Lost Finale


Below contains spoilers from the season finale of Lost. Read at your own risk.

Tonight was a good night to stay home and enjoy the flood of season finales from major TV shows such as Lost and American Idol. I didn’t really care about American Idol (although I was flipping back and forth) because I was thrilled about Lost and to get some of the questions answered. However as usual, that didn’t happen; in fact, it left me with so many unanswered questions instead. Here are my thoughts:

• Although there weren’t major death counts as was promised but Charlie’s death was the biggest of them all even though we have seen that coming according to Desmond’s visions. I wished they killed Locke instead of Charlie.

• Apparently, Jack’s flashbacks that manifested tonight’s finale seemed to imply that those flashbacks are actually events that happened in the future. It seems Jack, Kate, and the others have indeed got off the island and returned home. Thus, I would assume that the upcoming seasons of Lost would state the story of the survivors post the island’s events. That means the island will no longer be the main setting of the show anymore.

• However what about Ben’s warning to Jack regarding communicating with the people of the boat? Are they bad people?

• At the Looking Glass Station when Charlie contacted the boat, I was surprised that Penelope (Desmond’s ex-fiancé) was the person to receive the signal. It seems she was searching for Desmond all the time. However, when she denied that she doesn’t know who Naomi is, I was baffled. Who is Naomi anyway and why she said that airplane of Oceanic 815 was found crashed somewhere?

• Finally what is the situation behind Walter’s surprise appearance? And what about the big statue of the foot with the four toes that was revealed during season 2 finale? And the black “foggy” monster that killed Ico?

Again too many questions than answers and we have to wait until February of next year to get some answers. In the mean time, keep those Lost’s theories coming.

    I think the person Jack went to see at the funeral home is Sawyer. I just have a gut feeling that its sawyer in that casket.


  2. I don’t follow Lost, the main reason was because of too many questions and not enough answers!

    i teared when Charlie died. you’re right i wish they killed locke instead.

    February is a loooooooooong time to wait 😦

    What about Jack referring to his father, who is supposed to be dead, in the future scenes who now seems to be alive?!


  5. LOST last night was a great season finale! Definitely some wicked mind games. Haven’t quite figured out where they are going, so it has accomplished it’s goal. That is -keeping me tuned in when the next season starts. I liked the end. I have been reading that the castaways are in some kind of weird time loop maybe. Because remember when Charlie heard that the computer was programmed by a musician? Like some kind of weird Deja Vu?


  6. I stopped watching lost after season 2, do you think its worth watching again? Have they gotten the series back on track?

    i think kate ment sawyer when she said ‘ive got to go, he’ll be wondering where i am’ at the end. i think its dhamer in the other boat. i expected the final scene to be of a helecopter landing and the japanese bloke off the videos to get out. not looking to happy either. micheal and walt must be on the island still coz the only way off is on the sub, not a small boat. the finale didnt answer any questions at all. very good tho and i cant wait for season 4.


  8. @Vik
    I don’t think so since the last scene with Jack and Kate, she said “He’s expecting me.” I bet she was talking about Sawyer.


    But it’s a damn good show 🙂

    It’s an eternity that what it is.

    That’s a clear example of the unanswered questions that I was talking about.

    A time loop? That’s an interesting theory. Yes, the finale was really good and I hope the show keeps its momentum.


    I still recommend LOST to anyone and I believe you will get hooked all over again after the finale of Season 3. There are some great awesome episodes in Season 3 but some others you don’t really see the points. So yes, go and burn LOST DVDs…believe me…it’s good.


    Same here ^_^


  9. Posted by TSY on May 26, 2007 at 8:35 am

    I think the person in the coffin is Locke since he’s the de facto new leader and probably responsible for the delay in everyone’s rescue.


  10. I dun care about any of these mysteries, I jus wanna know who the heck is Jacob!!! No wait, WHAT the heck is Jacob!!!!

    and didn’t anyone notice that Ben’s friend -4got his name- has met ben when he was so little!!! And he still young and alive?!!!!

    and what’s the story of that eye patch guy who doesn’t die!!!

    again, I dun care about any of those 😛 I wanna know who the heck is Jacob.


