    It's also fitting that they used a stopper in the well - a reference back to the wine bottle analogy.

    I really liked how they did the switching from sideways to island scenes. It really kept the ride going. I loved this episode. Oh yeah, still may be some questions or such but it tied it all up and it felt good.

    Well sure. But remember this is an island that has dead people waking around and smoke monsters and healing water and special electromagnetic properties and moves around the earth etc etc etc

    Are you to expect that a nuclear bomb would have the same effects here that it does outside of the island?

    I'm still digesting the show--but one thing for sure this finale was excellently directed and acted and the soundtrack stirred the emotions.

    I suppose that makes as much sense as anything that happened on this show.

    The island [story] is [something we can make crap loads of money on in a sequel so we shouldn't give away everything]. Questions Answered [in another 5-6 years].

    There - I fixed it for you.

    I loved the one that read "I never understood Trekkies, until I became a Lostie". I laughed out loud at that one. I am both a trekker and a lostie.

    It was really good. There was soooo much to get through but I think they tied it all up rather neatly. I had been disappointed that this season was all about Jacob and MIB. Tonight brought everything else together.

    Sure that also but weird things happen on the island will have to do for now.

    The church was still in purgatory. Vincent (like all dogs) gets to skip that step :)

    Well since that's all we're given and it is clear the writers don't actually know the answers to these questions, I suppose that's true.

    I don't remember you from the Lost threads, so I checked. You don't seem to be a fan. You've made your point. Move along now. I'm more interested in criticism from people who actually like the show.

    When they were in the church and Christian was there, I wondered where the horse was. The next thing we saw was Vincent. LOL!

    The whole question about the statue with 4 toes always cracked me up. I never considered that a question. Civilizations have statues all the time for religious reasons, and they are often nonsensical. Just look at the Egyptians. Just take it as a sign there was an ancient civilization that once lived there.

    As for the rest, the island was magical, had special properties, there is no possible logical explanation they could ever offer.

    Look at animation. How often does a character have 5 fingers? They always have 4 or less. I view this the same.

    I think that they did a great job of wrapping the story up. The amount of exposition of the island mysteries seemed about right to me. Much more would have been lame in comparison to just leaving the mystery. I enjoyed the flash sideways resolution. I didn’t guess what was going on until the end.

    I'm more confused with this show than I ever was. Good emotions though with the characters remembering each other.
