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 – The Last Recruit [spoilers, duh]

Thoughts:

  • Confirmed: MiB can take on the appearance of only those that are dead, and on The Island
  • Confirmed: Flocke = Christian Shephard. WHAT THE FRAK? NO. CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD != FLOCKE. HOW CAN THAT BE? >.< See my theory on why this can’t be. Reading this again, an additional argument in my favour was the scene when “Christian Shephard’ appears on the freighter to Michael; how could that be, if Flocke cannot leave The Island?
  • “Because Jacob chose you, you were trapped on this island, before you even got here”
  • Does Flocke actually need The Candidates to get off The Island? Why? All he seemingly needs to do is kill them
  • “John Locke was not a believer, Jack. He was a sucker”. Wow, way to devalue Locke’s 4.5 seasons of faith in The Island and Jacob
  • Sun recognised Flocke in the flash sideways, I assume
  • Sayid can’t have killed Desmond. What does that mean though? Did Desmond tell him something to stop him from killing him, or is Sayid not as evil as Flocke thinks he is?
  • I’m impressed on the casting of mini Jack Shephard 
  • “We’re done going back, Kate” Yeh, haven’t heard that before! See you there in two eps, Sawyer
  • Jack Shephard. The last recruit
  • Am I the only one that expected Shannon to show up? @marawlings has pretty much convinced me that he’ll choose Shannon, and not Nadia, for whatever reason. She’ll be in the next episode
  • And speaking of the next episode, according to DarkUFO, there’s a hiatus next week
