    While I don't think I buy the idea that unJacob is Jacob, it brings up an interesting question. Maybe the rule to which the unJacob seeks a loophole is, in fact, the Faraday Postulate. Maybe unJacob knows that he never kills Jacob because one or both of them has information from the future saying that he didn't (and whatever happened, happened). But this way, he can get to be the one to do it without being the one to do it.

    Here's an idea: I think Bernard and Rose are the key to the series. At the beginning of this episode, Jacob and BSG indicated that people come to the island, get into conflict, and fight, either within their own group (Rosseau's party), or with others (Dharma vs Hostiles, Oceanic vs Others, etc.) Bernard and Rose are the only ones to just quit the conflict. I think that will play a big part next season.

    Okay, very late to the conversation because I waited a week to watch the finale. I was trying to wait to watch with my husband, but I didn't quite make it. So here are my late thoughts. (If I'm repeating someone, forgive me. I've read the whole thread, but my memory isn't what it used to be.)

    First, Unlike some here, I'm not worried that next season won't focus on the original Losties. Probably not a spoiler, but just in case:

    When they show 2010, then "Destiny Found" that can only refer to this group of people we've been following who have been LOST.

    Second, the reverse logo has to mean something is different now, but what? It's still possible they changed the past. More likely that that "what happened, happened," and they've always been part of The Incident, and now they've jumped to 2007. (One way or another I think they have jumped to 2007.)

    Third, I agree Locke didn't get a good send-off, so I'll be disappointed if "dead is dead" and that's all there is for him. The idea that Ben has just been a dupe all along is also a bit disappointing, so I'm hoping there's more there as well.

    Fourth, I thought the phrase "what's done is done" (used by Sawyer in this episode) is interesting. It's very similar to "what happened, happened," but with a different focus. "What happened, happened" means you can't change the past. To me, "what's done is done" means you shouldn't, even if you can.

    Finally, I want to thank everyone here for adding to my enjoyment (and understanding) of Season 5.

    O.T. Well after 2002 there hasn't been much to talk about. :D Still I marvel at those with 15,000 posts in a year or two.

    Richard was passing messages to Ben. We have no way of knowing whether or not those communications originated from Jacob.

    Don't get me started with Gia again.

    I like her more with short hair:

    I still think Kate is by far the hottest babe on the show.

    Wow. One would think they'd remember that it happened during NIGHT TIME, not during the day as is clearly shown in the pictures.

    I just finished the Finale. This show is such a mind f&*k. I completely missed out on many of the points made here. I really hope, at some point, there is like a 2 hour clip show or something where DL & CC explain the whole story from beginning to end, with all the little things that most ordinary fold would have not caught onto.

    These two guys are just amazing storytellers. I don't know that I've seen another show that was so well planned out where they knew exactly what the end game was and how they were going to get there. Most other shows seem like they are making up the story as they go along season to season or even episode to episode. The theological, historical, and biblical references are so far over my head but their wide understanding of it all makes for a really great show. It's obvious they know what they are doing since they constantly reference previous events, which when first seen seemed like bizarre throwaway incidents.

    yeah, it really is.. i saw one episode the other night when hugo and sayid are sitting on the beach with the fixed radio and that old song comes on, and hugo references time travel.

    wouldn't be surprised if the last shot of the show is hugo standing on that spot on the beach with a boombox over his head john cusak style playing that song trying to send a message to himself haha (i am just kidding, don't want to get dinged for a spoiler ;))
