    There are a ton of things to comment about but a few random thoughts. Only Hurley, Jack and Sawyer can see people that have died. Even Richard couldn't. Kate can't either. I think Jin was one of the candidates because Sun was stuck in all of the metal from the explosion but he chose to be with Sun. Not sure how any of that matters but just some thoughts.

    Hey guys. I have been a LOST fan ever since episode 1. I have seen every episode and even have all the dvds. I could give a ton of comments but I won't. I just ask that you please turn off Kathy's mic on Monday the 24th because I have had it with her being a luke warm fan and asking dumb questions. Just kidding Kathy. Seriously though you guys need to cut her loose. She's dead weight. Thanks. You guys rock.

    A fitting finale for a great show. Everyone is entitled to their opinion on the meaning but I believe what happened, happened. I am quite satisfied with this appropriately thought provoking and emotional ending.

    I stopped trying to figure out every nuance. I just loved to watch the characters, and the scenery and hear the emotional music. The reason so many Preston and Steve fans are also Lost fans is that many episodes made your head feel like it would explode. That's the same feeling we get when Preston and Steve have a medical or scientific discussion. Coincidence? I'm gonna miss that feeling from lost. Thank God we still have the show to make us feel that way.

    They couldn't of died in the plane crash like the caller said because Jack would of had no idea who anyone was...no memories with them. So the island was the actual reality. The island had all this strange power and events that we didn't get answers to, like who gave Jacob's mom the power, and who built the wheel, why was the island able to time travel and have electro-magnitism etc..? Each character died at different times...so the people on the plane got off the island and eventually died at some point in their natural lives, Ben and Hurley remained on the island and eventually died at some point, and Jack died as we saw him die...it's just that Jack took the longest to get out of his "purgatory" place aka the sideways reality....remember that Jack's dad said the church place had no time, so for example, maybe Kate died well into her 60s but in the church they all appeared as when they last knew each other and formed that bond on the island. There are still so many unanswered questions though.

    Hey Guys, Everything on the island happened. Jack's father said there is no time where they were. I believe that Sawyer, Kate, Clair, etc, did fly off that island and had lived their lives. When they died (they didn't die together) they all were stopped in that place (the sideways) waiting for the others to come, WHENEVER it was their time to come. Sun and Jin were together because they died together. They couldn't move on until they all were there because that was each of their idea of heaven, to be together. Michael and Walt were not there because it was not their heaven. The scientist group, the red head, and the physist (piano player) were not there because that was not their heaven to be part of. Remember Desmond said he wasn't going to take him, I think that was what the mother was afraid of when she wanted to stop Desmond, but he was only looking for the one's who he wanted to be with. They all had to wait for each other to move on, but when they got there, they were part of each others sideways lives until they could ALL be there. Ben's heaven was not with this group. I think part of him wanted it to be, and they forgave him and were allowing him to come, but maybe he was going to wait for Alex. I think you needed your great love to move on.

    Redemption was a major theme of the show. Whatever the island was, it offered one more chance for those on it to right their lives. The bonds that were formed between everyone in that church is what bonded them in the afterlife. So in a way, we were given most of the explanation the moment Richard said "you're all dead" even though he thought they were down below because of the frustration of what he had been through...because they weren't in fact dead yet.

    I started watching the show in season three so i could follow what the hell u guys were talking about. While i was a little disappointed that dharma etc didnt seem to have a point, i guess everything in our lives gets us to the next place in our lives, so it mattered on some level. it seems they decided to only answer the two main questions, jack's dad said it was all real and now they are dead. all done...
  11. moose6165 posted on 05/24/2010 09:02 AM
    well i will like to say that i liked everything that was done wish we could have had more answers but we got the meat of it. the light is suppose to represent life and the smoke monster is a grim reaper kind of being. it shows you your past and decides whether you deserve to cross over or not. the beginning of the season was jack waking up on the plane. and at the final scene last nite you see jack looking at the plane before he dies. so at that moment he wakes up on the plane at the beginning of the season for this year. it is the afterlife the side world. it's not running in real time with the stuff on the island. if you notice church when jack walks in it house a representation of all the major religions in the world. so its not a church as you would think. from the sixth sense they say that when people die they don't know it. so when they run into what made them the happiest or complete a task of importance they found the life that they left and become complete so they are ready to move on feeling that they fullfied what mattered. i know its not the answers we are looking for but it shows that love is eternal and that bond can't be broken in life as in death it will always last. you don't see mike because he and the whispers are stuck on the island to help others to realize their importance. or they are their to work off their debt before they are able to move on. just my thoughts hoped it was more confusing like everything in the show.

