LOST

May 23, 2010

In case you missed it… you know. Spoilers below.

So. Lost. The end.

What?

Here’s how I understood it: Jack died of his wounds from battling the Smoke Monster/Locke on the island after being spit out of the light-hole. Kate et al got off the island, lived, and died. The parallel universe… is purgatory, I guess. Where they worked all their shit out and then came together and went to heaven.

… I think they screwed it up. The last episode was so good… right up until the end. They would have been better off with a Sopranos-style cut to black.

What was the point? What was the light? What does it do? Why did moving a rock make it go out? How did moving the rock again make it come back? Who built that little chamber? Who engraved the rock? Where’s the light come from? What was with the parallel reality? Did they live out their entire lives in it, or or just the bit after the landing of Oceanic 815? Why did the parallel reality only come into existence after they exploded the nuke?

Was Walt really totally pointless?

Just like this show to, even in the last episode, give us more questions than answers.

MY LIFE HURTS.

And I’m really going to miss this show.
