I HATED IT.


It's freaking DEATHLY HALLOWS all over again!


WHY MUST THEY RUIN EVERYTHING I LOVE?!?!
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

Did they just... are we to believe that... they played the HEAVEN card?
Uuuuuuuughhhhhhhhh.

I guess in the end that's what we should have expected from a show that was based from the start on creating as many crazy ass questions without resolutions as possible. Once you get that far in to a show without a solid basis for finishing it from the start, you get some form of 'great unknown' as a finale.

Hell, it worked for BSG didn't it?

I mean, they didn't really answer anything. At all. Though I suppose I did like everyone getting back together. But where was Walt and his father? What happened to the people on the plane? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
Uuuuuuuuuuuuugh.

Maybe it'll grow on me?
Ugh.

I think I would have liked it better had they ended it with everyone on the original time line dead, the island sunk, and them "flashing over" to the better time line where everyone is together and happy and 'evil' is defeated. Yes, this shall be the ending I just watched. *nods*

Sounds good to me.

Yeah, all the on island action sat ok with me but the alt-world revelations kind of ruined everything that's previously happened there. Does it matter that some people were having happier lives without the island? Did those lives really happen? Those people just don't seem to exist any more so I'm not really quite sure why we've been following them this season except as a weird 'what-if' that actually isn't building to anything.

Was David real? Was the world a shared after-life they built together or was it a literal world created by the bomb? Plus making it completely fantastical raises questions about why certain characters were present while others weren't.

And we never saw the other side of the outrigger shoot-out, and people having been island hopping in the things all season. But Lapidus survived so it's a little bit salvageable.

This is exactly what I was dreading, and exactly what happened. Everyone remember disappearing Starbuck?

So don't go worrying about me
It's not like I think about you constantly
So maybe I do, but that shouldn't affect
Your life anymore

Thanks for posting that.

Too bad it doesn't actually answer very much. And I'm starting to get tired of the current trend of tv shows and movies relying on supplementary material to offer a complete story. There's always extra scenes on the DVD, or webisodes, or a tie-in comic book or something. :roll:

*After reading several of the comments posted*

What is everyone so pleased with? What did this epilogue tell us that we didn't already know or couldn't guess? I had already assumed that the electromagnetism on the island had something to do with the unsuccessful pregnancies. And the source of the food drops? Really, that's the mystery they decide to make an extra scene to address?

So, we got Season 6 yesterday. We started watching Season 5 to prepare. I think I noticed something new that I hadn't before.

In Season 5, the gang are in the 70s with Dharma and Sayid shoots young Ben. Sawyer and Kate bring him to the Others for them to save his life. Richard tells them that if they do it, Ben will never be the same; that by saving his life, he will lose his innocence. Then they show Richard taking him into the temple. It's the same temple that in Season 6 has the pool where Sayid comes back to life, and turns into evil Sayid.

I think they were intimating that Ben's life was saved in that same pool and that's why he turned evil (or at least lacking all normal morals) for the rest of his life.

Anyway, I don't know if anyone would notice it without watching the last season and then re-watching the earlier season.

Yeah, I remember thinking that that was the implication. The irony of course being that Sayid's attempt to prevent evil Ben from ever existing is actually what created him in the first place.

Just like any number of time travel morality tales.