    The Dharma Initiative exists to only be summed up as one sentence. You can't control this island. The Island is not part of anything thing that we can comprehend.

    All the people on the radio that say they died in the original crash ( Juliet and Ben weren't on the plane) did not listen to what Jack's father said: Some died before him, some long after. Whatever happened on the island, happened. We will never know all the mysteries of the island, but Jack died saving it and Hurley took over. The "lost" souls as it were, reconnected after all had eventually died, because as Jack's father stated this was the defining moment in all there lives, the time together on the island. That is why Kate said I have missed you so much, she lived on after Jack had died. Interesting touch was how Desmond at the party/concert seemed to be a nod to Meet Joe Black. To me it was a touching, thought provoking conclusion and satisfying in the respect that that the island did bring them all happiness in the end, except for poor misguided Ben, it seems as if he can't follow them as he committed to many sins to leave purgatory.

    My questions is why was Penny in the church at the end?She wasn't even on the island...I also agree w/Paul R.about Kathy.CUT HER LOOSE!!
  15. JamieL_9 posted on 05/24/2010 10:07 AM
    Your posts have helped alot with my questions! Did anyone notice Kate's outfit was different? Now I realize why Aaron could have been there and maybe Ben was still alive and protecting the island. I missed part of the beginning of the Lost recap - were we told about Sayid and the water and if it made immortal or something?

    Amazing show... for 6 seasons I watched in awe of probably the best show ever to be on network television in my lifetime. the ending was superb, and although a lot of the menial questions didn't get answered... I think we all got closure on the real meaning of the show. Going to miss the cast and the story. I don't think there will EVER be a series that captivates me the way Lost did.

    I loved the ending. It makes total sense to me. To everyone who said that they died in the original plane crash did not listen to Jack's Dad in the end. everything happened, because Jack's Dad said that these people were around the important parts of their life and some of them died early and lived much longer then you. Sooo..I feel everything happened on the island and everyone died when they did. I feel Hurley and Ben stayed and protected the island till they died, everyone that left the island on the plane lived their lives, and Jack died when he died at the end. The reason Penny was in the church was that all the couples were reunited even crappy Shannon with Sayid. Michael was not in the Church for his soul is stuck on the island same as to anyone else who died for no real cause on the island. Charlie is in the church for he died to protect everyone. Ben is waiting outside the church for he is not ready to move on for he has so many things he has to figure out about himself. I loved the ending of the show. It was great. It was so sad, but I was happy Jack didn't die alone with Vincent right by his side.

    Amazing! There's tons still not answered, but it wouldn't be LOST without some thought left over :-P Loved the finale and will miss this show greatly! THANK YOU LOST FOR 6 WONDERFUL SEASONS!!!

    I'm a sucker for a happy ending. I agree that all of the questions weren't answered, but I liked the idea that like the"Five People You Meet In Heaven", your heaven could be, spending eternity with the people you love.
  20. MaureenD posted on 05/24/2010 01:56 PM
    Loved the ending last night. Well done and I never expected all of my questions to be answered. My mind was challenged and I was totally engaged for six years. That's entertainment. Did anyone else love those awesome Target commercials during the show? They rocked!
  21. AndyC_17 posted on 05/24/2010 02:06 PM
    I agree there are a ton of unanswered questions. But today's Preston and Steve lost chat kind of helped me a bit. I think what happened was when Jack became the protector of the island. Jacobb said to him that he was like him and he brought them to the island because they where all flawed. So with that being said the island was made for them to do something to make there lives worth while and to be able to cross over to the other side.

    I hated the ending at first, but as I had time to let it sink in and get some sleep, I realized that the writers are leaving it up to our own interpretation. I think that when the plane crashed on the island, they all died. I just wish that the last scene would have contained some bodies to make my theory a little more plausible, but they want to keep us guessing it seems. What we were seeing was the characters in their afterlife, they didn't know that they were dead and neither did we. We followed them as they tried to get back to where they thought they belonged. It was a very strange journey along the way, and some of them made it to where they belonged before others, such as Michael and Walt. Yes, there were some people at the end in the church that weren't on Oceanic 815, but they died elsewhere. The island was where people went that didn't know that they were dead. The victims of The Black Rock, Rousseau's boat, Desmond's sailboat. These people all died at different times, but could not move on. At the end, they moved on as a group. They helped each other to move on. Jin and Sun had a very hard time. It seemed that they were unsure if they wanted to go into the afterlife together, they were tested and their love brought them together. I do admit that the whole Dharma thing seemed pointless. I can only think that it brought in a faith against science element which was a running theme between Jack and Locke. I still can't figure out Juliette. She wasn't on the plane, she was brought to the island by Ben to find out why women couldn't have babies on the island.

