Warning: If you haven’t seen Lost‘s final episode and are planning to, don’t read this first.
A couple of years ago I began watching Lost, a television drama that began with an amazing plane crash on a deserted island. I thought the premise was great, the shots were very cinematic, and the acting was quite honestly better than we’re used to on most television programs.
By partway through season 1 and the beginning of season 2 I was losing interest fast. Storylines got more and more convoluted, every answer brought at least 2 new questions, and ridiculous things were hapenning to fairly important characters. The flashbacks were also starting to drive me nuts. I really was losing patience on the show. Luckily, the librarian at my school is a Lost nut, and filled me in on the important story lines.
Well last week, my faith in the producers, writers and directors was restored! I would rank last week’s episode up there with all-time best finales on TV ever!! (Two exclamation points seemed necessary) Things finally started to happen, Jack finally started killing Others, and a major character was offed. Again, if you don’t want spoilers stop reading, but check out some major drama in the following list:
– The little hobbit Charlie was killed in an underwater accident. He sacrificed himself for others. I would agree this was not really necessary, as he could have closed the door from the other side, or swam out the hole to the surface.
-Jack got violent. He nearly beat Ben to death, and threatened to kill the big bearded jerk.
-Hurley and Sawyer rescued Sayeed and a couple of other guys by killing others left and right
– the underwater observatory’s scrambling messages were turned off.
– the parachutist was killed by John who saw Walt (where was he all year?)
– Jack phoned in the coordinates of the island to a nearby boat (which may or may not be a good thing)
– Jack’s flashbacks turned out to be flashforwards after getting home from the island. He’s not happy he got off!
I can’t wait until next season!!
