The end of Lost

I watched this series from the beginning. I followed every twist and turn... I mean mostly lost but still I watched. Last night as I lay in bed watching the finale I was thinking YES!! This is great.

Then they entered the church. Then Jacks dad opened his mouth. That is when my brain shut off.

I couldn't sleep for a long time. I couldn't figure out if I just watched the second best finale ever (Six feet under was the best) or if I was totally ripped off.
Did the writers just tell me that Lost = people in limbo making stuff up in order to redeem themselves enough to go into heaven? That everyone I had just watched were dead from the beginning? That the island never happened? Or did it happen and the sideways world was limbo?
My brain raced into the wee hours of the morning until I finally fell asleep.

This morning.... I still don't know what to feel. There is a part of me that embraces the fact that this group of people waited for each other to ascend.
There is another part of me that is kind of pissed off. With questions.
Why was Penny in the church?
Why wasn't Vincent in the church?
Where was Richard? Did he actually exist at all?
Blah blah blah.....

So I think I will watch this episode again. Maybe then I can make up my mind if I enjoyed the ending or not.

Although.. regardless.... Best regular tv show ever!!

I have to admit to being a tad bit weepy today....


  1. I COMPLETELY agree with you about the Series Finale of Six Feet Under. I cried and cried and cried. I don't watch Lost so I have nothing to offer, but I can say that the Series Finale of The Sopranos had me MEGAPISSED. It sucks when you are in love with a show then they screw you over with the finale.

  2. I didn't watch either series but was curious to see what your take was on Lost. Pretty much in line with other people I have talked to about it.
