Lost: Episode 6:17 The End

The end indeed. Arguably the most anticipated series finale in history has been and gone and there are a lot of happy, sad and indifferent fans! Click to get my take on it, and a look at why I think Lost became the phenomenon that it did...

I remember the first time I caught Lost on tv. It was the second or third ep I think. It didn't seem too impressive, but something about it made me watch the following week..and well, here we are! It was the characters. Sure the mysteries of the island kept me glued too, but that was only a setting for these peoples lives and stories to play out. The format of focusing on a different character every week and giving them a flashback(the forward, then sideways) allowed for some of the best character development in any series we have ever seen. The writing, while at times confusing of course, was top notch and the performances first class. Of course it had its problems. It was a bit too glossy at times, and required a few dozen leaps of logic a week while we wonder how on earth everyones hair and make up stays the same! But that sort of thing is nit picking when everything thats really important is of such a high standard. But then came season 3, and when the show began to answer questions with more questions, and took a pretty definitive veer into sci-fi territory a lot of fans lost patience and wrote it off as simply being made up as the writers went along week by week. That may have been the case at times, but isn't that true of every episodic tv show? No entire story is ever written in one sitting after all. I got frustrated too, and some episodes outright sucked. But I am glad that I stuck with it.

The finale will certainly be a divider. I have already seen heated debate online and outright abuse leveled at the show's finish. I'm not going to do my usual recap of events and instead just talk about the big picture. Did we get the answers we wanted? Not really. Certainly I have more questions! But then from another perspective we got the only answer worth getting, and the only one thats really important. We see what happens at the end. Before that, we get some damn fine action and drama. This one really does play out like a Lost movie. I would have been very happy watching it at the cinema. Jack and Un-Locke have their final confrontation in which Jack is mortally wounded and Un-Locke killed after being made mortal by Desmond taking a rock out of a hole! Yeah we don't really find out how or why, or what this cave of light really is. I mean I assume its supposed to be the center of life, death, rebirth..everything. The epicenter of Something which burns in all of us. Again, would have been nice to get a proper answer, but for me it just wasn't that important in the end. We find out that Richard and Frank are alive (yay) and they and Miles make it to the Ajira plane and do some pretty damn miraculous repairs(remember those leaps of logic?:)Jack stays to put the rock back in the hole with Hurley and Ben while Sawyer and Kate race to make the plane. They do, and Frank gets them in the air. Meanwhile Jack hands over the responsibility of the island to Hurley because he knows he won't be coming back from the cave. Ben stays too, as Hurley's "number 2". So Jack manages to turn on the light again, as everyone in the flashsideways world lets go and wakes up to the realization that they are in fact dead. Jack is the last to do so and meets his father at a church, before joining his friends and moving on somewhere. Heaven? I dunno, that would imply that they are in purgatory first and I really don't think thats it. To me it seems more like their collective consciousness' creating this place themselves. Like Christian says, somewhere for them all to come back to to be with the people that had the biggest impact on their lives. As we see island Jack succumb to his wounds in the same spot he landed on the island in, with Vincent lying by his side and his friends flying overhead in the Ajira plane, the final shot of Lost is Jack Shepard's eye closing, just as it was his eye opening in the pilot. Its pretty emotional stuff. All through this, the sideways characters revelations as they come to terms with what is happening really gets the lump in the throat going! But of course that "they were dead all along" ending has caused some outrage. And also some confusion, I'm not sure how anyone that was actually listening to what was being said could think this, but a lot of folks online seem to think that they were dead all along, from the first plane crash. Everything that happened happened, they just met up in the afterlife when they all eventually died. Because like Christian said to his son, they needed each other. Its sounds sappy, but sometimes sappy is a good thing! These friends that experienced so much together and ultimately strove to over come their own failings and live together instead of dying alone received their reward when they passed on. So we don't get a lot of answers, we don't find out what type of lives Sawyer, Kate, Frank, Desmond, Miles, Richard, Hurley and Ben lived after the island. Would it have been nice to know? To find out everything? Of course, but ultimately, at least for me, it didn't matter. For me the Lost finale was disappointing in some ways but after watching it again just now, I realized that it was only because it wasn't what I was expecting, and maybe not how I would have like to see things end..but then I didn't really want it to end! I think if all along the most important thing for you was the shows mysteries and getting answers to specific questions(and don't get me wrong, I wanted some too) then you will have been disappointed. Certainly there are some huge plot holes and thinking back over the earlier seasons, outright baffling plot choices. But if you loved Lost because of the characters then you will be happy with how things went for the most part I think. I can't argue with the outraged masses either though, I think if your disappointed you have good reason to be. But maybe after a bit of time to mull it over, and maybe even a second watch, you might think that maybe this wasn't such a bad send off for these folks after all. Cheerio Lost, thanks for the memories..and for putting Kate in that dress for the finale:)