    It's definitely left up to interpretation, there are people and thoughts that I agree and disagree with, but I believe that's the point. Although one new point, it's interesting to see that Jack had the hardest time letting go. As a doctor, his job is to save and fix people, which is what he did for John. I've been around doctors for some time. They train to save lives in whatever capacity they chose, and subsequently have a hard time losing a life and letting go. That may be why Jack was the last one in the group to accept his own death. (Or, he's the main character and having him end the series was only fitting)

    First and foremost, the light at the center of the island is meant to be up to our interpretation. We are told that the Light is the source of Life, Death, and Rebirth, and to examine it more is to ignore the intention of the show. This show is ultimately about the connections we make in life. Six years ago we were introduced to a story that involved characters who, whether they knew it or not, were already connected. Through five seasons we watched these connections unfold. We watched as characters' past experiences shaped their actions on the island, and then we watched as these characters' experiences shaped their actions off of the island. As the sixth season began, we all believed that we were experiencing our characters' lives had they never encountered the island. Our finale showed us that what we in fact were seeing was the summation of the story: the after-effects of completing their mission in life. We watched as the sixth season revealed it's grand purpose. While it sounds like an ambitious purpose, it is actually quite finite and simplistic. Our connections in life will be far more important than the sum of our accomplishments. A few things have to be accepted as reality if you wish to appreciate this ending. The first on this list that needs to be acknowledged is that our sixth-season-flash-sideways were in fact flash forwards. In a manner of speaking. It might be more accurate to refer to them as flash-ends. I feel it's a little unfair to refer to the "side-flashes" as Purgatory. If you take Led Zeppelin's example of a Stairway to Heaven, we can reference the "sideways universe" as the platform to the steps. You haven't started on the staircase yet, but you're surely standing before it. In some capacity, our characters decided that, upon the culmination of their lives, they would "meet" at a given location, and when the "time" was right, they would know exactly what that location was. Another item on the list is that you must acknowledge that this situation of guarding the Light is a never-ending effort. As we have seen, now three times, when one protector dies, another comes to be. Allison Janey was the first Protector we met, but she surely was not the first. It is not important who came before her. It is not important who came after Hugo. To ask these questions is over-examining and again, missing the intention of the show. It would likely be fair to presume that Jacob was never intended to be the Protector, and his brother was in fact the favorite. When the brother learned the truth of his heritage, his desire to protect the island vanished. As he fell deeper in to his hole of hatred and anger, the Good in him was swallowed up. When Jacob finally sent him back to the repository of Good at the center of the island, the Black Smoke Monster emerged. I believe this happened because there was no Good left within the Man In Black to return to the well, and it certainly is not a storage location for Evil. What it comes down to is that, as Christian said in his final speech, everything that happened on that Island was quite real, and impacted every single one of our characters so profoundly that, in all honesty, their lives would have been worse had they never made it to the island. I imagine that concept is hard to swallow, given the sheer number of characters that died on that Island. Accept this, however: Jacob stated that he brought people there because they were flawed. It might be more fair to say that the island allows only flawed people there. To me, the Egyptian statue is present on the Island so as not to get a sense of the Christian concept of Original Sin. If you ignore Original Sin (thereby accepting that through one's own actions does one become flawed) you can understand why everyone could not get to this Island. It is my opinion that this finale answered every question it needed to answer. Everything that went unanswered, if you take a step back and examine it, is in the end inconsequential to the overall concept. If there is anything we should take away from this, it is that we should be more mindful of who we meet in life as opposed to what we make in life. If, when all is said and done, a small group of people can stand up at my funeral and say "He was a good man" I will be much more pleased than if a large group stood and said "He was a successful man."

    Oh, I forgot to give a hell yeah to Sawyer. That is one sexy dead man. He tagged Kate, Juliette, and Charlotte. What a wonderful afterlife!
