On September 22, 2004 my family and I sat down to watch the pilot episode of a crazy show we had been seeing previews for. From the teasers all we knew was that a plane crashed on an island and there were survivors and that they were ‘Lost’. What we saw left all of our jaws on the floor. The island epic began with a premier you could never dream of topping. Watching Matthew Fox as Jack Shephard stumble out of the jungle onto that beach and the chaos that ensued really made you feel ‘in the moment’. You were just as confused as he was! My Mom had the foresight to ask on that first night “What did they lose?” and she couldn’t have been more prophatory. Our interest in the series waxed and waned over the years but we generally kept up with the happenings and I did my best to keep us in the loop by periodically checking out theories and reviews online. Last night we watched the series finale and had our collective minds blown by the revelations within. It was revealed that the characters were not just literally lost, they were lost in purgatory! Since the end of season five everyone has been living in purgatory waiting to make peace with themselves and move on to another realm and last night they finally got to do that. The emotional ending with everyone greeting each other like long lost friends in the chapel was great and the final scene of Jack lying down and dying in the jungle the series started in was a great way to bookend the series. A lot of questions in the greater Lost mythos remain unanswered still and this will surely leave a few fan boys disappointed, but overall I think the ending was very fitting for the characters and the plot the story told. What about you? Were you pleased or pissed at the Lost finale?
