Aaron was certainly special to Claire (and to Charlie, and to Kate).
So when Desmond was experiencing "flashes" after he turned the hatches failsafe key, was he actually experiencing a different version of the limbo-world? One before he had made such deep connections to the losties?
^^ this. I found the finale to be very emotionally powerful, but the more I think about it, the more it feels like an intellectual cop-out. Why could Desmond see the sideways-verse when he was locked in the room by Widmore and bombarded with electromagnetism if it's just purgatory?
My husband asked me this morning what I thought of the finale, and I said that they might as well have jumped off a roof (I didn't much care for the end to Life on Mars either). I think I feel slightly more charitable towards it than that because it was very emotionally satisfying, but not a lot.
Nobody touches Pete's piece!
Obviously. I'm talking about the overall story though. As in, he had no secret purpose on the island that wasn't revealed.
Go back and watch the episode again. If you compare the Ajira plane (which had no color around the windows at all, as seen by kate/sawyer from the beach when Lapidus is backing it up) to the plane on the beach at the end, they don't match at all. The plan on the beach has purple around the windows and pink and blue stripes down the side.
Edit... oops smeek.
IIRC there were multiple skeletons.
So all that rubbish about it all "ENDS" is just their lives, not the implied, the arc of protecting the island ends......more misleading stuff.
It was a fun ride, but it was not a well wrapped story, so much stuff started and abandonded until season 6.
Sorry I agree with him. Those 3 pictures are about as conclusive as it could be without matching the paint samples on a molecular level. It is a bit silly to even question it with that evidence laid out.
I wanted to point out that Sawyer referred to Miles as "Enos" in the plane during the takeoff scene, echoing the same nickname used in the sideways world earlier in the episode. To me, this speaks to the fact that Sawyer "remembered" his sideways afterlife while on the island.
Is this another continuity error or a clue to the writers' intentions?
I thought Sawyer was calling Miles "Enos" all the way back in the Dharma 70s.
Interesting thoughts on what the ending meant:
Oh, and one more thing: was Christian wearing white shoes in the church?
Yes, you're right - should have googled that first.
And the shoe had aged. It was brand new when we first saw it. When we saw it in the end, it was ragged and dirty
I think this was more of a wink to the audience. They weren't meant to know the greater significance of what Sawyer did. It was just for us to laugh and say it was the same thing.
Jack seemed to know what would happend though. He had a plan. He wasn't sure what Desmond was supposed to do but he felt sure it would allow him the chance he needed to kill MIB.
I think that Jacob was ready to die. He figured MIB would find a loophole at some point and I think he was ready to move on anyway. His job was to find the next protector and then his job was done and he could rest.
There were many skeletons. I think others had found the place before but only someone like Desmond who was immune to electromagnetic energy would be able to get to the light. The others were drawn by the light but died because they couldn't tolerate the energy.
Thanks GDG76 you saved me from having to post that..
Multiple skeletons, totally backing up the idea that there were probably many people who tried getting to the light (and at least one that did prior to smokey, leading to the stone carving depicting a smoke monster from long ago.
Sad thing is, if Jacob goes to purgatory like our Losties did, his church would be empty.
I noticed it was black... as if she were going to a large funeral.
Whoa, caught up! Post #640.
I also just remembered, MC Gainey was on Brisco as well. I love when producers reuse their actors!
I've been refreshing off and on all day. I can keep this up all week.
