    moral of the story:

    if you are in a major plane crash, even though things look kinda whacky, you're dead. deal with it.

    They answered that question way earlier this season. I have been watching the show since it began. The ending was solid.

    I watched the first episode, season 1 when it first aired but never followed it. It seemed interesting at the time.

    I thought I set it to record on my DVR. I ended up recording the pre-show by mistake! WTF?

    The ridiculous number of commercials is why I stopped watching TV.

    I watched it last night and it was full of commercials. But the whole ending was a major disappointment. If I were one of the Oceanic survivors and I found out that it was only about Jack, I'd be pissed the hell off! This show is the biggest letdown...

    I liked the whole episode. Very emotional. Love how they brought a lot of some old members back. Very good ending.

    Loved the ending as well. I think it was the best way to do it by giving us closure with the characters. Not explaining what exactly the island is was fine with me for two reasons. 1. In life you don't always find out the answers to everything. It's likely that none of the people involved really knew what the island was. 2. I don't think many people would be happy if they did explicitly explain the origins of the island. Aliens? Some sort of diety? The truth is you just can't win everybody with these highly anticipated finales, and I think they did a fine job of giving us emotional closure. That's what was most important I think.

    Actually, the whole show wasn't about Jack, Jack was just the constant... In addition, that was an ABC thing, because the creators wanted to kill Jack at the end of the first episode of season 1.


    And for the record, they weren't on the island because they were dead. They met up at the end because they were dead. The "flash-sideways" that we were experiencing all season wasn't a "flash-sideways," it was actually a form of purgatory. That's why Christian said "Everything you experienced, happened." It's also why Jack saw the plane fly off right before he died. Claire, Kate, Sawyer, Miles, Richard, and Lapidus all got off of the island and lived their lives. Hurley and Ben stayed on the island and protected/ran it. This was proven by Hurley's line to Ben "You made a good number two." and Ben replied, "You made a great number one."

    I was honestly surprised with how well they tied it up, considering how the show lost its footing for quite a while. Granted, they didn't answer all of the questions, which means they didn't have a solid idea of exactly what they wanted when they first started the series.

    What!?! So he DOESN'T look like that? hmph
    W/E.

    Season One was all I ever watched. It was great because- well- J.J. Abrams was behind it- just like Alias season one...they both went downhill for me after that....

    So- in the end they all really died?

    I was very satisfied with the ending. I was prepared for it to go down to the final MIB/Jack battle at the very end, and that they didn't do that was alright with me. I expected jack to open the coffin and find himself in it.

    All in all, it was a great end to the show. In the end, the show was really about faith, in whatever form it was, and was true to that.

    i hated, hated, hated the ending. this was a perfect example of writers who think they're clever when in reality they're just trying to make stuff up as they go along, hence why not all "mysteries" are explained because i bet they forgot about half of them...

    forget about the fact that a hydrogen bomb goes off that apparently works (according to dead Juliet), forget the fact that there's suddenly a temple on the island with others, forget the fact that man in black spends the entire season trying to kill off the candidates and then doesn't care when jack is chosen... all those plot holes are nothing compared to the finale.

    for starters, the show basically says everything that happened on the island was pointless. it trivialized every aspect and rather than answer questions it goes the "dream sequence" route, which is the biggest cop-out there is in writing. second, the final shot indicates that they all died on impact; however, if that were true, then none of the events on the island would have occurred because they all would have gone right to heaven world and never met. that means the last shot is superfluous and in an attempt to create "multiple" ways to interpret the ending, it in facts dismisses any logical ending. so basically the point of lost is people get "invited" to the island by jacob, which is after many, many people and experiments have been on the island, though none of those matter to the writers, to replace him, a whole bunch of adventures happen and people die trying to protect this magical island, and then it doesn't matter because the island isn't important, the point of it is never explained, and all that is important is that all the dead people eventually come together and go to heaven in a sucker punch that i couldn't stop laughing through (though so many people apparently found worthy of crying). that and it all reverts to blatant religious allegory that is as subtle and well-crafted as sarah palin's attempt to stay away from the media.

    colleges kids could write a script with more poignancy than these dudes who had a power trip on their self-created intelligence and worth. the only thing more depressing than how bad this ending was is the fact that so many people seemed to enjoy it.

    FAIL!!!1!

    @rangard Calm down a get a dvr recorder. and ps-Lost won and Emmy for it's music.

    I was still a little confused and slightly let down at first, but my BF and I talked it over a bit and I think the ending was done quite well.

    They didn't all died on impact with the crash.
    I think everything that happened, happened. That is why they kept saying the phase "Whatever happened, happened"icon_wink.gif

    The timeline isn't a straight line. People died at different times and then they all met back up when they were all ready to move on. This is why people had their revelations at different times.

    The only thing that i'm upset about was the fact that viewers had been saying that they were all dead for such a long time and the writers said that the answer wasn't going to be that simple and that you can't see anything on the show in terms of black or white and in reality the show was a battle of black vs white and they were all dead.
    All in all, it was a great show.

    and I LOVED the Final Transmissions and Target commercials!
    ie:
    "Roses are red, Violets are blue.
    4 8 15 16 23 42"

    The black smoke monster swarming around the beach and then they cut to a smoke detector... I was floored

    I have to disagree with the final shot of the wreckage meaning that they all died on impact (or even suggesting it). To me it was more of a sentimental look at where it all began. I hate to bring this show up in comparison, but FRIENDS did something similar by showing all of the empty sets at the end.
