LOST - Season 6 - Page 54

post #1061 of 1122
Just popping in to say - did anyone else just love when Saywer called Flocke - Smokee? Haha best nickname ever
I am still reeling from the finale, and so sad it's over. Great 6 yrs of television, now to begin rewatching!

I loved the finale!
I knew it would come down to a huge message about "live, love, laugh". People that mean a lot to you matter in a huge way.
I'm happy about the ending, I don't need all the answers, in fact I don't even want them. I like to make my own.
And I'm sure the Losties lived good lifes, before dying, Jack smiling as the plane flew meant he knew they got out and was happy. And I loved the reunions. Jack and Kate, Sawyer and Juliette, Sayid and Shannon, Clare and Charlie, Hugo and Ben joining forces. Ah.
So much good.

And I'm glad the ending wasn't all that religious, like the last episodes. There was a time in the show when it was just way too religious for me.
Now I can ignore that.
Excellent writers.

Maybe a bit random, but who do you think was left alive on the island besides Hurley, Ben, Desmond, Rose and Bernard (and Vincent)? Did any of the Others or the second crash victims survive? I just wonder if Hurley had any people to lead. I suppose we can assume that other people might have ended up there thanks to the magnetic pull, but I have a hard time believing that every single existing person on the island was killed by Flocke, considering that Rose and Bernard survived just fine. Of course, they kept out of everybody's business.

Okay I've been rewatching in snippets all day. I just finished and I'm satisfied. Sure I'd like more answers but it was all about the characters anyway. I recently gave up on a fairly interesting book when I was halfway through it because I just didn't care what happened to the characters. The author just hadn't made me love them. With Lost it all came down to the characters for me. I would've been mad if they'd just showed Jack dying without showing what happened to him afterward but knowing he's okay made it all better.

What an intense scene between Jack and his dad at the end! Amazing stuff!

The finale was so good. Not mindblowingly surprising, but satisfying even if a little bit expected.

Yeah we can always come up with our own theories, but I don't think that makes the ending genius.....I think that makes it lazy.
I've been out of town all week but watched at the hotel. I agree with the above and it looks like I'm one of the few that was just really disappointed. I think it was a cop out ending and pretty much something they have said in the past they wouldn't do but they've said that many times. So much was unanswered and...I just didn't like the finale. The first half was ok, the second was not so much.

Even my dh was upset about the finale and he usually fiercely defends it.

I know, right?!?! So many inconsistencies even for things they've done in the past few episodes. This ending just didn't add up.

And why were so many left out of the "reunion"? Miles, Frank, Charlotte, Walt, etc.

I saw several finale spoilers that people thought were foilers. They seemed cheesy and poorly written (I read them online). But they were totally spot on...and cheesy.

Ok and the "go into the light" thing was just cheesy, too, IMO. I mean, polar bears are one thing. Going to the light past the gates to heaven was just cheestastic. Maybe it's that I'm not religious, but I always was ok with or appreciated the religious tones of the show. But I did not like this part.

And letting the light out didn't seem so bad. Especially with all the build up over it. So a volcano goes off? Whoopdie friggin doo.

As for latest LOST news-

MIB's name is really Samuel (confirmed).

I know. It seems like they totally ignored plot and the story and just went for a big happy "awwww" ending that to me was a little morbid and totally disrespectful to the characters we spent 6 years getting to know.

I re-watched today (with some fast forwarding) and I'm feeling satisfied. No, it didn't answer any of the gazillion remaining questions/mysteries aside from explaining the sideways-verse, but I did feel it was in keeping with the first two seasons of the show, which were the most character-driven/focused imo. I'm an atheist and personally feel that when you die, that's it. However, I really liked the idea they presented - a friend of mine mentioned the John Lennon quote "The love you make is the love you take." Jack REALLY needed that resolution with his dad and I'm glad it happened. I think it's unfortunate that the last few seasons strayed away from the characters' relationships with one another - I think the finale would sit better with people if we hadn't all been so focused on the action & mystery stuff for so long.

Hurley's always been "the heart of the show" - makes sense he would become guardian of "the heart of the island."

I did find myself wishing that the "awakenings" of those who died after Jack had included snippets of their lives after leaving the island - e.g. Kate and Claire at Aaron's high school graduation. (kinda like the finale of "six feet under").

