Seriously, if you haven't watched last night's series FINALE of LOST you should stop reading right now because I am going to spoil the end. Sorry, but it's my blog and I can do that. You have been warned .. so don't go reading this and then leave a comment that says "OMG you totally ruined it for me!"
Six years ago I started watching LOST.
For the first two seasons I was totally, absolutely hooked on this show.
Nothing could pull me away from the television.
Then it all started going crazy ... more and more people were added to the island, and the flashbacks got stranger and then the whole time travel thing started and well...I gave up on LOST.
This season, I decided to go back to the island and see if I could fall in love all over again.
And, I did.
Yes, the show was still crazy...but this season really seemed to focus on the 'core' group of people who pulled me in six years ago.
Once again, I cared about these people.
I wanted them to be rescued.
I wanted Jack and Kate to be together and for Sun and Jin to live happily ever after.
Little did I know that THEY WERE ALL FREAKIN' DEAD (or would at least end up DEAD by the end of the show...all of them...D.E.A.D).
OK....I admit. I kind of knew that they WERE dead. I suspected all along that they were dead and this whole 'island' thing was like a purgatory (What? you know you thought that too! That was only my THEORY - clearly it was wrong).
But I was NOT prepared for THE END last night. (Damn that dog Vincent....when he was laying next to the dying Jack that was IT for me. I was sobbing like a mad woman).
Last night's episode was brilliant and funny in places ("I believe in Duct tape") and so incredibly sad that I'm still hoping today they'll say "Wait! We have an alternate ending and they ALL LIVE!!!!"
I am a sucker for happy endings and that, my friends, was not a happy ending for me. A room full of dead people ready to 'move on' does not equal happy. That's just my take.
And today, I am still left scratching my head in total confusion ... about many, many things. (For the record, I did Tivo the finale and will be watching it again. And again. Looking for more answers.)
How about you?
Did you watch?
What is still confusing you?
Did you think this was how it would end?
