Well, it’s all over. I’ll certainly miss it.
I really enjoyed the end. I think it resolved stuff pretty well. Sure, it didn’t give answers to many of the, uh, many questions people have, but ultimately that isn’t what Lost was about.
It was, of course, about the characters. Those characters that we’ve come to know and love over the last 6 years (ok, and perhaps hate… ) I think it was a pretty good resolution for all of them.
Jack died, and the show ended on a scene very similar to the very first one. But, everyone died… after however long. They didn’t die as a result of the plane crash or the bomb, but of individual reasons, some of which we witnessed; and once they did, they met up in the sideways world, with the realization of their lives. That’s my take at least. Though I’m not sure whether the sideways world actually happened of if it was part of the ‘afterwords’ bit.
As for why Ben didn’t want to go into the church? He was aware, but not ready? Perhaps he’s gonna spend some more time with Alex.
I think ultimately Ben ended up being a good guy. Hurley was grateful for his help as number 2, and he didn’t go on as big a killing spree as the last episode suggested he might.
Something about the fight between Locke and Jack reminded me of the fight between Anakin and Obi-Wan in episode 3. It was a pretty epic fight & Kate getting to finish the job was rather appropriate somehow. It also explained the mark on Jack’s neck; I thought that would come up since it came up in last weeks episode again.
There were lots of bits in this episode that made me laugh. Hurley, as usual, was behind a couple, but the conversation between Mocke & Jack was pretty funny.
“That’s kinda true dude, he’s worse than Yoda” – Hurley
“What was that?” – Sayid… “That was Charlie” – Hurley
“I don’t believe in a lotta things but I do believe in duck tape” – Miles
Well, I’ll leave it at that for now. Here’s hoping something lives up to Lost someday. Until then, there’s Fringe, which is pretty damn good if you ask me. Oh, and you should watch this video and perhaps this one too. Just incase you haven’t yet realised what it’s gonna be like without Lost.
I kid… kinda