  11. @Blasha:
    his name is Dr. Richard Alpert, he sure indeed met Ben when he was little, and he didn’t change at all, same face, same eyebrows, perhaps his age doesn’t change at all, i dunno, i’m LOST !


  12. I heard there was an arabic novel that was stolen from an ancient book and it’s called “jazerat el qadar” and it’s jus like LOST and whoeva wanna know how lost ends should read that novel, but I have no idea how to get ma hands on it or how to understand the arabic I’m goin to read!!!


  13. Locke over Charlie? Are you insane?!


  14. So damn confused over the whole finale show. MY how did John get shot so many times and live.. were those blanks??? Sheesh and YES I assumed that they made it off the island.. but the whole cast is living in Hawaii still and filming there. The island is not over yet! The litle boy could that have been EKO re-incarnated or something.. It sure was not the kid that got away on the boat with his father..they never did tell us what happened to them and they said they would.. This show SUCKS at letting us know things for sure.. I continue to tape it and try to take it apart to figure it out though. : (


  15. Posted by waffle on May 27, 2007 at 2:58 am

    well… Locke only got shot once, and it was in his upper arm…so i think that is why he didn’t die. Also I think that Sawyer and Kate are married in the future, and that the coffin was for either the older black woman,Rose.. or for michael/walt? unless eko and/or his younger brother are some how still alive. orrr maybe the coffin is for Ben? It’d have to be someone pretty unpopular, since no one came to the viewing.

    The boy who appeared to Locke was most likely walt.. you can’t forget it’s been a couple of years since the start of the show, and the poor boy is smack dab in the middle of puberty. hahah

    I hope that charlie didn’t actually die. even though even if he didnt drown..Mikhail’s grenade probably killed him. (or maybbbbbe it allowed him to escape. hehehe)


  16. Because Jack refers to the need to go back to the island to Kate, I think not all of them got off the island, hence Jack’s sense of guilt. Maybe Kate, Jack and some others somehow cut a deal with the people that arrive on the boat. I also think the person in the casket may be Kate’s mom.


  17. Posted by Erin on May 27, 2007 at 4:02 pm

    Sawyer is in the casket i think he screwed kate over and that is why she doesn’t want to go the funeral maybe she was pregnant afterall… Charlie is dead…maybe… I think that not all of them got off the island and that is why jack wants to go back… ben is crazy and maybe “jacob” is his split personality…. who knows… i love this show!


  18. Posted by TomH on May 27, 2007 at 7:53 pm

    Hey, well at first I wasn’t following the flashes of Jack’s life at all lol, I assumed it was previous to the Island, I then had thought it was the woman he saved in the casket because she had died in surgery but then confused that no one had gone then the last flash back just knocked me completly out of whack. I was also shouting at the tv nearly for Charlie to open the door and get out because I really didn’t want him to die, I mean why lock yourself in!?!?! Also the question is raised what is happening to the Others? I mean the most important ones got killed at the beach and they have Ben hostage! Can’t wait for Feb!!


  19. Posted by waffle on May 27, 2007 at 9:35 pm

    wait a minute..wait a minute.. hasnt anyone seen the frozen screen shot of Jacob? he’s sitting on a chair in the old cabin..and actually looks a lot like Tom, one of the others.


  20. Posted by bootney farnsworth on May 27, 2007 at 11:50 pm

    it was ben in the coffin. jack didn’t heed his warning about the danger of calling in that copter, something bad happens to a bunch of the castaways, he feels responsible.
    kate always hated ben, tho, (wanted to kill him earlier in episode) and thus the pointed response of ‘why would i go to HIS funeral?’ to jack.
    just a theory.


  21. Posted by hobo on May 28, 2007 at 1:53 am

    interesting, but I don’t think you really grasp whats going in the show?
    How were you baffled when penelope appeared? we know she’s been searching for desmond all along, and that she is super rich. Walt is a manifestation of the island in Lockes subconscious.
    And I don’t think there was any “implying” that Jack’s flashbacks were indeed set in the future, that was quite quite obvious


  22. Posted by cheese on May 28, 2007 at 5:11 am

    Why the hell didnt charlie swim out of the window it was big enough!! and if he could get down to the station he should easliy be able to swim back up!!!


