing something himself, by getting someone who can to help them. And I do like that he is one of the few take-charge/responsibility people in the island and also one of the -fewer- "think for the greater good of all" ones.
