    I love how this thread is half-"What they died for" and half-"what a ride I can't believe it's almost over." It really has been quite a trip, and I can appreciate that at this point many of us are at a "coming to grips that it will be gone" moment even more than a "what does so and so mean?" (of which I'm guilty of in this thread:eek:.)

    FYI, for all those questions about Lost parties you see around the web? My LOST party is watching with my wife and running up to the computer to see what you guys say, aka what I've done since the pilot episode. :)

    I turned down multiple Lost parties because i want to watch it with Laurie like we've watched all of the episodes (and I don't want to be at a theater with people saying "who's that? What he can talk to dead people?? Oh please" etc). But I did agree to let a friend come over at midnight for a rewatch. :)

    I was at the taping of this Jimmy Kimmel show... Josh Holloway was one of the guests. I did have a moment that I felt like quite the nerd - when we were standing in line we could see Josh Holloway arriving; I found myself yelling and waving along with all the women and girls. :eek:

    I was a good time... OT; I would recommend the Jimmy Kimmel Show to anyone coming to LA and wants to catch a TV show taping - or I guess even if you live local. The show is located right on Hollywood Blvd across from the Chinese Theater so you can make an afternoon out of it, parking is easy at the Hollywood & Highland structure and they validate your parking at the show (though the traffic in that area sucks, welcome to LA). We only had to wait in line for about an hour (we were fifth in line so we could have easily spent less time in line and still gotten in).

    I've been to tapings of other shows and never had it go quite so smoothly; usually parking is a hassle with lots of walking and lots of waiting around and with nothing to do but wait.

    I hope the final episode ties in and explains what happened to Marshall, Will, and Holly.

    At least they had pylons, a monster, and storms! :) Desmond's sailing due east and arriving back at the island was similar to them taking a raft downstream and continually passing the point where they started, too. Oh, and there was time travel. And it's got the word Lost in the title. And they both have a dinosaur named Dopey that carries carts with huge strawberries.

    Ok, strike that last one.

    Any good theories on why this episode was titled "What They Died For"?

    Well, back when the aliens created the island, and were the protectors before humans had evolved to the point where they could become protectors themselves, what other kind of animal could they get other than dinosaurs to haul around strawberries? Just saying....

    There's gotta be a widget for that that admins could install somewhere.

    I like this. Yep. And what I have found is that I have been all of those people at various times during the seasons. One episode I 'get' and then the next one has me scratching my head and another one makes me 'yeah, just go with it'.

    My summer project will be to watch it from season one but a few episodes a week (or a few all in one weekend).

    So...before the finale comes on, I've been thinking more about the sideways world, and the things we learned this week.

    - We know that Desmond is Jacob's ultimate 'fail-safe'. So, is the sideways world the result of Demond? Or something that's going in his head?

    - Jack is now 'like [Jacob]'. That being the case - is the sideways world Jack's doing? We've speculated that it was Jacob's doing...maybe it's Jack's?
