Yes, I know that there is already a Lost thread, but a lot of people haven't seen the end yet, so this is one that we can discuss the ending, what we think happened, when did they ACTUALLY die, etc..

So, what did all of you take away from the ending?

Well, here's the main thing I took away from it, and I like it:
Despite all the twists, all the turns, all the near-death situations, all the mysticism, all the supernatural occurrences, the show was all about the characters, completely and definitively. And that's how it ended.
A bit different than I thought it would be, but all things considered it felt nice going down. I really had NO clue what to expect, it's been such a saga, haha.

I also loved the ending cut being the reverse of the opening cut in episode one. That was genius.
Who wrote the blood and water chapter anyway? Probably some surly dad, only child, thirty cats.

I didn't like the flashsideways conclusion. I was satisfied with the main story conclusion.

It was so fantastically delightful. But the one thing that really gets me is the reunion at the church with Hurley and Ben. How did they die after Jack but arrive before he did? And who was Jack's "son"?

It doesn't matter when they died. The "afterlife" is beyond time and started after all of their deaths.

I loved the ending, but I do have one question. Where was Walt and his dad in the end at the church?
#7
So I'm guessing Ben is now the number 1..and that's why he didn't enter the church? Is that what that was about?

edit: nevermind. he's dead as well.

I thought everyone in the flash sideways was dead, so I assume he was dead too.

I guess it makes sense why Locke told him that he doesn't have a son... still, I think I need time to put this all into perspective.

He has to be dead, that's why he's there. I think he just doesn't feel like he belongs with that group. And the whole Hurley and Ben becoming Jacob and Richard thing was great.

They answered this as far as Michael is concerned x_x
He's stuck roaming the island for eternity. Walt probably wasn't 'ready' to move on. Besides, if Michael wasn't in purgatory, it wouldn't have made sense if Walt was on the plane. He would've been in Sydney still with no reason to leave.

Guys I don't think what we think matters too much...you know why?

Because whatever happened happened.

Was she in the church?

If not then I'm sure she will since remembering is part of moving on.

I think that since Walt and Michael weren't important to them that they didn't need to leave with them, because Jack's dad said that in the church were the people that were most important to him and he had to leave with them, or something to that effect.

Michael is stuck wandering the island whispering and Walt got old.

They were embracing in the church, and they sat down together, didn't they?
Unless I'm already remembering it wrong.

Really? I'll have to watch it again... but I distinctly made a note that he and Charlotte never had a "flash" moment together, although he looked at her longingly when they met before the concert because he DOES remember, but she just smiled politely as if she was meeting him for the first time. It was painful to watch actually.

I like what Matthew Fox said about people needing to find out how they died before they can move on. That in itself explains a lot coupled with what Kimmel said.
#24
That was a terrible ending IMO. It seemed like they didn't have a way to wrap it up so they were like... uhh... they're all dead. Plus, it didn't explain why Walt wasn't there, or why Ben didn't come into the church. I would have thought that Ben would have felt more accepted by the group after helping save Desmond and being Hurley's "Richard" for most likely a very long time. Also, where was Richard? I haven't watched the Kimmel thing yet, so I don't know if that explains more, but I was incredibly disappointed with it.
#25
I was incredibly disappointed. The writers obviously had no idea what was going on for quite a while, and just threw something together. The premise of them all being in purgatory or something in the alternate reality has way too many holes to be believable.

Honestly, I haven't really liked the show all that much since the first couple seasons, when it was more science-based, or at least science-fiction, rather than turning into mysticism and magic and religion. The finale (not to mention the last half of this season or so) encapsulated pretty much everything I disliked about the later seasons. Big letdown.

I never watched lost but I know the writer was known for not having definitive endings to his stories. Can someone just confirm something for me who is an avid lost fan? They all died in the plane crash and the island was their afterlife?

I thought it was fantastic.

Lost was always about the characters, the mysteries were simply devices to push them forward.

It was always about the journey, not the end.

Lost was always about the characters, not the island.

The flash sideways was a meeting point in the afterlife, whatever you believe that to be. Notice behind Christian when he's talking to Jack the stain glass window with symbols from the 6 major faiths.

It was always about Jack accepting his fate. Everybody dies Jack just so desperately needed a purpose for his life, the island gave him that.

Same - I remember loving the first season then wishing it had ended there instead of introducing a second! I'm still intrigued about what happened though, they all died huh? What's that about?
#31
They all died but not at the same time. The alternate timeline in the last season was sort of a purgatory... a place they could meet up after death. Some died before Jack, some after him, some of old age, some of other causes.

Everything that happened, happened.
