Lost: The End



I can't believe I'm this happy with the finale. And absolutely SO FUCKING SAD. The Jack scene... with VINCENT... killed me! Crap. I really lost it over that. I REALLY needed all those feel-good reunions to counteract losing Jack like that. (And who knew that Sawyer would survive?) So many fic possibilities ... hey, even the didn't-work-out-for-all-eternity ship of Sawyer/Kate has infinite possibilities now that they're both part of the Ajira Six. (Mind is already whirling.) Jack and Sawyer totally have exam room reunion sex after running into each other in the hospital hallway...

In the end, I was very pleasantly surprised that their idea of Jack fits so closely with mine. (I forgot, until nearly the end, that I once ficced him going down with the island!) And so frickin' happy to see so many characters that were dead or that I thought were dead. (Although, "dead" on Lost has always been a pretty relative term.) It was like a Greatest Hits for the viewers. Awww!

I could have done without all the golden light, etc. (Ha, Jimmy Kimmel's moral for Lost: "Don't go chasing waterfalls.") But it didn't ruin the finale for me. I've gotten used to ignoring the things I'm not keen on.

Re: The churchy ending... I think they tried to be fairly pan-religious by having several different religious artifacts in the church's office there. FWIW. It could have been more overtly Christian, probably. (And ha, Kate laughing at the name Christian Shephard! I like that Darlton were able to make fun of themselves and it worked. And not in an annoying elbow-you-in-the-ribs way like Exposé or Arzt talking about the "cool kids.")

Anyway, it was an amazing ride. THANK YOU for everyone who's taken this ride with me. It wouldn't have been the same without you. I might not have kept watching this long. And I definitely wouldn't have this intense love of the characters. And so many great friends.

Also: I TOTALLY meant to put in my prediction poll that Claire would give birth. AGAIN. Because you just knew they had to go there, *sigh*. At least we didn't see anyone ELSE getting born! But there was so much I couldn't even begin to predict.

HEE at the alternate endings on JKL!

Oh, I'm so glad you liked it! I loved it, too, and I thought about you and all the people I still love on LJ that I met through LOST. I'm of two thoughts about Claire giving birth again, because on the one hand, ugh, more of LOST's obsession with babies, right? But on the other, I love that Claire and Aaron were what connected Kate to all this, not some shippy romantic moment. Friendship and family triumph! :)

Aww, yay! I'm so happy so many of us "old timers" were pleased the the finale. Because lord knows we've had our issues all along, LOL! I think they really did right by the fans (at least, those who care about the characters over the mysteries.)

And, aha, excellent point about Kate and Claire's connection. I hadn't thought of it that way but that is refreshingly original, not to make Kate be all about her romances. Of course, it means it's all about babies and motherhood (as well as friendship) but I'm okay with that. It was, really, the most important relationship of Kate's life, wasn't it? Esp. since she had such a crappy mother herself. (But then, didn't they all?)

Yeah, I'm glad we all seem to have gotten what we wanted out of it, for the most part. It seems natural that we would value the characters over the plot, in our corner of the fandom, but it's still nice to feel validated. I've seen discussion on some blogs and a lot of people being very angry... and I've also seen some amazingly lucid explanations for the "unanswered" mysteries from people who were satisfied with the end and yet still feel the plot was well-served.

Honestly, plot-wise, I think hey, the pilot introduced a bad guy, and we beat it in the last episode. That's all I need to know ;)

I've become a huge gen fan in the last year or so, so it was worth a lot to me that friendship played a big part in the end. I especially loved Juliet and Jack's connection :)
