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!

I loved that they all waited for Jack, and the church too. I love the movie Places in the Heart for that final scene of the husband and the man that killed him sitting next to each other in church..because in the end, they were tied to each other and they were at peace, the both of them.

I'm a huge sap for reunions so to see them all happy and that they created the sideways world so they could all find each other...OMG, I know I shouldn't but I LOVE IT.

If you're a big sap, so am I! It made me so happy -- although while watching it I was sobbing my heart out about Jack. And Vincent!

because in the end, they were tied to each other and they were at peace, the both of them.

I know. *sniffles* Peace is absolutely the right word there. I feel at peace with the show and the years I spent watching it and I'm so happy so many of us are on the same page. Feels good! ♥ Thanks for taking the journey w. me!
