    Ok, I thought that purgatory was ruled out years ago by the producers...

    I was getting nervous until Christian showed up. Have to let it sit a few but now I'd go with nicely done.

    Was kind of a let down for me. The first 2hrs 15min were great, then it just fell flat for me.

    Not happy 6 years for a b.s. ending. Cannot see ever watching again. Everyone is dead. Great idea! They made this up as they went along. I don't care what they say.

    I've got to let his marinate awhile. Heady stuff. I have to deal with knowing I just saw them after death, while knowing that some of them had lives after they left the island. I wonder what those stories are like and if they'll ever get told?

    Well I just spent 2 1/2 hours laughing, crying, yelling at the tv and cheering.

    I have three pages of notes I scribbled as the episode went on and I haven't done that since season two.

    The island wasn't purgatory, which was what Darlton said all along, but the alt-timeline was.

    For some reason the only thing that really affected me was Ben apologizing to Locke at the end. I liked Ben's redemption and saving Hurley from the falling tree.

    But overall, my initial impression is...I feel cheated.

    I don't think the flash sideways (or now known as purgatory) paid off, and they still left some big questions from early in the series unanswered.

    I would rather have seen what Hurley did on the island.

    I don't think most of them were dead until the flash sideways. The flash sideways was the purgaotryesque place. Christian said some died before and some died much later. They were just all meeting in the same place when they did die.

    Are you guys serious? It didn't mean the whole show was fake/purgatory, it means the sideways stuff this year was... they all died at different times and lived in the sideways world until the last one finally passed, and then they all reemembered and could move on. It has absolutely nothing to do with the island being fake/purgatory/a dream/etc.

    I felt sad that Locke was there alone at the end. And Ben stayed behind.

    Pretty good, but too many commercials and too much stringing along. Good ending to a good series.

    Good boy Vincent! Did Jack die in that moment? I suppose so, though I suppose it's possible that Rose and Bernard helped him back to health and his story continued. Like the man once said, we're going to have to watch that again.

    The magic of the show was back in triplefold with this ending. Big thumbs up.

    Ah, what to say. My mind is still processing. Reeling?

    So, I thought jkeegan was talking about something else. Or were you? Cause that's what happened with the magic stone cork at the bottom of the waterfall, right? Pull the cork, the island magic drains out making MIB killable, then pop it back in.

    I still don't know what to make of the sideways. So, was the sidways always there, where dead people go, and we just started seeing it after the bomb? Tricky. And then, once they "know," then they can go somewhere? Hmm... Got a lot to think about here.

    Am I missing something, or were we left with more questions than answers?

    Clearly, the alternate timeline was post death. The entire island timeline then, was pre-death, and really happened?

    Or did they all actually die when Juliet set off the nuke in the hole? Since we had heard earlier that 'it worked'...

    And why were Michael and his son not in the alternate reality?

    Cue the "OMG They Were Always Dead!" confusion.

    Glad they put in that little dialog between Hurley and Ben to hopefully make it clear. Also, Sun and Jin remembered their deaths. That was the reveal.

    He saw the plane take off. He was among the first there.