Yeah, that's how I felt, too. I am still processing and struggling to make sense of it. Oh well...I guess I'll just have to remember. Let go. And move on.

Did anyone see the extra cast Q and A from Jimmy Kimmel on hulu? He mentions that a lot of the extra questions are going to be cleared up when season 6 comes out on blu ray. Which does me no good because I don't have a blu ray player. But maybe some of the answers will make it onto the internet.

I disagree with this. I think this article by Jeff Jensen really does a good job of theorizing/explaining what happened when the light went out. Not only did the island, the source of light/goodness/purity in the world, start to crumble, but people became soul-less. That's how the MIB became mortal again, and why none of the dead could gather until Jack put the "light" back at the center of the island.

From page 5 of his re-cap (page 4 had a little about this, too):

Quote:
...The unsealed chasm glowed with wine-red anger. It was as if [Desmond] had turned off heaven and unleashed hell; it was as if he had shut down the spiritual operating system of reality. As a consequence, an old curse lost its power. MIB was finally unchained from his tropical ball and got his humanity back. But in the process, MIB also turned into something that Jack could murder; the angry old man became exclusively and perilously human, wholly flesh and blood. In that protracted moment in which evil was allowed to hold sway, I think everyone — the castaways; possibly all life in the world — lost their souls. The struggle wasn't just between life and death — it was a struggle to preserve the promise of eternity from a new modality of total annihilation.

RedOak, I love Doc Jensen. He's helped me understand so much better with his columns this season. The first things I would do on Wednesdays would be watch the newest episode and then look for his column.

Does anyone just feel totally obsessed with the finale? I've watched it 2 1/2 times. Then I had to go find the best Jack/Kate clips on youtube. Then I started thinking about Sayid and Shannon and had to look that up on youtube. Ugh. I need to step away from the laptop for awhile. Ummm, okay right after I go read the EW article.

I'm sure I'll be watching it again before the DVD set comes out, but I need to take an emotional break

I wasn't able to watch the show until yesterday evening and I so much anticipated the last episode only to be left disappointed... I am still processing but something doesn't feel right.
For me it would have been a better ending if somehow by uncorking/corking the light MIB was destroyed (which he was) and then have a time shift to the side- flashes and have that as their alternate life with the crash never happening but them remembering the connection they had on the alternate reality of the island and living from then on.

Somehow the finale felt just a cop out, rushed to put an end to it. i get that many questions were not meant to be answered but really, for 6 years we're focusing so much on the weirdness of the island and at the end we get 'it doesn't really matter, we're all dying in the end and the afterlife is sooo peachy'

I don't know...maybe after my feelings settle a bit I might see it differently.

I seem to be in the minority here but i absolutely loved it!!! I thought everything that actually needed to be answered was answered, because it boiled down to a much simpler concept than all the sci-fi time travelling kind of stuff that we were all wrapped up in. I have said since season one that they were in purgatory so I guess i feel sort of vindicated too.

But basically, I thought it came down to faith, and redemption..and maybe because I *am* a religious person I felt that religion played a huge role. I did think it was interesting how in the church there was the stained glass window of many faiths there.

As a Christian person, I still see lots and lots of parallels to Christianity in the Lost island characters (not L.A.)..Jack with the spear to the side..he was Jesus..aka Jacob..of course Jacob himself could be Jacob and his twin Esau, or MIB..so many of the others were like the disciples, different ones at various times..Flocke was the devil, or the embodiment of evil. Hurley was like the disciples who didn't want to go on after Jesus death but Jack (Jesus) said he had to. Drinking from the cup could be compared to baptism (eternal life) or communion, representing Jesus blood to cleanse and redeem.

I thought it was beautiful and touching and wonderful and a perfect ending. Like Jimmy Kimmel said it was Jack's journey..but I think we also saw part of so many other characters spiritual journey. I didn't think it was a cop out at all.

It shows how so much in our lives is meaningless, just like all those details we agonized over, the same way we do in our lives right now, when it all boils down to LOVE.

And Juliet and Sawyer, I feel like I waited a long time for that. Sigh. I can't believe it's over but I do feel satisfied and happy.
