    Hey Rob,

    Still 100% sure that Desmond was trying to kill Locke when he hit him with the car, and that everyone who disagrees is an idiot? ;)

    I wonder if Ben wasn't dead, but was still on the island somehow and that's why he didn't go in.

    Also, I wonder how long Hurley was Number 1 and Ben was number 2. Again, stories that may never get told. Maybe on the DVD?

    So what was Vincent? An archangel? And why wasn't he there at the church? Don't all dogs go to Heaven?

    OK, something cool. Didn't the Pilot open with the camera zoomed in of one of Jack's eyes and it opening? While he was in the bamboo field? So it ended with Jack closing his eye(s) in the same bamboo field.

    Circle is complete stuff is kinda cool but didn't really add anything to the story.

    And yes, there are many unanswered questions, but I'd have to rate my feelings as "satisfied."

    Wait, just realized Jack's eye closed (duh). That's certainly his death.

    Many of you don't seem to get it.

    They we're not dead on the island. The alternate timeline is after they were all dead.

    Clues.

    Kate saying to Jack that she missed him.

    The exchange between Ben and Hurley.

    They all died at different times.

    I don't think you understand the ending. Same for the purgatory comment a few posts above.

    What we've been seeing all season as a flash-sideways is actually a flash-post-death. Not connected to the "present-day" island in any fashion, but rather a state that is created by people after they die to connect to others they met in their life. It isn't clear when this occurs - probably because time doesn't mean anything. The ending to the flash-sideways sequence felt fulfilling.

    Now, as far as the island is concerned, that's a massive letdown. So much is left unanswered. What was the light? Why does the rock keep things in balance? How did island-watchers come to be? Why does the island move? How does it move? Why can people leave, but at the same time Jacob didn't let them? What is up with the electromagnetism? Where/when does the island exist? Who made the statue? Why does it have only 4 toes? What about the temple? What is the smoke monster?

    So much pieces left. The writers focused on this flash-sideways ending and answered a few relatively minor pieces of the island mythology, but completely failed to tell us what the hell the whole thing was about. Very disappointed in that.

    There's no need to post it in spoilers. This is a spoiler thread.

    The flash sideways was post death. The entire Island timeline happened. The bomb didn't go off.

    Juliet said "it worked" because she was just about to die. She saw what her "life" was going to be in the afterlife.

    It was a shaggy dog story. Nothing more. That's the significance of Vincent showing up at the end.

    Exactly. Clear as day.

    Hurley and Ben ruled on the Island for quite some time, possibly.

    My only question was how did Jack get out of the hole?

    So basically, when I die, I'll have to live in a sideways reality until everybody important to me has died as well? And only then do we go into the light? Sheesh.

    It was a TV show, not a documentary.

    Why not? Sounds like a very poetic ending to me.

    Not all of the losties were in the church. Plus, desmond and Mrs. Widmore had the discussion about Daniel and not "taking" him yet. So, Ben gets time to be with his daughter and Rousseau, maybe Michael and Walt are still catching up.

    I guess a big question would be - What is Desmond?