There a lot of Lost compilations online, but this one contains 5 pretty damn great scenes.

great write up ror. we basically had the same opinion. same as billyblack. since we are all true fans and we are completely satisfied it makes me feel even better about the finale. i dont get all the downright anger either, or the people not understanding. i can see being upset but as you said some of the meanness is just ridiculous. as billy said i will miss these write ups and our discussions. almost as much as the show. thanks for the weekly platform.

Cheers pooch, I commented on your article there. I actually got a lot more from it watching it for the second time. And Vincent lying beside Jack floored me both times!
Cassidy - 5/24/2010, 6:30 PM
yeah i saw you commented. thanks man. and as you saw in my comments i cry everytime i think about that scene. dammit its happening again!!!!! the fact that i have a lab that looks just like vincent, as you can tell from the avatar, really makes it even more emotional. the more and more i think about the show the more and more i loved the ending and realize im gonna miss it immensely. oh well, i still have 24 to look forward too....oh wait...dammitt!!!!!!!!
superdog - 5/24/2010, 6:37 PM
I loved the finale. I would be nice to have the answers, but it seems the bluray will have some, anyway. Got nice and teary eyed watching last night, haha. I'm gonna miss it :(

Good bye Lost, I knew thee well :_(

Superdog said it all.

The only thing that would make me happier would be to sit around a table with you friends of LOST, endlessly recounting and debating the events on the Island with frosted mugs of ale in hand.

Cheers to you Cassidy! Your write-ups will be missed.

To all of you... See you in another life Brotha!
BillyBlack - 5/24/2010, 9:23 PM
BILLY@ I like to think we're all doing that right now in some sideways alternate reality. Hopefully were not all dead though :)
superdog - 5/24/2010, 9:33 PM
Just as soon as I finished watching the Finale tonight I came here to see how you guys felt it went. I am happy with how they did it, but also sad that it will not return. Now I'm going to watch it again just to see Kate in that little black dress, yum.
THESWOF - 5/24/2010, 10:47 PM

In regards to Lost, I admit I stopped watching after season 2 but I have heards fan reviews and complaints, etc on the finale. My cousin was angry with the ending and I shared with her a line I heard from Supernatural and I think they really hit the nail on the head in regards to endings and I think its fitting for Lost.
This is a clip from Supernatural's finale and sorry I couldn't find one smaller that I could copy and paste. The scene I'm talking about is from 0:45-1:09.

InstigatorGIRL - 5/25/2010, 3:55 PM
ig@ i have never seen supernatural......but with all due respect based on that clip it looks like crap :)
superdog - 5/26/2010, 12:44 PM
i was wondering why the hell miles' dad was still alive at the concert because he actaully was right there at the time it happened when the H bomb went off, he would have died and it pissed me off kinda at that scene but... then it turned out they were all dead so it made sense. I loved the finale. i also found it funny how in the pilot and the first season how jacks hair was really short then in the flash sideways when he was still in the plane his hair got long :) lol
soperman - 5/26/2010, 2:37 PM
@Superdog LOL. Its all good I feel the same way about Lost and I've watched at least 2 seasons of it as oppose to one short clip. LMAO. Hater. =P

Things i have seen in terms of computer memory is the fact there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must match the features of the motherboard. If the personal computer’s motherboard is fairly current while there are no operating-system issues, changing the memory literally takes under sixty minutes. It’s one of several easiest personal computer upgrade techniques one can picture. Thanks for giving your ideas. canli bahis oynanan siteler
