Exactly. It was just a writing gimmick to keep us wondering all season. If they needed to meet each other in the afterlife, then they could have all just appeared in the same place without all the nonsense of Desmond and Charlie needing to have near-death experiences in order to remember. If they were all dead in the sideways, why would anyone have a near-death expeience anyway?
A finale for a show like this, which has built itself up with six years of mysteries, needs to answer at least one or two of those mysteries. This finale didn't do that.
I understand completely. Also, part of my struggle is dealing with the death of all the characters I love (technically it's some sort of afterlife, but still...)
My biggest unanswered peeve:
1)Why and how were there still food drops by Dharma?
2)What's the big deal about keeping MIB's name unknown?
Said the exact same to my friends... Absolutely Loved it! Just still digesting those last 10 minutes or so. Reading more from y'all is helping me come to terms with it...
Goodness!! I'll miss this show, and these people, and this crazy stinkin' Island sooo much.
a nice Finale...it all flowed very well except the last 15 minutes; which really dragged...
I always thought it would be Hugo...so I'm happy how it ended...I'm also glad Ben stayed and NOT as a new smoke monster...
I'm getting a kick out of all the commercial complaints, especially since I'm reading them on a TIVO FORUM... I waited 30 minutes before watching and didn't have to see a single commercial. Didn't phase me a bit because I have a Tivo and use it.
When did Hurley die? Why was he in the church?
TV shows definitely have a huge challenge in delivering a yes on the question you identify. But is it really so bad to want the answer to be yes. It is yes for a lot of other entertainment: books, movies, plays, musicals, operas. Charles Dickens managed to write serialized novels where he certainly seemed to know where things were headed from the start. So the writers having a plan would seem to be a good thing to hope for. Does anybody affirmatively hope the writers don't have a plan?
How are people still missing this? It was NOT purgatory, what we just watched for six years. The only thing that was purgatory was the flash-sideways, which have clues provided in lines by Kate, Ben and Hugo.
1) That question and some other ones will be answered on the season six DVD.
2) The producers have said they will not reveal his name as it's not important to them.
I can't believe it's over. Slowly sinking in for me.
Wow. No sir. You need to watch again. The island was real.
He died at some point in the future. We don't know. But he was there for his friends.
You should try and re watch the end
Jack saw the plane before he died. And Jin and Sun both saw how they drowned. Hurley was the keeper of the island for awhile after Jack.
We don't know. Could be hundreds of years after the events of the finale.
I haven't posted much lately, but I'm always reading the excellent discussion here about LOST. I wanted to weigh in and say that I hope it's not as simplistic as "they all died in the crash," or "the sideways flashes were purgatory."
Given that, I'm wondering what was up with showing the wreckage in the end? Was it to show us that there were no survivors? I saw what looked like man-made structures in the background which supports the theory that they survived the crash, but I could be wrong.
Alternately, if the sideways flashes were their "purgatory," then (a) the first 5 seasons were pretty irrelevant, and (b) why weren't Lipidis, Miles, or Richard there?
Lipidis, Miles, and Richard not being there lend some support (in my mind) to the theory that they've been dead since the beginning due to the fact that none of them were on Oceanic 815.
Obviously, I still need to process this a bit...
Personally, I don't think they died in the crash, but the finale was pretty intense so I want to re-watch.
If that is the case why did they have to wait for others like Jack etc.
You needed to wait more like 45-50 minutes. I waited 32 minutes and ran out of buffered program to fast forward through just a bit later than the 1:45 mark. So I had to find something else to do for a little bit before continuing... actually didn't bother going back to finish watching till it was almost over (live), anyway.
More importantly, Breaking Bad will momentarily clear out the horrible taste left in my brain from Lost.
So why did Jack have a son with Juliet in the sideways? What was the point of that?
I don't like how they made the series finale all about the stuff that happened this season. It's like the previous 5 seasons didn't even matter.
If you found the slightest bit of emotion in the ending, it refutes this comment entirely.