  23. Posted by cleverclogs on May 28, 2007 at 7:35 am

    I think the person in the coffin is juliette bcoz jack gt so upset with the death and kate wudnt want to go c juliette for obv reasons!! I also think that kate had to get back to sawyer…but the thing that confused me was that in jack’s flashes (in the future) he referred to his dad as still being alive!!!
    Quote: “well u go up there and bring my father down here and if im more drunk than him u can fire me!” (nt exactly rite)
    and this is the same flash as in the future!! maybe his dad did nt die and he really was standing on the beach like a million episodes ago…??

    Another insane plot cud be that it was the past and they re-crashed and forgot they were there the first time!!! who knows apart from the writers???

    But my main point was that his dad is alive in the so-called future!!!


  24. Posted by sizzle on May 28, 2007 at 12:05 pm

    i love lost, but it really confuzzles me!!
    there are loads of theories- and i got confused when Jack told the head surgeon that his dad was probs more drunk than him (i thought he was dead!!!)
    don’t care how confused i get- just gonna have to wait until i can watch it again


  25. “I wished they killed Locke instead of Charlie.”

    what are you smokin’? Locke is the best character on the show.


  26. “I think the person in the coffin is juliette bcoz jack gt so upset with the death and kate wudnt want to go c juliette for obv reasons”

    The ad said “Man Found Dead.” Unless she had a sex change I highly doubt it.


  27. Posted by timmy joebronksly from canada on May 28, 2007 at 8:55 pm

    the black smoke the island and anything like that are all jacob though ben says he can talk to jacob he really can’t and i believe that is in direct correlation with walters appearance

    and what niome said about flight 815 already being found was reaffirmed by lockes dad


  28. Posted by teddy on May 28, 2007 at 11:26 pm

    I think Jack’s comments about his Dad were just drugged out ravings. It was in the future and he was trying to pretend his Dad was still around to justify his drinking and drug problems.


  29. about the casket : with 3 more seasons to go, I think the person in the casket is someone we haven’t even been introduced to. It could be Ben for all we know, turning good and saving Jack for some reason.


  30. Not a CHANCE the next series will be based off the island…

    The fact is, theres still stuff that needs to happen. We KNOW they’ve contacted someone off the island, but we also know those people weren’t sent by Penny – so who? Ben comments suggest its something else (Dharma?) – this all needs to come to its conclusion.

    I can visualise some ridiculous scene with Desmond running along the beach shouting “Nooo!” to Jack as he’s talking on the Walkie Talkie. Maybe they’ll realise and allow Ben to turn some sort of jamming signal on?

    Either way, I’d be very very suprised if this was the end of the Island!


  31. Posted by Siguario on May 29, 2007 at 8:03 am

    I think it was Locke in the Casket. I think he left the island, became paralyzed once again and committed suicide. I think Jack was so depressed because he finally realized that Locke was right. The Island was his destiny. Also, I think Jack would resent Locke’s death because he was the one person who would want to go back to The Island, which Jack obviously does as well.


  32. Posted by Marty on May 29, 2007 at 8:55 am

    Here we go, no particular order. Remember Desmonds vision. Claire and the baby get off the island because of Charlie dying, so he sacrificed himself to ensure that.
    Naomie said Oceanic 815 was found with everyone dead, bt didn’t Lockes dad say it was deep in a trench and only seen by remote subs. This must be a set up by the all powerful ohers. The person who answered the phone to Jack answered as Bucholski (or something like that) Sounds awfully military.
    The time loop is starting to make sense, maybe Jack wants to go back to the island because he thinks he can fix things. It would allow them to explain an awful lot.


  33. Posted by thegaffer on May 29, 2007 at 1:04 pm

    Some musings…

    1. I think the people on the boat will be Dharma – I agree with Marty that they will likely have some military link, how else would they have battled with the “hostiles” in earlier flashbacks?

    2. Did anyone notice how flashforward Kate had few visible freckles? Could be she did a deal with Dharma / others to return to civilisation under an alias which would explain why she is a free woman.

