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.
(oh, see my initial thoughts from last night here and more recaps at Shannon‘s)
I obviously didn’t watch b/c I’m not caught up. So I only read the first few lines of your post. It is sad when fictional characters affect you so much. I watched the finale of Grey’s the other week and really couldn’t move past it for hours. It’s ridiculous.

I’m going to be reading LOST posts and analyzing theories for the next 8 months to pass the time 😛
Sawyer killing Tom also stood out to me as did Charlie’s choice to die.
I agree the Locke/Jack face-off will become a key event. If Locke was ‘protecting the island’, why didn’t he just shoot the phone?! Why didn’t he insist harder that Jack wasn’t “supposed to do that”?
Ben (Master Manipulator) had to know his (deserved) beating was coming. I wonder if it will affect Jack’s credibility with the Losties (to Ben’s liking).
“I can’t lie anymore” – I’ll have to post my humble theory on my blog… Did you notice Kate wasn’t wearing a wedding ring in the ‘future’?
Okay, I need to get back to real life and my kids LOL Thanks for stopping by and leaving a link to your post! 🙂 🙂
Here is a website I stumbled across on the Lost message boards with many screen shots.
I was terribly disappointed. I liked Charlie and thought he should have left the room and then shut the door. Well, looks like we have a few months to get over it. I keep reminding myself that it’s fiction!
I get waaaayyyyyyy too depressed over tv shows.
You didn’t say much about Charlie. I’m not so sure Charlie is gone. Do you? He’s one of my favorite characters and that part made me BAWL 🙁 What a great show that is. 3 more years of it. What will we do when it’s gone and (hehe) lost forever? I crack myself up. Ok, time for bed . . . it’s getting late and I’m getting giddy.
I heard on the radio this morning that the actor who plays Charlie was interviewed and he said his is reallly dead and not coming back.
I love that show. I love hearing your prospective as to what it’s ALL about! And the flash forward was kind of creepy.
