I have no doubt hundreds of thousands world wide have blogged, twittered, discussed, phoned or emailed about the final episodes of ‘LOST’……but I just have to say my two bobs worth. LOL
After 6 years of watching this show religiously (coz I knew Id never catch up if I missed an episode) I watched the finale with great anticipation. Im not entirely sure ‘what’ I was expecting……but what we were given…..well I wasnt entirely expecting that!!!!
So on the 22nd September 2004, Oceanic 815 crashed onto our screens introducing us to a variety of characters and an island. An island, we were soon to find out, that had its own unique quirks.
Our new found friends were not alone on this island…..in fact we were presented with an intertwining story of creatures, from the polar bears and ‘others’ to smoke monsters and possibly ‘gods’…..HUH!!!!
Over the years we are introduced to many red herrings, theories, hidden clues, circumstance, fate and diabolical plans, and I could go through each of them giving an explanation, but in the end, none of it really mattered.
Only one thing mattered. The relationship the losties formed with each other. Their time on the Island was so significant that they each waited around in ‘pergatory’ (which we viewed as the ‘flash sideways’) for each other. While each of our losties was ‘awakened’ in pergatory we saw the final moments of life on the island.
It all ended on the 23rd May, 2010, with Hurley taking over from Jacob as the ‘keeper’ of the Island, of Ben taking over from Richard as the second, Jack completing what he was ‘meant to do’ and passing into pergatory while watching Frank pilot flight Ajira 316 off of the island with Kate, Sawyer, Claire and Miles onboard and being kept company by a dog named Vincent.
Yep…….’worse than Yoda’ as Hurley said.
