LOST – The End [spoilers, duh]

24-05-2010_10-38-55_pm

LOST began with the black credits fading into Jack Shephard’s right eye opening, while he lay there in the bamboo field, and it ended with Jack Shephard’s right eye closing, lying in that same bamboo field, fading into those same black credits. Why not just call the show ‘Full Circle’ or ‘Mirrors’? I’ve watched the last 30 seconds several times now, and the finale twice, and the whole series twice, and I’m satisfied with the end.

I’ve slowly come to a realisation over the years that The Island and the mythology that came along with it was just a backdrop for a show about people, and that more than came through in the finale. Sure I want answers, and I feel I’ve got more than enough of them, but for the diehards that watched LOST until the very end hoping that every answer would be presented in a box, nicely tied with a ribbon, I’m sorry, you probably didn’t get what you wanted out of the finale.

LOST – Everybody Loves Hugo [spoilers, duh]

Thoughts:

  • Michael! I’ve missed you!
  • Hugo gets his first date. Awww. “you don’t remember me do you?… Island… Plane crash.” What the frak? Is there really some connection with dead people being aware of what happened on The Island in the flash sideways?
  • Oh snap! *boom* goes Ilana. Guess she wasn’t important then… Seems like a lot of time invested in her for no reason
  • What’s with the smug look, kid? This kid must be the higher power that “cast” Jacob and/or MiB in their roles on The Island.
  • The Whispers. Explained. Tick that off the list. People stuck on The Island because of what they did/their “sins”. “The ones who can’t move on”. Feels like I need to revisit every ep with The Whispers and look for appearances which i previously thought were Smokey
  • Really? “love” is the trigger? Feels like a bit of a cop out… Ok, love and car crashes! Or any sort of, what, trauma?
  • So, Locke’s facial expression changed, and it felt like he had that moment of realisation, but did his eyes change colour? @marawlings has been going on about this eye colour thing for the whole season. Will need to re-watch.
  • There was NO mirror scene in this ep as far as I can tell