    3. Jacob said to Locke, “Help me”. Could Jacob be a prisoner of the island, using the black smoke to find someone else to take his place? Maybe that is why it takes the place of those who the Losties care for or have some inextricable link with (Jack and his father, Locke and Walt, Eko and his brother)?

    4. I wouldn’t worry about the guy in the coffin – methinks there will be many more deaths when the boat people reach the island…after all, the cast needs to make room for some newbies

    5. All I hope is that Walt’s reappearance won’t signal a return for Michael.

    6. Any guessing that Penny’s dad has something to do with Dharma? Would explain how Naomi got a picture of Desmond and Penny, and don’t forget he also had some links with the British Army (Desmond was dishonorably discharged). He is also, lest we forget, very rich indeed

    Any in agreement?


  34. Posted by CStorm on May 29, 2007 at 2:29 pm

    Penny’s dad for sure has something to do with the island, maybe even dharma. remember the scotch that he drank in front of Desmond that Charlie gave him ON the island??

    No idea who the person in the coffin is, perhaps Ben makes the most sense if no one showed up.

    I wonder where in the world Jack and Kate were when they met in the future. The whole “golden ticket” thing is quite bizarre really. That means that Naomi might be lying about the boat and finding the Oceanic flight with all dead passengers.

    I didn’t want Charlie to die, and I wonder about death on that island, what is death there and why are so many people that should be dead still alive like Michal (the russian), Locke and whoever. So maybe Charile will be ok.

    I still need to know these things:

    Polar Bears??
    Black smoke and Jacob?
    What is Dharma for real and what is the island? Is it a time warp, hell (like lockes father implied) or some sort of magical place where people can heal when they tune into the island like Locke? Not everyone has that gift (like Ben) so it’s quite peculiar. Maybe it’s the afterlife in general? Maybe it’s a place where people can have a second chance…too many questions


  35. Posted by Jian on May 29, 2007 at 5:10 pm

    Next season off the Island? Why? They flip from Island to the real world, and from past to present to future. Why would it be any one place?


  36. Posted by Id on May 29, 2007 at 9:26 pm

    Here’s some support for Ben being in the casket: Jack is clearly obsessed with returning to the island. Jack may see Ben as the only one who can get him back there, and would therefore be distressed to the point of suicide by his demise. Also jives with Kate’s relative indifference to the death.

    I have a lot of trouble coming to terms with the incredible stupidity of the others who still follow Ben’s orders right up to the end. It’s clear he is running a few palm-trees short of an island.

    Oh, and raise your hand if you didn’t see Sawyer murdering Tom a mile away? Sawyer’s quickly becoming the cold-blooded killer he always wanted to be. Hey, my mommy always told me I could be anything I wanted when I grew up. It’s kind of inspiring…


  37. Posted by Id on May 29, 2007 at 9:30 pm

    Oh yeah, and our dear friend Penny – She said she wasn’t on a boat. But she certainly was in the Season 2 finale, right? And another gripe – couldn’t Charlie at least *tried* to swim out the hatch window and up to the surface? He didn’t have to stand there like a goon and act like drowning is a happy peaceful death. If Heroes teaches us anything, it is that you can have a finale that wraps up all the major story lines while still leaving plenty of opening for the next season. Lost should take a few tips from them…


  38. Posted by AHH on May 29, 2007 at 11:43 pm

    omg dude LOST is so interesting lets hope next season will solve all this crap… still got a while damit


  39. Posted by Rex on May 30, 2007 at 2:00 am

    Charlie didn’t try to break out because he wanted to make sure everything happened exactly as Desmond’s vision – he was afraid that if he departed from what was “supposed” to happen, Claire and the baby wouldn’t get off the island.

    Lost is quite frustrating and I’m not sure it will be worth the effort in the end. All I can say is that if I wasn’t able to download all the episodes off the net, I wouldn’t bother watching it on TV.


  40. Posted by Jason on May 30, 2007 at 12:47 pm

    Why does Charlie have to match Desmonds vision? He didn’t match it previously and Naomi still parachuted in. If I was Charlie I would say – “The visions don’t seem 100% accurate. lets just play it by ear…”


  41. aye, but Jason, you’re not Charlie, are you brotha?

