After last night’s Lost season finale, I’m sad. I feel like I went to a funeral! Is it bad when fictional characters affect your real life? Sheesh.
Let’s see. I’m assuming you watched, so let’s try it this way:
The Looking Glass:
Charlie jams the blocking system. He sacrifices himself while saving everyone including Desmond. Charlie was great! He was funny, smart and heroic. At first I thought, “Why in the world don’t you close the door BEHIND you?!” But I think he felt like he had to die in order for Desmond’s premonition to come true. He did it out of love for Claire and Aaron! And did you see him cross himself in the water? That was so Charlie. Now that Desmond knows it’s not Penny’s boat, he’s going to have to let everyone know. Well, I guess Locke & Ben know anyway…we’ll get to that…
The Losties get to the Radio Tower to be met by Ben & Alex. Rosseau is reunited with her daughter. Ben gets bloodied. Locke reappears. Naomi dies. They make the call.
Did you notice how similar Kate & Rosseau look? They always have the same outfit, bag and hair. It’s kinda freaky.
Sawyer killed Tom. I don’t know, that was weird for me. I feel like we’ve been seeing this “little boy” in Sawyer the past few weeks and tonight he just snapped. Maybe out of love for Kate and their (hopefully) unborn baby?!
I was so happy to see Ben get beat up! He’s been needing that for several weeks! But why didn’t he just explain to Jack what the deal was? Ben is usually the master manipulator. When he said to Richard, “I’m going to talk them out of it.” I thought, “Yep. He’s gonna do it.” But all we got was, “Get me the phone.”?! Come on!
Locke isn’t dead! Locke isn’t dead!
Walt is not Walt. I think Walt=Jacob=the black smoke=the apparitions. I think the black smoke can be whoever it needs to be to make others protect the island. Ben sees “Jacob”. Locke saw Walt. Just my theory. But regardless, Locke somehow understood what his work was: to protect the island and make sure the Losties don’t get found.
Locke is hard core enough to knife a woman in the back but he can’t even shoot Jack in the hand? Why didn’t he shoot the phone? Ugh. I actually wanted him to shoot Jack in the head. Wouldn’t that have been great? I guess there would have been no “science” to balance Locke’s “faith”. But I think the decision to not kill Jack is an intregal point to the rest of the series.
First let me say, I was not looking forward to a Jack flashback. You know how I feel about him. And the whole time I kept saying, “What is up with him? He’s been a drunk, single, married, a hero, a divorcee, had an affair with a tattoo artist and now he’s addicted to prescription drugs? Where is this going?” And when he met that car at the airport and that freaky music started playing, I knew something bad was about to happen. It was a flash-FORWARD!
Noooooo! I am so upset about this. If this is really what the Losties future holds, I’m sad. And what can the next 3 seasons bring?
Who was in the casket? Please, please, please don’t be John Locke. If it is that means Locke got of the island, which he didn’t want. And probably killed himself. You can see a screen shot of the obituary. Maybe it was Ben. Not Sawyer. NO.
Jack asked for his dad? I’m sorry. The man was jacked up (ha!) on medication. His dad is not upstairs.
A few questions about some stuff Jack said to Kate: “I can’t lie anymore.” Lie about what? “We have to go back!” Why? What does he need to finish or accomplish? Or does he just not fit here anymore? There are so many questions about that conversation. Lostpedia has a good list here.
I feel like someone died. I’m very sad if we really saw the future of the Losties. Season 4 Episode 1 better shed some light on that. I feel like we *ahem* lost something last night. Well, only 8 more months until we find out what happens…kinda.
