Well, turns out, I just couldn’t wait until Friday to watch the finale of Lost, so if you too have seen it, please join me after the jump for a natter about it.
Well, when I say ‘natter’, I mean rant; I’m seething over the outcome and feel robbed of thousands of Lost hours that are, well, Lost.
If you haven’t seen the finale yet, the article that follows will contain major spoilers, so don’t read on! You have been warned.
Now, come children, let us take apart this final episode…
Let me start this piece by saying that, if was allowed to, this article would be full of swear words…
I’ve been a devotee of Lost from the get go, and never before in the history of TV watching has anything disappointed me more than the Lost finale.
It was s$5&* and I am so p^***: about it.
So they were dead…
What?! All along? Just season six? What?!
It was so Bobby Ewing in his shower I could vomit.
Nothing but nothing got explained. I was waiting for answers to questions such as what was the Dharma Initiative’s part in all this? What was so ‘mystical’ about The Numbers? Where’s Walt?
What was the Hanso Foundation stuff all about? Or Daniel Faraday/Widmore’s time popping?
Yes, ok, literally speaking, one could assume that every single thing that’s happened since 815 crashed has been the result of the Losties being ‘in limbo’ or something similar, and here’s what really, really gets my goat, crumbles my cheese… or any number of other metaphors…
WE ALL GUESSED THAT AT THE START!!!
One of the very first theories I, and millions of others, expounded was that the Losties were in fact dead and were in some transitional place before going on to their greater reward.
Lindelof and Cuse denied it. All along, they said ‘nope, they’re not dead, they’re not in limbo.’
We were told to be patient and all would be revealed.
I was patient, and **** all was revealed.
To be honest, with Lost being as intricate as it has been, I hadn’t expected the ending to satisfy me entirely. I’d expected some things to remain a mystery. But why, oh why, resort to such a pants soap opera ending?
I could’ve come up with something better than that. A baboon could’ve come up with something better than that actually.
So, having had my rant, over to you.
What did you think of the finale?
