Overall: The SPOILER ALERT has never been as important in Lost history as it is today, considering four major characters got the deep six. And as sappy as this episode got, it was pretty sad. Hence, it’s hard to feel too excited today, even though the events were quite monumental. Ultimately, the reality is setting in that no matter how awesome this show wraps up, it’s going to be totally depressing to have it come to an end. This show is the highlight of the work week. I wish it didn’t have to end.
Discussion Points: 1) How is Locke/The Smoke Monster planning to “finish what he started” if he supposedly can’t kill the candidates? 2) Why is Jack so obsessed with fixing Locke’s spinal injury in the flash sideways even after he saved his life? 3) Sad day in Lost history; Lapidus finally got dusted. I really hoped he would reveal some redeeming purpose on the show, but he died in vain. So, what was the purpose of Lapidus, simply to have a pilot around in the event they ever decided to build a runaway and fly off in the remnants of a crashed 747? 4) It’s a foregone conclusion now that Sayid died, but wasn’t he already dead? That’s confusing. Man, I can’t believe Sayid is gone. This sucks. (sigh)