    Ben in the coffin would make the most sense. he was Jack’s way back to the island. and remember, the funeral director asked Jack, “friend or family” and Jack answered “neither.”

    great finale…certainly gets you stoked for next season. favorite moment: Hurley on the walkie telling Jack he saved everybody.


  42. I actually pretty much predicted the flip from flashbacks to flashfowards, in my review the week before of Charlie’s Greatest Hits … but I thought the finale was sheer genius … http://paullevinson.blogspot.com/2007/05/lost-season-3-finale-flashforwards.html

    Why was the coffin so small? It was not your standard adult-sized coffin. Ben is short though…what do you think?


  46. Posted by miri on May 31, 2007 at 9:38 am

    Jack´s father is not dead: During season 1 jack finds the coffin near the caves an when he opens it…. IT IS EMPTY!. Anyone remembers that?


  47. Posted by Sarah on May 31, 2007 at 11:43 am

    I think they did all die in the plane crash in the real world and the island is some sort of limbo. When the return to the real world, time is reversed to before the plane crash, but their memories of the island remain intact.

    In the coffin, how about Locke? They hated him, but Jack for some reason regrets that he did not heed his warning about leaving.

    I look forward to the next season to find out!


  48. Posted by aniche on June 1, 2007 at 12:36 am

    i dont think it was any of the chief characters.There are stil two or three more seasons to go.It’s somebody yet to come.The casket was conspicuously smaller in size.Could have been Ben.Maybe we see him turn good.Who knows?One thing is for sure.LOST kicks everyother show’s ass!!

  49. Posted by bk on June 1, 2007 at 7:37 am

    i think that da person in the coffin is Ben nd he helped jack nd kate gt off the island by stricking a deal with the boat but kate still hates him for leaving sawyer there nd jack still hates him for leaving julliet and the other people there so he says that he is neither friend or family and who would go to bens funeral anyway.


  50. Posted by i say on June 3, 2007 at 2:35 pm

    i’ll tell u whos in the coffin… the person in the coffin is john LOCK. what i think is everyone hated john cause john all he had was the island and he didn’t want anyone to leave. so what did jack and them do they killed him. john and ben are like crazy they see crazy things. john is in the coffin. john and them kill him they bring him back and on his furnaral no one went cause john tried to stop people from leaving the island. jack said we had to go back and they refer too… that i don’t know


  51. Posted by tailie108 on June 5, 2007 at 11:07 pm

    Just want to point out something nobody has mentioned yet…the neighborhood that Jack was in was very “ghetto”. In fact, at first I thought he had driven there to buy some drugs, then I realized he was going to a funeral home. So, whomever was in the coffin would most likely live in that neighborhood…


  52. Posted by AJ on June 16, 2007 at 5:48 pm

    In the coffin it has to be michal or rose more of mike because jack said not a friend or family. Mike probably got off the island when ben gave him the boat and mike got home and said everyone else is dead and sent no help and the name of the funeral home if you mixup all the letters it makes flashfoward


  53. Posted by DoJo on June 17, 2007 at 8:13 am

    Quote: “well u go up there and bring my father down here and if im more drunk than him u can fire me!” He’s talking about his dead father (upthere “in heaven”).


  54. Posted by #53 on June 18, 2007 at 10:46 pm

    aj u bring up a good point there i never thought of that The Producers aren’t gonna let Mike have no part i think hes got something to do with the coffin.

    ben says history is going to repeat itself if these boat ppl come to the island (wen all those darhma people were killed he was refering too) so i believe its the darhma people on the boat, and maybe there trying to get there island back or to stop ben (he says it’ll b the begining of the end) … i dont no im probly wrong

    The person in the coffin is prolly lock, i doubt ben would leave the island i think he’d die before leaving, or maybe its some1 completely different.. they didnt show us so they’ll probly strech out them leaving the island .. mayb there’l b new charachters ??

    ANd with charlie, he wanted to escape he was getting desmond to prepare the diving equiptment.. he culda easily opened the door … they’d have plenty of time to escape , it wasnt that big of a hole.
